You used to stand on the tables
You used to shoot out the lights
You used to stop trucks on aisle 19
In your blue leopard tights

You got the vote of your high school
Most likely to exceed
But not likely to ever get enough
Enough of what you need

Enough of the night
Enough of the night

And now the carnival lights come down
The sounds of laughter recede
You sit and drink in this cardboard town
The fast lane gone to seed

You used to laugh about the damage done
But there was no way to know
How little distance you had actually come
And how far you'd have to go

It's tough to do baby, it's tough to make it
When the heart is naked
It's tough for you baby, it's tough for me too
Without all this pain to see through

Now I want to see you smile
You know how it's just been awhile
Don't allow another night to close
On your empty cup, you've had enough of those

Enough of the night
Enough of the night

You used to count on the miracles
The old shot in the dark
You used to wait for the setting sun
To help you hit your mark

You used to stand on the tables
You used to shoot out the lights
You dressed right out of the fables, baby
Like the Arabian Nights

But you were never the princess
More like the queen of the thieves
And my heart was never more than one of the many
A queen receives

It's tough to do baby, it's tough to make it
When the heart is naked
It's tough for you baby, it's tough for me too
Without this disdain to see through

Now, I want to see you smile
You know how, it's just been awhile
Don't allow another heart to pass
Beyond your reach, say baby not so fast, hey baby not so fast

You've had enough of the night
To fill the street with tears
You've had enough of those empty hours
To last a thousand years

Enough of the night
Enough of the tears
Enough of the night
Enough of the tears
Enough of the night
Enough of tears

She got enough of the night
She had enough of the tears, baby
She had enough of night
She got enough of, had enough of the night

She got enough of, bop bop baby
You got enough of night
You had enough of tears, bop bop bop
She got enough of
