I remember somewhere in the rain, 
     	The faces of the passers-by, 
     	Staring faces broken blinds, 
     	I recall the situation clearly standing in a crowded car, 
     	I can feel the need in me.

     		Hold on, nightrider baby, 
     		Hold on you're a nightrider, 
     		Riding the night, searching for what is gone, 
     		Never reaching the end, so you must travel on.

     	I still see that vision of delight, 
     	While cruising on the black of night, 
     	But she keeps a step ahead, 
     	Looking out the corner of her world, 
     	Nobody ever knows a girl, who once lived along this way.

     		CHORUS: Repeat

     	Desolation degradation row, 
     	Don't let the feeling show, 
     	She's a ten a penny dream, 
     	Faces with no name and no address, 
     	Keep staring in on my distress, but she kills me with her smile.

     		CHORUS : Repeat
