"Nightlife" as written by and Billie Joe/painter Armstrong....
Taking a ride to my old haunt
She's in my blood, I reside in my nightlife
My favorite color's candy apple, girl
And she resides in my mind and my nightlife

What's that I hear? You wanna go for a ride?
Don't be afraid, boy, to come inside
I got the thing that you want, the fix that you need
Chase this with a little lust and greed
I'll be the devil on your shoulder saying, hey boy, come on
My black heart beats crimson and clover?
Operator, operator patch my boy in
This is nightlife and I'll get under your skin

Taking a ride to my old haunt
She's in my blood, I reside in my nightlife
My favorite color's candy apple, girl
And she resides in my mind and my nightlife

What a thrill, heart beats fast
Sounds like love but you know it won't last
Cheap champagne stain on an even cheaper suit
Hope there's more in your pants than a bus route
Red velvet walls
Line the sugar-coated halls
Girls on your bar stools from late last calls
This town is filled with snakes, mistakes and whiskey shakes
It's too late I already cut the brakes

I'm rollin', strollin' into town
Is it me or am I going crazy?
This dirty city is my sugar town
My little angel of death is my nightlife

You better make a move before I get bored
If you wanna explore my vocal chord
Leave the girl a go-go dance in the cooch
One hand on my knee one hand on the hooch
Why don't you stick around for one more round?
This place is a circus and I know you'll be my clown
'Cause I'm a ring leader
I run the show
And only when I tell ya
Will it be time to go

Taking a ride to my old haunt
She's in my blood, I reside in my nightlife
My favorite color's candy apple, girl
And she resides in my mind and my nightlife

(Hey boy) She is my night life
(hey boy) She is my night life
(Haha hey boy) She is my night life
(See you later) She is my night life

    General CommentThis song is basically having a sexual relationship in which the male falls in love with the woman and she gets him drunk then has sex with him. He needs to get out before she kills him but she keeps seducing him every night.
