Atmosphere – Bob Seger lyrics

Move like the night
Move tonight
But nowhere feels quite right (x2)

I pour a little more whiskey on them ice cubes
I’m tryna to get tipsy as a tugboat
Most of us getting lost in the night moves
The rest of us want to watch from the front row
Come and look into the eyes of a landslide
Let me know if your recognize blood shot red
Not above passing out in the cab ride
Wake me up when it's time to unfuck my head
Whatchu know about a party y’all still tryna have some fun
Throw your hands up like it’s two thousand and one
You wanna taste the tea, you want a place to sleep
But you need somebody else to come change the sheets
I hold composure, the snow will melt
The hope stays low cause I know myself
But I treat it like a test to keep me at my best
Rest in peace to next

Move like the night
Move tonight
But nowhere feels quite right (x2)

I ain’t as cool as I used to be leave me alone
I’m kinda blurry from the journey man, my speakers are blown
Truthfully I'd rather keep it in a zone
I could maneuver easily from the comfort of my home, but
Don’t ever let the headlights die
Stars only fall out of the dead night sky
The more I travel the farther I see
The more it seems as if my shadow ain’t following me
Now everyone’s impressed with impressions
All of y’all dressed up in the finest flesh
I’m not tryin to imply, I’m on a different page
Similar traits familiar faces
I remember the days when I felt like fightin it
Lost in the ways of my own self-righteousness
Feels like I’m still tryna find my fix before this lightning hits

Move like the night
Move tonight
But nowhere feels quite right (x2)
