You turned me away
Away from your actions
Forced by the violence
That always surrounds you

I want your special smile
A smile in this crowd
I want your special smile
A smile in this crowd

You burnt yourself out
In that silence
I have to tell you
I ache for you still
The sound of my words
Is always so shocking
They get much louder
Each time I speak

I want your special smile
A smile in this crowd
I want your special smile
A smile in this crowd

Signals of progress
We're growing much older
I'm afraid that I'll leave
And my ache never goes

I want your special smile
A smile in this crowd
I want your special smile
A smile in this crowd

    General Commentnice cover version by Martin Gore from his Counterfeit E.P. But the original version by The Durutti Column is better in my opinion. The lyrics are self-explaining, honest and quite beautiful.
