Brazil

Lyrics

Saw a building burning Down
In the middle of nowhere
On a sickle moon night

We flew right past that scene
Turn to the flames
that will puncture the sky

People stood and stare
and witness the owner
his head in his hands
and saw the moon
wired to the sky
just kept driving
God knows why

Down to the rivers edge
down to the river
and off the edge
down to another edge

You and I
Down to the edge again

I saw a man
standing by a light
In the middle of nowhere
In the middle of the night
I looked right into his eyes
and it was just like looking into myself

Even when I don’t believe
I still believe
I was thinking about lenord cohen
and the dungeon and the tower of song
anyway you see it that man, don’t lie

I have to keep on trying
trying to cross this great devide

Down to the rivers edge
down to the river
and off the edge
down to another edge
you and my love
down to the edge again

Seems I left my soul in a lay-by
I couldn’t get back there
I couldn’t see a way
I left my soul man, we didn’t see it die
Is this my fate, I can’t decide
trying to cross the great devide

Down to the rivers edge
down to the river
and off the edge
down to another edge
you and my love
down to the edge again

    Isn’t the fourth line of the lyrics: “We flew right past that scene”???

    That would sort of tie-in with the later lyrics about “just kept driving.”

      Thank you Justin, I hear that too! I will correct it, I don’t recall where I got these lyrics from, but obviously I didn’t check them close enough. 🙂
