lyrics

who will star in this love song

the night wind grows tired

who will star in this love song

with sex, blood and fire



will you take this small hand

though it's cold, weak and worn

do you dare strike this cheek

with hot tears it's been torn



who will star in this love song

a bed long since cold

who will star in this love song

with a firm touch to scold



will you look into these eyes

though they're bitten and blind

do you dare brush these lips

with deep lashes they're lined


best laid plans rot in tin cans

so meek and so stale

with long-faded suntans

and rusty old pails

it's yours for the taking

awake and it's shaking

lay claim and this time you won't fail


you will star in this love song

and prove me a liar

you will star in this love song

your kiss hard and dire



you will hold this fine frame

with a rule brave and bold

you will dare lay it down

and taste each breath he stole



like stains on a fine dress

it's time to put down

cast off this sublime mess

instead rip this gown

for once take the long road

this story's been foretold

you fell, but just look what you found

so get down on your knees and

thank each god you see then

look up, love, wrap your head around



you will star in this love song

my hands at your feet

you will star in this love song

the crowd takes their seats



you will take what was lost

and with faith in due time

you will beat a new life

in this tired heart of mine
