Lady Lazarus - Manic Street Preachers

Somewhere, on the other side of this wide night
And the distance between us
I am thinking of you
The room is turning slowly away from the moon
This is pleasurable
Or shall I cross that out and say it is sad?
(Carol Ann Duffy, 'Words, Wide Night')

You said the feeling, it made you free
But now you've swapped sides with the enemy

So use the power that you have gained
Give it back and don't be afraid
Keep those demons at bay
Don't give up on forever
You could make it better

Lady Lazarus, you've risen and there's no way back
Lady Lazarus, you're stranded till the sky turns black

You said that you laughed so much that you cried
You said so much more than you denied

So you use the power that you have gained
Give it back and don't be afraid
Keep those demons at bay
Don't give up on forever
You could make it better

Lady Lazarus, you've risen and there's no way back
Lady Lazarus, you're stranded till the sky turns black

You said that you laughed so much that you cried
You said so much more than you denied

So use the power that you have gained
Give it back and give up your fame
Keep those demons at bay
Don't give up on forever
You can make it better

Lady Lazarus, you've risen and there's no way back
Lady Lazarus, you're stranded till the sky turns black

You said so much more than you denied
You secretly wish you'd been crucified

You said so much more than you denied
You secretly wish you'd been crucified, crucified, crucified
