10 Golden Feeling Demo 1 lyrics

I posted Golden Feeling Demo 1 video on youtube and, as I always do, included lyrics in the commentary. Some lyrics are the same as in the original version but there is a lot of new ones that can't be found anywhere I know. I understood some of the lyrics myself but still there're empty places here and there. Any help with unknown lyrics or the misheard ones would be appreciated. Here are the lyrics:

The streets are open wide for a brand new adventure
The asphalt flashes in the light
And the black leathered knights crawling out of their basements
And handing the tickets for the night, for the night
Gonna stay for a while, 'cause there's no chance to hide
Your money runs out for the film, for the film
Here's the freedom of life, there's no time for regrets
Through the light, pushing through, through the light
(?)

Though the place's so crowded
You feel so alone, 'cause you're eye to eye with him
And you know he will take you
He's got nothing to lose and there's no way for you to win
Desperados in love won't kill this sweet dove
For nugget of fleeting bliss
Come on, come on, you can't escape
The bleeding bullet of a kiss

Here comes that golden feeling
It's shining in your eyes
We're always going on and on
Right from that day they start to shine

Since you're up the hill, it feels like a sin
'cause it tastes much too sweet, it's much too sweet
(?)
And you claim what you want, you will need to go
When it's time that you leave this press
But now you 'll just die in a road
In an everlasting kiss, everlasting

C'mon, c'mon, you can't escape
The fleeting bullet of a kiss

Here comes that golden feeling
It's shining in your eyes
We're always going on and on
Right from that day they start to shine

It's a new situation
The start of a game, you've already won the prize
He's a lunatic dancer
Who's not aware that he's skating on thin ice
There's no turning back
No time for regrets, you should've known better, though
Another chance to fall in love
Another chance to turn you on
Another chance - to turn you on

Here comes that golden feeling
It's shining in your eyes
We're always going on and on
Right from that day they start to shine

I've got all of these lyrics, and "It's a new situation" part wasn't in the demo. I'm missing some other parts that were in the demo version only.

I once tried to decipher those unwritten lyrics, but as I'm not a native I usually make up funny expressions ;)
Here is my attempt on this :
http://www.alphaville.org/showthread...grooves&page=2

Since you're up with her it feels like a sip
B'cause the taste is much too sweet, is much too sweet
And the massive chaos of the city grooves
It's where abandon [...] to fear, it's only a flick
And you [...] a world, you worry the call at it some but you leave its the rest (?)
No doubt you're just for the diamond road in a neverlasting kiss, neverlasting.

Your help is welcome....

You got some words better than me, I tried to choose the best possible words, and now it would look like this:

The streets are open wide for a brand new adventure
The asphalt flashes in the light
And the black leathered knights crawling out of their basements
And handing the tickets for the night, for the night
Gonna stay for a while, 'cause there's no chance to hide
Lay your body right down for the thrill, for the thrill
You are free, you're alive, there's no time for regrets
You're alive, push the door, you're alive
And heading for the killer, for the kill

Though the place's so crowded
You feel so alone, 'cause you're eye to eye with him
And you know he will take you
He's got nothing to lose and there's no way for you to win
Desperados in love won't kill this sweet dove
For nugget of fleeting bliss
Come on, come on, you can't escape
The bleeding bullet of a kiss

Here comes that golden feeling
It's shining in your eyes
We're always going on and on
Right from that day they start to shine

Since you're up with her, it feels like a sin
'cause the taste is much too sweet, it's much too sweet
And the massive chaos of the city moves
It's where (?), it's only a flick
And you claim what you want, you will need to go
When it's time that you leave this to rest
No doubt you're just for diamond road
In an everlasting kiss, everlasting

Great work !
not sure about some words though, like sin or moves, because when using headphones I heard different consonants. As always in such cases, we would need several inputs to make sure we are on the right track.

Here's my best stab at the lyrics. I've put my changes in CAPS. Pretty confident in most of them... but don't ask me what a "fathom boy" is!


The streets are open wide for a brand new adventure
The asphalt flashes in the light
And the black leathered PUNKS crawling out of the basement
And hand in the tickets for the night, for the night
Gonna stay for a while, 'cause there's no chance to hide
Lay your MONEY right down for the thrill, for the thrill
You are free, you're alive and there's no time for regrets
You're alive, push the door, you're alive
And YOU HIT THE THRILL RIDE (or RIGHT?) for the kill

Though the place is so crowded
You feel so alone, 'cause you're eye to eye with him
And you know he will take you
He's got nothing to lose and there's no way for you to win
Desperados in love won't kill this sweet dove
For a nugget of fleeting bliss
Come on, come on, you can't escape
The bleeding bullet of a kiss

Here comes that golden feeling
It's shining in your eyes
We're always going on and on
Right from that day they start to shine

Since you're up with her, it feels like a sin
'cause the taste is much too sweet, it's much too sweet
And the MASSIVE DECAY of the city moves
It's where A FATHOM BOY'S ONLY A FLING, it's only a FLING
AND YOU CLAIM ALL ALONG YOU WON'T EVEN CALL
AND ITS TIME THAT YOU LEAVE THIS CARESS
BUT NOW YOU'RE JUST (a) POOR GUY IN THE ROAD
In an everlasting kiss, everlasting kiss

Firstly I'd like to thank you for the time you spent on this, Happysheep.
It seems to confirm one direction, I may be wrong but I had always thought this was about two lovers meeting in the midst of a crowd and the rest of the people was blurred. But it could have, or it's just my imagination, a link with The Breathtaking Blue and the James Dean's crash, a car race on which onlookers bet, and all the protagonists of the scene are in for a rush of adrenaline.

My interpretation of the song is pretty simple. A black-leathered "punk" pays to go into a club, seeking excitement. The point of view then switches to the girl, as she and the boy meet and then kiss. In the final verse the point of view switches back to the boy, as he realizes that what was just supposed to be a "fling" is something way more intense, and that he doesn't want to let her go.
