UNDER COOL COVER OF NIGHT

Unrecorded song performed Melanie in concert.

Under cool cover of night
I saw you try and read my mind
When I witnessed a change in your expression
While I was being there for other reasons

And I opened my big brown eyes
And I looked into your blues
You where wearing a disguise
But I saw right through

Under cool cover of night
Under false pretences
Under deep, cool, cover of night
Under cold, deep, cool cover of night
Under cold, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Under cold, oh yeah, oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Under cold, cover of night
Under false pretences

And last night in a revealing dream
I saw you dressed up like me
And I knew my love was another fatal projection
But in love and war deceptions still deception

And there I sat in a puddle of snivel and snot
On the bathroom floor, with a broken glass
In comes a six foot blond man, with three foot hair
Takes both my hands and says
"Melanie, do you believe in God?"
And I said "What's your last name?"

Under cool cover of night
Under false pretences
Under deep, cool, cover of night
Under cold, deep, cool cover of
Under cold, deep, cool cover of night
Under cold, oh yeah, oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Under cold, cool cover of night
Under false pretences
Under deep, cool, cover of night
