Neon lights glare, as your eyes stare deep into the night. You so gently turn and leave me, melting in the night. Phantom faces, fake embraces floating where we kissed. No consoling, you're controlling every beat that I missed. Feeling your hunger, ringing your number, listening to your voice. I'm drunk and I'm calling, tripping and falling, wishing I had a choice. Someone's got a lover, and someone's got a gun. Someones having nightmares while others have fun. Someone's in the basement, sitting in the dark. Feeling some resentment, shooting at the park. Someone's needing money, trying hard to please. Failing to be funny on his hands and his knees. Someone's on the meattrack looking far too young. Running from a police trap, feeling highly strung. Need a friend here, there's no help near. I'm giving up the ghost. I never could see, why you left me when I needed you most. Dark eyes flashing, young girls laughing, fill my night with dreams. Every action has attraction, but never what it seems. Eating my heart out, acting a part out, sleeping outside your door. Wanting to touch you, wanting so much to lie by your side once more. Someone's on a knife edge spinning heads and tails. Living on a high ledge hanging by his nails. Someone's on the rooftop trying hard to jump. Really needs a long drop, so his heart can pump. Someone's taking tablets to see them through the night. Someone's got a suntan from an endless flight. Sleeping in the back room naked on the bed. Dreaming of a bridegroom, but morning comes instead. Someone's eyes are manic, searching for a home. Children dialing panic on the telephone. Shadows in the valley, rumours running rife. Someone's in the alley, adding up his life.
