New Order anyone?

I don't write often about music, but I was watching a repeat of an old Later With Jools Holland on TV yesterday, and New Order were guests. The first song to open the show was Crystal, which captured my attention after the first guitar chords... I think it is one of the best songs they have ever written.

We're like crystal, we break easy
I'm a poor man, if you leave me
I'm applauded, then forgotten
It was summer, now it's autumn

I don't know what to say, you don't care anyway
I'm a man in a rage (just tell me what I've got to do), with a girl I betrayed
Here comes love, it's like honey
You can't buy it with money, you're not alone anymore,
(whenever you're here with me),
You shock me to the core, you shock me to the core

We're like crystal, it's not easy
With your love, you could feed me
Every man, and every woman
Needs someone, So keep it coming
Keep it coming, keep it coming, keep it coming

I don't know what to say, you don't care anyway
I'm a man in a rage (just tell me what I've got to do), with a girl I betrayed
Here comes love, it's like honey
You can't buy it with money, you're not alone anymore,
(whenever you're here with me),
You shock me to the core, you shock me to the core

Keep it coming, keep it coming, keep it coming...

thank you - your words said it ... what i couldn't... too soon... there was a summer yet to be had... i didn't expect to wake and have her not be there

so thank you for your words - reminded me of the neil diamond song - done too soon
