Cut loose like a deuce, another runner in the night

By the time we meet the morning light I will hold you in my arms

With your faith in your machine, off you scream into the night

The pier lights our carnival life forever
Love me tonight for I may never see you again

Hey now mama don’t shut out the light

Gimme something to last me, baby, ’til the morning light

When we spoke in his voice I could hear the light

Crushin’ the last lone American night
