UNDER my skin

“Night In My Veins”

silouette

I see him standing silhouetted

In the lamp-light
I cross the street
And I quicken my pace
He cups his hands and he
Lights a cigarette
I find myself in the bones of his face

It’s just the night in my veins
Making me crawl in the dust again
It’s just the night
Under my skin
Slipping it in

He’s got his hands in my hair
And his lips everywhere
Oh yeah
It feels good
It’s alright
Even if it’s just
The night in my veins

He’s got me up against the back of a
Pick-up truck
Out of sight of the neon and glare
We might as well be on a beach
Under the moonlight
Love’s language reads the same
Anywhere yeah

It’s just the night in my veins
Making me crawl in the dust again
It’s just the night
Under my skin
Slipping it in

He’s got his chest on my back
Across a new cadillac
Oh yeah
It feels good
It’s alright
Even if it’s just
The night in my veins
Even if it’s just the night in my veins

I’ve got my head on the
Kerb and I can’t produce
A word
Oh year
It feels good
It’s alright
Even if it’s just
The night in my veins

It feels good
It’s alright
Even if it’s just
The night in my veins

Even if it’s just
The night in my veins
It feels good
It’s alright

“Love’s A Mystery”

Lovers of today unlike lovers of the past
They used to find a way to get a love affair to last
I saw him leaving, that’s all I had to see
If seeing is believing then

Love’s a mystery, it’s a mystery
It’ll rise without a warning leaving evidence and clues
Making headlines in the morning then it’s history
Love’s a mystery but I’ll do it again, I’ll do it again

Lovers of today are becoming too perverse
Get the feeling you are on stage badly unrehearsed
Had the moves done so perfectly
I guess all that proves is

Love’s a mystery, it’s a mystery
It’ll rise without a warning making leaving evidence and clues
Making headlines in the morning then it’s history
Love’s a mystery but I’ll do it again, I’ll do it again

The multiple offender should learn from his mistakes
I am ready to surrender if that’s what it takes
We did our time still in custody
If loving is a crime

Love’s a mystery but I’ll do it again, I’ll do it again
It’ll rise without a warning leaving evidence and clues
It headlines in the morning then it’s history
Love’s a mystery, love’s a mystery

“Mystery Achievement”

Mystery achievement
Don’t breathe down my neck no
I got no trophies on display
I sign them away
I mean what the heck
All of your promises
Don’t fill me with pride no
I just want to get out on the floor
And do the Cuban slide, slide, slide, slide

But every day, every nighttime I find
Mystery achievement
You’re on my mind
And every day, every nighttime I feel
Mystery achievement you’re so unreal

Mystery achievement
Where’s my sandy beach? yeah
I had my dreams like everybody else
But they’re out of reach
I said right out of reach
I could ignore you
Your demands are unending
I got no tears on my ice cream but you know me
I love pretending
