Jay Ferguson – The Heat Of The Night lyrics

There ain't no heart in this city
Nothin' for a young girl, so soft and pretty

There's just the pounding of the streets now (Hey, hey, hey)
The flesh and blood, concrete and steel
They tell you love doesn't grow here (Hey, hey, hey)
But it gets so close, it feels so real

In the heat of the night
Burning up a dream together
Oh, oh
In the heat of the night
Girl, it's such a sweet surrender

Hard life
What have you done for me?
Now, the good times, baby
They sure don't come for free

But if this life is a gamble (Hey, hey, hey)
I'll roll the dice 'til I get what I deserve
They tell you luck ain't no lady (Hey, hey, hey)
You can lose your money
Just don't lose your nerve

In the heat of the night
Burning up a dream together
Oh, oh
In the heat of the night
Trying to make it last forever, ever
Oh, just make it last for the night

Ooh, yeah
You're the one that I want, girl (Hey, hey, hey)
And I'm the one who won't ever let you go
So don't you worry 'bout your heart, now (Hey, hey, hey)
'Cause we're gonna find out what they're really for

In the heat of the night
Burning up a dream together
Oh, oh
In the heat of the night
Trying to make it last forever, ever
Oh, oh

'Cause we've got time in our corner, love on our side
There's nowhere to run, but now there's nothing to hide
Don't say it doesn't hurt, it doesn't get inside
I know you feel it, honey
I can see it in your eyes

In the heat of the night
Burning up a dream together
In the heat of the night
Baby, hold me tight
In the heat of the night
