You move through my body like an ocean, yeah
Didn't take you long to get to my heart
I stood on your porch in the commotoin of
The bustling city and it's busy heart
Where,I sat in your room and played my six string
Lay back and stare up at your ceiling
Well, your hair looks so good over my shoulder
We're getting older
Time has no hold on me
But she's got, she's got control over me


Tonight has lasted long enough
The sun is coming
From dusk 'till dawn we tear it up
The sun is coming out
I just want to hear your sounds
We love like vampires
You'll be lost and never found
Dance in the underground


Well I think that I've lost some of my feelings
No, I think it's you that lost some of the meaning
When the world turned around and around, yeah
The love that we found has gone drifting away
She's always drifting
She's always drifting away


Tonight has lasted long enough
The sun is coming
From dusk 'till dawn we tear it up
The sun is coming out
I just want to hear your sounds
We love like vampires
You'll be lost and never found
Dance in the underground


You know I said you never
You know I say
Oh yeah, I say it so well
You know I said you never fight fair
You're always jumping on my back
You bite my neck like a bad habit, yeah
Now it's all coming back


Tonight has lasted long enough
The sun is coming
From dusk 'till dawn we tear it up
The sun is coming out
I just want to hear your sounds
We love like vampires
You'll be lost and never found
Dance in the underground


Tonight has lasted long enough
The sun is coming
From dusk 'till dawn we tear it up
The sun is coming out
I just want to hear your sounds
We love like vampires
You'll be lost and never found
Dance in the underground

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song is about a girl he messes around with, who leaves him in the morning. They "love like vampires" because she leaves him when the sun comes up. Basically, it's about a relationship that's only about sex.

    General CommentI agree with PurplePanther, it's about a relationship that becomes so revolved around sex that it's all that there is to it. "well i think that i've lost some of my feelings, No, i think it's you that lost some of the meaning"

    My InterpretationVampires represent taking more from a relationship giving. Traditionally, vampires demonstrate "love" by killing the object of their affection in a moment of passion. They are having a ton of fun together, and definitely passion/sex, but the relationship is doomed to burn out.

    (All this is about pre-Twilight vampires that ruined the whole genre by completely ignoring classic characteristics. But I digress...)
