"First And Last And Always" as written by Andrew Eldritch and Gary Marx....
See a body and the dream of the dead days
Following lost and blind
Living, far from here
Tomorrow is hard to find
And it seems like twenty-five years of
Promises and give me more
Scenes of a hand me down in
Dresses heard before

First and last and always:til the end of time
First and last and always: Mine

Maybe it's not so easy
Maybe it's a way too long
Say, say you'll be by me
When the evidence comes along

(My calling)
(My time)

See a body and the dream of the dead days
A following lost and blind
Cross my heart with silver
Here's the key behind
Seems like twenty-five years of
Ever after, ever more more more
Seems I wore this face for you
Far too long before

First and last and always: My calling, my time
First and last and always: Mine
First and last and always: 'til the end of the end of time
First and last and always: Mine
First and last and always: 'til the end of time
First and last and always: Mine

    Song Meaning(Like many of Andrews songs this is again a sad LOVE SONG about his long lost love from years ago...)

    And she came to look for me
    Sold me name and innocence
    (Love found him he did not go looking for it... but it hurt HIM in the end)
    Took my key
    And told me to follow her
    Down from igor with her bangles and her reference (she swept his heart away)
    One from the church from the valley of the
    Well she wanted a haven and a place to hide (she was pure and innocent from a well off or middle class family with a solid religious background.. looking for a solid family to start... he was however not as pure or innocent as she was)
    So I gave her an alibi took her inside but
    (They started to share their own feelings and thoughts of themselves and life during this relationship. he was too honest with her)

    A rock and a hard place await for for me
    Between the devil and the deep blue sea
    (He was asked a difficult question like have you done PROSTITUTION. .. he was too honest here as he thought he needed to be when in LOVE. ...a parallel is drawn here between him and her... him the devil and she being clean like the deep blue sea. .. now they suddenly seem so far apart and different in their own thoughts and beliefs)
    Everything I ever did right or wrong
    Hid out of sight where I belong, belong
    (His confession was far too wrong for her to understand or accept..)

    And I didn't have the heart to tell her
    Why
    And there wasn't a part of me that
    Didn't want to say goodbye but
    (break up is hard. .. they broke up due to this passed action it became too of a big thing to actually deal with- A Rock in a Hard Place)

    Cause and effect go hand in hand (he admits to his wrongs but the effects are already done)
    The devil may care but I don't mind (this action was of the devils work - and the devil did win but he still did not care as he justified his actions already) and I Thought she'd never quite understand so I Left her there that night but will she
    Find me? I don't think so, no
    When you go, you go alone

    (He was hoping to mend this love relationship. .. but It was not to be she never returned... she was too pure and innocent for his past. . different and difficult life)
    And I'm gone.............
    far away [x4]

    (Far away - too far apart to mend)

    And I didn't have the heart to tell
    Why (His action was of lust... young lust of sex... he justified his actions... she was too pure to understand this type of man's action)
    And there wasn't a part of me that
    Didn't want to say goodbye but...

    (Andrew regrets his actions in this song... he lost this love)

    This song has tough us not to be too honest. ... when you do not go looking for heartache the devil will bring up the past and hurt you with your own truth. ..
