"Vicious Streak" as written by and Bernard (gb 2)/hook Sumner....

What am I gonna do ?
I feel like I'm on fire
If you only knew
That you're the object of desire...

I keep hanging on, keep hanging on
And I swear by God that you're the only one
I keep hanging on, keep hanging on
And I swear by God that it won't be long

My aim is true
My vision is clear
My thoughts are crude
Whenever you're near

I keep hanging on, keep hanging on
And I swear by God that you're the only one
I keep hanging on, keep hanging on
And I swear by God that it won't be long

I keep hanging on

You've got a vicious streak
For someone so young
You're like solar flare
In the rising sun

I keep hanging on
I keep hanging on
I keep hanging on
I keep hanging on

    General Commenta pretty dark song about being in deeply love with someone who is out of control, young and not ready to settle down...and believeing that you can and will wait untill they are ready to be with you. (bad idea hehe)

    General CommentI agree with hypemike, but I could never think in that interpretation :P

    I could only see that was about love :P

    My Interpretationmore or less agree with hypemike, except its not even a case of the younger person being able to settle down. They are ambivalent about even getting invovled in the first place, which is the singer keeps "hanging on"

    General CommentI really love the line about her being a solar flair in the rising son, like she's so careless and reckless with him and she doesn't even get it. One of New Order's more underrated songs for sure.
