„Let me show you how to drive me crazy,
Let me show you how to make me feel so good,
Let me show you how to take me to the edge of the stars and back again.“

—  Jim Steinman
Context: Let me show you how to drive me crazy, Let me show you how to make me feel so good, Let me show you how to take me to the edge of the stars and back again. You've gotta show me how to drive you crazy, You've gotta show me all the things you wanna happen to you, We've gotta tell each other everything, we always wanted someone to do. "Faster Than The Speed Of Night" from the Bonnie Tyler album Faster Than The Speed of Night (1983)

I'll be gone when the morning comes.“

„And I know that I'm damned if I never get out
And maybe I'm damned if I do
But with every other beat I got left in my heart
You know I'd rather be damned with you.“

—  Jim Steinman
Context: Nothing ever grows in this rotten old hole And everything is stunted and lost And nothing really rocks and nothing really rolls And nothing's ever worth the cost. And I know that I'm damned if I never get out And maybe I'm damned if I do But with every other beat I got left in my heart You know I'd rather be damned with you.

„But I don't know how to leave you
And I'll never let you fall
And I don't know how you do it
Making love out of nothing at all.“

—  Jim Steinman
Context: I know just how to fake it And I know just how to scheme I know just when to face the truth And then I know just when to dream. And I know just where to touch you And I know just what to prove I know when to pull you closer And I know when to let you loose. And I know the night is fading And I know the time's gonna fly And I'm never gonna tell you everything I gotta tell you But I know I've got to give it a try. And I know the roads to riches And I know the ways to fame I know all the rules and then I know how to break'em And then I always know the name of the game But I don't know how to leave you And I'll never let you fall And I don't know how you do it Making love out of nothing at all.

For the good of one hell of a night, for
the good of one hell of a night.“

Way down in the valley tonight.“

—  Jim Steinman

But now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart.“

„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.“

„And the last thing I see is my heart,
Still beating,
Breaking out of my body
And flying away
Like a bat out of Hell.“

—  Jim Steinman
Context: Then I'm dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun All torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell And the last thing I see is my heart, Still beating, Breaking out of my body And flying away Like a bat out of Hell.
