  • Heaven, a gateway, a hope
    Just like a feeling inside, it's no joke
    And though it hurts me to see you this way
    Betrayed by words, I'd never heard, too hard to say
    Up, down, turn around
    Please don't let me hit the ground
    Tonight I think I'll walk alone
    I'll find my soul as I go home
    Up, down, turn around
    Please don't let me hit the ground
    Tonight I think I'll walk alone
    I'll find my soul as I go home

    Each way I turn, I know I'll always try
    To break this circle that's been placed around me
    From time to time, I find I've lost some need
    That was urgent to myself, I do believe
    Up, down, turn around
    Please don't let me hit the ground
    Tonight I think I'll walk alone
    I'll find my soul as I go home
    Up, down, turn around
    Please don't let me hit the ground
    Tonight I think I'll walk alone
    I'll find my soul as I go home

    Oh, you've got green eyes
    Oh, you've got blue eyes
    Oh, you've got grey eyes
    Oh, you've got green eyes
    Oh, you've got blue eyes
    You've got grey eyes

    And I've never seen anyone quite like you before
    No, I've never met anyone quite like you before
    Bolts from above hurt the people down below
    People in this world, we have no place to go
    Bolts from above hurt the people down below
    People in this world, we have no place to go
    Bolts from above hurt the people down below
    People in this world, we have no place to go
    Bolts from above hurt the people down below
    People in this world, we have no place to go

    Oh, it's the last time
    Oh, it's the last time
    Oh, it's the last time
    Oh, it's the last time
    Oh, it's the last time
    Oh, I've never met anyone quite like you before
    Oh no, I've never met anyone quite like you before Writer/s: Bernard Sumner, Gillian Lesley Gilbert, Peter Hook, Stephen Paul David Morris
