About This Album

Lyrics

  • Rio

    Wow!
    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

    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

    Hey now (wow), 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
    I tell you something, I know what you're thinking
    I tell you something, I know what you're thinking

    CHORUS

    Her name is Rio, she don't need to understand
    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

  • I saw you at the airace 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
    I 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

    No. 1 public figure, what a pain
    Just puts another rattle in your brain
    Take another green but it's not the same

    Now you're on the Sandlane everyday
    Dancing with the bulls in any old way
    Running like a fox to keep up with me

    CHORUS

    I'm on 45th between Sixth and Broadway
    7UP between Sixth and Broadway

  • 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
    And it's silent on your stone field
    Let me in

    Must be lucky weather when you find
    The kind of wind that you need
    C'mon, 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 it's silent in your stone field
    Let me in
    And you're lonely in your nightmare
    Let me in
    Because you've waited through your ice age
    Let me in

    Because you're so lonely in your nightmare
    Let me in
    And it's cold out on your stone range
    Let me in
    Because there's heat beneath your winter
    Let me in

  • Darken the city, night is a wire
    Steam in the subway, earth is a 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

    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

    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 heart, I'm just a moment behind
    Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo

    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, al lrunning 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

  • 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

    People tell me I haven't changed at all
    But I don't feel the same
    And I bet you've had that feeling, too
    You just can't laugh all the time

    CHORUS
    And if the fires burn out,
    There's only fire to blame
    No time for worry 'cause we're on the roam again
    The clouds all scatter and
    We ride the outside lane
    Not on your own, so help me,
    Please hold back the rain

    So what if the words ain't rhyming
    Did you think that it's just a game
    I probably didn't even say that right
    And I really don't give a damn

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

    CHORUS

  • I've been now sauntering
    Out and down the path sometime
    Come on, it takes me nowhere, which I knew
    Faces everywhere pulling grins and signs in things
    Telling me not there, man, it's no go
    Don't go there boy

    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

    Bring my timing in, seagulls gather on the wind
    Lady screaming, lady leave me out
    'Cause sometimes people stare
    Coming down, 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 makes 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 peacetime jabbing fist in stabbing knife
    Only get one look before you die

    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

    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 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,
    There lying in a swimming pool
    Searching for the undeniable truth that
    A man is just a fool

    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

    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
    (repeat to fade)

  • 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 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 beats 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 fall out forever
    I can't say no more...bebe dance with me
    And please don't say leave it till later
    I've had my last chance on the stairway

    Wonder why
    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 even know what you're thinking
    Don't even know what you're drinking
    But it keeps this heaven alive

    And sometimes I'm caught in a landslide
    My beats 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 fall out forever
    I can't say no more...bebe dance with me
    And please don't say leave it till later
    I've had my last chance on the stairway

  • 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 you 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 till the morning after

    Pretty looking road,
    try to hold the rising floods that fill my skin
    Don't ask me why I'll keep my promise,
    I'll 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 it 'til the morning after
    Save it 'til the morning after

    Save a prayer 'til the morning after

  • 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
    The sun slips 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

    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 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
