"Alien" as written by Andy Bell and Vince Clarke....
Cuts to the quick, pure emotion a trip
No world of life
Pressed to your lips
We collide, slowly twist, our dance alive
Seeps into the ground, kisses the earth and I am found

Loves young dream could be alien, strange ways I would fly
Tuning love like a radio, whispering goodbye

Just so it seems, softly potent, serene
Vacant and shy
You are everywhere, under my skin and in my hair


Seeps into the ground, kisses the earth and I am found

[Chorus: x3]

Love some dream could be serene, so alien

    General CommentThis song originally was written to be about Vince Clarke's Japanese girlfriend of the time. The lyrics, roughly so, were "Japanese love could seem alien" - Presumably due to the cultural differences. The lyrics were changed, possibly to keep from offending people with its insightful (and innocent in intent) comments.
