"Santo Spirito Blues" (2011)

Dancing My Blues Away lyrics - Chris Rea


When I was a young boy
I hear my Mama cry
She say my poor little darling
He got tears in his eyes
I say don't worry Mama
I will get there one day
Till then I'm just dancing my blues away

She said your Papa's gone crazy
'Cos he don't understand
I say Mama I can't change it
'Cos it's just the way am
Yeah I was born in the north wind
In a sky of freezing grey
That's why I'm dancing my blues away

Now the years have gone by
But there's still a burning flame
You and me together
I know it's still the same

Now I got tears by the truck-load
I got a thousand broken hearts
But you'll always find me ready
To make a brand new start
'Cos I found a secret
So the devil he can't stay
I keep on dancing my blues away

Rock And Roll Tonight lyrics - Chris Rea

I got a thousand bits of paper
They all spinning in my head
I Hope I see you later
Can't remember what you said
Something 'bout keeping a grip
Keeping it tight
Before I lose control
I gotta rock and roll tonight

I got way too many questions
They all waiting on my call
I'm losing my direction
I'm dropping every ball
I've got to find some cover
These working shoes are getting too darn tight
I gotta loosen up
I gotta rock and roll tonight

Well you're bleeding for the money
But you never pay it back
Pressure gauge is screaming
The faces start to crack
This ain't no way to live
Lord you know this kind of life ain't right
Before I lose my soul
I got to rock and roll tonight

Never Tie Me Down lyrics - Chris Rea

I got a load of bad stuff
Laying heavy on my mind
I got a smile that sometimes
I find so hard to find
I got trouble
Chasing me every day
Too scared to look out
See what the bad sings say
Well you can beat up on my busted soul
Leave it bleeding on the ground
But oh Lord you ain’t ever gonna tie me down

I got the Devil
He follows me around
He keep coming
Chasing me from town to town
I got a two ton bag of lead
Slammin’ down on me
Well, peace and love
Oh baby that ain’t never coming near me
Beat my soul
Leave it bleeding chained and bound
But let me tell you
You ain’t never gonna chain me down
Oh Lord, never tie me down

You better look out
Cos I’m always gonna be around
I’ll tell you why, I’ll tell you why, why why
Oh Lord, you ain’t never gonna chain me down

The Chance Of Love lyrics - Chris Rea

I came here to dance
To show my face
To try and lose my blues
Find something to take its place

And I don't care about the moon
And the stars way above
Just give me something in my pocket
And the chance of love
Oh the chance of love

I've been out along the hard wire
Trying to make it pay
We all needing to get lucky
And a chance to come my way

And I don't care about the moon
And the stars way above
Just give me something in my pocket
And the chance of love
The chance of love
Oh the chance of love

Dress me up in pretty colours
Let everybody see
The only thing I'm needing
The only that sets you free...
...the chance of love

And i'm paying for an angel
Yeah I'm looking for a break
Seems nobody wants to give out
But everybody wants to take

So... I don't care about the moon
And the stars way above
Just give me something in my pocket
And the chance of love

Oh the chance of love
The chance of love

Oh the chance of love
The chance of love
Oh the chance of love
Something in my pocket
The chance of love
The chance of love
Oh the chance of love
Yeah the chance of love

The Last Open Road lyrics - Chris Rea

How fast can I run?
How far can I go?
These are the questions
The young wanna know
I met her in Brooklyn
She was coming from Queens
I said where are you going
She said where have you been
'Cos I'm trapped in here
Set me free
I know your world so
Let me see
Take me down that last open road

I know there's something
Past this place
I see it smile on your jagged ragged face
Something tells me
Something strong
There's a world I've heard of
So before it's gone
I know it's out there
I know it's true
I wanna feel it, I wanna go with you
Before it's over
Before it's gone
An endless highway and a freedom song
Take me down that last open road

Electric Guitar lyrics - Chris Rea

Got me an electric guitar
Don't she look so pretty
I got me an electric guitar
Oh don't she look so pretty
I bought her in a small town
I'm gonna take her to the city

I got me a box with a speaker
I'm gonna make that angel sing
I got me a box with a speaker
I'm gonna make that angel sing
I'm gonna find me a future
Somewhere between these strings

Every song about a railroad track
Every song about not coming back
We'll be together, no matter how far
You and me and my electric guitar

Money lyrics - Chris Rea

It's all about money
How much you can make
All about money
How much can take
The cold fear of losing
The game that you play
It's there in the morning
And the end of the day
It's all about money

It's all about dreaming
What you think that you need
You got your eye on the big one
But the truth you can't see
Till you find out what matters
At the end of the day
It's a deal with the devil, the price that you pay
It's all about money
It's all about money, what you think you can buy

But you're just chasing shadows
You got to ask yourself why
It's all about money

The Way She Moves lyrics - Chris Rea

See her coming down the catwalk
She all silk and high heel shoes
She dressed to kill anybody
This darling, she can't lose
She's a diamond in the night
She kick away those ageing blues
But it ain't what she's wearing
It's in the way she moves

She got a big red rooster tail
She got him crying like a child
He's got to have this angel
Oh she's gonna drive him wild
She got a see-true silk kimono
Oh I swear she's gonna blow some fuse

But it ain't what she's wearing
It's in the way she moves

She got a face to spin your head around
She got a smile you can't refuse
She got eyes that knock you over
This darling she can't lose
She got a see-true kimono
Or I swear she's gonna blow some fuse

But it ain't what she's wearing
It's the way she moves

Dance With Me All Night Long lyrics - Chris Rea

Come on dance with me baby
Dance me all night long
Yeah dance with me baby
Dance me all night long
Dance with baby
Till my blues have gone

When I move, I feel better
My soul cries out to the beat
It sends a message to my broken heart
It sends a message to my feet

Dance with me baby
Dance me all night long

I got to dance to stop my heart from breaking
I got to dance to save my soul
I got to dance to stop my legs from shaking
Standing still makes my blood run cold

Gimme a high-kick baby
'cos you got to have a good time
Moving to the beat
Make you feel so fine
No point in being low down
Standing in the cold
Come one, dance with me baby
Don't you know, you ain't never to old

I got to dance to stop my heart from breaking
I got to dance to save my soul
I got to dance to stop my legs from shaking
Standing still makes my blood run cold

Think Like A Woman lyrics - Chris Rea

I showed my love a river
And she took me to the sea
I showed my love my rusting chains
She set me free
I screamed out all the hate I had
She turned and flew around
I put down my wish to beat up
She came back to stay

She said, if you wanna be strong
And big like a mountain
There's something you gotta know
There's a way you gotta be
You make a big mistake
If you think all it takes to win me over
Set your self free
See like a woman see

I showed my love a mountain
And she took me to the sky
I showed my love a rain cloud
There were tears in her eyes
I opened up a long lost door
She smiled and let me in
She showed me how to never lose it
Is never try to win

She said, if you wanna be strong
And big like a mountain
There's something you gotta know
There's a way you gotta be
You make a big mistake
If you think all it takes to win me over
Set your self free
See like a woman see

You Got Lucky lyrics - Chris Rea

Don't go looking for a reason
There's nothing here to see
What you are, everything you done
Is how it all came to be
The telephone is ringing
But not for you
The angels keep on singing
But for somebody new
You threw away so much you had
There's no-one left to hear your call
And it's all because, you got lucky

You try to work it out
But you ain't got a clue
You try to find out
What everybody knew
You started to believe it
Now you find it hard to understand
How could you lose it
With such a winning had
Now there's no-one left
To care about you
If you should jump of fail
And it's all, because
You got lucky

Lose My Heart In You lyrics - Chris Rea

The morning came
With a heavy snow
Our senses freeze
'cos it's time to go
You smile and wave
As the taxi pulls away
But you cannot rid
What your eyes really say

Now I've made up my mind
I know what I gotta do
I'm going to lose, my heart, in you
A restless soul, always
Wild and free
We are such different kinds
This sure ain't easy for me
To be without you
Is to lose the game
So I will surrender
I will make the change

Now I've made up my mind
I know what I gotta do
I'm going to lose, my heart, in you

To be what's me
Would have to let you go
But all I'd be
Is a shadow, in this cold and freezing snow

So now I've made up my mind
I know what I gotta do
I'm going to lose, my heart, in you

I Will Go On lyrics - Chris Rea

I got a cold grey morning
Waiting for me
I look out my window
Sure don't like what I see
Seems like to devil himself
Is singing my song
But I pick myself yo
And I will go on

Black dogs are howling
In the wind and the rain
Seems like the devil himself
Is calling my name

But I can never give up
No matter how long
So I pick myself up
And I will go on

There's thunder on the mountain
There's a wild storm a sea
But when I think of your sweet love
It means nothing to me

So I will never give up
No matter how long
I pick myself up

And I will go on
