The sea is whippin' the sky
The sky is whippin' the sea
You can hide away forever from the storm
But you'll never hide away from me

The icy cold will cut us like a knife in the dark
And we may lose everything in the wind
But the Northern Lights are burnin' and they're giving off sparks
I want to wrap myself around you like a winter skin

You know, I'm onto your scent
We're near the end of the chase
Take a look out your window, I'll be there in the night
Oh, your love is so close that I can almost taste it

The cold will cut us like a knife in the dark
And we may lose everything in the wind
But the Northern Lights are burning and they're giving off sparks
I want to wrap myself around you like a winter skin

You've been livin' your life like a girl in a cage
And you whisper when I want you to shout
And I never know why you wanna go on sleepin'
When there's nothing left to dream about
But you better remember

If it's somethin' I want then it's somethin' I need
I wasn't built for comfort, I was built for speed
If it's somethin' I want then it's somethin' I need
I wasn't built for comfort, I was built for speed

And I know that I'm gonna be like this forever
I'm never gonna be what I should
And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while
And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while
But I know that I'll be bad for good

Your eyes are darker than sin
And I've been watchin' them glow
Take a chance on a promise and a roll of the dice
Put your foot on the gas, let it go, let it go, let it go

You've been livin' your life like a girl in a cage
And you whisper when I want you to shout
And I never know why you wanna go on sleepin'
When there's nothing left to dream about
But you better remember

If it's somethin' I want then it's somethin' I need
I wasn't built for comfort, I was built for speed
If it's somethin' I want then it's somethin' I need
I wasn't built for comfort, I was built for speed

And I know that I'm gonna be like this forever
I'm never gonna be what I should
And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while
And you think that I'll be bad for just a little while
But I know that I'll be bad for good

I know that I'll be bad for good
I know that I'll be bad for good
I know that I'll be bad for good

Bad for good
Bad for good
Bad for good

For the good of some thrills on a long frigid night
For the good of the fire in your soul
For the good of the kiss let me hold you so tight
For the good of getting out of control

For the good of the action and a race in the dark
For the good of those chills up your spine
For the good of the rock and the roll in your heart
For the good of what's yours and what's mine

For the good of believing in a life after birth
For the good of your body so bright
For the good of the search for some heaven on earth
For the good of one hell of a night
For the good of one hell of a night

For the good of the action and a race in the dark
For the good of the fire in your soul
For the good of the hunger that ease in your heart
For the good of getting out of control

For the good of believin' in a life after birth
For the good of your body so bright
For the good of the search for some heaven on earth
For the good of one hell of a night
For the good of one hell of a night

The sea is whippin' the sky
The sky is whippin' the sea
You can hide away forever from the storm
But you'll never hide away from me

The icy cold will cut us like a knife in the dark
And we may lose everything in the wind
But the Northern Lights are burnin' and they're givin' off sparks
I want to wrap myself around you like a winter skin

I know that you can be bad
At least a little while
But if you give me a chance, give me one little chance
And give me all the love that you should

Then instead of bein' bad for just a little while
Then instead of bein' bad for just a little while
Then instead of bein' bad for just a little while

I'm gonna make you bad for good
I'm gonna make you bad for good
I'm gonna make you bad for good

I know that you'll be bad for good
You'll be bad for good
