Far off in the distance
A shape in the night, alright
On a mission of mercy
If the price is right
He tries to possess her and she bites

It's a ritual slaying
But the tables are turned
Oh no
And now he's prayin'
But it's his turn to burn

Like a thief in the night
She breaks into his heart
Like a thief in the night
She never leaves her mark

In a hotel chamber
On a cryptic note
'Cos where there's fire
There's gotta be smoke
Oh no
Footsteps in the twilight
And red nails 'round his throat

It's a ritual slaying
Without strings attached
Oh no
And now he's praying
But there's no turning back

Like a thief in the night
She breaks into his heart
Like a thief in the night
Like a thief in the night
She never leaves her mark
Like a thief in the night
Alright, alright

Like a thief in the night
She breaks into his heart
Like a thief in the night
Alright, alright
Like a thief in the night
She never leaves her mark
Like a thief in the night

Like a thief in the night...

    General CommentPure Gene. It's all about seduction. But the tables are turned. He's in for more than he bargained for.

    Very underrated song off of Crazy Nights.

    General CommentAnother extremely underrated song off of Crazy Nights. Pure Gene...pure fiction...pure rock n roll. Some of Bruce Kulick's best guitar work in my opinion.
