Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Gargoyles, standing, at the front of your gate

Trying to tell me to wait

But I can't wait to see you

So I run, like I'm mad, to heaven's door

I don't wanna be bad

I won't cheat you no more


Roses, Bel Air, take me there

I've been waiting to meet you

Palm trees, in the light, I can see, late at night

Darling I'm waiting to greet you

Come to me baby


Spotlight, bad baby, you've got a flare

For the violent-est kind of love anywhere out there

Mon amour, sweet child of mine

You're divine

Didn't anyone ever tell you

It's okay to shine?


Roses, Bel Air, take me there

I've been waiting to meet you

Palm trees, in the light, I can see, late at night

Darling I'm waiting to greet you

Come to me baby


Don't be afraid of me

Don't be ashamed

Walk in the way of my soft resurrection

Idol of roses, Iconic soul

I know your name

Lead me to war with your brilliant direction



Roses, Bel Air, take me there

I've been waiting to meet you

Palm trees, in the light, I can see, late at night

Darling I'm waiting to greet you

Come to me baby



Roses, Bel Air, take me there

I've been waiting to meet you

Geradine, sunshine, can you fade inside of mine

Darling I'm waiting to greet you

Come to me baby
