Ferry, Bryan - The Name Of The Game Lyrics




Out of control
And as far I can see
No religion can save me now
Through I'm trying to believe
How could I know
Her madness'd cling
From the time of her first caress
To the final fling
When you know the name of the game
You can never play enough
Every drop of blood is the same
You can never shed enough
Out in the cold
In the wilderness again
Where I fight for my soul
I can see no end
When you know the name of the game
You never play enough
In the name of heaven you pray
You can never pray enough
Out of control
Wild flower don't you fade
Thundercloud on the hill
Let me lie in your shade
How could I know
Her madness'd cling
From the time of her first caress
To the final fling
When you know the name of the game
You can never play enough
And the way you love is the same
You can never give enough
When you know the name of the game
You can never play enough
In the name of heaven you pray
You can never pray enough

    Great song

  2. Johnny's Rare Groovies

    Great song and underrated

  3. Baby Irene

    One of his absolute masterpieces.

    Johnny's Rare Groovies

    This song and "help me" my favourite songs

    steelyman08

    Absolutely! It's a classic Bryan Ferry song (and that's saying something!). This album is fantastic. Never received the attention that Boys & Girls did. Perhaps that one is superior, but there's nothing shabby or weak about Bete Noire either.

  4. dan zaklan

    glad i found this song again - i believe this may have been used in miami vice (correct me if i am wrong) - a true talent - he is amazing

  5. Alison Kendrick

    I love this song so brilliant but why can’t I find it on iTunes? 😫

    RaunchDressing

    I'm upset too that this whole album isn't on iTunes! I think it has something to do with royalties and publishing. Johnny Marr being featured on 'The Right Stuff' one example.

  6. Alain Jean-baptiste

    That' really one of the best , BRYAN ,very underrated song !

  7. supersumenko

    Interesting how your mind may associate music with some very specific circumstance - the first time I heard this magnificent track was during a christmas diner at a friend's house. They've set up a stereo by the patio, which was tuned to a local FM. I couldn't hide my excitement shortly after it started playing this, and luckly someone at our table told he believed the tune was performed by Bryan Ferry... A few hours later Napster confirmed it. All these memories are dated from 1999...

    I was obsessed with this song when it came out in '87! I was managing a record store and I must have played it ten times a day along with Squeeze's Babylon and On...good times, good times!!
