MY OWN VERSION OF YOU












MY OWN VERSION OF YOU









All through the summers into January

Iíve been visiting morgues and monasteries




Lookiní for the necessary body parts

Limbs and livers and brains and hearts




Iíll bring someone to life - itís what I'm gonna do

I wanna create my own version of you




Well it must be the winter of my discontent

I wish youíd have taken me with you wherever you went




They talk all night and they talk all day

Not for a minute do I believe anything they say




Iím going to bring someone to life - someone Iíve never seen

You know what I mean - you know exactly what I mean




Iíll take the Scarface Pacino and the Godfather Brando

Mix it up in a tank and get a robot commando




If I do it up right and put the head on straight

Iíll be saved by the creature that I create




Iíll get blood from a cactus - gunpowder from ice

I donít gamble with cards and I donít shoot no dice




Can you look at my face with your sightless eye

Can you cross your heart and hope to die




Iíll bring someone to life - someone for real

Someone who feels the way that I feel




I study Sanskrit and Arabic to improve my mind

I want to do things for the benefit of all mankind




I say to the willow tree - donít weep for me

Iím saying to hell to all things that used to be




Well I get into trouble - then I hit the wall

No place to run - no place at all




I pick a number between a-one and two

And I ask myself what would Julius Caesar do




I wanna bring someone to life in more ways than one

Donít matter how long it takes - itíll be done when itís done




Iím gonna make you play the piano like Leon Russell

Like Liberace - like St. John the Apostle




Iíll play every number that I can play

Iíll see you maybe on judgment day




After midnight if you still want to meet

Iíll be at the Black Horse tavern on Armageddon street




Two doors down - not that far to walk

Iíll hear your footsteps - you wonít have to knock




Iíll bring someone to life - balance the scales

Iím not gonna get involved in any insignificant details




You can bring it to St Peter - you can bring it to Jerome

You can bring it all the way over - bring it all the way home




Bring it to the corner where the children play

You can bring it to me on a silver tray




Iíll bring someone to life - spare no expense

Do it with decency and common sense




Can you tell me what it means to be or not to be

You wonít get away with fooliní me




Can you help me walk that moonlight mile

Can you give me the blessings of your smile




Iíll bring someone to life - use all of my powers

Do it in the dark - in the wee small hours




I can see the history of the whole human race

Itís all right there - itís carved into your face




Should I break it all down - should I fall on my knees

Is there light at the end of the tunnel - can you tell me please




Stand over there by the cypress tree

Where the Trojan women and children were sold into slavery




Long before the first crusade

Way back before England or America were made




Step right into the burning hell

Where some of the best known enemies of mankind dwell




Mr Freud with his dreams - Mr Marx with his axe

See the rawhide lash rip the skin from their backs




Got the right spirit - you can feel it you can hear it

You got what they call the immortal spirit




You can feel it all night - you can feel it in the morní

It creeps in your body the day you were born




One strike of lightning is all that I need

And a blast of electricity that runs at top speed




Show me your ribs - Iíll stick in the knife

Gonna jump start my creation to life




I wanna bring someone to life - turn back the years

Do it with laughter and do it with tears
