King Of The Night

This song is by Ian Matthews and appears on the album Stealin' Home (1978).

You're like a fast car burnt up in a race
And sitting on blocks in this backwater place
Rested out memories bitter and proud
While the race still goes on without you somehow

Wasn't that moonlight
And the starlight just bright
And the mercury feeling
Float in the road
With your headlights
Like lovers in flight
Too fast to fall
You thought you were king of the night

So empty the bottle
And tell us some more
What do you care
If we've heard it before
Price of your victories
Cheapens the now
You were fearless and foolish
Forgotten somehow

Wasn't that moonlight
And the starlight just bright
And the mercury feeling
Float in the road
With your headlights
Like lovers in flight
Too fast to fall
You thought you were king of the night
