The sea is whipping the sky 
The sky is whipping the sea 
You can hide away forever from the storm 
But you'll never hide away from me 
The icy cold will cut us like a knife in the dark 
And we may lose everything in the wind 
But the Northern Lights are burning 
And they're giving off sparks 
I want to wrap myself around you like a winter skin 

You know I'm onto your scent 
We're near the end of the chase 
Take a look out your window and I'll be there in the night 
Your love is so close that I can almost taste it 
The icy cold will cut us like a knife in the dark 
And we may lose everything in the wind 
But the Northern Lights are burning 
And they're giving off sparks 
I want to wrap myself around you like a winter skin 

You've been living your life like a girl in a cage 
And you whisper when I want you to shout 
And I wonder why you wanna go on sleeping 
When there's nothing left to dream about 
But you better remember 
If it's something I want then it's something I need 
I wasn't built for comfort I was built for speed 
If it's something I want then it's something I need 
I wasn't built for comfort I was built for speed 

And I know that I'm gonna be like this forever 
I'm never gonna be what I should 
And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while 
But I know that I'll be bad for good 
I know that I'll be bad for good 
I know that I'll be bad for good 

Your eyes are darker than sin 
And I've been watching them glow 
Take a chance on a promise and a roll of the dice 
Put your foot on the gas, let it go, let it go, let it go 

You've been living your life like a girl in a cage 
And you whisper when I want you to shout 
And wonder why you wanna go on sleeping 
When there's nothing left to dream about 
But you better remember 
If it's something I want then it's something I need 
I wasn't built for comfort I was built for speed 
If it's something I want then it's something I need 
I wasn't built for comfort I was built for speed 

And I know that I'm gonna be like this forever 
I'm never gonna be what I should 
And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while 
And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while 
And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while 
But I know that I'll be bad for good 
I know that I'll be bad for good 
I know that I'll be bad for good 
I know that I'll be bad for good 

Bad for good 
Bad for good 

For the good of some thrills on a long frigid night 
For the good of the fire in your soul 
For the good of the kiss let me hold you so tight 
For the good of getting out of control 
For the good of the action and a race in the dark 
For the good of those chills up your spine 
For the good of the rock and the roll in your heart 
For the good of what's yours and what's mine 
For the good of believing in a life after birth 
For the good of your body so bright 
For the good of the search for some heaven on earth 
For the good of one hell of a night 
For the good of one hell of a night 

For the good of the action and a race in the dark 
For the good of the fire in your soul 
For the good of the rock and the roll in your heart 
For the good of getting out of control 
For the good of believing in a life after birth 
For the good of your body so bright 
For the good of the search for some heaven on earth 
For the good of one hell of a night, for the good of one hell of a night 

God speed! 
God speed! 
God speed! speed us away! 
God speed! 
God speed! 
God speed! speed us away! 

I'll be bad for good (God speed) 
I'll be bad for good (God speed) 
I'll be bad for good (God speed) 
Speed us away, speed us away, speed us away, speed us away 

The sea is whipping the sky 
The sky is whipping the sea 
You can hide away forever from the storm 
But you'll never hide away from me 
The icy cold will cut us like a knife in the dark 
And we may lose everything in the wind 
But the Northern Lights are burning 
And they're giving off sparks 
I want to wrap myself around you like a winter skin 

I know that you can be bad 
At least a little while 
But if you give me a chance, give me one little chance 
And give me all the love that you should 
Then instead of being bad for just a little while 
Then instead of being bad for just a little while 
Then instead of being bad for just a little while 

I'm gonna make you bad for good 
I'm gonna make you bad for good 
I'm gonna make you bad for good 
I know that you'll be bad for good 
You'll be bad for good
