"Night Life" as written by and Stuart David/hoffman Price....
I was a young girl
Knew next to nothing
Living in the suburbs
And my heart was lusting

For a new way
And a new sound
Crawled over my hang-ups
In the underground

I had a break through
I had to shake you
You could've come too
To see my point of view

We got a breakthrough
It was my debut
It didn't faze you
But it meant something to me

Night life, beneath the surface
Night life, some say it's worthless
High life, instead of being
Inside, it's a song you're singing

Night life, if there's no spirit
Night life, then don't go near it
Night life, to have it over
Inside, you can find your life in the night life

If you are feeling
Like you don't have nothing
Under pressure in the cooker
With your head in the oven

There's a new way
So come on down
Life ain't never really over
When you're underground

You need a breakthrough
You need to make do
You need to come to
A brand new point of view

You need to break through
And then get wise too
Our love is taboo
And you'll be something to see

Night life, beneath the surface
Night life, some say it's worthless
High life, instead of being
Inside, it's a song you're singing

Night life, it's a heart you're racing
Night life, it's a billion daisies
Night life, it's the cash your making
Inside, you can find your life in the night life

It's beneath the surface
Some say it's worthless
It's a low gut feeling
It's the rush you're feeling

You can beg your spirit
If you let that leave it
It's the back you're breaking
Are you in for the night life

Night life, night life, night life
Night life, low life, inside
Night life, night life, night life
Night life, low life, inside

Find your way to hide in the night life
(Night life, night life, night life)
You can find a life in the night life
(Night life, love life, inside)

Find your way to hide in the night life
You can find a life in the night life

    General CommentThis song is so good it deserves a comment.
    It's quite obvious it's a discussion of a music scene but I never knew until I heard it live that verses are sung by Ana alone (with Babydaddy sometimes). She spoke about her musical influences from Manchester before the song and I think she's from new york originally so its a song about night life and the music and wanting to be a part of it I think.
