Covenant: Tour De Force (1999)

Tour De Force

You burn the ground to hold your position.
You ran away if I came too close.
You kept track of balance and pressure,
All the dreams and desires.
I want some more.

Red...
Black...
Green for the jackpot.

Take you down,
I wanna take you down,
I wanna take you down with me.

We had the motion, we had the grace,
We had a sense of time and place.
We wrote the rules, we played the game,
And it would never be the same.
It was the beauty while we played.
We played to win but no one did.
We grew old, we moved ahead
From dance hall days for higher stakes.

You spun the wheel to keep my attention.
You danced away if I missed a beat.
You were queen of present and future,
I was king and cavalier
On our tour de force.

Red...
Black...
Green for the jackpot.

Take you down,
I wanna take you down,
I wanna take you down with me.

We had the motion, we had the grace,
We had a sense of time and place.
We wrote the rules, we played the game,
And it would never be the same.
It was the beauty while we played.
We played to win but no one did.
We grew old, we moved ahead
From dance hall days for higher stakes.


It's Alright

it's alright,
baby...
that's right,
baby...
it's alright...
you can take it...
it's alright...
