    Lyrics

    Chased you out of this world, didn't mean to stop
    I turned around and suddenly you where gone
    Like some bird from paradise, the fire and ice
    We turned around and suddenly you where gone, gone, gone
    And now summer burns a hole inside and years are golden once again
    My thoughts return to you my dear young friend

    Oh come this way
    Will you look down this way
    I go down on the street
    Where the wild wind's blowing
    Here comes a hurricane

    I say come down this way
    Will you look down this way
    I need you tonight
    I need you around me

    I'm looking through the windows
    And my mind goes in a whirl
    Well there's a multitude of candles
    Burning in the windows of this world
    I'm looking at the colours
    Checking out the straights
    I'm counting out the numbers
    Will tomorrow never change?

    Still I hear you and I love you
    And I'll follow you elsewhere
    And I'll remember this occasion
    I'll remember being aware

    'Cause we've got panic in the evening
    We've got fall-out in the streets
    And I hear you and I follow you
    And I'll call out and I'll say
    That I can hear your sister call out
    And I hear her call your name
    They're calling sweet surrender
    And things won't be the same
    And don't you think that I don't care
    And don't you think that I don't know
    And don't you hear them calling out
    In a place not far from here

    And I hear big wheels are turning
    Some things are not to fear
    They say this is the time and place
    They call street fighting years

    And I hear great wheels are turning
    And I tell you not to fear
    They say this is the time and place
    They call street fighting years

    And I love you, I look for you
    And I walk to you, I walk to you
    And I hear big wheels are turning
    Is there no way out of here?
    They'll be calling out tomorrow
