"The Main Thing" as written by Bryan Ferry....
Look at my hand
There's a soul on fire
You can lead me even higher
The main thing
Everybody knows

When a good thing's gone
You can really turn me on
The main thing

You run through here
With your words of sand
I can nearly understand
The main thing

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite songs by Roxy Music written by Ferry himself. It's very short in the lyrics, more like a poem than a song..as is typical of the Roxy later stuff. But it catches a mood and its a powerful raw song still.. the video to it done in Paris at night is great with Bryan in the shadows and checking out the nightlife looking for girls :-)
