Circus strongman choked himself on the bearded lady's cape
Cinderella's a mockingbird, she came home from church too late
Now she can sing the song of poets, with an operatic range
But it was always your night babe, you look glamorous as fate

It carried, on it's hunchback, a crippled child's name
Skipping over rocks and stones, abandoning his cane
What a thing of beauty, time won't let it age
But it was always your night darling, you look glamorous as fate

A priest was making faulty claims of a love that bears no shame
"Father you've lost your sense again, that's like a week without the days"
So he pulled out his heart, just to prove us wrong before going on his way
But it was always your night honey, you look glamorous as faith

The candles begged the chains to break, the chants tried hard to speak
Battle cries are worthless they don't practice what they preach
The net was wound around the noose and the knife is at it's peak
But it was always your night baby, you look glamorous as me

The audience dressed to the nines, the curtain cloaked the stage
Brando was far beyond himself Welles said "go and break a leg"
Words could not describe the scene, see, they were too afraid
But it was always your night babe, you look glamorous as fate

Shots were filed teeth were pulled, cause was given blame
Reason turned against itself and fell flat upon it's face
My father's thoughts on freedom read "The sky is still a cage"
But it was always your night darling, you look glamorous as fate

You've always been embarrassed by the courage of embrace
I know it's hard not to hurt yourself but that's just the risk you take
Now I should go and shut my mouth before I give too much away
But it was always your night honey, you look glamorous as faith

The people said that they would give you everything you need
All you had to do in turn was pack your things and leave
I guess this calls for a fond farewell, well there's no time to left to grieve
But it was always your night baby you look glamorous as me
It was always our night baby...
