the raincoats – adventures close to home (1979)

Passion that shouts
Red with anger
I lost myself
Through alleys of mysteries
I went up and down
like a demented train

Don’t take it personal
I choose my own fate
I follow love
I follow hate

Searching for something
that makes hearts move
I found myself
But my best possession
walked into the shade
and threatened to drift away

Don’t take it personal
I choose my own fate
I follow love
I follow hate

For all of myself
I left you behind as if I could
possessed by Quixote’s dream
Went to fight dragons in the land of concrete

Don’t take it personal
I choose my own fate
I follow love
I follow hate

Rolling in pain
discovered what hurts
and tasted hell
infatuated by madness
I danced in flames
and drank in the depth of love
