Starving searching this barren wasteland Trying to grasp being this alone Pleading for a breath of fresh air, someone's standing on my chest Dying I'm asphyxiating myself Break myself slave to my weakness choke on my words Oh I'm drowning and I feel so alone The lights are on and I wish I was home My lips are screaming pretty nothings My ears are bleeding for want of words, fuck words I need actions Hope as left me fucking shattered Someone's standing on my chest Alone would be a pleasant change from here How do you gauge loneliness how you ever felt so alone It feels like the light will never reach me here I am choking back my longing for shed tears So strangulated by my lonesome fears plead Don't worry too much, it only hurts when I breathe

"Pretty In Pink" by Psychedelic Furs was released in 1981. Five years later, it inspired a movie of the same name starring Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer. The song was remixed for the re-release to have more Pop appeal.
"Cruise" climbed from 6-5 on the Hot 100 in its 34th week. In doing so it set a record for the slowest ascent to the Top 5 in the chart's history, which was beaten by Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" 42-week clamber to #4 three weeks later.
