"The Chauffeur ft. Kirsty Hawkshaw" as written by and Angelo Badalamenti....
Out on the tar plains, the glides are moving
All looking for a new place to drive
You sit beside me, so newly charming
Sweating dewdrops glisten, freshing your side

The sun drips down bedding heavy behind
The front of your dress, all shadowy lined
And the droning engine throbs in time
With your beating heart

Way down the lane away, living for another day
The aphids swarm up in the drifting haze
Swim, seagull, in the sky
Towards that hollow western isle
My envied lady holds you fast in her gaze

The sun drips down bedding heavy behind
The front of your dress, all shadowy lined
And the droning engine throbs in time
With your beating heart
With your beating heart

Sing blue silver
With your beating heart

And watching lovers part, I feel you smiling
What glass splinters lie so deep in your mind
To tear out from your eyes
With a thought to stiffen brooding lines
And I'll only watch you leave me further behind

The sun drips down bedding heavy behind
The front of your dress, all shadowy lined
And the droning engine throbs in time
With your beating heart
With your beating heart
(The front of your dress, all shadowy lined
And the droning engine throbs in time)
With your beating heart

Sing blue silver
With your beating heart

    General CommentThis is a fantastic cover of the Duran Duran song. Kirsty's voice is so ethereal and haunting. I think the singer is speaking about the end of a relationship, knowing that she'll leave him but yet life goes on around him and the only thing that betrays her emotions is her heartbeat.
