"Bloodsport" as written by Chris Corner, Liam Coverdale-howe, Ian Pickering, William Currie, Midge Ure, Rusty Egan, Steve Strange, Barry Anthony Adamson, John Alexander Mcgeoch and David Tomlinson....
I want to be a kid again
Come down having Sunday best
See me staying home bunking school
Knowing wrong from right just rules

I wish I'd never seen your face
Better done wonder phase
I need an echo, not your praise
Straying from the god you nailed

My mother, my mother, my mother never told
My mother, my mother, my mother never told me
Love is just a bloodsport
Love is just a bloodsport

'Cause love is just a bloodsport
Love is just a bloodsport

Sex and love is not a game
A game is something you can win
Maybe something kind of fun
'Cause love is just a bloodsport, son

My mother, my mother, my mother never told
My mother, my mother, my mother never told me

Never told me
Never told me

'Cause love is just a bloodsport
Love is just a bloodsport
'Cause love is just a bloodsport
Love is just a bloodsport

'Cause love is just a bloodsport
Love is just a bloodsport
'Cause love is just a bloodsport
Love is just a bloodsport

    General CommentI think the meaning of this song is pretty straight-forward. Love IS war, and, like any war, there will be casualties. So true.

    I was listening to this song the other day, and when I heard those lyrics I thought, "he did NOT just say that.." Flawless.

    General CommentThe lyric makes so much sense. And I so agree that love is a war. Take the injuries and face the ruin. Rebuild everything so that they can be destroyed next time. Anyway, sneaker pimps, or maybe I am X, are so talented.

    General Commentthe lyrics are wrong. ehem... correction:

    I want to be a kid again
    Combed down hair and sunday best
    See me staying out bunking school
    Knowing wrong from right just rules

    I wish I'd never seen your face
    "Better door than window" phase
    I need an echo not your praise
    Straying from the point you nailed

    My mother, my mother, my mother never told
    My mother, my mother, my mother never told me
    Love is just a blood sport, love is just a blood sport
    Cause love is just a blood sport, love is just a blood sport

    Sex and love is not a game
    A game is something you can win
    Maybe something kind of fun
    Cause love is just a blood sport son
