DANCING IN THE DARK

Live 14 Jun 2003 version


Let's dance!
One, two, three, four

I get up in the evening and I ain't got nothin' to say
Come home in the mornin', go to bed feeling the same way
I ain't nothing but tired,
I'm just tired and bored with myself
Hey there baby, I could use just a little help

Can't start a fire, you xcan't start a fire without a spark
This gun's for hire even if we're just dancing in the dark

Message just keeps gettin' clearer, radio's on and I'm moving round the place
Check my look in the mirror, wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face
Man I ain't gettin' nowhere, just living in a dump like this
There's something happening somewhere baby,
I just know that there is

Can't start a fire, can't start a fire without a spark
This gun's for hire even if we're just dancing in the dark

Sit around gettin' older, there's a joke here somewhere, it's on me
Shake the world of my shoulder, come on baby (come on baby)
Come on baby (come on baby), come on baby (come on baby), have a laugh on me

One two three four
Stay on the streets of this town, they'll be carving you up all right
They say you gotta stay hungry (ooh-ooh-oh), hey baby, I'm just about starving tonight
I'm dying for some action, sick of sittin' round here trying to write this book
I need a love reaction, baby give me just one look

Can't start a fire, can't start a fire without a spark
This gun's for hire even if we're just dancing in the dark
Can't start a fire worryin' bout your little world be falling apart
This gun's for hire even if we're just dancing in the dark
Can't start a fire, sitting round crying over a broken heart
This gun's for hire (this gun's for hire), this gun's for hire (this gun's for hire)
This gun's for hire (this gun's for hire) even if we're just dancing in the dark

Come on C!

Hey baby (hey baby)
Hey baby (hey baby)
Hey baby (hey baby)
Heeeeeeeeeaaaaaa...
