LYRICS

Take me out tonights
Where there’s music and there’s people
And they’re young and alive
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven’t got one anymore

Take me out tonight
Because I want to see people
And I want to see life
Driving in your car
Oh please don’t drop me home
Because it’s not my home it’s their home
And I’m welcome no more

aa-aaaah
a-a-aaah

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes in to us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well the pleasure the privilege is mine

Take me out tonight
Oh take me anywhere
I don’t care
I don’t care
I don’t care
And in the darkened underpass
I thought oh God my chance has come at last
And then a strange fear gripped me
And I just couldn’t ask

o-o-oh

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes in to us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well the pleasure the privilege is mine

There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
There is a light and it never goes out
