Everybody shake

Everybody groove

Mary, Mary, you’re on my mind

The folks are gone and the place’ll be mine

Mary, Mary, wanna be with you

And this is what I’m gonna do

I’m gonna put a call to you

‘Cause I feel good tonight

And everything’s gonna be right, right, right

I’m gonna have a good time tonight

Rock and roll music gonna play all night

Lost In The Shadows (The Lost Boys)

Performed by Lou Gramm

Say hello to the night
Lost in the shadows
Say hello to the night
Lost in the loneliness
Say hello to the night
Lost in the shadows
No one knows

I can’t wait, I can’t wait, no
When I see little lights in the shadows
One must hide when the sun gets higher
I don’t know what this madness means
Here comes the night
The bedroom in shadows
Candle lights
I don’t know where it’s coming from
But I, I keep moving on
Till the darkest thought makes me want to try these wings

[chorus repeat]

Loneliness pours over you
Emptiness can pull you through
Did you go to sleep with the light on?
I can’t wait for this feeling to free me, yeah
Wind blows hard but it doesn’t matter
‘Cause when the sun goes down
Nothing else matters
The line is where the night lies
I will wait outside her window tonight

[chorus repeat]

Say hello to the night (Lost Boys)
Lost in the shadows
Say hello to the night
Lost in the loneliness
Say hello to the night
Lost in the shadows
No one knows (The Lost Boys)

Huh huh huh huh huh huh huh Lost Boys
Huh huh huh huh huh huh huh Lost Boys

Loneliness pours over you
Emptiness can pull you through
Did you go to sleep with the light on?
I can’t wait for this feeling to free me

Say hello to the night (Lost Boys)
Lost in the shadows
Say hello to the night (Lost Boys)
Lost in the loneliness
Say hello to the night (Lost Boys)
Lost in the shadows
Say hello to the night (Lost Boys)
Lost in the loneliness
