We're runners in the night, you and me
We're tryin' to find the truth baby, tryin' to get free
We're playin' with fire, but it ain't no use
Gotta have a wink baby, bustin' loose

I say we're runners in the night, you and me
Runners in the night, you and me
Runners in the night, we ain't no good till after midnight, yeah

I can take the heat baby, and I get burned
Shadows all around, uptown, you live and learn
The magic of the stars, and the neon moons
Exploding into pieces baby, yeah, much too soon
You gotta hang tough, and take it head on
You're playin' for keeps now, in the midnight sun

I say we're runners in the night, me and you
Tryin' to find the truth, but never do
Runnin' in the night, we ain't no good till after midnight

It's like the night of the living dead, everybody's on borrowed time
Ain't you gonna go crazy baby, sure enough
If you keep walkin' that line, all the time
But you know you we a choice girl, you just gotta be tough
Just between you and me, I say enough's enough

Runners in the night, you and me
Runners in the night, we'll always be
Runners in the night, we ain't no good till after midnight, yeah
