(originally performed by Modern English)
Moving forward using all my breath
Making love to you was never second best
I saw the world thrashing all around your face
Never really knowing it was always mesh and lace
I'll stop the world and melt with you
You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
There's nothing you and I won't do
I'll stop the world and melt with you
Dream of better lives the kind which never hate
Dropped in the state of imaginary grace
I made a pilgrimage to save this human race
Never comprehending a race that long gone by
I'll stop the world and melt with you
You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
There's nothing you and I won't do
I'll stop the world and melt with you
The future's open wide
I'll stop the world and melt with you
I've seen some changes but it's getting better all the time
There's nothing you and I won't do
I'll stop the world and melt with you

    General CommentThe original song/video was totally trippy. But they remake this song very nicely.

    General CommentI love this song. I can't help it. Modern English was great, but the cover is even better. I love the first couple lines "Moving forward using all our breath/ Making love to you was never second best/ I saw the world crashing all around your face/ Never really knowing it was always. . mesh and lace. . ." It's a classic.

    General CommentThis dong to me means riding along with your friends listening and singing three part hamronies and driving with the windows down singing at the top of your lungs. Good times to a good song by a great band.

    General CommentI love saves the day. I really think they're amazing. Every time I hear chris sing my heart pounds hard and I just get dizzy. I'm so jealous of you SurferGirlKat! I can't believe you met them! What were they like? It would be so cool if you could e-mail me (sailnstarz@aol.com) i would love to hear about them. I only saw them in concert 2 times. The first time I fell in love with them, 2nd time at pop disaster tour, camden new jersey, amazing!!
