There was a little girl, I used t o know her 
I still think about her, time to time 
There was a moment when I really loved her 
Then one day the feeling just died 

We went straight into darkness 
Out over the line 
Yeah straight into darkness 
Straight into night 

I remember flying out to London 
I remember the feeling at the time 
Out the window of the 747 
Man there was nothin', only black sky 

We went straight into darkness 
Out over the line 
Straight into darkness 
Straight into night 

Oh give it up to me I need it 
Girl, I know when I see it 
Baby wrong or right I need it 

I don't believe the good times are over 
I don't believe the thrill is all gone 
Real love is a man's salvation 
The weak ones fall the strong carry on 

Straight into darkness 
Out over the line 
Yeah straight into darkness 
Straight into night
