lady do or die lyrics – billy idol

what it takes,
it takes a dog to cry,
what it takes,
a boy must die,
what it takes sometime,
before midnight,
what it takes,
it takes a life

‘cos i was o’ so young,
misshaped before my time,
ride metallica monsters,
and there’s mud in your eye,
for lady do or die

it makes a woman bleed,
can’t give her all her needs,
close the door before you leave,
can almost hear her breath,
it’s a shame “what you’ve become”,
the things i do for love,
on this road tonight,
looking for her candlelight,
for lady do or die,
for lady do or die

tumbleweed, p*ssing by,
train whistle start to cry,
more people start to die,
i don’t know why,
god knows why

i wonder what it takes,
to free someone,
i wonder what it takes,
free you from your prison

kings of the road keep travelin’ on,
every mile a ragged woe,
kings on the road keep smiling on,
play the guitar and sing the blues and cry,
play the guitar and sing the blues and cry,
play the guitar and sing the blues and cry

for lady do or die,
for lady do or die,
for lady do or die,
for lady do or die

for lady do or die,
play the blues and cry,
for lady do or die,
play the guitar,
for lady do or die,
sing, sing the blues and cry,
for lady do or die…
