AL KOOPER lyrics - Hollywood Vampire

AL KOOPER
"Hollywood Vampire"
(Kooper)

She moved across the room with sweet abandon
Talking with her everybody's eyes
And I was rooted to the spot where I stood standin'
And no one who was there could hear my cries
Tonight for sure she'll trap somebody's tenderness
And drink so very deeply of his soul
And though I am one whose words could put an end to this
Somehow I am under her control

Strange lady - skin that is pale as winter's snow
Strange lady - lips so blood red I'd swear you'd know
Behind so much beauty burns the fire
Of the curse upon us all
V A M P I R E

And I had no idea the night I found her
How hungry she had been to taste of man
And though words cannot describe our strange encounter
To look into my eyes you'd understand
I am not me - I'm timeless as a book now
A certain way that people just suspect
But anyone who takes a closer look now
Would see her evil mark upon my neck

Strange lady - skin that is pale as winter's snow
Strange lady - lips so blood red I'd swear you'd know
Behind so much beauty burns the fire
Of the curse upon us all
V A M P I R E
