Dancing In The Dark


I get up in the evening
And I ainít got nothing to say
I come home in the morning
I go to bed feeling the same way
I ainít nothing but tired
Man, Iím just tired and bored with myself
Hey there baby I could use just a little help

You canít start a fire
You canít start a fire without a spark
This gunís for hire
Even if weíre just dancing in the dark

Message keeps getting clearer
Radioís on and Iím moving íround the place
I check my look in the mirror
I wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face
Man, I ainít getting nowhere just living in a dump like this
Thereís something happening somewhere
Baby I just know that there is

You canít start a fire
You canít start a fire without a spark
This gunís for hire
Even if weíre just dancing in the dark

You sit around getting older
Thereís a joke here somewhere and itís on me
Iíll shake this world off my shoulders
Come on baby the laughís on me
Stay on the streets of this town
And theyíll be carving you up all right
They say you gotta stay hungry
Hey baby Iím just about starving tonight

Iím dying for some action
Iím sick of sitting íround here trying to write this book
I need a love reaction
Come on now baby gimme just one look

You canít start a fire sitting íround crying over a broken heart
This gunís for hire
Even if weíre just dancing in the dark
You canít start a fire worrying about your little world falling apart
This gunís for hire
