Testo
It was on a street so evil
So bad that even hell disowned it
Every single step was trouble
For the fool who stumbled on it

Eyes within the dark were watching
I felt the sudden chill of danger
Something told me keep on walking
Told me I should not have come there

Baby, ‘cause you cut me like a knife
Without your love in my life
Alone I walk in the night
’Cause I just can’t stop this feelin’
It’s torture, it’s torture, it’s torture

She was up a stair to nowhere
A room forever I’ll remember
She stared as though I should have known her
Tell me what’s your pain or pleasure

Every little thing you find here
Is simply for the thrill you’re after
Loneliness or hearts of fire
I am here to serve all masters

She said reality is a knife
When there’s no love in your life
And merciful is the night
When you just can’t stop this feeling
It’s torture, it’s torture, it’s torture

And I still can’t find the meaning, no no no
Of the face I keep on seeing
Was she real or am I dreaming
Did the sound of your name
Turn a wheel, start the flame in me

Baby, ‘cause you cut me like a knife
Without your love in my life
Alone I walk in the night
And I just can’t stop this feelin’
It’s torture, it’s torture, it’s torture

It’s torture
It’s torture
It’s torture
