I waited for you in
The usual place. At the time we'd arranged. And I thought I saw you go by
In the car. But the number plates had been changed. Then my watch stopped
Ticking.
And the snow started sticking. And the world looked different and strange.
It was the longest night that's ever been.
It was the longest night that's ever been.
It was the longest night that's ever been.
Waiting for Madame Guillotine.
All my friends said I must be crazy. But I had to talk to someone. So I
Found me a church and I prayed for a sign, to tell me what had to be done.
And I swear as I gazed at the statute of Jesus. The cross turned into a
Gun.
It was the longest night that's ever been.
It was the longest night that's ever been.
It was the longest night that's ever been.
Waiting for Madame Guillotine.
So I waited for a little bit longer. And I was feeling really calm. And
Then she appeared at the end of the street. With another man on her arm. So
I fired two shots to stop her laughing.
And her body fell to the floor. She was dead when the first shot hit her.
The second was just to m It was the longest night that's ever been.

It was the longest night that's ever been.
It was the longest night that's ever been.
Waiting for Madame sure.
Never had much use for religion. But now we're alone in my cell. I'm
Begging you priest. When you're praying for souls. Please pray for my soul
As well. You see I'd like to think I was going to heaven. But I can hear
Them singing in hell.
It was the longest night that's ever been.
It was the longest night that's ever been.
It was the longest night that's ever been.
Waiting for Madame Guillotine.
It was the longest night that's ever been.
It was the longest night that's ever been.
It was the longest night that's ever been.
Waiting for Madame Guillotine.
