A Sort of Homecoming (5:26) :

And you know it's time to go

Through the sleet and driving snow

Across the fields of mourning

Light in the distance

And you hunger for the time

Time to heal, desire, time

And your earth moves beneath

Your own dream landscape

Oh, oh, oh...

On borderland we run...

I'll be there

I'll be there...

Tonight

A high road

A high road out from here

The city walls are all come down

The dust, a smoke screen all around

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 valley explode

Dislocated, suffocated

The land grows weary of its own

Oh, 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

Tonight

I'll be there tonight...I believe

I'll be there...somehow

I'll be there...tonight

Tonight

The wind will crack in winter time

This bomb-blast lightning waltz

No spoken words, just a scream...

Tonight we'll build a bridge

Across the sea and land

See the sky, the burning rain

She will die and live again

Tonight

And your heart beats so slow

Through the rain and fallen snow

Across the fields of mourning

Light's in the distance

Oh don't sorrow, no don't weep

For tonight, at last

I am coming home

I am coming home

 


  

Pride (In the Name of Love) (3:47) :

One man come in the name of love

One man come and go

One man come, he to justify

One man to overthrow

In the name of love

What more in the name of love

In the name of love

What more in the name of love

One man caught on a barbed 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

In the name of love

What more in the name of love

(nobody like you...)

Early morning, April 4

Shot rings out in the Memphis sky

Free at last, they took your life

They could not take your pride

In the name of love

What more in the name of love

In the name of love

What more in the name of love

In the name of love

What more in the name of love...

 


 

Wire (4:16) :

Innocent, and in a sense I am

Guilty of the crime that's now in hand

Such a nice day

Throw your life away

Such a nice day

Let it go

Cold these eyes, I can't believe it

Cold, this heart is slow

Heart is slow

Call me

Such a cold heart

Such a cold man

Watch you tear your self apart

So lay me down

My soul to give

So lay me down

The longest sleep

Oh, the longest sleep

In 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 lose

Is this the time

The time to choose

Cold these eyes, I can't believe it

So deep inside a cold fire

Cold, this heart is slow...

Anytime you're only a kiss away

Won't you do it now

That's right, just keep me going

In some white track

You come the right track

Cartoon cutout

Cut throat bled out

I'm on your side

Be on the both side

I'm alright Jack

You get off my back

I'm no dope

I give you hope

Here's the rope

Here's the rope

Now...swing away

 


 

The Unforgettable Fire (4:53) :

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 'til 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...

I think 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...

Ever after, this love in time

And if you save your love

Save it all

Don't push me too far

Don't push me too far

Tonight

Tonight

Tonight...

 


Promenade (2:31) :

Earth sky sea and rain

Is she coming back again

Men of straw, snooker hall

Words that build or destroy

Dirt dry bone sand and stone

Barbed-wire fence cut me down

I'd like to be around

In a spiral staircase

To the higher ground

And I, like a firework, explode

Roman candle lightning lights up the sky

In the cracked streets trampled under foot

Sidestep, sidewalk

I see you stare into space

Have I got closer now

Behind the face

Oh...tell me...

Charity dance with me

Turn me around tonight

Up through spiral staircase

To the higher ground

Slide show sea side town

Coca-Cola, football radio radio radio

Radio radio radio...

 


4th of July (2:12) :

Instrumental

 

 


Bad (6:06) :

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 through 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

Wide awake

I'm not sleeping

Oh, no, no, no

If you should ask then maybe they'd

Tell you what I would say

True colors fly in blue and black

Bruised silken sky 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 desperation

Dislocation

Separation

Condemnation

Revelation

In temptation

Isolation

Desolation

Let it go

And so fade away

To let it go

And so fade away

To let it go

And so to fade away

I'm wide awake

I'm wide awake

Wide awake

I'm not sleeping

Oh, no, no, no

 


 

Indian Summer Sky (4:16) :

In the ocean

Cut, swim, deep the sky

Like there, I don't know why

In the forest, there's a clearing

I run there towards the light

Sky...

It's a blue sky

In the earth a hole dig deep, decide

If I could, I would

Up for air to swim against the tide

Hey, hey, hey

Up toward the sky

It's a blue sky

To lose along the way

The spark that set the flame

To flicker and to fade

On this the longest day

So wind blow through to my heart

So wind blow through my soul

So wind blow through to my heart

So wind blow through my soul

So wind blow through to my heart...

You give yourself to this the longest day

You give yourself, you give it all away

Two rivers run too deep

The seasons change and so do I

The light that strikes the tallest trees

Will light a way for I

Will light a way

Up toward the sky

It's a blue sky

To lose along the way

The spark that set the flame

To flicker and to fade

On this the longest day

So wind go through to my heart

So wind blow through my soul

So wind go through to my heart

So wind blow through my soul

So wind go through to my heart

So wind blow through my soul

So wind go through to my heart...

You give yourself to this the longest day

You give yourself, you give it all away

 


 

Elvis Presley and America (6:22) :

(Black flash)

Black flash over my own love

Tell me of my eyes

Black flash come though my own life

Telling these things

And I believe them

And I believe in you

White flash sees the sky

And it turns its side from you

She won't turn my back

And I know you turn so blue

And you know

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 is your side

And your time with me

Ah, don't talk to me

Ah, don't talk to me

Don't talk to me

You know

Like no one told you how

But you know

Though the king that howls has howled

But you feel like sentimental

But you don't care

If I just share it in your heart

(Heart...)

Hopelessly

So hopelessly

I'm breaking through for you and me

And you don't

Though no one told you to

And you found out

Where you were going, where to

You're through with me

But I know that you will be back

For more

And you know

And though no one told you so

And you know, blue sky

Like a harder shade of blue

And you walk

When you want

To let go

Me, I'm the outside, tell me fade away

Drop me down but don't break me

In your sleep

In your sleep, inside

It's in your heart and mine

Whole sea is dark

It's in your heart and mine

Sweetly, those will come

Loving is on your side walking through

So let me in your heart

Your beat is like something...

They...

Run...

See say you're sad and reach by

So say you're sad above beside

Oh stay sad above beside

So stay sad above we said

You know I don't

No one told you how

(And you don't)

(And you wipe sweat off your white brow)

And you care

And no one told you tried

And your heart

Is left out from the side

And the rain beats down

And the shame goes down

And this rain keeps on coming down

And this sky

Tonight...

You know "S" "O" "N" "G", why

You're going go join to God

You know "S" "O" "N" "G", why

Give away some him no lie

Give away some my de day no

You know

And though no one told you sky

And you feel

Like you pretend you can

You say go, you live

Go live outside of me

Don't you leave

Don't leave out part of me

Then I can feel

Like I feel before

Like I hurt now

And I see the floor

If you pick me up

Bits and pieces on this floor

 


 

MLK (2:32) :

Sleep

Sleep tonight

And may your dreams

Be realized

If the thunder cloud

Passes rain

So let it rain

Rain down on him

So let it be

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
