​Daughter Of Darkness

This song is by Kevin Johnson and appears on the album The Sun Will Shine Again (1996).

And the crowd was sure, on the mezzanine floor
That they never saw her leaving
And the foyer at night was never too bright
And the light would have been deceiving
She was young and she was foolish
But she was nobody's fool as well
There was a vision of heaven in tangerine
Was all the doorman there could tell
And her face had a look of innocence
And her eyes had a look of fire
It never took too little of common sense
To be the victim of desire
And the night goes on
Yes, the night goes on

Daughter of darkness, child of the night
Drawn by the power of those big city lights
Wicked and heartless the world can be cruel
They warned me of living this life, of a fool

She was a cabaret singer who was hitching a ride
And I was the lonely driver
She just wanted to travel far and wide
And I just wanted to stay beside her
She was young and she was foolish
But she was something else as well
And through a hundred tunes in those smoke-filled rooms
I watched her weave her magic spell
And her face was a face of innocence
But her soul was a soul on fire
You never think too much of the consequence
When you're a victim of desire
And the night goes on
Yes, the night goes on

Daughter of darkness, where are you tonight
Out there among those big city lights
Wicked and heartless the world can be cruel
They warned me of living this life, of a fool

Daughter of darkness, child of the night
Drawn by the power of those big city lights
Wicked and heartless the world can be cruel
They warned me of living this life, of a fool

Daughter of darkness, where are you tonight
Out there among those big city lights
Wicked and heartless the world can be cruel
They warned me of living this life, of a fool
