Mystery Tonight (Rawlins Cross)

There's a mystery in the air tonight,
A whispered rumour in the soft porch light,
A broken confidence, a hint on the breeze,
A shadow in the mirror that no one sees.

Friday night, I'm well nigh in the mood,
I'm gonna dress to the nines, sport the attitude;
Walk the walk with a heart full of hunger,
Spotting the spot that casts the spell I'm under.

A nagging feeling in the back of the brain,
A smokin' candle, a fire in the rain,
Unearthly quiet, un fait accompli,
And trepidation trickles down the street.

Rock till the breakin' of the mornin' light,
For fun and profit, it's your heart's delight;
'Round and 'round, a fool and his money,
Painting the town, so come on, honey.

In the still night fallin',
Sultry breezes callin';
With the full moon shinin' bright,
Lose ourselves in the mystery tonight.

There's a mystery in the air tonight,
A certain somethin' that's not quite right;
A picture frame that's ajar by the door,
A sinkin' feeling I've been here before.

Freedom on the wind like a siren song,
Future flown past, it's dead and gone;
We'll find the end that's in the journey,
And the solution to the mystery.

In the still night fallin',
Sultry breezes callin';
With the full moon shinin' bright,
Lose ourselves in the mystery tonight.

The still night fallin',
Sultry breezes callin';
With the full moon shinin' bright,
Lose ourselves in the mystery tonight.
