Tunnel of Love Songtext

Getting crazy on the waltzers
But it's the life that I choose
Hey, sing about the six blade, sing about the switchback
And a torture tattoo
And I've been riding on a ghost train
Where the cars, they scream and slam
And I don't know where I'll be tonight
But I'd always tell you where I am

In a screaming ring of faces
I seen her standing in the light
She had a ticket for the races
Yeah, just like me, she was a victim of the night
I put my hand upon the lever
Said let it rock and let it roll
I had the one-arm bandit fever
There was an arrow through my heart and my soul


And the big wheel keep on turnin'
Neon burnin' up above
And I'm just high on the world
Come on and take a low ride with me girl
On the tunnel of love
Yeah, love

It's just a danger
When you're riding at your own risk
She said, "You are the perfect stranger"
She said, "Baby, let's keep it like this"
It's just a cakewalk, twisting baby, yeah, step right up and say
"Hey mister, give me two, give me two now
'Cause any two can play"

And the big wheel keep on turning
Neon burnin' up above
And I'm just high on the world
Come on and take a low ride with me, girl
On the tunnel of love
Oh love, love

Well it's been money for muscle on a another whirligig
Money for muscle and another girl I dig
Another hustle just to
Just to make it big and rock away, rock away
Oh rock away, rock away


And girl, it looks so pretty to me
Like it always did
Oh, like the Spanish city to me
When we were kids
Yeah, girl it looks so pretty to me
Just like it always did
Oh, like the Spanish city to me
When we were kids

Woh la!
Check it out

She took off her silver locket
She said, "Remember me by this"
She put her hand in my pocket
I got a keepsake and a kiss
And in the roar of dust and diesel
I stood and watched her walk away
I could have caught up with her easy enough
But something must have made me stay

And the big wheel keep on turning
Neon burnin' up above
And I'm just high on this world
Come on and take a low ride with me, girl
On the tunnel of love
Yea love, love

On the tunnel of love
Woah love, love

Yeah, now I'm searchin' through these carousels and the carnival arcades
Searching everywhere from steeplechase to palisades
In any shooting gallery where promises are made
To rock away, rock away
Rock away, rock away
From Cullercoats to Whitley bay
And to rock away

And, girl it looks so pretty to me
Like it always did
Like the Spanish city to me
When we were kids
Girl, it looks so pretty to me
Like it always did
Like the Spanish city to me
When we were kids
