The lights go down, the band prepares,
The scene is set, we're here to sell our wares
And we know that truth is an ever guiding light
So we sing our songs each and every night.
Do you know it, can you feel it, do you understand
What it's like to be living in a rock 'n' roll band
Up and down the land on a one night stand?
I could have sworn that I'd been in this place before.
Yes, I wrote my name on the dresing room wall;
It was another band, on a one night stand.
And it's all for the music;
Love is in the band
And freedom we command
On a one night stand.
