Steppin' Out
Joe Jackson Lyrics

The mist across the window hides the lines
But nothing hides the color of the lights that shine
Electricity so fine
Look and dry your eyes

So tired of all the darkness in our lives
With no more angry words to say
Can come alive
Get into a car and drive
To the other side

Me babe, steppin out
Into the night
Into the light
You babe, steppin out
Into the night
Into the light

Are young but getting old before our time
We'll leave the T.V. and the radio behind
Don't you wonder what we'll find
Steppin' out tonight

Can dress in pink and blue just like a child
And in a yellow taxi turn to me and smile
We'll be there in just a while
If you follow me

Me babe, steppin' out
Into the night
Into the light
You babe, steppin' out
Into the night
Into the light

And anything from Jan Hammer.

Early 80's and this playing on MTV a couple times an hour it seemed. Good times.


I listened to the album many times but never got to see a 'Video" - locked away in boarding school - "telly" was banned and MTV was on another planet. Thanks for throwing this up ^^^ there

Being a kid in the eighties was the highlight of my entire existence. This song brings back some really strong memories. Long live the eighties!!

Absolutely! I’ve been on this 80s kick lately! Maybe we miss those simpler times! 👌🏽💯


@Shelly M Same...look at us now at 48 and wondering where and what happened to all that time?

Gijs Leffelaar
