I'm out in the rain again,
Goin' berserk over all the things she said.
But I can't read the note.
I tore that shit into a million shreds.
Ah, but the words still reign in my head.
Oh, the words still remain.

Oh, love will bring us down.
Our love will bring us down.

I noticed she's been listenin'
A lot to Joy Division lately.
And I noticed that darkness in her smile
And her eye reveals a song I wouldn't listen to

Deperation and sex,
I'd rather choose sun and boys.
Desperation and sex,
I'd rather choose sun and boys.

Yeah, love will bring us down.
Our love will bring us down.
Oh, love will bring us down.
Our love will bring us down.

Oh, love will bring us down.
Our love will bring us down.
Our love will bring us down.
Our love will bring us down.

    General CommentI wasn't sure of the lyrics for "I noticed she's been listenin'
    A lot to Joy Lavition lately" and "I'd rather shoot sun and boys." I just kind of guessed as to what he was singing. If you know the correct lyrics (or have a better guess, haha) let me know. :)

    General CommentIt's Joy Divison (a (great) band), i think it's basicly about his girlfriend going of and becoming emo (or something like that), listening to "joy divison - love will tear us apart," then using that song as some kind of reason to break up with her.

    General Comment"then using that song as some kind of reason to break up with HIM" of course, not her.

    General CommentI think the correct words are
    'I rather choose sun and boys'
    since it's about the subject of the songs he wished ske liked to listen to, instead of songs about 'desperation and sex',
    if he could choose her music taste, he would have choosed sun and boys..
    but that's just me guessing :)

    lowe will tear us apart is a very good song btw :)

    General CommentWow, hemulen cracked this one for me... thanks!

    "her eye reveals a song I wouldn't listen to" is such a good lyric.. these lyrics are perfect. It stuns me that SKWBN can write songs like this without being able to speak perfect English. :D

    General CommentA sunny day song. She dumped him due to a new morbid leaning (feeling love isn't worth the pain it causes) while he thinks the high points will be worth it. The relationship has ended and their love has brought him down, as she tried to protect herself from the pain.

    General CommentI agree with most of the others, but I'd say there's also a queer side to the song. He says she's become all about desperation and sex, but he'd rather choose "sun and boys".
