When I'm walkin' under stars
I covet all the waning hours
All the lonely houses stand like monuments
To thieves

When I'm walkin' in the dark
I'm free to covet all I want
You've made it all so very dangerous
I can't stay away

When I'm walkin' under trees
I'm free to covet all I please
New moons in the alley
And it's madness calls to me

Tonight, tonight, tonight...

If I meet you in the night
You're free to covet all you like
Don't you try and stop me
I cling tightly...to this life
