Once upon a time I was falling in love But now I'm only falling apart There's nothing I can do A total eclipse of the heart Once upon a time there was light in my life But now there's only love in the dark Nothing I can say A total eclipse of the heart.
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.
But it was long ago and it was far away, Oh god, it seems so very far. And if life is just a highway Then the soul is just a car. And objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are.
Come on, come on! And there'll be no turning back! You were only killing time and it can kill you right back. Come on, come on! It's time to burn up the fuse. You got nothing to do and even less to lose.
Every time I see you, all the rays of the sun Are streaming through the waves in your hair And every star in the sky is taking aim at your eyes Like a spotlight.
The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling Way down in the valley tonight. There's a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye And a blade shining oh so bright. There's evil in the air And there's thunder in the sky And a killer's on the bloodshot streets.
Oh baby you're the only thing in this whole world That's pure and good and right And wherever you are and wherever you go There's always gonna be some light.
Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night I can see paradise by the dashboard light.
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'm never gonna make it without you Do you really wanna see me crawl ? And I'm never gonna make it like you do Making love out of nothing at all.
Ain't no doubt about it We were doubly blessed Cause we were barely seventeen And we were barely dressed.
Baby, baby let me sleep on it Let me sleep on it And I'll give you my answer in the morning...
It never felt so good, it never felt so right And we're glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife.
And we'll never be as young as we are right now
It's all we ever wanted And all we'll ever need And now it's slipping through our fingers Faster than the speed of night.
