Lying in the gutter
Looking at the stars
Listening to her breathing as she
Passes through these rusty bars
Free as any bird with wings as white
I am free when I am with her

Dancing down the hallway
Laughing at her chains
Others fade away it's calm how she remains
Strong as any storm and just as wild
I'm strong when I am with her

Yes I know,
They could separate us
This is true
They don't even hate us
It's just what they do
But if only in my dreams I will follow you
From the gutter to the stars

I will wash your stockings
Lace your corset tight
Waiting in the wings (No!)
On the stage with me-- Alright
When the curtain closes-- I'll be there
You won't go nowhere-- I'm home when I'm with you

With the slightest touch I'm an interval a square
Swinging round the lampposts
Breathing in clean air
Will they understand us?
Just be brave
I'm brave when I am with you

Yes I know,
They could separate us
This is true
They don't even hate us
It's just what they do
But if only in my dreams I will follow you
From the gutter to the stars

What is that over there?
It's a trap-- It's a stage
What is this in my hand
It's a scrap-- It's a page
From a playbill with both of our names
Side by side
As it should be
It could be
My darling just ---
It's a carpeted floor
It's a dressing room door
It's a crowd wanting more
I can see it now

Yes I know,
They could separate us (they could separate us)
This is true (this is true)
They don't even hate us (they don't even hate us)
It's just what they do (it's just what they do)
But if only in my dreams I will follow you
From the gutter to the stars (let me show you what living is)

They could separate us
This is true
They don't even hate us
It's just what they do
But if only in my dreams I will follow you
From the gutter to (from the gutter to) the stars
The stars
