"True Faith (New Order cover)" as written by Stephen Paul David Morris, Peter Hook, Bernard (gb 2) Sumner, Gillian Lesley Gilbert and Stephen E. Hague....
I feel so extraordinary
Something's got a hold on me
I get this feeling I'm in motion
A sudden sense of liberty

I don't care 'cause I'm not there
And I don't care if I'm here tomorrow
Again and again I've taken too much
Of the things that cost you too much

I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see delight in the shade of the morning sun
My morning sun is the drug that brings me near
To the childhood I lost, replaced by fear
I used to think that the day would never come
That my life would depend on the morning sun

When I was a very small boy
Very small boys talked to me
Now that we've grown up together
They're afraid of what they see

That's the price that we all pay
Our valued destiny comes to nothing
I can't tell you where we're going
I guess there was just no way of knowing

I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see delight in the shade of the morning sun
My morning sun is the drug that brings me near
To the childhood I lost, replaced by fear
I used to think that the day would never come
That my life would depend on the morning sun

Now I fear you've left me standing
In a world that's so demanding

I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see delight in the shade of the morning sun
My morning sun is the drug that brings me near
To the childhood I lost, replaced by fear
I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see delight in the shade of the morning sun
My morning sun is the drug that brings me near
To the childhood I lost, replaced by fear

I used to think that the day would never come
That my life would depend on the morning sun

    Lyric CorrectionNever good on judging the song meanings, but I did notice a slight error.
    You have "To the childhood I lost, replaced by fear" and the the song has this line 4 times.
    The third time it is said, this is correct, but 1st, 2nd, and 4th are: To the childhood I lost,
    displaced by fear.

    General CommentThe original (New Order) is about drug addiction.

    General CommentI think the song was meant to be a statement on life as seen by Ian Curtis, as if he was writing it himself. A unique tribute of sorts, and well done.
