LYRICS

FADE TO BLACK 

In this life we have too few years 

And we cry too many tears 

Now my angel have no fear 

There’s nothing left for me here 

Now I know I’m fading fast 

And these words may be my last 

Let me say I love you one last time 

The nurse has come to close the blinds 

I know how much you prayed 

Now I can say I’m not afraid 

All my bags have been packed 

Now its time to fade to black 

In this life we have too few years 

And we cry too many tears 

Now my angel have no fear 

There’s nothing left for me here 

I know how much you prayed 

Now I can say I’m not afraid 

All my bags have been packed 

Now its time to fade to black

CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT 

We are wild 

Children of the night 

Gonna run 

Til the morning light 

Won't tell you what we've done 

But you know we had a whole lot of fun 

We are wild 

Children of the night 

Got to set our spirits free 

That is our destiny 

Come along with me 

Children of the night 

Run so fast they turn back time 

Children of the night 

Everyone of them is a friend of mine

PARIS

Ah Paris you wicked old dame 

You display your delights 

With no sense of shame 

I want to kiss you 

And lie in your bed 

I know I'll miss you 

All those toasts left unsaid 

Ah Paris you’re a jaded old tart 

You tease and titillate 

And play with my heart 

I want to hold you 

And pretend you’re mine 

Like many men before me 

Down the boulevards of time 

Ah Paris 

I stumble down your streets 

Ah Paris

Your manner is so indiscreet

 

 

CAGED IN FUR 

Surrounded by sycophants 

That cater to all my needs and all my wants 

I look back on my struggles 

And how I had to hustle 

Now that I found success 

I can't leave my velvet nest 

I am no longer free 

To go where I want out on the streets 

Too many people recognize me 

Too many paparazzi 

Ain't got no privacy 

My manager made off with 

My merchandise money 

My old friends are all envious 

And now they all shun me 

Now I don’t ever have any time 

Wherever I go it’s the scene of a crime 

I’m always on the road 

I’m always on a plane 

It’s all getting old 

It's driving me insane 

Too many pills 

Too many whiskys 

It's all making me ill 

This lifestyle's too risky

DON’T CRY FOR ME 

Please don’t cry for me 

But I will die for you 

Go live your life in peace 

This is something that I have to do 

I don’t know retreat 

There is no other road 

I only see defeat 

When we do not pay what’s owed 

This world has no mercy 

This Life has many flaws 

I was searching for a purpose 

Now I’m fighting for a cause 

Please don’t cry for me 

This is where I belong 

In the end please send someone for me 

To carry my body home 

I had a long and winding journey 

To make my way to the front 

Now the tables are turning 

Our counterstrike has begun 

Blood is on their hands 

But now it’s in my eyes 

I’ve come to make my stand 

There’s no better way to die 

Please don’t cry for me 

This is where I belong 

In the end please send someone for me 

To carry my body home

FEMME FATALE 

Nursing a negroni 

She said she had something to show me 

Maybe it was my Gumshoe intuition 

But something aroused my suspicion 

The night was rainy so I offered her my trenchcoat 

Hopped into a cab and lit up a smoke 

Her lips were red and her eyes were blue 

I knew she was going to play me for a fool 

I fell hard for a femme fatale 

I carry the knife wound with me now 

I fell hard for a femme fatale 

Now she’s on the lam off the grid underground 

Nursing a negroni 

With a bartender named two-tone tony 

He could see I was bleeding 

But knew a doctor I wasn't needing 

I just needed something to drink 

to clear my mind and help me think 

Far away from her poison perfume 

And those bedroom eyes that made me swoon 

I fell hard for a femme fatale  

I carry the knife wound with me now  

I fell hard for a femme fatale  

Now she’s on the lam off the grid underground 

GONNA RAIN ALL DAY 

Gonna rain all day 

That’s what the weathermen say 

They may have been wrong before 

But this time it’s gonna pour 

Gonna rain all day 

The sky is a deep dark gray 

If I can dry out tomorrow 

I’ll be on my way 

Yesterday 

There wasn’t a cloud in the sky 

Such a sunny day 

Now its hard to stay dry 

Gonna rain all day 

You just can’t change the weather 

Guess I wore out my stay 

Thought I would be here forever 

Yesterday 

There wasn’t a cloud in the sky 

Such a sunny day 

Now it’s hard to stay dry

I DON’T NEED LOVE 

I don’t need love 

I don’t know why that sounds outrageous 

I don’t need love 

Love’s a disease that’s too contagious 

I don’t need love 

Don’t need somebody to try to tame me 

I don’t need love 

Don’t care how much they try to shame me 

Check out romeo and Juliet 

An unhappy story no one can forget 

Right from the start the stage was set 

The duo was doomed from the moment that they met 

Blinded by love they didn’t see the threat 

A double suicide love was there to abet 

They rolled the dice 

And they paid the price 

Was that so wise 

To make that sacrifice 

Don’t wanna end like bonnie and clyde 

With a bloody end to a bloody ride 

Bonnie may have been a blushing bride 

she had a lot of guts that cant be denied 

But a woman hanging on your side 

Makes it harder to run and harder to hide 

They rolled the dice 

And they paid the price 

Was that so wise 

To make that sacrifice 

Look at Cleopatra and marc antony 

Two lovers sweating in the Egyptian heat 

Their love best expressed between the sheets 

A demise brought on by a deceit 

But love was the conqueror that led to defeat 

A gory little story I don’t plan to repeat 

I don’t need love 

Don’t wanna end up some tragic hero 

I don’t need love 

Love leaves you ending up with less than zero 

I don’t need love 

Theres always enough sugar for me to borrow 

I don’t need love 

But check back to see how I feel tomorrow

THE NIGHT 

I am a man of the world 

But I am noble at the core 

I am a man who knows his worth 

But I will always bargain for more 

Oh what a night 

Look at the lights 

Boulevard so full of life 

And I am so full of love 

Oh what a night 

She shines so bright 

always avoiding my eye 

How she holds herself above 

Oh how sweet it could be if she 

Would gaze into my eyes 

Oh how we could live in a dream 

Forever Mesmorized  

Oh what a night 

Look at the lights 

Boulevard so full of life 

And I am so full of love 

Oh what a night 

She shines so bright 

always avoiding my eye 

How she holds herself above 

Now the night is done and I must run 

Back into the darkness of day 

But I’m still alive and tonight I will try 

Once again to catch her eye
