Friday night my Swatch is heading toward 7 o'clock biggest problem on my mind is whether I should pop my collar or not In the other room Martha Quinn's slinging music videos I'm an '86 Latch-key kid with someplace to go My friend honks his horn I pull my knock-off Jordan's on One last check in the the mirror then I hit the lawn All the way there we're blasting Eddie Money Then we stop and do one of those fire drills 'cause we think we're so funny (CHORUS) And I'm thinking about all the cool things I'll say John Hughes could write and the way her Bonne Belle lipgloss will catch the light I want to talk to that girl with all my might Then maybe I'll dance tonight Everybody is there for everybody to see Julius Seizure and the Roman Candles up on stage singing "Take On Me" Then I see her across the floor and I'm here by the door I could run away then the lights change to match the ballad the band starts to play (CHORUS) (Bridge) I want to sparkle in your eyes I want to be as cool as Peter Venkman or Marty McFly And if I'm lucky, I could be your Ducky too But standing here in this light I don't know if I look right to you I'd love to tell you this song has a movie end truth is I chickened out and spent the night hanging out with my friends that night I told myself I'd get another chance There'd always be another Friday and some other dance

Huddled here waiting for the lion We believe the sun still shines sometimes you have to go to the dark places to find light Sam saw a star through the topsoil where he dug to see what he could see we claw and carve our future out of rock and earth because we believe We believe in life we believe in spinning sugar to survive we believe that love will bring down the light When monsters strut in the sun on every corner, on every street the good go to ground and fill the holes behind them and wait beneath their feet Time will be our salvation as dark must fall, light must rise and we will break the crust and feel the sweet, honey air and have to shield our eyes Because We believe in life we believe in spinning sugar to survive we believe that love will bring down the light We believe in deliverance that a hand will reach down into the dark we believe that love will make light (INSTR BRIDGE) When the weather threatens and uncertainty tears across the sky that's when you'll know how far down you can go and still fight And I believe in light I believe in spinning sugar to survive I believe in love even when it's hard
