Kiss The Dirt (Falling Down The Mountain)

Album: Listen Like Thieves (1985)
Charted: 54
  • Playing in the dirt
    We find the seeds of doubt
    Don't water them with your tears
    Don't think about all the years
    You'd rather be without

    Eden lets me in
    I find the seeds of love
    And climb upon the highwire
    I kiss and tell all my fears

    Falling down the mountain
    End up kissing dirt
    Look a little closer
    Sometimes it wouldn't hurt

    Playing in the dirt
    We find the seeds of fun
    And we scream like alley cats
    Tearing down what we attack
    To prove that we are one

    Cutting through the night
    And we find the seeds of lust
    And lose our minds on one intent
    These passions never seem to end Writer/s: ANDREW CHARLES FARRISS, MICHAEL KELLAND HUTCHENCE
