  • She walks in beauty like the night
    Discarding her clothes in the plastic flowers
    Pornographic and tragic in black and white
    My Marilyn come to my slum for an hour
    I'm aching to see my heroine
    I'm aching been dying for hours and hours

    She walks in the beauty of a magazine
    Complicating the boys in the office towers
    Rafaella or Della the silent dream
    My Marilyn come to my slum for an hour

    I'm aching to see my heroine
    I'm aching been dying for hours and hours,
    Been dying for hours and hours

    She walks in beauty like the night

    Hypnotizing the silence with her powers
    Armageddon is bedding this picture alright
    My Marilyn come to slum for an hour

    I'm aching to see my heroine
    Aching, been dying for hours and hours
    I'm 18, I need my heroines
    Aching, been dying for hours
    Oh and I'm never alone now
    Now I'm with her Writer/s: BERNARD BUTLER, BRETT ANDERSON
