The Girls from the Streets / 街の乙女

Suffocating eyes and fast hellos and last goodbyes
Surround the night of me
Mustache large like smoke from his cigar
Coughs up a joke and laughs a net ot sound
Swallowing the pinwheel clowns
Consuming all the women like a giant sponge
Snap! The waiters animate
Luxuriate like planets whirling 'round the sun
Collapsing next to me, shouts don't look sad
Things aren't so bad, they're just more wrong than right
His brandy-brim voice whispers
Come with me I hold the key, the city's ours tonight
Pays the barmaid, slaps her ass
She shrieks, her gold teeth flash with rapturous delight
Earthquaking the sawdust ground, he grabs my arm
And out into the famished night

Now two blazing leaves burning up ground
The tiny waltz of a merry go round
Cascading lights for every heartbeat
Tonight we'll sleep with the girls from the streets

Hurry faster, don't look back
His coattails snap, his laughter's burning in my ears
I ride upon this giant storm
Through rust-red rooms where shadows breathe from every
The world is up for auction sales
A thousand lies to send, the women's tear-tracked cheeks
Still, we'll dance them on and on
We can't stop now, not now until we reach the dawn

Quick give us your lips, give us your thighs
Give us your sad and devouring eyes
Cascading tears for every heartbeat
Tonight we'll sleep with the girls from the streets
