Paradise By The Dashboard Light Lyrics

Songwriters: James (jim) Steinman

Well, I remember every little thing as if it
happened only yesterday
Parking by the lake and there was not another car in
sight
And I never had a girl looking any better than you
did
And all the kids at school, they were wishing they
were me that night

And now our bodies are, oh, so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And we're glowing like the metal on the edge of a
knife
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife

C'mon, hold on tight
Oh, c'mon, hold on tight

Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night
I can see paradise by the dashboard light

Ain't no doubt about it we were doubly blessed
'Cause we were barely seventeen and we were barely
dressed
Ain't no doubt about it, baby, got to go and shout
it
Ain't no doubt about it, we were doubly blessed
'Cause we were barely seventeen and we were barely
dressed

Baby, don't ya hear my heart you got it drowning out
the radio
I've been waiting so long for you to come along and
have some fun
Well, I gotta let you know no you're never gonna
regret it
So open up your eyes, I got a big surprise, It'll
feel all right
Well, I wanna make your motor run

And now our bodies are, oh, so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And we're glowing like the metal on the edge of a
knife
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife

C'mon, hold on tight
Oh, c'mon, hold on tight

Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night
I can see paradise by the dashboard light
Though it's cold and lonely in the deep dark night
I can see paradise by the dashboard light

You got to do what you can and let mother nature do
the rest
Ain't no doubt about it we were doubly blessed
'Cause we were barely seventeen and we were barely

We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
And tonight's the night
We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
And tonight's the night

We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
And tonight's the night
We're gonna go all the way tonight
We're gonna go all the way
And tonight's the night

Okay, here we go, we got a real pressure cooker
going here
Two down, nobody on, no score, bottom of the ninth
There's the windup, and there it is, a line shot up
the middle
Look at him go, this boy can really fly, he's
rounding first and really

Turning it on now, he's not letting up at all, he's
gonna try for
Second, the ball is bobbled out in center, and here
comes the
Throw, and what a throw! He's gonna slide in head
first, here he
Comes, he's out! No, wait, safe, safe at second
base, this kid

Really makes things happen out there, batter steps
up to the
Plate, here's the pitch, he's going, and what a jump
he's got!
He's trying for third, here's the throw, it's in the
dirt-safe at
Third! Holy cow, stolen base! He's taking a pretty
big lead out

There, almost daring him to try and pick him off,
the pitcher
Glances over, winds up, and it's bunted, bunted down
the third
Base line, the suicide squeeze is on, here he comes,
squeeze
Play, it's gonna be close, here's the throw, here's
the play at the base, holy cow, I think he's gonna
make it

Stop right there! I gotta know right now
Before we go any further do you love me?
Will you love me forever? Do you need me?
Will you never leave me?

Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
Will you take me away and will you make me your
wife?
Do you love me? Will you love me forever?
Do you need me? Will you never leave me?

Will you make me happy for the rest of my life?
Will you take me away and will you make me your
wife?
I gotta know right now before we go any further
Do you love me? Will you love me forever?

Let me sleep on it, baby, baby, let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it and I'll give you an answer in
the morning
Let me sleep on it, baby, baby, let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it and I'll give you an answer in
the morning
Let me sleep on it, baby, baby, let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it and I'll give you an answer in
the morning

I gotta know right now, do you love me?
Will you love me forever? Do you need me?
Will you never leave me?

Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
Will you take me away and will you make me your
wife?
I gotta know right now before we go any further
Do you love me? And will you love me forever?

What's it gonna be, boy? Come on
I can wait all night
What's it gonna be, boy? Yes or no
What's it gonna be, boy? Yes or no

Let me sleep on it, baby, baby, let me sleep on it
Well, let me sleep on it, I'll give you an answer in
the morning

I gotta know right now, do you love me?
Will you love me forever? Do you need me?
Will you never leave me?

Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
Will you take me away and will you make me your
wife?
I gotta know right now before we go any further
Do you love me? Will you love me forever?

Let me sleep on it
Will you love me forever?
Let me sleep on it
Will you love me forever?

I couldn't take it any longer
Lord, I was crazed
And when the feeling came upon me like a tidal wave
I started swearing to my God and on my mother's
grave
That I would love you to the end of time
I swore that I would love you to the end of time

So now I'm praying for the end of time
To hurry up and arrive
'Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you
I don't think that I can really survive

I'll never break my promise or forget my vow
But God only knows what I can do right now
I'm praying for the end of time, It's all that I can
do
Praying for the end of time so I can end my time
with you

It was long ago and it was far away
And it was so much better that it is today
When it was long ago and it was far away
And it was so much better that it is today

It was long ago and it was far away
And it was so much better that it is today
When it was long ago and it was far away
And it was so much better that it is today

It was long ago and it was far away
And it was so much better that it is today
When it was long ago and it was far away
And it was so much better that it is today

It was long ago and it was far away
