You get up every morning at the sound of the bell
You get to work late and the boss man's giving you hell
'Till you're out on a midnight run
Losing your heart to a beautiful one and it feels right
As you lock up the house
Turn out the lights and step out into the night

And the world is busting at its seams
And you're just a prisoner of your dreams
Holding on for your life 'cause you work all day
To blow 'em away in the night

The rat traps filled with soul crusaders
The circuits lined and jammed with chromed invaders
And she's so pretty that you're lost in the stars
As you jockey your way through the cars
And sit at the light as it changes to green
With faith in your machine, off you scream into the night

And you're in love with all the wonder it brings
And every muscle in your body sings as the highway ignites
You work nine to five and somehow you survive till the night
Hell all day they're busting you up on the inside
But tonight you're gonna break on through to the inside
And it'll be right, it'll be right
And it'll be tonight

And you know she will be waiting there
And you'll find her somehow you swear
Somewhere tonight
You run sad and free until all you can see is the night
