INXS - The Stairs Lyrics

In a room above a busy street
The echoes of a life
The fragments and the accidents
Separated by incidents

Listen to by the walls
We share the same spaces
Repeated in the corridors
Performing the same movements

Storey to storey
Building to building
Street to street
We pass each other on the stairs

Storey to storey
Building to building
Street to street
We pass each other on the stairs

Listen to by the walls
We share the same spaces
Repeated in the corridors
Performing the same movements

The nature of your tragedy
Is chained around your neck
Do you lead or are you lead
Are you sure that you don't care

There are reasons here to give your life
And follow in your way
The passion lives to keep your faith
Though all are different, all are great

Climbing as we fall
We dare to hold on to our fate
And steal away our destiny
To catch ourselves
With quiet grace

Storey to storey
Building to building
Street to street
We pass each other on the stairs

Listen to by the walls
We share the same spaces
Repeated in the corridors
Performing the same movements

Storey to storey
Building to building
Street to street
We pass each other on the stairs

  13. Slicky Ricky

    one thing about concerts then is that they didn't sound EXACTLY like the album versions like they do today, which pisses me off because it makes me believe that aren't really "using their voices"

  14. nor norvirawanti

    To anybody who is reading this, Jesus Christ loves you and he has a plan for your life; Repent of your sins and receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. John 3:16 says "For God so love the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life" John 14:3 says "Jesus is the way the truth and the life, no man comes to the Father but by me" and Romans 10:9 says "if you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus died and God hath raised him from the dead then you shall be saved" Everybody Jesus is coming soon we are in the last days and we need to Repent of our sins and not sin anymore because Jesus is coming back for a bride without blemish, stains and wrinkles. For anybody who wants to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour please repeat this prayer out loud and with your whole heart = Lord Jesus Christ I REPENT of my sins, I accept you Jesus as my Lord and Saviour, I believe you Jesus that you died for me on the cross and was resurrected on the third for the forgiveness of my sins, Holy Spirit change me, cleanse me and help me to live the life you want me to live; thank you Jesus for writing my name in the Lamb's book of life and thank you for saving my soul from Hell. Congratulations if you repeated the prayer with your whole heart the angels in Heaven are rejoicing because a soul is saved now try to find a Holy Spirit fill church and be baptized in Jesus name

    And six years after, Michael left this world .

  55. Mario 1978

    Bendito seas extraña mucho tu voz. INXS por siempre. ARGENTINA TE AMA!!!

  56. josep maria marín

    Why is it so dark? In the original video there is full sunlight during this song, twilight comes with "Original Sin" aprox. I'm going to see the concert next week on cinema (very, very excited about it!!), and I hope the have'nt blackened the whole thing. I like very much "Guns In The Sky", "New Sensation", "Send a Message", etc with plenty of daylight. This is one of my favorite live videos ever, absolutely magnificient from the beginning to the end. The crowd in Wembley shows great entusiasm, going totally nuts in many moments of the show. This is pure gold. The performance is sublime.

  57. Leopoldo Lambert

    Cuando el mundo escuchaba a músicos tocando sus instrumentos de canciones compuestas y cantada por ellos mismos...
