Burning Down One Side
Robert Plant Lyrics


Slipped through the window by the back door
Caught short in transit with my love
Jumped up, fell back, cut off from romance
How could I fall without a shove?
Tiptoe like thunder on my feelings
You rock me gently with your sighs
My knees are week, my head is reeling
Consumed by fire in your eyes

(Dont'cha know why, goodness no! Why?)
Stepped in and shattered my defenses
Just playin' hookey with my heart
Slipped through the window by the back door
And took the keys to my poor heart

Yes my poor heart
Try as I might, try as I may
Well I'd try anything to make you stay
'cause I need your love, yes I need your love
Ooh I need your love, yes I need your love
I'm lookin' high, I'm lookin' low
Tryin' to find where did my baby go
Gotta find out why she ran away
I don't know where did my baby stay
Try as I might, try as I may
Well I'd try anything to make you stay

Just find that Boulevard d'amour
Shoot through a neon in the night
Hot-foot through alleys, check the doorways
Try that old parking lot on 9th
There's 3-course-kissing in the same way
Oh but that don't help me none no more
I've been away too long and dreaming
Little girl ain't I seen you before?

Oh little girl

Slipped through the window by the back door
Caught short in transit with my love
Jumped up, fell back, cut off from romance
How could I fall without a shove?
Tip-toed like thunder on my feelings
You rock me gently with your sighs
My knees are weak, my head is reeling
Consumed by the fire in your eyes
Don'tcha know why? Goodness, no! Why?

Stepped in & shattered my defenses
Just playing hooky with my heart
Slipped through the window by the back door
And took the keys to my poor heart
Yes, my poor heart

Try as I might, try as I may
Yes, I'll try anything to make you stay 'cuz
I need your love, yes, I need you love
Yes, I need your love, oh, I need you love

I'm looking high, I'm looking low
Can't find where did my baby go
Gotta find out why she ran away
I don't know, where did my baby stay?

Try as I might, try as I may
I'll try anything to make you stay

(Robbie Blunt guitar solo)

Fire down the Boulevard d'Amour
Shoot through the neon in the night
Hotfoot through alleys, check the doorways
Try that old parking lot on Ninth
There's three-course kissing in the same place
Oh, but that don't help me out no more
I've been away so long & dreaming
Little girl, ain't I seen you before?
Hey, little girl



Mr Spawnlord

Slipped through the window by the back door
Caught short in transit with my love
Jumped up, fell back, cut off from romance
How could I fall without a shove?
Tiptoe like thunder on my feelings
You rock me gently with your sighs
My knees are week, my head is reeling
Consumed by fire in your eyes

Stepped in and shattered my defenses
Just playin' hookey with my heart
Slipped through the window by the back door
And took the keys to my poor heart

Yes my poor heart
Try as I might, try as I may
Well I'd try anything to make you stay
'cause I need your love, yes I need your love
Ooh I need your love, yes I need your love
I'm lookin' high, I'm lookin' low
Tryin' to find where did my baby go
Gotta find out why she ran away
I don't know where did my baby stay
Try as I might, try as I may
Well I'd try anything to make you stay

Just find that Boulevard d'amour
Shoot through a neon in the night
Hot-foot through alleys, check the doorways
Try that old parking lot on 9th
There's 3-course-kissing in the same way
Oh but that don't help me none no more
I've been away too long and dreaming
Little girl ain't I seen you before?

Oh little girl



Ed Norton

Slipped through the window by the back door
Caught short in transit with my love
Jumped up, fell back, cut off from romance
How could I fall without a shove?

Tiptoe like thunder on my feelings
You rock me gently with your sighs
My knees are weak, my head is reeling
Consumed by the fire in your eyes
Don't ya know I could do so I...
Stepped in and shattered my defenses
Just playin' hookey with my heart
Slipped through the window by the back door
And took the keys to my poor heart
Yes my poor heart

Oh..Try as I might, try as I may
Cause I'd do anything to make you stay
'cause I need your love, I need your love
Yes I need your love, yes I need your love
I'm lookin' high, I'm lookin' low
Can't find where did my baby go
Gotta find out why she ran away
I don't know where did my baby stay

Try as I might, try as I may
Well I'd try anything to make you stay

Just find that Boulevard d'amour
Shoot through the neon in the night
Hot-foot through alleys, check the doorways
Try that old parking lot on 9th
There's 3-course-kissing in the same place
Oh but that don't help me none no more
I've been away so long I'm dreaming
Little girl ain't I seen you before?

Phil Collins' drumming on this album is nothing short of bombastic..

Laura Llama

Phil beatin them drums like they owe him money.

Brett Schneider

Diego Canale yeah I agree he should have sit that one out😎

The Truth Hurts

The bombastic parts are Cozy Powell

Diego Canale

you can hear the gated drums effect throughout the song. a trademark of his 80s albums. He used that effect before recording this in the genesis albums duke, abacab and a Peter Gabriel album. Pity he fucked up the live aid gig with the Zeppelin.
