  BAT OUT OF HELL

The sirens are screamin' and the fires are howlin'
Way down in the valley tonight
There's a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye
And a blade shining oh so bright
There is evil in the air and there's thunder in the sky
And a killer's on the bloodshot streets
Oh and down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising
Oh I swear I saw a young boy
Down in the gutter
He was starting to foam in the heath

Oh baby you're the only thing in this whole world
That's pure and good and right
And wherever you are and wherever you go
There's always gonna be some light

But I gotta get out, I got break it out now
Before the final crack of dawn
So we gotta make the most of our one night together
When it's over you know we'd both be so alone

Like a bat out of hell I'll be gone when the morning comes
Oh when the night is over
Like a bat out of hell I'll be gone, gone, gone
Like a bat out of hell I'll be gone when the morning comes

But when the day is done and the sun goes down
And the moonlight's shining trough
Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
I'll come crawlin' home back to you

I'm gonna hit the highway like a battering ram
On a silver black Phantom bike
When the metal is hot and the engine is hungry
And we're all about to see the light
Nothin' ever grows in this rotten old hole
And everything is stunted and lost
And nothing really rocks and nothing really rolls
And nothing's ever worth the cost

But I know that I'm damned if I never get out
And maybe I'm damned if I do
But with every other beat I got left in my heart
You know I'd never be damned with you
Well if I gotta be damned, you know I wanna be damned
Dancin' trough the night with you
Well if I gotta be damned, you know I wanna be damned
Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
Dancin' through the night
Dancin' through the night
Dancin' through the night with you....

Oh baby you're the only thing in this whole world
That's pure and good and right
And wherever you are and wherever you go
There's always gonna be some light

But I gotta get out, I got break it out now
Before the final crack of dawn
So we gotta make the most of our one night together
'Cause when it's over you know we'd both be so alone

Like a bat out of hell I'll be gone when the morning comes
When the night is over
Like a bat out of hell I'll be gone, gone, gone
Like a bat out of hell I'll be gone when the morning comes

But when the day is done and the sun goes down
And the moonlight's shining trough
Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
I'll come crawlin' home back to you

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
I'll come crawlin' home back to you....

Oh I can see myself tearing up the road
Faster then any other boy has ever gone
Oh my skin is raw but my soul is ripe
And no-one is gonna stop me now—I gotta make my escape
But I can't stop thinkin' of you
And I never see the sudden curve 'til it's way too late

I never see a sudden curve
'Til it's way too late

Then I'm dyin' at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun
Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike
And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell
And the last thing I see is my heart… still beating

I'm breaking out of my body
And flyin' away
Like a bat out of hell

Then I'm dyin' at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun
Ooh torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike
And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell
And the last thing I see is my heart… still beating… still beating

I'm breaking out of my body
And flyin' away
Like a bat out of hell

Oh, like a bat out of hell
Oh, like a bat out of hell
Oh, like a bat out of hell
(I'd be gone when the morning comes)
Like a bat out of hell
(I'd be gone when the morning comes)
Oh, like a bat out of hell..........
