I can see the turning of the key
I've been deceived by the clown inside of me
I thought that he was right but he's afraid
But something's telling me I wear the ball and chain
My patron saint is fighting with the ghost
He's always off somewhere when I need him most
The Spanish moon is rising on the hill
But my heart is telling me I love you still
Everybody's wearin' a disguise
To hide what they've got left behind their eyes
But me I can't cover what I am
Wherever the children go I'll follow them
I march in the parade of liberty
But as long as I love you I'm not free
How long must I suffer such abuse?
Won't you let me see your smile before I turn you loose?
We sat in an empty theatre and we kissed
I asked you please to cross me off your list
My head tells me it's time to make a change
But my heart is telling me "I love you, but you're strange"
So one more time at midnight near the wall
Take off your heavy makeup and your shawl
Won't you come down from the throne from where you sit?
Let me feel your love one more time, before I abandon it.
I come back to the town from the flamin' moon
I see you in the street, I began to swoon
I love to see you dress before the mirror
Won't you let me in your room one time before I finally disappear?
