Kiss - Thrills In The Night



"Thrills in the night" is about a woman who lives a double life. During the day, she buttons up and puts in her eight hours at work, all the while thinking about the night, when she can satisfy her prurient desires. Her thrills come in the night, but she never lets on.

Paul Stanley of Kiss wrote this song with Jean Beauvoir, who was an early member of the band Plasmatics. He produced the Ramones albums Animal Boy (1986) and Brain Drain (1989).


Lyrics


Early morning, as she wakes from her sleep

9 to 5 is the day that she'll keep

Ties her hair up and her blouse buttoned tight

Gets her work done as she waits for the night

All the people, tell me what would they say

If they knew her, how she hides it away

Locked inside, there's the start of a flame

And the feeling that she never will tame

Ooh, as she's walking around like a mystery

Ooh, there's a woman that nobody sees living inside


Thrills in the night, far from the light

Passion taking over

Prices she pays, all through the days

No one really knows her


In the evening when she takes to the street

She goes hunting with a body in heat

And desires she's kept hidden inside make her tingle

And she knows why she lies

Ooh, as she's walking around like a mystery

Ooh, there's a woman that nobody sees living inside


Thrills in the night, far from the light

Passion taking over

Prices she pays, all through the days

No one really knows her

Thrills in the night, far from the light

Passion taking over

Prices she pays, all through the days

No one really knows her


Ooh, see the stranger that she's pushing away

As she dresses for the start of a day

And desires she's kept hidden inside make her tingle

Yeah, she knows why she lies


Thrills in the night, far from the light

Passion taking over

Prices she pays, all through the days

No one really knows her (yeah)

Thrills in the night (yeah), far from the light (ah)

Passion taking over

Prices she pays, all through the days

No one really knows her

Thrills in the night, far from the light

Passion taking over

Prices she pays, all through the days

No one really knows her
