walk between worlds


composers
Written by: Kerr / Burchill


publisher
BMG Rights Management (UK) Ltd


background
JK: The title track Walk Between Worlds, we were talking about it the other day. We thought "It's Simple Minds, and it's Simple Minds now." Musically it's why we felt it would be good to be the calling card because the style of the music says where we are right now.
JK: Everyone seems to sense the chaos going on right now and it's almost calling out for some understanding.

GG: "Walk Between Worlds began as a bit of a sleeper in some ways Ė we didnít know from the outset it would be the title track of the album. Certain songs had made themselves known earlier, tracks like Magic, Summer, Utopia, Barrowland Ė whereas Walk Between Worlds wasnít obvious at that point. There were always great things in it from the outset; the guitar riff that Charlie does, lots of fantastic stuff going on, but we somehow lost our way a little bit for a while. Sometimes it can happen with a song. And then we rediscovered a big synth bass line which somehow weíd overlooked temporarily, and once we brought it back in again it kind of anchored the song and everything started to make sense. Youíd never know when you listen to it now, it sounds obvious, and with the full arrangement behind it, itís a fantastic piece, but for a while we couldnít figure it out!"

lyrics
What will you do when thereís so much to lose
But you wonít pay the price to go on?
And where will you stand when thereís no helping hand
Or no road to deter right from wrong?
What good can it bring to ignore suffering
To shut out all the reason inside?
From life ordinary to the heights they got scary
No reason it canít be denied

Oh brother, donít you know the heart starts beating now?
Brother, canít you see? There is no reason now

Walk between worlds, when you walk between worlds
When you walk between worlds, we will see
When we walk between worlds
When you walk between worlds
When you walk between worlds you and me

So what will it bring when thereís no offering
Thereís no music, no dreams, no way out?
No flag to unfurl when you walk between worlds
No fear, no wisdom, no doubt
What good can it bring to ignore suffering
To shut out all the rage inside?
From life ordinary to the heights they got scary
No reason it canít be denied

Oh brother, donít you know the heart starts beating now?
Brother, canít you see? There is no reason now
There is no reason now

Walk between worlds, when you walk between worlds
When you walk between worlds, youíll see
When you walk between worlds
When you walk between worlds
When you walk between worlds you and me

Oh brother, donít you know the heart starts beating now?
