Hold me

Just a little tighter

I tell you I got it made
Never ever realized That I was lonely 'Cause working on the road can be It can be an escape Dinner in a one night stop Just meet me in the hall Take a number in my black book And promise to call, promise to call Those long nights, those bright lights Those carefree days Those long nights, those bright lights I tell you I got it made Then I saw a bright face Lit by a candle Sitting in the bar alone She filled the whole place The magic of her presence Who could walk up to her Who would even dare to give This woman-child a chase Thought my nights were getting better Just living by myself But I got hooked on love this time Now we got our own place, we got our own place Those long nights, those bright lights Those carefree days Those long nights, those bright lights I tell you I got it made

Do my thing with style
I've been livin' in the right lane Sometimes arrive a little late I've been tryin' to do the best thing People tell me I shouldn't wait There have been others travelin' the same road Get just where they want to be There have been times when I wanted to break my mould To jump into another stream I've been livin' in the right lane Seeing others cruise on by I've been tryin' to do the best thing Think I'll give the passin' lane a try Am I the kind who would run over my brother Just to get where I should be? Am I the kind to be content in my splendour After all the trouble gettin' on the freeway? I've been livin' in the right lane I've been livin' in the right lane I've been livin' in the right lane
