Southside Johnny's album version
Well I've been walking through midnight, now there's no trace of dawn
I'm stuck in this moonlight, it's leading me on
My body's on fire but I can't stand the pain
This burning desire that I feel once again, hmm
Now I'm fighting with madness as I move down the street
Surrounded by sadness in midwestern heat
And the street lamps are glowing like coals in the mist
Their light keeps me moving and I just can't resist, no no
Now there's peace in this valley but none in my mind
Like a drunk in an alley, well I'm stumbling blind
With no destination at an unholy speed
I must keep on moving, try to walk off this need
Whoa whoa whoa whoa
Na na na na
