This song is by The Cure and appears on the movie soundtrack The Crow: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (1994) and on the Compilation box-set Join The Dots: B-Sides & Rarities 1978-2001 (2003).

Original video
'Don't look don't look,' the shadows breathe
Whispering me away from you
'Don't wake at night to watch her sleep
You know that you will always lose
This trembling adored
Tousled birdmad girl

But every night I burn
Every night I call your name
Every night I burn
Every night I fall again

"Oh don't talk of love," the shadows purr
Murmuring me away from you
"Don't talk of worlds that never were
The end is all that's ever true
There's nothing you can ever say
Nothing you could ever do"

Still every night I burn
Every night I scream your name
Every night I burn
Every night the dream's the same

Every night I burn
Waiting for my only friend
Every night I burn
Waiting for the world to end

"Just paint your face," the shadows smile
Slipping me away from you
"Oh it doesn't matter how you hide
We'll find you if we're wanting to
So slide back down and close your eyes
Sleep a while, you must be tired,"

But every night I burn
Every night I call your name
Every night I burn
Every night I fall again

Every night I burn
Scream the animal scream
Every night I burn
Dream the crow black dream

Every night I burn
Scream the animal scream
Every night I burn
Dream the crow black dream, yeah

Dream the crow black dream
Dream the crow black dream
Dream the crow black dream
Dream the crow black dream
