Different Worlds

Album: Wings of Heaven (1988)
  • On narrow streets
    Old men lie
    In the doorway sleeping
    While working girls
    Comb their hair
    See the young men peeping

    Different worlds
    Only a walk across the street
    Different worlds
    You never know what you might meet

    No satin sheets on your bed tonight
    How you feeling
    While running feet always disappear
    >From sirens screaming

    Different worlds
    Only a walk across the street
    Different worlds
    You never know what you might meet

    Some of us take what we want
    Some of us take what we need
    Some of us break
    Some of us bleed

    Where velvet gloves and your diamond rings
    Lose their meanings
    For those who we love if they really care
    Keep on dreaming
    Dream on

    Different worlds
    Only a walk across the street
    Different worlds
    You never know what you might meet

    Some of us take what we want
    Some of us take what we need
    Some of us break
    Some of us bleed
