Radio Silence
Thomas Dolby Lyrics


Caroline
Makes the final adjustments
In her rear,view mirror
She's nervous and tense
But she's thinking it over
With logic and sense
She'll overcome her phobia
Oh to paint her eyes so red and her lips so blue
Carve her legend on the bow
Caroline four, five, two
When they come to call for her I will be there too
Observe Radio Silence observe
Radio Silence observe Radio Silence
Maintain Radio Silence thoughout

Now where can he be?
What's wrong with the parking meter?
What's happening to me?
She'll burst a blood vessel if he doesn't show
She's caught up in traffic
And I'm on her radio
Oh to paint her eyes so red and her lips so blue
Raise her likeness on the mast
Caroline four, five, two
When they come to call for her, I will be there too

She tune in till the tune suits her right
She tune in till the dial come alright
She tune the dial till the needle is in the white
Tune in tonight
Tune in tonight
Tune in tonight
Try to think of nothing

Caroline
Makes the final adjustments
In her rear-view mirror
She's nervous and tense
But she's thinking it over
With logic and sense
She'll overcome her phobia
Oh to paint her eyes so red and her lips so blue
Carve her legend on the bow - Caroline four-five-two
When they come to call for her I will be there too
Observe Radio Silence observe
Radio Silence observe Radio Silence
Maintain Radio Silence throughout
Now where can he be?
What's wrong with the parking meter? What's happening to me?
She'll burst a blood vessel if he doesn't show
She's caught up in traffic
And I am on her radio
Oh to paint her eyes so red and her lips so blue
Raise her likeness on the mast, Caroline four-five-two
When they come to call for her, I will be there too

She tune in till the tune suits her right
She tune in till the dial come alight
She turn the dial till the needle is in the white
Tune in tonight
Tune in tonight
Tune in tonight
Try to think of nothing

The entire Golden Age Of Wireless is a Masterpiece. Listening to it for 35 years now and still loving every Song.

Absolutely right.

The Golden Age of wireless, or as I like to call it: 'If 'kilroy was here' was good

I remember taping it on cassette when MTV played the whole performance late one night. It wasn’t long after when I was able to purchase the album.

royal nass

Windpower is the best

@Adolf Noise I think I got my copy in a vintage emporium in Brighton about 5 years ago! It's just a really cohesive album, so good I have two copies of it haha

Thomas Dolby's songs are like pleasant dreams. The sounds and visuals go along perfectly.

Nine Nzinga

Yep soothing and familiar.

Kieran Hendry

So far ahead of his time absolute genius, should of been massive and should be mentioned along with the greats of the era

Nine Nzinga

Still a hidden gem
