Meat Loaf

Meat Loaf
Dead Ringer For Love

Under your protective wing I walked into the night
And a thousand angry demons up and took flight
And I went running through the fields with the fever in my veins
And the rain came crashing down and tried to clear my name
Above my head, all in red, I could see you bearing down on me
You said you`re not running out, no you`re leaving now
I will find you, there is no way out
I`ll keep tracking you down in the still of this night
Forever, mine forever


Chorus:


Don`t leave your mark on me, I have to reply
I`m not staying, no, and I`m not just killing time
Don`t leave your mark on me, I have to reply,
I`m not staying, no
I`m not staying, no


Mistress of the darkness, accomplice of the night
A shadow in the doorway beckons me inside
And something led the way though I could not see its face
And a voice from deep inside me screamed to get out of this place
Above my head, all was said as the jailor turned the key on me
He said you`re not running out, no you`re not leaving now
There ain`t no way, there is no no way


(chorus)


This nightmare never ends, memories of absent friends
Masked illusions stare at me, point the finger silently
Stand accused as the jury scares, there`s a ghost in here somewhere
There`s a ghost in here somewhere


(chorus) - I`m not staying, no


Oh this nightmare really never ends,
this is memories of absent friends


(don`t leave your mark on me)


Oh this nightmare really never ends,
there`s a ghost in here somewhere


(don`t leave your mark on me)


(repeats out)
