Tonite's the nite
Open your door and I'll come inside
Don't be afraid, it will be alright
I will change your whole life tonite
And you're so beautiful
Too beautiful for this dead-end world
I'm taking you to a better place
Oh, far away from this stupid race

Oh, come with me forever
And ever, oh please
Come with me forever
No don't let me down
Oh, don't make me cry
Lie in my arms and be mine tonite
Do it!

Oh, now's the time
I'll climb the stairs and I'll make you mine
Don't try to hide there's nowhere to go
I want your body and I want your soul

Oh, come with me forever
And ever, oh please
Come with me forever
No don't let me down
Oh, don't make me cry
Lie in my arms and be mine tonite

And now see the sun
And how bright it shines
You can have it all
If you stay tonite
No don't walk away
No don't say goodbye
Lie in my arms and be mine tonite

Oh did I tell you
there was no need to be afraid?
Oh, you've got such a beautiful body
Oh, you'll make such a beautiful body

I stalk these yellow-lit cul-de-sacs at nite
You hear my footstep on your bedroom stair
And I will take the first born in every house in town
I'll take your sisters and I'll lay them down
I'll lay them down tonite, now!

I'll take your mother
And your father as he lies in bed at nite
And your brother, who is busy wasting time
Yeah, I'll take them all now!

La la la
La la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la

Here we go now

Oh, the sun that shines through your window in the morning
And the wind that blows the blossom from the trees
And those girls who cross their legs
They all stop dead when I come into town!

    General CommentThis great is a big song by PULP, though not as known as it deserves.
    To me this is pretty clear : this is the description of the first try by a young person of a dangerous drug : "I will change your whole life tonite" to escape a sort of bad feeling/depression "Too beautiful for this dead-end world" with big promises "I'm taking you to a better place". Death/drugs will soon embrace the victim that wont be able to escape "Don't try to hide there's nowhere to go
    I want your body and I want your soul" and it is taking its toll on all the relatives...
