Lyrics

  • CD1

  • Notorious

    No-no-Notorious. Notorious. Ah. No-no-Notorious.

    I can't read about it.
    Burns the skin from your eyes.
    I'll do fine without it.
    Here's one you don't compromise.
    Lies come hard in disguise.
    They need to fight it out.
    Not wild about it.
    Lay your seedy judgements.
    Who says they're part of our lives?

    [CHORUS]
    You own the money ;
    You control the witness.
    I'll leave you lonely.
    Don't monkey with my business.
    You pay the prophets to justify your reasons.
    I heard your promise,but I don't believe it.

    That's why I've done it again. No-no-Notorious.

    Girls will keep the secrets (uh)
    So long as boys make a noise.
    Fools run rings to break up.
    Something they'll never destroy.
    Grand Notorious slam (bam).
    And who really gives a damn for a flaky bandit?
    Don't ask me to bleed about it;
    I need this blood to survive.

    [CHORUS]

    That's why I've done it again. No-no-Notorious.

    [CHORUS]

    [CHORUS]

    That's why I've done it again. No. No.
    That's why I've done it again. No-no-Notorious.
    That's why I've done it again. No-no-Notorious.
    No-no-Notorious. Yeah.
    That's why I've done it again. No-no-Notorious.
    No-no-Notorious. Yeah.
    That's why I've done it again. No-no-Notorious.
    No-no-Notorious.

  • It's a little bit late now,
    But there's times you will
    Get a little bit out of hand,
    Making all of a spill.
    And if we can lay this down,
    You're going all the way.
    Take a look and I'll check it out,
    'cause I can always find it.

    Such a lonely place. Ooh.
    This room without your face. Ooh.

    [CHORUS]
    Ooh. American Science.
    All night long she can two-step and sway.
    Ooh, it's such awful manners.
    Don't keep me waiting, come and lie beside me.

    A little megalomania becomes you, evidently.
    There ain't a thing you can acquire
    With your cling-wrap plaything.
    Just look at this state.
    I crawl around in a daze,
    Like symptomatic case
    Of your soul persuasion.

    Such a lonely place. Ooh.
    This room without your face. Ooh.

    [CHORUS]

    Ooh, it's a little bit later now,
    And there's time you will let it all get
    Out of hand when you feel you feel.
    I just switched on the operation.
    Such a lovely face. Ooh.
    It pulls me into place. Ooh.

    [CHORUS (Repeat for FADE)]

  • Working on the weekend, baby.
    She's working all through the night.
    A jump into the deep end gave her
    The evidence she required.
    Takes five; she's got pearls.
    Don't fake it when it comes to making money.
    So she smiles. But that's cruel.
    If you know what she thinks
    If you knew what she was after.

    Sometimes she wonders,
    And she laughs in her frustration.

    [CHORUS]
    Would someone please explain
    The reason for this strange behaviour.
    In exploitation's name
    We must be working for the Skin Trade.

    Doctors of the revolution gave us
    The medicine we desired.
    Besides being absolutely painless
    It's a question of compromise.
    They got steel.
    So cool to get angry at the weekend
    And go back to school.
    So big deal; it's what rules.
    When it comes to making money,
    Say yes, please; thank you.

    Sometimes you wonder, and ask yourself the question.

    [CHORUS (Repeated)]

    I know the answer, but I'm asking you the question.

    [CHORUS (Repeat for FADE)]

  • How does it feel
    When everyone surrounds you?
    How do you deal?
    Do crowds just make you feel lonely?
    What do you say
    When people come and try to pin you down?
    Acquaintances smile,
    But that's no understanding.
    How, after a while
    You keep falling off the same mountain.
    Try to explain it,
    But nothing really gets them that high.

    [CHORUS]
    Steal away in the morning;
    Love's already history to you.
    It's a habit you're forming.
    This body's desperate for something new.
    Just A Matter of Feeling
    These moments of madness are sure to pass,
    And tears will dry as you're leaving.
    Who knows, you might find something to last.

    Emotion's a game,
    Saved up for a rainy Monday.
    But you laugh just the same,
    'cause it's been pouring on Sunday.
    Call up your numbers,
    And never let the zeros bring you down.
    How does it feel?
    Is time too heavy to hold?
    Whatever you decide for the moment is holy.
    Whenever you slow down to see life is passing by.

    [CHORUS]

    You can...[CHORUS]

    A matter of feeling. A matter of feeling.
    A matter of feeling. A matter of feeling.

  • Yeah, this time.
    Shall we walk?
    Shall we run through my head, you understand?
    Does the body you conceal
    Need the touch of someone's hand?
    Ashes; violations.
    Who would they burn for?
    In your isolation what can't you see?

    I wonder if the light's down.
    I wonder if they're listening.

    [CHORUS]
    Hold me. Lay your shame away.
    Show me where your lovers stay.
    Hold me. Lay your ghost away.
    Show me for yourself.

    You are lost and alone,
    But a prisoner of your pride.
    When the passions you ignore
    You can never hide.
    One of these days you're gonna find out,
    'cause one of these days you're gonna try.
    And what did I say
    To make you wind up
    With this spear of guilt inside.

    I wonder if the light's down.
    I wonder if they're listening.

    [CHORUS]

    Na na na na na na na. Hold Me.
    Na na na na na na. Show me.
    No na na na na na na na na na.

    [CHORUS]

  • Hey guys, turn it up to get sleazy.
    Twist it in a vice
    Nobody said it was easy.
    Just use your naked eyes, oh.
    How to see and how to hide it.
    How to save it. Well, maybe. Maybe. Maybe.
    You can take it and eat it, and chew your life supply.

    Where's the real life in your illusion?
    On the dark side your power's in confusion.
    Do the dance. Do the demolition.
    And lose the chance to hear when you don't listen.

    Don't you feel edgy?
    Bite your lips and bleed.
    Conversation is empty;
    Abandoned in the freeze.
    Freedom is your condemnation.
    Free to say well, maybe. Maybe. Maybe. Maybe.
    You can take it or leave it.
    Just need a little hit tonight.

    Where's the real life in your illusion?
    On the dark of power in confusion.
    Do the dance. Do the demolition.
    Don't lose the chance to hear 'cause you don't listen.

    Maybe. Maybe. Maybe you can try to believe it.
    Just need a little help tonight.

    Where's the real life in your illusion?
    On the dark side of power in confusion.
    Do the dance. Do the demolition.
    And lose the chance to hear when you don't listen.

    Where's the real life in your illusion?
    On the dark side of power in confusion.
    Do the dance. Do the demolition.
    And lose the chance to hear when you don't listen.

    Repeat for FADE:
    Hear it when you listen.
    You don't hear when you don't listen.

  • I,.......So Misled.

    In the summer of a London life,
    "Gold," she said, was a month before I
    Realised sold instead.
    Babe, it's such an awful choice.
    Don't break my back.
    Take it easy, now you whipping boy.
    Don't wanna feel the crack.

    Trust my head to say lose it;
    Now my body's got to use it.

    [CHORUS]
    I should not be So Misled.
    I should not be So Misled.

    Saw an advert in a magazine;
    Safe it said, with the satisfaction
    Guaranteed to cool your head.

    I can't see the solution
    To this state of confusion.

    [CHORUS]

    [Instrumental ad lib]

    [CHORUS (Repeated for FADE)]

  • Miss November Tuesday,
    Bend your rubber rules.
    Take your time, but don't take
    Off your high heeled shoes.
    She's in demand at dinner time;
    She's on the factory wall.
    And when the gentlemen retire
    Guess who's in control?
    She blew your money
    On taking a cruise.
    If that isn't funny,
    Well, watch out teacher.

    [CHORUS]
    Ooh, ooh. When the chamber's empty
    She said ooh, ooh, Meet El Presidente.

    Dressed in flimsy clothing,
    Use your lipstick line
    To colour fear and loathing
    With a pink disguise.
    You've never refused when she lies back
    Put a stripe on the union; and a star on the jack.
    She's on the case at dinner time.
    She's on the evening news.
    And if you dare step out of line
    You're going to be abused.
    You may not like it;
    You may not be scared.
    But hell has no fury like a
    Young girl's ego.

    [CHORUS]

    Ooh, ooh. Doo, doo, doo.
    You might adopt an attitude;
    Look on the moral side.
    But if police are after you,
    Where's the best place to hide?
    For this production
    They gave her a gun.
    Ain't no director--
    So watch out actors!

    [CHORUS (Repeat till finish)]

  • The trade's on.
    She drains emotion
    To drink from her breast of fortune.
    Dreams have frozen crystal in the morning.
    Birth time rose;
    A thorn for coronation.

    All arise from your rest.
    We will find enough there to feed you.
    Soon you'll belong to the blest.
    Spare us your lives while we need you.

    Loud is the music the crowd is bringing
    Out of my head as the winter marches on.
    Loud is the music. The sky is ringing.
    Out of my head as the winter marches on.

    Loud is the music the crowd is bringing
    Out of my head as the winter marches on.
    Loud is the music. The sky is ringing.
    Out of my head as the winter marches on.

    And on.
    Winter marches on.

  • "Bring back that child," she said.
    Spare me the price of freedom.
    Cold is my baby's head,
    Blown by the wind of reason.
    Even the rage behind
    Cries out to see
    We're still standing
    Under the closing edge.
    Pay for the crime of feeling.

    When all your pride is dead
    You must be scared instead.

    [CHORUS]
    A quiet word is my Proposition.
    A promise made of a fierce day.
    A body bleeds for this coalition.
    Without surrender if you stay.

    "Show me my youth," she cried.
    Wasted for desolation.
    Hold up the sacrifice.
    Pull down your institution.
    Resting while anger flies.
    Question's the same.
    Who's deciding after the clouds have lain.
    Shame on your generation.

    When all your guilt lies dead
    You must be scared instead.

    [CHORUS]

    When all your pain lies dead
    You must be scared instead.

    [CHORUS (Repeating for FADE. Vocal ad lib.)]

  • Time will see we're not searching for a wild excuse
    To put emotions back on hold
    Too much has gone down we know what you're doing
    But do you feel the same way
    You look sharp inside your pointed shoes
    I have this picture hanging in my room
    And I refuse to take you down or shake you down
    We could bring you gently round if that's what you choose
    For a point of view coz words like sand just get blown away
    All those things we'd like to say

    We need you [Repeat ad lib and end]

  • [Verse 1]
    Meeting you with a view to a kill
    Face to face in secret places, feel the chill

    Nightfall covers me, but you know the plans I'm making
    Still overseas, could it be the whole Earth opening wide
    A sacred why, a mystery gaping inside
    A week is why, until we...

    [Chorus]
    Dance into the fire
    That fatal kiss is all we need
    Dance into the fire
    To fatal sounds of broken dreams
    Dance into the fire
    That fatal kiss is all we need
    Dance into the fire

    [Verse 2]
    The choice for you is the view to a kill
    Between the shades assassination standing still

    Earth's crystal tears, the fall of snowflakes on your body
    First time in years to drench your skin in lover's rosy stain
    A chance to find the phoenix for the flame
    A chance to die, but can we...

    [Chorus]
    Dance into the fire
    That fatal kiss is all we need
    Dance into the fire
    To fatal sounds of broken dreams
    Dance into the fire
    That fatal kiss is all we need
    Dance into the fire

    When all we see is the view to a kill

  • [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]

  • [Verse 1]
    Out on the tar plains, the glides are moving
    All looking for a new place to drive
    You sit beside me, so newly charming
    Sweating dew drops glisten, freshing your side

    [Chorus]
    And the sun drips down bedding heavy behind
    The front of your dress all shadowy lined
    And the droning engine throbs in time
    With your beating heart

    [Verse 2]
    Way down the lane away, living for another day
    The aphids swarm up in the drifting haze
    Swim seagull in the sky towards that hollow western isle
    My envied lady holds you fast in her gaze

    [Chorus]
    And the sun drips down bedding heavy behind
    The front of your dress all shadowy lined
    And the droning engine throbs in time
    With your beating heart

    [Chorus]
    And the sun drips down bedding heavy behind
    The front of your dress all shadowy lined
    And the droning engine throbs in time
    With your beating heart

    [Refrain]
    Sing, Blue Silver

    [Bridge]
    And watching lovers part, I feel you smiling
    What glass splinters lie so deep in your mind
    To tear out from your eyes with a word to stiffen brooding lies
    But I'll only watch you leave me further behind

    [Chorus]
    And the sun drips down bedding heavy behind
    The front of your dress all shadowy lined
    And the droning engine throbs in time
    With your beating heart

    [Chorus]
    And the sun drips down bedding heavy behind
    The front of your dress all shadowy lined
    And the droning engine throbs in time
    With your beating heart

    [Refrain]
    Sing, Blue Silver
    Sing, sing Blue Silver

    "Known as Albert Schweitzer
    There's more to this kind of camouflage, more than just colour and shape
    Who's crawling now in the tall grass near my tent?
    Listen..."

  • [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

    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...

  • [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

  • [Intro-Refrain]
    Wild boys, wild boys, wild boys
    Wild boys
    Wild! Boys!

    [Verse 1]
    The wild boys are calling
    On their way back from the fire
    In august moon's surrender to
    A dust cloud on the rise
    Wild boys fallen far from glory
    Reckless and so hungered
    On the razors edge you trail
    Because there's murder by the roadside
    In a sore afraid new world

    [Pre-Chorus]
    They tried to break us
    Looks like they'll try again

    [Chorus]
    Wild boys never lose it
    Wild boys never chose this way
    Wild boys never close your eyes
    Wild boys always shine

    [Verse 2]
    You got sirens for a welcome
    There's bloodstain for your pain
    And your telephone been ringing while
    You're dancing in the rain
    Wild boys wonder where is glory
    Where is all you angels
    Now the figureheads have fell
    And lovers war with arrows over
    Secrets they could tell

    Pre-Chorus
    They tried to tame you
    Looks like they'll try again

    [Chorus]
    Wild boys never lose it
    Wild boys never chose this way
    Wild boys never close your eyes
    Wild boys always shine

    [Refrain]
    Wild boys, wild boys, wild boys
    Wild boys, wild boys, wild boys

    [Chorus]
    Wild boys never lose it
    Wild boys never chose this way
    Wild boys never close your eyes
    Wild boys always

    [Chorus ]
    Wild boys never lose it
    Wild boys never chose this way
    Wild boys never close your eyes
    Wild boys always

    [Outro-Chorus ]
    Wild boys never lose it
    Wild boys never chose this way
    Wild boys never close your eyes
    Wild boys always, wild boys
