Cochrane, Tom - White Hot Lyrics




Waiting by the shoreline
In Somalia for your reply
I need you to come see me
That's no lie
The guns are getting closer
The sweat pours like dew
That fell from the trees in Tripoli
In the spring

I'm white hot
I can't take it anymore
I'm white hot
By the Somalian shore
White hot
Yes I'm burning to the core
I need rain

Cast out from the jungle
With no rations or canteen
For selling faulty rifles
To the thieves in Tanzania

Adventures and misfortune
Nothing wagered, nothing gained
I have wandered through the desert
Found the ocean not the rain

I can remember the nights by the strand in Tripoli
We were so much cooler then
I had you and my poetry to protect me
We were so much younger then
I need rain

I'm white hot
I can't take it anymore
I'm white hot
By the Somalian shore

I'm white hot
Yes I'm burning to the core
I need rain, I need rain, I need rain

I can remember the nights by the sea in Tripoli
We were so much colder then
I had you and my poetry to protect me
We were both soldiers then
Bolder then, colder then
I need rain, I need rain, I need rain
White hot
White hot...
Water

    Great live version. I booked Red Rider twice for Northern College concerts back in the mid-nineties. The entire group were so easy to work with and left it all on the stage. Two and a half hours of solid Tom Cochrane and Red Rider. They have never been given the credit they deserve.
    To this day, their album "Neruda" remains as one of the top ten of the entire decade of the 80's. An incredible musical experience to smoke a top quality spliff, put on good headphones, and go on an unforgettable journey into the limbic region of your mind.

    "To this day, their album "Neruda" remains as one of the top ten of the entire decade of the 80's." How do you figure?
