"Guilt Is a Useless Emotion" as written by and Bernard (gb 2)/hook Sumner....
Just another day in the week
Waiting for an opportunity to step in front of me
Maybe I'm losing my mind
Searching for another place in another time
Real love can't be bought
It is wild and it can't be cought
Real love can't be sold
It's another color than gold
(I need your love) I just want to buy it
(I need your love) Will you help me find it
(I want your love) How can you deny it
(I need your love) You've just gotta try it
(I want you now) Something that you gotta know
(I need you now) My love for you I want to show
(I want your love) I'm telling you that I belong
(I need your love) You and me just can't go wrong
Standing on top of the world
Thinking at the joy you bring when you do that thing to me
You sure know a lot for a girl
You can bring the good times back get me on the track
Real love can't be bought
It is wild and it can't be cought
Real love can't be sold
It's another color than gold
I need your love) I just want to buy it
(I need your love) Will you help me find it
(I want your love) How can you deny it
(I need your love) You've just gotta try it
(I want you now) Something that you gotta know
(I need you now) My love for you I want to show
(I want your love) I'm telling you that I belong
(I need your love) You and me just can't go wrong
(I need your love)
(I need your love)
(I need your love)
(I need your love)
(I need your love) I just want to buy it
(I need your love) Will you help me find it
(I want your love) How can you deny it
(I need your love) You've just gotta try it
(I want you now) Something that you gotta know
(I need you now) My love for you I want to show
(I want your love) I'm telling you that I belong
(I need your love) You and me just can't go wrong
You and me just can't go wrong
You and me just can't go wrong
You and me just can't go wrong
You and me just can't go wrong

    General CommentIt is about someone searching for love but it seems too hard for them because love cannot be bought or sold. I'm guessing that the person in question is a business man or someone powerful because of the lyrics "Standing on top of the world". Either way this song makes me want to dance for some reason.

    General Commentmy father loves new order so much... and i like some songs...
    i just discovered this one this morning...
    i find the lyrics just a bit "cliche", and too easy, but i like it.

    i dont know why but the
    "Standing on top of the world
    Thinking at the joy you bring when you do that thing to me
    You sure know a lot for a girl
    You can bring the good times back get me on the track"
    part make me think about a blowjob...
    ok it's not very poetic and its maybe because i'm frnech and dont understand everythin in the song... but yeah, it make me think of that...

    General CommentDoitfortheteam, New Order have knack for taking simple or "easy" lyrics & making them sound brilliant & as though they have some other meaning (which they usually do)

    I think is one of greatest New Order songs. The lyrics may be simple but Bernard has a way of entrancing you with his vocals. The music itself is great too. It has this somewhat dirty beat that hypnotizes you, especially that crushing sound.

    General CommentThe suspense thrills you from the sound of the heart beating at the start... You can almost feel the energy from this song hitting against your skin. Oh no, it must've been the vibration from my car speakers. Nevertheless, a most powerful song, with the typical New Order lyrics which make you think..."is it really as straight forward as love or is there a deeper meaning?"
