chained armor and the radio queen/caged bird, scott richard


until the night turns into day


way back when
things were pretty jamming,
the nights were cool and the bands were
cramming down the beats in the back rooms

where the whiskey was poured
and the dance floor
was lit up by the movement
of darting dancing feet
banging out the beats and turning up the heat

in the darkness
in the darkness
in the darkness
until the night turns into day.
until the night turns into day.





yeah, ella was a singer in a dark cafe,
singing for the men who worked all day.

and some will say that she was just a girl
with a crazy big heart to play

and some will say that she was just a girl
with a crazy big debt to pay --

snorting cocaine and drinking champagne

in the darkness
in the darkness
in the darkness
until the night turns into day
until the night turns into day





and i guess we know now
why the caged bird sings,
snorts and drinks to forget about things.
cuz there's certain kinda songs that don't need explainin'
and the night falls onto words,
the night falls onto words
but they won't be complainin'
see we're ALL used to sayin' --



she’s a radio queen
she's a radio queen

not a caged bird,
not a caged bird.

until the night turns into day.
until the night turns into day
in the darkness,
in the darkness,
in the darkness.
