Steve Winwood Phoenix Rising Lyrics

See you on the avenue

And I know you’re gonna be

Hearing secret harmonies yeah

It’s a very fine line

A trembling leaf

‘Tween the heaven here on earth

And mystery you’ve witnessed in your own dreams

As the stars shine with magic illusion

And the sirens sing up from the streets

Phoenix Rising Phoenix Rising Phoenix Rising

Hear the beat, feel the heat

Phoenix Rising, Phoenix Rising, Phoenix Rising

Blue is what you make it babe

No one else can make you cry

While seasons mark your proud beliefs Yeah

And the passion fills your eyes with sodium light

And the secrets that you hold within you

Should be mine and mine alone now

Well it’s love not illusion that’s what I want

Like the music that flows from the streets at night

Phoenix Rising, Phoenix Rising, Phoenix Rising

Hear the beat, feel the heat

Phoenix Rising, Phoenix Rising, Phoenix Rising

Take the rhythm now

As it rolls on

All through the town

Close your eyes

Take your prize

Just as I stumble through the heat, and I remember

As I wander through the streets

I remember ancient beats

Though the sidewalk burns my feet, I surrender

As the stars shine with magic illusion

And the sirens sing up from the street

Phoenix Rising, Phoenix Rising, Phoenix Rising

Hear the beat, feel the heat

Phoenix Rising, Phoenix Rising, Phoenix Rising

Find your space

Take your place
