Marquee Moon
Television Lyrics


I remember
Ooh, how the darkness doubled
I recall
Lightning struck itself

I was listening
Listening to the rain
I was hearing
Hearing something else

Life in the hive puckered up my nights
A kiss of death, the embrace of life
Ooh, there I stand 'neath the Marquee Moon
Just waiting

I spoke to a man down at the tracks
And I ask him
How he don't go mad
He said, "Look here, junior, don't you be so happy
And for heaven's sake, don't you be so sad"

Life in the hive puckered up my night
The kiss of death, the embrace of life
Ooh, there I stand 'neath the Marquee Moon
Hesitating

Well, the Cadillac
It pulled out of the graveyard
Pulled up to me
All they said, "Get in, get in"
Then the Cadillac
It puttered back into the graveyard
Me, I got out again

Life in the hive puckered up my night
A kiss of death, the embrace of life
Over there I stand 'neath the Marquee Moon
But I ain't waiting, uh-uh

I remember
How the darkness doubled
I recall
Lightning struck itself

I was listening
Listening to the rain
I was hearing
Hearing something else

Clearly the strokes were influenced by television. Damn even 30 years later this band still sounds amazing schick.

​@lefkytheshin 'The best music ever made happened before 1980' well.. i understand your point, but allow me to disagree.. main branches maybe.. but we were blessed with amazing music after 1980... don't imprision yourself in your own box, please.. so many great music mankind is producing everyday... you just have to find it in the middle of so much trash, that they try to feed us nowadays..
