(Originally recorded by Diamond Head)

[Hmm-hm-hm-hm-hmm-m
Hm-hm-hm-hm-hm]

I've gotta see you moving fast, see you come my way
See the dreams, I hope they last, never fade away
Gotta see the lights above, make it loud tonight
Gotta set it all afire, set it all alight

See the flashing lights, hear the thunder roar
I am gonna set you all alight
Gotta make it man
I ain't got a choice
Gotta fill this hall tonight

Helpless (helpless)
Helpless (helpless)
Helpless (helpless)
Helpless (helpless)

I don't know what I'm gonna do, maybe not tonight
Gotta set you all afire, gotta treat you right
I can see the flashing lights, leap before you look
Gotta hear the thunder roar, coming from above

See the flashing lights, hear the thunder roar
I am gonna set you all alight
Gotta make it man, I ain't got a choice
Gotta fill this hall tonight

Helpless (helpless)
Helpless (helpless)
Helpless (helpless)
Helpless (helpless)
Huh!

I can see the stars, but I can't see what's going on
Every night alone I sing my song just for fun
Only time will tell if I'll make it myself someday
This stage is mine, music is my destiny

Cannot squeeze the life from me, yeah

I can see the stars, but I can't see what's going on
Every night alone I sing my song just for fun
Only time will tell if I'll make it myself someday
This stage is mine, music is my destiny

Cannot squeeze the life from me
Yeah-yeah-yeah

Hoh!

[See ya
Keep it going and keep it ringing out, let it ring out
Hey, doc
Okay, turn it off now]
