Down in the Depths
Lisa Stansfield Lyrics


With a million neon rainbows burning below me,
And a million blazing taxis raising a roar,
Here I sit, above the town,
In my pet-palliated gown,
Down in the depths
On the ninetieth floor

While the crowds in all the nightclubs punish the parquet,
And the bars are packed with couples calling for more,
I'm deserted and depressed
In my regal-eagle mess,
Down in the depths
On the ninetieth floor

When the only one you wanted wants another,
What's the use of swank and cash in a bank galore?
Why, even the janitor's wife
Has a perfectly good love life,
And here am I, facing tomorrow,
Alone in my sorrow,
Down in the depths
On the ninetieth floor

Down in the depth
On the ninetieth floor
With a million neon rainbows burning below me

Best remake on the album and one of the best of her career. Lisa owns the song and takes it to a new level. Pure class.

I agree. I wish she would have done more like this. A wonderful song and a wonderfully talented voice.

REALLY annoyed that this isn't on Spotify. An amazing version of a really great song. I wore out that Red, Hot & Blue disc replaying this & the covers by Erasure, U2, K.D. Lang & Fine Young Cannibals.

72p being the cheapest - It's worth it just for this track but also check out The Jungle Brothers & Neneh Cherry cuts - ouch!!!!

Steve Brook

CD is cheap on www.discogs.com - I re bought it recently

This proved hands down that Lisa is indeed an artist for all ages from the first “RedHot & Blue” charity recalling Garland and Ross, divas of authenticity.

This song is beautiful, but it's also heart breaking ...
