Hey driver where're we going? I swear my nerves are showing
Set my hopes up way too high, the living's in the way we die.
Comes the morning and the headlights fade away
Hundred thousand people I'm the one they frame.
I've been waiting long for one of us to say:
Save the darkness let it never fade away -
In the living daylights
in the living daylights.

Alright, hold on tight now
it's down, down to the wire
Get your hopes up way too high
The living's in the way we die.

Comes the morning and the headlights fade away
Hundred thousand changes, everything's the same.
I've been waiting long for one of us to say:
Save the darkness, let it never fade away -
In the living daylights
living daylights
living daylights. Comes the morning and the headlights fade away
Hundred thousand people, I'm the one they frame
In the living daylights
in the living daylights. The Living daylights
Set your hopes up way too high
The Living daylights
The living's in the way we die
The Living daylights
Set your hopes up way too high
The Living daylights
The living's in the way we die
