Engine's running hot, I'm running back to you
Caught up in your trap and the secret things you do
Headlight flashes bright, do you remember when
We used to drive all night, well I'm coming back again

You told me we live in the shadows
You told me to hide from the light
But the last thing you said keeps running through my head
Just don't take my car out tonight

Somewhere there's a place, a road without a sign
I'm standing at the gate in a dream from out of time
Your body brushes mine, I try to catch my breath
You whisper in my ear, there's danger up ahead

You told me we live in the shadows
You told me to hide from the light
But the last thing you said keeps running through my head
Just don't take my car out tonight

Headlight flashes bright, I watch you drive away
The things we always feel are the things we never say
My engine's running hot, gotta keep on pushing through
I'm burning up inside, I'm burning up for you

You told me we live in the shadows
You told me to hide from the light
But the last thing you said keeps running through my head
Just don't take my car out tonight
