The Live E.P. Lyrics

Are 'Friends' Electric?
(1979 single, from "Replicas" album)

It's cold outside
And the paint's peeling off of my walls
There's a man outside
In a long coat, grey hat, smoking a cigarette

Now the light fades out
And I wonder what I'm doing
In a room like this
There's a knock on the door
And just for a second I thought
I remembered you

(7.4)
So now I'm alone
Now I can think for myself
About little deals
And S.U's
And things I just don't understand
A white lie that night
Or a sly touch at times
I don't think it meant anything to you

So I open the door
It's the 'friend' that I'd left in the hallway
'Please sit down'
A candlelit shadow on a wall near the bed

You know I hate to ask
But are 'friends' electric?
Only mine's broke down
And now I've no-one to love

(7.4)
So I found out your reasons
For the phone calls and smiles
And it hurts
And I'm lonely
And I should never have tried
And I missed you tonight
It must be time to leave
You see it meant everything to me 

 



Berserker 
(Single from 'Berserker' album, 1984)

I've been waiting for you
I've waited far too long
Do you wanna come with me now?

And this is my story
My face, the picture's changed
Do you remember me?
Now I'm fighting to breathe
It's been such a long time

Do you wanna come with me now?

Nothing here for me now
I can't believe the noise
We'll take this place apart
I won't be here for long
I know they'll find me soon

Do you wanna come with me?
Do you wanna c-c-c-c-c-c come come come come
I'll question everything
I'll trade new dreams for old
I've been waiting for you
I've waited far too long
I've been waiting, I've been waiting
Do you wanna come with me now?

Now the weakness comes
I'll question everything
I'll trade new dreams for old
I've been waiting for you
I've waited far too long

Do you wanna come with me now?
I've been waiting for you
I've waited far too long
I've been waiting for you
I've waited far too long
Do you wanna come with me
Do you wanna come?

 



Cars 
(Single from 'The Pleasure Principle' album, 1979.)

Here in my car
I feel safest of all
I can lock all my doors
I't's the only way to live
In cars

Here in my car
I can only receive
I can listen to you
It keeps me stable for days
In cars

Here in my car
Where the image breaks down
Will you visit me, please
If I open my door
In cars

Here in my car
I know I've started to think
About leaving tonight
Although nothing seems right
In cars 

 



We Are Glass 
(Single, 1980)

We are young we can break
Watch us fall
We can take some train
Down to the sea
We are glass, we are glass

We are real you can touch
Just for now
And I say
'Hey you which way is down?'
We are glass, we are glass

We are strong
We're unknown
We have time
And to you I'm just one of those boys
We are glass, we are glass

We are cold
We're not supposed to cry
But it's all just a thought so
Here am I
We are glass, we are glass

They run past impressions
Of floors inviting
Stay with me, stay with me
They run past with telephones
They scream
Well would you
Turn all this down
Turn all this down

You are replaced
You are you
And now dreams are real
And dreams are all we need
We are glass, we are glass

They run past impressions
Of floors inviting
Stay with me, stay with me
They run past with telephones
They scream
Well would you
Turn all this down
Turn all this down
