    işte sözleri

    i was cleopatra, i was young and an actress
    when you knelt by my mattress, and asked for my hand
    but i was sad you asked it, as i laid in a black dress
    with my father in a casket, i had no plans, yeah

    and i left the footprints, the mud stained on the carpet
    and it hardened like my heart did when you left town
    but i must admit it, that i would marry you in an instant
    damn your wife, i'd be your mistress just to have you around

    but i was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
    and when i die alone, when i die alone, when i die i'll be on time

    while the church discouraged, any lust that burned within me
    yes my flesh, it was my currency, but i held true
    so i drive a taxi, and the traffic distracts me
    from the strangers in my backseat, they remind me of you

    but i was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
    and when i die alone, when i die alone, when i die i'll be on time

    and the only gifts from my lord were a birth and a divorce
    but i've read this script and the costume fits, so i'll play my part

    i was cleopatra, i was taller than the rafters
    but that's all in the past love, gone with the wind
    now a nurse in white shoes leads me back to my guestroom
    it's a bed and a bathroom
    and a place for the end

    i won't be late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
    and when i die alone, when i die alone, when i die i'll be on time
