SUNGLASSES AT NIGHT
Corey Hart

I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can so I can
Watch you weave then breathe your story lines
And I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can so I can
Keep track of the visions in my eyes

While she's deceivin me
It cuts my security has
She got control of me
I turn to her and say

Don't switch the blade on the guy in shades oh no
Don't masquerade with the guy in shades oh no
I can't believe it!
Cus you got it made with the guy in shades oh no

And I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can so I can
Forget my name while you collect your claim
And I wear my sunglasses at night
So I can so I can
See the light that's right before my eyes

While she's deceivin me
She cuts my security
Has she got control of me
I turn to her and say

Don't switch the blade on the guy in shades oh no
Don't masquerade with the guy in shades oh no
I can't believe it!
'Cus you got it made with the guy in shades oh no

She's deceivin me
She cuts my security
Has she got control of me
I turn to her and say

Don't switch the blade on the guy in shades oh no
Don't masquerade with the guy in shades oh no
I can't believe it!
Dont be afraid of the guy in shades oh no
You cant escape you
Cus you got it made with the guy in shades oh no

Oh no

I say I wear my sunglasses at night
I wear my sunglasses at night
I wear my sunglasses at night
I say it to you now

I wear my sunglasses at night
I wear my sunglasses at night
I wear my sunglasses at night
I cry to you

I wear my sunglasses at night
I wear my sunglasses at night
FADE

    The songs about a totalitarian police state which forces people to wear their sunglasses all day and night. Pretty cool government I think!

    this song is about LOVE. i dont care what anyone else says that is my opinion. the guy trys putting on a tough exterior, by not really showing his feelings ( thats what he means by wearing his sunglasses at night)
    and the girl takes advantage over the way he feels, and she never lets him forget about her, also in the song when he says "And I wear my sunglasses at night
    So I can so I can
    Keep track of the visions in my eyes" in my opinion that means, hes wanting to keep all the memories of him and her. and eyes are a big part of love also. neways this song has a very deep meaning. if you just listen to it. and some people might not look at it the wayi do. but this song is awesome no matter what neone says. just listen to it.

    chacha: you nare right that the song has a deep meaning but your synopsis that the song is about a masquerade of feelings could not be more wrong. I will translate this song as I would a shakespearean play:

    I wear my sunglasses at night (I go undercover so I can watch you)
    So I can so I can
    Watch you weave then breathe your story lines (watch what you do)
    And I wear my sunglasses at night
    So I can so I can
    Keep track of the visions in my eyes (again so I can watch what you do )

    While she's deceivin me (she is telling lies/leading me on or cheating )
    It cuts my security has (it hurts me and creates insecurities)
    She got control of me
    I turn to her and say

    Don't switch the blade on the guy in shades oh no (dont hurt me [i.e. hurt me like cutting me
    with a knife] . . . especially when im in shades/ undercover and watching you)
    Don't masquerade with the guy in shades oh no (dont masquerade things/hide things because I'm watching you)
    I can't believe it!
    Cus you got it made with the guy in shades oh no

    And I wear my sunglasses at night
    So I can so I can
    Forget my name while you collect your claim (collect your claim meaning: "you dont turly love me" because you hide things from me)
    And I wear my sunglasses at night
    So I can so I can
    See the light that's right before my eyes (I watch unnoticed: so I can see what is really going on)

    while shes decievin me .. .I turn to her and say I wear my sunglasses at night/; I KNOW what is really going on.
