The Blue Nile: The Downtown Lights


When all I really wanna do
Is love and hold you right
There is just one thing I can say
Nobody loves you this way
It's alright
Can't you see?
The downtown lights



In love we're all the same
We're walking down an empty street
And with nobody, call your name
Empty streets, empty nights
The downtown lights

How do I know you feel it?
How do I know you feel it?
How do I know you feel it?
How do I know it's true?

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, it's alright

Tonight and every night
Let's go walking down this empty street
Let's walk in the cool evening light
Wrong or right
Be at my side
The downtown lights

It will be alright
It will be alright
The downtown lights
Yeah, yeah

How do I know you feel it?
How do I know you feel it?
How do I know you feel it?
How do I know it's true?

It's alright
It's alright
The downtown lights

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

How do I know you feel it?
How do I know you feel it?
How do I know you feel it?
How do I know it's true?

Yeah, yeah, the downtown lights

The neon's and the cigarettes
Rented rooms and rented cars
The crowded streets, the empty bars
Chimney tops and trumpets
The golden lights, the loving prayers
The coloured shoes, the empty trains
I'm tired of crying on the stairs
The downtown lights

Yeah, yeah

Beth Orton: Blood Red River


Took a friend I found across some blood red river
Never did find my way home in time to forgive her
Why must people always want what they can't have?
Why must people always grab what they'd never grasp?
How do we get so far?
How do we move so fast away
From the lilac-lillied lake
I'm sure we used to stay
Is it only a dream away?
 



Took a raft I found across some blood red river
Never did find my home in time for my dinner
Why must people always want what they never had?
Why is it a crime to miss a part of you that's bled?
How do we get so far?
How do we move so fast away
From the lilac-lillied lake
I'm sure we used to stay
Is it only a dream away?
Only a dream away

Lost a friend I found down some blood red river
Never did find my way home in time to forget her
Why must people always want what they can't have?
Why must people always take, but forget to ask?
How do we get so far?
How do we move so fast away
From the lilac-lillied lake
Where I'm told we used to play
Is it only a dream away?
Only a dream, only a dream away
Away
