COCAINE LADIES

DOUG SHARP LYRICS
CHARLIE MIDNITE MUSIC

INTRO

VERS 1
THE LINES ON YOUR FACE ARE CONSTANT REMINDERS
OF THE STRUGGLE RAGING WITHIN
WHERE CRYSTILLINE BEAUTY OF ONLY A MOMENT
DISSOLVES AS IT'S BLENDED WITH SIN.

VERS 2
THE SHADOWS OF MIDNIGHT DELIGHT IN YOUR DOWNFALL.
THEY BECKON YOU BACK ONE MORE TIME
WHILE OUR LOVE, OVERLONG, JUST SLIPS INTO MORNING
SEEKING THAT ONE FINAL RHYME.

CHORUS
So to Cocaine ladies in Paradise maybe
You know the warmth that I seek;
Tender embraces, the cat whose tail chases
The thing that I'm seeking to reach.
SEEKING TO REACH

VERS 3
FOOLS COME AND GO AND OFTEN ARE QUOTED
ESPECIALLY WHEN LYRICS ARE THIN.
AS YOU TURN AWAY, I THINK YOU COULD SAY
YOUR PLEASURE IS ALL THAT I'VE BEEN.

VERS 4
ONCE IN A LIFETIME LASTS BUT A MOMENT;
ETERNITY ENVIES THE PRIZE.
YOU BARGAIN AND BARTER FOR ALL OF THE ESSENCE
THEN STEAL IT AND SWEAR THAT YOU'RE WISE.

CHORUS
SO, TO COCAINE LADIES IN PARADISE MAYBE
YOU KNOW THE WARMTH THAT I SEEK;
TENDER EMBRACES, THE CAT WHOSE TAIL CHASES
THE THINK THAT I'M SEEKING TO REACH.

VERS 5
THERE ARE PLACES I GO IN TIMES OF EMOTION
THAT SOOTHE ME AND BOLSTER MY SOUL;
ESPECIALLY WHEN SHARP WINDS HOWL IN THE ALLEY
ENTICING ME INTO THE COLD.


VERS 6
OF THE PLACES AND FACES I STILL CAN REMEMBER
TO WARM ONES I'M CONSTANTLY BOUND;
THEY LEAD ME BACK TO A TIME LONG FORGOTTEN
WHERE THE FUTURE IS STILL TO BE FOUND.

CHORUS
SO, TO COCAINE LADIES IN PARADISE MAYBE
YOU KNOW THE WARMTH THAT I SEEK;
TENDER EMBRACES, THE CAT WHOSE TAIL CHASES
THE THING THAT I'M SEEKING TO REACH.
