Late at night in summer heat
Expensive car in an empty street
There's a wire in my jacket
For this is my trade
It only takes a moment, don't be afraid
I can hotwire an ignition like some kind of star
I'm just a poor boy in a rich man's car

Et le moteur s'allume enfin
Nos vies s'enlacent
And we drive into the night
Oh le cuir doux s'en mêle
Affole ton imagination
Je te vois déjà
Dans une autre situation
Tu es company director
Une vie de famille
J'ai ce feeling qu'il y a bien plus de choses à dire

There's some kind of complication

Il lui dit

He's alone
Spends the night with his lover

Il y a des traces

Of her cologne

Tous les mots de sa maîtresse
A l'oreille sans détour
Comme une chanson d'amour

Please take me dancing tonight I've been all on my own
Les promesses d'un jour d'un soir, je les entends comme un psaume
I'm just a prisoner of love
Prisonnières de mes failles
Take me dancing, please take me dancing tonight
Please take me dancing tonight
Please take me dancing tonight


Imagine ta femme
Sa vie glisse entre ses doigts
Il y a une règle, être chasseur ou bien la proie
Il lui dira je rentre tard ses affaires partirera

But there's more than a suspicion
In this lingering cologne

Et les enfants feront la tete

And she runs a traffic light
And she drives into the night

Please take me dancing tonight I've been all on my own
Les promesses d'un jour d'un soir, je les entends comme un psaume
I'm just a prisoner of love
Prisonnières de mes failles
Take me dancing, please take me dancing tonight
Please take me dancing tonight
Please take me dancing tonight

    General CommentI heard Sting said that this song is not about stealing cars at all (that's what my local radio said). Sting was supposed to have said that the car is a metaphore for love, and Love is stolen; the girl is somewhat the car. I can' fugure it out all that well.
