Boys are Back
Greatest Hits


The neon moon was lookin' over her shoulder
She was sippin' wine and tellin' lots of tales
When the bar flies are off the wall
It's hard to stand up straight and tall
When you're lookin' for someone to go your bail

She's puttin' the dark back into the night
She's got her heart on loose thinkin' love ain't right
The future ain't lookin none too bright
So she's puttin' the dark, back into the night

She gave her hand to a man who was only a lover
His cheatin' drove her jealously insane
Now the light at the end of the tunnel for her
Is just a memory of the way they were
And the look in her eye says she don't have to explain


You'll never know just what you'll do
When a broken heart comes from out of the blue
She's out on the run, she's ready to blow
She's out of her mind, she's losin' control

chorus (x2)
