I'll come dancing through your door with hands out to the poor And you won't know my name but you will play my game And though your eyes will sleep sleep so very deep It can't keep me from your door Like a vampire I will call
And when the Sandman comes to you at last I'll take the reins
Like a river flowing south A virus coursing through your blood Bursting its banks and over the land Washing away the grains of sand And after all the faded years I look in the mirror on the edge of tears It seems I might have finally seen That haunting shadow was really me
There's a man who's followed me just about all of my life Being to you what I couldn't be I call him my insecurity He was strong when I was weak Spoke outloud when I couldn't speak
He takes your hand from your carriage And kisses you under the silver moon Taken by his charm hand on arm This white knight of gestures can never do wrong
I ran and I ran to go as far as I can Looking over my shoulders But always seeing that man Running after me on the horizon forever
He takes your hand from your carriage And kisses you under the silver moon Taken by his charm hand on arm This white knight of gestures can never be wrong
Shining bright a silver light On the long tall shadows of the night Spiralling down and out of control I know it's a dream but I can't let go
Cries for help fall on stony ground There's so much noise I can't hear a sound Forever falling and I can't sleep I pray the Lord my soul to keep
Looking for somewhere that's home to me now The king of the castle and his sacred cow I've travelled the world and by chance this is how The lies became true Between me and you Free spirit I've travelled so follow me now
I'll come dancing through your door With hands out to the poor You won't suspect at all Like a vampire I will call
