Marc Almond — Champagne lyrics

A winter morning sun in new york
Champagne wakes and checks the time
Its hard to keep a cup of coffee down
When theres so much on your mind
Kicks a cockroach cross the bedroom floor
Checks the mirror grabs some clothes
Waits for the aching to subside
Where to find it no-one knows

And they say youre doing fine
Theyre just playing with your mind
And they never even know your name
But they all want you to shine
To glitter all the time
They all want a little taste of champagne

Takes the subway early afternoon
Downtown to eighth avenue
To the show palace theatre
Where champagne bares all
In a low rent nude revue
In the darkness shadow people
Stare at champagne glassy eyed
Takes the tips and imitates a smile
Waits for the aching to subside

And they say youre doing fine
Theyre just playing with your mind
And they never even know your name
But they all want you to shine
To glitter all the time
They all want a little taste of champagne

Later in a room
On a little glass pipe
Sweet dreams to help him
Forget his life
He leans on the wall
Rolls back his eyes
And says to all the aching goodbye
