And when we die we're gonna go dancing
At that nightclub in the sky

-- "Beautiful Losers"
Marc Almond
Song Lyrics


Beautiful Losers
from Open All Night

Here's to the bruised and the broken hearted
Here's to dear friends now departed
Here's to the lonely here's to the lost
Here's to those who love at a cost

Here's to the bitter and the reviled
Here's to the rejected child
Here's to those who don't have a hope
Here's to all of us in the same boat

Here's to you and here's to me
Only time's gonna set us free
Beautiful losers
You beautiful losers
Here's to you and here's to me
Here's to our philosophy
You beautiful losers
I'm gonna take all your bruises away
Away Away
We'll be winners at the end of the day

Here's to the talentless and the trying
Here's to those who are always crying
Here's to the fearful, here's to the faint
Here's to time that'll make you a saint
Here's to the broken, here's to the bent
Here's to you all heaven sent
Here's to those that are lost at sea
Here's to the time that'll set you free

Here's to you and here's to me
Only time's gonna set us free
Beautiful losers
You beautiful losers
Here's to you and here's to me
Here's to our philosophy
You beautiful losers
I'm gonna take all your bruises away
Away Away
We'll be winners at the end of the day

Here's to rain
Here's to thunder
Here's to those that are trodden under
Here's to darkness
Here's to death
Here's to each fading breath
Here's to sorrow
Here's to pain
Here's to heartache once again

Here's to you Here's to me
Only time's gonna set us free Free
Set us free
And when we die we're gonna go dancing
At that nightclub in the sky
When we die we're gonna go dancing
At that nightclub in the sky
You beautiful losers
Almost Diamonds
from Open All night

You kissed my grateful skin
And left a chain of bites and bruises
I'm sorry when you grin
Almost diamonds for the losers
I'll swim inside your tears
And wander through your rooms of silence
The motive crystal clear
Your tongue is love
And your heart is violence

Almost Diamonds, Scratched perfection
Almost diamonds, Tears in glycerine

I spied you kissing her
You faked your love
My broken brother
Everybody burn
Secrets spill and smiles are smothered
You have to roll the dice
Pain is two
And fire is sixes
Vengeance feels nice
I know the shine
Behind your tricks is

Almost diamonds, Scratched perfection
Almost diamonds, Tears in glycerine

Who would have thought
It would end like this
You gave a stranger
A dangerous kiss
Now your pretty eyes
Say these precious lies
We're just beautiful imitations

They were
Almost diamonds, Scratched perfection
Almost diamonds, Tears in glycerine

Catch our teardrops
As they fall
You know we nearly
Had it all
Fallen tears of glycerine
Gone is all of what we dream
Almost diamonds
Scratched perfection
Dark reflections
Love won't find us
Only in dreams
