You are hardcore, you make me hard
You name the drama and I'll play the part
It seems I saw you in some teenage wet-dream
I like your get-up if you know what I mean

I want it bad, I want it now
Oh can't you see, I'm ready now

I've seen all the pictures, I've studied them forever
I wanna make a movie so let's star in it together
Don't make a move til I say "Action"
Oh, here comes the hardcore life

Put your money where your mouth is tonight
Leave your make-up on and I'll leave on the light
Come over here babe and talk in the mic
Oh yeah I hear you now, it's gonna be one hell of a night
You can't be a spectator, oh no
You got to take these dreams and make them whole

Oh this is hardcore, there is no way back for you
Oh this is hardcore, this is me on top of you
And I can't believe that it took me this long
That it took me this long

This is the eye of the storm
It's what men in stained raincoats pay for
But in here it is pure, yeah
This is the end of the line
I've seen the storyline played out so many times before
Oh that goes in there, then that goes in there
Then that goes in there and that goes in there
And then it's over

Oh what a hell of a show but what I want to know
What exactly do you do for an encore?
Cos this is hardcore
