Def Leppard - Hysteria



"Hysteria" is a song by English glam metal band Def Leppard. It is the tenth track on their 1987 album of the same name and was released as the album's third single in November 1987. On VH1 Storytellers: Def Leppard, lead singer Joe Elliott revealed that the song title came from drummer Rick Allen. The song peaked at number ten on the Billboard Hot 100.


The massive selling Hysteria turned Def Leppard into global superstars, but recording the album took the band to hell and back more than once.


Lyrics


Out of touch, out of reach yeah

You could try to get closer to me

I'm in luck, I'm in deep, yeah

Hypnotized, I'm shakin' to my knees


I gotta know tonight

If you're alone tonight

Can't stop this feeling

Can't stop this fire


Oh, I get hysterical, hysteria

Oh can you feel it, do you believe it?

It's such a magical mysteria

When you get that feelin', better start believin'

'Cos it's a miracle, oh say you will, ooh babe

Hysteria when you're near

Out of me, into you yeah

You could hide it's just a one way street

Oh, I believe I'm in you, yeah

Open wide, that's right, dream me off my feet

Oh, believe in me


I gotta know tonight

If you're alone tonight

Can't stop this feeling

Can't stop this fire


Oh, I get hysterical, hysteria

Oh can you feel it, do you believe it?

It's such a magical mysteria

When you get that feelin', better start believin'

'Cos it's a miracle, oh say you will


Ooh babe

Hysteria when you're near

Come on
