Secret Oktober

Duran Duran


Wise on a birthday party
in a world
full of surprising fireworks
and sudden silence

Lies on a stranger's bed
the new day breaks
like a speeding train
on an old friend
ever expected,
but never knocking

Holding your own
in a battered car
All night parties
cocktail bars
and smile
when the butterfly escapes
the killing jar

Chorus:
Sure eyes awake
before the dancing is over
Wise or naked in
Secret Oktober

Freefall
on a windy morning shore--
nothing but a fading track
of footsteps, to prove
that you'd ever been there

Spoken
on a cotton cloud
like the sound of gunshot
taken by the wind
and lost in distant thunder

Racing
on a shining plane
Tomorrow won't be content
to watch as the lightning
plays along the wires,
and you'll wonder...

(chorus x2)
