There's an army on the dance floor It's a fashion with a gun, my love In a room without a door A kiss is not enough in
Love my way, it's a new road I follow where my mind goes, they'd put us on a railroad They'd dearly make us pay for laughing in their faces and making it our way There's emptiness behind their eyes, there's dust in all their hearts They just want to steal us all and take us all apart, but not in
Love my way, it's a new road I follow where my mind goes Love my way, it's a new road I follow where my mind goes
Love my way, it's a new road I follow where my mind goes, so swallow all your tears, my love And put on your new face You can never win or lose, if you don't run the race
Yeahhh, yeahhh, yeahhh Aw ooh, aw ooh, aw ooh, aw ooh

Scott Usa from United StatesI love this song. 1982 I was 13 yrs old. I have a very eclectic music library. To me, this so g is clearly about the holocaust. "There's an army on the dance floor" Clearly the streets the Jewish community walked upon. "They'd put us on a railroad They'd dearly make us pay For laughing in their faces And making it our way There's emptiness behind their eyes There's dust in all their hearts They just want to steal us all And take us all apart"
The Jews were put on railcars, they paid dearly, they were stolen and taken apart as a community. Holocaust.
Melinda from AustraliaThis is an Iconic song of 1982. If you were cool in 1982 this song was your song. No one knew back then it was about a gay issue. We didn’t have access to info like today on the net. Nor access to exact lyrics. At all. (Occasionally they were included on album covers) We had to guess lyrics.
Love My Way was popular because it was an Art New Wave song . But they had a kinda 1960’s feel. It was a very serious song. And quite haunting. Like a New Order Song or Joy Division. Plus the lead singer was good looking. I believe Boy George’s great 1st song, Do you Really Want To Hurt Me ..was very popular when The Pyschedelic Furs, Love My Way came out. They were kind of similar.
Before Boy George quickly descended into unpopularity with us teens, because his music moved into silly pop songs. That only appealed to pre-teens. Perhaps that was when Boy George descended into serious heroin addiction too. Probably. His descent and unpopularity certainly cleared the field for more talented bands to get noticed. And in the long run, early 1980’s bands like The Psychedelic Furs get the respect today and admiration they deserve. Love My Way by The Psychedelic Furs was so iconic in the 1980’s it was included in the decade defining 1985 movie Pretty In Pink.
Tony from San DiegoAbsolutely amazing song. Very cool, did not know that Todd Rundgren played the marimbas on this and produced it.
Phil Oakey recorded his vocals for "Don't You Want Me" in the studio bathroom. The recording was disrupted by guitarist Jo Callis reaching through an open window from outside to repeatedly flush one of the toilets.
