First off let me say you look so tired
Rest your head and shut your eyes
Empty ambition blankets the sky
I'm thinking 'bout another world tonight
So drop the gown the game's over
Just push your face into the fight
And it breaks my heart like dancing up all night
Ride so high we both start thinking
'Bout another world tonight
And it feels so wrong
Like nothing we've ever felt before
The stranger's candy takes you where
You ought to be
In broken alleys
In the back of every street
Close your eyes tonight, baby
You can have it, ooh baby
Gnaw me down to the bone
Soon you'll find I'm never
Gonna take you back home
Well there's so much you never told me
And there's not much I want to know
Cause your pretty face will do just fine
You'll be the star of my every last show
Let's go for a long ride
I'll show you places you won't ever want to leave The stranger's candy takes you where
You ought to be
In broken alleys
In the back of every street
Tonight we could bring it all down
We could bring it all down
They think this body's a dead note
Dancing to the beat but they'll never see
This corpse coming 'til it kills them
