"Nightlife" as written by Chris Corner and Sue Denim....
I want to know how to survive in the nightlife
The truth and dare of the drug for the first time
I click my heels and dance with the heat rise
I want to know how to survive in the nightlife

I want to know how to survive in the nightlife
The truth and dare of the drug from the baseline
The desire that the voodoo gives to a weak mind
I want to know how to survive in the nightlife

I want to know how to survive in the nightlife
The truth and dare of the drug for the first time
I click my heels and dance with the heat rise
I want to know how to survive in the nightlife

I want to know how to survive in the nightlife
The truth and dare of the drug from the baseline
The desire that the voodoo gives to a weak mind
I want to know how to survive in the nightlife

I want to know how to survive in the nightlife
The truth and dare of the drug for the first time
I click my heels and dance with the heat rise
I want to know how to survive in the nightlife

    General CommentI'm not very good at these things, but I think the "drug" has a sexual meaning - I mean, what do you do at night? I think the song refers to one-night-stands and how to resist temptations. Also the VERY explicit visuals shown at the live performances of the song seem to underline that...

    General CommentHe wants to be free and let go of his inhibitions during those intoxicating after-parties. Its about accepting the sexual temptresses that throw thmselves @ him from all angles. Hes saying he wants to be outside of himself and succumb to watevr is around him during the night scene. Insanity and lust crowd those dancefloors! Amazing and simple song. Good day All!
