[Wheels of Fire - In the studio:]
Upon this street where time has died.
The golden treat you never tried.
In times of old, in days gone by.
If I could catch your dancing eye.
It was on the way,
On the road to dreams, yeah.
Now my heart's drowned in no love streams, yeah.
The street is cold, it's trees are gone.
The story's told the dark has won.
Once we set sail to catch a star.
We had to fail, it was too far.
It was on the way,
On the road to dreams, yeah.
Now my heart's drowned in no love streams, yeah.
I felt the wind shout like a drum.
You said, "My friend, love's end has come."
It couldn't last, had to stop.
You drained it all to the last drop.
It was on the way,
On the road to dreams, yeah.
Now my heart's drowned in no love streams, yeah.
Now my heart's drowned in no love streams, yeah.
On this dark street the sun is black.
The winter life is coming back.
On this dark street it's cold inside.
There's no retreat from time that's died.
It was on the way,
On the road to dreams.
Now my heart's drowned in no love streams, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Now my heart's drowned in no love streams, yeah.
Now my heart's drowned in no love.


Upon this street where time has died.
The golden treat you never tried.
In times of old, in days gone by.
If I could catch a dancing eye.
It was on the way,
On the road to dreams, yeah.
Now my heart's drowned in no love streams, yeah.
The street is cold, it's trees are gone.
The story's told the dark has won.
Once you set sail to catch a star.
We had to fail, it was too far.
It was on the way,
On the road to dreams, yeah.
Now my heart's drowned in no love streams, yeah.
The street is cold, it's days are gone.
The story's told the dark has won.
It couldn't last, had to stop.
You drained it all to the last drop.
It was on the way,
On the road to dreams, yeah.
Now my heart's drowned in no love streams, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Now my heart's drowned in no love streams.
The street is cold, trees are gone.
There's no retreat from time that's died.
On this dark street the sun is black.
The winter life is coming back.
It was on the way,
On the road to dreams, yeah.
Now my heart's drowned in no love streams,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Now my heart's drowned in no love streams.
Now my heart's drowned in no love,
Yeah, yeah.

    Love lost is compared to a deserted city, with its empty streets. Oher images of darkness and death ("my heart's drowned") symbolize the end of the "sunshine of your love", another jack bruce vision of love.

    It's a man at the end of a relationship looking back to the beginning and then relating how he feels now. This writing conjures up very stylish images that constitute an internal, even subconscious, visual art. It is a really interesting piece of music. Even the title is perfect.
