neon cowboys


composers

publisher

background
This song was unofficially premiered by Jordi Tarda on the 25th November 2000.

"Edward Hopper saw them and turned them into icons. But you can see them everywhere and anywhere; silent philosophers, ghosts at the bar, loners at midnight somehow too deep in their own thought to communicate externally. Knocking back one last one, for the mythological road that we all refer to at some stage." - Jim, Silver Box.

lyrics
The lyrics have never been published: a transcription follows

No, don't walk away.
I need you to stay with me tonight.

Come on, what have you heard?
How desperate the word creeping me tonight.

Like Christians and the lions,
We'll lay down in the sand.
While neon city cowboys,
Drift across our land,
In their caravans.

Why and what can we learn?
Narcissus returns the child in me tonight.

Like Muslems in the car wash,
Like locators in our hands,
The neon city cowboys,
Never give our land,
With no plans.

Turn don't walk away,
Stay with me tonight.

Stay with me.
