She's Lost Control

Album: Unknown Pleasures (1979)
  • Confusion in her eyes that says it all
    She's lost control
    And she's clinging to the nearest passer-by
    She's lost control

    And she gave away the secrets of her past and said
    I've lost control again
    And a voice that told her when and where to act, she said
    I've lost control again

    And she turned around and took me by the hand and said
    I've lost control again
    And how I'll never know just why or understand, she said
    I've lost control again

    And she screamed out kicking on her side and said
    I've lost control again
    And seized up on the floor, I thought she'd died, she said
    I've lost control again

    She's lost control again
    She's lost control
    She's lost control again
    She's lost control

    Well I had to 'phone her friend to state my case and say
    She's lost control again
    And she showed up all the errors and mistakes and said
    And said I've lost control again

    But she expressed herself in many different ways, until
    She lost control again
    And walked upon the edge of no escape, ang laughed
    I've lost control again

    She's lost control again
    She's lost control
    She's lost control again
    She's lost control

    I can live a little better with a message of lies
    When the darkness broke in, I said I broke down and cried
    I can live a little, say the wanted line
    When the day is dull, when the day has come
    To lose control Writer/s: BERNARD SUMNER, IAN KEVIN CURTIS, PETER HOOK, STEPHEN PAUL DAVID MORRIS
