Take me out tonight
Where there's music and there's people
Who are young and alive
Driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven't got one
Anymore

Take me out tonight
'Coz I want to see people and I
Want to see life
Just driving in your car
Oh, please don't drop me home
'Coz it's not my home
It's their home, and I'm welcome no more

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure, the privilege is mine

Take me out tonight
Take me anywhere, I don't care
And in the darkened underpass
I thought, oh god, my chance has come at last
But then a strange fear gripped me and
I just couldn't ask

Take me out tonight
Oh, take me anywhere, I don't care
I don't care, I don't care, I don't care
Just driving in your car
I never never want to go home
Because I haven't got one
Haven't got one

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure, the privilege, is mine

There is a light and it never goes out (to fade)

    General Commentsad sad song. i won't say it's better than the orignal, but his neil's voice makes this more than what it was previously, which was a hopeful, yearning love song into something more dark and desperate.
