She lays in bed at night and that is when I make my call
But when she stares at me, she can't see nothin' at all
Because you see, I can't take no shape or form
It's been three long years since I've been gone

I can't get used to purgatory, you know it really makes me cry
I'll never know the reason why I had to go
Oh, oh, I'm crying
Oh, oh, oh, deep inside of me
Oh, oh, oh, can't you see me?
Ah, ah, ah, can't you see me?

I'm looking forward to her spirit coming over to me
I feel so tempted to bring her on over to see
Just what it's Like to be hanging on the other side
I feel so lonely, it's a long time since I died

I try to show her that she's never gonna be alone
Because my spirit is imprisoned in a twilight zone
Oh, oh, I'm crying
Oh, oh, oh, deep inside of me
Oh, oh, oh, can't you hear me?
Ah, ah, ah, can't you see me?

    General CommentAnother great Di'Anno song,
    usually unappreciated by later fans.

    It shares the same title as many other songs
    released in the early 80's with the TV show name.

    It also mentions Purgatory,
    another song on the same Killers album.

    General CommentPretty simple lyrically, but a great song about a ghost longing for his living lover who can't see or hear him. He's not a spirit at rest (he's in the twilight zone), because he can't let go of her and wants her to join him in death.

    General CommentSo many things on the album cover of this song. First there is a grim reaper on the card that Charlotte is holding. The same reaper is outside her window. There is a picture of Eddie with text that says "To Charlotte, Love Eddie". and behind the picture is what looks like an evil Mickey Mouse waving at you
