INXS - X (1990)



Suicide Blonde

Don't you know what you're doing
You've got a death wish

Suicide blonde
Suicide blonde
Suicide blonde
Suicide blonde

Suicide blonde was the color of her hair
Like a cheap distraction for a new affair
She knew it would finish before it began
Wow baby I think you lost the plan

You want to make her suicide blonde
Love devastation suicide blonde
You want to make her suicide blonde
Love devastation suicide blonde

She stripped to the beat but her clothes stay on
White light everywhere but you can't see a thing
Such a squeeze
A mad sad moment
Glory to you
Glory to you

Take me there
Take me there

Got some revelation
Put into your hands
Save you from your misery like rain across the land
Don't you
see the color of deception
Turning your world around again
That's the story


Disappear

Say I'm crying

I'm looking at what's on TV

Pain and suffering

And the struggle to be free

It can't ever be denied

And I never will ignore

But when I see you coming

I can take it all

You're so fine

Lose my mind

And the world seems to disappear

All the problems

All the fears

And the world seems to disappear

Say you're mine

And give yourself to the feelings that you know

I'm needing all that you can give me

All the things that you do so well

Words are healing

Sweet anticipation

Making spells as the shadows close in

Fall across all our yesterdays

Say if I could

Look into myself and reason

But I could never never see

Or make sense of the dealings

Turn around

Am I looking at salvation

Make me realize all that I am

You put the light inside this man


The Stairs


In a room above a busy street
The echoes of a life
The fragments and the accidents
Separated by incidents
Listened to by the walls

We share the same spaces
Repeated in the corridors
Performing the same movements

Story to story
Building to building
Street to street
We pass each other

Story to story
Building to building
Street to street
We pass each other

Listened to by the walls
We share the same spaces
Repeated in the corridors
Performing the same movements

The nature of your tragedy is chained around your neck
Do you lead or are you led
Are you sure that you don't care
There are reasons here to give your life
And follow in your way

The passion lives to keep your faith
Though all are different all are great
Climbing as we fall
We dare to hold on to our fate
And steal away our destiny
To catch ourselves with quiet grace

Story to story
Building to building
Street to street
We pass each other on the stairs
Listened to by the walls
We share the same spaces
Repeated in the corridors
Performing the same movements

Story to story
Building to building
Street to street
We pass each other on the stairs


Faith in Each Other

 

All the people in this world

All the people in this world

I gotta tell you

It's alright

Look at the cover if a magazine

The pride of a nation

They're down on their knees

I got to tell you

Let the people speak

I got to tell you

All you got to have is faith in each other

All you got to have is faith in each other

They give us a reason to go on living

It's all in the choices that you have to make

I got to tell you

You better make them good

I got to tell you

All the people in this world

All the people in this whole wide world

I got to tell you

Let the people speak

I got to tell you


By My Side

In the dark of night
Those small hours
Uncertain and anxious

I need to call you
Rooms full of strangers
Some call me friend
But I wish you were so close to me
In the dark of night
Those small hours
I drift away when I'm with you
In the dark of night

By my side
In the dark of night
By my side
I wish you were
I wish you were

Here comes the clown
His face is a wall
No window
No air at all

In the dark of night
Those faces they haunt me
But I wish you were so close to me
In the dark of night
Those faces they haunt me

But I wish you were so close to me
Yes I wish you were
By my side


Lately


I never knew much
Enough was enough
The reasons were not always there
But the look in your eyes hides that surprise
I would never have counted on this

Well lately
You look around
You're wondering what you're doing
Yeah lately
You look around
You're wondering what you're seeing
What you're doing

The taste of your freedom
Was sweeter than love
'Cause you never had a chance to live

Your blue sky calls
To seduce and bewitch
And give you the wings of your fate


Who Pays the Price

 

Yes it's dark sometimes

When the people are shoving

Pushing you into the ground

And you cry in the daylight

With the sun in your eyes

Even though you know you're not alone

And it's all been felt before

You stare through your window

And wonder if there's gonna be more

It brings you down

It's like a war

Who pays the price

If you want more

It's the quiet desperatio

n of a million lives

Gonna make you change your ways

We got everything we wanted

But forgot how we got it

Just can't paint it golden anyway

And the strength of all you're giving

Is gonna make the changes

Tomorrow's gonna bring a new day

As the years go by

Will it show on your face

Or stay hidden behind some door

Yeah you made your resolutions

With the will of a priest

But you're not so sure anymore

And the reasons why you're living

Keep changing

Every time you find a key you find more


Know the Difference

 

You're driving all over town

In your big car

Windows down

Your sweet perfume trails behind

The impression is in my mind

It's crazy how much I ache

For the moments we could make

Your girlfriends they like to talk

Yeah they told me about your boy

What you do and what you say

Do you know the difference anyway

Could I show you what's in store

'Cause I know you'll be wanting more

You're the kind of girl who knows

What she wants and where it goes

You got instinct

You got class

Why don't you leave tha

t guy on his ass

Good intentions are not enough

We should join hands and rise above


Bitter Tears

 

In the midst of my endless search

The best in life becomes clear

And the rest just begins to fade by itself

That's a trick I learnt though it took so long

Bitter tears taste so sweet

I'm seeing my way for the first time in years

When the love around begins to suffer

And you can't find love in one

In one another

Push away those bitter tears

Bitter tears

And I thought I was doing no wrong

No wrong

And I thought I was doing no wrong

No wrong

In the hour of your needs

Lips are trembling

'Cause you're gonna be free

Realize what we're doing here

The time is right to kill your fears


On My Way

Shake make it forever

Curling from your lips

Faith and it's not over

Bring on that famous word

Love don't abuse it

And you'll never be sad again

I'm on my way

I'm on my way

Blood's getting hotter

Thinking about your hips

I feel all the hunger

The minute you turn away

I think it's getting better

But I can't

wait another day

Make all your wishes

No sooner said than done

Here I come like I told you

Whether by land or sea

She said this is the real thing

'Cause you're never gonna find the door


Hear That Sound

 

So your time has come
Children watch the fools
Don't let anyone tell you
What you must do

Do you like what you see
Or does it make you cry
Use your imagination
And start a fire

Hear that sound
There's a voice to be found
Making changes go 'round
Hear that sound

And my selfish ways
Disappeared one day
With the realization
Of a new way

Images of the free
Coming into view
Our hearts full of promises
Of all we can do
