"Passion Play" as written by and Jack Blades....
In a backstreet bar
On the south side of town
Where the music never stops
And the sun never hangs around
Never hangs around

Yeah, two lovers meet
And their eyes feel the heat
Well they're moving to the sound
And their feet never touch the ground
Never touch the ground

Passion play
It's a game to take your breath away
Passion play
It's a game to take your breath away
Passion play

She feels kinda shy
As she turns on the make
She's got the inside moves
Always gets what she means to take
And she takes a taste

Well it feels kinda loose
As she ties the noose
He's got the front runner on him
And nothing but his luck to lose
And that's a lot to lose

Passion play
It's a game to take your breath away
Passion play
It's a game to take your breath away
Passion play
It's just a passion play

Works up a sweat
And it's all for effect
As she takes another drag
Off her cigarette

He'll never really know
Her feelings never show
She's cut him down to size
With the fire in her eyes

Nowhere to run
Nothing to say
Is there any other way
Than to call it on a passion play

In a backstreet bar
On the south side of town
Where the music never stops
And the sun never hangs around
Never hangs around

Yeah, two lovers die
As the passion hits their eyes
Moving to the sound
And their feet never touch the ground
Never touch the ground, yeah

Passion play
It's a game to take your breath away
Passion play
It's a game to take your breath away

Passion play
It's a game to take your breath away
Passion play
It's a game to take your breath away

    General CommentI used to get chills at this guitar solo, I was just learning and could not believe that such a simple use of bent notes and sustain could bring such emotion.
    This solo and the frequent listening to Buck Dharma of BOC changed the way I played forever.
