You told me stay away
You watched me walk away

You told me stay away away
I can hear the silence
I can hear the silence
You watched me walk away away
I can hear the silence
I can hear the silence

There's a reason for your sad eyes
There's a reason for your sad life
There's a reason you blame it all on me
Tell me why it's over
I'm lost again
Tell me why I'm laughing
Through the end
Tell me why it's over
Tell me true
Tell me why I'm crying
Over you

I waited hoping you would phone
I can hear the silence
I can hear the silence
And now I'm waiting all alone
I can hear the silence
I can hear the silence
I'm missing your sad eyes
I'm missing your sad smile
I'm missing the only love I've known

Pleasure Victim



We touched there was temperature
I'm not the same
Now I'm passing through your door
It's a pleasure game

you're the object of of my smile
I'm a life machine
Sentimental sound on sound
Time to switch the scene

you're the passion in me
You've broken down the system
You're the vision I see
A pleasure victim

simple figures fill my mind
Some I recognize
Bodies always look the same
Never see their eyes

to the touch there's always you
How can I erase your
Flaming candles, whispered words
Then your soft embrace

Feel the fire, feel my love inside you it's so right
There's the sound and the smell of love in my mind
I'm a toy, come and play with me, say the word now
Wrap your legs around mine and ride me tonight
I'm a man, I'm a goddess
I'm a man, well I'm a virgin
I'm a man, I'm a blue movie
I'm a man, I'm a *****
I'm a man, I'm a geisha
I'm a man, I'm a little girl
And we make love together

Slip and slide in your wet delight, feel the blood flow
Not too fast, don't be slow, my love's in your hands

I'm a man, I'm a boy
I'm a man, well I'm your mother
I'm a man, I'm a one night stand
I'm a man, am I bi
I'm a man, I'm a slave
I'm a man, I'm a little girl
And we make love together

Skin to skin, tongue to oooh! come on honey hold tight
Come inside, it's a passion play just for you
Let's get lost in that magic place all alone now
Drink your fill from my fountain of love, wet your lips

I'm a man, I'm a teaser
I'm a man, well I'm a virgin
I'm a man, I'm a one night stand
I'm a man, I'm a drug
I'm a man, well I'm your slave
I'm a man, I'm a dream divine
And we make love together

I'm a man, I'm a goddess
I'm a man, I'm a hooker
I'm a man, I'm a blue movie
I'm a man, I'm a slut
I'm a man, I'm babe
I'm a man, I'm a dream divine
And we make love together
And we'll make love forever

The painted faces on the street
Caricatures of long ago
Oh they were young and oh so sweet
Down beyond the boulevard
Knock on doors and empty halls
And still sometimes remember
The masquerade's forever

When you see the price they paid
I'm sure you'll come and join the masquerade

The reeling figures pass on by
Like ghosts in some forgotten play
Beneath the black and empty sky
Music plays and figures dance
With partners chosen by chance
And still some times remember
The masquerade's forever

They reached for tomorrow
But tomorrows, more of the same
So they reached for tomorrow
But tomorrow never came

When you hear the price they paid
I'm sure you'll come and join the masquerade

One by one and two by two
Past eight by tens in shattered frames
The players try to leave the room
Frantic puppets on a string
And all the while the music sings
And still sometimes remember
The masquerade's forever

The Metro
Berlin

I'm alone
Sitting with my empty glass
My four walls
Follow me through my past
I was on a Paris train
I emerged in London rain
And you were waiting there
Swimming through apologies

I remember searching for the perfect words
I was hoping you might change your mind
I remember a soldier sleeping next to me
Riding on the Metro

You wore white
Smiling as you took my hand
So removed
We spoke of wintertime in France
Minutes passed with shallow words
Years have passed and still the hurt
Oh, I can see you now
Smiling as I pulled away

I remember the letter wrinkled in my hand
"I'll love you always" filled my eyes
I remember a night we walked along the Seine
Riding on the Metro

I remember a feeling coming over me
The soldier turned, then looked away
I remember hating you for loving me
Riding on the Metro

I'm alone
Sitting with my broken glass
My four walls
Follow me through my past
I was on a Paris train
I emerged in London rain
And you were waiting there
Swimming through apologies (Sorry)

I remember searching for the perfect words
I was hoping you might change your mind
I remember a soldier sleeping next to me
Riding on the Metro

World Of Smiles
Berlin
Pleasure Victim

I'm thinking
Faces changing pictures come to mind
Try to change the subject

Sensation
Stare reveal me, still I want to know
Capture time in a photograph

Well I say "how do you do"
Shatters my mirrored view
If only your lie would disappear
Why don't you plaster your face
Then I just might believe
I'll crack you open, smash you down

I repeat
Your mad charade
This s. r. game you play's a freeze
Indifference
Greetings and smiles
You've got yours now I've got... mine

I've got to swallow your pride
Shallow men hear no rhyme
Furniture shifts as you walk by
Why don't you look in my eyes
What do you see in there
Plastic melts in a world of smiles

I'm laughing
Hurt me, hurt me, now the joke's on you
Satisfy your conscience

Stop talking, stop talking
Tear me open and leave me here to bleed
Cut me up, cut me down to size

Touch me, hold me, whirl away
Silence, sadness, white and grey

Torture, torture, twisted love
Kiss me, kick me, feel my blood

Forever, for now, my heart screams for you
Desperate memories, broken and true
Living for tears now, I'm dying for love

Merging and fading, forgiving again
Torture, torture, torture
