DRIVE ALL NIGHT

Outtake version 2


I lost my money, sometimes I think I lost my guts too
Babe I wish God would send me a word, and send me something I'm afraid to lose
Lying in the heat of the night, we're prisoners all our lives
I get shivers down my spine when you catch me in your jeweler's eyes

Baby baby baby, I wanna drive all night again just to buy you some shoes and to taste your tender charms
And I wanna sleep tonight again in your arms, oh yeah, oh yeah
Mmm

Now listen to me darling
Because tonight there's fallen angels and they're waiting for us down in the street
You said I'm here
And tonight there's calling strangers, hear them crying in defeat
What's your name
Well let them go, let them go, let them learn the dances of the dead
Let them go right ahead
But dry your eyes, girl, and come on come on come on come on, let's go to bed

Baby baby baby, I swear I'll drive all night again just to buy you some shoes and to taste your tender charms
And I wanna sleep tonight again in your arms, oh yeah, oh yeah
Big Man

[sax solo]
Ooh, ooh

We're really gonna start right now
There's machines and there's fire waiting on the edge of town
They're out there for hire but baby they can't hurt us now
Because tonight, tell you babe, you've got, you've got, you've got my love, you've got my love, girl
Through the wind, through the rain, the snow, the snow, the wind, the rain
You've got it, you've got my, my love, girl, you've got my love
You've got, you've got my love, oh girl you've got my love
You've got, you've got my love, oh girl you've got my love
You've got, you've got my love, girl you've got my love
Heart and soul, heart and soul, heart and soul, heart
So take it easy baby
And remember
Don't worry darling
Because you don't have to
Don't cry now (don't cry now)
Baby don't cry now (don't cry now)
Don't cry now (don't cry now)
Don't cry now (don't cry now)
Don't, don't cry now (don't cry now)
Dry your eyes, little baby (don't cry now)
Just come on and dry your eyes (don't cry now)
'Cause baby I, I'll drive all night (don't cry now)
You'll know I'll drive all night (don't cry now)
I swear I'd drive all night (don't cry now)
Through the wind, through the rain, through the snow (don't cry now)
Through the rain, through the snow, through the rain, through the rain (don't cry now)
Baby I'll drive all night, drive (don't cry now)
Because you got my love (don't cry now)
You've got, you've got, you've got my love (don't cry now)
Baby, baby, baby, well I swear I'd drive [fades out]
