Song Lyrics

This is The Unforgettable Fire

Ice
Your only rivers run cold
These city lights
They shine of 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 colours spin
Through alcohol
Red wine that punctures the skin
Face to face
In a dry and water-less place

Walk on by
Walk on through
So sad to besiege your love so head on
Stay in this time
Stay tonight in a lie
I’m only asking but I think you know

Come on take me away
Come on take me home
Come on take me away
We’re home again

(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 lie
I’m only asking but I think you know

Stay in this time
Stay tonight
Ever after it’s loving time
And if you save your love
Save it all
Well don’t push me too far
Don’t push me too far…tonight
Tonight, tonight
