background
First appearing during the Life In A Day tour, Calling Your Name harked back to the earlier sounds and lyrical ideas of Life In A Day.

It was eventually recorded and scheduled as the penultimate track on Real To Real Cacophony, and duly became a staple of their immediate live shows.




lyrics
Private world,
Moving fast.
I see your face in the distant past.
Time passes slowly.
Time passes slowly.
Time passes slowly.
Echoes of an empty room,
Assassin at the window below.
The concrete jungle sleeps at night.
Story ends.
Leave him alone.

Calling,
Calling your name.
All that you say goes in vain.
I would like to find you,
On a voyage,
That could find itself true.

Centre of a scene,
Where a man lies dying in the sun.
The concrete jungle sleeps at night.
Story ends.
Can't leave him alone.

Calling,
Calling your name.
All that you say goes in vain.
I would like to find you,
On a voyage,
That could find itself true.

Private world,
Moving fast,
I see your face in the distant past.
Time passes slowly.
Time passes slowly.
Time passes slowly.
