Tunnel Of Love Lyrics

from Album (Follow Me Home) by Dire Straits
Dire Straits were a British rock band, formed by Mark Knopfler (vocals and lead guitar), his younger brother David Knopfler (rhythm guitar and vocals), John Illsley (bass guitar and vocals), and Pick [more..]

Getting crazy on the waltzers but it's the life that I choose

Sing about the sixblade sing about the switchback and a torture tattoo

And I 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 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



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 step right up and say

Hey mister give me two give me two cos 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



Well it's been money for muscle another whirligig

Money for muscle another girl I dig

Another hustle just to make it big

And rockaway rockaway



And girl it looks so pretty to me just like it always did

Like the spanish city to me when we were kids

Oh girl it looks so pretty to me just like it always did

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 and 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 the world

Come on and take a low ride with me girl

On the tunnel of 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 rockaway rockaway from Cullercoats and Whitley bay out to rockaway



And girl it looks so pretty to me like it always did

Like the spanish city to me when we were kids

Girl it looks so pretty to me like it always did

Like the spanish city to me when we were kids
