Band – Night Parade lyrics

You got lost in the crowd
The waves of people in Chinatown
Can't get behind this mystery
Do you believe everything you see

Just a shadow in the streetlight
Just a shadow on the wall
A silhouette, face in the darkness
I've been waiting for the call

We'll go marching in the night parade
We'll be marching in the night parade

I combed the streets like cloak and dagger
I put the word out on the waterfront
We were living hard, living fast
Outrunning ghosts from the past

Just a shadow in the moonlight
Just a shadow on the wall
A silhouette, the kiss of death
Did somebody take the fall


Mary, Mary, Mary I'm knocking on your door
Mary, Mary sanctuary can't see you no more
From out of the past a stranger came
And carried you away
I stood on the corner, the scene of the crime
And I could here her say


We're living in a street opera
Are we just living in a street opera


Walking the night beat
The rhythm of the street
Moving to the heartbeat of the city
