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]
    I saw you at the air race yesterday
    April showers get out of my way
    Fear of flying no not me
    I'm never bothered what you say
    Someone's kid just lives for today
    It ain't your problem anyway

    [Chorus]
    Cause I've got my own way, I can find my own way, cause I've got my own way
    Cause I've got my own way, I can find my own way, cause I've got my own way

    [Verse 2]
    Number one
    Public figure what a pain
    Just puts another rattle in your brain
    Take another green but it's not the same
    So now you're on the sand lane everyday
    Dancing with the bulls in any old way
    Running like a fox to keep up with me

    [Chorus]

    [Bridge]
    I'm on 45 between 6th and Broadway,
    7UP between 6th and Broadway

    [Chorus]

  • [Verse 1]
    Even on the darkest night when empty promise means empty hand
    And soldiers coming home like shadows turning red
    And when the lights of hope are fading quickly then look to me
    I'll be your homing angel I'll be in your head

    [Chorus]
    Because you're lonely in your nightmare let me in
    And there's heat beneath your winter let me in

    [Verse 2]
    I see the delta traces living lonely out on the limb
    And a passing glimmer warm beneath your skin
    Please tread gently on the ground when all around you earth turns to fire
    Only get a second chance when danger's on the wind

    [Chorus]

    [Verse 3]
    Must be lucky weather when you find the kind of wind that you need
    Come on show me all the light and shade that made your name
    I know you've got it in your head I've seen that look before
    You've built your refuge turns you captive all the same

    [Outro]
    Because your lonely in your nightmare let me in
    And it's barren in your garden let me in
    Because there's heat beneath your winter let me in
    Because you're so lonely in your nightmare let me in
    And it's cold out on the stone range let me in
    Because there's heat beneath your winter let me in

  • [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]
    Hold back the rain
    Yes we're miles away from nowhere
    And the wind doesn't have a name
    So call it what you want to call it
    Still blows down the lane

    [Chorus]
    And if the fires burn out there's only fire to blame
    (hold back the rain)
    No time for worry cause we're on the roam again
    (hold back the rain)
    The clouds all scatter and we ride the outside lane
    (hold back the rain)
    Not on your own so help me please hold back the rain

    [Verse 2]
    Okay go off and wander
    I'm guilty just the same
    Sometimes you're needed badly
    So please come back again

    [Chorus][x2]

    [Outro]
    Hold back the rain, hold back the rain. hold back the rain
    Hold back the rain (hold back the rain), hold back the rain
    (Hold back the rain), hold back the rain (hold back the rain)
    Hold back the rain (hold back the rain), hold back the rain

  • [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]
    I don't remember quite how I met you wasn't long ago
    I just get a picture of sun in your eyes the waves in your hair
    Maybe it's something said in a movie or you could've said last night
    It just took me out on a limb and I don't really know what I'm doing here

    [Chorus 1]
    And sometimes I'm caught in a landslide and my beat's so in time, can you look at me?
    I'm out of reach I'll talk if it feels right, I've had my last chance on the stairway

    [Verse 2]
    Funny it's just like a scene out of Voltaire twisting out of sight
    'Cause when all the curtains are pulled back we'll turn and see the circles we've traced
    Ain't no game (ooo-ooo) when you're playing with fire
    It doesn't seem right that we fight so the party runs on all night

    [Chorus 2]
    And sometimes I'm caught in a landslide and my beat's so in time, can you look at me?
    I'm out of reach I'll talk if it feels right, so nervous to say, tell me can't you see?
    And if you want I'll fall out forever, I can't say no more, baby dance with me
    And please don't say leave it till later, I've had my last chance on the stairway

    [Verse 3]
    Wonder why (wonder why ooo-ooo) what makes me rise so high
    Maybe it's something they put in your perfume or the look in your eyes
    It could be the atmosphere sinking, oh, I don't know what you're thinking
    I don't even know what you're drinking, but it keeps this heaven alive

    [Chorus 2]
    And sometimes I'm caught in a landslide and my beat's so in time, can you look at me?
    I'm out of reach I'll talk if it feels right, so nervous to say, tell me can't you see?
    And if you want I'll fall out forever, I can't say no more, baby dance with me
    And please don't say leave it till later, I've had my last chance on the stairway

    [Outro]
    Last chance on the stairway
    Last chance on the stairway
    Last chance on the stairway
    Last chance on the stairway
    Last chance on the stairway
    Last chance on the stairway
    Last chance on the stairway

  • [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...

  • [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

    [Outro]
