​Shockwaves

This song is by David Knopfler and appears on the album Behind the Lines (1985).

Shockwave rider - coming through the eye of the storm
This outsider - needs you like he never did before
What's a man to do - only want to be with you
This moth to the flame, doing what he got to do.

Shockwave rider, - I'm flying in the Shockwave
Who could deny her, she'll take you to an early grave
Shockwave rider, - I'm flying in the Shockwave
I can't deny her - I love her in a thousand ways.

Listen, like the whispers of prayer she's come forth from the shadow
From the sacrificial altar in Convent Garden Square
The mountain deep, the path so narrow
You know you must follow your ambitions there

Then dropping like a stone she comes spinning from the sun
Holds you in her sights fingering her guns
She could have had you cold, something made her run
I think I'm dreaming, she's my only one

Shockwave rider - I'm flying in the Shockwave
I can't deny her - I love her in a thousand ways
Shockwave rider - I'm flying in the Shockwave
I can't deny her - I love her in a thousand ways

Shockwave rider - I'm flying in the Shockwave
Here beside her - so warm so safe
Shockwave rider - she says "I love you Dave"
Oh I'm riding in the Shockwave and I don't want to be saved
