E​-​Cabaret / When the Morning Comes

from by Eddie Japan

lyrics

Eschew your obligations
Screw the ramifications
Don’t fall for an early bed
Sooner or later you might be dead
What good is responsibility
if you can’t shirk it occasionally?
Tell the boss to get bent
you’ll find some way to pay the rent

Put down the tablet, the remote and the phone
Come hear the music play
Come hear the music play

The night ‘aint what it used to be
we’ve sold it out entirely
The couch is no substitute
for a bit of champagne and a tailored suit
Who cares what the next day holds
you’ll learn as it all unfolds
The night sparkles like a gem
Your life looks very different at 3am

C’mon, now people stop messing around
Don’t let your life slip away
C’mon, now people stop messing around
Don’t let your life slip away

Oh life is a horror show
but it doesn’t have to be quite so
Stop, with all those plans
Oh, come on now
and take my hand
Oh life is a horror show
but it doesn’t have to be quite so
Stop, don’t behave
O c’mon now get a bit depraved

It’s 5 am
and I’m creeping in
after another show
Where it all leads
and where it might end
well it’s hard to know
High on self deception
in love with my reflection
denial is the sweetest drug
As night gives way
to the longest day
Oh, I still have a pretty good time

Where will I be
oh, when the morning comes
Where will I be
oh, when the morning comes

Middle-age lover
meet under me under the covers
It’s never been so sweet
But still I’m conflicted
because it’s age restricted
so we’re oh so discreet
All this desire
is like wildfire
don’t want to put it out
I maintain
that all is pain
But I still have a pretty good time

Where will I be
oh, when the morning comes
Where will I be
oh, when the morning comes

".. a contagious attitude of doing it up, and doing it up right that you can hear in the carnival swirls of ultra-melodic pop, latin-flavored bravado and cinematic ‘70s UK rock."
