  G             G6  
I get up in the evening

And I ain't got nothing to say
                    G6  
I come home in the morning
G           G6               C
I go to bed feeling the same way

Even if we're just dancing in the dark

G  G6   G  G6


Verse 2:
-------

Messages keep getting clearer
Radio's on and I'm moving 'round my place
I check my look in the mirror
Wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face

Man, I ain't getting nowhere
I'm just livin' in a dump like this
There's something happening somewhere
Baby, I just know that there is


Chorus:
------

You can't start a fire
You can't start a fire without a spark
This gun's for hire
Even if we're just dancing in the dark

I'll shake this world off my shoulders
C                             D
Come on, baby, the laugh's on me


Verse 3:
-------

Stay on the streets of this town
And they'll be carving you up, all right
They say you gotta stay hungry
Hey baby, I'm just about starving tonight

I'm dying for some action
I'm sick of sitting around here,
           trying to write this book
I need a love reaction
Come on, baby, give me just one look


Chorus 2:
--------

D                 '

D                 '                C
Sitting around crying over a broken heart

Even if we're just dancing in the dark

Worrying about your little world falling apart

Even if we're just dancing in the dark 255
