Cat Empire, The - Prophets In The Sky Lyrics




You saw the carnival in Rio
You saw them dancing in the sun
But listen to your corazon
Can you believe you’re always on your own?

You’re like a song without a singer
You’re like a bird without a song
You’re all alone, all alone
And you’re walking down a long and dusty road

All you tricksters and hipsters and prophets in the sky...
Can you imagine
A love like that?
A love like that

This love is older than your father
This love is younger than your son
You feel it in your corazon
And it will be here when everything is gone

And as the night turns into morning
When the fire burns to coal
She whispers in your corazon
Now you know, now you know now you know

All you tricksters and hipsters and prophets in the sky...
Can you imagine
A love like that?
A love like that

You’re lost in the crowd but I know that I’ll find you
The song doesn’t lie
Under the arches of some ancient street
Between the shadow and the light
I know that pair of eyes

And with the summer comes the madness
All your faces in the night
We light our fires on the lawn
And build a temple to save us from the dawn

You can’t have everybody love you
You can’t have sunshine every day
You see her dancing there alone
Then you know, then you know, then you know

All you tricksters and hipsters and prophets in the sky...
Can you imagine
A love like that?
A love like that

    My second favourite track from this incredible album. Most albums have a couple of great songs and loads of "fillers" but THIS album has ten great songs and a couple of ok ones! Brilliant!

  10. ReasonsUnjustified

    When I first listened to this I said "This is totally the theme song to Mr. and Mrs. Smith" and I'm still sticking to this opinion because I know it works. It's frickin perfect.
