1981 DURAN DURAN (First Album)

Girls On Film

See them walking hand in hand across the bridge at midnight
Heads turning as the lights flashing out are so bright
And walk right out to the four line track
There’s a camera rolling on her back
On her back
And I sense a rhythm humming
in a frenzy all the way down her spine

Girls on Film
Girls on Film
Girls on Film
Girls on Film

Lipstick cherry all over the lens as she’s falling
And miles of sharp blue water coming in where she lies
The diving man’s coming up for air
‘Cause the crowd all love pulling Dolly by the hair
By the hair
And she wonders how she ever got here
as she goes under again

Girls on Film (Two minutes later)
Girls on Film
Girls on Film (Got your picture)
Girls on Film

Wider, baby, smiling you’ve just made a million
Fuses pumping live heat twisting out on a wire
Take one last glimpse into the night
I’m touching close
I’m holding bright, holding tight
Give me shudders in a whisper,
Take me up til I’m shooting a star

Girls on Film (she’s more than a lady)
Girls on Film
Girls on Film (Two minutes later)
Girls on Film
Girls on Film (see you together)
Girls on Film
Girls on Film (see you later)
Girls on Film

(fade out)

Planet Earth

Only came outside to watch the nightfall with the rain
I heard you making patterns rhyme
Like some new romantic looking for the TV sound
you’ll see I’m right some other time

look now, look all around, there’s no sign of life
voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
This is Planet Earth, you’re looking at Planet Earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is Planet Earth

My head is stuck on something precious
Let me know if you’re coming down to land
Is there anybody out there trying to get through?
My eyes are so cloudy I can’t see you

Look now, look all around, there’s no sign of life
Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
This is Planet Earth, you’re looking at Planet Earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is Planet Earth

Look now, look all around, there’s no sign of life
Voices, another sound, can you hear me now?
This is Planet Earth, you’re looking at Planet Earth

Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is Planet Earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop calling Planet Earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this looking at Planet Earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is Planet Earth

Anyone Out There

I never found out what made you leave
And now the day’s over, just an hour to go
I tried to phone last night, but you never answered
Just left me ringing on the line

Outside
Is there anyone out there?
Anyone else outside?
Oh, outside
Is there anyone out there?
Anyone else outside?
My face in the mirror shows a break in time
A crack in the ocean that does not align
I tried to sleep last night, but I caught you dreaming
About days we used to wonder away

Outside
Is there anyone out there?
Anyone else outside?
Oh, outside
Is there anyone out there?
Anyone else outside?

Look out of the window,
Maybe you can call by my name
Another night over, babe,
Another light comes on in vain
I tried to phone last night, but you never answered
Just left me ringing in the air

Is there anyone out there? (anyone out there) Oh
Anyone out there? (anyone out there) Oh
Anyone out there? (anyone out there) Oh
Anyone out there? (anyone out there) Oh
Anyone out there? (anyone out there)

To The Shore

Oh when your nine day feed is up and you’ve drained your loving cup
Come stands reeling to the shore oh when the brave are coming out
The dry fight and the dusty shout see you crawling on the floor
And diamond stars shining glitter bright gorging your sanhedralites
Words are falling to the floor glad stand pouring fruit trees
And now they glisten on the waterline sing home you are at the shore
I’m moving crissie pretty flowers in the shuttermaze
Haul up all your petty desires leave them lying down they fall
Wash away the rusty disease of your brown town days in our silver sea
Leave it dying at the door feather yellow your time to leave
Open out your arms and breathe

Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh to the shore now
Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh to the shore now come on

Careless Memories

So soon, just after you’ve gone
my senses sharpen
But it always takes
so damned long
before I feel how much
my eyes have darkened

Fear hangs a plane of gun smoke
drifting in our room
so easy to disturb
with a thought
with a whisper
with a careless memory

On the table
signs of love lie scattered
and the walls break
with a crashing within
It’s not as though
as though you really mattered
But being close,
how could I let you go
without some feeling
some precious sympathy following

Fear hangs a plane of gun smoke
drifting in our room
so easy to disturb
with a thought
with a whisper
with a careless memory

I walk out into the sun
I try to find a new day
but the whole place
it just screams in my eyes
where are you now?
cuz I don’t want to meet you
I think I’d die
I think I’d laugh at you
I think I’d cry
What am I supposed to do
follow you?

Outside the thoughts
come flooding back now
I just try to forget you
So easy to disturb
with a thought
with a whisper
with a careless memory

Night Boat

Standing on the edge of the quay
No light flashes on the water for me
Fog in my mind darkens in my eyes
Silently screaming for a distant sound
Ripple river yellows
Rising for a breath of breeding and drowns
Stillness overcomes me in the night
Listen to the rising water moan

I’m waiting, waiting for the nightboat
I’m waiting, waiting for the nightboat

Shadows all through me shudder away
Echo me, echo me
Am i alone or is the river alive
’cause it echoes me, echoes me, echoes me

I’m waiting, waiting for the nightboat
I’m waiting, waiting for the nightboat
Waiting for the nightboat
I’m waiting
I’m waiting, waiting for the nightboat
I’m waiting for the nightboat

Sound Of Thunder

Been in this grass here for the last ten hours
My clothes are dirty but my mouth isn’t dry
How does it happen, does it fly through the air
Oh, I gave up asking days away

And now I’m lying here waiting for the sound of thunder

Here I am, I’m the dotted line
Cut the corners stick me to your door
I’m the man who stepped off the path
And I just lie here
It’s what I was made for

And now my eyes are closing but I still feel the land
Leaning out for the touch of my hand

The world spins so fast
That I might fly off
The world spins so fast
That I might fly off
The world spins so fast
That I might fly off

I’m waiting for the sound of thunder

Friends Of Mine

I think youre growing old
I thinks its time you were told
Running cold, the waters running cold

When will you realise, Im sick of you alibis
Silly lies, dont have to advertise

And I know that Im not taking any more (hey hey)
Oh no not me Im not too late
Leave him out now hes having fun
Rocky picture has lost his gun
And I know that Im not waiting anymore
Oh no not me Im not too late
No more heroes we twist and shout
Georgie davies is coming out

What are you waiting for
Ive told you twice before
I said close the door
Close the door
More like a waste of time
Said they were passing time
They said they were friends of mine
Friends of mine

Tel Aviv

The afternoon, it’s one maybe two
Sipping away my last gold star, not so much to do
Dream away the sunny day until it’s time to leave
I’ll just watch you pass on by
When I’m on my own in tel aviv

With the blocks to one side
The beach on the other
And the trees and the leaves
On my own in tel aviv
And the trees and the leaves
On my own in tel aviv

Is There Something I Should Know?

Please please tell me now
Please please tell me now
Please please tell me now
Please please tell me now

I made a break I run out yesterday
Tried to find my mountain hideaway
Maybe next year maybe no go
I know you’re watching me every minute of the day yeah
I’ve seen the signs and the looks and the pictures they give your game
Away yeah
There’s a dream that strings the road with broken glass for us to hold
And I cut so far before I had to stay

Please please tell me now is there something I should know
Is there something I should say that would make you come my way
Do you feel the same ’cause you don’t let it show

People stare and cross the road from me
And jungle drums they all clear the way for me
Can you read my mind can you see in the snow
And fiery demons all dance when you walk through that door
Don’t say you’re easy on me you’re about as easy as a nuclear war
There’s a dream that strings the road with broken glass for us to hold
And I got so far before I had to say

Please please tell me now is there something I should know
Is there something I should say that would make you come my way
Do you feel the same ’cause you don’t let it show

Please please tell me now is there something I should know
Please please tell me now can you see what makes me blow
Please please tell me now is there something I should know
Is there something I should say that would make you come my way
