"I Sometimes Wish I Was Dead" as written by and Vince Clarke....
New sound all around
You can hear it too
Getting hot, never stop
Just for me and you
Playing on my radio and saying that you had to go

New day turn away
Wipe away the tear
New night, feel right
Knowing that you're here
Dancing with you all the time, and don't you think that it's a crime

Back street never meet
Never say goodbye
I know where you go
But I don't know why
You say that it's from above, and I say this is modern love

    General CommentHe keeps talking about someone leaving and never saying goodbye.

    Maybe he keeps meeting someone at night and having some kind of romance with them. He's enjoying it until one night the person doesn't show up and he doesn't know why

    General Commentyoud expect this song would be gloomy by its title, but then its perky and upbeat instead. DM has thier goth side, but they are also pretty wacky too, and thats what makes them such a great universal band

    General Commentlol I love this song so much. catchy as hell. the lyrics and the title give me the impression of anxiety and social awkwardness when the singer tries to get with the girl. which I can wholeheartedly relate to of course.

    In live videos on youtube, Dave changes the fourth line to "Just like me and you" which makes a bit more sense.
