"Love Less" as written by and Peter/gilbert Hook....
There was a time I call before
When all I knew was what I saw
The keeper of a major key
I lived in a town called Liberty

I worked hard
To give you all the things that you need
And almost anything that you see
I spent a lifetime working on you
And you won't even talk to me

Can't you see
Why don't you look at me
It's not your right to be
So much my enemy

I knew that I could never give
You knew that you could not forgive
No price or pride would fall before
A ten foot wall without a door

But you know
I watch every step that you make
To find some other fool you can take
And I don't know why I even try
Because it all comes down to this

Can't you see
Why don't you look at me
It's not your right to be
So much my enemy

Can't you see
Why don't you look at me
It's not your right to be
So much my enemy

I worked hard
To give you all the things that you need
And almost anything that you see
I spent a lifetime working on you
And you won't even talk to me

    General Commentfairly obvious....

    its about caring for someone and doing everything for them in order to help them, but the other person does not feel the same way and wont give you the time of day despite your efforts.

    one of my many favorite New Order songs...

    General CommentI thought its was about how kids don't respect old people even though they made everyhting the kids use now.

    General Commentpretty straight forward. It's about a selfish bitch. Bernie writes a lot of songs on this subject. Love it!!!

    General CommentI'm with crippledmcgimp and hypemike, it's quite obvious (for once!)

    Both this one and "All the way" are two little jewels buried in Technique. I really love them.
