Lyrics

Take me out tonight

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

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 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, no no no Oh, I haven't got one

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

Oh, 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
