Billy Ocean - Red Light Spells Danger Lyrics

Red light
Spells danger
Can't hold out
Much longer

'Cos red light
Means warning
Can't hold out
I'm burning

No, no, no
(Red light)
You took my heart and turned me on
(Spells danger)
And now the danger sign is on
(Can't hold out)
Never thought the day would come
(Much longer)
When I would feel alone without you

('Cos red light)
An' now I'm like a child again
(Means warning)
Calling out his mama's name
(Can't hold out)
You got me on a ball and chain
(I'm burning)
Doing things that I don't wanna
(Baby baby)

I can't stop running to ya
Feel love coming through ya
Girl with you beside me
Hold on heaven guide me

(Red light)
'Til the red light
(Spells danger)
Oh-a-oh danger warning
(Can't hold out)
Can't hold out
Much longer
(Much longer)
No no babe

('Cos red light)
'Til the red light
(Means warning)
Oh-a-oh that's a danger warning
(Can't hold out)
Can't hold out
I'm burning
(I'm burning)

(Red light)
Red light
(Spells Danger)
I love you, baby
(Can't hold out)
Can't hold out
(Much longer)
Oh, baby baby

('Cos red light)
(Means warning)
Means a warning, yeah
(Can't hold out)
And I can't hold out
(I'm burning)
No no no no no

(Red light)
I had my fun, I played around
(Spells danger)
Without a love to tie me down
(Can't hold out)
I always used to kiss and run
(Much longer)
I never wanted love to catch me

('Cos red light)
I thought I had a heart of stone
(Means warning)
But now I'm in the danger zone
(Can't hold out)
I can feel the heat is on
(I'm burning)
Soon the flames are gonna catch me
(Baby baby)

I can't stop running to ya
Feel love coming to ya
Girl with you beside me
Hold on heaven guide me

(Red light)
Feel the red light
(Spells danger)
Oh-a-oh that's a danger warning
(Can't hold out)
And I can't hold out
(Much longer)
No no no

('Cos red light)
'Til the red light
(Means warning)
Oh-a-oh that's a danger warning
(Can't hold out)
Can't hold out
(I'm burning)
No no no no

(Red light)
Oh, it's a red light baby
(Spells danger)
Oh, you gotcha danger warning
(Can't hold out)
And I can't hold out
(Much longer)
No you got me help me baby

('Cos red light)
Oh, feel the red light
(Means warning)
Oh, it's a danger warning
(Can't hold out)
Oh, I can't hold out
(I'm burning)
No no no no no
