About This Album

Lyrics

  • Girls on Film

    [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...

  • 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

  • Fame, makes a man take things over
    Fame, lets him loose, and hard to swallow
    Fame, puts you there, when things are hollow
    Fame...

    Fame, it's not your brain, just a flame
    A funny tin to dip you insane
    Fame...

    Fame, what you like is in the Limo
    Fame, what you get is no tomorrow
    Fame, what you need you have to borrow
    Fame...

    Fame, "Nein! It's mine!" is just his line
    He's only trying to drive you to crime... (crime)
    Fame...

    Is it any wonder
    I'll reject you first
    Is it any wonder
    You're too cool to fool

    Fame
    Bully for you, chilly for me
    Got to get a rain check on... pain
    Fame...

    Fame (Rpt x23)
    What's your name?
    What a game...
    What a shame... What a shame...

  • [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]

  • I never found out what made you leave
    And now the day is over, just an hour to go
    I tried to phone last night but you didn't answer
    Just left me ringing on the line

    Outside is there anyone out there, anyone else outside
    Outside love is there anyone out there, anyone else outside

    My face in the mirror shows the break in time
    A crack in the ocean which does not align
    I tried to sleep last night but I've caught your dreaming
    About days we used to wonder away

    Outside is there anyone out there, anyone else outside
    Outside love is there anyone out there, anyone else outside

    Look out of the window maybe you can call by my name
    Another night over babe another light comes on in vain

    I tried to phone last night but you never answered
    Just left me ringing in the air (outside)

    Is there anyone out there
    (anyone out there)

  • [Verse 1]
    I've been in this grass here
    For the last ten hours
    My clothes are dirty
    But my mouth isn't dry
    How does it happen?
    Does it fly through the air?
    Woah I gave up asking days away
    I gave up asking days away

    [Chorus]
    And now I'm lying here
    Waiting for the sound of thunder
    Waiting for the sound of thunder

    [Verse 2]
    Here I am I'm a dotted line
    Cut in through corners
    Stick me through your door
    I'm the man who stepped off the path
    And I just lying here
    That's what I was made for

    [Verse 3]
    And now my eyes are closing
    But I still feel the land
    Leaning out for the touch of my hand
    The world spins so fast
    That I might fly off
    The world spins so fast
    That I might fly off
    The world spins so fast
    I might fly off

    [Outro]
    Waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder
    I'm waiting for the sound of thunder

  • [Intro]
    Please, please tell me now
    Please, please tell me now
    Please, please tell me now
    Please, please tell me now

    [Verse 1]
    I made a break, I run out yesterday
    Tried to find my mountain hideaway
    Maybe next year, maybe no go

    I know you're watching me
    Every minute of the day, yeah
    I've seen the signs
    And the looks and the pictures
    That give your game away, yeah

    There's a dream that strings the road
    With broken glass for us to hold
    And I cut so far before I had to say

    [Chorus 1]
    Please, please tell me now
    Is there something I should know?
    Is there something I should say
    That would make you come my way?
    Do you feel the same?
    'Cause you don't let it show

    [Verse 2]
    People stare and cross the road from me
    And jungle drums
    They all clear the way for me
    Can you read my mind?
    Can you see in the snow?

    And fiery demons all dance
    When you walk through that door
    Don't say you're easy on me
    You're about as easy as a nuclear war

    There's a dream that strings the road
    With broken glass for us to hold
    And I cut so far before I had to say

    [Chorus 1]
    Please, please tell me now
    Is there something I should know?
    Is there something I should say
    That would make you come my way?
    Do you feel the same?
    'Cause you don't let it show

    Please, please tell me now
    Is there something I should know?
    Is there something I should say
    That would make you come my way?
    Please, please tell me now
    Can you see what makes me blow?
    Can you see how much I'd die
    Every time it passes by?
    Please, please tell me now
    What it takes to make it show
    Is there something I should know?
    Is there something I should know?

  • Oohh, Do-do do-do-do
    Da da da da da

    Things that you used to say now take on different meanings you realise
    Can't be too careful about the lines
    Come on you know you're not so young you cannot hide behind disguise
    Listen to your own desire

    Eyes like an angel - so wise, don't lie
    You never felt like this before
    Fly like an angel - so high this time
    You send your senses streaming free

    Places you used to go when you were young look different in the dark
    Don't you worry it's O.K
    And maybe I can help you find your way tonight I think you will agree
    Summer reason's run away

    Eyes like an angel - so wise, don't lie
    You never felt like this before
    Fly like an angel - so high this time
    You've got your senses streaming free

    Oh I hear your heart beating even faster now than mine
    Now you know just what I mean
    So take your place among those twilight gleaming rivers that you read
    Give me reasons to believe

    Eyes like an angel - so wise don't lie
    You never feel like this again
    Fly like an angel - so high this time
    You send my senses streaming free

    Like an angel... da da da-da
    Like an angel... da da daa

  • [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

  • [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]
    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]
    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'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

    [Outro]
    "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..."

  • [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]
    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]
    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

  • 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
