Unchain the Night
Dokken Lyrics


I've been lost in the middle
Always trying to find the wishin' well
Runnin' 'round in circles
I was crossing the line

I want to touch you
Don't want to see you
You've got a knife in your heart
Don't say that you did it for me

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
'Cause there's always another turn

You know right where you want it
But you never gave it in return
Runnin' me in circles
Always crossing the line

Don't want to touch you
Leave you confused
You took the easy way out
When you looked through the eyes of a fool

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
'Cause there's always another turn

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
'Cause there's always another turn

Never, never, never, never

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
I'm never gonna set you free

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
'Cause there's always another turn

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
I'm never gonna set you free

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
'Cause I'm never gonna set you free

Unchain the Night

Dokken

I've been lost in the middle
Always trying to find the wishing well
Running around in circles
Never crossing the line

Don't want to touch you
Don't want to see
You've got a knife in your heart
Don't say that you did it for me

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
'Cause there's always another turn

You know right where you want it
But you never gave it in return
Running me in circles
Always crossing the line

Don't want to touch you
Leave you confused
You took the easy way out
When you looked through the eyes of a fool

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is strong
Never unchain the night
'Cause there's always another turn

Never, never
Never, never

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
I'm never gonna set you free
Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
'Cause there's always another turn
Never unchain the night



Fernando de Lima

I've been lost in the middle
Always trying to find the wishing well
Running around in circles
Never crossing the line

Don't want to touch you
Don't want to see
You've got a knife in your heart
Don't say that you did it for me

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
Cause there's always another turn

You know right where you want it
But you never gave it in return
Running me in circles
Always crossing the line

Don't want to touch you
Leave you confused
You took the easy way out
When you looked through the eyes of a fool

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is strong
Never unchain the night
Cause there's always another turn

Never, never
Never, never

Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
I'm never gonna set you free
Never unchain the night
Don't tell me that the love is gone
Never unchain the night
Cause there's always another turn
Never unchain the night

@Broken Teeth Album Reviews I'm in the same boat man, I turn 29 this year but I live for 80's metal. Out of the ~2000 records in my collection, I think maybe about 100 of them were released after I was born. All the bands I've even played in have either been 80's thrash or hair metal bands.

Broken Teeth Album Reviews

I'm trying 29 and always loved 80s metal as far back as I can truly remember fucking love Dokken they influenced me lyrically also Don can make his lyrics sound poetic

Endo 1988

Jasper Dokken

In my personal, humble, and most brutally honest opinion, this very song is the epitomy of awesome from a truly legendary band in an era where most rock/metal songs and albums were made by real musicians and vocalists, with real instruments and live in a studio. Don't get me wrong, though there are still some of the younger generations out there who still hold true to these standards, many either sell out, or fall by the wayside. Although technology has given us great advancements and innovations over the decades, it has taken away somethings from modern music at the same time. When I listen to this song via You Tube, it fills me with reenvigorating hope that musicians, vocalists, groups, bands, and artists alike will one day return to this ages old practice while adding some of the modern touches to their music, and create a harmonious blending of the old and the new, a timeless standard of music that everyone can benefit from and enjoy.

This was a potential greatest hit for this band

Yonatan HS

Younger what?? There is nothing nothing these days...generation snowflake wouldnt produce this..
Or wouldbe a cheap copy

Christopher Jones

@LightfingersKlepto Panther references many bands. Various minds in the music scene regard Dokken as somewhat out of place (timing) and ahead of that time compared to the glam scene. They were actually cutting edge just following the manager-directed trends which were making money then.

You would be missing things in a big way to find any musical comparison between these outfits. There's little redeeming about the former in relation to the latter. (Yes, elsewhere, Fight was very underrated without question. Different than Dokken, though.)
