About "Rush Street" album:
This page contains lyrics from the album
"Rush Street" by Richard Marx, which was released in 1991 and consists of 8 songs.
I had a dream that you stood right in front of me
And called to me in black and white
Though I could see you, I couldn't reach you
You faded into the light
And when the sun turns a dream to reality
I'm left with such an empty space
I feel your spirit, know that I'm near it
I swear I can see your face
Hands In Your Pocket
We're all victims of the system, still we love to place the blame,
We're running out of choices and there's no rules to the game.
I'm getting tired of feeling this way,
What can a single man do? what can he say?
Every day you walk the edge of a knife,
You're left with nothing at the end of your life.
They've got their hands in your pocket,
They'll take the clothes off your back...
...They'll stop you like a heart attack.
We put people into power but we fight our wars alone,
My mother came to Hazard when I was just seven
Even then the folks in town said with prejudiced eyes
That boy's not right ...
Three years ago when I came to know Mary
First time that someone looked beyond the rumours and the lies
And saw the man inside ...
We used to walk down by the river
She loved to watch the sun go down
We used to walk along the river
And dream our way out of this town ...
Keep Coming Back
You know just how to hurt me
There were times, I think you knew
And how to take all the pain away
Girl, you must be the devil in disguise
There's some kind of madness in your eyes
When I was so afraid of you
Nobody else can see
You know a place buried deep in my heart
Victim of temptation, can't make it go away.
You see it and you want it, baby, never hear a word I say.
You know I don't want nothing I don't deserve,
Oh, no! I won't take less than I know I'm worth.
All this talking makes me feel like a monkey in a cage,
Ain't no point in trying to change a man of my age.
Love unemotional, purely physical,
What I'm staying for's a mystery to me...
...the heart's invisible...is what you want from me.
People say I'm crazy, wonder why I play your game,
Streets Of Pain
She's still another party blonde who has always had her way
Now just another hanger on with a faded resume
He's gonna be a leading man in the Gary Cooper mold
Now working at a pretzel stand, but it's him that's getting sold
Big dreamer gonna take the town, but she's running out of time
Still singing at a sleazy lounge to a house of drooling swine
Self satisfied narcissist with a body like a God
He's thinking that's all there is, but I don't want that job
You're the queen of your own little world, you really made a splash,
,you're like a plane flying high,
Yet not afraid to crash..
Everyone wants to know what goes on in your head,
Why do you choose to lie so lonely in your bed.
Maybe life happened, and happened too fast.
Won't let anybody touch you? (or just waiting )
You're a victim of your own past
Take This Heart
I've been where you are before
No one understands you more
So sure that your heart will break
You fear ever step you take
It's not how the story ends
You'll be back on your feet again
There ain't nothing gonna take this heart away
