The atmosphere 
On the streets tonight 
Is the driving beat 
Of the world. 

The word down here 
On the streets tonight 
Is the truest music 
You've heard. 

So take your share 
Of the gifts that are there, 
They all belong to you 
And, come what may, 
At the break of each day, 
We all begin anew once more. 

We all begin anew 

[Chorus]
Baby, baby, baby
Let's investigate 
The other side of life tonight. 
The lovers and the fighters 
And the risks they take 
Are on the other side of life tonight. 
Let's lose our way, 
Go completely astray 
And find ourselves again. 
You know the only way to get there 
Is to take that step 
To the other side of life tonight. 

The atmosphere 
On the streets tonight 
Is the driving beat 
Of the world. 
The word down here 
On the streets tonight 
Is the truest music 
You've heard. 

So take your share 
Of the gifts that are there, 
They all belong to you 
And, come what may, 
At the break of each day, 
We all begin anew once more. 
We all begin anew 

[Chorus]

Let's lose our way, 
Go completely astray 
And find ourselves again. 
You know the only way to get there 
Is to take that step 
To the other side of life tonight.
