There Is A Light That Never Goes Out

Original version (5:17)

Take me out tonight
Where there’s music and there’s people who are young and alive.
Driving in your car,
I never, never want to go home
’Cause I haven’t got one anymore.
Take me out tonight
’Cause I want to see people and I want to see lights.
Just driving in your car
Oh, please don’t drop me home
’Cause it’s not my home, it’s their home and I’m welcome no more

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us,
To die by your side,
Such a heavenly way to die;
And if a ten ton truck
Kills the both of us,
To die by your side,
Well the pleasure and the privilege is mine.

Take me out tonight,
Take me anywhere,
I don’t care
And in the darkened underpass
I thought: “Oh God, my chance is come at last”
Then a strange fear gripped me and I just couldn’t ask:
“Take me out tonight, yeah.
Take me anywhere, I don’t care, I don’t care I don’t care, I don’t care.
Just driving in your car,
I never, never want to go home
’Cause I haven’t got one, I haven’t got one.”

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us,
To die by your side,
Such a heavenly way to die;
And if a ten ton truck
Kills the both of us,
To die by your side,
Well the pleasure and the privilege is mine.

There is a light and it never goes out.
There is a light and it never goes out.
There is a light and it never goes out.
There is a light and it never goes out.
There is a light and it never goes out.
There is a light and it never goes out.
There is a light and it never, never, never goes out,
Never, never, never goes out.
