"Crystal" as written by Gabor Mueller and Bernard Sumner....
We're like crystal
(Hey)
We break easy
(Hoo)
I'm a poor man
(Hey)
If you leave me
(Hoo)
I'm applauded
(Hey)
Then forgotten
It was summer
(Hey)
Now it's autumn
(Hoo)
I don't know what to say
You don't care anyway
I'm a man in a rage
With a girl I betrayed
Here comes love
It's like honey
You can't buy it with money
You shook me to the core
You shook me to the core

(Hoo, hey)
We're like crystal
(Hey)
It's not easy
(Hoo)
With your love
(Hey)
You could feed me
(Hoo)
Every man
(Hey)
And every woman
(Hoo)
Needs someone
(Hey)
So keep it coming
Keep it coming
Keep it coming
Keep it coming
Keep it coming
Keep it coming

I don't know what to say
You don't care anyway
I'm a man in a rage
With a girl I betrayed
Here comes love
It's like honey
You can't buy it with money
You're not alone anymore
You shook me to the core
You shook me to the core

I don't know what to say
You don't care anyway
I'm a man in a rage
With a girl I betrayed
Here comes love
It's like honey
You can't buy it with money
You're not alone anymore
You shook me to the core
You shook me to the core
You shook me to the core
You shook me to the core

Keep it coming
Keep it coming
Keep it coming
Keep it coming
Keep it coming

    My InterpretationThis song is about falling completely into love over summer (when most people's obligations to their society is on hold) and then BAM it is autumn and everything floods you back into reality and the pressure is just so strong "we're like crystal" i.e. FRAGILE "it's not easy" well... no shit. It is about a beautiful love becoming impossible to maintain. Love is irrational while society, social obligations and responsibilities are more rational in the eyes of many, the eyes of society, but never through the eyes of love.

    MemoryReally love this song, its ironic that I listened to it and fell in love with without noticing the meaning of the words so much until now, now that me and my g/f has broken up for good. :( at least i tried everything.
