"Julia" as written by Tim Rice and Rick Wakeman....
Run - heart in my mouth
Run so hard that it beats
and repeats in my head like a gun
East - west, north and south
No direction to go
but I know that the ending's begun

I know I made a mistake coming here again
But I had to remind myself of where and
when

We threw off our chains
Hid ourselves in ourselves from the world
and its organised hell
Now - nothing remains
Barely a trace of the place where I knew
him well

Down
Down he said get on the floor
And stay well away from the door
Or someone will see us for sure
And I
Loved him like no-one before
Princess madonna and whore
Kept comig back for more

Run - goodness know where
I'm a poor refugee
and I might as well be on the moon

Still why should I care?
I had it all in one grand afternoon

Down
Down he said get on the floor
And stay well away from the door
Or someone will see us for sure
And I
Loved him like no-one before
Princess madonna and whore
Kept comig back for more

I
Feeling the death and decay
Didn't expect him to stay
Stay with me Julia stay
But I
Only remember that day
As ruler of all I survey
And nothing can take that away

    General CommentThey're not historical. As far as I know, it's from Rick Wakeman's album about 1984. Julia is one of the characters in that book. (I'm not totally certain what this is from, though...)
