Showdown
Electric Light Orchestra Lyrics


She cried to the Southern wind
About a love that was sure to end
Every dream in her heart was gone
Heading for a showdown

Bad dreamer, what's your name?
Looks like we're riding on the same train
Looks as though there'll be more pain
There's gonna be a showdown
And it's raining, all over the world
It's raining, all over the world
Tonight, the longest night

She came to me like a friend
She blew in on the Southern wind
Now my heart is turned to stone again
There's gonna be a showdown

Save me, oh save me
It's unreal, the suffering
There's gonna be a showdown

And it's raining, all over the world
Raining, all over the world
Tonight, the longest night

Raining, raining
Raining, raining

Raining, all over the world
Raining, all over the world
The longest night

And it's raining, all over the world
Raining, all over the world
Tonight, the longest night

You gotta save me, girl
Well, I'm ready for saving
I'm a fool for you
Ya know I'm ready, yeah
Come on and save me

Can't you feel what you're doing to me, now?
I'm on the run again
Gotta save me

She cried to the southern wind
About a love that was sure to end
Every dream in her heart was gone
Headin' for a Showdown

Bad dreamer, what's your name
Looks like we're ridin' on the same train
Looks as through there'll be more pain
There's gonna be a Showdown

And it's rainin' all over the world
It's raining all over the world
Tonight, the longest night

She came to me like a friend
She blew in on a southern wind
Now my heart is turned to stone again
There's gonna be a Showdown

Save me, oh save me
It's unreal, the suffering
There's gonna be a Showdown

And it's rainin' all over the world
It's raining all over the world
Tonight, the longest night

Hi everyone, hope you enjoyed the song. This is a cookie-cutter comment that will be posted on all ELO videos on this channel. I recently received a copyright strike for 3 of the ELO videos on this channel, resulting in those videos being deleted. I fear the same thing may happen to other similar videos on this channel, which may result in the channel's deletion. Therefore, this video may get deleted either due to a copyright claim or by myself to prevent another copyright strike from affecting the channel. Obviously I don't want this to happen, so your thoughts about what to do will be helpful. Linked video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YLtYSOrH9o

@Silent Penguin what the hell is there after you tube? it certainly fails with the prove yer age criteria where any old skank can hack in to your account or use your personal details to pilfer - as i know to be the case... but for all and all stave off the boredom larks - you tube is ok.

@cnnw3929 Elo-Showdown 0920am 6/6/21 i dont mind ELO, either... and the band is kindda an admixture of beatles, dylan and classical rock... i can't think of a band like it... and yeah yer right - music to suit sunday morning, that's for sure... or lava flows in iceland.

Well, after 12 years, this video is still up. So there must be some good about all this. Perhaps Jeff Lynn wants this left to be. It's a wonderful tune that brings many to the memories of the mid 1970's. For some reason, this tune brings comfort that gives a sense of security, and perhaps well being with a bit of daydreaming and romance in a time of adversity. This is where it stays. It belongs here.
