(Eric Carmen/Dean Pitchford)

Recorded by Eric Carmen
Arista AS1-9686 / 1988

I run a comb through my hair
And step out in the street
And the city's the color of flame
In the mid-summer heat
Oh yeah

Jennifer's got her daddy's car,
She's playing "Uptown" on the stereo
We go cruisin' so close,
The way they did long ago
My darlin'

(Turn) turn the radio up for that sweet sound
Hold me close never let me go
(Keep) keep this feelin' alive
Make me lose control
Baby, baby

(When) when I look in your eyes, I go crazy
Fever's high with the lights down low
(So take) take me over the edge
Make me lose control

We put the top down and park 'neath the moon
In the sky
And the wind is so hot in our hair, like a fire in July
Whoa yeah

Jennifer's singin' "Stand By Me,"
And she knows every single word by heart
Was love always this good?
Or could this be just the start?
Whoa darlin'

(Turn) turn the radio up for that sweet sound
Hold me close never let me go
(Keep) keep this feelin' alive
Make me lose control
Baby, baby

(When) when I look in your eyes, I go crazy
Fever's high with the lights down low
(So take) take me over the edge
Make me lose control

"Be My Baby" comes on, and were movin' in time
And the heat from your touch makes me feel
Like I'm losing my mind
Whoa yeah

(And then they played) "Back In My Arms" again
(We close our eyes) we start rememberin' when
(We start to kiss) and now the feeling's intense
And we just pray that this night never ends
Wohohoho, my darlin'

(Turn) turn the radio up for that sweet sound
Hold me close never let me go
Keep this feelin' alive
Make me lose control
Baaby

When I look in your eyes, I go crazy
Fever's high with the lights down low
(So take) take me over the edge
Make me lose control
Baby, baby

(Turn) turn the radio up for that sweet sound
Hold me close never let me go
(Keep) keep this feelin' alive
Make me lose control

When I look in your eyes, I go crazy
Fever's high with the lights down low
(So take) take me over the edge
Make me lose control
Baby, baby

(Turn) turn the radio up for that sweet sound
Hold me close never let me go
(Keep) keep this feelin' alive
Make me lose control
