When the soul of the city was laid to rest
And the night's forgotten and left for dead
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)


I happened at a house built of living light
Where everything evil disappears and dies
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)


When they love you and they will (and they will)
Tell them all they'll love in my shadow
And if they try to slow you down (slow you down)
Tell them all to go to hell

When they love you and they will (and they will)
Tell them all they'll love in my shadow
And if they try to slow you down (slow you down)
Tell them all to go to hell

I settled in slowly to this house that you call home
To blood and breath, fair flesh and bone
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)


Blush of our bodies in the heat of the night
All day, the day after, reddened the skies
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)


When they love you and they will (and they will)
Tell them all they'll love in my shadow
And if they try to slow you down (slow you down)
Tell them all to go to hell

When they love you and they will (and they will)
Tell them all they'll love in my shadow
And if they try to slow you down (slow you down)
Tell them all to go to hell

It's a lifeless life with no fixed address to give
But you're not mine to die for anymore, so I must live

Born of a bottle from heaven's hand
And now you know and here I am
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)


When they love you and they will (and they will)
Tell them all they'll love in my shadow
And if they try to slow you down (slow you down)
Tell them all to go to hell

When they love you and they will (and they will)
Tell them all they'll love in my shadow
And if they try to slow you down (slow you down)
Tell them all to go to hell

When they love me and they will (and they will)
I'll them all they'll love in your shadow
And if they try to slow me down (slow you down)
I'll tell them all to go to hell

When they love me and they will (and they will)
I'll them all they'll love in your shadow
And if they try to slow me down (slow you down)
I'll tell them all to go to hell
