A Steinman Mash-Up

Compiled by Kelly Frith

Now I think I'm going to have to leave you
'Cause staying here has got to be hell
I've been whispering softly
And there is no way ever to apologize

All those years of endless boredom
All I wanted was a piece of the night
I never got an equal share
Let the darkness be your salvation
Curse the day, escape the light
Looks like it's gonna be a dark one tonight
You gave me nothing at all - now let me give it to you
You taught me how to be cruel - now let me try it on you
Stalking in the shadows by the light of the moon
Nothing's going to change the truth
My night is better...

It never had to get so dark
There's always the danger of losing control
Stalking in the shadows by the light of the moon
There were things I'd never do again
But then they always seemed right
Going anywhere has got to be heaven tonight
Is this the way it's supposed to be?
What part of my body hurts the most?
Come here now and let's see...

Maybe I'm crazy and I'm losing my senses
Maybe I'm possessed by a spirit or such
Maybe I'm desperate and I've got no defenses

The wind is sharp, it makes me shiver
But I don't see any angels in the city
The night's a promise but will it deliver?
You can take it back, steal life away
From death, your greatest theft...
And I hope you know that after all these demons
Have passed and gone
There's always one more left
And we surely can't turn off the night
Tonight I really got it bad

You must die to live forever
There'll be nothing left to fear
It's not enough to make the nightmares go away
No one's gonna stop me now
I gotta make my escape
There's desperation in the air
The future ain't what it used to be
You know I'd rather be damned with you

It was a hot summer night and the beach was burning
It was long ago and it was far away
There was fog crawling over the sand
Once upon a time was a backbeat
Once upon a time all the chords came to life
And it was so much better than it is today
Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you
I don't think that I can really survive...
