[Me] Friday night, I had a few
There she was, out of the blue
Thunderstruck, nailed to the floor
I couldn’t move, couldn’t talk anymore
[Love] Of all these guys, it’s you she desires
Secretly her heart is on fire
Waiting for you to ask her to dance
Go ahead, make your move…now’s your chance

[Passion & Pride CHORUS] [Passion] Do it right, do it right, we ain’t got all night
Do it now, do it now, I think you know how
[Pride] Let it out, let it out, now don’t mess about
Let her in, let her in, let the party begin!

[Me] There I was, nervous and shy
Struck with awe as I caught her eye
I mustered up courage and walked her way
Figuring out what to do, what to say
[Love] Her heart sings as she sees you come near
The music fades, the crowd disappears
She weeps in silence as you pass her by,
and she’s wondering why…oh why
[Passion & Pride CHORUS]

[Agony CHORUS] Remember your father? Well, you’re just like him
Nothing but violence and fury within
Remember your mother, so lonely and sad?
This will be her fate if you treat her as bad

[Fear] You’re afraid she might turn you down
All your hopes dashed to the ground
Nobody loved you, nobody will
Why should you even try? But still…
[Me] Friday night, I had a few [Wife] There was no need to talk
[Me] There she was, out of the blue [Wife] We just started to walk
[Me] Hand in hand, we took the floor [Wife] And we danced, and we danced, and we danced
[Me] I could move, I could talk…even more…
[Passion & Pride CHORUS] [Agony CHORUS] [x2]
[Passion & Pride CHORUS]

    General CommentMeaning is obvious because it's a story in itself. "metal opera" I guess, as opposed to a "rock opera"... ("prog opera"?) The chorus, Passion and Pride, strikes me with the harmony of their two voices. Beautiful.

    General Commentyep the passion and pride are really powerful. I also like the tendernes of the 'love' and use of lyrics "her heart sings..", and the agony part as well. Great song all in all.
