Thieves Like Us” (1984) by New Order [1]

I’ve watched your face for a long time
It’s always the same
I’ve studied the cracks and the wrinkles
You were always so vain
Well, now, you live your life like a shadow
In the pouring rain
Oh, it’s called love
Yes, it’s called love
Oh, it’s called love
And it belongs to us
Oh, it dies so quickly
It grows so slowly
But, when it dies, it dies for good
It’s called love
And it belongs to everyone but us

I’ve lived my life in the valleys
I’ve lived my life on the hills
I’ve lived my life on alcohol
I’ve lived my life on pills
But it’s called love
And it belongs to us
It’s called love
And it’s the only thing that’s worth living for
It’s called love
And it belongs to us
It’s called love
Yes, it’s called love

Oh, love is found in the east and west
But, when love is at home, it’s the best
Love is the cure for every evil
Love is the air, that supports the eagle
It’s called love
And it’s so uncool
It’s called love
And somehow it’s become unmentionable
It’s called love
And it belongs to every one of us
It’s called love
And it cuts your life like a broken knife
