Mmm...

Promenade
Underneath the light of Esplanade
A half-block off Decatur, in the shade
Of the weeping willow tree
But if someone asks
About the moonlight of a night-long cast
Never leave yourself within his grasp
So you don't become his prey

Cause here, in New Orleans, life and death intersect
Pathways from hell into paradise, disconnect
(Stay with me) and I will see you through this
(Stay with me) How did we both come to this?
(Stay with me) I pray the night won't end too soon
I love this Mardi Gras by moonlight

In this town
Dead refuse to be kept underground
So, they coexist in sight and sound
Walking next to you and me

Darkness falls over, assembles a slight hushing
Trapped in your innocence, careful who you're trusting
(Stay with me) and I will help to hide you
(Stay with me) Embrace the light inside you
(Stay with me) Let's escape from me and you
God, love the Mardi Gras by moonlight
God, love
God, love

Drawn up and tied down, relaxing, inject slowly
Live for the rush of your touch when you're below me
(Stay with me) As we fall asunder
(Stay with me) Come satisfy my hunger
(Stay with me) I pray the night won't end too soon
Goad, save this Mardi Gras by moonlight
(God, save the Mardi Gras by moonlight)
God, save the Mardi Gras by moonlight
