Dire Straits - Six Blade Knife Lyrics

Your six blade knife can do anything for you
Anything you want it to
One blade for breaking my heart
One blade for tearing me apart
Your six blade knife-do anything for you

You can take away my mind like you take away the top of a tin
When you come up from behind and lay it down cold on my skin
Took a stone from my soul when I was lame
Just so you could make me tame
You take away my mind like you take away the top of a tin

I'd like to be free of it now - I don't want it no more
I'd like to be free of it now - you know I don't want it no more

Everybody got a knife it can be just what they want it to be
A needle a wife or something that you just can't see

You know it keeps you strong
Yes and it'll do me wrong
Your six blade knife - do anything for you

  6. Vanessa Morphine


  7. Tom George

    In these days a big part of his style was playing quiet notes, then loud notes. It creates a feeling of space and distance, and puts you in a trance with the hypnotic backbeat underneath. Very JJ Cale.

  8. Nicky Smith

    Good old tunes xxx LOVE IR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. BALKAN Misterije

    Nocas je k'o lubenica 😄mjesec iznad Bosne..

  16. FR RF

    c'est dans ce genre de morceau que Dire straits me semble au meilleur. Ca me renvoie à la simplicité et riffs de guitars de JJCale. Bref la classe.

  48. William H. Baird

    A perfect groove!

  49. hakat taşıat

    coolest way to play a lead guitar... mark knopfler

  50. thomas mumbo

    The music - industry, worldwide; has failed to give Mark Knopfler his due credit in my opinion. This man is a guitar legend and perfectionist. He also sings the lead vocal. Tell me who else could do it so fine. Apart from Hendrix, maybe 1 or 2 others. Anyway, the man is still alive and he is timeless. A Titan!

  51. steven Lockhart

    I love this

  52. Jose Pescador

    Is it it just me or does this song have a sexy chill vibe to it. Man it brings be back to some time I don’t remember but it a feeling I forgot! Wow and I was looking for a total different song. Thank you auto correct

  53. Penny Z Merope


  54. Ruffian970

    When I go to my old mans house this is the album I go straight for!

  55. Arturo Garza

    At 3:44 I would have let that ride out at least until 5:00.

    Joe Cebu

    You're right. That ended way too early. Maybe they were hoping it would get airplay and felt 5 mins was too long.
    That's why I miss the 70's. Songs could breathe and still be played on the radio on their entirety.

    Arturo Garza

    @Joe Cebu Knopfler is a legend, he's one of those guitarists that just got it. His guitar work is masterful, he's definitely one of the most underrated guitarists.

    Joe Cebu

    @Arturo Garza yes

  56. Josip Maretić

    love that bass

  57. Albert Karena 000

    Six blade knife do anything for you.

    The Soul Cages Sting-same riff👌🏻


    Another rip-off by Sting

    keith grewcock

    zaggy3110 That’s brilliant. Love Sting but he’s a blagger. Surprised he’s managed to avoid lawsuits, but also chord sequences are natural music progressions too. Thanks for the link👌🏻

  68. Monsieur Feedback

    Enorme. Enorme. Comme il danse déjà sur les cordes, qui roulent comme des galets sous les vagues de l'océan… Putain, énormissime !
