(ferry/manzanera)

All you cares
Now they seem
Oh so far away
All your fears
I fear I once shared
Now I know
Thereґs a future
For all of us
Not so long ago
I was so scared
You seemed so sad
I could see
Through your twisted smile
So unsure
Always confused
Pale blue eyes
Gazing down
From your ivory tower
Through the haze
All broken and bruised
Then: out of the blue
Love came rushing in
Out of the sky
Came the sun
Out of left field
Came a lucky day
Out of the blue
No more pain
I donґt mind
If itґs only
A passing craze
Throwaway lines
Often ring true
If I were you
I would stay
For a little while
I you were me
Would you walk out
In style?

    Roxy Music lyrics are always so sophisticated, you'd probably have to analyze each line, keeping each analyzation within your all encompassing interpretation. All I'm going to do is the all encompassing one.

    It seems to be looking back on the past (possibly past love) at a time when fears about the future would torment, and realizing all things settle and life goes on. There is however still some lingering desire, though the worry/heartbreak has subsided, for things to have been different.

    My interpretation seems close to how I feel about someone, though, so maybe I'm just throwing my own experience in. That's what I love about lyrics like this; there's definitely something the lyricicist successfuly conveys, but it's cryptic enough for it to relate to people on many different levels.
