Again, this is in between the live and studio versions.

so long to do this. )*

Lyrics:

She's a maid in heaven
He's a knight on the tiles
A bat out of hell, oh well!
It's just a question of style...

It's a time for giving
In the two-star hotel 
Where breakfast in bed, per head
Is just the price of a smile...

I know 
It's not easy to live this way
Just an hour and a fleeting kiss 
'til the morning.

Silent night of wonders
Day breaks through the door
So broken and torn, reborn
Two shadows thrown on the floor.

Hold me now go lightly
Take the rough with the smooth
A token of love, my love
Was made in heaven for you.
