Holy Diver Lyrics

Mhhh-hm-hmm
Yeah, yeah

Holy Diver
You’ve been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh, what’s becoming of me?
Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes but you know he’s clean
Oh, don’t you see what I mean?

Gotta get away
Holy Diver, yeah

Got shiny diamonds
Like the eyes of a cat in the black and blue
Something is coming for you, look out!
Race for the morning
You can hide in the sun ’till you see the light
Oh, we will pray, it’s all right

Gotta get away, get away

Between the velvet lies
There’s a truth that’s hard as steel, yeah
The vision never dies
Life’s a never-ending wheel, say

Holy Diver
You’re the star of the masquerade
No need to look so afraid
Jump, jump, jump on the tiger
You can feel his heart but you know he’s mean
Some light can never be seen, yeah!

Holy Diver
You’ve been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh, what’s becoming of me? No! No!
Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes but you know he’s clean
Oh, don’t you see what I mean?

Gotta get away, get away
Gotta get away, get away, yeah

Holy Diver, sole survivor
You’re the one who’s clean
Holy Diver, Holy Diver
There’s a cat in the blue coming after you, Holy Diver

Oh, Holy Diver
Yeah, alright
Get away, get away, get away
Holy Diver, Holy Diver
Oh, Holy Diver
Mhhh-hmmm-hmmm
