Venus - Lyrics by Ufo


Lyrics

Tell me now and i'll understand
Does venus hold you in the palm of her hand
Has her blackness touched your very heart
She'll smile sweetly as your world falls apart

*
And i just can't quit it babe
I just can't stand the pain
And i just can't quit it babe
I keep running back again

Little by little piece by piece
Your defenses have all slipped away
And real beauty's such an elusive thing
Somewhere down the line you'll have to pay

Repeat *

Oh no, its such a cold, cold feeling
Cuts your body to the bone
Oh no, its a strange, strange feeling
Loves been abandoned and i'm so alone

And everyday i see my flame growing dimmer
I've nothing left but this very life to save
And evry night i feel that i'm a winner
She's taking me down to the grave

And everyday i see my flame growing dimmer
I can't seem to chase the ghosts away
And every night i get too high, i'm a winner
I've nothing left but to pray

And every night she makes me feel like a winner
And every night she makes me think i'm a winner

Venus smiles and encircles me
And wraps me in a soft princely gown
Waves of darkness rise like the sea
In her addiction i will drown
