The Unforgettable Fire
And you know it's time to go through the sleet and driving snow across the fields of mourning to lights in the distance And you hunger for the time time to heal, 'Desire', time and you earth moves beneath your own dream landscape Oh, oh on borderland we run and still we run, we run and don't look back I'll be there, I'll be there tonight, a highroad, a highroad out of here the city walls are all come down the dust a smoke screen all around to see faces ploughed like fields that once gave no resistance And we live by the side of the road on the side of a hill as the valleys explode dislocated, suffocated the land grows weary of it's own Oh, oh on borderland we run and still we run, we run and don't look back tonight, tonight The wind will crack in wintertime a bomb-blast lightning waltz no spoken words, just a scream . . . tonight we'll a bridge across the sea and land see the sky burning rain she will die and live again tonight And you heart beats so slow through the rain and fallen snow across the fields of morning to a light that's in the distance Oh don't sorrow, no don't weep for tonight, at last I am coming home I am coming home
One man come in the name of love, One man come and go. One come here to justify, One man to overthrow, In the name of love, What more in the name of love. One man crawled on a barb wire fence, One man he resist. One man washed on an empty beach. One man betrayed with a kiss. In the name of love, What more in the name of love. Early morning, April 4. A shot rings out in the Memphis sky. Free at last, they took your life, But they could not take your pride. In the name of love, What more in the name of love.
Innocent and in a sense I am Guilty of the crime that's now in hand Sutch a nice day To throw your life away Sutch a nice day To let it go Oh these eyes, I can't believe it Cold, this heart is slow, Heart is stone Call me Sutch a cold heart Sutch a cold man Watch you tear your self apart Soul leaves on my soul to kill Soul leaves on the longest sleep The longest sleep On I come and out you go you get Here we are again, now place your bets Is this the time ? The time to win or loose ? Is this the time ? The time to choose ? Oh these eyes, I can't believe it Soul burns with a cold fire Cold, this heart is slow, Heart is stone Any time your on there Give some away Wont you tell me That's it just give me it I'm on your side Be on the same side I'm alright jack You get off my back I won't go I give you hope Here's the rope Here's the rope Now swing away
Ice. Your only rivers run cold, These city lights, They shine as silver and gold, Dug from the night. Your eyes as black as coal. Walk on by, Walk on through, Walk till you run. And don't look back. For here, I am. Carnival, the wheels fly and the colors spin through alcohol. Red wine that punctures the skin. Face to face in a dry and waterless place. Walk on by, Walk on through So sad to beseige your love so, Head on, stay this time. Stay tonight, in a lie. I'm only asking but I think that you know. Come on take me away. Come on take me away. Come on take me home. Home again. And if the mountain should crumble, or disappear into the sea. Not a tear, no not I stay in this time. Stay tonight in a light. Ever after, this love in time. And if you save it all, save you love. Don't push me too far tonight.
Earth, sky, sea, and rain Here she comes back again. Men stroll, sneak the hall Words that build or destroy. Dirt dry bones and stones. bobbed wire fence cut me down, I'd like to be around. In a spiral staircase to the higher ground. And I like a firewall And explode. Roman candlelightning lights up the sky. In cracked streets, tremble under fort. Sidestep, sidewalk. I see you stare into space. Have I gotten closer now, behind the face. Tell me, will you dance with me, and turn me around tonight. Up though the spiral staircase to the higher ground. See slide show, see side town, coca-cola radio radio radio . . .
4th Of July
If you twist and turn away. If you tear yourself in two again. If I could, yes I would If I could, I would let it go. Surrender, dislocate. If I could throw this lifeless Lifeline to the wind. Leave this heart of clay, See you walk, walk away, Into the night. And through the rain. Into the half-light, And through the flame. If I could throw myself, set your spirit free. I'd lead your heart away, See you break, break away Into the light. And to the day. To let it go, And so to fade away. To let it go, And so fade away. I'm wide awake. I'm wide awake. I'm not sleeping. Oh, no, no. If you should ask then maybe They tell you what I would say. True colors fly in blue and black, bruised silken skies and burning flag. Colors crash, collide in blood shot eyes. If I could, you know I would. If I could, I would let it go. This desparation. Dislocation. Separation. Condemnation. Revelation. Temptation. Isolation. Desolation. Let it go, And so to fade away. To let it go, And so fade away. Oh, no I'm wide awake. I'm wide awake. I'm not sleeping. Oh, no no
In the ocean. Cuts wind, deep the sky. I like there - don't know why. In the forest there's a clearing eye. Running toward the light. Sky. Blue sky. In the aweful holding. Deep decide. If I could, I would. Up for swimming against the tide. Up toward the sky. It's a blue sky. To loose along the way. The spark that set the flame. To flicker and to fade, On this the longest day. So the wind go through to my heart. So wind go through my soul. You give yourself to this the longest day. You give yourself, you give it all away. Two rivers run as deep as seas. They change and so do I. The light that strikes the tallest trees. The light , wait for I. Up toward the sky. It's a blue sky. To loose along the way The spark that set the flame. To flicker and to fade, Of this the longest days. So wind go through to my heart, So wind blow through my soul. You give yourself, You give the longest days. You give yourself, You give it all away.
White flash, under my own love. Tell me of my own. White flash come though my own life. Telling these things. And I weary them. And I believe in you. White flash see the sky, And it turns inside from you. She won't turn my back. And I know that it makes me blue. And you hope. And your sky is feeling blue. And your heart, so cold when I'm with you. And you feel, like no one told you to. And your time was on your side. Don't talk to me. You know, like no one told you how, but you know the king that howls has howled. But you feel like sentimental. But you don't care without sharing in your heart. But there's no hope, go to sleep. So hope in sleep. I breaking through for you and me. And you don't. No one told you to. And you found out Where you were going to. You were through with me, but I know you should be back for more You know, And no one told you so. And you know the sky, And it's shade of blue. And you walk, you walk to let go. You pull from the outside, tell me Don't fade away. Drop me down but don't break me. In your sleep. It's in your heart and mine. The whole sea is dark. Loving is on your side and walking through. So let me in your heart, You beat is like something from you. They lost it. So stay (sad) over midnight. Oh stay (sad) under the sky. And you know, and no one told you how. And you cared, and no one told you tried. And your heart, it lift out from the side. And the rain beats down. And the shame beats down. And this rain keeps on coming down. And this time is right. Don't let them push you by, You're going to go join God. And if someone ask you why, You tell them some old lie. Give away some ole lie. You know, and no one told you why. And you feel, Like you pretend you can Go you live. Don't you leave Don't leave out part of me that I can feel. Like I can feel me fall. I can't hold on, see that flaw. Let me feel. Let the pieces only flow.
Sleep, sleep tonight. And may your dreams Be realized If the thunder cloud Passes rain. So let it rain, rain down him. So let it be. Sleep, Sleep tonight And may your dreams be realized. If the thundercloud passes rain, so let it rain. Let it rain, rain on him.
