"You Surround Me" as written by Andy Bell and Vince Clarke....
Don't ever let me take you for granted
You've got your finger on the pulse of my soul
Let me place a kiss in the small of your back
Love and protect you from the evils of this world

Oh baby don't ever leave me stranded
Whoever said that the streets were paved with gold
Well I'm afraid that we're all sadly mistaken
There's nothing here 'til you have someone to hold

I love you with all the joy of living
'Til the lights go down in New York City
It's a special love affair
And there's magic in the air

You gotta shake me down
Bring me 'round to my senses
'Til I'm lost and found
And surround me with your senses

If love wasn't here would we reinvent it?
Oh take me down to the very root of my soul
Oh baby say it as if you really mean it
And feel the passion work it's way up through your skin

I love you with all the joy of living
'Til the lights go down in New York City
It's a special love affair
And there's magic in the air

You gotta shake me down
Bring me 'round to my senses
'Til I'm lost and found
And surround me with your senses

Let me take you by the hand
And we can go and find a brand new world
Starlight - star bright

Let me take you by the hand
And lead you to a safe place in this world

You gotta shake me down
Bring me 'round to my senses
'Til I'm lost and found
And surround me with your senses

You gotta shake me down
Bring me 'round to my senses
'Til I'm lost and found
And surround me with your senses

You gotta shake me down
Bring me 'round to my senses
'Til I'm lost and found
And surround me with your senses

You gotta shake me down
Bring me 'round to my senses
'Til I'm lost and found
And surround me with your senses

You gotta shake me down
Bring me 'round to my senses
'Til I'm lost and found
And surround me with your senses

You gotta shake me down
Bring me 'round to my senses
'Til I'm lost and found
And surround me with your senses

    General CommentCan't believe no one has commented on this yet. It's the perfect love song about when a love affair is just beggining but you just know it's real even from the very start. I love the image of new york city lights doing down, it's a very sutil metaphore about something that never shuts down. Anyways, this song is full of light, that's what I like the most about Erasure, they always seem to give you a phisical realm through their music and lyrics, it trascends the plain sound.
