Desire

Utgiven: 1988
Text:
Musik:
Lover, I'm off the streets
I'm gonna go where the bright lights
And the big city meet
With a red guitar, on fire
Desire.

She's the candle burnin' in my room
Yeah, I'm like the needle
The needle and spoon
Over the counter, with a shotgun
Pretty soon, everybody's got one
I'm in a fever, when I'm beside her
Desire
Desire.

And the fever, gettin' higher
Desire
Desire.
(Burning, burning).

She's the dollars
She's my protection
Yeah, she's the promise
In the year of election.
Sister I can't let you go
Like a preacher stealin' hearts at a travellin' show
For love or money, money, money... ?
And the fever, gettin' higher.
Desire.

Tolkningar:

Jag tror att man når den bästa tolkningen av Desire när man inser att ordet "desire" [längtan, begär, lust, åtrå] kan ha flera olika innebörder. En möjlighet är att se till ordets bokstavliga betydelse och betrakta det som utbytbart mot "penningbegär", vilket också tycks vara fokus i sista strofen "för kärlek eller pengar, pengar, pengar…" (for love or money, money, money…). Sedan finns också ordets metaforiska innebörd, och man skulle kunna tolka det som att texten handlar om Desire, en stadsdel i New Orleans, Louisiana, "…där de klara ljusen/och den stora staden möts" (where the bright lights/and the big city meet) och droger, gäng och fattigdom dominerar. Med en sådan tolkning handlar låten om den sociala strukturens förfall i innerstaden, vilket illustreras bäst med raden "över disken med ett hagelgevär, snart har alla ett" (over the counter, with a shotgun/pretty soon, everybody's got one). Ytterligare en sak som stödjer denna tolkning är användningen av "hon" i texten. Detta "hon" verkar inte syfta på en person utan snarare - metaforiskt - på en plats. Och jag tror att denna plats är Desire.
