original sin lyrics – meat loaf

refrain:
i’ve been looking for an original sin
one with a twist and a bit of a spin
and since i’ve done all of the old ones
till they’ve all been done in
now i’m just looking
then i’m gone with the wind
endlessly searching for an original sin…

you can dance forever
you got a fire in your feet
but will it ever be enough?
you know that it’ll never be enough
you can fly and never land
and never need to sleep
but will it ever be enough?
you know that it’ll never be enough…

it’s not enough to make the nightmares go away
(it’s) not enough to make the tears run dry
(it’s) not enough to live a little better every day

everything that they taught us
was nothing but lies
everything that they brought us
was nothing but bribes

but it’ll all be over now…
all i wanted was a piece of the night
i never got an equal share
when the stars are out of sight
and the moon is down
the natives are so restless tonight…

refrain:
i’ve been looking for an original sin
one with a twist and a bit of a spin
and since i’ve done all of the old ones
till they’ve all been done in
now i’m just looking
then i’m gone with the wind
endlessly searching for an original sin…

you can lose yourself in pleasure
till your body’s going numb
but will it ever be enough?
you know that it’ll never be enough
you can always take whatever
you conceivably could want
but will it ever be enough?
you know that it’ll never be enough…

it’s not enough to make the nightmares go away
(it’s) not enough to make the tears run dry
(it’s) not enough to live a little better every day

everything that they taught us
was nothing but lies
everything that they brought us
was nothing but bribes

but the lies are over now…
all i wanted was a piece of the night
it never had to get so dark
when the stars are out of sight
and the moon is down
the natives are so restless tonight…

i’ve been looking for an original sin
one with a twist and a bit of a spin
and since i’ve done all of the old ones
till they’ve all been done in
now i’m just looking
for an original sin…

i’ve been looking for teh ultimate crime
infinite victims, infinitesimal time
and i’m so very guilty for no reason or rhyme
(so) now i’m just looking
and killing some time
endlessly searching for the ultimate crime…

refrain:
i’ve been looking for an original sin
one with a twist and a bit of a spin
and since i’ve done all of the old ones
till they’ve all been done in
now i’m just looking
then i’m gone with the wind
endlessly searching for an original sin…

i’m applying for a license to thrill
going out on the edge – moving in for the kill
(and) they’ll be h*ll to pay someday
(so) put it all on the bill
cause we’ll always be paying
and paying until
we’re beyond expiration
with a license to thrill…(i’ve been looking for an original sin…)
