Ozzy Osbourne - Shot In The Dark



"Shot in the Dark" is a song recorded and performed most famously by heavy metal solo artist Ozzy Osbourne. It is the ninth and final track on his 1986 album The Ultimate Sin.


A top-ten hit on mainstream rock radio, the song also became his first single to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 68. The official music video for the song was directed by Andy Morahan.


"Shot in the Dark" was originally composed sometime around 1983 by members of Wildlife, a band featuring Steve Overland, Chris Overland, Simon Kirke of Bad Company, keyboardist Mark Booty, and future Ozzy Osbourne bassist Phil Soussan.




Lyrics


[Osbourne - Soussan]


Out on the streets I'm stalking the night

I can hear my heavy breathing

Paid for the kill, but it doesn't seem right

Something there I can't believe in

Voices are calling from inside my head

I can hear them, I can hear them

Vanishing memories of things that were said

They can't try to hurt me now


But a shot in the dark

One step away from you

Just a shot in the dark

Always creeping up on you

All right


Taught by the powers that preach over me

I can hear their empty reasons

I wouldn't listen, I learned how to fight

I opened up my mind to treason

But just like the wounded, and when it's too late

They'll remember, they'll surrender

Never a care for the people who hate

Underestimate me now


But a shot in the dark

One step away from you

Just a shot in the dark

Nothing that you can do

Just a shot in the dark

Always creeping up on you

All right


But just like the wounded, and when it's too late

They'll remember, they'll surrender

Never a care for the people who hate

Underestimate me now


But a shot in the dark

One step away from you

Just a shot in the dark

Nothing that you can do

Just a shot in the dark

Always creeping up on you

All right


Just a shot in the dark

Just a shot in the dark

Just a shot in the dark

Just a shot in the dark
