Steel Wheels

This song is by David Knopfler and appears on the album Songs for the Siren (2006).

I hold out with haggard prayer
Hanging on to broken trust
Your twisted world my faithless girl
A mirage formed from guilt and dust
And my face against your honeyed hair
Flooding back in memories
Tongues exploring everywhere
Yeah I remember, I remember
Those shining hopes man once so real
Torn apart in whiskey seas
Effervescence, loss and lust
An open wound that never heals

And yeah them steel wheels turn and spin
That razor moon will consecrate my dreams
I'll be with you forever my beloved when
I'm your bleached boned Echo once again

All you've known is emptiness
You need my fix of perfect bliss
I've come close enough to this
To open up some sacred space
You're perfect girl with perfect grace
Oh my sweet Narcissus, blessed
My hands inside your cotton lace
I know you must remember this

And yes them steel wheels turn and spin
The burning sun will consecrate my sins
I'll be with you forever my siren
As your bleached boned Echo once again
