L. GORE (Grabbing Hands/Sonet) FLY ON THE WINDSCREEN - FINAL - 5:18 Death is everywhere There are flies on the windscreen For a start Reminding us We could be torn apart Tonight Death is everywhere There are lambs for the slaughter Waiting to die And I can sense The hours slipping by Tonight Come here Kiss me Now Come here Kiss me Now Death is everywhere The more I look The more I see The more I feel A sense of urgency Tonight Come here Touch me Kiss me Touch me Now Touch me Touch me There are flies on the windscreen There are lambs for the slaughter There are flies on the windscreen Come here Touch me Kiss me Touch me Now Touch me Touch me M. L. GORE (Grabbing Hands/Sonet) A QUESTION OF LUST - 4:20 Fragile Like a baby in your arms Be gentle with me I'd never willingly Do you harm Apologies Are all you seem to from me But just like a child You make me smile When you care for me And you know... It's a question of lust It's a question of trust It's a question of not letting What we've built up Crumble to dust It is all of there things and more That keep us together Independence Is still important for us though (we realise) It's easy to make The stupid mistake Of letting go (do you know what I mean) My weakness You know each and every one (it frightens me) But I need to drink More than you seem to think Before I'm anyone's And you know... It's a question of lust It's a question of trust It's a question of not letting What we've built up Crmble to dust It is all of these things and more That keep us together Kiss me goodbye When I'm on my own But you know what I'd Rather be home It's a question of lust It's a question of trust It's a question of not letting What we've built up Crumble to dust It is all of these things and more That keep us together M. L. GORE (Grabbing Hands/Sonet) SOMETIMES - 1:53 Sometimes Only sometimes I question everything And I'm the first to admit If you catch me in a mood like this I can be tiring Even embarassing But you must Feel the same When you look around You can't tell me honestly You're happy with what you see Oh sometimes Only sometimes You must be... You must be... As embarassing as me Sometimes M. L. GORE (Grabbing Hands/Sonet) IT DOESN'T MATTER TWO - 2:50 As I lay here with you The shame lies with us We talk of love and trust That doesn't matter Though we may be the last in the world We feel like pioneers Telling hopes and fears To one another And oh what a feeling Inside of me It might last for an hour Wounds aren't healing Inside of me Though it feels good now I know it's only for now The feeling is intense You grip me with your etes And then I realise It doesn't matter M. L. GORE (Grabbing Hands/Sonet) A QUESTION OF TIME - 4:10 I've got to get to you first Before they do It's just a question of time Before they lay their hands on you And make you just like the reast I've got to get to you first It's just a question of time Well now you're only fifteen And you look good I'll take you under my wing Somebody should They've persuasive ways And you'll believe what they say It's just a question of time It's running out for you It won't be long Until you'll do Exactly what they want you to I can see them now Hanging around To mess you up To strip you down And have their fun With my little one It's just a question of time It's running out for you It won't be long Until you'll do Exactly what they want you to It won't be long Until you'll do Exactly what they want you to Sometimes I don't blame them For wanting you You look good And they need something to do Until I look at you And then I condemn them I know my kind What goes on in our minds It's just a question of time It should be better It's just a question of time It should be better with you It's just a question of time M. L. GORE (Grabbing Hands/Sonet) STRIPPED - 4:16 Come with me Into the trees We'll lay on the grass And let the hours pass Take my hand Come back to the land Let's get away Just for one day Let me see you Stripped down to the bone Let me see you Stripped down to the bone Metropolis Has nothing on this You're breathing in fumes I taste when we kiss Take my hands Come back to the land Where everything's ours For a few hours Let me see you Stripped down to the bone Let me see you Stripped down to the bone Let me hear you Make decisions Without your television Let me hear you speaking Just for me Let me see you Stripped down to the bone Let me hear your speaking Just for me Let me see you Stripped down to the bone Let me hear you crying Just for me M.

L. GORE (Grabbing Hands/Sonet) WORLD FULL OF NOTHING - 2:50 Close Naked Skin on skin Tears are falling Tears of joy Her first boy His first girl Makes a change In a world full of nothing Though it's not love It means something She's lonely And he says It's for her only That he lusts She doesn't trust him Nothing is true But he will do In a world full of nothing Though it's not love It means something It's easy to slip away And believe it all Though it's not love It means something M. L. GORE (Grabbing Hands/Sonet) DRESSED IN BLACK - 2:32 She's dressed in black again And I'm falling down again Down to the floor again I'm beggin for more again But oh what can you do When she's dressed in black My mind wanders endlessly On paths where she's leading me With games that she likes to play And words that she doesn't say Not when we're alone And she's dressed in black As a picture of herself She's a picture of the world A reflection of you A reflection of me And it's all there to see If you only give in To the fire within Dressed in black again Shadows fall onto me As she stands there over me And waits to encompass me I lay here halplessly But oh what can you do When she's dressed in black Dressed in black again M. L. GORE (Grabbing Hands/Sonet) NEW DRESS - 3:42 Sex jibe husband murders wife Bomb blast victim fights for life Girl Thirteen attacked with knife Princess Di is wearing a new dress Jet airliner shot from sky Famine horror, millions die Earthquake terror figures rise Princess Di is wearing a new dress You can't change the world But you can change the facts And when you change the facts You change points of view If you change points of view You may change a vote And when you change a vote You may change the world In black townships fires blaze Prospects better premier says Within sight are golden days Princess Di is wearing a new dress You can't change the world But you can change the facts And when you change the facts You change points of view If you change points of view You may change a vote And when you change a vote You may change the world Princess Di is wearing a new dress M.
