"Hit Song" as written by and Paul Statham Peter Murphy....
Walking in the street
Breath the only friend
Strangers pass me by
I'm moving, moving with the wind
Inside me now, the gold
The gold at rainbow's end
Stranger to myself, a stranger
Stranger till the end
Behind the closed door
The one we painted green
To remind me of the perfect plan

Wash my face in fields of green
Take me to the stars for free
Point me to the high wire call
Wake me true and wake me all

Walk me in the streets
Take me, to a view on high
To an empire state
Tease, tease and bake me dry
Swerve and turn on me
Melt me, melt me to the wall
Like an unspent fortune, I'm running
Running with the call
Behind the closed door
The one we painted green
To remind me of a perfect plan

Wash my face
In fields of green
Take me to the stars for free
Point me to the high wire call
Wake me true and wake me all

    General CommentI love this song, Peter really turned on the vocals here. Not sure about the lyrics, perhaps a desire to get away from hectic city life?

    General CommentI think this is song about spirituality or the longing for spirituality when it seems that none exists any more. All of us have a calling, something that we were put here to do. There are those that discover what that calling is; there are those others that never do. What Pete is saying here probably is describing the saddness of feeling like you have no purpose or meaning for your life and the joy you feel at finally knowing your purpose. The chorus is what clues you in to the goal of the lyrics: "Wash my face in fields of green; Take me to the stars for free; Point me to the high wire call; Wake me true and wake me all." These lines are a plea to a spiritual being for help and guidance to help know what life's purpose is. There is always something more to life than what is in our immediate frame of reference; we just need to stop and look once and a while.

    Beautiful song and I loved it when I first heard it.
