      About "Tunnel Of Love"

      Lyrics for Dire Straits - "Tunnel Of Love"

      Getting crazy on the waltzers but it's the life that I choose
      Sing about the six blade sing about the switchback and a torture tattoo
      And I 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 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 turning neon burning 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

      It's just the 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 step right up and say
      Hey mister give me two give me two 'cause any two can play

      And the big wheel keep on turning neon burning 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

      Well it's been money for muscle another whirligig
      Money for muscle another girl I dig
      Another hustle just to make it big
      And rock away rock away

      And girl it looks so pretty to me just like it always did
      Like the Spanish city to me when we were kids
      Oh girl it looks so pretty to me just like it always did
      Like the Spanish city to me when we were kids

      She took off a 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 burning 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

      And now I'm searching 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 from Cullercoats and Whitley bay out 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
