"Behind Closed Doors" as written by and Bernard (gb 2)/hook Sumner....
There is a secret place
Underneath a tree
Where if you go and haste
You will find a key
The key will open doors
And you will look inside
The things that you will see
Will open up your eyes

At any given time
On every other street
The city comes to life
Though everyone's asleep
A man beats up his wife
He doesn't want to keep
Behind closed doors
They're in retreat

I don't know what makes me stay
The city life just ain't the same
There's something wrong with kids today
I blame the parents anyway
There's no hope
No one to trust
I can't cope
It's obvious
Please don't take my drugs away
I'm gonna give them up someday

There is a place somewhere
That I could call a home
I'd live without a care
I'd never be alone
One day I will get there
I feel it in my bones
I check upon the scores
I listen to The Coors
Behind closed doors

Behind closed doors
Behind closed doors
Behind closed doors
They still want more
Behind closed doors

    General CommentThis song is a good interpretation of people's hidden feelings. Sometimes we see things that we don't necessarly want to see and we keep quiet. There are also those things that nobody sees. Very NewOrder lyrics and one of the best b-sides!

    General CommentI can't believe Bernie actually listens to The Corrs behind close doors!!! Haha, but seriously, these lyrics are very clever, all about what people are like when they think no one's watching... and that it's only then that people are themselves. Very true!
