Jim Steinman – Bad For Good lyrics

The sea is whipping the sky, the sky is whipping the sea
You can hide away forever from the storm, but you'll never hide away from me

Chorus 1:
The icy cold will cut us like a knife in the dark
And we may lose everything in the wind
But the Northern Lights are burning, and they're giving off sparks
I want to wrap myself around you like a winter skin

You know I'm onto your scent, we're near the end of the chase
Take a look out your window and I'll be there in the night
Your love is so close that I can almost taste it

The cold... (chorus 1)

Chorus 2:
You've been living your life like a girl in a cage
And you whisper when I want you to shout
And I'll never know why you wanna go on sleeping
When there's nothing left to dream about - but you better remember
If it's something I want then it's something I need
I wasn't built for comfort I was built for speed
If it's something I want then it's something I need
I wasn't built for comfort I was built for speed

And I know that I'm gonna be like this forever
I'm never gonna be what I should
And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while
But I know that I'll be bad for good
I know that I'll be bad for good (I know that I'll be bad for good)

Your eyes are darker than sin, and I've been watching them glow
Take a chance on a promise and a roll of the dice
Put your foot on the gas, let it go, let it go, let it go

(Solo)

(chorus 2)

And I know that I'm gonna be like this forever
I'm never gonna be what I should
And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while
And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while
And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while
But I know that I'll be bad for good
(And for just a little while) I know that I'll be bad for good
(And for just a little while) I know that I'll be bad for good
(I know that I'll be bad for good)

Bad for good, bad for good, bad for good, bad for good

For the good of some thrills on a long frigid night
For the good of the fire in your soul
For the good of the kiss let me hold you so tight
For the good of getting out of control
For the good of the action and a race in the dark
For the good of those chills up your spine
For the good of the rock and the roll in your heart
For the good of what's yours and what's mine
For the good of believing in a life after birth
For the good of your body so bright
For the good of the search for some heaven on earth
For the good of one hell of a night, for the good of one hell of a night

For the good of the action and a race in the dark
For the good of the fire in your soul
For the good of the rock and the roll in your heart
For the good of getting out of control
For the good of believing in a life after birth
For the good of your body so bright
For the good of the search for some heaven on earth
For the good of one hell of a night, for the good of one hell of a night

God speed! God speed! God speed! Speed us away!
God speed! God speed! God speed! Speed us away!

Bad for good (God speed), I'll be bad for good (God speed)
I'll be bad for good (God speed, speed us away)
Speed us away, speed us away, speed us away, speed us away

The sea is whipping the sky, the sky is whipping the sea
You can hide away forever from the storm, but you'll never hide away from me

(chorus 1)

I know that you can be bad, at least a little while
But if you give me a chance, give me one little chance
And give me all the love that you should
Then instead of being bad for just a little while
Then instead of being bad for just a little while
Then instead of being bad for just a little while
I'm gonna make you bad for good
(And for just a little while) I'm gonna make you bad for good
(And for just a little while) I'm gonna make you bad for good
(I know that you'll be bad for good, you'll be bad for good)
