White Lightning

White Lightning

Def Leppard

No promises, no guarantees
When you come down here
You're already on your knees
You want to ride White Lightnin'
Then sign your name
If you want to dance with the devil
You gotta play his way, play the game
You gotta taste that sweetness
Cause you can't say no
But are you ready for the nightmare
When you can't let go
Like a soldier of fortune
When the money runs dry
You got rivers of bitter tears, in your eyes

You want to leave but you can't let go
You want to stop but you can't say no
You'll never laugh about it
You just can't live without it
You had enough but you just want more
You never get what you're lookin' for
You'll never laugh about it, never

You got both ends burning
You're like a moth to a flame
You're going off the rails
Like a runaway train
It's a no-win situation
And there's no way out
And no one will ever hear you, scream and shout

You want to leave but you can't let go
You want to stop but you can't say no
You'll never laugh about it
You just can't live without it
You had enough but you just want more
You never get what you're lookin' for
You'll never laugh about it, never

Run, he's coming to claim you
Run, nowhere to hide away
Run, oh, you dance with danger
Run, oh, you gotta ride the

[Chorus]
White Lightnin'
On a dead end street
White Lightnin'
Where the deadbeats meet
White Lightnin'
It's a one-way ride
White Lightnin'
Oh, there's nowhere to hide
Such a lonely road you ride
It's not easy when you don't know why
Such a heavy load you hide
You never leave no matter how you try

Run, he's coming to claim you
Run, nowhere to hide away
Run, you dance with danger
Run, oh, you gotta ride the

[Chorus]

White Lightning
Can you feel it, can you feel it?
White Lightning
It's so dangerous
White Lightning
No promises, no guarantees
White Lightning
When you come down here
You're already on your knees
