Lyrics of Billy Idol Songs

 

(DO NOT)STAND IN THE SHADOWS

words and music by: Billy Idol/Steve Stevens, 1983

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Up in the street

To a precise beat

Painting shadows on the wall

Well, we cut cars and fly by bars

All for one and one for all

Like a teenage sleaze

A comic book tease

With your art on your sleeve

Well, you know you won't run

You won't hide

And you jump like a son of a gun

Wow

 

CHOURS

 

Do not stand in the shadows

Do not stand in the shadows

Do not stand in the shadows

Do not stand in the shadows

Oh, lonely

Oh, lonely

 

Watching people on the walls

Well, Mommy and Daddy thought that they had

me fooled

I wasn't thinking - not at all

Well I got out

I was not gonna stand

In the dark without a light

Forget ill luck

If you belive

That chance should sit and wait

 

CHOURS

 

Do not stand in the shadows

Do not stand in the shadows

Dark and evil in the shadows

Do not stand in the shadows

Do not stand in the shadows

Do not stand in the shadows

Do not stand in the shadows

Oh, oh, oh, oh

 

And now we've touched down

Moving all around

Yeah, living to a blaster sound

No preachers teachers freak out man

To the sound of false alarm

They ain't here today

Let me hear you say

You're alive and you're living with me

So, don't try to hide

Don't try to die

In the dark of the night
