There’s a song playing on the radio Sky high in the airwaves on the morning show And there’s a lifeline slipping as the record plays And as I open the blinds in my mind I’m believing that you could stay
And oh if you stay I’ll chase the rainblown fields away We’ll shine like the morning and sin in the sun Oh if you stay We’ll be the wild ones, running with the dogs today
There’s a song playing through another wall All we see and believe is the D.J. and debts dissolve And it’s a shame the plane is leaving on this sunny day Cos on you my tattoo will be bleeding and the name will stain
But oh if you stay we’ll ride from disguised suburban graves We’ll go from the bungalows where the debts still grow each day
And oh if you stay I’ll chase the rainblown fears away We’ll shine like the morning and sin in the sun oh if you stay We’ll be the wild ones running with the dogs today We’ll be the wild ones running with the dogs today
Taken from the deluxe reissue of Dog Man Star, probably my all-time favourite track of theirs. Suede have recently released remastered and expanded copies of all five of their studio albums and they sound amazing.
If you don’t feel like paying for albums you already own then you can find them here:
I know a girl she walks the asphalt world She comes to me and I supply her with Ecstasy Sometimes we ride in a taxi to the ends of the city Like big stars in the back seat like skeletons ever so pretty I know a girl she walks the asphalt world
But where does she go? And what does she do? And how does she feel when she’s next to you? And who does she love in time-honoured fur? Is it me or her?
I know a girl she walks the asphalt world She’s got a friend, they share mascara I pretend Sometimes they fly from the covers to the winter of the river For these silent stars of the cinema It’s in the blood stream, it’s in the liver I know a girl, she walks the arse felt world
But where does she go? And what does she do? And how does she feel when she’s next to you? And who does she love in time-honoured fur? Is it me or is it her?
With ice in her blood And a Dove in her head Well how does she feel when she’s in your bed? When you’re there in her arms And there in her legs Well I’ll be in her head
Cos that’s where I go And that’s what I do And that’s how it feels when the sex turns cruel Yes both of us need her, this is the asphalt world
