Phantom of the Paradise Soundtrack: 9 song lyrics        36,399 views

We'll remember you forever Eddie
Thru' the sacrifice you made we can't believe the price you paid
For love

Little Eddie Mitty born in Jersey City
Started singin' when he was five
Never knew his father mother didn't bother
To catch his last name fast as he came

He was off and flying
Times were really trying
Eddie and his mother alone
Soon another mister soon a baby sister
Mama kept swingin' and Eddie kept singin'

Ah ya ya ya ya ya
Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Ya ya ya ya for love for love

And now the tragic story
Eddie's sister, Mary Louise, needed an operation
To get the money he would have to become an overnight sensation
Eddie believed the American people
Had wonderful, lovegiving hearts
His well publicized end he considered would send
His memorial album to the top of the charts...and it did

Chorus

When a young singer dies to our shock and surprise
In a plane crash or flashy sports car
He becomes quite well known
And the kindness he's shown has made more than one post mortem star
Well you did it Eddie and though it's hard to applaud suicide
You gave all you could give so your sister could live
All America's choked up inside

We'll remember you forever Eddie
Thru' the sacrifice you made we can't believe the price you paid
For love

I was not myself last night couldn't set things right with apologies or flowers
Out of place as a cryin' clown who could only frown and the play went on for hours
And as I lived my role I swore I'd sell my soul for one love
Who would stand by me and give me back the gift of laughter
One love who would stand by me and after making love we'd...

Dream a bit of style
We'd dream a bunch of friends
Dream each others smile
And dream it never ends

I was not myself last night in the morning light I could see the change was showing
Like a child who was always poor reaching out for more I could feel the hunger growing
And as I lost control I swore I'd sell my soul for one love
Who would sing my song and fill this emptiness inside me
One love who would sing my song and lay beside me while we'd...

Dream a bit of style
We'd dream a bunch of friends
Dream each others smile
And dream it never ends

All my dreams are lost and I can't sleep
And sleep alone could ease my mind
All my tears have dried and I can't weep
Old emotions may they rest in peace and dream, dream a bunch of friends
Rest in peace, and dream, dream it never ends

Carburetors man, that's what life is all about
That's what life is all about, that's what life is all about
That's what life is all about, that's what life is all about

I was not myself last night lost a fight, my woody barely running
By a dude I should have beat, and on the street a blow like that is stunning

I finally lost control and tore my tuck-n-roll upholstery
Where my baby sits up close to me
That's supposed to be what our life is all about
Upholstery where my baby sits up close to me
That's supposed to be what our life is all about

Of all life's mysteries the greatest one I've seen
My short runs better when it's clean

I was not myself last night ran a light without my registration
Where the cops were bound to see and you know me already on probation
I wound up on parole I tore my tuck-n-roll upholstery
Where my baby sits up close to me
That's supposed to be what our life is all about
Upholstery where my baby sits up close to me
That's supposed to be what our life is all about

Chorus

Caught up in your wheelin' dealin' you've got no time left for simple feelin'
I thought I knew you but I didn't know you at all
Trapped inside your world of worry you miss so much when you always hurry
Well slow down baby you'll only get hurt if you fall

Well you told me one time that you'd be somebody
That you weren't workin' just to survive
But you're workin' so hard that you don't even know you're alive
Workin' so hard to be somebody special not working just to survive
Well you're special to me babe but what I don't see babe is
Where you go once you arrive
Where we go once we arrive

Damn all evil that takes possession until your pipe dreams become obsessions
They scare me baby and we should have nothing to fear
I'm no child but I can't help wonder it seems like some kind of spell you're under
You're listnin' baby but somehow you don't really hear

Well you told me one time that you'd be somebody
That you weren't workin' just to survive
But you're workin' so hard that you don't even know you're alive
Workin' so hard to be somebody special not working just to survive
Well you're special to me babe but what I don't see babe is
Where you go once you arrive
Where we go once we arrive

Half asleep I hear a voice
Is it only in my mind
Or is it someone calling me someone I failed and left behind

To work it out I let them in
All the good guys and the bad guys that I've been
All the devils that disturbed me and the angels that defeated them somehow
Come together in me now

Face to face I greet the cast
Set in silence we begin
Companions in an empty room I taste their victory and sin

To work it out I let them in
All the good guys and the bad guys that I've been
All the devils that disturbed me and the angels that defeated them somehow
Come together in me now

A tale of beauty and the beast
I defend my soul from those who would accuse me
I share the famine and the feast
I have been the world and felt it turning seen the jester yearning to amuse me

Like a circus on parade
Seldom close enough to see
I wander through an angry crowd and wonder what became of me

To work it out I let them in
All the good guys and the bad guys that I've been
All the devils that disturbed me and the angels that defeated them somehow
Come together in me now

We need a man that is simple perfection
There's nothing that's harder to find
Someone to lead us protect us and feed us
And help us to make up our minds
We need a man that's sophisticated
Quiet and strong and well educated
Where to go what to do
Could it be somebody super like you

We need a man that can stand as a symbol
And symbols have got to be tall
Someone with taste and the tiniest waist
With his help would not life be a ball
If we had fun he would not restrain us
If we got caught he would just explain us
Where to go what to do
Could it be somebody super like you

We pledge allegiance to his gracefulness and charming manners
With a voice that's both sides choice he'll bring us to our knees in admiration
He is king of all who see and hear his perfect pitch
And more surprises when his time is come a stallion rises

We need a man with a head on his shoulders a nose that is simply divine
Hollywood smile and a perfect profile and with eyes that would sparkle and shine
Long flowing hair for a crowning glory
There'd be a man who could tell our story
Where to go what to do
Could it be somebody super like you

We pledge allegiance to his gracefulness and charming manners
With a voice that's both sides choice he'll bring us to our knees in admiration
He is king of all who see and hear his perfect pitch
And more surprises when his time is come a stallion rises
Rises...rises...rises

Life at last salutations from the other side
I can see that you're the devil's pride
Do you realize that all of you donated something horrible you hated that is part of you
I'm your nightmares comin' true I am your crime

Life at last sit and listen while the fun begins
Hearts are broken and the bad guys win
Sit and listen all the cutting up is easy
And this isn't for the queasy or the weak of heart
You had better start for home while there's still time

I'm the evil that you created gettin' horny and damned frustrated
Bored stiff and I want me a woman now

I'm the evil that you created gettin' horny and damned frustrated
Each of you must stop and try me all of you might satisfy me

Our love is an old love baby it's older than all our years
I have seen in strange young eyes familiar tears
We're old souls in a new life baby
They gave us a new life to live and learn
Some time to touch old friends and still return

Our paths have crossed and parted this love affair was started long long ago
This love survives the ages in its story lives are pages
Fill them up may ours turn slow

Our love is a strong love baby we give it all and still receive
And so with empty arms we must still believe
All souls last forever so we need never fear goodbye
A kiss when I must go...no tears...in time...we kiss hello

Roll on thunder shine on lightnin' the days are long and the nights are frightnin'
Nothing matters anyway and that's the hell of it
Winter comes and the winds blow colder well some grew wiser you just grew older
And you never listened anyway and that's the hell of it

Good for nothin' bad in bed nobody likes you and you're better off dead goodbye
We've all come to say goodbye goodbye
Born defeated died in vain
Super destruction you were hooked on pain and tho' your music lingers on
All of us are glad you're gone
If I could live my life half as worthlessly as you
I'm convinced that I'd wind up burning too

Love yourself as you love no other be no man's fool be no man's brother
We're all born to die alone y'know that's the hell of it
Life's a game where they're bound to beat you and time's a trick they can turn to cheat you
And we only waste it anyway and that's the hell of it

Good for nothin' bad in bed nobody likes you and you're better off dead goodbye
We've all come to say goodbye
Born defeated died in vain
Super destruction you were hooked on pain and tho' your music lingers on
All of us are glad you're gone
