Living after midnight, rockin' to the dawn
Lovin' 'til the morning then I'm gone, I'm gone
I took the city 'bout one AM
Loaded, loaded
I'm all geared up to score again
Loaded, loaded

I come alive in the neon light
That's when I make my moves right

Living after midnight, rockin' to the dawn
Lovin' 'til the morning, then I'm gone, I'm gone
Got gleaming chrome, reflecting steel
Loaded, loaded
Ready to take on every deal
Loaded, loaded

My pulse is racing, I'm hot to take
This motor's revved up, fit to break

Living after midnight, rockin' to the dawn
Lovin' 'til the morning, then I'm gone, I'm gone

I'm aiming for ya
I'm gonna floor ya
My body's coming
All night long

The air's electric, sparkin' power
Loaded, loaded
I'm getting hotter by the hour
Loaded, loaded

I set my sights and then home in
The joint starts flying when I begin
Living after midnight, rockin' to the dawn
Lovin' 'til the morning, then I'm gone, I'm gone

Living after midnight, rockin' to the dawn
Lovin' 'til the morning, then I'm gone, I'm gone

Living after midnight, rockin' to the dawn
Lovin' 'til the morning, then I'm gone, I'm gone

    This has to be one of the catchiest songs ever made. Cool main riff too.

    "After midnight." Great song and sentiment. A real classic.

    I really like the story of this song (Watch the Metal works video) how Rob was staying in a room above Gelnn, who, quite late one night, was banging the main riff out continuously and keeping Rob awake. Rob finally came downstairs and said "I've got the perfect lyric for that!"

    The song refers to one night stands and gay sex. The members of this band were gay, and refer to going out in the night with their gay lover. The part of loving till the dawn refers to the sex he had. But it is an awesome tune!
