You're wide awake
You're heart beats
Sister Mary in her burning dress with God in her feet
They take and take
But no more
Cause now you gonna show em what the night is really for
And leave your heart out on the dance floor

Put your hands up
It's all right
Singing oh-oh-oh-oh
Until the sun rise

And if you can't sleep
Do it all night
Singing oh-oh-oh-oh
And don't you ever fade away

Your life is full
Of hard days
You try to hold it down
But it's more than you can take

Well those flashing lights
They shine down
It's hard as hell to keep your head in this town
So were gonna burn the place down

Put your hands up
It's all right
Singing oh-oh-oh-oh
Until the sun rise

And if you can't sleep
Do it all night
Singing oh-oh-oh-oh
And don't you ever fade away
Don't you ever fade away
Until the sun rise

Singing oh-oh-oh-oh
Singing oh-oh-oh
Singing oh-oh-oh-oh
Singing oh-oh-oh
Singing oh-oh-oh-oh
Singing oh-oh-oh
Singing oh-oh-oh-oh
Until the sun rise

Put your hands up
It's all right
Singing oh-oh-oh-oh
Until the sun rise

And if you can't sleep
Do it all night
Singing oh-oh-oh-oh
And don't you ever fade away
Don't you ever fade away
And don't you ever fade away

And put your hands up
Better put your hands up
Gonna put your hands up
Don't you ever fade away
Gonna put your hands up
Gonna put your hands up
Until the sun rise
