Track Name: Great Cities
Under a cold electric sky
Over these city streets at night
Between the buildings as they move
Inside the aching hearts of lovers as they fall

It’s moving through me like a ghost
& Winding around in my head
Until time means nothing at all
Inside our aching hearts- lovers as we fall

There’s something about the way you move
You come in & shatter me
There’s something about the way we dance
Speaking in sympathy as cities rise & fall

* Something coming over me
When you slip into the room
Great cities rise & then they fall
& Time means nothing at all
When I’m with you

After the last strains fade away
To die with the very last rays
& I lay my body down to sleep
You still find a way to haunt my dreams
‘Cause there’s something about the way you move
You come in and shatter me
There’s something about the way we dance
Speaking in sympathy as cities rise and fall

* There’s something coming over me
When you slip into the room
Great cities rise & then they fall
& Time means nothing at all
There’s something coming over me
When you slip into a room
Great cities rise & then they fall
& Time means nothing at all
When I’m with you
When I’m with you
Great cities rise and then they fall
& Time means nothing at all
When I’m with you.
Track Name: Magic Without Tears
I'll pull the car down darkened lanes
& with a touch we can begin
This could be dangerous if anyone should happen by...

& the moonlight on your skin
Illuminates your beauty
And for a moment i can see everything except yr eyes

Let's stay up all night
Tangle til we're sore
Pleasures in the dark
Secrets in the morning
Words sound so strange
Words sound so strange
It all seems so unreal, my love

Dim the lights and draw the blinds
It's 3am, the party's over
And we have just begun
& soon we’ll curse the dawn
& though i may be fortune's fool
Tonight i've got you, baby
& i would kiss away each tear beneath your London eyes...

Let's stay up all night
Tangle til we're sore
Pleasures in the dark
Secrets in the morning
Words sound so strange
Words sound so strange
It all seems so unreal, my love
Let's stay up all night
Tangle til we're sore
Pleasures in the dark
Secrets in the morning
Words sound so strange
Words sound so strange
It's magic without tears, my love
Track Name: Love And Desire
Love & desire
Shouting into the void
New private contracts
In old hiding places
I look down at your hands
So smooth and familiar

Love and Desire...

Get down on the floor
Arousing suspicions, we
People around here
Plasticine beauty queens
We can be passengers
Move to the music
For I am you
& You are me

(hug me til you drug me, honey)
(kiss me til I’m in a coma)
(hug me, honey, snuggly bunny)
(Love’s as good as Soma)
(-A. Huxley)
Track Name: Drunk On You
Take off yr mask before you come back to me
The drums are sleazy & you shake it like you know what you want
Finish the bottle & I’ll bring you some more
Tomorrow’s ugly but tonight we don’t care at all

*Throw the furniture into the fire
Surprises as more people arrive
Tonight I’m feeling no more shame
& I’m drunk on you so baby c’mon

Take it off before you come back to me
I like it shaken & I like it when you know what you want
Kill the bottle & I’ll bring you some more
The neighbors hate us but tonight we don’t care at all

*Throw the furniture into the fire
Surprises as more people arrive
Tonight i’m feeling no more shame
& I’m drunk on you so baby c’mon
baby c’mon
baby c’mon
baby c’mon

*Throw the furniture into the fire
Surprises as more people arrive
Tonight i’m feeling no more pain
& I’m drunk on you so baby c’mon
Track Name: This Is Moonlife
So this is the place
The antenna is set
Pick up the phone
The receiver is dead
A silent film & a jazz cigarette
Images sneaking in & out of yr head
You dance for money, for Xs and Os
Under the moon, take a drive up the coast
So many pills you're sick in the head
Strangers creeping in & out of yr bed

"So this is it" the pharmacist said
Pick up the phone
The receiver is dead
Silent movies & jazz cigarettes
Images sneaking in & out of yr head
You dance for $$
For exes and ohs
Under the moon take a drive up the coast
So many pills. You're sick in the head
Strangers creeping in & out of yr bed

We kissed on the bed
So THIS is moonlife...
Track Name: Strangers In A Fire
May I suggest that lovers' etiquette be put aside for now
I think it best we slip out of here, lose ourselves & leave this ugly crowd
Tonight we are, tonight we are both stars
We're secret cabaret
We're Forget-Me-Nots to lovers in a dirty bed
Strangers in a fire
The big old silver moon, she fills & overflows
& I caught you by the throat 'cause I don't want you to go

Lovers’ chains weak hearts require
& Lovers all feign their undying desire
If your heart shies from those flames
You'll wake up all alone

May I suggest this lovers' etiquette be put aside for now
I think it best we slip out of here
To lose ourselves & leave this ugly crowd
Tonight we are, tonight we are both stars
We're secret cabaret
We're Forget-Me-Nots
Two lovers in a dirty bed
Enemies
& The big old silver moon she fills and overflows
& I caught you by the throat 'cause I don't want you to go

A Lover's chains weak hearts require
& Lovers all feign their undying desire
My heart shies from those flames
& I wake up all alone

Strangers In A Fire
We're Strangers In A Fire
Track Name: Diamond Seas
Fate, it brought you to me
Like a silver ship opened to receive
To draw me in & capture me
& Tell me of yr world- & I believe

We broke open the nighttime sky
Like two exploding stars
& Dreamed the dreams of lovers
As we shimmered in the dark
Until the dawn, on diamond seas
The sun came out
& We became another thing
Entirely.
