Siren - 1975



1- Love Is The Drug" (Ferry/Mackay)
T'ain't no big thing
To wait for the bell to ring
T'ain't no big thing
The toll of the bell
Aggravated - spare for days
I troll downtown the red light place
Jump up bubble up - what's in store
Love is the drug and I need to score
Showing out, showing out, hit and run
Boy meets girl where the beat goes on
Stitched up tight, can't shake free
Love is the drug, got a hook on me
Oh oh catch that buzz
Love is the drug I'm thinking of
Oh oh can't you see
Love is the drug for me
Late that night I park my car
Stake my place in the singles bar
Face to face, toe to toe
Heart to heart as we hit the floor
Lumber up, limbo down
The locked embrace, the stumble round
I say go, she say yes
Dim the lights, you can guess the rest
Oh oh catch that buzz
Love is the drug I'm thinking of
Oh oh can't you see
Love is the drug, got a hook in me
Oh oh catch that buzz
Love is the drug I'm thinking of
Oh oh can't you see
Love is the drug for me


2- End Of The Line" (Ferry)
Think I'll walk out in the rain
Called you time and time again
I got no reply
You've gone
Reached the point of no return
The more I see the more I stand alone
I see the end of the line
Were you ever lonely'
Mystified and blue'
Realising only
Your number's up
You're through
Done my share of winning
Now's my turn to lose
After a fair beginning
The game's up
I'm through
Think I'll walk out in the storm
There no love to keep me warm inside
Hope it's fine at the end of the line
Now's the time to take a dive
Try a magic carpet ride
Everything is wrong
You've gone
If you ever miss me
If I should cross your mind
You know where to find me
I'll be waiting at the end of the line


3- Sentimental Fool" (Ferry/Mackay)
Surely you cannot be leading me on'
Well if that's so, however can I love again'
How could I believe again'
How can I hold on'
Sentimental fool
Knowing that fate is cruel,
You ought to forget it.
Yes, I know it's true,
I've seen what love can do,
But I don't regret it.
Oh, you silly thing-
Don't you see what's happening'
You're better without it.
No, that's not the case-
If you were in my place,
You never would doubt it.
Sentimental fool
Who broke the golden rule,
You couldn't resist it.
Though it's all in vain,
I'd do it all again
Just to relive a minute.
A woman in love
Can make you feel good-
You know what you're living for.
She'll give you so much
And keep you in touch
With all that's worth living for.
Oh once she gets in
Through thick and through thin
She'll show you what living's for.
The rhythm of love
It must go on
Can't stop.
The beat of your heart
Is like a drum
Will it stop'


4- Whirlwind" (Ferry/Manzanera)
May Day
Cut down to size again
What then
When less is more my friend
I'll change
Let me start again
Disguise
It's too weird to explain
Why I'll
Always call your name
Adieu; with you
I could be anything
That I want to be
Whirlwind
Wildfire and driving rain
Wheels spin
Bowl me over hurricane
Whirlwind
Crack your cheeks and blow
Me Far
So far
How far
Is Shangri-la from here
And is it this way'
There she blows
Tear me down tornado
Whirlpool
Drag me to the deeps below
Whirlwind
Will a wildcat strike be tame'
Earthquake
Shake me to my feet again
It's crosswords go you near
A fatal clue I fear
This case is closed
Elementally, my dear.
Beware
Whirlwind


5- She Sells" (Ferry/Jobson)
Now you're talking in headlines
Up to the minute and free
Stop press, hold the front page
Up as a mirror
Are you reading me'
Watch you walking in waltz time
A jigsaw puzzle in tune
Or are you faking a straight line
To suit yourself too soon
Rather nouveau than never
Contemporary ideal
Some natural kind of poet might slow it
But she sells more my speed
She sells country and modern
Ancient western song
Of oriental confusion
You so right, me so wrong
Now you're fixing to fly me-
Auto-erotic, please,
On the break that you're gliding.
Your lingerie's a gift-wrap
Slip it to me
Nine till five
The daily grind
Made-up lies
Make up my mind
Same machine consuming you
Consuming you
Oh why
She sells
I need
Oh why love why
She sells
I need.


6- Could It Happen To Me?" (Ferry)
Do you know what it means to me
To delight in your company
Could it happen to me
Do you know what I'm certain of'
I would love to fall in love
Could it happened to me'
Hey won't you look at me
Now I'm cracked wide open I can't conceal
My all-over trembling, I'm acting strange
And while you're out of reach, I never change
God knows I'm beside myself
If a tear's a crime, then I must confess
My guilty secret, I'm not ashamed
Take me as I am, an average man
Oh boy is it getting rough
When my old world charm isn't quite enough
I'd throw you cantos, I'd jazz 'em up
When I lay me down, you don't pick up
What's more, it's a crying shame
Only this time no one but myself to blame
All I touch turns to dust
It's right there in my cards, I ought to cut
Let us sing of the tortured heart
And a lonely soul in this world apart
As he plays a fear, takes a little pain
And move our separate ways again
Is it easy to say 'I do''
At this moment I love you
See beyond me, it's true
Now that evening is closing in
Should I light that fire again'
Could it happen to me'
Did it happen to you'


7- Both Ends Burning" (Ferry)
Please don't ever let me down
'Cause you know I'm not so sure
Do I have the speed to carry on
Burn you out of my mind, I know
You're a flame that never fades
Jungle red's a deadly shade
Both ends burning, will the fires keep
Somewhere deep in my soul tonight
Both ends burning
Burning
Burn
Now my course is plain as day
Running bold across to play
Both ends burning with a strange desire
That feeds the fire in my soul tonight
I will dance the night away
Living only for today
Both ends burning while you're counting sheep
Hell- who can sleep in this heat this night'
Tell me will I ever learn'
It's too late, the rush is on
Both ends burning and I can't control
The fires raging in my soul tonight
Oh will it never end'
Put your foot around the bend
Drive me crazy to an early grave
Tell me what is there to save tonight
Both ends burning
Burning
Burn
Keep on burning till the end, until the end
Keep on burning till the end, the very end


8- Nightingale" (Ferry/Manzanera)
Before the morning comes, will I hear your song
Come little nightingale, I won't be here for long
When you're up there flying, do you care
If there's no one else around'
When your lover leaves you in the air
Do you waver, do you fall'
Now while the moon is high
Shall we, nightingale,
Duet all through the night
A pair of souls for sale
Stars cluster glistening
Captive till the dawn
Patiently listening
They've heard it all before
Should I stay here or should I go'
I couldn't bear to be alone
Was it really love I saw'
Oh, now I'll never know
What is this I hear'
I recognise that song
Sweet little nightingale I knew you'd come along
Soon when the morning comes.
We will both be gone
So sing pretty nightingale
Lead, I'll follow on.


9- Just Another High" (Ferry)
Maybe your heart is aching
I wouldn't know, now would I'
Maybe your spirit's breaking up
I shouldn't care, now should I'
Maybe you're thinking of me
Well I don't know, now do I'
If you only knew how I feel
Wish I could die, now don't I'
I'm just another crazy guy
Playing at love was another high
Just another high
Couldn't believe in my eyes
You drifted into my life
But marriages made in heaven
Can they survive in this life'
Surely it came as no surprise
Love was too hot to handle
Well I really blew my cool and you
You just blew out the candle
Didn't you just try just another high'
Didn't you sign as you waved goodbye'
Just another high
I'm just another crazy guy
Playing at love was another high
Such a crazy high
Lately it seems so empty here
But I suppose I'm alright
Maybe tomorrow's not so clear
Still I remember that night
Singing to you like this is
My only way to reach you
Though I'm too proud to say it
Oh how I long too see you
Shattered by dreams, by your goodbye
As shattered my goodbye, as filled the sky
Desolate am I
Just another crazy guy
Playing at love was another high
Such a crazy high
Maybe I should start anew
And maybe I should find someone who
Will maybe love me like I love you
Maybe I'm too stuck on you
Maybe I got stuck on you
