I'm not going down on my knees Begging you to adore me Can't you see it's misery And torture for me When I'm misunderstood Try as hard as you can I've tried as hard as I could To make you see How important it is for me Here is a plea From my heart to you Nobody knows me As well as you do You know how hard it is for me To shake the disease That takes hold of my tongue In situations like these Understand me Some people have to be Permanently together Lovers devoted To each other forever Now I've got things to do And I've said before That I know you have too When I'm not there In spirit I'll be there
2.
When I'm with you baby I go out of my head And I just can't get enough And I just can't get enough All the things you do to me And everything you said I just can't get enough I just can't get enough We slip and slide as we fall in love And I just can't seem to get enough of We walk together We're walking down the street And I just can't get enough And I just can't get enough Every time I think of you I know we have to meet And I just can't get enough I just can't get enough It's getting hotter It's a burning love And I just can't seem to get enough of And when it rains You're shining down for me And I just can't get enough And I just can't get enough Just like a rainbow You know you set me free And I just can't get enough And I just can't get enough You're like an angel And you give me your love And I just can't seem to get enough of

ANY SECOND NOW (portions) She remembered all the shadows and the doubts The same film Vivid pictures like a wall that's standing empty And the night so still And I need to change you like the words I'm reading Don't you understand This the warning and the message I remember As you touch my hand BUT NOT TONIGHT Oh God it's raining But I'm not complaining It's filling me up with new life The stars in the sky Bring tears to my eyes They're lighting my way tonight And I haven't felt so alive In years Just for a day On a day like today I'll get away from this constant debauchery The wind in my hair Makes me so aware How good it is to live tonight And I haven't felt so alive In years The moon Is shining in the sky Reminding me Of so many other nights But they're not like tonight Oh God it's raining And I'm not containing My pleasure at being so wet Here on my own All on my own How good it feels to be alone tonight And I haven't felt so alive In years The moon Is shining in the sky Reminding me Of so many other nights When my eyes had been so red I'd been mistaken for dead But not tonight

Someone will call Something will fall And smash on the floor Without reading the text Know what comes next Seen it before And it's painful Things must change We must rearrange them Or we'll have to estrange them All that I'm saying A game's not worth playing Over and over again You're the one I like best You retain my interest You're the only one If it wasn't for you Don't know what I'd do Unpredictable like the sun And the rainfall
5.
We're lying by the orange sky Two million miles across the land Scattered to the highest high Expect they'll either laugh or cry No sex, no consequence, no sympathy You're good enough to heat Two minute warning Two minutes later When time has come My days are numbered The dawning of another year Marks time for those who understand One in four still here While you and I go hand in hand No radio, no sound, no sin, no sanctuary So welcome to your last The sun, the solitude, the cemetery So welcome to your last

Somebody 03:37
I want somebody to share Share the rest of my life Share my innermost thoughts Know my intimate details Someone who'll stand by my side And give me support And in return She'll get my support She will listen to me When I want to speak About the world we live in And life in general Though my views may be wrong They may even be perverted She'll hear me out And won't easily be converted To my way of thinking In fact she'll often disagree But at the end of it all She will understand me I want somebody who cares For me passionately With every thought and With every breath Someone who'll help me see things In a different light All the things I detest I will almost like I don't want to be tied To anyone's strings I'm carefully trying to steer clear of Those things But when I'm asleep I want somebody Who will put their arms around me And kiss me tenderly Though things like this Make me sick In a case like this I'll get away with it

I heard it from my friends About the things you said I heard it from my friends About the things you said But they know me better than that They know me better than that They know my weaknesses I never tried to hide them They know my weaknesses I never denied them I heard it from my friends About the things you said I heard it from my friends About the things you said How can a view become so twisted How can a view become so twisted They know my weaknesses I never tried to hide them They know my weaknesses You tried them I get so carried away You brought me down to earth I thought we had something precious Now I know what it's worth I heard it from my friends About the things you said I heard it from my friends About the things you said I've never felt so disappointed Never felt so disappointed They know my weaknesses I never tried to hide them They know my weaknesses Thought that you liked them They know me better than that

You had something to hide Should have hidden it, shouldn't you Now you're not satisfied With what you're being put through It's just time to pay the price For not listening to advice And deciding in your youth On the policy of truth Things could be so different now It used to be so civilised You will always wonder how It could have been if you'd only lied It's too late to change events It's time to face the consequence For delivering the proof In the policy of truth Never again is what you swore The time before Never again is what you swore The time before Now you're standing there tongue tied You'd better learn your lesson well Hide what you have to hide And tell what you have to tell You'll see your problems multiplied If you continually decide To faithfully pursue The policy of truth Never again is what you swore The time before Never again is what you swore The time before

about

In 1987 Shawn was diagnosed with HIV as a child and given two years to live. A few years later he met his favorite band, Depeche Mode, as a final wish: that was 25 years ago. Today, Shawn is alive and well. This cover album was created to raise money and awareness for the MTV Staying Alive Foundation, which funds HIV prevention programs around the world. Help Shawn/Synthetic Division celebrate his survival by helping others.
