Song Lyric Sunday (4/1/18) – Days

Helen’s prompt for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday is the word “days”. I must say, this one had me stumped. I am usually able to post one right away. Not this week, though. Not sure why. I had a few choices, but none of them them felt right. It may be that the Wulf is feeling a little strange. It happens, so I decided to go with it. To follow the strange. Good thing I did. I was just about to tap out for this week when it hit me. Embrace it, Wulf. Embrace the strange. So I give you a song by Depeche Mode. Strangelove.

 

There’ll be times
When my crimes
Will seem almost unforgivable
I give in to sin
Because you have to make this life livable
But when you think I’ve had enough
From your sea of love
I’ll take more than another river full
Yes, and I’ll make it all worthwhile
I’ll make your heart smile
Strangelove
Strange highs and strange lows
Strangelove
That’s how my love goes
Strangelove
Will you give it to me?
Will you take the pain
I will give to you?
Again and again
And will you return it?
There’ll be days
When I’ll stray
I may appear to be
Constantly out of reach
I give in to sin
Because I like to practice what I preach
I’m not trying to say
I’ll have it all my way
I’m always willing to learn
When you’ve got something to teach
And I’ll make it all worthwhile
I’ll make your heart smile
Pain, will you return it?
I’ll say it again, pain
Pain, will you return it?
I’ll say it again, pain
Pain, will you return it?
I’ll say it again, pain
Pain, will you return it?
I won’t say it again
Strangelove
Strange highs and strange lows
Strangelove
That’s how my love goes
Strangelove
Will you give it to me?
Strangelove
Strange highs and strange lows
Strangelove
That’s how my love goes
Strangelove
Will you give it to me?
Strangelove
Strange highs and strange lows
Strangelove
That’s how my love goes
Strangelove
Will you give it to me?
I give in
Again and again
I give in
Will you give it to me?
I give in
I’ll say it again
I give in
I give in
Again and again
I give in
That’s how my love goes
I give in
I’ll say it again
I give in
I give in

    1. I got to see them once myself. It was actually the tour for this album. They were great, and OMD opened for them. Definitely a departure for me with the types of bands I went to see live, but that was when I really began to expand my musical appreciation.

      1. It would have been in the 80s. Once at Ontario Place (which is now the Molsen Ampitheatre, I think) and once downtown. So much great energy–when they started “Just Can’t Get Enough” the crowd went wild!

  1. You know, I didn’t really get into Depeche Mode, which is true of much of the 80s music. However, I’m finding that the more you all post this type of music, the more I’m loving it. I really enjoyed this one! Thanks for sharing!
