There's no more wishes in the well
No more dreams to sell
No time in the hourglass
There's no more lies for you to tell
Your heaven is your hell
You future dying in the past

Evergreen
Ever, ever, evergreen
Evergreen
Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah

I know I'm never going to learn
Fingers fit to burn
You can't let the fire die
Keep the flame of your desire
Always rising higher
Aim for the stars and hit the sky

Evergreen
Ever, ever, evergreen
Evergreen
Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah

There's no more wishes in the well
No more dreams to sell
No time in the hourglass
There's no more lies for you to tell
Your heaven is your hell
You future dying in the past

That introduction made me think of an Emancipator song whose name escapes.

Instant 9 - that's fabulous!
Aim for stars and hit the sky.
Just love that line.
Really miss Pete de Freitas....he was key to their power.  {#Drummer}

Everybody in my mushrooming multitude of homeless camps loves this song...  we be dancing buck ass naked across the forests and fields and mountains and beaches from sea to shining sea...  love sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll...

hope you are having a marvelously medicated time right this minute, vandal...  time flies when we're having fun..

And they're on tour... finally! Been waiting 20+ years :)
not a masterpiece but not bad.

 
This has a definitive "Smiths" sound to it. I really like it. Excellent...always like the Bunnymen...along with Echo.
loved it!    E & Bm sometimes provide a super sound man, like much!
In the Year 2525...


This song ROCKS!  LOVE IT!

Romeotuma, if you were a woman this comment would have worked for me...
 
I am surrounded by women in bikinis right now...  just keep that in mind...

love this song... we be dancing...

 
Love The Bunnymen, unfortunately, this is far from their best stuff.  Would be great to hear some stuff from any of their early albums - Crocodiles, Porcupine, or their opus - Heaven Up Here!!!

You must dance a LOT!

Saw E&TBM back in 82 or 3, I think - in Southend, Essex - great gig


absolutely awesome...  volume just went wayyyy up...

 
I feel bad for the lead vocalist, it must have been really tough to remember all those complex lyrics. ;)

This isn't one of your finer picks Bill.
Excellent song. Reminds me of 'Electrafiction'.
Always good to hear them! 
More like this on RP please!

Evergreen = ever good.
Great band and its too bad they never got more appreciated, they deserve it. We got U2 instead. . If you like this check out the "Heaven up here" Cd/Vinyl.
