The Divine Comedy - Absolute Power lyrics

You don't remember

You don't recall

The night we met or

What I was called

You're really sorry

For losing touch

Your memory fails you far too much

Don't say you'll take me

Some place to eat

Don't make a promise

You'll never keep

Don't say your number's

Not yours to give

Don't tell me I know how it is

But hey, it's okay

It's all right

'Cause you are a star tonight

You've got a hot date

So sleep tight

With your guitar tonight

You say you're so tired

Of this life

Well, get in your car and drive

With all the cameras

And the headlines

Screaming "You are a star tonight,

With absolute power tonight,"

And absolute power corrupts

Absolutely

Fame has no colour

Fame has no form

Fame cannot shelter

You from the storm

Fame casts no shadow

Fame makes no sound

Fame leaves no footprints in the ground

Fame can't create you

Fame cannot kill

Fame doesn't love you

Fame never will

Fame won't be there to

Kiss you goodnight

Fame doesn't care if you live or you die

[Instrumental]

But hey, it's okay

It's all right

'Cause you are a star tonight

You've got a hot date

So sleep tight

With your guitar tonight

You say you're so tired

Of this life

Well, get in your car and drive

With all the cameras

And the headlines

Screaming "You are a star tonight,

With absolute power tonight,"

And absolute power corrupts

Absolutely

Absolutely

Absolutely
