Give me one good reason
why you don’t come play with fire.
‘Cause when the earth starts movin’
you know that I’m no liar.
The city looks pretty tonight —
oh, hold on now, let’s go ’til the mornin’.
Get up on love —
and stand by me!
Stand by love —
stand by me!
Lyrics from “Stand By Love” by Simple Minds, 1991.
