The atmosphere
On the streets tonight
Is the driving beat
Of the world.

The word down here
On the streets tonight
Is the truest music
You've heard.

So take your share
Of the gifts that are there,
They all belong to you
And, come what may,
At the break of each day,
We all begin anew once more.

We all begin anew

[Chorus]
Baby, baby, baby
Let's investigate
The other side of life tonight.
The lovers and the fighters
And the risks they take
Are on the other side of life tonight.
Let's lose our way,
Go completely astray
And find ourselves again.
You know the only way to get there
Is to take that step
To the other side of life tonight.

The atmosphere
On the streets tonight
Is the driving beat
Of the world.
The word down here
On the streets tonight
Is the truest music
You've heard.

So take your share
Of the gifts that are there,
They all belong to you
And, come what may,
At the break of each day,
We all begin anew once more.
We all begin anew

[Chorus]

Let's lose our way,
Go completely astray
And find ourselves again.
You know the only way to get there
Is to take that step
To the other side of life tonight.

    General CommentSounds more like someone trying to coax another into a suicide pact, albeit in the most romanticized way. What else but death could be on the other side of life?
