Martin Gore









In My Time Of Dying



author: James Patrick, John Bonham, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones


In my time of dying

I don't want nobody to mourn

All I want for you to do is

Take my body home


***


Well, well, well

So I can die easy

Well, well, well

Well, well, well

So I can die easy


***


Jesus gonna make up

Jesus gonna make up

Jesus gonna make up my dying bed


***


Meet me, Jesus, meet me

Won't you meet me in the middle of the air

And if these wings should fail me, Lord

Won't you meet me with another pair


***


Well, well, well

So I can die easy

Well, well, well

Well, well, well

So I can die easy


***


Jesus gonna make up

Jesus gonna make up

Jesus gonna make up my dying bed


***


In my time of dying

I don't want nobody to cry

All I want for you to do is

Take me when I die


***


Well, well, well

So I can die easy

Well, well, well

Well, well, well

So I can die easy


***


Jesus gonna make up

Jesus gonna make up

Jesus gonna make up my dying bed







Stardust



author: David Essex


Ah look what they've done to the rock n' roll clown

Ah rock n' roll clown, look he's down on the ground

Well he used to high fly but he crashed out the sky

In a stardust fling, hey rock n' roll king is down


***


Roll on up, won't you come and take a look at me

Roll on up, come one at a time, and see me

See my painted-on grin as a stand up to sing

In a stardust fling, hey rock n' roll king is down


***


But he's the leader of the band

He is a lonely man

Don't you wanna take his hand?

Yes you know you can, can, can


***


Well he used to high fly but he crashed out the sky

In a stardust fling, hey rock n' roll king is down

In a stardust fling, hey rock n' roll king is down

In a stardust fling, hey rock n' roll king is down







I Cast A Lonesome Shadow



author: Lynn Russwurm, Hank Thompson


Every evening when the sun goes down I sit here in my room

And the lamplight shining on me projects my lonely gloom

My counterpart in agony mocks each tear that falls

And I cast a lonesome shadow on these lonely, lonely walls


***


He's always by my side at night no matter where I go

He lurks out in the darkness or in the neon's glow

He follows me across the steps and up and down the hall

And I cast a lonesome shadow on these lonely, lonely walls


***


I sit and watch the candle and the flicker of the flame

My writhing shadow twists and turns as though it is in pain

I'm trying to escape the memory my heart recalls

And I cast a lonesome shadow on these lonely, lonely walls


***


The image of a love I lost and all the things I'd planned

Are as empty as the bottle that I hold in my hand

My soul is buried in the depths of love and life's pitfalls

And I cast a lonesome shadow on these lonely, lonely walls

I cast a lonesome shadow on these lonely, lonely walls







In My Other World



author: Julee Cruise, Louie Tucci


In my other world

There is no pain

And all my thoughts

Are clouds of happiness


***


In my other world

My heart beats red

There is no gun

Pointed at my head


***


And I don't really want your kiss

My thoughts don't make me cry

My heart's not filled with gray sadness

My ears can't hear you lie


***


I can't even see your face

I've never heard your name

My heart is still, my thoughts are calm

And light has filled this space


***


In my other world

My pain is bliss

I own your soul

I own your kiss


***


In my other world

In my other world







Loverman



author: Nick Cave


There's a devil waiting outside your door

There's a devil waiting outside your door

And he's bucking and braying and pawing at the floor

And he's howling with pain and crawling up the walls

There's a devil waiting outside your door

He's weak with evil and broken by the world

He's shouting your name and he's asking for more

Give him more give him more

There's a devil waiting outside your door

Oh yeah


***

Since the world began

Forever, Amen

Until end of time

Take off that dress

So help me, baby

'cause I am what I am what I am what I am what I am

***


There's a devil crawling along your floor

There's a devil crawling along your floor

With a trembling heart, he's coming through the door

With his straining sex in his jumping paw

Oh yeah

There's a devil crawling along your floor

And he's old and he's stupid and

he's hungry and he's sore

And he's lame and he's blind

and he's dirty and he's poor

Give him more give him more give him more give him more

give him more give him more give him more

There's a devil crawling along your floor

Oh yeah


***


Loverman!

Seize the mantle

Seize the crown

'cause I am what I am what I am what I am what I am

Your loverman!


***


There's a devil lying by your side

You might think he's asleep but look at his eyes

He wants you, baby, to be his bride

There's a devil lying by your side


***


I'll be your loverman!

Your loverman!

Until the bitter end

'cause I am what I am what I am what I am

Your loverman!

Your loverman!

'cause I am what I am what I am what I am what I am

Your loverman!







By This River



author: Hans Joachim Roedelius, Brian Eno, Dieter Moebius


Here we are, stuck by this river

You and I underneath the sky

That's ever falling down, down, down

Ever falling down


***


Through the day as if on an ocean

Waiting here, always failing to remember

Why we came, came, came

I wonder why we came


***


You talk to me as if from a distance

And I reply with impressions chosen

From another time, time, time

From another time







Lost In The Stars



author: Maxwell Anderson, Kurt Weill


Before Lord God made the sea and the land

He held all the stars in the palm of His hand

And they ran through His fingers like grains of sand

And one little star fell alone



***


Then the Lord God hunted through the wide night air

For that little dark star on the wind down there

And He stated and promised He takes special care

So it wouldn't get lost again


***


Now a man don't mind if the stars grow dim

Or the clouds blow over and darken him

So long as the Lord God's watching over them

Keeping track, how it all goes on


***


Now I've been walking through the night and day

Till my eyes get weary and my head turns gray

And sometimes it seems maybe God's gone away

Forgetting the promise that we heard Him say


***


And we're lost out here in the stars

Little stars, big stars, blowing through the night

And we're lost out here in the stars






Oh My Love



author: John Winston Lennon, Yoko Ono


Oh my love, for the first time in my life

My eyes are wide open

Oh my lover, for the first time in my life

My eyes can see


***


I see the wind, oh, I see the trees

Everything is clear in my heart

I see the clouds, oh, I see the sky

Everything is clear in our world


***


Oh my love, for the first time in my life

My mind is wide open

Oh my lover, for the first time in my life

My mind can see


***


I feel sorrow, oh, I feel dreams

Everything is clear in my heart

I feel life, oh, I feel love

Everything is clear in our world







Das Lied vom einsamen Mädchen



author: Werner R. Heymann, Robert Gilbert


Sie herzte sanft ihr Spielzeug

Bevor sie es zerbrach

Und hatte eine Sehnsucht

Und wußte nicht wonach


***


Weil sie einsam war

Und so blond ihr Haar

Und ihr Mund so rot wie Wein

Und wer von diesem Wein trank

Konnt' nie mehr glücklich sein


***


Doch einer sprach im Frühling:

"Auch Du fühlst Lust und Schmerz"

Und brachte tausend Rosen

Doch sie brach nur sein Herz


***


Weil sie einsam war

Und so blond ihr Haar

Und ihr Mund so rot wie Wein

Ja, keine konnt' so küssen

Und doch so einsam sein


***


Was blieb von ihrem Leben

Ein Lied, das niemand sang

St. Peter ließ sie warten

Zwei Ewigkeiten lang


***


Weil sie einsam war

Und so blond ihr Haar

Und ihr Herz so tot wie Stein

Dann rief er: "Armes Kind, komm,

Sollst nie mehr einsam sein"







Tiny Girls



author: Iggy Pop, David Bowie


Well, the day begins you don't want to live

'Cause you can't believe in the one you're with

'Cause you know her tricks and you know her past

When she makes a face you just have to laugh


***


And you feel like such a know-it-all

When you only want just a tiny girl

And you hope she'll sing


***


So you turn around toward the tiny girls

Who have got no tricks, who have got no past

Yeah, that's what you think

And you hope she'll sing


***


But she sings of greed like a young banshee

And she wants for this, and she wants for that

Ah, what did you think?







Candy Says



author: Lou Reed


Candy says

I've come to hate my body

And all that it requires in this world Candy says

I'd like to know completely

What others so discreetly talk about


***


I'm gonna watch the bluebirds fly

Over my shoulder

I'm gonna watch 'em pass me by

Maybe when I'm older


***


What do you think I'd see

If I could walk away from me


***


Candy says

I hate the quiet places

That cause the smallest taste of what will be


***


Candy says

I hate the big decisions

That cause endless revisions in my mind


***


I'm gonna watch the bluebirds fly

Over my shoulder

I'm gonna watch 'em pass me by

Maybe when I'm older


***


What do you think I'd see

If I could walk away from me


***


Doo-doo-wah

Doo, doo-doo-wah

Doo, doo-doo-wah

Doo, doo-doo-wah

Doo, doo-doo-wah

Life Is Strange



single: "Stardust" / author: Marc Bolan, T. Rex


Strange, life is strange, life is strange,

Oh life is strange.


***


O God, life is strange,

People come and people go,

Some move fast and some move slow,

No, no, no, no, no.


***


O God, life is good,

Some are fat and some are thin,

Some don't even ask you how you've been,

No, no, no, no, no.


***


Strange, life is strange, life is strange.

Oh life is strange.


***


O God, life is strange,

Some are fast and some are slow,

Some believe, me don't even know,

No, no, no, no, no.


***


Strange life is strange, life is strange.

Oh my life is strange.







Martin Gore





Left Hand Luke And The Beggar Boys



single: "Stardust" / author: T. Rex


Call yourself friend, and look me in the eye,

I'll unstrap my knees and apologise,

'Cos I'm, Left Hand Luke and the beggar boys,

O yes we are.


***


Ain't no neighbours, upon our hill,

Such slight thigh Be-bop and old gumbo jill,

'Cos we're, Left Hand Luke and the beggar boys,

O yes we are.


***


Ain't nobody's some-one,

And it hurts deep inside,

Just call us taxi mama and we'll take you for a ride,

'Cos we're, Left Hand Luke and the beggar boys,

O yes we are.


***


Left Hand Luke and the beggar boys,

O yes we are.


***


Myxomatosis is an animal's disease,

But I got so shook up mama that it ate away my knees,

'Cos I'm, Left Hand Luke and the beggar boys,

O yes we are.


***


Ain't had no money lord, but it's plain to see,

If you had some silver mister how much would you pay for me?

'Cos I'm, Left Hand Luke and the beggar boys,

O yes we are.
