lyrics

Well, there’s a hill where I sat in the dark
A girl in black in the front seat of my car
There was diamonds in her eyes and tattoos on her arms
I saw them in the moonlight
She said, “Boy, don’t ever tell a soul”
And I said, “Girl, nobody has to know, just as long as I can get you home a little before midnight”

And then she smiled as she took off her disguise
And I could see fire burnin’ deep inside her eyes
And when she whispered to me, “Why does wrong have to feel so right?” I kinda lost my mind

She had me singin’ “La da da la da la da la da la da…”

On the hill, sittin’ in the dark
The girl in black makin’ moves up in my car
There’s diamonds in her eyes and tattoos on her arms
I saw them in the streetlight
Oh, and the way she swayed to the song on the radio
Addicted to her ways, I won’t quit until I overdose
She jumped up on the seat and then she jumped on top of me and took me down

And when she smiled I could see through her disguise
Right into the fire burnin’ deep inside her eyes
And when she whispered to me, “Why does wrong have to feel so right?” I think I lost my mind
And then she took a breathe and leaned in for the kiss
And I could taste the fire that ignited on her lips
And when she whispered to me, “Now, babe, it’s never felt like this”
It’s never felt like this

She had me singin’ “La da da la da la da la da la da…”

She said, “Boy, don’t ever tell a soul”
And I said, “Girl, I swear he’ll never know just as long as I can get you home a little before midnight”

And then she gave me that look and she leaned in for the kiss
And I could taste the fire that ignited on her lips
And when she whispered to me, “Now, babe, it’s never felt like this”
It’s never felt like this
And then she screamed and I was drownin’ in the sin
And I was burned by the fire that ignited on her skin
And when she whispered to me, “Now, babe, it’s never felt like this”
It’s never felt like this

Now we’re singin’ “La da da la da la da la da la da…”
