Lyrics:

Forbidden lovers
We hid our hearts beneath the stars
Under the covers
In midnight rooms and shining cars

I gladly came
To taste your pain
A love insane on a crazy night
Such a crazy night...

Forbidden lovers
A secret message on the 'phone
Heaven's above us
And Hell's below, so I am told

Beware the shame
Or play the game
It's all the same when you sell your soul
To a love so bold...

Oh, will you be my secret lover
My tragic romance in the rain
And we will sail the earth together
For you can help me claim my fame...

Wake up in a strange bed...
Pearly white and proud red...
Photograph my wild head
Shoot me to the stars...
Shoot me to the stars...

Forbidden lovers
We dance in silence through the void
There are no others
For only darkness knows the joys

At your command
An all night stand
A pleasure grand and a deep delight
And a deep delight...

Forbidden lovers
We cruise the highways of desire
Our presence hovers
Above your head and climbing higher

We touched the sky
With wings so wide
An angel tide on a demon shore
On a demon shore...

Oh, will you be my secret lover
My tragic romance in the rain
And we will sail the earth together
For you can help me claim my fame...

Wake up in a strange bed...
Pearly white and proud red...
Photograph my wild head
Shoot me to the stars...
Shoot me to the stars...
