LyricsEdit

The below lyrics are from Jim Steinman's draft script. The audition tape contains slightly different lyrics.

Walkin' down by the riverside
I can hear those wild dogs barking
And I know that it's cold outside
And I just can't keep from walkin'

You've got to come to me now
Let your hair hang heavy and low
You've got to come to me now
'Cause you don't have anywhere left to go

Walkin' down by the riverside
I can hear those vultures calling
And I know that it's cold outside
And I just can't keep from falling

You've got to come to me now
Let the night hang heavy and low
You've got to come to me now
'Cause you don't have anywhere left to go

You've got to love me with the sun in your eyes
You've got to love me with the sun in your eyes
You've got to love me with the sun in your eyes
Until the day that you go blind
Until the day that you go blind

I can't feel your body
Tell me does it flow anymore
And can I go with the hungry tide

Where have the mountains gone to
Why is the sky so low
Is anything left on the other side?

I can't touch my legs now
My eyes are frozen still
And I can't tell if I'm alive

I don't need your nightmares
And I don't need your smiles
And I don't have to hear your song

You've got to fly in the morning
You've got to fly at night
'Cause I've been waitin' so damn long

You've got to love me with the sun in your eyes
You've got to love me with the sun in your eyes
You've got to love me with the sun in your eyes
Until the day that you go blind
Until the day that you go blind
Until the day we both go blind

You can be free from questions why
You can be free from questions why
You're gonna have to die and die
You're gonna have to die again and again
Until you learn how to live
We're gonna take from you 'til you learn how to give

You're gonna have to die and die and die and die and die and die
Again and again until you learn how to live
We're gonna take from you 'til you learn how to give
