  • I remember somewhere in the rain,
    the faces of the passers-by, staring faces, broken blinds,
    I recall the situation clearly standing in a crowded car,
    I can feel the need in me.

    Hold on, nightrider baby, hold on you're a nightrider
    Riding the night, searching for what is gone,
    Never reaching the end, so you must travel on.

    I still see that vision of delight,
    While cruising on the black of night,
    but she keeps a step ahead
    Looking out the corner of her world, nobody ever knows a girl,
    who once lived along this way.

    Hold on, nightrider baby, hold on you're a nightrider
    Riding the night, searching for what is gone,
    Never reaching the end, so you must travel on.

    Desolation degradation row,
    Go on don't let the feeling show,
    She's a ten a penny dream,
    Faces with no name no address, keep staring in on my distress
    But she kills me with her smile.

    Hold on, nightrider baby, hold on you're a nightrider
    Riding the night, searching for what is gone,
    Never reaching the end, so you must travel on.
