Laura Branigan - “Self Control”
Self Control (1984) by Laura Branigan (1957 to 2004). She died of undiagnosed cerebral aneurysm (brain blood vessel ballooning) in her sleep.
Oh, the night is my world City light painted girl In the day nothing matters It's the night time that flatters In the night, no control Through the wall something's breaking Wearing white as you're walkin' Down the street of my soul You take my self, you take my self control You got me livin' only for the night Before the morning comes, the story's told You take my self, you take my self control Another night, another day goes by I never stop myself to wonder why You help me to forget to play my role You take my self, you take my self control I, I live among the creatures of the night I haven't got the will to try and fight Against a new tomorrow, so I guess I'll just believe it That tomorrow never comes [never knows] A safe night, I'm living in the forest of my dream I know the night is not as it would seem I must believe in something, so I'll make myself believe it That this night will never go Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
This song reminds me of Bonnie Tyler's Total Eclipse of the Heart.
