Dirty Chai – Red Light Tango lyrics

Oh, there walked a woman wrapped in crimson lace
Lips kissed that burned but never showed the face
I saw her shadow in a red window glow

Silhouette of honeyed skin drew men like flies
Still I could not avert her piercing eyes
Madam arachnid drew me near
You could hear
She was singing

La da da de da
La da da die
Come lay your green down by my red light
La da da de da
La da da die
Come through my window love me tonight
Love she’s selling
Love I’m buying
Can’t escape her song in my mind
Love I’m buying
Love she’s selling
She’s not real but no one is telling

Through the velvet curtain into neon glare
She smeared her makeup across my sinful stare
And pressed my body to her window
And oh, saw my reflection in that purple haze
Lost all affection to the cold embrace
Forced me down and now
Hear me singing

La da da de da
La da da die
Come lay your green down by my red light
La da da de da
La da da die
Come through my window love me tonight
Love she’s selling
Love I’m buying
Can’t escape her song in my mind
Love I’m buying
Love she’s selling
She’s not real but no one is telling

La da de da da die
She sang
La da de da da die
We say
La da de da da die
Her love
La da de is a lie

Lie!

La da da de da
La da da die
Come lay your green down by my red light
La da da de da
La da da die
Come through my window love me tonight
La da da de da
La da da die
Come lay your green down by my red light
La da da de da
La da da die
Come through my window love me tonight
Love she’s selling
Love I’m buying
Can’t escape her song in my mind
She’s not real but no one is telling

No one
La da dee da da die
Die
