« fly-by-night » dans des paroles
Trust your inner vision, don't let others change your mind
And then you really gotta burn it up
And make another fly by night
Get a run for your money and take a chance
And it'll turn out right
Who's talking to the people who left
I swallow the wind, I swallow my cries
I settle my steps on someone else's
I fly into the wind, I fly by night
In the eardrums, in the tempo
I see the sea, Normandy
Tonight she'll be the devil's bride
Tonight, tonight, the devil's bride
I've seen her fly by night
the devil at her side.
They cursed and swore us hell and disaster.
There's so much in a name and so much more in you
Few understand the union of woman and man
And sex and a tingle is where they assume that it land
But that's fly by night for you and the sky I write
For in these cold Chi night's moon, you my light
If heaven had a height, you would be that tall
