To hold you
Love you
See you smile at the break of day
To touch you
Know you
Want you by me.
When you're far away

It's easy to say
But hard to do
When you're in love
With some foolish child
And everybody
Just can't understand
They say, See him, Watch him
He will change his mind

But I see you
Want him
You're always with him
....when the lights go down
You need him
Love him
He promises
He'll always stay around

It's easy for me
When the daylight's here
It's easy to be happy
When I'm in the crowd
But maybe someday
I could take his place
l want you, need you
I won't change my mind

But he holds you
Loves you
He has you with him
At the break of day
He'll touch you
Know you
Wants you by him
Though you're far away

If all these things you say are true
There's just one thing I need to know
Is this love or lies, just a flame or a fire
There's something I need and only you can help

To hold you
Love you
See you smile
At the break of day

To touch you
Know you
Want you by me
When you're far away

To hold you
Love you
Have you with me
When the lights go down

To see you
Need you
Promise me
You'll always stay around

    General CommentThis is really the stand-out track on a rather mediocre pop album with one or two good singles (Crush). The brilliant lyrics, lush arrangement, and melancholy vocal delivery hint at the emotional complexity that was to come on "Sugar Tax." Perhaps OMD could have never sustained the experimental and avant-garde leanings of their first four LPs, but if you're going to sell out it's best to be sophisticated about it. The synth-pop band seemed like they were floundering for a hit during the late 80's until they happened upo the notion of 'pop music for adults' with "Sugar Tax." This song holds the key. Read these lyrics and tell me you don't feel some kind of pang in your heart, especially if you can relate to the situation presented herein. My hat's off to OMD for being the most consistently interesting electronic act of the 80's.
