Stina Nordenstam – Down Desire Avenue lyrics

Down desire avenue
Where all the pilots go
Line in a bar when day is thru
Keeping the world in a place below

Tall second rated moviestars
Step from their overcoloured truth
Out thru a side door right into
Desire avenue

Empty faces, silly walks
Coming in from the tight-rope dance
Men judging balance above all
Looking down on their shaking hands

It's coming up it's hard to breathe
And I think of you
I'm going down but nothing's cheap
Down desire avenue

One bite of cold and one of heat
A sip of lust a sip of pain
A careless way to cross the street
That is the way to play this game

Now - is a red-hot piece of coal
Thrown right at you
This isn't courage anymore
Down desire avenue
