​Dead Lights

This song is by China and appears on the album Sign in the Sky (1989).

Original video
Lust and hope crumbled to ashes
What once was there had no reason to be
Primal attraction, late night passion
We should have known it was best left alone

Beyond the point of accusation
The road is blocked, there'll be no comin' back
Our motivation only sensation
There should have been more than flesh in our sin

Deceptions of the night time
Shattered by the day
But even if I knew the end
I would have started anyway

Dead lights, last rites fadin' to gray
Dead lights, dark ice driftin' away

She wore despair like a rank on her sleeve
Battle ribbons, the lines on her face
Her only actions; misfits reactions
The cuts aren't clean but no scars can be seen

Deceptions of the night time
Shattered by the day
But even if I knew the end
I would have started anyway

Dead lights, last rites fadin' to gray
Dead lights, dark ice driftin' away

Dead lights, last rites fadin' to gray
Dead lights, dark, dark ice
I see you driftin' away
I see you driftin' away

After the strain, exhausted and drained
Lyin' together and lyin' apart
No sense of pain, avoidin' all blame
We have so little to say

Deceptions of the night time
Shattered by the day
But even if I knew the end
I would have started anyway

Dead lights, last rites fadin' to gray
Dead lights, dark ice driftin' away

Dead lights, last rites fadin' to gray
Dead lights, dark, dark ice
I see you driftin' away

(Dead lights) These are the last rites
(Dead lights) Dark, dark ice
(Dead lights) Fadin' to gray
(Dead lights) I see you driftin' away
(Dead lights) Driftin' away
(Dead lights) I see you driftin' away
(Dead lights) Driftin' away
