Take me out tonight
Where there's music and there's people
Who are 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 light

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

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into 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
But then a strange fear gripped me and I just couldn't ask

Take me out tonight
Oh, take me anywhere
I don't care, I don't care, I don't care

Driving in your car
I never, never want to go home
Because I haven't got one
I haven't got one
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die

And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us, so what
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure, the privilege is mine

Oh, there is a light, never goes out
There is a light, never goes out
There is a light, never goes out
There is a light, never goes out
There is a light, never goes out
There is a light, never goes out
There is a light, never goes out
