In a discotheque at dawn
Is when it came to me
I'd been ravin' through the night
Lookin' for some company,
It was the Mambo talkin'
It's got a lot to say,
'Do you come here often?'
'Do you wanna play?'

The hitchhike into Paris
And zigzag by the Seine
The Hollywood moment
I'll never be the same

You can dance

There's a world awaiting
Way beyond the sea
How I love to travel
Baby will you come with me?

You can dance

Jump on the table
Slide down the pole
You can wear your sable
You can bare your soul

Through Reno down to Vegas
The casinos never close
To the movers and the shakers
The Tango never knows

You can dance
You can dance
You can dance
You can dance...dance...dance...dance
You can dance...dance...dance...dance

I need some inspiration
I've got a lot of time to lose

You can dance...dance...dance...dance

And then the dolce vita

dance...dance...dance...dance

In England there's a moment
One nation in a groove
You can dance
Where the music and emotion
Will make you wanna move

You can dance

. . .


Nobody knows you're here
Deep undercover
You seem a bit afraid
Why do you suffer?

Another night
A night in Alphaville

This time is made for love
Let's play together
In every bar and club
Now and forever

Another night
A night in Alphaville

You say you won't
But girl, I know you will
[Incomprehensible]
[Incomprehensible]

I'm hungry for your love
You scream and whisper
A thousand alibis
You point the finger

Another night
A night in Alphaville

Don't try to read my mind
A broken circuit
And all my hands are tied
Nobody's perfect

Another night
A night in Alphaville

You say you won't
But girl, I know you will
The world goes 'round
But here it stays the same
In second class
Nobody knows your name

Another night
A night in Alphaville

You say you won't
But girl, I know you will
I wanna live
But life ain't worth a dime
Lasting and light
Reflected in your eyes

Another night
A night in Alphaville

. . .


I can't stop from thinking
That love makes no sense
I'm burnt out from dreaming
'Bout nobody else

Midnight to daybreak
I can't believe the pain
The way you look, the way you talk
The way you walk away
Oh, I can't take

Heartache by numbers
From violet to gray
I paint all your colors
I wash them away

I live for the moment
I long for the day
You walk in my garden
You lie in my shade

Every night I run around
With every girl in town
But I would rather stay at home
If you were still around

Midnight to daybreak
I'd do it all again
The way you look, the way you talk
I'd be your lover, not your friend
Oh, I can't stand

Heartache by numbers
From violet to gray
I paint all your colors
I wash them away

I live for the moment
I long for the day
You walk in my garden
You lie in my shade

Midnight to daybreak
I'd do it all again
The way you look, the way you talk
I'd be your lover, not your friend
Oh, I can't stand

Heartache by numbers
From violet to gray
I paint all your colors
I wash them away

I live for the moment
I long for the day
You walk in my garden
You lie in my shade

Heartache by numbers
From violet to gray
I paint all your colors
I wash them away

I live for the moment
I long for the day
You walk in my garden
You lie in my shade

Me oh my
I can't believe my eyes
Everything I care about is gone I wonder why
Life is tough – no matter how I try
Tell me that I'm dreaming
Tell me it's a lie

Me oh my
Show me that you're mine
Can't you hear my beating heart, in and out of time?

(Me oh my )

Me oh my
I can't go one
What can I believe in, now that you're gone?
Ring phone ring
A telephone line
Can't you hear my beating heart, beat in and out of time?

(Me oh my)

Out of my mind
Out of the blue
Something incredible, so déjà vu
How many times, broken in two?
Maybe the same thing happened to you

(Me oh my)

Me oh my
My world gone wrong
I'm running out, running out
Of everything I want
Ring phone ring
A telephone line
Can't you hear my beating heart beat in and out of time?

(Me oh my)

Out of my mind
Out of the blue
Something incredible, so déjà vu
How many times, broken in two?
Maybe the same thing happened to you

Nothing is real, nothing is true
Wish I could say the same thing about you
How many times, broken in two?
Maybe the same thing happened to you.
Wish I could stay but I'm just passing through

(Me oh my)

. . .


I can read your lips
I can read your mind
It's all I want to hear
Why am I so blind?

And the way we were
Fatefully entwined
In a shameless world
Rock 'n' roll desire
Rock 'n' roll desire
Rock 'n' roll desire

All the things you are
In a single word
Famously inspired
Privately absurd

And the way we were
Fatefully entwined
In a shameless world
Rock 'n' roll desire
Rock 'n' roll desire
Rock 'n' roll desire

Rock 'n' roll desire
Rock 'n' roll desire

And the days go by
Morning, noon and night
Permanently wired
To a simple life

And the way we were
Fatefully entwined
In a shameless world
Rock 'n' roll desire
(Rock 'n' roll desire)
Rock 'n' roll desire
(Rock 'n' roll desire)

Rock 'n' roll desire
(Rock 'n' roll desire)
Rock 'n' roll desire
(Rock 'n' roll desire)
Rock 'n' roll desire

. . .


Long afloat on distant oceans
I did all my best to smile
'Til your singing eyes and fingers
Drew me loving to your isle

And you sang
Sail to me, sail to me
Let me enfold you
Here I am, here I am
Waiting to hold you

Did I dream? You dreamed about me
Were you hare when I was fox?
Now my foolish heart is leaning
Broken, lovelorn, on your rocks

For you sing, touch me not
Touch me not, come back tomorrow
Oh, my heart, oh, my heart
Shies from the sorrow

Here I am, here I am

I am puzzled as the newborn child
I am riddled at the tide
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Should I lie with death, my bride?

Hear me sing
Swim to me, swim to me
Let me enfold you
Here I am, here I am
Waiting to hold you

Here I am, here I am

I am puzzled as the newborn child
I am riddled at the tide
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Should I lie with death, my bride?

Hear me sing
Swim to me, swim to me
Let me enfold you
Here I am, here I am
Waiting to hold you

. . .


I'm looking for a girl who has no face
She has no name or number
And so I search within his lonely place
Knowing that I won't find her

Well, I can't stop this feeling deep inside me
Ruling in my mind
I feel no sound
Don't know where I'm bound

The scenery is all the same to me
Nothing has changed or faded
I'm a part of it, some part of me
Painted cool green and shaded

So, try to find myself
Must be the only way
To feel free

I feel no sound
Don't know where I'm bound

Well, I can't stop this feeling deep inside me
Ruling in my mind
I feel no sound
Don't know where I'm bound

I'm looking for a girl who has no face
She has no name or number

. . .


Trouble is your middle name
That's a dangerous place to be
Within your mis-en-scene
There is no sobriety

No dancing in the street
No roaming on your phone
Your taste is bitter sweet
And your Facebook is your home

Love, love, you fit me like a glove
You fit me like a glove
Love, love, I can't get enough
I can't get enough

You make me wild and weary
You make me sad
You're Myspace now in theory
You're YouTube mad

Love, love, you fit me like a glove
You fit me like a glove
Love, love, I can't get enough
I can't get enough

No dancing in the street
No roaming on your phone
Your taste is bitter sweet
And your Facebook is your home

You make me wild and weary
You make me sad
You're Myspace now in theory
You're YouTube mad

Love, love, you fit me like a glove
You fit me like a glove
Love, love, I can't get enough
I can't get enough

You'll never know what it means
Living inside my dream
Visions of so many things
A thousand violins

Love, love, you fit me like a glove
You fit me like a glove
Love, love, I can't get enough
I can't get enough

Love, love, you fit me like a glove
You fit me like a glove
Love, love, I can't get enough

Love, love, you fit me like a glove
You fit me like a glove
Love, love, I can't get enough
I can't get enough

. . .


Why must you shed such tender tears
In the evening of your years?
No other love could stem the tide
Of the loneliness I hide

Open your heart and let me live
All the promises I could give
The sun and moon and all the stars
They bow down to you whenever you pass

In a world of fading sadness
An emerald ring, a photograph
That look in your eyes, the brush of your cheek
These are the moments in life that I seek

No reason or rhyme, no presence of mind
Just a dance to the music of time

Why must you shed such tender tears
In the evening of your years?
No other love could stem the tide
Of the loneliness I hide

Inside out, upside down
Obscured by clouds, or underground
The sun and moon and all the stars
They bow down to you whenever you pass

Wherever you are, whenever you speak
These are the moments in my life that I seek
No reason or rhyme, by chance or design
Just a dance to the music of time

Open your heart and let me live
All the promises that I could give
The sun and moon and all the stars
They bow down to you whenever you pass

No reason or rhyme, by chance or design
Just a dance to the music of time

. . .


Now picture this, my point of view
In an ideal world I see the likes of you
Such as it is, babes in the wood
At the best of times I feel misunderstood

No work, no play
A million miles away
Tender is the night
I'm frantic today

No play
A million miles away
Tender is the night
I'm frantic today

It makes no sense, you'd think of me
When I'm out of place in your society
I wanna be where strangers meet
I wanna hold you at the dark end of the street

No work, no play
A million miles away
Tender is the night
I'm frantic today

No play
A million miles away
Tender is the night
I'm frantic today

Is this the end? Then let me know
Are you wanting me to stay, should I go?
Fancy words, go fast and loose
I'm too tongue-tied for the company you choose

No work, no play
A million miles away
Tender is the night
I'm frantic today

No play
A million miles away
Tender is the night
I'm frantic today

Tender is the night
I'm frantic today
