"Night In My Veins" as written by and Chrissie/kelly Hynde....
I see him standing silhouetted
In the lamp-light
I cross the street
And I quicken my pace
He cups his hands and he
Lights a cigarette
I find myself in the bones of his face

It's just the night in my veins
Oh
Making me crawl in the dust again
It's just the night
Under my skin
Slipping it in

He's got his hands in my hair
And his lips everywhere
Oh yeah
It feels good
It's alright
Even if it's just
The night in my veins

He's got me up against the back of a
Pick-up truck
Out of sight of the neon and glare
We might as well be on a beach
Under the moonlight
Love's language reads the same
Anywhere yeah

It's just the night in my veins
Oh
Making me crawl in the dust again
It's just the night
Under my skin
Slipping it in

He's got his chest on my back
Across a new Cadillac
Oh yeah
It feels good
It's alright
Even if it's just
The night in my veins
Even if it's just the night in my veins

I've got my head on the
Kerb and I can't produce
A word
Oh year
It feels good
It's alright
Even if it's just
The night in my veins

It feels good
It's alright
Even if it's just
The night in my veins

Even if it's just
The night in my veins
It feels good
It's alright

    General CommentANOTHER reason this isn't about a rape --- "He" is STANDING... lighting a cigarette... in other words HE isn't moving at all but is passive. SHE, on the other hand... is on the move - her attraction to him obvious - crossing the street (to him) and quickening her pace - she is eager! And she finds herself in the bones of his face - implies that she is looking deeply into his face and finding herself there - which NOT an alienated thing.

    But here's the clencher that this is a LOVE song...

    He's got me up against the back of a pick-up truck
    Either side of the neon glare
    It might as well be on a beach under the moonlight
    Love's language reads the same anywhere (yeah)

    "Love's language" --- this is NOT about rape. She is getting all amorous in the parking lot but feeling like she could be on a beach under the moonlight. THat's pretty romantic! I think the message here is that romance is where you find it.

    Maybe the last line about 'head on the curb' is a caution against drinking too much. heh heh.
