take me out tonight
well there's people and there's music and the young and life

and driving in your car
oh please don't drop me home
because I haven't got one anymore

take me out tonight
oh take me anywhere
I don't care I don't care I dont care

driving in your car
I never never want to go home
because 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 privilage is mine

take me out tonight
oh take me anywhere
I don't care I don't care I don't care

and in the darkened underpass I thought oh god my chance has come at last
and then a strange fear gripped me and I just couldnt ask

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 privilage is mine
there is a light, never goes out
there is a light, never goes out
there is a light, never goes out
there is a light, never goes out
never goes out..

    General Commentso beautiful, I think the meanings pretty clear, a misplaced guy falls in love with a girl and she means everything to him, things are heavenly to him when he's with her. I think that when he says that there is a light that never goes out, he's saying that in life or death, he'll always love her.
