Marc Almond – Brilliant Creatures lyrics

I lost you in the great big city
You gave me your number
But fate, she closed her eyes
And the wind blew it away
I know you're sometimes at a bar
But I can't recall the name
You could have called
Im sure you have a story
And you're not to blame

In time the tears will come
And the memory of you will hurt inside
I know life must go on
And I wont see you again

And life goes...
Oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh
Ill cry tomorrow baby
Oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh
But tonight Im gonna dance

Brilliant creatures
We were brilliant creatures

Bitterness is a pure feeling
Makes me feel that lifes worth living
And when the pain becomes too much
Ill turn and walk away

Just standing in the rain
Ill take the romance of the night
Im not gonna waste my time
Ive got a life to live

And life goes...
Oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh
Ill cry tomorrow baby
Oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh
But tonight Im gonna dance

Am I still in your heart
Or do I she'd my tears for nothing
Do you think of me at all
Tell me that it all means something
I could wait for you to call
But when tomorrow never seems to come
Ill close my heart to you
Promises, Ive heard them all before

Outside the snow is falling
In my heart a voice is calling
Time to end the story
Turn and walk away
Remember that we were brilliant creatures
Flaming creatures
For a fleeting moment in a dream
And life goes on
