Dark Lyrics


1. Hot Breath


There's a heat wave steaming, somebody's screaming
This ain't no place to walk alone at night
She looks every inch a lady, talk about gun crazy
Hey don't point that thing at me

(Smile for the camera, do your striptease, the looks of an angel)
She ain't no dime a dozen (she is the look)
You never did a thing that your mamma said (no no)
Your teacher cried and your daddy wants to know where he went wrong
So wrong
Sweat it out

Hot Breath, warm me from the storm outside
Hot Breath, like a switchblade cutting through the air (still night air)
Hot breath, turn my pain to pleasure when my body cries

City hot and sleazy, take it slow and easy
Squeeze the trigger, pump it right on time
Ease the gun down babe, you know my safety's off
Move your sweat drenched body close to mine


Oh down there on the streets
I'm burning from the heat
Shooting hot lead, hear it call
Be there, catch me when I fall


2. Poor Little Rich Kid


Roll the top back, hit the road
That young boy is too well protected from the heat
(like beer in a cooler)
No time for work, it's party time
He's too busy living on easy street
(oh real good times)

Oh he's the hotshot in the city (hotshot)
Oh he's sitting pretty (oh yeah)
Messing around with the boss man's daughter
Oh he's never doing what he ought to

Poor little rich kid
Money can't buy a little thing called love
Poor little rich kid
Oh, oh no

Kick back, feel the beat
A bad attitude from living in the pleasure dome
(gotta major personality problem)
The streets are gold in credit zone
You could fill a book with his alibis
(and no lies, no charge)

Oh he's the hotshot in the city (hotshot)
Oh he's sitting pretty (oh yeah)
Messing around with the boss man's daughter
Oh he's never doing what he ought to

Poor little rich kid
Money can't buy a little thing called love
Poor little rich kid
Oh, can't get enough
Poor little rich kid
Sell anything, no deal too tough
Poor little rich kid
Oh oh no

Feel the heat, hear the crash
This rich kid's worlds about to turn to ash
Why trust you, deception all the while
Learning how to backstab and how to falsely smile

But everyone goes through it, and all the deals are all the same
Rip 'em off before they rip you, and no-one takes the blame
Reach for the radio, turn the dial
The DJ's talking about the high cost of living, that ain't living
So sad, so sad, burned out at 25

Oh living on Easy Street, dancing to the beat
Oh baby, take a seat, it's showtime
Get out of that one junior

3. Women And Love


It's the way they move, it's the skin tight dress
Nothing I can say that ain't already said
Turn out the lights, turn up the heat
We're going higher

They put a smile on your face, we all slave to love
Hits you like a hammer when you're already nailed
Slip down your shoes, pull down your hair
Whoa, desire

She's got the look (she's got the look)
Whoa, firing on all six
She's Miss Perfection (little Miss Perfection)
She'll tear your heart out

Nothing as dangerous as women and love
No there's nothing as dangerous as when love bites
Nothing on Earth can make you feel the way they do
No there's nothing as dangerous as women
Oh yeah
Whoa, women and love

Throw down the rule books, love don't read or write
You don't stand a chance when her body talks
You've got the feeling, you've got to know
She's Miss Temptation

'Cos the body is willing and the spirit is weak
Oh you start to burn with the fires of sin
Down on your knees, crawling 'cross the floor
No hesitation

She's got the look...

4. More Than A Pretty Face


Oh I know love is the name of the game
But what I'm feeling, well it ain't the same
Whoa, whoa, whoa, you've got me on my knees
There ain't a doctor with a miracle cure to shoot inside of me

Oh the way she talks, the way she walks
The way she throws her hair when she walks down the city streets
Its a criminal offence (oh yeah)
Oh her stiletto heeled strut could start a cardiac, oh that's a fact
She's a certified thief of hearts (oh yeah)
She's the prettiest girl I've ever seen

More than a pretty face
Smoother than a slick black limousine
More than a pretty smile
Anytime, anyplace, anywhere
(Oh you know what I mean)
Oh she's more (yeah)
more (yeah)
Oh much more than a pretty face

I know the symptoms and I've got them all
I need her affection before I stumble and fall
Oh deep down inside you know that its a crime
Just you and me on the back seat honey, we could have a hell of a time

Oh the ways she talks...

5. Boyz Will Be Boyz


Run your hands way down your body
Oh yeah you know you're feeling the thrill
Every night out on the town
You know that you're dressed to kill
Every move that you make
I think I'm falling in love

I don't need no medication, no designer drugs
'Cos when I look at you I feel your body talk

Me and the boys going wild in the streets
Looking for some back street love
Watching high heeled girls wearing teasing smiles
We all play the fool in the name of love

Don't need no doctor, no medicine man
Naughty naughty, boyz will be boyz
Slow and easy, fast and smooth
Naughty naughty, boyz will be boyz

Oh its a no win situation, we're all born with this addiction
Oh don't need no provocation
Just cant live without that body friction
You silhouette is kicking
You make me feel so proud

6. Young, Bad And No Good


Bad boy, bad reputation, late nights at sleazy bars
Nobody's gonna bring that young boy down
Midnight temperature is rising, when he cuts loose he's really flying
There ain't a girl that's safe in this town

Oh just one step inside the law
This dude knows he ain't gonna go to heaven

Young, bad and no good
Little bit hot, a little misunderstood

Don't play by the rules but he don't care, someday there'll be a price o pay
But before that boy burns it he'll have a hell of a time
Who's the hero, who's the villain, it ain't so easy anymore
While he rocks and rolls we'll tow the line


7. No Resistance To Love


Maybe my imagination, maybe I mistook the time
Maybe I can't face the fact I never saw the signs
There's a stranger in my street of dreams
Outside the day is dawning but it's raining in my heart
I've tried to turn back the hands of time but there ain't no turning back
I can't live on the street of dreams

I call out your name in the dark
I hear your voice in the shadows
I look for a love that has left me a fool
I can't resist

No resistance to love
No resistance to love
You cry for love, you die to love, but it's never enough
No resistance to love

Maybe I can make it through the pain of wasted years
Maybe I can find the strength to wipe away the tears
There's a stranger in my street of dreams

8. 1000 Nights


Same old story, only the faces change
About a young boy, too tough to fall for love
On the street he's in command
He stares in fascination
Black lace, black leather
Such a lethal combination

Bad habit, now a vice
She's cooler than a Bud on ice
Cruising to the backbeat
Halfway to paradise

1000 Nights (1000 nights)
Making out like we don't care
1000 nights (1000 nights)
1000 nights (1000 nights)
Like a one night love affair
1000 nights (1000 nights)
And the nights go on forever

He was raised tough, and tough was good enough
He never had time to give love a fighting chance
Too long on the borderline to protect him from temptation
Black lace black leather
Such a lethal combination


9. Passion And Emotion


Down on the streets again something is stirring
Something in the air tonight now the boys are back in town
You'd better run (you'd better run) when the sun goes down

Now this boys addicted, needs a physical reaction (physical reaction)
Love and hate, such emotional reactions (emotional reactions)

Higher, take me higher to the fever
Fever of the night
Oh oh, passion and emotion
Higher, take me higher, such mixed emotions
Mixed emotions
Oh oh, passion and emotion

Temperature starts rising as the lights go down
You an feel it all around, it cuts the air
When lightning strikes the heart, its time to be aware


10. One White Lie (Live Rehearsal)


Do you remember the nights, well things may come and go
But I never had a woman with skills like you possess
Its a lethal weapon that you sure know how to use
You handle it like dynamite, your kisses light the fuse
You're never alone to face the night

One white lie (one white lie)
Danger calling (danger calling me)
Oh when we touch I feel the pain
One white lie (one white lie)
Danger calling (danger calling me)
When we make love I don't feel no shame

You rehearse it well but you make me feel so good
Around you I'm like an animal with its first taste of blood
Its jungle law, no regrets is what we had
But its gotta be said, to be that good you must be bad
