Tunnel of Love Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Getting crazy on the waltzers
But it's the life that I choose
Sing about the sixblade
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'll 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 a 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, yeah love

It's just a danger, danger
And when you're riding at your own risk
She said "You are the perfect stranger"
She said "Baby just keep it like this"

It's just a cakewalk twisting baby
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 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, oooh love

Well it's been money for muscle on a another whirligig
Money for muscle and a another girl I dig
Another hustle just to, just to make it big
And rockaway, you rockaway, oh rockaway, rockaway

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

Check it out

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 this world
Come on and take a low ride with me girl
On the tunnel of love, yeah love, love, love
On the tunnel of love, ooh love, 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 rockaway, rockaway, rockaway, rockaway
From Cullercoats and Whitley Bay out to rockaway

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