"A Long Goodbye" as written by Andy Bell and Vince Clarke....
In these days of mine for keeps I'm trying to hold on
Suddenly you're all out of reach and everything goes wrong
What we say and what we do are entirely different things
Meaning lost straight through the roof
That's not how it should be

Easy like a bird
I ride the breeze
My mind is falling

You're so ordinary
You're my sanctuary in the morning, darling
New sensation, love vibration
Heart to heart and a long goodbye

You go your way and I'll go my way
Life is truer than fiction
In this crazy land of milk and honey
Life is just an illusion

I just don't know what to believe in
If the truth be known
Suffering from soul fatigue
Weathering the storm

What we say and what we do are entirely different things
Whispered voices fill the room
That's not how it should be

Swaying like a tree
I feel the sky
Somebody calling

You're so ordinary
Be my sanctuary in the morning, darling
New sensation, love vibration
Heart to heart and a dumb goodbye

You go your way and I'll go my way
Life is truer than fiction
In this crazy mixed up world of honey
Life is just an illusion, darling

[Illusion, darling...]
[You're so ordinary...]
[You're so...]
[You're so ordinary...]

Easy like a bird
I ride the breeze
My mind is falling

You're so ordinary
Be my sanctuary in the morning, darling
New sensation, love vibration
Heart to heart and a long goodbye

You go your way, I'll go my way
Life is truer than fiction
In this crazy mixed up world of honey
Life is just an illusion

You're so ordinary, sanctuary
Be my one in the morning, darling
New sensation, love vibration
Heart to heart and a dumb goodbye

You go your way and I'll go my way
Life is truer than fiction
In this crazy mixed up world of honey
Life is just an illusion

You're so ordinary, sanctuary
Be my light in the morning, darling
New sensation, love vibration
Heart to heart and a long goodbye

You go your way and I'll go my way
Life is truer than fiction
In this crazy mixed up world of honey
Life is just an illusion darling

[Darling]
[Darling]
[Darling]
