Mike + The Mechanics - Background Noise Lyrics




These streets
These streets have beats that linger
These trigger fingers seldom caress
The best sound
Comes from nowhere

In These streets
We speak in conversations
Caught up in invitations
And yet
The best sound comes from nowhere
Out of nothing

In the background noise
Comes the world of choice
In the distance a familiar voice
It's the one, it's the one
I adore

In the background noise
I can hear you call
With such persistence
That I have to fall
It's the one, it's the one
I adore

What gives what takes
I'm always considered a contender
I surrender I surrender

In the background noise
Comes the world of choice
In the distance a familiar voice
It's the one, it's the one
I adore

In the background noise
I can hear you call
With such persistence
That I have to fall
It's the one, it's the one
I adore

These streets

    my favourite piece on this album

  4. david mateu soriano

    este álbum de Mike and the mecganics " the road " no lo tengo , quiero que alguien me diga si es bueno o no , de momento he escuchado un par o 3 de temas por Youtube y no está mal , pero tampoco es algo sensacional , por esto pregunto , a mi opinión debe de ser un álbum flojo pero bueno no se si esta aparte de Mike rutherford ...Paul carrack o A.lee etc ...??? por que esta voz que escucho parece la de Mike rutherford ??! o me equivoco ??? yo no tengo toda la discografía de ellos , pero si muchos muchos , el último que compre de ellos es muy parecida la portada , el típico trabajador de gasolinera durmiendo ....apoyado sobre unas ruedas hehehehe muy muy original ....

  5. Jacques Horn

    I'd rather say it's the musical genuis of Arno Carstens. Don't get me wrong. Mike Rutherford is good but, Carstens is better.

  6. Hillary-Frank Fernandes

    The musical genius of Mike Rutherford. One of the best songwriters ever.

  7. Jon Bromfield

    The lirics to mike and the mechanics tracks really get through to me. I have all their albums and the band never fails to amaze me

    Karen Jenkins

    I totally agree with you Jon

  8. Pieriv

    I like "It only hurts for a while" very much too, even more than this song, unfortunately it is'nt on youtube

  9. Pieriv

    nice song

  10. Claudia Noriker

    mike himself should sing this song!

  11. Ian Barber

    To me, I think Arno sounds like Paul Carrack and it helps the transition from both eras of M+TMs. One of the best of the album!

  12. stexxie

    King Rutherford... ;)

  13. yamahasynth

    Mike should do more with Arno Carstens. His contributions are great. I do miss the voice of both pauls though. Great album.

  14. Andrea Mitchell

    I simply love this song. The whole album is fantastic but BG comes to mind often.

  15. Ian Barber

    Great song!
