Dark Star

Verse 1

The river was restless, the moon was obscured
A night filled with mystery, reality blurred
And thou my memory grows hazy, I'll never forget
The first time I saw her and the way that we met

Verse 2

Her physical pleasures, our forbidden thoughts
Created excitement, we dared not get caught
But, we'd risk the discovery, we'd meet anywhere
From the moment our eyes met we just didn't care

Chorus

Baby is a DARK STAR, forbidden fruit
Exotic flower, her love's absolute
My baby is a DARK STAR, please hear my plea
Unlawful knowledge, take pity on me

Verse 3

Who would have thought she'd possess me in so many ways
I try to recreate her each and every day
And, thou, I try to resist, you know, I've lost all control
There is no way to forget her, I'll let love take it's toll

Verse 4

In my dreams I remember how she moved like a spell
My need to be with her, oh, she knew me so well
With her mystical powers, a vision in black
My voice calls out to her but she's not coming back

Chorus 2

Baby is a DARK STAR. forbidden fruit
Exotic flower, her love's absolute
My baby is a DARK STAR, please hear my plea
Unlock the knowledge, her love holds the key
(INST)
My baby is a DARK STAR, yeah, yeah, yeaaaaaah, yeah, alright

Bridge

Sometimes at night when my dreams come alive
I feel her presence and I know I'll survive
I've known her pleasure, her lose brought the pain
But, when I was with her our love was not in vain

Chorus 1

Baby is a DARK STAR, forbidden fruit
Exotic flower, her loves absolute
My baby is a DARK STAR, please hear my plea
Unlawful knowledge, take pity on me

Chorus 2

Baby is a DARK STAR, forbidden fruit
Exotic flower, her love's absolute
My baby is a DARK STAR, please hear my plea
Unlock the knowledge, her love holds the key

Outro

My baby is a DARK STAR, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeaaaaaaaah, yeah
My baby is a DARK STAR.................
