I'm coming out of the shadows
I'm coming into the light
I'm stepping out in the sunshine
'Cause it's the end of the night

Well if it pleases you, then that's what I will do
I will dance into your fire
And it pleases you, to have me sit for you
Like I'm a bird upon a wire
Girl, if it pleases you, then you may ridicule
My clothes and my funny hat
I'll bite my tongue 'til it bleeds and keep my lips sealed
'Cause I'm ever the diplomat

I'm coming out of the shadows
I'm coming into the light
I'm stepping out in the sunshine
'Cause it's the end of the night

You'll be so pleased to believe
That we're all in agreement
With all of the things that you think
You've got Elizabeth on one wall
Dressed red, white and blue
While your hired hands tend the sink

You love reminiscing, you always look back
You should look forward, or else you might fall
It seems the Emperor's got new clothes
While you never noticed at all

I'm coming out of the shadows
I'm coming into the light
I'm stepping out in the sunshine
'Cause it's the end of the night

Your man's like a mouse who will scurry about
To get you all of the things that you need
While I'm quite hungry with the taste of blood
But I can't bite the hand that feeds

And if it pleases you, that's what I will do
I will nod, smile, politely agree
And tip my hat to Mad Lizzie on the left hand side
Although I'm damn sure she doesn't know me

I'm coming out of the shadows
I'm coming into the light
I'm stepping out in the sunshine
'Cause it's the end of the night

I'm coming out of the shadows
I'm coming into the light
I'm stepping out in the sunshine
'Cause it's the end of the night
