Lyrics

Station to Station
10:14
The return of the Thin White Duke throwing darts in lovers' eyes

Here are we, one magical moment
Such is the stuff from where dreams are woven
Bending sound, dredging the ocean
Lost in my circle
Here am I, flashing no colour
Tall in this room overlooking the ocean
Here are we, one magical movement
From Kether to Malkuth
There are you, you drive like a demon
From station to station

The return of the Thin White Duke, throwing darts in lovers' eyes
The return of the Thin White Duke, throwing darts in lovers' eyes
The return of the Thin White Duke, making sure white stays

Once there were mountains on mountains
And once there were sun birds to soar with
And once I could never be down

Got to keep searching and searching
Oh, what will I be believing
And who will connect me with love
Wonder who, wonder who, wonder when

Have you sought fortune, evasive and shy
Drink to the men who protect you and I
Drink, drink, drain your glass, raise your glass high

It's not the side-effects of the cocaine
I'm thinking that it must be love
It's too late to be grateful
It's too late to be late again
It's too late to be hateful
The European cannon is here

I must be only one in a million
I won't let the day pass without her
It's too late to be grateful
It's too late to be late again
It's too late to be hateful
The European cannon is here

Should I believe that I've been stricken
Does my face show some kind of glow
It's too late to be grateful
It's too late to be late again
It's too late to be hateful
The European cannon is here, yes it's here

It's too late, it's too late, it's too late
It's too late, it's too late
The European cannon is here

It's not the side-effects of the cocaine
I'm thinking that it must be love
It's too late to be grateful
It's too late to be late again
It's too late to be hateful
The European cannon is here

I must be only one in a million
I won't let the day pass without her
It's too late to be grateful
It's too late to be late again
It's too late to be hateful
The European cannon is here

Should I believe that I've been stricken
Does my face show some kind of glow
It's too late to be grateful
It's too late to be late again
It's too late to be hateful
The European cannon is here, yes it's here

It's too late, it's too late, it's too late
It's too late, it's too late
The European cannon is here
Golden Years

Also available on:
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Golden years, gold whop whop whop

Don't let me hear you say
Life's taking you nowhere, angel
Come get up, my baby
Look at that sky, life's begun
Nights are warm and the days are young
Come get up, my baby

There's my baby, lost that's all
Once I'm begging you save her little soul
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Come get up, my baby

Last night they loved you
Opening doors and pulling some strings, angel
Come get up, my baby
In walked luck and you looked in time
Never look back, walk tall, act fine
Come get up, my baby

I'll stick with you baby for a thousand years
Nothing's gonna touch you in these golden years, gold
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Come get up, my baby

Some of these days, and it won't be long
Gonna drive back down where you once belonged
In the back of a dream car twenty foot long
Don't cry my sweet, don't break my heart
Doing all right, but you gotta get smart
Wish upon, wish upon, day upon day, I believe, oh Lord
I believe all the way
Come get up, my baby

There's my baby, lost that's all
Once I'm begging you save her little soul
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Come get up, my baby

Don't let me hear you say life's taking you nowhere, angel
Come get up, my baby
Run for the shadows, run for the shadows
Run for the shadows in these golden years

I'll stick with you, baby, for a thousand years
Nothing's gonna touch you in these golden years, gold
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Golden years, gold whop whop whop
Word on a Wing
06:04
In this age of grand illusion
You walked into my life
Out of my dreams
I don't need another change
Still you forced your way
Into my scheme of things

You say we're growing
Growing heart and soul
In this age of grand illusion
You walked into my life
Out of my dreams

Sweet name, you're born once again for me
Sweet name, you're born once again for me
Oh sweet name, I call you again, you're born once again for me
Just because I believe, don't mean I don't think as well
Don't have to question everything in heaven or hell

Lord, I kneel and offer you
My word on a wing
And I'm trying hard to fit
Among your scheme of things
It's safer than a strange land
But I still care for myself
And I don't stand in my own light

Lord, Lord, my prayer flies like a word on a wing
My prayer flies like a word on a wing
Does my prayer fit in with your scheme of things

In this age of grand illusion
You walked into my life
Out of my dreams

Sweet name, you're born once again for me
Just as long as I can see, I'll never stop this vision flowing
I look twice and you're still flowing
Just as long as I can walk
I'll walk beside you, I'm alive in you
Sweet name, you're born once again for me
And I'm ready to shape the scheme of things

Oh, ready to shape the scheme of things
Oh, ready to shape the scheme of things
Oh, ready to shape the scheme of things
Oh, ready to shape the scheme of things

Lord, I kneel and offer you
My word on a wing
And I'm trying hard to fit
Among your scheme of things
It's safer than a strange land
But I still care for myself
And I don't stand in my own light

Lord, Lord, Lord, my prayer flies
Like a word on a wing
And I'm trying hard to fit
Among your scheme of things
It's safer than a strange land
But I still care for myself
And I don't stand in my own light

Lord, Lord, my prayer flies like a word on a wing
My prayer flies like a word on a wing
Does my prayer fit in with your scheme of things

Up every evening 'bout half eight or nine
I give my complete attention to a very good friend of mine
He's quadraphonic, he's a, he's got more channels
So hologramic, oh my TVC one five

I brought my baby home, she, she sat around forlorn
She saw my TVC one five, baby's gone, she
She crawled right in, oh my, she crawled right in my
So hologramic, oh my TVC one five
Oh so demonic, oh my TVC one five

Maybe if I pray every, each night I sit there pleading
"Send back my dream test, baby, she's my main feature"
My TVC one five, he just stares back unblinking
So hologramic, oh my TVC one five

One of these nights I may just jump down that rainbow way
Be with my baby, then we'll spend some time together
So hologramic, oh my TVC one five
My baby's in there someplace, love's rating in the sky
So hologramic, oh my TVC one five

Stay
06:16
This week dragged past me so slowly
The days fell on their knees
Maybe I'll take something to help me
Hope someone takes after me
I guess there's always some change in the weather
This time I know we could get it together
If I did casually mention tonight
That would be crazy tonight

Stay, that's what I meant to say or do something
But I never say is stay this time
I really meant to so badly this time
'Cause you can never really tell when somebody
Wants something you want too

Heartbreaker, heartbreaker, make me delight
Life is so vague when it brings someone new
This time tomorrow I'll know what to do
I know it's happened to you

Stay, that's what I meant to say or do something
But what I never say is stay this time
I really meant to so badly this time
'Cause you can never really tell when somebody
Wants something or wants to

Stay, that's what I meant to say or do something
But what I never say is stay this time
I really meant to so badly this time
'Cause you can never really tell when somebody
Wants something you want too

Love me, love me, love me, say you do
Let me fly away with you
For my love is like the wind
And wild is the wind
Wild is the wind

Give me more than one caress
Satisfy this hungriness
Let the wind blow through your heart
Oh, wild is the wind
Wild is the wind

You touch me
I hear the sound of mandolins
You kiss me
With your kiss my life begins
You're spring to me
All things to me
Don't you know you're life itself

Like a leaf clings to the tree
Oh my darling, cling to me
For we're like creatures in the wind
And wild is the wind
Wild is the wind

You touch me
I hear the sound of mandolins
You kiss me
With your kiss my life begins
You're spring to me
All things to me
Don't you know you're life itself

Like a leaf clings to the tree
Oh my darling, cling to me
For we're like creatures in the wind
And wild is the wind
Wild is the wind
