The city streets are wet again with rain
But I'm walking just the same
Skies turn to the usual gray
When you turn to face the day

Oh... and love don't show up in the pavement cracks
All my water colors fade to black
I'm going nowhere and I'm ten steps back
All my dreams are fallen flat

''Love don't show in the pavement cracks, oh...
There will be no turning back, oh...''

Time and space will pass us by and by
When we don't see eye to eye
I... would have done anything
For happiness to bring, oh...

But it don't show up in the pavement cracks
I can't even cover up my tracks
I'm going nowhere and I'm light years back
Ooh I wish you well

How come every day
I'm still waiting for the change?
How come I still say
Give me strength to live...

''Love don't show in the pavement cracks, oh...
There will be no turning back, oh...''

Where is my comfort zone?
A simple place to call my own
'Cause everything I wanna be
Comes crashing down on me, oh...

And it don't show up in the pavement cracks (it don't show up in the pavement cracks)
I can't even recognize my tracks (I can't even recognize my tracks)
You and I can't turn the whole thing back
Ooh I wish you well

''Love don't show in the pavement cracks, oh...
There will be no turning back, oh...''

Don't get me wrong - I like Annie. "Little Bird" is a fine song and she can belt out a few good numbahs too as well (Would I lie to you honeyyyy?) But putting Annie after Billie is just unfair! It's like listening to Copeland played after Mozart - Copeland is fantastic, but Mozart is like listening to a supreme entity. Billie at her best is like that too - it is probably best to just play some instrumental - some VERY GOOD instrumental. (Take Five for example ... hint, hint or Blue Rondo a la Turk ;) ) Sometimes music pairings are important - I bet Bill likes this because it supports the premise that doing a good job playing sets of music really makes being a DJ somewhat of a craft, if not an art. :sunny: - Riff
She just keeps getting better and better....
At first I thought it was Chris DeBurgh (of Don't Pay the Ferryman fame) singing! And in fact, the song does have a DeBurgh flavor (tone and harmonies) to it.
there is only one Annie; and thank God for her :notworthy:

Her new \'Bare\' is exquisite. Flowing tracks from start to finish. Great record, thanks RP! :hug: :clap:
I have never been able to get into Annie Lennox. There is something about her voice that sounds like nails on a chalkboard. Nothing personal against her, just expect me to turn down the volume when any of her songs are played.
This album is fantastic. I highly recommend clicking on the RP link to Amazon and buying it today!!
