Have you ever known the pain of perfection? Could you ever know this pain, such perfection? Intensity, beauty and harmony, and perfection  Voices of angels are telling me I'm unworthy  Tears in the darkness and the long drive home  Perfect solitude, but the stars are dimmer far from you Voices of angels are telling me I'm unworthy Pathos and exaltation devour me

There was some other time Some crazy night of mine I was watching you, standing so close you could have reached out to me But the way you caressed her I knew for sure She was the most beautiful girl in the world to you The most beautiful girl  The way she was singing so I'd say you're a guy who was in the know Been together a million times before But the way she was singing, you'd never have guessed she'd been touched before She was the most beautiful girl in the world to you The most beautiful girl  Somebody told me you shy away Hiding away from the gaze of a thousand eyes But when you're together you fly away And the night is perfection Stars in a moonlit sky spelling out goodnight Telling me it's the end of the night Will I catch sight of you under the streetlight Under the streetlight But that was some other time Some crazy night of mine I was watching you, standing so close you could have reached out to me But the way you caressed her I knew for sure She was the most beautiful girl in the world to you The most beautiful girl Beautiful girl

Jealousy envelops me I hear you, I stumble  Finality, and a certain kind of frailty, your death resembles I can never know what you share with your companions without me And while that river flows It quietly tortures all the living souls  Who want you, and need you, and beg you for more Still I cry I will never know you How could you die when you said it's never over? So must I wait? Will eternity heal you? How long must I wait till I can see you? It's never too late Bury me in your grace, though I am undeserving Carry me to your kinetic paradise of yearning Like lovers in the dark your every touch ignites me But I am never satisfied, you leave before it's over I want you, I need you, I beg you for more Still I cry You're my four leafed clover How could you die when you said it's never over? So must I wait? Will eternity heal you? How long must I wait till I can see you? It's never too late Never too late

A woman like me Trying to find shelter  And get out of the rain as it falls harder and harder Her tired eyes frantically seeking any way out - just for a while Trouble is, she hasn't been sleeping and the kids are screaming They won't let her hide A woman like me A woman like me Digging in deeper And a lonely retreat will only make it harder and harder The guilt kicking in The clock is ticking for the face in the mirror - will they forgive her? Trouble is, she hasn't been sleeping and her head is pounding They won't let her hide A woman like me Then a magic moment when you wake and see the sun It will be a better day and you can fight until they're gone Dark clouds round the corner, you're overcast again Big ideas that you are different But you're just a woman like me A woman like me A woman like me A woman like me Just a woman like me

Body, I want your body Don't need no respect tonight Just do the things you do to me all night Early evening sunlight caresses every fold Revealing all the signs of a night yet to unfold Feel your eyes burning into me When the heat is so intense I know exactly what I need Body, I want your body Don't need no respect tonight Just do the things you do to me all night Watching every shadow that falls against your skin The gentle breath of air as the night is setting in Feel your eyes burning into me When the heat is so intense I know exactly what I need Body, I want your body Don't need no respect tonight Just do the things you do to me all night

Do you know me Can you feel the way your every haunting moment sets me free? I can do this Step into another's shoes and be your right hand, endlessly Conscience tells me I should forget this No way that I can be there Vengeance has me, I hear its voices Making me scream I can't stand this Living, breathing, every waking moment you are in my soul I can hear this message in my head It's telling me to find you endlessly Conscience tells me I should forget this No way that I can be there Vengeance has me, I hear its voices Making me scream

Had a message from my friend today Told me he had to go away Could he feel my pain? It's much too soon to leave Could he see my tears as they fell upon my sleeve? A finer friend you could never hope to have Haven't known him long, but I'm glad that I have Will always remember the words that he shared: Always be yourself Doesn't matter about anybody else Just shine your light out and your honesty will shine through And they will find you So I guess that this must be the end But I hope that, some day, we can meet again Maybe you'll watch over and call in now and then Just 'cause you're leaving don't mean I won't need my friend Thank you for being my friend You know it's down to you I found myself in the end You are my shining light Would follow you in the darkest night, my friend
