Thieves Like Us

Album: The Best of New Order (1984)
Charted: 18
  • I've watched your face for a long time
    It's always the same
    I've studied the cracks and the wrinkles
    You were always so vain
    Well, now you live your life like a shadow
    In the pouring rain
    Oh, it's called love
    Yes, it's called love
    Oh, it's called love
    And it belongs to us
    Oh, it dies so quickly
    It grows so slowly
    But when it dies, it dies for good
    It's called love
    And it belongs to everyone but us

    I've lived my life in the valleys
    I've lived my life on the hills
    I've lived my life on alcohol
    I've lived my life on pills
    But it's called love
    And it belongs to us
    It's called love
    And it's the only thing that's worth living for
    It's called love
    And it belongs to us
    It's called love
    Yes it's called love

    Oh, love is found in the east and west
    But when love is at home, it's the best
    Love is the cure for every evil
    Love is the air that supports the eagle
    It's called love
    And it's so un-cool
    It's called love
    And somehow it's become unmentionable
    It's called love
    And it belongs to every one of us
    It's called love
    And it cuts your life like a broken knife

    Oh love, love, love, love, love
    It's called love
    And it belongs to us
    It's called love, love, love, love, love
    It's called love
    And it belongs to everyone of us Writer/s: GILLIAN LESLEY GILBERT, PETER HOOK, STEPHEN PAUL DAVID MORRIS, BERNARD SUMNER, ARTHUR HENRY BAKER
