"Sense" as written by Terry Hall and Ian Zachary Broudie....
I'm flying high on something beautiful and aimless,
It's got a name but I prefer to call it nameless.
It comes and goes leaves me on a bed of splinters,
Feels like I'm living in a town closed down for winter.

The taste of Love,
The more you get, the more you want,
And all because,
The only reason is just because.
It all makes Sense,
When you're near
It all makes Sense.

I'm standing high on tiptoes looking over fences,
Waiting for somebody like you to kiss me Senseless.
I've had a bellyful of faces drawn in sadness,
I want to jump deep into tides of loving madness

    General CommentI think the line "I'm standing high in tiptoes, looking over fences/Waiting for somebody like you to kiss me senseless" is one of the sweetest, most sensitive lyrics ever penned. Bobby Wratten would be proud. This is just about the perfect pop song from a band who made it their mission to construct just that.

    General CommentA song about falling in love. Contrary to appearing cheesy, it seems to characterise the discomforting tendencies of living with being in love.

    There are instances where the reliance of the lover giving the 'fix' is reminiscent of an addiction. A 'bed of splinters' - like a withdrawal symptom; 'closed fown for winter' - isolation, no one knows how it feels; 'the more you get, the more you want' - greed and desire; 'standing high on tiptoes looking over fences' - waiting for the next fix; 'I want to jump deep into tides of loving madness' - wanting to experience the euphoria again.

    It sounds happy in melodic terms, but in lyrical structure it seems to characterise love as something less joyous and more torturous. A fascinating combination.
