"Messages" as written by and Paul David/mc Cluskey Humphreys....
It worries me this kind of thing
How you hope to live alone
And occupy your waking hours
We're taking sides again
I just wept I couldn't understand
Why you started this again

And every day you send me more
It makes it worse is this a plan of yours
To ensure I don't forget
I'd write and tell you that I've burnt them all
But you never send me your address
And I've, I've kept them anyway

So don't ask me if I think it's true
That communication can bring hope to those
Who have gone their separate ways
It hardly touched me when it should have then
But memories are uncertain friends
When recalled by messages

Coded messages
Poison letters

    General CommentThis song is so underrated as an O.M.D. great. The music and lyrics, as well as Paul Hs' vocals, prove the old axiom that the whole is greater than the sum of it's parts.

    General CommentCorrection- this song features Andy's vocals, not Paul's.

    The lyrics of this song I find pretty touching. I think it's about someone who is being bombarded by mail from his ex-lover, who he is happy to forget but she keeps sending him mail which gives him memories of their relationship, and second thoughts as to whether or not he should have ended it. "Memories are uncertain friends when recalled by Messages"... that says it all really.

    General Comment"Coded messages
    poison letters..."

    They give false dreams that can never be
    because, if they could be, they would be.
    That's why he deemed them poison.
