Richard O'Brien - Absolute O'Brien: 11 song lyrics        6,039 views

Don't call me I've got your number
but you won't see me 'til you slumber
think of us a blackbird and a dove
Oh let me be your incubus of love

If madame is feeling cautious
drift into the arms of Morpheus
and link us like the hand is to the glove
Oh let me be your Incubus of love

I'm going to come for you like a thief in the night time
(He's going to creep up to your side)
I'm going to bring relief to you at the right time
(there's no place that you can hide)
Oh let me be the one you're thinking of
Oh let me be your incubus of love

I'll be yours until Aurora
lights the morning with her aura
that rosy fingered nimbus from above
oh let me be your incubus of love

(He's going to come for you like a thief in the night time)
I'm going to creep up to your side
(He's going to bring relief to you at the right time)
there's no place that you can hide
oh let me be the one you're thinking of
oh let me be your Incubus of love
oh let me be your Incubus of love

When the load gets too heavy
And you can't take the heat
When your breath gets unsteady
And you're dead on your feet
It's up to you
Which cup you brew
It's up to you
Better look to the future
Better face the dark ships
Better shoot for what suits you
When you cash in your chips
It's up to you
Which cup you brew
It's up to you
And when you sum up the time
You've spent on presenting your reason or rhyme
Forever inventing
New dreams to come true
New things to do or not to do
It's up to you
Which cup you brew
It's up to you

It's up to you
Which cup you brew
It's up to you

No one here to convert you
No one here to pretend
But the world might desert you
And you just might need a friend
It's up to you
Which cup you brew
Then when you add up the days
You've wasted in waiting around in a haze
And never creating the captain and crew

Of the good ship, guess who?
Guess you do
It's up to you
Which cup you brew

It's up to you
Which cup you brew
It's up to you

Why should I even try
To leave the light and die
It's so warm in your embrace
I like it when I'm in your face
Ain't that to cry for
Ain't that to die for

When someone hits the spot
Then they are not forgot
Especially when someone
Shines brighter than the morning sun
Ain't that to cry for
Ain't that to die for

Some people they say that they don't want to come out
Some people they say that's what they're all about
Now the quick of us pick Icarus as a stinker of a pilot
But anyone that near the sun
Ain't no shrinking violet
Ain't that to die for

Ain't that to die for
Ain't that to cry for
Ain't that to die for

So let that love light blaze
Engage the gaze of praise
If you don't have a voice
Then baby you don't have no choice
Ain't that to cry for
Ain't that to die for

Poor Girl, poor boy
They're both aching for the same joy
Seems they never did discover
That each other was their lover
Poor Girl, poor boy
They're both fixed by their fixation
They're both fixed by their fixation

Poor he, poor she
They're both barking up the same tree
If they could only get together
They could face the stormy weather
Poor he, poor she
They're both fixed by their fixation
They're both fixed by their fixation

Poor boy, poor girl
They're both surfing on the same curl
Seems they choose to lose in random
Never choose to cruise in tandem
Poor boy, poor girl
They're both fixed by their fixation
They're both fixed by their fixation

When you're hot and got that erotic feeling
There's only one dance when it's push comes to shove
It don't take long to get it when you got it get it healing
the name of the dance is the dance of love
and it's divine
the dance of love and it's divine

When you're hot to trot out an exotic notion
exactly like the one I know you're thinking of
It don't take long to get it when you got it get the motion
the name of the dance is the dance of love
and it's divine
the dance of love and it's divine

There's no need to know me
just come to me show me
that I'm light you're the moth
together we can do the dance of love
come to me slowly
with no sanctimony just love
we'll do the dance of love
and it's divine
the dance of love and it's divine

So when you're cool to fool with a hypnotic ache you
relate to like the piano does to Rachmaninoff
it don't take long to get it when you got it let it take you
the name of the dance is the dance of love
and it's divine
the dance of love and it's divine

Oh everybody here suffers from their sanity
thinking too much has its own built in inanity
stop egging the disease on by begging for a reason from above
just do the dance of love
and it's divine
the dance of love and it's divine

The low autumn sun of the late afternoon
Brings sweet heaven's fire and desire to the room
You hold me so gently our hearts intertwine
And for one hundred dollars an hour
or part thereof - you're mine

Still running from life and hiding from death
I lay here beside you, your touch stays my breath
If this is illicit we're partners in crime
And for one hundred dollars an hour
Or part thereof - you're mine

You're every woman - You're every girl
That I've ever known
The moon the earth the waters
Eve's eternal daughters, my corner stone
I bring my hunger to your shrine
And for one hundred dollars an hour
One hundred dollars an hour
Or part thereof - you're mine

So cool this fool's fire that rages within
And we'll both disengage from the wages of sin
Sweet goddess of healing the artistry's thine
And for one hundred dollars an hour
Or part thereof - you're mine
And for one hundred dollars an hour
or part thereof - you're mine

I'm a sucker for a heartbeat

If ever I wanted to know
The word that occurred on the street
I'd just listen to the heartbeat
To the rhythm of the heartbeat

If ever I wanted to go
and trick a victory out of defeat
I'd just listen to the heartbeat
To the rhythm of the heartbeat

Then if someone that you don't know
Should give you the big hello
Well you'll never get shaken
No you'll never get taken if you listen to the heartbeat
To the rhythm of the heartbeat
So whatever you want to do
You'd do it better if you did it as you
No don't follow your nose where the sun never goes
Instead of listening to the heart beat
To the rhythm of the heartbeat

Oh listen to my heartbeat
Oh woah woah woah take a lesson from my heartbeat
Oh no no no there's no messing with my heartbeat
Oh woah woah woah what a blessing is a heartbeat

When it gets sentimental and slow
don't fight it you might miss a treat
unless you're listening to the heart beat
the heady rhythm of the heartbeat
and then when the tempo says go
and you're yearning to turn indiscreet
Just keep listening to the heartbeat
the steady rhythm of the heartbeat

Then if somebody turns your head
And edges you onto the bed
Just forget you're refined
stop improving your mind and start listening to the heartbeat
to the rhythm of the heartbeat
No no you don't need a PhD
It's maybe easier than ABC
You don't have to be smart
You just open your heart
And keep on listening to the heartbeat
The rhythm driven by the heartbeat

Oh listen to my heartbeat
Oh woah woah woah take a lesson from my heartbeat
Oh no no there's no messing with my heartbeat
Oh woah woah woah what a blessing is a heartbeat

He can tell you things you want to hear
Secrets whispered in a lover's ear
So you start building dreams
But it's not what it seems
And it all seemed so sure
I've been there before
I've been there before

He can make your heart start with a look
You let him read you like an open book
Then he betrays your trust
And all your dreams turned to dust
And I wrote the score
I've been there before
I've been there before

But this is something you can no-can-do about
No this is nothing new
I know it's something you can do without
But you've got to see it through
I've been there before
I've been there before

He stands before you he's so meek and mild
He lets you hold him like a little child
Then he tells you his fears
And you make love through the tears
Then he walks out the door
I've been there before
I've been there before

Each one treads their separate path
Some steep, some straight, some narrow
Some play a game of psychopath
And some play Five Card Tarot
Some flounce and pounce and then renounce
The World all its joys
They've had their fun and now they're done
Running with the noisy boys

Each one has their separate laugh
Some cheap, some late, some hollow
Some love to give their autograph
Some love the God Apollo
Some say that rules are just for fools
And using them destroys
The brother thing and the other thing
Running with the noisy boys

So if you're living for the minute
You should give all you can give
And then live it to the limit
And start doing it with - the noisy boys
Running with the noisy boys

Each one has their separate half
Some deep, some great, some shallow
Some reap the wheat, some reap the chaff
Some burn the midnight tallow
Some stay up late and master fate
With exec-high-tec toys
Some rue the day, some sue, some pay
Running with the noisy boys

At quiet moments when alone
I think of you my child full grown
Across the oceans through the stars
In downtown dives and low life bars
I cling on to this love our ours

For I will always hold you in my heart
I never knew how far I'd fall
A poor blind fool who had it all
I threw your simple love away
Too busy living for the day
True happiness for you I pray

For I will always hold you in my heart
If you put your thoughts of me behind you
Well that's only right
But sentimentally, I hold you
So gently I enfold you - every lonely night

for I hold you in my heart
I sit alone, I never mix
I got myself an instant fix
And through a haze of gin-joint juice
your loving face I reproduce
Thank God this poison has its use
For I will always hold you in my heart

If I should call you an angel
It's because I think you're divine
But you must make sure that you don't change at all
Or I just might change my mind
I've loved many a woman and left many a man
Between the devil and the deep blue sea
But you've got something I don't understand
And it brings out the angel in me

For many days and many nights I've loved the thought of you
Through many years too many tears you know I've sought for you
You gave this iron fist a velvet glove
And when we kissed that's when I fell in love
Maybe I'm a devil but this time I'm on the level
And you bring out the angel in me

I called it fun like hit and run a game of peek a boo
I'd climb inside my Mister Hyde and come and seek for you
I've been insane with pain and jealousy
But now I'll change all that just wait and see
Maybe I'm a demon and maybe I'm just dreaming
But you bring out the angel in me

Yes you do
Yes you know it's true
Oooh oooh
