"Shandi" as written by Paul Stanley and Vini Poncia....
I just can't pretend no more, I keep runnin' out of lies
Lovin' you is killin' me inside
Every time I find the words to end it, something in your eyes won't let it

Shandi, tonight must last us forever,
Forever we say goodnight and go home
But you know me very well, and I know you,
You can't tell me goodnight
(say goodnight)

We been holding on so tight, we're afraid to let it go
Shake it loose, we both could use the ride
Here's another mess I got myself in, and when you touch me you ain't helpin'

Say goodnight when we should say goodbye (say goodbye)

(Shandi, Shandi) Tonight must last us forever and ever
Forever we say goodnight and go home
Shandi, Shandi, tonight must last us forever

    General Commenti reckon that they're both having affairs, either with someone else or they ARE the affair....dya get wat i mean? the lines " I just can't pretend no more
    I keep runnin' out of lies" supports that, cept he wants to end it because its getting worse, but they both still love each other so much.

    General CommentIt's about a relationship Paul had with a girl he loved but for some condition couldn't be with and the girl didn't get the hint and kept loving him hence "When you touch me you ain't helpin" and he can't bring himself to hurt her, and i love this song i don't think KISS ever made a bad record and this was totally underated i mean songs like "Tomorrow" "Two Sides Of the Coin" "Naked City" "Is That You" all Klassiks...

    General CommentOne of my all time very favourite songs. So passionate but yet so tragic. Sounds like they are still in love but "flogging a dead horse" as the relationship is not going to get any better. He is reluctant to end it but knows it's the best thing for both of them.
    Been a Kiss fan for too many years to count but am always a sucker for their soppy stuff.
    If you haven't heard their concept album "Music from the Elder" check it out. Great album and very interesting but don't expect too much headbanging music although "I" is more their usual style.
