White Lightning Lyrics

No promises
No guarantees
When you come down here you're
Already on your knees
You wanna ride White Lightnin', then just sign your name
If you wanna dance with the devil, you gotta play his way
(Play the game)
You gotta taste that sweetness
'Cos you can't say no
But are you ready for the nightmare
When you can't let go
Like a soldier of fortune
When the money runs dry
You've got rivers of bitter tears
(In your eyes)

You wanna leave but you can't let go
You wanna stop but you can't say no
(You never laugh about it, you just can't live without it)
You've had enough but you just want more
You never get what you're looking for
(You never laugh about it)

You've got both ends burning
Like a moth to a flame
You're going off the rails
Like a runaway train
It's a no-win situation
And there's no way out
And no one will ever hear you - Scream and shout

[Repeat Bridge]

Run - He's coming to claim you
Run - Nowhere to hide away
Run - You dance with danger
Run - Oh you gotta ride

The White Lightning - On a dead end street
White Lightning - Where the deadbeats meet
White Lightning - It's a one way ride
White Lightning - Oh, there's nowhere to hide

Such a lonely road you ride
It's not easy when you don't know why
Such a heavy load you hide
You never leave no matter how you try

Run - He's coming to claim you
Run - Nowhere to hide away
Run - You dance with danger
Run - Oh, you gotta ride

The White Lightning - On a dead end street
White Lightning - Where the deadbeats meet
White Lightning - It's a one-way ride
White Lightning - Oh there's nowhere to hide

(White Lightning)
Can you feel it? - Can you feel it?
(White Lightning)
It's so dangerous
(White Lightning)

No promises
No guarantees
(White Lighning)
When you come down here boy,
You're already on your knees

i think this song is about steve clark his nickname was white lightning but this can also apply to anyone in steve's situation if u drink or do drugs that is riding the white lightning but besides the pointg it is a great song even though it is a bit on the dark side.

a great tribute to Steve... but why does everyone hate Vivian? he's an awesome guitarist plus, he's not responsible for Steve's death so people... just give him a break. it's almost been 20 years
