    The Nylon Curtain 1982 ©

    Scandinavian Skies

    The sins of Amsterdam
    Were still a recent surprise
    And we were flying over
    Scandinavian skies

    We climbed towards the sun
    We turned and cursed as one
    We pulled the shades
    And closed our eyes

    The Stockholm city lights
    Were slowly starting to rise
    And we were strapped against
    Those Scandinavian skies

    The landing gear came down
    And touched the Swedish ground
    And we were all so paralyzed

    On the plane
    We were mainly sound and lights
    In the veins
    We could play the blues all night

    The tour of Germany
    Was bleeding into our eyes
    And we were sailing over
    Scandinavian skies

    We had the Midas touch
    Until we met the Dutch
    And they exhausted our supplies

    Who's to pay?
    For this international flight
    Who could stay
    We were only there for the night
    We watched the power fall
    Inside the Oslo hall
    While all the cold Norwegians cried

    Who could say
    What was left and where was right?
    By the way
    I could play the blues all night
