Dead or Alive (band) Wiki
Advertisement

"Hit and Run Lover" is the first song on Fragile, the seventh studio album from the dance music band Dead or Alive (band). Like the 1990 album Fan the Flame (Part 1), it was released only in Japan, where the band were very popular. The song was a hit record for the group, peaking at #2 on the Japanese charts.

A remix of the song was included on Unbreakable: The Fragile Remixes (2001). The new version was performed live at the TokyoBigSite during an Avex rave concert in 2001, with two new members, Cliff Slapher and Mickey Dee, and without Jason Alburey.

Technically it is known as the band's last new song released as a single, because years later the 2003 remix and subsequent reissues of "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" would be released.

Hit and Run Lover (Burns/Coy/Barnecott)
You look like somebody

I used to know

A daydream believer

With a heart of gold

Don't try to ignorme me

'Cause everyone already knows

All about the scandalous things

We used to do

The time at the movies

In your daddy's room

They don't satisfy me

They seem to do something for you

So why am I surprised

You're a hit and run lover

Put the hammer to the wheel

Baby, run for cover

Gonna tell it to your friends

You're a two time mutha

Tell me why am I surprised

Why am I surprised

I'm that secret

You were keeping

I was looking

You were leaping

Take a look at my face

I'm not laughing yet

I got something for you

That you'll never forget

And I know, you know, they know

That old black magic is mine

You got no money,

Well maybe a dime

But time costs a fortune

And the hours are mine

But we're gonna make it

We've got what it takes

We're gonna make it

We got what it takes

Why am I surprised

You're a hit and run lover

Put the hammer to the wheel

Baby, run for cover

Gonna tell it to your friends

You're a two time lover

Tell me why am I surprised

You're a hit and run lover
