Look! Look... Look...
She lies awash in beauty
Afloat in a river of crystal
Among waves of turquoise that sparkle like...
Diamonds!
Every precious jewel is a memento
A memento mori
A souvenir of death!
No! Not a memento mori
A memento vitae
A memento of life
A many-sided mirror
A prism
A prism for rainbows
Rainbow, rainbow
Remember O' Catwoman that thou art dust
No! Not dust!
Remember that you're going to live...To live!
Because you must
You must, you must...

Too dangerous to wear
Too beautiful to sell
A glinting glimpse of heaven
In the midst of all this hell

Memento mori
Grab everything you can
You can lose it all so suddenly
To the frozen face of death

Memento vitae
Just grasp it in your hand
You've got to live in beauteous life
A jewel, a heartbeat, a breath

Memento mori
Grab everything you can
They'll take it all away from you
You're left alone, bereft

Memento vitae
Just clutch it in your hand
You can take it back, steal life away from death
Your greatest theft

And I need all the love I can get
And I need all the love that I can't get to
I need all the love I can get
And I need all the love that I can't get too...

The wind is sharp, it makes me shiver
The night's a promise but will it deliver
The nothingness surrounds me, it makes me so reflective
I've got nine lives, just like they said, and all of them defective!

Forever I'll be collecting
Jewels and regrets
Forever is such a long long time
And most of it hasn't even happened yet

And I need all the love I can get
And I need all the love that I can't get to
And I need all the love I can get
And I need all the love that I can't get too...

(Instrumental)

And I need all the love I can get
And I need all the love that I can't get to
And I need all the love I can get
And I need all the love that I can't get too...

And I need all the love I can get
And I need all the love that I can't get to
And I need all the love I can get
And I need all the love that I can't get too

The wind is sharp and it makes me shiver
The night's a promise but will it deliver
At times like this I'm so reflective
I've got nine lives and they're all defective!

Too dangerous to wear
Too beautiful to sell
A glinting glimpse of heaven
In the midst of all this hell

Forever I'll be collecting
Precious jewels and regrets
Forever is such a long long time
And most of it hasn't even happened yet...
