Nik Kershaw – The Riddle – 1984

    Paroles

    I’ve got two strong arms
    blessings of babylon
    with time to carry on and try
    for sins and false alarms
    so do america the brave
    wise men save

    Near a tree by a river
    there’s a hole in the ground
    where an old man of Aran
    goes around and around
    and his mind is a beacon
    in the veil of the night
    for a strange kind of fashion
    there’s a wrong and a right
    he’ll never, never fight over you

    I got plans for us
    nights in the scullery
    and days instead of me
    i only know what to discuss
    of for anything but light
    wise men fighting over you

    It’s not me you see
    pieces of valentine
    with just a song of mine
    to keep from burning history
    seasons of gasoline and gold
    wise men fold

    Near a tree by a river
    there’s a hole in the ground
    where an old man of aran
    goes around and around
    and his mind is a beacon
    in the veil of the night
    for a strange kind of fashion
    there’s a wrong and a right
    but he’ll never, never fight over you

    I got time to kill
    sly looks in corridors
    without a plan of yours
    a blackbird sings on bluebird hill
    thanks to the calling of the wild
    wise mens child.

    Near a tree by a river
    there’s a hole in the ground
    where an old man of Aran
    goes around and around
    and his mind is a beacon
    in the veil of the night
    for a strange kind of fashion
    there’s a wrong and a right
    he’ll never, never fight over you

    Near a tree by a river
    there’s a hole in the ground
    where an old man of Aran
    goes around and around
    and his mind is a beacon
    in the veil of the night
    for a strange kind of fashion
    there’s a wrong and a right
    he’ll never, never fight over you
    no, he’ll never, never fight over you
