1987 [M/V] Duran Duran – Skin Trade, A Matter Of Feeling

Skin Trade

Working on the weekend baby
she’s working all through the night
a jump into the deep-end gave her
the evidence she required
Takes five: she’s got pearls
don’t fake it when it comes to
making money, so… she smiles,
but that’s cruel
If you know what she thinks,
if you knew what she was after

Sometimes she wonders
and she laughs in her frustration

Would someone please explain
the reason for this strange behaviour
In exploitation’s name
we must be working for the skin trade

Doctors of the revolution gave us
the medicine we desired
Besides being absolutely painless
it’s a question of compromise
They got steel
It’s so cool
to get angry at the weekend
and go back to school
So big deal: it’s what rules
When it comes to making money
say yes, please, thank you…

Sometimes you wonder
and you ask yourself the question

Would someone please explain
the reason for this strange behaviour
In exploitation’s name
we must be working for the skin trade
Would someone please explain
the reason for this strange behaviour
In exploitation’s name
we must be working for the skin trade

I know the answer
but I’m asking you the question

Would someone please explain
the reason for this strange behaviour
In exploitation’s name
we must be working for the skin trade

 

A Matter Of Feeling

How does it feel when everyone surrounds you?
how do you deal, do crowds just make you feel lonely?
what do you say when people come and try to pin you down?

Acquaintances smile, but that’s no understanding
how, after a while you keep falling off the same mountain
try to explain it, but nothing really gets that high.

Steel away in the morning, love’s already history to you
it’s a habit you’re forming, this body’s desperate for something new
just a matter of feeling, these moments of madness sure to pass
and tears will dry as you’re leaving, who knows, you might find something to last

emotion’s a game, saved up for a rainy monday
but you laugh just the same, ’cause it’s been pouring on sunday
call up your numbers, and never let the zeros bring you down

how does it feel, is time too heavy to hold?
whatever you decide for the moment is holy
whenever you slow down to see life is passing by

Steel away in the morning, love’s already history to you
it’s a habit you’re forming, this body’s desperate for something new
just a matter of feeling, these moments of madness sure to pass
and tears will dry as you’re leaving, who knows, you might find something to last

you can…

steel away in the morning, love’s already history to you
it’s a habit you’re forming, this body’s desperate for something new
just a matter of feeling, these moments of madness sure to pass
and tears will dry as you’re leaving, who knows, you might find something to last

A Matter Of Feeling
A Matter Of Feeling, when it comes you steel away
A Matter Of Feeling

A Matter Of Feeling, when it comes you steel away
A Matter Of Feeling
A Matter Of Feeling, wetting tears will dry
A Matter Of Feeling
