for you
(marr, sumner, bartos)

can we meet on the street, maybe tomorrow

see the world at our feet, naked and hollow

i’ll lead the climb, crystal and fine, for you to see

with every step that i take, every rule that you make



stay with me in this foreign land

just long enough for me to make you understand

you could be my guiding light, the darkest of them all

you’d be the rise before my fall



and yet we both get along fine

better than most, some of the time

when i’m with you i am on fire

you are the fuel and my desire



can we meet on the street, maybe tomorrow

see the world at our feet, naked and hollow

i’ll lead the climb, crystal and fine, for you to see

with every step that i take, every rule that you make



why do you bring what i can’t possess?

you always ask for more until there’s nothing left

these hollow words make a wrong arrest

they beat upon my door, a spirit haunts for evermore



but still i hope and sometimes i pray

it won’t be hard, we’ll find a way

colour my dream, show me i’m real

turn on the light then let me feel



can we meet on the street, maybe tomorrow

see the world at our feet, naked and hollow

i’ll lead the climb, crystal and fine, for you to see

with every step that i take, every rule that you make



can we meet on the street, maybe tomorrow

see the world at our feet, naked and hollow

i’ll lead the climb, crystal and fine, for you to see

with every step that i take, every rule that you make

comment
johnny marr has said that he was striving for an ennio morricone feel to the guitar solo on this sunny, upbeat song, issued as the second single from raise the pressure. although a song like second nature might have been a more representative choice to complement the first single forbidden city, it did reach a respectable number 16 in the uk, backed by all that i need and i feel alright. oddly, the single mix is longer than the album version; the promo edit is perhaps the best one overall. their most feelgood track.
