Running With The Night

Original and similar lyrics
The heart of the city street was beating Light from the neons turned the dark to day We were too hot to think of sleeping We had to get out before the magic got away (Chorus) We were running with the night Playing in the shadows Just you and I, 'til the morning light (We were running, running with the night) You were looking so good girl, heads were turning You and me on the town ooh, we let it all hang out The fire was in us, we were burning We were gonna go all the way and we never had a doubt (Chorus) We were running with the night Playing in the shadows Just you and I, 'til the morning light (We were running, running with the night) (Bridge) We were so in love you and me On the boulevard wild and free Giving all we got, we laid it down Taking every shot, we took the town (Chorus) We were running with the night Playing in the shadows Just you and I, girl it was so right, so right (We were running) Oh (running with the night) Just you and I (we were running) We were running with the night Playing in the shadows Just you and I, girl it was so right (We were running) Girl so right (running with the night) So right ... (Fade to end)

Shadows Of The Night

ASHLEY TISDALE
[Chorus] We're running with the shadows of the night So, baby, take my hand, it'll be all right Surrender all your dreams to me tonight They'll come true in the end You said, oh, girl, it's a cold world When you keep it all to yourself I said, you can't hide on the inside All the pain you've ever felt Ransom my heart, baby, don't look back 'Cause we got nobody else [Chorus] We're running with the shadows of the night So, baby, take my hand, it'll be all right Surrender all your dreams to me tonight They'll come true in the end You know that sometimes it feels like It's all moving way too fast Use every alibi and words you deny That love ain't meant to last You can cry tough, baby, it's all right You can let me down easy, but not tonight [Chorus] We're running with the shadows of the night So, baby, take my hand, it'll be all right Surrender all your dreams to me tonight They'll come true in the end We're running with the shadows of the night So, baby, take my hand, it'll be all right Surrender all your dreams to me tonight They'll come true in the end And now the hands of time are standin' still Midnight angel, won't you say you will [Chorus] We're running with the shadows of the night So, baby, take my hand, it'll be all right Surrender all your dreams to me tonight They'll come true in the end We're running with the shadows of the night So, baby, take my hand, it'll be all right Surrender all your dreams to me tonight They'll come true in the end We're running with the shadows of the night So, baby, take my hand, it'll be all right Surrender all your dreams to me tonight They'll come true in the end We're running with the shadows of the night So, baby, take my hand, it'll be all right...

Sad Song Night

JON BON JOVI "Destination Anywhere"
She was a little bit older I was a little bit shy But I knew how to kiss Her lips with mine Whiskey breath and cigarettes There's smell perfume and that's as good as it gets She taught me how to dance in a Spanish town She got a kick out of watching me spin round and round Stars shawn bright and the moon hung low Willie DeVille singing on the radio Well it's a sad song night With a long ago girl running through my mind It's a sad song night Ain't nothing stops time like a sad song night Sad song night She came in the room, wild flowers in her hair She lit the way with a hundred candles up the stairs We made love in a Chinese lantern room Ain't it a bitch it had to end so soon Well it's a sad song night With a long ago girl running through my mind It's a sad song night Ain't nothing stops time like a sad song It's a sad song night With a long ago girl running through my mind Another sad song night Ain't nothing stops time like a sad song night Well I never went back to the Spanish town Hung up my dancing shows And the world kept on spinning round and round I think of her when they play that song Sometimes I even sing along... Well it's a sad song night With a long ago girl running through my mind It's a sad song night Ain't nothing stops time like a sad song It's a sad song night With a long ago girl running through my mind Another sad song night Ain't nothing stops time like a sad song It's a sad song night It's a sad song night Sad song night Sad song night

Ay' place I go I got ho's there. How you gonn' go there - Model face hopped on the scene stupid Made for TV, should come wit' theme music. She play the club on a regular basis (I mean...) Had some work done in a few different places. I knew it when I seen how small her waist is Tasteless, but no matter what'chall taste is Y'all would wanna taste it Macy's make-up, shorty work the dayshift Play like she evasive. You know 'er type, always front like you can't get it Even though I heard the stories how my man hit it. My man did it in front of the cam wit' it He said he jizzed on 'er, sent 'er 'bout 'er damn business. I see 'er out an' I don't even say hi You Barkley an' Wade 'er; put 'er in your fav. five. But I'll be a liar ta' say that she ain't fine So I answer when she call an' hit me wit' that same line. C'mon.

I said I want a one night (oh!), a one night (oh!), a one night fuck. See I know this girl ain't shit, but I'm still try'nna hit. [Verse 2: Joe Budden] Yo, She keep the shades on, lookin' like she high or somethin' Love the strip clubs, I think that she bi or somethin'. Brandnamed out, closet full of lavish furs 'Cause dude's trick on 'er, she act like the cash is hers. Not at all player, I'll still jump, not foreplay 'er (dawg...) She'll fuck you if you could jump, you know, ballplayer. Share taker lookin' for a caretaker (ta' what?) Ta' lace 'er once a week, take care of that hair an' make-up. Somethin' like a cash cow, drink 'till she pass out I think I seen 'er online wit' 'er ass out. Freak shit, but look better than broads Give head better than broads Pussy get wetter than broads. So naw, can't come at baby on some cheap shit Now ay'body beat it, she come off conceited. Peep it, if she gonn' be the one you leave wit'... Do it on the low an' keep that chy'alls lil' secret. [Hook: Emanny] She said she wanna go somewhere (and get familiar) Joe no good (but I want'cha) I know this girl ain't shit, but I'm still try'nna hit.

I mean, B Cup, C Cup, D Cup, curves Groupie, chickenhead, jumpoff, birds. Ay'body onta' me, so I already know when she come onta' me She gonn' say she don't do this normally. You got 'er at the Steakhouse doin' it formally (me?!) I('ll) give her takeout, she'll take the place of a porn for me. I see Diddy ho, try'nna be in videos Real popular, she the one the whole city knows. Say it to 'er face, she gets defensive, lawyer Sendin' naked pics, exhibitionist, voyeur. Know the routine, so she leave when we finished Then I lie everytime like, "I'mma call you in a minute", fa'real. [Bridge To Hook: Emanny] It's obvious that the girl is poison She already ran through all my boys an'... I know that it would be best jus' ta' stay away But she's tellin' me... She said she wanna go somewhere (and get familiar) Joe no good (but I want'cha) I know this girl ain't shit, but I'm still try'nna hit. I said I want a one night (oh!), a one night (oh!), a one night fuck. See I know this girl ain't shit, but I'm still try'nna hit.

Running Man

AL STEWART "24 Carrots"
Before the phone hits the receiver You're halfway to the door The voice said 'get out while you can, There's just ten minutes, nothing more' Time only for the essentials Better gather them and run The false name inside the passport, The gold bars and the gun And once again they've come out of the past And though your mind is cool your heart is beating fast You've been through it all before Each time you wish a little more that you could ask What do you want from me? What do you need from me? There's no rest for the running man Why can't you let him be?' It's a long and twisting journey From the sweeping northern plains To the outcrops of the jungle Bowed beneath the tropic rains In the customs hall the officer Takes you to one side And his eyes reveal no feeling As you hand over the bribe And once again you've bought a little time And once again you're fading out of sight Still the fox is growing older As he calls over his shoulder to the night: What do you want from me? What do you need from me? There's no rest for the running man Why can't you let him be? Here, come over here Beneath a sympathetic moon We'll sit and talk over old times without a fear Another beer, from the cafes of the night The tumbling rhythms of guitars ring loud and clear One by one they've nailed the others But you always got away What it is that keeps you just that step ahead No one can say In one last raid the agents Of the dawn break down the door Of a house where you were standing Maybe just an hour before And still the thread continues to unwind You take the hidden roads that only you can find And should they come upon your tracks There's just a question hanging back you left behind What do you want from me? What do you need from me? No rest for the running man Why can't you let him be? What do you want from me? What do you need from me?
