    You can't run away forever,
    But there's nothing wrong with getting a good head start
    You want to shut out the night
    You want to shut down the sun
    You want to shut away the pieces of a broken heart

    Lost boys and golden girls
    Down on the corner and all around, all around the worldIt doesn't matter where they're going, or wherever they've been
    'Cause they got one thing in common it's true
    They'll never let a night like tonight go to waste

    They're howling up at the moon and moaning under the stars
    Prowling in the alley and stalking all the prey in the bars
    It started out as a whisper but it's building right up into a shriek
    You don't say nothing but your body really knows how to speak
    And it's the backbeat of the city on a Saturday night
