Golden Earring – A Shout In The Dark lyrics

From the Album:
* The hole
It's rainin' on a summernight
I'm gonna take a ride on a dreamboat
Don't know 'bout it's destination
Higher than the clouds & the angels
Further than a million roads forever - away
From the deathpatroll
'Cause when I close my eyes
I dream of freedom
And when I open 'em
I see a multitude of good reasons
To get the hell outa - here!
Tonight I'm breaking out
Tonight I made a vow
That any minute now
I'm gonna climb the wall of freedom on my own
Yeah - tonight I'm full of doubt
Tonight there's no more doubt
That any second now
I'm gonna face a life of treason on my own
I hear a shout in the dark
A scream in the alley
It seems like the devil runs this whole city - yeah yeah
It seems like the devil shows me no pity
I'm going home
Tried it all day lord
Time for me to kick off my working shoes
There's nothin' left to lose
Behind the tired buildings
Places that are haunting me lie lingering
Beyond the Berlin Wall
I hear it whisper I can hear it call
At night the sky for my hungry eye - hides a rainbow
Behind the concrete door
