Take the way home that leads back to Sullivan St.
Cross the water and home through the town
Past the shadows that fall down wherever we meet
Pretty soon I won't come around
I'm almost drowning in her sea
She's nearly fallen to her knees
Take the way home that leads back to Sullivan St.
Where all the bodies hang on the air
If she remembers, she hides it whenever we meet
Either way now, I don't really care
I'm almost drowning in her seas
She's nearly crawling on her knees
She's down on her knees.....

Come up on different streets, they both were streets of shame
Both dirty, both mean, yes, and the dream was just the same
And I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real
How can you look at me as if I was just another one of your deals?

When you can fall for chains of silver you can fall for chains of gold
You can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold
You promised me everything, you promised me thick and thin, yeah
Now you just say "oh, Romeo, yeah, you know I used to have a scene with him"
:tup: “And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.” :wink:

I remember trying to pull a bird to this song, she even sang the words to me and I thought wow!
then her boyfriend walked into the room & spoilt the party :(

Similar songs, both good but both not the bands best work....Romeo and Juliet suffers more as it's not on the debut where the real quality lies..That's where we first hear Knopfler's genius on the guitar ...

Oct 78 in elephant records Aldershot ....I'll never forget hearing them for the first time

Love all five songs in the Grand Final

'Romeo' is a fantastic song off the 'Making Movies' album

Like Faaip I recall early Dire Straits with their massive selling debut album, great shop music
& never tired of it hearing everyday during the summer of '78

Actually I'm surprised 'Romeo' has done so well as Faaip is the only one who has often discussed Dire Straits in the past, also no one has ever nominated their albums in the Prem/Champs poll.

Pleased Knopfler's band is getting some exposure on here :-D
