Song Lyrics

The Unforgettable Fire

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 colours 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 besiege your love so head on
Stay in this time
Stay tonight in a lie
I’m only asking but I think you know

Well come on take me away
Well come on take me home
Well come on take me away
We’re home again

The orchestra plays

And if the mountains 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 its 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
Today
