About This Album

Lyrics

  • Rio

    [Verse 1]
    Moving on the floor now babe you're a bird of paradise
    Cherry ice cream smile I suppose it's very nice
    With a step to your left and a flick to the right
    You catch that mirror way out west
    You know you're something special
    And you look like you're the best

    [Chorus]
    Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
    Just like that river twisting through a dusty land
    And when she shines she really shows you all she can
    Oh Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande

    [Verse 2]
    I've seen you on the beach and I've seen you on TV
    Two of a billion stars it means so much to me
    Like a birthday or a pretty view
    But then I'm sure that you know it's just for you

    [Chorus]
    Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
    Just like that river twisting through a dusty land
    And when she shines she really shows you all she can
    Oh Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande

    [Tenor Saxophone Solo]

    [Bridge]
    Hey now woo look at that
    Did he nearly run you down?
    At the end of the drive the lawmen arrive
    You make me feel alive, alive, alive
    I'll take my chance 'cause luck is on my side or something
    I know what you're thinking
    I tell you something, I know what you're thinking

    [Chorus]
    Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand
    Just like that river twists across a dusty land
    And when she shines she really shows you all she can
    Oh Rio, Rio dance across the Rio Grande
    Her name is Rio, she don't need to understand
    And I might find her if I'm looking like I can
    Oh Rio, Rio hear them shout across the land
    From mountains in the North down to the Rio Grande

  • [Verse 1]
    Dark in the city, night is a wire
    Steam in the subway, earth is afire
    Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo
    Woman you want me, give me a sign
    And catch my breathing even closer behind
    Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo

    [Chorus]
    In touch with the ground
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    Smell like I sound, I'm lost in a crowd
    And I'm hungry like the wolf
    Straddle the line, in discord and rhyme
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    Mouth is alive, with juices like wine
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    [Verse 2]
    Stalked in the forest, too close to hide
    I'll be upon you by the moonlight side
    Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo
    High blood drumming on your skin, it's so tight
    You feel my heat, I'm just a moment behind
    Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo

    [Chorus 2]
    In touch with the ground
    I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
    Scent and a sound
    I'm lost and I'm found
    And I'm hungry like the wolf
    Strut on a line, it's discord and rhyme
    I howl and I whine I'm after you
    Mouth is alive, all running inside
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

    [Bridge]
    Hungry like the wolf
    Hungry like the wolf
    Hungry like the wolf

    [Chorus 3]
    Burning the ground, I break from the crowd
    I'm on the hunt,I'm after you
    I smell like I sound
    I'm lost and I'm found
    And I'm hungry like the wolf
    Strut on a line, it's discord and rhyme
    I'm on the hunt I'm after you
    Mouth is alive, with juices like wine
    And I'm hungry like the wolf

  • [Verse 1]
    Standing on the edge of a quay
    Low lights flashing on the water for me
    Fogging my mind darkens my eyes
    Silently streaming for a distant sound
    Ripple river yellows
    Rising for a breath of breeding and drowns
    Stillness overcomes me in the night
    Listen to the rising water moan

    [Chorus]
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night bo-oh-oat
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night boat

    [Verse 2]
    Shudders all through me shudder away
    Echo me, echo me (echo me...)
    Am I alone or is the river alive
    'Cause it echos me, echos me, echos me

    [Chorus]
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night bo-oh-oat
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night boat

    Waiting
    Waiting for the night bo-oh-oat
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night boat
    Waiting for the night bo-oh-oat
    I'm waiting
    Waiting for the night boat

    [outro]
    I'm waiting for the night boat

  • [Verse 1]
    I've been now sauntering
    Out and down the path sometime
    Come on, it takes me nowhere, which I know
    Faces everywhere pulling grins and signs in things
    Telling me not there, man, it's no go

    I need a reason
    I can't think without one now
    Too much learning got to show
    Call it treason
    Maybe catch her, don't know how
    Too many things, too much to know

    I'll bring my timing in, seagulls gather on the wind
    Lady screaming, lady leave me out
    Cause sometimes people stare
    Sitting down, electric chair
    Steaming crowds they gather and they shout

    [Chorus 1]
    [Backing vocal Simon LeBon lead vocal]
    Don't know why this evil bothers me
    Take another chance boy, carry the fight
    You can take him if you're fast
    So why is he trying to follow me?
    Didn't I say if you're holding on
    You'd be laughing at the last
    How many reasons do they need?
    I get along fine with them friends of mine
    But you have to make a choice
    I might just believe this time
    You're singing out of tune but the beat's in time
    And it's us who makes the noise

    [Chorus 2]
    I'm talking for free, I can't stop myself
    It's a new religion
    I've something to see, I can't help myself
    It's a new religion

    [Verse 2]
    Okay, my reasoning might be clouded by the sun
    But someone sees the departmental lie
    You know this peacetime jabbing fist in stabbing knife
    Only get one look before you die

    [Chorus 1]

    [Chorus 2]

    [Verse 3]
    Got to take pay the saints 'n sinners
    In regulation hats 'n scarves 'n things
    Walking in formation down the lane
    They carry their cross, make a church bell ring
    Army majors pull a mean cool truth
    They're lying in a swimming pool
    Searching for the undeniable truth that
    A man is just a fool

    [Chorus 1]

    [Chorus 2]

  • [Intro]

    [Verse 1]
    You saw me standing by the wall
    Corner of a main street
    And the lights are flashing on your window sill
    All alone ain't much fun
    So you're looking for the thrill
    And you know just what it takes
    And where to go

    [Chorus]
    Don't say a prayer for me now
    Save it 'til the morning after
    No, don't say a prayer for me now
    Save it 'til the morning after

    [Verse 2]
    Feel the breeze deep on the inside
    Look you down into your well (Do-do-do-do-do)
    If you can, you'll see the world in all his fire (Do-do-do-do-do)
    Take a chance like all dreamers
    You can't find another way (Do-do-do-do-do)
    You don't have to dream it all
    Just live a day (Do-do-do-do-do)

    [Chorus]
    Don't say a prayer for me now
    Save it 'til the morning after
    No, don't say a prayer for me now
    Save it 'til the morning after
    Save it 'til the morning after
    Save it 'til the morning after

    [Verse 3]
    Pretty looking road
    I try to hold the rising floods that fill my skin (Do-do-do-do-do)
    Don't ask me why, I'll keep my promise
    Melt the ice (Do-do-do-do-do)
    And you wanted to dance
    So I asked you to dance
    But fear is in your soul (Do-do-do-do-do)
    Some people call it a one-night stand
    But we can call it paradise (Do-do-do-do-do)

    [Chorus]
    Don't say a prayer for me now
    Save it 'til the morning after
    No, don't say a prayer for me now
    Save it 'til the morning after
    Save it 'til the morning after
    Save it 'til the morning after
    Save it 'til the morning after
    Save it 'til the morning after

    [Bridge]
    Do-do-do-do-do
    Do-do-do, do-do-do, do-do

    [Outro]
    Save a prayer 'til the morning after
    Save a prayer 'til the morning after
    Save a prayer 'til the morning after
    Save a prayer 'til the morning after...

  • Only came outside to watch the night fall with the rain
    I heard you making patterns rhyme
    Like some new romantic looking for the TV sound
    You'll see I'm right some other time

    Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
    Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
    This is Planet Earth, you're looking at Planet Earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is Planet Earth

    My head is stuck on something precious
    Let me know if you're coming down to land
    Is there anybody out there trying to get through?
    My eyes are so cloudy I can't see you

    Look now, look all around, there's no sign of life
    Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
    This is Planet Earth, you're looking at Planet Earth

    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    This is Planet Earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    Calling Planet Earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    Looking at Planet Earth
    Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
    This is Planet Earth

  • [Verse 1]
    Friends of mine
    They said they were friends of mine
    Said they were passing time
    More like a waste of time

    Close the door
    I said close the door
    I've told you twice before
    What are you waiting for?

    [Chorus]
    Georgie Davis is coming out
    No more heroes we twist and shout
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not taking anymore
    Rocky Picture has lost his gun
    Leave him out now he's having fun
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not waiting anymore, hey, hey

    [Verse 2]
    Silly lies
    Don't have to advertise
    When will you realize?
    I'm sick of your alibis

    Running cold
    The water's running cold
    It's time that you were told
    I think you're growing old

    [Chorus]
    Georgie Davies is coming out
    No more heroes we twist and shout
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not waiting anymore
    Rocky Picture has lost his gun
    Leave him out now he's having fun
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not taking any more (hey, hey)

    [Bridge]
    I see you smile
    Pictures on the wall, they're all friends of mine
    See you standing 'round the back (friends of mine)
    Think yourself lucky

    [Verse 3]
    Friends of mine
    They said they were friends of mine
    They were just wasting time
    Out on the dotted line

    Oh, money's gone
    I've known it all along
    Why don't you say I'm wrong?
    Why don't they drop the bomb?

    [Chorus]
    'Cause Georgie Davies is coming out
    No more heroes we twist and shout
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not waiting anymore
    Rocky Picture's thrown away his gun
    Leave him out now he's having fun
    Oh no, not me, I'm not too late
    And I know that I'm not taking any more

    [Outro]
    What you doing, friends of mine?
    Holding back now, friends of mine
    I've always heard you calling

  • [Verse 1]
    So soon
    Just after you've gone
    My senses sharpen
    But it always takes
    So damned long
    Before I feel how much
    My eyes have darkened

    [Chorus 1]
    Fear hangs a plane of gun smoke
    Drifting in our room
    So easy to disturb
    With a thought
    With a whisper
    With a careless memory

    [Verse 2]
    On the table
    Signs of love life scattered
    And the walls break
    We go crashing within
    It's not as though
    As though you really mattered
    But being close
    How could I let you go
    Without some feeling
    Some precious sympathy following

    [Chorus 1]

    [Verse 3]
    I walk out into the sun
    I try to find a new day
    But the whole place
    It just screams in my eyes
    Where are you now?
    Cause I don't want to meet you
    I think I'd die
    I think I'd laugh at you
    I think I'd cry
    What am I supposed to do
    Follow you?

    [Chorus 1]

  • You've done it all, you've broken every code
    And pulled the rebel to the floor
    You spoilt the game, no matter what you say
    For only metal - what a bore!
    Blue eyes, blue eyes; how can you tell so many lies?

    Come up and see me, make me smile
    Or do what you want, runnin' wild

    There's nothing left, all gone and run away
    Maybe you'll tarry for a while
    It's just a test, a game for us to play
    Win or lose, it's hard to smile
    Resist, resist; it's from yourself you have to hide

    Come up and see me, make me smile
    Or do what you want, runnin' wild

    There ain't no more, you've taken everything
    From my belief in Mother Earth
    How can you ignore my faith in everything
    Cause' I know what faith is, what it's worth
    Away, away, and don't say maybe you'll try

    Come up and see me, make me smile
    Or do what you want, runnin' wild

    Ohhhhhhhhh la la la
    Ohhhhhhhhh la la la ohhhhhh

    Come up and see me, make me smile
    Or do what you want, runnin' wild

    Ohhhhhhhhh la la la
    Ohhhhhhhhh la la la ohhhhhh

    Come up and see me, make me smile

  • [Intro]
    Sound of Camera shutters flickering

    [Verse 1]
    See them walking hand in hand across the bridge at midnight
    Heads turning as the lights flashing out it's so bright
    Then walk right out to the four-line track
    There's a camera rolling on her back, on her back
    And I sense the rhythm humming in a frenzy all the way down her spine

    [Chorus]
    Girls on film
    Girls on film
    Girls on film
    Girls on film

    [Verse 2]
    Lipstick cherry all over the lens as she's falling
    In miles of sharp blue water coming in where she lies
    The diving man's coming up for air
    Cause the crowd all love pulling dolly by the hair, by the hair
    And she wonders how she ever got here as she goes under again

    [Chorus]
    Girls on film (two minutes later)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (got your picture)
    Girls on film

    [Verse 3]
    Wider baby smiling you just made a million
    Fuses pumping live heat twisting out on a wire
    Take one last glimpse into the night
    I'm touching close I'm holding bright, holding tight
    Give me shudders in a whisper take me up till I'm shooting a star

    [Chorus-Outro]
    Girls on film (she's more than a lady)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (two minutes later)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (see you together)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (see you later)
    Girls on film
    Girls on film (what you doing)
    Girls on film...
