Ferry, Bryan - I Thought Lyrics

I thought – you’d be my streetcar named desire
My way – my taste of wine
I thought – you’d be that flame within the fire
One dream that just won’t die

All night – looking for new love
Impossible true love – nothing at all
Looking for new gods – looking for new blood
Looking for you oh oh

I thought – I’d find you walking in the rain
Just like a wayward child
I thought – I’d find you calling out my name
So foolish is my pride

All night – looking for new love
Impossible true love – nothing at all
Looking for new ways – looking for strange blood
Looking for you oh oh

I thought – I’d be your streetcar named desire
Your man – the one you seek
I thought – I’d take you deep within myself
Subtitles when we speak

Hold on – the flower says reach out
The thunder says no shout is greater than mine
Listen and hold on – untill the day fades out
Smothered in gold

    The atmospherics are unreal. A swirling, surreal carnival. That ending! The finest art.

  8. C Synch

    Eno and Ferry the absolute genuine article

  9. James George. Thorpe

    Hits the Nail of LOVE right on the Head ---- BRILLIANT

  11. Werner Bluhm

    Ted Cruz had just finished peeling a salami when 45 tongue-export
    laws concerning beef-tongue deliveries into the lower-48 were read
    to a weary staff. Ted tore off his undies & his toupée & took a bath.

  18. Daniel Maxwell

    A large-colon enthusiast cried, before buying a gay-friendship ring:
    “Because of this terrible pain I can't dance & sing! This is the worst
    colitis ever experienced by anyone originally born near Wyoming!”

    The Lesbian, Chapter 1: Exploring the casual desires of women at the laundromat ~ Carla, I'm a lebian, accept it or not! Did you say that you're a lebian? Yes, I've known it since I was 12. What is a lebian? A lebian is a woman who has sexual desires for the intimate company of women. And that's a lebian? Yes. Do you mean lesbian? Maybe.

    Chapter 2: Now that that's settled ~ Carla, I'm leaving my husband to be with a woman. Who? A fellow lebian. Lesbian! Yes, lesbian. She & I want to have babies, lebian babies. Lesbian! Yes. How will you manage to have babies? What do you mean? You'll need a man to have a baby. Men don't have babies you stupid, dumb ass!

    Chapter 3: The chances of having babies without a man ~ Carla, please forgive me. That's alright. I just want to start a family with my lesbian partner. Are you sure that she's a lesbian? No, not 100%. The other night when we were impregnating each other I asked her, between yawns, if she was a genuine lesbian. What did she say? I don't know. I had taken a dog tranquilizer just before she answered. That was dumb. I know.

    Chapter 4: Ten Lifetimes of Lesbian Activity ~ Carla, I missed my period which proves that my lesbian impregnation is not impossible after all! Are you sure? Sure, I'm sure, you dumb cunt-sucking maniac! Hey, back off! You're the lesbian, not me! Sorry!

    Chapter 5: Carla, I've miscarried! ~ Our lesbian baby is dead. Who told you? The doctor. He speaks in several foreign languages all at once and he told me in Romanian, or Italian, that the baby's dead. What will you do? Well, I have a Romanian language class at 2. After that I'm going to take a dog tranquilizer.

  20. Mark Roberts

    ENOS music is stamped all over this,absolute class.bravo roxy music.

  21. Mark Roberts

    Stunning, beautiful, all that stuff.

  22. Daniel Maxwell

    With Siamese twins it is always the fucking same, 'cause neither 1's
    to blame for being given a similar, yet different, fucking first name.

  23. Daniel Maxwell

    *THE BIGGEST MISTAKE THAT WE EVER MADE WITH OUR DOG-SHIT POWERED VAN ~ I converted our van to run on dog-shit instead of gasoline for big fuel savings. One day I noticed that there was no dog-shit in the yard. “Honey, where are our 27 dogs?” I asked my wife. “I took them in the van to the humane society and had them killed.” She said. “But Honey, our van runs on dog-shit!” I exclaimed. “Oh no!” She exclaimed back. “What are we going to do now?!”; “I don't know,” I said, “we needed that dog-shit a lot.” The wife looked at me, her eyes tearing up. “That was beautiful,” she said. “What was?” I asked. “You said, 'we needed that dog-shit a lot.' I want to perform sex with you right now,” she said seductively. “Okay,” I said, “I'll call your sister.”*

  25. Rich Cooksley

    One of the greatest songs ever written. Just beautiful.

  26. w0mbles

    Just wonderful. Reminds me a lot of Eno/Cale's "Spinning Away"... the silly synth intro that reveals itself to be magical.... The similarity is obviously not coincidental; these are master songsmiths.

    David Kalman

    Definitely a Wrong Way Up vibe, plus some Ring of Fire.

  27. toralc .ctoral

    love love love this song Eno&Ferry love love love

  30. Thomas Zinner

    Einfach Top !!!!! :-)

  31. Bill Fletcher

    Rediscovered this cd today after many years. This song in particular, is sublime. Great album.

  32. Lucretius Eldritch

    Definitely Eno's fingerprints all over this one.

  33. toralc .ctoral

    delightful ... délicieux ...

  34. keith challingsworth

    I always thought that these two wrote some of the best songs working together, Ferry too poppy on his own and Eno too decadent.

    Kris Scanlon

    monmouthshire1 age old problem with bandmates. they both let years go by and should have worked together long time ago. they shared many attributes including Rhett Davies. I can't overestimate Eno role on the first 2 Roxy lps. Synths tapes and treatments .the original synth whiz with the most dapper ironic front man of all time.

    Patrick Weaver

    Roxy went off in a different direction (into mainstream) from Eno, who got rather lost with Robert Fripp and other eccentric hard-to-listen-to stuff.

  35. MotherofpearlMusic

    Love the album, love this song, love his voice :)

    joão Victor

    I love you!!! Your covers are great!!

  36. DJKevvy Kev

    New to me.
    very good.

    Neil Tucker

    Always good to hear something that resembles his old (and best) stuff.

  37. Nataniel Barros


  38. John Coley

    Great song from a great album.  A treasure.

  39. steelyman08

    Ferry and Eno in harmony. Guess they both grew up and realized that differences can be surmounted after all. The results are sublime :-)


    Absolutely! I'm so glad the reunion finally came about. The vibes are extraordinary!

  40. bill gedeon

    you can tell eno, wrote the music & ferry, the lyrics..

  41. Ric Euteneuer

    Sounds like a perfect melange of Eno and Ferry - which of course is what it is ! Vaguely reminiscent of Taking Tiger Mountain...

  42. HansKst

    It sounds like "Sexy Boy" (Air)

    El Universal Querétaro

    Jajaja. Sexy Boy is a plagiarism

    Udi Koomran

    Really - tell more

  43. amber rosie


  44. marti-grecia odalyz

    THAT particular past tense-is much so the STRANGER - in my vocabulary!!!
