Scissor Sisters – Night Life lyrics

I was a young girl,
Knew next to nothin,
Livin' in the suburbs,
And my heart was lusting,
For a new way and a new sound,
Crawled over my hang-ups to the underground.

I had a breakthrough,
Ihad to shake you,
You woulddn't come to,
To see my point of view,
I had a breakthrough,
It was my debut,
It didn't faze you,
But it meant something to me.

Night life,
Beneath the surface,
Night life,
Some say it's worthless,
Night life,
It's a state or being,
Inside,
It's the song you're singing,
Night Life,
If there's no spirit,
Night life,
Then don't go near it,
Night life,
It's a high turnover,
Inside,
You can find your life in the night life.

If you are feeling like you don't have nothing,
Under pressure in a cooler with your head in the oven,
There's a new way so come on down,
Life in limbo will be over when you're underground.

You need a breakthrough,
You need to make due,
You need to come to a brand new point of view,
You need to break through,
And then get wise to all that is taboo,
And you'll be something to see.

Night life,
Beneath the surface,
Night life,
Some say it's worthless,
Night life,
It's a state or being,
Inside,
It's the song you're singing,
Night Life,
If there's no spirit,
Night life,
Then don't go near it,
Night life,
It's a high turnover,
Inside,
You can find your life in the night life.

Beneath the surface,
Some say it's worthless,
It's a low-cut ceiling,
It's the rush you're feeling,
It can break your spirit,
If you let them near it,
It's the back you're breaking,
Are you in it for the Nightlife?

Find your way to hide in the night life,
You can fing your life in the night life.
