Lyrics

Rio
05:39
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

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

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

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

Hey now, look at that, 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
I tell you something, I know what you're thinking
I tell you something, I know what you're thinking

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

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
My Own Way
04:52
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

'Cause I've got my own way
I can find my own way
'Cause I've got my own way

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 Sandlane everyday
Dancing with the bulls in any old way
Running like a fox to keep up with me

'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
Lonely in Your Nightmare
03:53
Even on the darkest night when empty promise means empty hand
And soldiers coming home like shadows turning red
When the lights of hope are fading quickly then look to me
I'll be your homing angel, I'll be in your head

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

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

Because you're lonely in your nightmare, let me in
Because there's heat beneath your winter, let me in

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

Because you're 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
Hungry Like the Wolf
03:42
Dark in the city, night is a wire
Steam in the subway, earth is afire
Woman you want me, give me a sign
And catch my breathing even closer behind

In touch with the ground
I'm on the hunt, I'm after you
Smell like a 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

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

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

Hungry like the wolf
Hungry like the wolf
Hungry like the wolf

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
Hold Back the Rain
04:02
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

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

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

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

Hold back the rain
Hold back the rain
Hold back the rain

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

Hold back the rain
Hold back the rain
Hold back the rain
New Religion
05:34
I've been now sauntering out and down a path sometime
Come on, it takes me nowhere, which I know
Faces everywhere pulling grins and signs and 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, an electric chair
And steaming crowds they gather and they shout

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 make the noise

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

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

Don't know why this evil follows me
- Take another chance boy, carry the fight
- you can take him if you're fast
So why does he try to bother 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 be right this time
- You're singing out of tune, but the beat's in time
- and it's us who make the noise

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

Gotta take pay for the saints and sinners
In regulation hats and scarves and things
Walking in formation down the lane
They carry their cross like 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

Don't know why this evil follows me
- Take another chance boy, carry the fight
- you can take him if you're fast
So why does he try to bother 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 be right this time
- You're singing out of tune, but the beat's in time
- and it's us who make the noise

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
Last Chance on the Stairway
04:22
I don't remember quite how I met you, wasn't long ago
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
Just took me out on a limb and I don't really know what I'm doing here

And sometimes I'm caught in a landslide
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

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, when you're playing with fire
It doesn't seem right that we fight, so the party runs on all night

And sometimes I'm caught in a landslide
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

Wonder why, 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, I don't know what you're thinking
I don't even know what you're drinking, but it keeps this heaven alive

And sometimes I'm caught in a landslide
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
If you want I'll fall out forever
I can't say no more, baby, dance with me
And please don't say leave till later
I've had my last chance on the stairway

Last chance on the stairway
Last chance on the stairway
Save a Prayer
05:35
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

Don't save 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

Feel the breeze deep on the inside, look down into the well
If you can you'll see the world in all his fire
Take a chance, like all dreamers can't find another way
You don't have to dream it all, just live a day

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

Pretty looking road, I try to hold the rising floods that fill my skin
Don't ask me why I'll keep my promise, melt the ice
And you wanted to dance so I asked you to dance, but fear is in your soul
Some people call it a one night stand, but we can call it paradise

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 a prayer 'til the morning after
Save a prayer 'til the morning after
The Chauffeur
05:23
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 dewdrops glisten, freshing your side

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

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

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

Sing, Blue Silver

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 thought to stiffen brooding lies
And I'll only watch you leave me further behind

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

Sing, Blue Silver
Sing, sing, Blue Silver

(There's more to this kind of camouflage)
(More than just colour and shape)
(Who's going now, in to a classiomatic?)
