Electric Lady


Love Is A Brilliant Disaster


I am a creature of mystery
No one knows who I really am
Ten years from now
Or even twenty years from now
I may be a ghost in the wind
I shall dance myself to death
With no conscience left
Just my little ears
Listening outside the door
For I am the drum
With the electric beat
You can't tell me what to do
I follow my own rules
These tears that fill the earth's void
Let them be tears
For they all mean something
I shall laugh until I can't cry anymore
Oh my heart's poor soul
Forgive me, forgive me please
These eyes are too gentle to see the light
But I can feel it pouring in
Deep in my skin
Like solid rain.
