"Stop Dead" as written by and Robert James Smith....
Let me forget, let me forget
Or let me go, let me go
I'll keep it quiet as a whisper
I'll keep it low, low, low
Low, low, low low, low

Never the biggest word I ever heard
S-s-stop dead, stop dead, s-s-stop dead
Getting too close, getting too close

Before you even opened your eyes
I've moved about a million ways
I've killed about a million people
And filled about half a day

Before you even opened your eyes
You had to have to ask me who
L-l-l-love it, I mean you

Let me forget, let me forget
Or let me go, let me go
I'll keep it quiet as a whisper
I'll keep it low, low, low
Low, low, low, low, low

Never the biggest word I ever heard
S-s-stop dead, stop dead, s-s-stop dead
You're getting too close, getting too

Face is in your hands
You looked into my eyes
You said I tasted right
And swallowed me alive

Face is in your hands
You looked into my eyes
You said I tasted right
And swallowed me alive

Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

Stay there until day
Stay there until morn
Stay there until light

    General CommentNot entirely sure about the meaning behind this song, but I know that it's one one Simon Gallup's favorites (because of the bass-line). The song was going to make it on the album right up to the last minute, but never did make it much to Simon's dissappointment. (bummer...)

    I think that has something to do about cheating on someone. I'm not sure but I can see it meaning that before she'd even realized he'd gone astray he'd cheated with a ton of people.

    General CommentRobert Smith said, in an interview, that this song was about meeting his match...whatever that means.
