Tunnel Of Love

Dire Straits

Getting crazy on the waltzers
But it's the life that I choose
Hey, sing about the six blade
Sing about the switchback
And a torture tattoo

And I've been riding on a ghost train
Where the cars they scream and slam
And I don't know where I'll be tonight
But I'd always tell you where I am

In a screaming ring of faces
I seen her standing in the light
She had a ticket for the races
Yeah, just like me, she was a victim of the night

I put my hand upon the lever
Said: Let it rock and let it roll
I had the one arm bandit fever
There was an arrow through my heart and my soul

And the big wheel keep on turning
Neon burning up above
And I'm just high on the world
Come on and take a low ride with me, girl
On the tunnel of love, yeah, love

It's just the danger
When you're riding at your own risk
She said: You are the perfect stranger
She said: Baby, let's keep it like this

It's just a cakewalk twisting baby
Yeah, step right up and see
Hey, misterm give me two, give me two now
'Cause any two can play

And the big wheel keep on turning
Neon burning up above
And I'm just high on the world
Come on and take a low ride with me girl
On the tunnel of love, oh, love

Well, it's been money for muscle on another whirligig
Money for muscle and another girl I dig
Another hustle just to, just to make it big
And rock away, walk away
Oh, rock away walk away

And girl it looks so pretty to me
Like it always did
Oh, like the Spanish city to me
When we were kids
Yeah, girl it looks so pretty to me
Just like it always did
Oh, like the Spanish city to me
When we were kids

She took off a silver locket
She said: Remember me by this
She put her hand in my pocket
I got a keepsake and a kiss
And in the roar of dust and diesel
I stood, I watched her walk away
I could have caught up with her easy enough
But something must have made me stay

And the big wheel keep on turning
Neon burning up above
And I'm just high on this world
Come on and take a low ride with me girl
On the tunnel of love, yeah, love, love
On the tunnel of love, oh, love, love

And now I'm searching through these carousels and the carnival arcades
Searching everywhere from Steeplechase to Palisades
In any shooting gallery where promises are made
To rock away, rock away
Walk away, walk away
From Cullercoats and Whitley Bay
Out to walk away

And girl it looks so pretty to me
Like it always did
Oh, like the Spanish city to me
When we were kids
Yeah, girl it looks so pretty to me
Just like it always did
Oh, like the Spanish city to me
When we were kids
