​Bat Out Of Hell Live)

This song is by Meat Loaf.

The sirens are screaming and the fires were howling
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's 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 heat

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 gotta 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'll both be so alone

Well 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

When the day is done and the sun goes down
And the moonlight's shining through
Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
I'll come crawling on back to you

I'm gonna hit the highway like a battering ram
I'm 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

Nothing 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

And I know that I'm damned if I never get out
And maybe I'm damned if I do
But with any other beat I got left in my heart
You know I'd rather be damned with you

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
Dancing through the night with you
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
Dancing through the night, dancing through the night
Dancing 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 gotta 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'll both be so alone

Well 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 through
Then like a sinner before the gates of Heaven
I'll come crawling on back to you
Then like a sinner before the gates of Heaven
I'll come crawling on back to you

See myself tearing up the road
Faster than any other boy has ever gone
Well and my skin is raw but my soul is ripe
And no one's gonna stop me now, I'm gonna make my escape

But I can't stop thinking of you
And I never see the sudden curve until it's way too late, no
And I never see the sudden curve until it's way too late

Then I'm dying on 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
Breaking out of my body, flying away like a bat out of hell

Dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun
I'm 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
Breaking out of my body, flying away like a bat out of hell
Well like a bat out of hell, like a bat out of hell

Like a bat out of hell
I'll be gone when the morning comes
Like a bat out of hell
I'll be gone when the morning comes
Like a bat out of hell
