"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 CommentBochel can't be serious...and not love but sex or really it's about doing something that rhymes with ducking. I mean at one point she's bent over the hood of a Cadillac and he has his chest on her back. They aren’t playing hop scotch.
    Head on the curb...yeah they are probably drunk but he is on top of her and she can’t produce a word because she is at the height of sexual passion and out of breath. Or to quote another raucous song I like by Joan Osborne, "I've been on the floor looking for a chair/I been on a chair looking for a couch/I been on a couch looking for a bed." Only in this case they couldn't wait...
    For god’s sake we are talking about Chrissie Hynde here not some Disney Channel bimbo who wouldn’t know a good duck if one came up and AFLAC’ed on her. ;)
    It’s a Pretenders favorite among favorites for me.
