slave to love



bryan ferry
born 26 september 1945

the suave and sophisticated crooner captured my attention with this lush groove from his album boys and girls twenty five years ago. i quickly went back to through his back catalogue with roxy music, which made this album pale in comparison. still, this seductive samba still captures the imagination.




tell her i'll be waiting in the usual place
with the tired and weary and there's no escape
to need a woman you've got to know
how the strong get weak and the rich get poor


slave to love
slave to love

you're running with me
don't touch the ground.
we're the restless hearted
not the chained and bound
the sky is burning
a sea of flame
though your world is changing I will be the same


slave to love
slave to love
slave to love
slave to love

no
i can't escape
i'm a slave to love

can you help me?


the storm is breaking or so it seems
we're too young to reason to grown up to dream
now spring is turning your face to mine
i can hear your laughter
i can see your smile

slave to love
slave to love
slave to love
slave to love
slave to love
no
i can't escape
i'm a slave to love
slave to love

no
i can't escape
i'm a slave to love
