Eurythmics Savage Lyrics

I love to listen to

 

take a girl like that

and put her in a natural setting

like a cafe for example

along comes the boy

and he’s looking for trouble

with a girl like that

with a girl like that

who knows what they’ll decide to do

who knows what they’ll get up to

i’d love to know

wouldn’t you

 

i love to listen to beethoven

 

you think you know just what you want

but you have used that weapon against me

did i tell you i was lying by the way

when i said i wanted a new mink coat

i was just thinking about something sleek

to wrap around my tender throat

i was dreaming like a texan girl

a girl who thinks she’s got the right to everything

a girl who thinks she should have something extreme

 

I’ve got a lover back in Japan

He’s got tatooes

He’s my Superman

I try to cal him up from time to time

We can talk about the weather

Is the weather fine?

 

And I say break, break

Break away those ties

Break, break.

 

I’ve got a lover

Up in outer space

He’s been tumbling around

All over the place

I like to call him from time to time

We can talk about heaven…

 

Break, break

Break away those ties

Break, break…

 

When the whole world descends on me

I’ll be waiting for you…

 

Got another lover in Timbuktu

Got a name for him

He’s my little guru.

When I don’t call him he starts to cry

I have to tell him stories just to pacify.

 

Break, break…

 

When the whole world descends on me

I’ll be waiting for you…

 

I was bitter when I met you

I was eloquent with rage

Like honey from a poisoned cup

I flowed from stage to stage.

(Ooh… sugar baby… sing me a lullaby.)

Japanese baby…

 

Yea… oh yea… yea…

Do you want to break-up?

 

I’ve got a heavy heart

Got heart filled full of lead.

Pocket full of heartache

(Car crash in my head).

I’ve got a steady hand

Gonna lead me to my home.

Take me up to heaven

(Heaven’s where I’m goin’)…

 

Yea… oh yea… yea…

Do you want to break-up?

 

I’ve seen trouble

I looked right up to its face

Never tried to turn away.

And I’ve been sad

I’ve been overjoyed

So let me disembrace you now

My little trouble boy…

 

Yea… oh yea… yea…

Do you want to break-up?

 

You took me to the ocean

Dropped me like a stone.

Took me to the deep blue ocean.

I don’t wanna stay there baby

I don’t wanna swim alone

 

Yea… oh yea… yea…

Do you want to break-up?

 

you have placed a chill in my heart

 

take me to the desert where there’s got to be

a whole heap of nothing for you and me

take me to the desert take me to the sand

show me the colour of your right hand

 

love is a temple love is a shrine

buy some love at the five and dime

a little bit of love from the counter store

get it on credit if you need some more

i’ll be the figure of your disgrace

a criss cross pattern upon your face

a woman’s just too tired to think

about the dirty old dishes in the kitchen sink

i wish i was invisible so i could climb through the telephone

when it hurts my ear when it hurts my brain

and it makes me feel too much too much too much too much

cause i’m much too tall

to feel that small

don’t cut me down when i’m talking to you

 

love is a temple love is a shrine

love is pure and love is blind

love is a religious sign

i’m gonna leave this love behind

love is hot and love is cold

i’ve been bought and i’ve been sold

love is rock and love is roll

i just want someone to hold

 

hold me now now

hold me now baby

come on yea

you have placed a chill in my heart

make me feel it

come on now

Shame

now there’s a lifestyle with painted lips

now there’s a lifestyle everybody wants it but it don’t exist

and i said shame in the dancehalls and the cinema

shame on the tv and the media

shame we loved you

 

now there’s a lifestyle with fashion chic

now there’s a lifestyle everybody in it wants to be elite

and i said you with yer brand new shoes

you with yer greasy hair

and you with yer mother’s pride and poetry

don’t you want to feel the shame

 

in the dancehalls

can’t you feel the shame

and the tv

can’t you feel the shame

we loved you

shame

 

shame at the lido and the opera

shame at the races and the theatre

shame we loved you

and they said

all we need is love

we loved you

all we need is love

with the beatles

and the rolling stones

 

day after day

in the dancehalls

Words of power are killing me

While the sun displays its teeth.

All mockery is laughing

All violence is cheap.

She said…

“These are my guns

These are my furs

This is my living room.”

“You can play with me there sometimes

If you catch me in the mood.”

Savage

Savage

Savage

You savage…

 

She said…

“I have this unhappiness

To wear around my neck.”

“It’s a pretty piece of jewellery

To show what I protect.”

She said…

“Everything is fiction

All cynic to the bone.”

“So don’t ask me to stay with you

Don’t ask to see me home.”

Savage

Savage

Savage

You savage…

I don’t care if you won’t

Talk to me

You know I’m not that kind of girl.

And I don’t care if you won’t

Walk with me

It don’t give me such a thrill.

And I don’t care about the way you look

You should know I’m not impressed

‘Cause there’s just one thing

That I’m looking for

And he don’t wear a dress.

 

I need a man…

I need a man…

 

Baby baby baby

Don’t you shave your legs

Don’t you double comb your hair

Don’t powder puff

Just leave it rough

I like your fingers bare.

When the night comes down

I can turn it round

I can take you anywhere.

I don’t need love

Forget that stuff

You know that I don’t care

 

I need a man…

I need a man…

 

I don’t need a heartbreaker

Fifty-faced trouble maker

Two timing time taker

Dirty little money maker

Muscle bound cheap skate

Low down woman hater

Triple crossing double dater

Yella bellied alligator…

 

I don’t care if you won’t

Talk to me

You know I’m not that kind of girl.

And I don’t care if you won’t

Walk with me

It don’t give me such a thrill.

And I don’t care about the way you look

You should know I’m not impressed

‘Cause there’s just one thing

That I’m looking for

And he don’t wear a dress.

Take me to a dark room

And hug me to bits

I just wanna be kissed so badly

Right there

On my lips…

 

Put the blame on me

Put the blame on me

 

Why did you close your eyes

When I’m the one that’s blind?

Why did you close your eyes?

That was too unkind…

 

Where are you tonight?

Are you sleeping on your own?

I need to know

Where you are tonight?

Are you sleeping on your very own?

Tell the one that’s lying with you

To get right up and go back home.

 

Put the blame on me

Put the blame on me…

 

That’s right…

That’s right…

 

Heaven

 

I love to

 

Just what you need

 

Heaven

 

Takes a little time

 

She was a wide eyed girl In a purple dress

She could have been good

She could have been the best

Shy little girl

When it came to the test

Wow oh

She was a cut above the rest

She was a wide eyed girl

With teased up hair

She could have had money

But she didn’t care

She was lookin’ for you daddy

Never there

Lookin’ for you daddy Oh yeah yeah

 

Wide eyed girl

Wide eyed girl

Wide eyed girl

Wide eyed girl

 

She was a wide eyed girl Of a tender age

Just movin’ out of her Sensitive phase

She said “I love you baby it’s for always

And I don’t care What the teacher says”

When she walked out Through the streets of Rome

All of the Italians Wanna take her home

All the brown little babies

With the slicked back hair Sayin’,

“Prima amore”

Wow

 

I’m sayin’ somethin’

Are ya listening to me?

Don’t you walk away when

I’m Communicatin’ with you (Wide eyed)

She’s goin’ clickin’ clackin’

Down the road

In them high heeled shoes (Wide eyed)

Oh, oh no (Wide eyed girl)

Mona Lisa

Wide eyed girl

Wide eyed girl

Wide eyed girl

 

 

I need you to pin me down

Just for one frosen moment.

I need someone to pin me down

So I can live in torment.

I need you to really feel

The twist of my back breaking

I need someone to listen

To the ecstacy I’m faking.

I need you you you

 

I need you to catch each breath

That issues from my lips

I need someone to crack my skull

I need someone to kiss.

So hold me now

And make pretend

That I won’t ever fall

Oh hold me down

I’m gonna be your baby doll

 

I need you you you…

Is it you I really need?

I do I do I do

I really do

I need you…

Six o’clock in the morning

And I’m stepping through the streets

The pavement’s cold and empty

Got the blues beneath my feet.

Big old sun is rising up

So elegant and thin

Another day is over

So a new day will begin

And the word said hey…

It’s a brand new day

 

Oh baby baby baby

I dreamed about you

Please tell me tell me tell me

What I’ve seen could not be true

You have taken my existance

You have filled it full of stones

You have turned into a stranger

Now I need to walk alone

 

But I won’t be said

But I won’t be destroyed…

 

And the word said

Hey… it’s a brand new day.
