Heavens Gate - Lyrics by Ufo


Lyrics

As midnight draws its steely shades
And the boystown girls go on parade
My tattoo she's a kiss away
In the creole town it's another day
Tears of rage and tears of pain
We're two lovers called 'em different ways
No redemption no remorse
But this love drives a deadly course

* i can't wait for you
Heaven's gate won't wait
I can't wait for you
'cause heaven's gate won't wait

So hold me close, don't let go
With one last kiss, we'll never know
What should have, could have, might have been
We're just chasin' one more dream
I can hear the mardi gras
From my hotel window it seems to far
As daylight creeps through the shades
I can see the price we paid

* repeat

[instrumental]

* repeat twice
