He had hair... black as a fiberglass speedboat
The morning air... was crisp as a brand new bank note
He swaggered... like asurfer on a Louisiana dirtbike
He swerved... like a trucker on the Dallas Turnpike

They were SLEEPLESS IN LOVE, they were Lovers
They were lovers, SLEEPLESS IN LOVE

She had eyes, bright as a sunlit Airstream
She told no lies, she hardly ever had a bad dream
She was calm... still as a July Willow
She was tender... soft as a K Mart Pillow

They were SLEEPLESS IN LOVE, they were Lovers
They were lovers, SLEEPLESS IN LOVE

He held her close, tight as a Harley's drive chain
Like a rose, riding on a midnight freight train
They shivered, like the streamers in a gypsy car lot
They melted, like rain on an Irish rooftop

They went crazy, crazy as a the wild wild west wind
When it chases a tumbleweed with too much top-spin
They made love like, wild horses in a hurricane
Chasing rainbows in a souped-up silver seaplane!

Repeat Chorus twice
