The Psychedelic Furs

The Ghost in You | Get a Room

FROM ‘MARA, MARIETTA’
Part Ten Chapter 17

On the way through Carmarthen, then, we stopped at Avis and I chose a car. Thus it was in a Ford Fiesta, with The Psychedelic Furs for company, that I drove the last twenty-five miles to our destination, following your MX-5.

Richard Butler, ‘Sister Europe’, Germany 1983

THE GHOST IN YOU
Richard Butler, Tim Butler

A man in my shoes runs a light and
All the papers lie tonight but
Falling over you
Is the news of the day

Angels fall like rain
And love (love, love, love…) is all of heaven away

Inside you the time moves
And she don’t fade
The ghost in you
She don’t fade
Inside you the time moves
And she don’t fade

The race is on
I’m on your side and
Hearing you my engines die
I’m in a mood for you
Or running away

Stars come down in you
And love (love, love, love…) you can’t give it away

Inside you the time moves…

Don’t you go
It makes no sense when
All your talk and supermen
Just take away the time
And get in the way
Ain’t it just like rain
And love (love, love, love…) is only heaven away

Inside you the time moves…

GET A ROOM
Richard Butler, John Ashton, Tim Butler

Don’t want order, it won’t come
There’s no way that it goes on
I was tied and I’m undone
I’ve got all that you don’t want

You want order, I want more
You want it all and all of it’s yours
You want shelter, I get a room
I get a room

My confusion leaves me cold
I’ve got nothing here to hold
All that’s gold will never shine
It was nothing, nevermind

I want time, I want it now
My confusion’s getting me down
You want shelter, I get a room
I get a room

What of yours is there to keep?
To be there where you sleep
I’m not here to tie your feet
Hold a hand upon your sleeve

Here’s a nail to hang a wall
A place to lose it all
A note to hide behind the door
I get a room

Where you sleep I laid awake
I saw every time you fake
I held on the hand that takes
And you hate it when I break

You want order, I want more
You want it all and all of it’s yours
You want shelter, I get a room
