LISTENING

 

MUSIC

I wanna run, I want to hide

I wanna tear down the walls

That hold me inside.

I wanna reach out

And touch the flame

Where the streets have no name.

I wanna feel sunlight on my face.

I see the dust-cloud

Disappear without a trace.

I wanna take shelter

From the poison rain

Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name.

We’re still building and burning down love

Burning down love.

And when I go there

I go there with you

(It’s all I can do).

The city’s a flood, and our love turns to rust.

We’re beaten and blown by the wind

Trampled in dust.

I’ll show you a place

High on a desert plain

Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name.

We’re still building and burning down love

Burning down love.

And when I go there

I go there with you

(It’s all I can do).
