Tunnel of Love

getting crazy on the waltzers but it's the life that I choose sing about the sixblade sing about the switchback and a torture tattoo and I been riding on a ghost train where the cars they scream and slam and I don't know where I'll be tonight but I'd always tell you where I am in a screaming ring of faces I seen her standing in the light she had a ticket for the races just like me she was a victim of the night I put a hand upon the lever said let it rock and let it roll I had the one arm bandit fever there was an arrow through my heart and my soul and the big wheel keep on turning neon burning up above and I'm just high on the world come on and take a low ride with me girl on the tunnel of love it's just the danger when you're riding at your own risk she said you are the perfect stranger she said baby let's keep it like this it's just a cake walk twisting baby step right up and say hey mister give me two give me two cos any two can play and the big wheel keep on turning neon burning up above and I'm just high on the world come on and take a low ride with me girl on the tunnel of love well it's been money for muscle another whirligig money for muscle and another girl I dig another hustle just to make it big and rockaway rockaway and girl it looks so pretty to me just like it always did like the spanish city to me when we were kids oh girl it looks so pretty to me just like it always did like the spanish city to me when we were kids she took off a silver locket she said remember me by this she put her hand in my pocket I got a keepsake and a kiss and in the roar of the dust and diesel I stood and watched her walk away I could have caught up with her easy enough but something must have made me stay and the big wheel keep on turning neon burning up above and I'm just high on the world come on and take a low ride with me girl on the tunnel of love and now I'm searching through these carousels and the carnival arcades searching everywhere from steeplechase to palisades in any shooting gallery where promises are made to rockaway rockaway from cullercoats and whitley bay out to rockaway and girl it looks so pretty to me like it always did like the spanish city to me when we were kids girl it looks so pretty to me like it always did like the spanish city to me when we were kids


Romeo and Juliet

a lovestruck romeo sings the streets a serenade laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made finds a streetlight steps out of the shade says something like you and me babe how about it? juliet says hey it's romeo you nearly gave me a heart attack he's underneath the window she's singing hey la my boyfriend's back you shoudn't come around here singing up at people like that anyway what you gonna do about it? juliet the dice were loaded from the start and I bet and you exploded in my heart and I forget I forget the movie song when you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong juliet? come up on different streets they both were streets of shame both dirty both mean yes and the dream was just the same and I dream your dream for you and now your dream is real how can you look at me as I was just another one of your deals? well you can fall for chains of silver you can fall for chains of gold you can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold you promised me everything you promised me thick and thin now you just say oh romeo yeah you know I used to have a scene with him juliet when we made love you used to cry you said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die there's a place for us you know the movie song when you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong? I can't do the talk like the talk on the tv and I can't do a love song like the way its meant to be I can't do everything but I'd do anything for you can't do anything except be in love with you and all I do is miss you and the way we used to be all I do is keep the beat the bad company all I do is kiss you through the bars of Orion julie I'd do the stars with you any time juliet when we made love you used to cry you said I love you like the stars above Ill love you till I die there's a place for us you know the movie song when you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong? a lovestruck romeo sings the streets a serenade laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade says something like you and me babe how about it?
