Bryan Ferry – I Thought lyrics

I thought you'd be my streetcar named desire
My way--my taste of wine
I thought you'd be that flame within the fire
One dream that just won't die
All night--out looking for new love
Impossible true love--nothing at all
Looking for new gods--looking for new blood
Looking for you
I thought I'd find you walking in the rain
Just like a wayward child
I thought I'd find you calling out my name
So foolish is my pride
All night--looking for new love
Impossible true love--nothing at all
Looking for new ways--looking for strange blood
Looking for you
I thought I'd be your streetcar named desire
Your man--the one you seek
I thought I'd take you deep within myself
Subtitles when we speak
Hold on--the flower says reach out
The thunder says no shout is greater than mine
Listen and hold on--till the day fades out
Smothered in gold.
