Hysteria Lyrics - Def Leppard

Review The Song (12)



Out of touch
Out of reach, yeah
You could try to get closer to me
I'm in love
I'm in deep, yeah
Hypnotized
I'm shakin' to my knees

I gotta know tonight
If you're alone tonight
Can't stop this feeling
Can't stop this fire

I get hysterical
Hysteria
Oh, can you feel it (Oh can you feel it)
Do you believe it (Do you believe it)
It's such a magical mysteria
When you get that feelin' (When you get that feelin')
Better start believin (Better start believin')
Cause it's a miracle
Say you will, ooh babe
Hysteria when you're near

Out of me
Into you, yeah
You could hide
it's just a one way street
Oh, I believe I'm in you, yeah
Open wide, that's right
Dream me off my feet
Oh, believe in me

I gotta know tonight
If you're alone tonight
Can't stop this feelin'
Can't stop this fire
Oh

I get hysterical
Hysteria
Oh, can you feel it (Oh can you feel it)
Do you believe it (Do you believe it)
It's such a magical mysteria
When you get that feelin' (When you get that feelin')
Better start believin (Better start believin')
Cause it's a miracle
Say you will
Ooh babe
Hysteria when you're near

Come on

I gotta know tonight
If you're alone tonight
Can't stop this feelin'
Can't stop this fire

I get hysterical
Hysteria
Oh can you feel it (Oh can you feel it)
Do you believe it (Do you believe it)
It's such a magical mysteria
When you get that feelin',(When you get that feelin')
Better start believin,(Better start believin')
Cause it's a miracle, oh say you will,
Oh babe (Oh can you feel it)
Oh babe (Do you believe it)
Oh (I get hysterical)
Hysterical (Hysteria)
Hysteria (When you get that feelin')
You better believe it (Better start believin')
'Cause it's a miracle
Say you will
Oh baby
Say you will

(Get closer to me)
Get closer, baby
Baby
Closer (closer)
Closer (get closer)
Closer to me

Hysteria | Reviewer: Butch | 2/9/13

Grew up in the Woodstock era,some real awesome music back then as well as now,have been enthralled with music for over 45yrs,this is 1 of those songs that you cannot play it enough or loud enough,absolutely one of the best rock songs ever,i rate it with another 1 of the greatest- Srairway to Heaven

first time i heard it i was in love | Reviewer: Natasha | 8/30/12

the title is self explanitory.i heard it about a month or less ago for the first time (i'm barely 12).most of my favorite bands are from way before i was born.my youngest sister likes a lot of songs/bands i do including motley crue and poison.my other younger sister likes some but not as much as i do.KISS is my favorite band and i saw them once and i saw KISS and motley crue once.they were both awesome!!

Pure magic is right..to me..it's about forbidden love between two people..he's dreaming of her and she's not sure if it will work, he's pleading for her to trust him and love him, their love is a miracle and the feelings inside bring hysteria, excitement of that love they share. If she's alone tonite? maybe thats his way of saying I'm coming to sweep you off your feet and her his. My heart swells so much from this song, when this song came out, I was in the "forbidden love"...me american, him greek..so when I hear this song, I think of him and dream of him still to this day and remember the fire and the feeling of that love. Hysteria when he's near...(in my memory)....ahhh..love you Def Leppard...I'm 22 all over again everytime I hear this song.

My take on the song | Reviewer: Unknown | 5/20/12

I think this song is pure magic. It always brings back happy memories. And in reply to Lisa, this song,(At least what I think) is not about cheating. When Joe sings "I gotta know tonight, If you're alone tonight" I think it means that the girl he is singing about is probably one that is so beautiful, that god only knows who she is with. Joe, doesn't know if she is spending the night with another man or not.

Sleeping Baby | Reviewer: Mike | 10/14/11

Nothing will put a baby to sleep more quickly, soundly, and consistently than this song. Dry, feed, and swaddled a baby will always fall asleep if the volume is loud and you are dancing. Oh yeah, it is a good song too.

Def Leppard.Best.Ever | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/21/11

Hysteria - perfect.
Just saw Def Leppard in concert Sept 2011, and they sound just as they did 25 years ago, and put on an excellent show.
Epic, GO SEE THEM if you get the chance, it's worth the money.

I am suffering fron this!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/3/11


It's about pure love and lust...and wanting the first step to happen...and not knowing how to "rig" it for it to take place supposedly naturally due to a tricky back story. I LOVE this track so much!

In answer to your question Lisa | Reviewer: Trevor | 5/19/11

No, "Hysteria" is not a song about cheating. It really is a love song/rock ballad.

While most guys will always declare themselves the ultimate "Romantic Guy" they're wrong. You're right, this is a ballad. Hope you and your husband have a happy life. :)

your thoughts | Reviewer: Lisa | 3/5/11

My sister-in-law hates this song, thinks it's a song about cheating. My husband and I love it, we played it at our wedding. I don't get cheating out of the lyrics (other than maybe "if your alone tonite"). Opinions? Is it about cheating?
