Lyrics to The Main Thing

Lyrics to the song The Main Thing as recorded by Roxy Music.

(Ferry)

Look at my hand
There's a soul on fire
You can lead me even higher
It's the main thing
The main thing
It's the main thing

Everybody knows
When a good thing's gone
You can really turn me on
It's the main thing
The main thing
It's the main thing

You run through here
With your words of sand
I can nearly understand
It's the main thing

It's the main thing
The main thing
The main thing
