Jim Carroll – Black Romance lyrics
Everything you ever wanted
Is passing with the driving rain
I died like a salamander
On my heart heavy like a chain
I been waiting here at the uptown theater
And it's all becoming clear that

Refrain:
It's too much head
And not much heart
But if you think about the end
It might never get started
It's a black romance
But it's one more chance
And if you fight out of spite
You know that just ain't right

Everyone you ever cared for
Is staying at the big hotel
I'm in the lobby with my hobby
And my rags and my bags
And the desk man rings a bell

I put a sign on my brain
That said, "do not disturb"
But the maids keep walking in
Then they make these beds
Inside my head
I wish they'd throw everything out instead

Repeat refrain

Little girl go out dancing
Little girl dance all night
Little girl dance to a love that's pure
[. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ? ]
I could hold your soul before a 1000 watt bulb
It wouldn't shine back at me

Repeat refrain
