lyrics

L Y R I C S

Walking down the street,
Away from where he's no one.
Street light on his eyes,
Glows the world of Aima.

No one will see
the truth under the makeup
The sequins will shine
The queen is back tonight

He's the queen, queen of Chinatown
Everyone loves Aima at night
He's the queen, queen of Chinatown
Happiness until the lights go on

High heels in his hands,
Street lights his last companions.
Boys down the street,
Shouting him some loving.

As the boys laugh and their hands hunt Aima down
Fast the blade goes
Aima's life fades away, fades away
But he smiles, and, sings

He's the queen, queen of Chinatown
Everyone loves Aima at night
He's the queen, queen of Chinatown
Happiness until the lights go out, out, out

Always do what you wanna do
Always did what he wanted to

He's the queen, queen of Chinatown
He's the queen, queen of Chinatown
