Long Live The New Flesh Lyrics



I Go Crazy - Lyrics taken from Some Kind Of Wonderful soundtrack version
Many thanks to www.somekindofwonderful.org for transcribing these lyrics

(spoken) Oh, I go crazy

I go crazy

I go crazy when I'm without you

What have I done today
Just sat and watched the jets fly over
A car goes by
And the sun goes down
We talk about the town

This city's mad in the head
And sick in the soul
All the stars flew away a long time ago
Isn't that nice
Like Miami Vice

I go crazy when I'm without you
I go crazy when I'm without you

Well your life is like an infants dream
It's like everything's on TV
You see your face in the mirror
Could it be your place in the mirror
And so we turn on the TV one more time
And we see that everything is fine

But what have I done today
I go crazy
What have I done today
I go crazy when I'm without you

I go crazy
I go crazy
I I I go crazy when I'm without you
Go crazy
I go crazy when I'm without you

What have I done today

What have I done today

Sue-Ellen looks so upset
This isn't the first time
And it won't be the last
Things going on behind her back
Oh they give you a heart attack

I go crazy when I'm without you, go crazy
I go crazy when I'm without you, go crazy
I go crazy when I'm without you
But what have I done today
I go crazy

I go crazy
I go crazy
I go crazy

But what have I done today
I go crazy
But what have I done today
I go crazy when I'm without you

I go crazy

I go crazy when I'm without you, go crazy
I go crazy when I'm without you, go crazy
I go crazy when I'm without you
But what have I done today
I go crazy

I go crazy
I go crazy
I go crazy

Lucky Day - N. Marsh/ Flesh For LULU          Return

All The highways lead to this town
I pick up the dics, kiss 'em, throw them down
Because its my lucky day
Oh my lucky day
My lucky day
I think its my luck day

Once upon a time, now
Moses, Pharauh and Robinson Crusoe
Discovered a goldmine in the middle of the desert
Stole a car and drove it to Vegas
Celebration come the day
Lady luck gonna smile my way
Said oh my luck day
It's my luck day

Gold, silver and gold
All you can hold
Your ace in the hole
Just like there's no tomorrow
You know what they say
Spend spend spend, its the only way

Because its my lucky day
Oh my lucky day
My lucky day
I think its my luck day

There's a one armed bandit
Standing there in the corner
Like a ringing telephone
Well it just won't leave me alone
It's gonna eat me out of house and home
Put a whole in my heart
All my dreams dashed against the rocks
We're all just waiting
For that lucky day to begin
Anyday i'm gonna win

Oh my lucky day
Its my lucky day
Oh my lucky day
Its my lucky day
My lucky day
Oh my lucky day

Gold, silver and gold
I kiss ya
Its my lucky day

Postcards From Paradise - K.Mills/ Flesh For LULU          Return

A postcard from paradise
Delivered by mortal hands
X marks the spot where you lay
Now the sun burns down on the sand

I watched you sleeping
Listened to you breathing
Wondered if you were dreaming, andf if you were
What were you dreaming?
And I fell under your spell
And I lay where I fell
So wind down your window
I think I'm gonna kiss you
I dont know what else to do
You send me

Postcards from paradise
Say I want you
You send me
Postcards from paradise
Yeah, you do
Like a car broke down in the rain
I just can't get started again
I want you
I want you to stay

Postcards from paradise
Delivered by mortal hands
X marks the spot where you lay
Now the sun burns down on the sand

There goes love again
7 day wondering
Out on the ledge again
Your'e threatening to jump again
Here comes temptation
Dragging it out again
Riding a bullet train
To your central nervous station
And I fell under your spell
And I lay where I fell
So wind down your window
I think I'm gonna kiss you
I dont know what else to do
You send me

Postcards from paradise
Say I want you
You send me
Postcards from paradise
Yeah, you do
Like a car broke down in the rain
I just can't get started again
I want you
I want you to stay
You send me

Hammer Of Love - R.Barker/ Flesh For LULU          Return

Look out Jack, I'll never look back
I'm down to kill, yeah I'm gonna attack
Survivors by night, lovers by day
Just bang in a nail, pull it out again

Ooh won'tcha
Nail me to the table
With the hammer of love
Just nail me to the table with the hammer of love

Who needs money when there's so much to dream?
Jump in the ocean, just jump in the street
I don't feel tired, I just wanna lay down
Just lay on the ground and waste some time
Promise me

You'll nail me to the table
With the hammer of love
Just nail me to the table with the hammer of love

Look out baby all over town
The stars come up and the sun goes down
Yeah, she's a real strong mama, lays steel on the railroad track
When she starts to love me, it almost breaks my back

Nail me to the table with the hammer of love
Just nail me to the table with the hammer of love
Nail me to the table right now
With the hammer of love
Just nail me to the table with the hammer of love

Baby you hurt me
Ooh take it easy now
You got the hammer of love

Siamese Twist - N.Marsh/ Flesh For LULU          Return

Face to Face
Hip to Hip
Four arms reach out
It’s a deadly grip (yeah we’re comin’ for ya)
Siamese babies, Siamese twist
Siamese baby, do the siamese twist

Anabella Grey
And the next of kin
More than just a sordid sideshow
You’re my best friend (‘cause you taught me how to dance)

Siamese babies
Siamese baby, do the siamese twist
Yeah, everybody knows
Shoulda known known known
Siamese babies, do the siamese twist

Twice as happy
Twice as bad
All hell broke loose
When one of you gets mad (oh, no, no)

Siamese babies
Siamese twist

Do the Siamese twist y’all

Two times love
Can only exist
If we stick together
I’m gonna give you a Siamese kiss now

Siamese babies

Do the Siamese twist

You should have known…no, no, no
Once you get the general gist, you
Learned how to do the Siamese twist…

Sooner Or Later - R.Barker/ Flesh For LULU          Return

Never wanted to see you sad
It's so easy to be bad
Sooner or later you'll let me down
Sooner or later you'll have to put me back down

If I'm able to compromise
All suspicion in your eyes
Sooner or later you'll let me down
Sooner or later you'll have to put me back down

Hey what's up? Oh the sky
Like an angel, flying high
Sooner or later you'll let me down
Sooner or later you'll have to put me back down

Hear the warning
Hear it loud and clear
Lights are flashing
Lets get out of here
Sooner or later you'll let me down
Sooner or later you'll have to put me back down

Always wanted to see you smile
Hopelessly happy
Like a child
Sooner or later you'll let me down
Sooner or later you'll have to put me back down

All I know is love exists
Love exists for longer than a kiss
Sooner or later you'll let me down
Sooner or later you'll have to put me back down
Sooner or later you'll let me down
Sooner or later you'll have to put me back down

Good For You - J.Mitchell/ Flesh For LULU          Return

If I could see you now
With my X-ray eyes
If I could see you now
Well I wouldn't wonder why

Hey, all you people out there
Where you think your'e going to
Everybody knows just what I'm going through
I say hey listen to me, listen to me
Iv'e got something good for me and it's gonna be
Good for you

Stretched out on some prison floor
With a glass of wine
They just want some company
I haven't got the time
It rained last night
Pennies from heaven
Be sure your'e umbrellas upside down

All you people out there
Where you think your'e going to
Everybody knows what I'm going through
I said hey listen, listen to me
Iv'e got something good for me and it's gonna be
It's gonna be good for you
Gonna be so good now
Gonna be so good
It's gotta be good

Well here she comes
Killer instinct in her eyes
I could never try to love her
She could see through my disguise

Well maybe somebody else could explain this better
I've only got myself to blame
She said hey listen, listen to me
Iv'e got something good for me
And it's gonna be good for you
Gonna be so good for you
Gonna be so good for you

I said hey listen, listen to me
Iv'e got something good for me and it's gonna be
It's gonna be
Good for you...

Crash - K.Mills/ Flesh For LULU          Return

Down there where the cars are stalling
On the corner I can hear her calling
Right out loud
Dive into the crowd

Out there where I can’t follow
Like a swimmer the sea won’t swallow
She won’t drown
She’ll be back around

One kiss won’t last forever
You can laugh or cry
I don’t wonder why
We crash together
Helpless at the wheel
How did it feel

What’s your name?
I wanna be your latest flame
This one won’t run & run
So Let’s fall around together
What’s on my mind?
Nothing that can’t be changed by time
Nothing is certain now except that…

Good times won’t last forever
You can laugh or cry
I don’t wonder why
We crash together
Watch the engine die
I don’t wonder why

So be my wildcat
You’ll never look back
You’re the cat that walks alone
You dance to nobody’s drum but your own

One kiss won’t last forever
You can laugh or cry
I don’t wonder why
We crash together
Helpless at the wheel
How did it feel

We crash together
…To love too long
There’s always something wrong
To love too long
We crash…

Way To Go - K.Mills/ Flesh For LULU          Return

Hot in my head
Heard what you said
It's fresh in my mind all the time
Money no object for beautification
But lov's no good for motivation
Throw away that diamond ring
I only want to see the shape of things

That's the right way to go

Clinging to the surface of the planet in a silk blue dress
You always looked your best under that duress
Throw away those childish things
I only want to see the shape of things

And that's the right way to go
That's the right way to go now
We may be taking different trails
We're talking different details
Let me know when your lucky ship sails

underneath this skin I own
There's someone I think you should know
Why don't you take it from me
That would be the way to go

And that's the right way to go
That's the right way to go, that's the right way to go
That's the right way to go

Sleeping Dogs - K.Mills/ Flesh For LULU          Return

Sentimental, when it suits you
You never remember when you dont have to
No leaves on the money tree
And I love a girl who don't love me

Get up, hit the roof
If you want to see the lie of the land as proof
A lot of things up in the air
When you're down in the basement, you don't care

Get up, hit the bricks
I never get enough of your party tricks
Pull that tail, rattle that box
Sleeping dogs never use no clocks

You'll sell everything
To get out of this hole your'e in
Breaking up the western way
We'll be happy in the east someday
Your'e sentimental- when it suits you
You never see the bullet that final shoots you
She'll say remember when
And what'll I say to her then

Come on, get up, hit the bricks
I never get enough of your party tricks
Pull that tail, rattle that box
Sleeping dogs never use no clocks

I don't know why
You won't let sleeping dogs lie

Come on, get up, reach for the sky
I'm gonna live till the day I die
I don't know why
You won't let sleeping dogs lie
Get up, hit the bricks
Baby baby, rattle that box
Sleeping dogs don't use no clocks
Get up, reach for the sky
I'm gonna live till the day I die
I don't know why
You won't let sleeping dogs lie
Sleeping dogs lie

Dream On Cowboy - J.Mitchell/ Flesh For LULU          Return

Well the wind is howling through my soul
As we take the spiral train down
Descend once again
Into the murky depths below

Well I've fallen into this water world
Drawn by troubles untold
A finger breaks into the world outside
Draws back again to curl up and sigh

Dream on cowboy
It's a dream
A whole lotta love and a whole lotta hate
All messed up just ready to break
Dream on cowboy
Yeah dream

Well I didn't have no alibi
Can't you hear the angels weep as I cry
A whole lotta love and a whole lotta hate
All messed up just ready to break

Can't you hear the angels weep
Can't you hear the angels weep
There's a whole lotta work to be done
And you won't find rest under the sun
So dream on
Dream on cowboy

We go far away from another world
The lonesome prairie trail
Another smoking gun on the floor
Me curled up, wounded once more
God knows no fashion
Fashion is no god
So dream on cowboy of the open plain
Dream on cowboy all through the rain
Dream on cowboy
Dream on cowboy
She's a rockabilly gurl
