"Crossfire", Brandon Flowers

Brandon Flowers, of course, is that dude from The Killers, in case you recognized his voice but not why you recognized it.

This song has been in my head off and on since I first heard it, and has quietly but firmly attached itself to The Demon Mirror, due to the Heaven vs. Hell theme that they've both got going on. (Uh, perhaps that won't make sense to anyone outside my head -- it's one of the books I'm writing.)

Lyrics, of perhaps dubious quality:

There's a still(?) in the street outside your window
And you're keeping secrets on your pillow
Let me inside, no cause for alarm
I promise tonight not to do you harm
Yeah I promise you babe, I won't do no harm

And we're caught up in the crossfire
Of heaven and hell
And we're searching for shelter
Lay your body down
Lay your body down
Lay your body down

Watching you dress as you turn down the lights
I forget all about the storm outside
Dark clouds roll their way over town
Heartache and pain came pouring down
Like hail, sleet and rain yeah they're handing it out

We're caught up in the crossfire
Of heaven and hell
And we're searching for shelter
Lay your body down
Lay your body down
Lay your body down

Lay your body down
Lay your body down
Lay your body down

Tell the devil that he can go back from where he came
His fiery arrows drew their bead in vain
And when the hardest part is over we'll be here
And our dreams will break the boundaries of our fear
The boundaries of our fear

Lay your body down
Lay your body down
Lay your body down

Lay your body down
Lay your body down
Lay your body down
