Dire Straits Your Latest Trick Lyrics

Last updated: 02/29/2012 10:00:00 AM

All the late night bargains have been struck
Between the satin beaus and their belles
Prehistoric garbage trucks
Have the city to themselves
Echoes and roars, dinosaurs
They're all doing the monster mash
And most of the taxis, most of the whores
Are only taking calls for cash

I don't know how it happened
It all took place so quick
But all I can do is hand it to you
And your latest trick

Well, now, my door was standing open
Security was laid back and lax
But it was only my heart got a-broken
You must have had a pass key made out of wax
You played robbery with insolence
And I played the blues in twelve bars down on Lover's Lane
And you never did have the intelligence to use
The twelve keys hanging off of my chain

I don't know how it happened
It all took place so quick
But all I can do is hand it to you
And your latest trick

Well, now, it's past last call for alcohol
Past recall has been here and gone
The landlord he finally paid us all
The satin jazzmen have put away their horns
And we're standing outside of this wonderland
Looking so bereaved and so bereft
Like a Bowery bum when he finally understands
The bottle's empty and there's nothing left

I don't know how it happened
It was faster than the eye could flick
But all I can do is hand it to you
And your latest trick

I think the song is about someone ("I figure") who is swept of his feet and has been heartbroken bij someone ("you figure") in an instant, and is now wondering how this could happen

Its about lost love in Knoflers kind a way,realism,etc. Also he mentions life after her.

Talking about falling in love with a woman,who was not so smart,but she made him sad as he said I PLAYED THE BLUES IN 12 BAR DOWN.
