You really do know how to strut that stuff (strut that stuff)
You really do know how to act tough (act tough)
Your body's just like a centerfold
A fantasy (a fantasy), anyone would want to hold

Chorus:
Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex as a weapon
You know you're already my obsession
Stop (stop) using sex as a weapon
Love is more than a one way reflection
Stop (stop) using sex as a weapon

With looks that kill and a mind that's twisted (twisted)
I don't know why I can't resist it (resist it)
I tell myself look the other way (other way)
When you want me to (when you want me to)
I, I always stay

(Chorus)

You play with desire like it was a toy (toy)
How much affection can you destroy?
You wrap my heart around your little finger
Sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, sex as a weapon

Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex

(Chorus)

Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex
Stop using sex as a weapon
Stop using sex (stop using sex, stop using sex)
Sex as a weapon, as a weapon

There comes a time, when you should see things clear
Free from my innocence, there is no circumstance too severe
Only the need for us, for us to believe again
There is a time, temptation's on the run
Dreamer you've had your way
Soldier you've had your day, in the sun
Now it's time, for us to begin again

Chorus:
Le bel age
Only our love will remain
Le bel age
Close to the truth once again

There comes a time (there comes a time)
When you must find your way
Begger has made his bed
Wrapped in a silhoutte, of gold and gray
Now it's time, yes it's time, for us to begin again

(Repeat chorus twice)

Standing so close to me, the possibility
To change our destiny, I see it perfectly, moving so naturally
Nothing can stand in our way

(Repeat chorus three times)

Le bel age
Only our love will remain (only)
Le bel age (only our love, only our love)
Close to the truth once again

(Repeat chorus)

Le bel age (Le bel age)
Le bel age

Cold sweat, sweat it out in the land of the midnight sun
Walk it off - sort it out, figure out what you're running from
I'm all alone on the outside of town
It's a wild night at the carnival of souls
They're strong armed in neon and out of control
It's late at night and no one's around
Walking in the underground

Night calls, and the sound marks the start of the masquerade
Sirens flash, stains the glass as you pass in the street parade
Loose change losers are double parked
Faces marked like cards at the bottom of the deck
Readin' the future no one expects
They don't look up as they shuffle down

Walking in the underground
Walking in the underground
Walking in the underground

Cold sweat, sweat it out in the land of the midnight sun
Walk it off - sort it out, figure out what you're running from
Nobody's children, more lost than found
Play in the shadows like beautiful dolls
Backlit in moonlight, steppin' on stars
A silent dance to an empty sound

Walking in the underground
Walking in the underground
Ooh, walking in the underground

Yeah walkin' Ooh, Ooh, Ooh,
Walk On
Ooh, Ooh.........
Yeah, Yeah.......

. . .


You punch your way through a world of good intentions
People don't matter, all you want to do is win
And nothing ever comes too fast for a man of means
'Cause all you want is everything
Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life
Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life
Whoa, ooh, ooh, ooh

Time finds you in a new green situation
Your savoir faire fits you like a second skin
And nothing ever comes too fast for a man of means
'Cause all you want is everything

Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life
Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life

Nothing can stop you now
No one can show you how
Nothing can touch you now

Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life
Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life

Nothing can stop you now
No one can show you how
And nothing can touch you now

Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life
Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life, yeah

Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life
Well all right
'Cause you're living the big life

Big life
Big life
Big life

Firewalkers feel no pain from the coals
Ruled by passion beyond their control
Vengeance is king in the zone of red vision
Sparks fly and tempers flair
You see the enemy everywhere
Hate shines like burning bridges in your eyes
In love and war we stand alone
Trustin' nothin' but our own, red vision

Anger sharpens your point of view
Fans the fire in and around you
Farenheit in the realm of your senses
In love and war we stand alone
Trusting nothing but our own, red vision

Mind like a steel trap, heart like a prison
With tears of rage, we burn in our red vision

Once again, I'll walk the coals
Tiptoe through the minefields of your soul
I've come to take you home

Red vision
Red vision
Red vision
Red vision

Oh, red vision.......

. . .


I see a house, a house of stone
A lonely house, 'cause now you're gone
7 rooms, that's all it is
7 rooms of gloom
I live with emptiness, without your tenderness
You can take the dream I had for us, and turn that dream into dust
I watch a phone that never rings
I watch your door that never brings
Brings you back into my life, and turn this darkness into light
I'm all alone in this house, turn this house into a home

I need your touch to comfort me
Your tender, tender arms that once held me
Without your love, your love inside
This house is just a place to run and hide
7 rooms, that's all it is
7 rooms of gloom
I live with emptiness, without your tenderness

Don't make me live from day to day
Watching a clock that ticks away
Another day, another way, another reason for me to say
I need you here, here with me
I need you darling, desperately

I'm all alone, all alone in this house that's not a home

I miss your love, I once had known
I miss your kiss that was my very, very own
In the silence that surrounds me, lonely walls - they stand
7 rooms, that's all it is
7 rooms of gloom
I live with emptiness, without your tenderness

And all the windows are painted black
I'll wait right here until you get back
I'll keep waiting, and waiting, until your face again I see
Darling, yeah hea, huh

I want you back now
I keep waiting, and waiting
I want you back now
I keep waiting, and waiting, come on back now....
I keep waiting, and waiting, and waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting
I want you back now, whoa - now
Come on back now...

It's always one thing or another, seems like we never get ahead
Reaching out for the brass ring, and landing in the dirt instead
We can't get past yesterday, we're only counting down from ten
It seems like every move we make, brings us back where we began
You've gotta run between the raindrops
If you wanna see the sun
Run, run, run, between the raindrops
Run between the raindrops, if you wanna see the sun
Run, run, run, - run Baby run

Somewhere there's a sun that's shining
Somewhere we'll find a life that's good
Some way I'm gonna make it happen
Just like you always knew I could

We're treading water on a river of tears
And I don't know what to do
I can take a beating, but I ain't gonna let it happen to you, you

You've gotta run between the raindrops
If you wanna see the sun
Run, run, run, between the raindrops
Run between the raindrops, if you wanna see the sun
You gotta run, run, run, - run Baby run

We're treading water on a river of tears
And I don't know what to do

You've gotta run between the raindrops
If you wanna see the sun
Run, run, run, between the raindrops
Run between the raindrops, if you wanna see the sun
Run, run, run, - run Baby run

Run between the raindrops, if you wanna see the sun
You gotta run, run, run, - run Baby run

You gotta run, run, run, - run Baby run

. . .


This bloody road remains a mystery
This sudden darkness fills the air
What are we waiting for?
Won't anybody help us?
What are we waiting for?

We can't afford to be innocent
Stand up and face the enemy
It's a do or die situation
We will be invincible

This shattered dream you cannot justify
We're gonna scream until we're satisfied
What are we running for?
We've got the right to be angry
What are we running for?
When there's nowhere we can run to anymore

We can't afford to be innocent
Stand up and face the enemy
It's a do or die situation
We will be invincible

And with the power of conviction
There is no sacrifice
It's a do or die situation
We will be invincible

Won't anybody help us?
What are we running for?
When there's nowhere, nowhere we can run to anymore

We can't afford to be innocent
Stand up and face the enemy
It's a do or die situation
We will be invincible

And with the power of conviction
There is no sacrifice
It's a do or die situation
We will be invincible


Yeah (we can't afford to be innocent)
Yeah, yeah (stand up and face the enemy)
(It's a do-or-die situation)
(We will be invincible)

Oo-ooh, yeah, yeah (we can't afford to be innocent)
Yeah (stand up and face the enemy)
Yeah, yeah (it's a do-or-die situation)
(We will be invincible)

. . .


Here we go again, round and round again
Gettin' nowhere fast
It's the same old thing
One more final scene never meant to last
Who'll be the first one who's leaving?
Who'll be the last one to cry?
Something just keeps me believing, in our love tonight
I can't seem to say good-bye
Though I've tried a million times
The more I learn, the less I know
About the art of letting go

So we take our time, and we make our moves
Oh, so carefully
Old ways seem so safe, habits hard to break
When you're here with me

I don't know how hard to hold you
No easy way to be free
Something just keeps me believing, that we're meant to be

I can't seem to say good-bye
Though I've tried a million times
The more I learn, the less I know
About the art of letting go

For all we feel, and all we know
It's not easy letting go

I can't seem to say good-bye
Though I've tried a million times
The more I learn, the less I know
About the art of letting go

We got beyond letting go (we got beyond letting go)
You gotta let go, you gotta let go
Yeah, Yeah
