White Lightning

This song is by Def Leppard and appears on the album Adrenalize (1992).

No promises, no guarantees
When you come down here you're already on your knees
You wanna ride White Lightnin', then just sign your name
If you wanna dance with the devil, you gotta play his way
(Play the game)
You gotta taste that sweetness 'cos you can't say no
But are you ready for the nightmare when you can't let go
Like a soldier of fortune when the money runs dry
You've got rivers of bitter tears
(In your eyes)

You wanna leave but you can't let go
You wanna stop but you can't say no
(You never laugh about it, you just can't live without it)
You've had enough but you just want more
You never get what you're looking for
(You never laugh about it)
Never

You've got both ends burning, like a moth to a flame
You're going off the rails like a runaway train
It's a no-win situation and there's no way out
And no one will ever hear you - Scream and shout

You wanna leave but you can't let go
You wanna stop but you can't say no
(You never laugh about it, you just can't live without it)
You've had enough but you just want more
You never get what you're looking for
(You never laugh about it)
Never

Run - He's coming to claim you
Run - Nowhere to hide away
Run - You dance with danger
Run - Oh you gotta ride

The White Lightning - On a dead end street
White Lightning - Where the deadbeats meet
White Lightning - It's a one way ride
White Lightning - Oh, there's nowhere to hide

Such a lonely road you ride
It's not easy when you don't know why
Such a heavy load you hide
You never leave no matter how you try

Run - He's coming to claim you
Run - Nowhere to hide away
Run - You dance with danger
Run - Oh, you gotta ride

The White Lightning - On a dead end street
White Lightning - Where the deadbeats meet
White Lightning - It's a one way ride
White Lightning - Oh, there's nowhere to hide
White Lightning - Can you feel it, can you feel it?
White Lightning - It's so dangerous
White Lightning - No promises, no guarantees
White Lightning - 'Cos when you come down here boy, you're already on your knees
White Lightning - Both ends burning, like a moth to a flame...
