The Dead Lovers Berlin, Germany

Track Name: One More Time
The Dead Lovers - One More Time

I’ve got a shot gun wedding and a nerve of steel,
But baby take your hands from the steering wheel.
There’s a jet trace crawling in the sky,
And if I look away then I catch your eye.

You got your best dress on and you’re feeling fine,
But there’s a black train coming along the line. Yeah.

One more time, one more time.
One more time, one more time.
One more time, one more time.
Then you’ve got to go.

You got a broken clock on the kitchen wall,
And there’s a carpet stain where the sadness falls.
There’s a jet trace crawling in the sky,
And if I look away then I catch your eye.

You’ve got a distant look but you’re feeling fine,
But there’s a black train coming along the line.

One more time, one more time.
One more time, one more time.
One more time, one more time.
Then you’ve got to go.
You got your best dress on and you’re feeling fine,
But there’s a black train coming along the line. Yeah.
One more time, one more time.
One more time, one more time.
One more time, one more time.
Then you've go to go.
Then you've go to go.
Then you've go to go.
Then you've go to go.
Track Name: Baby Fuck That
The Dead Lovers - Baby Fuck That

You say the nights are dark without me,
And the days are turning black.
But I don’t believe a word,
So baby fuck that. Baby fuck that.

You play so cool, the one and only,
You’re a spy in the house in the house of wax.
But I need a human touch,
So baby fuck that. Baby fuck that.

When you go close the door and never look back.
When you go close the door.

You come around and you’re so cagey.
The madness in the shapes you throw,
And the bad songs on your radio won’t save me.
You drive me crazy.

Beneath the stars you promised riches.
But you can have your money back.
All I need is some love,
So baby fuck that. Baby fuck that.
Baby fuck that. Baby fuck that.

When you go close the door and never look back.
When you go close the door.
Track Name: 59 Yards
The Dead Lovers – 59 Yards

59 yards from your house to my house
59 yards away
There's a white car waiting to take me
Waiting to take me, waiting to take me
59 yards from your house to my house
59 yards away

And I can't help thinking about it
I can't help thinking about it
I can't help thinking about it
One day I'm going to die

Telephone lines scratch my name out
Across the sky
There's a white car waiting to take me
Waiting to take me, Waiting to take me
Telephone lines scratch my name out
Across the sky

Keep seeing something flicker
In the corner of my eye
There's a white car waiting to take me
Waiting to take me, Waiting to take me
Keep seeing something flicker
In the corner of my eye

And I can't help thinking about it
I can't help thinking about it
I can't help thinking about it
One day I'm going to die

And I can't help thinking about it...
Track Name: Lonely
The Dead Lovers - Lonely

The world can be a dreadful place,
And you’re to slow to win that race.
You’re lonely, lonely,
Lonely in a dark, dark night.

No chance to recover.
No chance to find respite.
(And you can stop dreaming.)

And no, nobody saw you cry.
No, nobody heard your scream and shout.

You gambled for the highest stakes,
But there´s no give, in give and take.

You´re lonely, lonely,
Lonely in a dark, dark night.

Nobody saw you cry,
And nobody heard you screaming.

And you don’t come around anymore, just like you used to.
You don’t come around, anymore just like you used to.

Nobody saw you cry,
And nobody heard you screaming.
Track Name: Special K
The Dead Lovers - Special K

The pimps stay up and the hoes stay down.
And everything comes around goes around.
But you never should have let her wear your golden crown.

And everybody, everybody knows (you),
(Your) name like a rash all over town.
The word on the streets is she gets around.

And I can see you’re changing now.
And I can feel you changing now.

All the things you, all the words you say.
All your thoughts are made for you, by Special K.

And everybody, everybody knows (you),
(Your) name like a rash all over town.
The word on the streets is she gets around.

And I can feel you changing now.
And I can see you’re changing now.

All the things you, all the words you say.
All your thoughts are made for you, by Special K.
Your drug today.
Track Name: The Specialist
The Dead Lovers - The Specialist

You’d better drive me home when I want to go.
There is no need to stay alone.
When I want to go, you’d better drive me home.

You’d better pray you don’t lose control.
I don’t need to play a theatrical role.
If I want go you’d better drive me home.

You’d better run, run, run to me baby,
You’d better run, run, run, if you catch my drift.
You’d better run, cos I’m a specialist.

You’re modest baby without a doubt.
You never make a scene, you never scream and shout.
You got so much to be modest about.

You’d better run, run, run to me baby,
You’d better run, run, run, if you catch my drift.
You’d better run, cos I’m a specialist.
Run, run, run to me baby.

Run, run, run to me baby.
Run, run, run to me baby.

You’d better run, run, run to me baby,
You’d better run, run, run, if you catch my drift.
You’d better run, cos I’m a specialist.
Run, run, run to me baby.
Track Name: The Storm
The Dead Lovers - The Storm

The stars are falling from the sky again.
The darkest nights will be our only friend.
Beneath the silver pine, when life was good and you were mine,
But it’s over, over for us now.

The storm came down on the roofs of our town,
It washed away all the pain.
The storm came down and in its beauty we’ve been drowned.
Only memories remain.

Can you hear the thunder of the midnight train?
It fills the night with such unspoken pain.
The fruit was on the vines, but the birds few south in broken lines,
Cos it’s over, over for us now.

The storm came down on the roofs of our town,
It washed away all the pain.
The storm came down and in its beauty we’ve been drowned.
Only memories remain.
The storm came down on the roofs of our town,
It washed away all the pain.
The storm came down and in its beauty we’ve been drowned.
Only memories remain.

Through the night, patience gets you through.
You know me and baby I know you,
When you wait, then waiting’s all your do,
For love to come, to come, love to come.

The storm came down on the roofs of our town,
It washed away all the pain.
The storm came down and its beauty we’ve been drowned.
Only memories remain.
Track Name: Darkness
The Dead Lovers - Darkness

The sun can come back tomorrow,
I don’t need it today.
Darkness is all that I want,
It helps keep the pain away.

The world can leave me in sorrow,
Despair can meet me half way,
Darkness is all that I need,
It helps keep the monsters at bay.

The more, the more that you talk,
The less, the less that you say.
With the first light of the morning,
I’ll be so far away.
I’ll be so far away.

The sun can come back tomorrow,
I don’t need it today.
Darkness is all that I want,
It helps keep the pain away.
Track Name: Kill Me
The Dead Lovers - Kill Me

And we were young, and our hearts were pure like snow.
We never knew how much back stabbing there would grow.

There’s no protection you can use,
As the lights go out on your all avenues.

I don’t care if it’s bringing you down,
I don’t care you’re the talk of the town,
If you want me you’d better come round,
And come on and kill me.

You took your chance, but like Dexter on Nyquil,
You had me cling filmed, but you could not do the kill.

Stony ground falls between us.
I’m under your skin, yeah I’m so intravenous.

I don’t care if it’s bringing you down,
I don’t care you’re the talk of the town,
If you want me you’d better come round,
And come on and kill me.

The airwaves are weeping, from your broken dreams,
The casting show losers, on your plasma screens.

I don’t care if it’s bringing you down,
I don’t care you’re the talk of the town,
If you want me you’d better come round,
And come on and kill me.
I don’t care if it’s bringing you down,
I don’t care you’re the talk of the town,
If you want me you’d better come round,
And come on and kill me.
Track Name: Freak Show
The Dead Lovers - Freak Show

Oh how they love you, the fruits of fame.
They make you dance and writhe, they even know your name.

Shine a light on you, shine a light on you today.

There’s pain and fear in your eyes, never mind.
To be here so far, you’d rob your own mother blind.

You’re like a freak show.
You’re like a freak show.
You’re like a freak show.
You’re like a freak show.

They’ll spit you when they’ve had their fill.
Back to your old life will be such a bitter pill.

Shine a light on your, shine reality your way.

And your dignity is swallowed up in flames,
When it’s all said and done you’d do it all again.

You’re like a freak show.
You’re like a freak show.
You’re like a freak show.
You’re like a freak show.

And I saw your face in every magazine,
The plastic incarnation to a twisted empty dream.

You’re like a freak show.
You’re like a freak show.
You’re like a freak show.
You’re like a freak show.
Track Name: Smash Up
The Dead Lovers - Smash Up

Sweet, sweet sugar and the stick,
That so well working old trick.
Some girls have a cruel streak.
And some real men love it.

I bestow you sweet dreams,
From a distance it’s not what it seems.
In the lap of luxury you don’t need to feel guilty.

Smash Up, that is all what you get.
Smash Up, that is you can expect.

So smooth, so nice, so lovely but cold as ice.
Just accept my advice,
Or you will lose a piece of paradise.

Smash Up, that is all what you get.
Smash Up, that is you can expect.

Smash Up, that is all what you get.
Smash Up, that is you can expect.
Smash Up, that is all what you get.
Smash Up, that is you can expect.
Track Name: Big World
The Dead Lovers - The Big World

You know the weather’s fine.
It’s just a state of mind, now you’re in the big world.
You tripped the borderlines,
And left it all behind, now you’re in the big world.

So many faces, keep you away,
So many feelings come your way.

You come alive, come alive.
You come alive, you come alive.
You come alive, come alive.
You come alive, you come alive.


You spilled the sacred wine,
You kissed the dollar signs, now you’re in the big world.
Your clouds are silver lined,
You’re singing to the nines, now you’re in the big world.

Your cold embraces, on all saints day,
So many feelings come your way.

And if you didn’t know, then you do now.
There’ll be no turning back so baby take a bow.

You come alive, come alive.
You come alive, You come alive.
You come alive, come alive.
You come alive, you come alive.
You come alive, come alive.
You come alive, You come alive.
You come alive, come alive.
You come alive, you come alive.
You come alive, come alive.
You come alive, You come alive.
You come alive, come alive.
You come alive, you come alive.
