Walking down through the street Heading to the wind with pride To begin another busy day and meet the world Give me Challenges to take Puzzles to be solved Decisions to be made All done so perfectly with case Like a breeze The secret of success is mine When the days is over for the night (and the lights are darkened out with ink) And the moon's in charge of the sky (you can see the stars so sparkling) I'm gliding down the road up high (and it feels so much like flying) To recharge my energy and soul (for another day) Into the night Come with me to set yourself free Into the night Why not dance the night away Into the night Don't forget to believe in yourself Into the night Life is reaching for the stars
