KINGDOM OF DESIRE (Danny "Kootch" Kortchmar) Toto You used to be on fire now you chill me to the bone We used to fly like angels now we're sinking like a stone You say you're trying to help me but that ain't the way it feels I think you're trying to kill me with those stiletto heels Paint the town black babe and let that pendulum swing I been stabbed in the back babe And if you don't love me, I'll never feel a thing And oh, one thing I know There's only one place left for me to go Going back to the kingdom of desire Going down to the valley of the gun I'm gonna stand too close to the fire I'm gonna fly too close to the sun They say the king of love sleeps on a velvet bed My sheets feel like sandpaper And my pillow feels like lead But as sure as Atlantis sank into the sea I'm sinking like a stone babe that's how it's got to be Paint the town black babe and let that pendulum swing I been stabbed in the back babe And if you don't love me I'll never feel a thing And oh, if I don't have you There's only one thing left for me to do Going back to the kingdom of desire Going down to the valley of the gun I'm gonna stand too close to the fire I'm gonna fly too close to the sun (Instrumental break) When you dig up God's little acre you lose all peace of mind You stare into the distance looking for a sign But that sign it never comes babe Your wishes won't come true You keep praying for the rain while the sun beats down on you And oh, one thing I know There's only one place left for me to go Going back to the kingdom of desire Going down to the valley of the gun I'm gonna stand too close to the fire I'm gonna fly too close to the sun (repeats 2x) I'm gonna fly too close to the sun, yeah I'm gonna fly too close to the sun
