"The Chauffeur (Duran Duran cover)" as written by Roger Andrew Taylor, John Taylor, Andy Taylor, Simon Le Bon and Nick Rhodes....
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 dew drops glisten, freshing your side

The sun slips down bedding heavy behind
The front of your dress all shadowy lined
And the droning engine throbs in time
With your beating heart
Sing Blue Silver

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 slips down bedding heavy behind
The front of your dress all shadowy lined
And the droning engine throbs in time
With your beating heart
Sing Blue Silver

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 word to stiffen brooding lies
But I'll only watch you leave me further behind

The sun slips down bedding heavy behind
The front of your dress all shadowy lined
And the droning engine throbs in time
With your beating heart
Sing Blue Silver

    General CommentI think it's actually about, literally, a chauffeur, who spends all his time driving this woman around who he's fallen in love with... they spend all this time together and she's even grown to love him ("and the droning engine throbs in time with your beating heart"), but she won't act on it because a) he's always there and she takes him for granted and b) he's a chauffeur... she obviously has a lot of money and he's a servant. He has to drive her to see her bf, and it burns him up that she's seeing him. But when she leaves and he picks her up, she's happy because she really loves him and the time they spend together (glass splinters lie so deep in your mind). He feels like he could completely wreck her relationship by pointing this all out to her (to tear out from your eyes with a word to stiffen brooding lies) but he knows that because of her being rich and him not, it'd be pointless because she'd never seriously consider him as a romance so he feels like it's pointless (i only watch you leave me further behind).
    Needless to say it's a pretty sad song. Great one though.

    General CommentDuran duran are Chino's favourite band. the song (deftones version) rocks! it's on the resedent evil 2 soundtrack. i think the song is about the chauffeur form his point of view, about having rich, beautiful and horny girls getting it on with each other in the back of a limo... well that's waht happens in the duran duran video anyway.

    General CommentThis is also Jon from Korn's faviorite song from Duran Duran. Duran Duran is okay, and this is the only song I really liked by them. Deftones did a damn good cover of it, too.
