Listen To The Eight Track

(Ian Hunter)

(Mick, I've got a...)

There must be one million stories in New York City, the naked city, and this is one of 'em

I live out on the island, and I got problems
My Mom don't like me, cause she says I know Sultan(?)
Sitting in the cark park, in my old Buick Skylark
Getting high, getting high,
Getting high on the eight track

Oh, listen to the eight track
Oh, listen to the eight track
Oh, listen to the eight track
Oh, listen to the eight track

Oh it ain't easy, when you gotta survive
Keep on giving death, just to survive
Oh get out into the car park, sitting in my own Buick Skylark in the dark
Oh, 'n I'll listen to the eight track
Oh, I'll listen to the eight track
Oh, listen to the eight track
Oh, listen to the eight track
Yeah, can't wind it back
Listen to the eight track
In between the seats, in the cracks
Listen to the eight track

Oh sometimes I get a woman in here
And I put on Bruce Springsteen's new double album
And then, just when everything's getting hot
I start turning the volume right down low
Baby, let me snuggle right next to you

You turned to me sweetly, you know what she said,
She said, turn up the eight track
Oh listen to the eight track
Oh listen to the eight track, ain't no winding it back
Listen to the eight track
Listen to the eight track
Listen to the eight track

There must have been about a million stories in New York City, the naked city, and this has been one of them!

You Stepped Into My Dreams

(Ian Hunter)

That's it baby, take one last look
We gotta go catch a plane
Then you won't die, and I won't die
But we won't ever be the same

Oh I can feel a mood coming down on me
Such a good thing disappears
I can sense the loss creeping up on us
And it's deeper than any tears I've known

You stepped into my dreams
You opened up the door
You stepped into my dreams
I want you back for more

You stepped into my dreams tonight

In the shadows of the night you saw me
In the morning you were gone
Won't you blow a kiss to me baby
We both gotta be moving on

Sometimes you see a lover and she's made for love
But you let that lover slip by
You believe and yet she's so hard to get
And you never know the reasons why

She stepped into your dreams
She opened up your door
She stepped into your dreams
You want her so much more

She stepped into your dreams tonight yeah

Oh when you're doing what you're doing
What do you think of me babe
There ain't much else to say
In another time, in another place
Things might have turned out okay

I can feel a darkness I can never conceal
Sometimes I get just a little insane
I can feel emotions like the mighty oceans
They're driving me again, and I know

You stepped into my dreams
You opened up the door
You stepped into my dreams
I want you back for more

You stepped into my dreams
And I don't know what to do
I'm so scared of losing you.

Detroit (Out-take 5 - vocal)

(Ian Hunter)

He used to ride through the streets, crying through the alleyway
Freezing cold in the early morning light
Out to get a salary
Detroit, Detroit
TV image ain't gonna pay the bills
Big big cars
Detroit, Detroit
The fan
Detroit, Detroit
Big big shots
Got their heads in the sand
The usual
(buzzing cars noises from Ian)
You're late
Detroit, Detroit
He's a working man
Ghost town
Ghost town
(indistinguishable sounds, laughs)
The loneliest man in the world

China

(Ian Hunter)

China, China, the evening's moving in
See you, soon now, the boat moves with the wind
China, China, I can see the harbour lights
Light your, fire, we'll be warm tonight

China, China, the thoughts drift from the sea
I'm dreaming, of you, wear your dress for me
China, China, the oceans on the wheel(?)
The seagulls flying lower now
China I can feel you by my side
Across the bay, across the Tyne
Can you hear me say

China, China, wear your hair down low
Lady, Lady, you're frozen to the bone
China, China, the catch was good today
The oilskins clinging to my back
And the lantern gently sways

Oh don't you cry, the kids to bed
Didn't mean the things I said

China, China, the years go rolling by
Laughter, sorrow, I will not make you cry
China, China, think before you speak
Always remember the ocean hauls as deep
And if I'm tired of feeling low
Don't let me sleep, you know

China, China, the men are on the quay
Drinking, smoking, talking quietly
The water's calmer now
All my work is done
So China, see ya.
