Spanish Nights

In the City of the Angels tonight
down off one of those freeways
The breeze ain't movin' nothin'
But the blue hotel light
And the ladies on the corner
swear they could make it right...

And he sits with his head in his hands
She sits listening to the radio
And things they ain't worked out
exactly as planned
But then, Southern California
ain't no place to make a stand...

And she holds on she holds on
to St. Christopher

And she shines on and he heads
for the light

And they can't take away the memories
(take away the memories)
of Spanish nights...

She had been there forever
and he had been 'somewhere along the way'
And for passionate people
these are desperate times
Desperate measures call for
passionate crimes...

So they stole all the love they could handle
living underneath the hotel law
And you don't take prisoners
when you live on the run
And this town it can finish
anything you've begun...

And she holds on she holds on
to St. Christopher

And she shines on and he heads
for the light

And they can't take away the memories
(take away the memories)
of Spanish nights...

When you run with the dreamers
(when you run with the dreamers)
The going can get so rough
(get so rough)
But sooner or later you find out
that dreams just ain't enough...
just ain't enough

And they swore that each time was the last one
You know, two hearts can only take so much...
And you can't live in love songs
but, oh, how they tried
Alone in the darkness
with the whispers and cries...

But then...

In the City of the Angels tonight...
down off one of those freeways
the breeze ain't movin' nothin'
but the blue hotel light...

And she holds on she holds on
to St. Christopher

And she shines on and he heads
for the light

And they can't take away the memories
(take away the memories)
of Spanish nights...

And she holds on she holds on
to St. Christopher

And she shines on and he heads
for the light

And they can't take away the memories
(take away the memories)
of Spanish nights...
Spanish nights...

Listen to her heartbeat...
