Oh Through the Night


The wait is done, the battle's won

So count the cost before you run

'Cos on and on your time was power

The clock on the wall ticks away the hours

Come on down, you're flyin' high

You'll never win if you never try

Stop the hate and carry the load

Come on, get this show on the road



On through the night

You can't stop me now

On through the night

You won't stop me anyhow



The stakes are high and gettin' higher

I'm flat on my face and you call me liar

I'm watching you, you're watching me

You're watching every move that I can see

My reputation's still at stake

I play it safe for safety's sake

Your ego and your promises

Are gonna fade again and again



Not anyhow



All you want to hear is the audience applause

You can't get on stage for a contract clause

And the road ahead seems a little rough

If you want to know my feelings

I say that's tough, that's tough

Your wheels ain't turnin', you're out of gas

You pay by check but they take cash

Two roads ahead but which to take

And you can't see it's your mistake

They're waitin' for you

They're waitin' for me

And what seems like eternity

It's all tradition, it'll get you yet

In rock'n'roll there's no safety net



On through the night

Goin' on and on, on and on

On through the night

You can't stop me anyhow

Oh no no anyhow
