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.
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.
