No One Can Love You Better Than Me - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


Lyrics

The oedipus complex

Lead vocals: kiki dee, marti webb, gary howard, eric woolfson


I am the universal mother
The heart of the family
When you are born in your innocent world
You will depend on me
Mine are the arms to rock you
When you're scared of the dark of the night
But soft though the lips of a girl might be
No one can love you better than me

But somewhere in the dark there is a wall of silence
That hides the love away, that hides the love away

I am the universal father
The head of the family
When you imagine a man of the world
He will be just like me
I am the lord and master
My word is the royal decree
I stand by the side of the woman i love
No one can love her better than me

I am the universal son
The pride of the family
I shine like the stars in my mother's eyes
She can believe in me
I am the young pretender
With fire to bring to the fight
But strong as anothers arms may be
No one can love her better than me

But somewhere in the dark there is a wall of silence
And sometimes in the night there is a wall of silence
Don't take the love away, don't take the love away
No one can love you better than me
No one can love you better than me

No one can love you
No one can love you better than me
