No promises, no guarantees
When you come down here, you're already on your knees
You wanna ride white lightning, then sign your name
You wanna dance with the devil, better play his game
Play the game

You gotta taste that sweetness, 'cos 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 wanna leave but you can't let go
You wanna stop but you can't say no
You'll never laugh about 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 burnin', like a moth to a flame
You're goin' 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 wanna leave but you can't let go
You wanna stop but you can't say no
You'll never laugh about 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 comin' to claim you
Run - nowhere to hide away
Run - you dance with danger
Run - oh, you gotta ride the ...

White lightning - on a dead end street
White lightning - where the deadbeats meet
White lightning - it's a one way ride
White lightning - 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 comin' to claim you
Run - nowhere to hide away
Run - you dance with danger
Run - oh, you gotta ride the ...

White lightning - on a dead end street
White lightning - where the deadbeats meet
White lightning - it's a one way ride
White lightning - oh there's nowhere to hide

White lightning - can you feel it, can you feel it?
White lightning - it's so dangerous
White lightning - no promises, no guarantees
White lightning - 'cos when you come down here, boy
You're already on your knees
White lightning - both ends burnin', like a moth to a flame white lightning - you're goin' off the rails like a runaway train ...
