Cries and Whispers Lyrics

Hope and desire *
The antique sea
Hopes and fears are
All we ever see
We made a contract
In a field of snow

A single release now
And he`s saying
Out of the woods and trees
Across the rain
>From out of the nighttime
Somebody screams
He`s on his way somewhere
All like he`s been nowhere *
I don`t know
Nobody knows

Small girl is lost here
On a frozen floor
What do they want with me?
What do they want with me?
I don`t know
Nobody knows
Nobody even tries
To find out what they want to know
* suggestions welcome on these lines

Surely this rivals 1963 and In A Lonely Place for the title of all-time greatest New Order b-side.

By the way - so many NO songs are rumoured to be about Ian and his suicide, but I think this is one of the genuine ones.

I'm inclined to agree with imrazor - it definitely sounds like it's about Ian Curtis.

"All flight departures assembled not returned" makes me think of how they were due to leave for their tour of America just a day or so after Ian had committed suicide.

Or maybe it's about the change from Joy Division to New Order.
