lyrics

Bring your candle and light my chandelier
You look just like Madonna and sound just like Shakespeare
With lace wrapped round your shoulder blades and diamonds on your ears
It's almost like we're living
In a sprawling marble building
There are comets in the ceiling
And all of us are feeling
Like we're royalty
Cuz now we see
The truth.

Gold-trimmed tables and lions made of jade
On your windowsill where sonny Rollins played
Then Chaucer brings his chariot and takes us all away
It's almost like we're living
And we're falling as we're singing
But our hearts for once aren't bleeding
So all of us are feeling
Like we're royalty
Cuz now we see
The truth.

There's rust behind this golden sheen
Although it seems immaculately clean
It's breaking down this beautiful machine
Too bad that none of us can see.

Unheard melodies soft pipes play on play on
Sing more songs of happy love thou bride of maddening dawns
When cities tumble to the see your beauty lingers on
It's almost like we're living
so we keep our fingers flitting
On the fate that's so appealing
And all of us are feeling
like we're royalty
Cuz now we see
The truth.
