The Human League The Path Of Least Resistance

Faced with the choice, what would you say?

The path of least resistance, It seems the only way

But can we look a little further? To level four I think

Self-belief’s the answer, and not another drink

The safe method, the only way, you rationalise your course

Stay part of the crowd, and never find the source

Feel wanted, feel numb, just stay as you are

The truth is – comfort kills, and you don’t need that car

So sad, the early grave, when all the fun’s for free

Start digging the early grave, and keep it warm for me

Faced with the choice, what would you say?

The path of least resistance, It seems the only way

But let’s look a little further, to level four, I think

Self-belief’s the answer, and not another drink

The safe method, the only way, you rationalise your course

Stay a part of the crowd, and never find the source

Feel wanted, feel numb, just stay as you are

The truth is, comfort kills, and you don’t need that car

The Human League The Stars Are Going Out

Naked under bedclothes. Fallen to the floor. Hot

anticipation. Causes slumber to withdraw. Are you going

out tonight? Will the evening be alright or more?

The stars are going out. The stars are going out. We used

to be so hot. A million kilowatt or more.

Sifting through the wreckage. At a hundred miles an hour.

Searching for a night club. A source of worship power.

Grabbing worn out cast off lovers. Throwing out a trail of

need or more. I never called you baby. Made the necessary

motion. Swallowed pride for peace of mind. While

swimming in your ocean. I always had to fit. Or be aware of

it or more.

The stars are going out. The stars are going out. We used

to be so tough. But just not tough enough that’s all.

The stars are going out. The stars are going out. We used

to be so bad. But that was just a fad that’s all.

The stars are going out. The stars are going out.

The stars are going out. The stars are going out. We used

to be so bright. But now we shake with fright that’s all.

The stars are going out. The stars are going out. We used

to be so bad. But that was just a fad that’s all.

The stars are going out. The stars are going out. We used

to be so tough. But just not tough enough that’s all.

The Human League So Hurt

It’s hard I know to understand

Nothing lasts for ever

The things you used to say and do

The places you would go to meet

When you were together

You set your face against the tide

The harsh words that were spoken

But after all the anger

The shouting and the tears

You found your heart was broken

Fight the tears

Fight the fever

Don’t give in

Soul deceiver

So hurt

With the pain you can’t hide

So lost

And lonely inside

So hurt

When the feeling has died

So hurt

With the pain you can’t hide

So lost

And lonely inside

So hurt

When the feeling has died

Just like the clock went back ten years

To make a new beginning

To work out how to live your life

To take the board and play the game

And recognise you’re winning

Your memories mean nothing now

You’re just a little older

Moving forward with the crowd

Silent fears but laughing loud

Not wiser but just bolder

Fight the tears

Fight the fever

Fight the hurt

Don’t give up

So hurt

With the pain you can’t hide

So lost

And lonely inside

So hurt

When the feeling has died

So hurt

With the pain you can’t hide

So lost

And lonely inside

So hurt

When the feeling has died

The Human League You Remind Me Of Gold

Baby, when I think about you

And that’s when I think

I think about gold

(You remind me of gold)

And when I see the sunrise in the sky

And when I hear your brakes come squealing by

I forget

(Everything I’ve been told)

(You remind me of gold

You remind me of gold

You remind me of gold)

Baby, I always think about you

I think of the life and glory you hold

(You remind me of gold)

And even though there was no sun today

And though you are a thousand miles away

(You remind me of gold)

(You remind me of gold

You remind me of gold

You remind me of gold)

(You remind me of gold

You remind me of gold

You remind me of gold

You remind me of gold

You remind me of gold

You remind me of gold).

The Human League Liar

I can’t help this feeling

Every time you go away

Something you’re concealing

Something you won’t say

Will you look in my eyes

When I ask you where you’ve been

Say what you’ve been doing

Tell me who you’ve seen

Tell another tale

Name another name

Dish a little dirt

To evade the frame

Change the tale you tell

From the one you swore

Claim you never said

What you said before

Liar

Liar

Liar

Liar

Think you are the winner

No one else is in the game

You can keep the prizes

You can keep the shame

Tell another tale

Get a friend’s support

Add the fine detail

As an afterthought

Never any doubt

Never any shame

Under no account

Ever take the blame

Liar

Liar

How can I stay

When your words give you away

Liar

Liar

How can I stay

How can I stay

(Why should I stay

Why should I stay

Why should I stay

Why should I stay)

Liar

(Pathological)

Liar

How can I stay

When your lies give you away

Liar

(You’re a liar)

Liar

(Such a liar)

How can I stay

Is there one born every day

Liar

(You’re a liar)

Liar

(Such a liar)

How can I stay

When your words drive me away

Liar

(Such a liar).

The Human League Boys And Girls

Boys and girls come out to play, playing till they’re old and grey

Time to leave the old school suit, grown ups can be real cute

Do you think they’re wiser than in the past

How long do you think it’s gonna last

I don’t have to prove to you adults can be kidding too

Boys and girls I love you dearly

But I hate to have you near me

Boys and girls – ahh

Boys and girls – ahh

Boys and girls – ahh

Boys and girls stay home today

Think they’re more mature that way

Secret friends can soon be found

Indiscretions underground

Maybe growing up can seem more graceful

If they make their style become more tasteful

With your looks you could go far

But better watch the calendar-iahhh

[The Sound Of A Church Wedding]

Boys and girls I love you dearly

But I hate to have you near me

Boys and girls – ahh

Boys and girls – ahh

Boys and girls – ahh

Boys and girls I love you dearly

But I hate to have you near me

Boys and girls I love you dearly

But I hate to have you near me

Boys and girls – ahh

Boys and girls – ahh

Boys and girls – ahh

The Human League I Love You Too Much

We talked and talked and talked and talked for hours

An ocean or two couldn’t keep me away from you

We spoke about the time and place of our first meeting

Without a word I know you knew that I cared about you

I love you too much

I love you too much

I love you too much

I love you too much

Been one too many lonely nights without you

On one too many trains and boats and planes

I spent a thousand nights alone before I met you

And I’ll spend many more until we meet again

I love you too much

I love you too much

I love you too much

I love you too much

A heart, a mind

I’m appealing

The Human League Tell Me When

Tell me when

Will I?

Tell me when

Will I?

Tell me when

Will I see you again?

Tell me when

Kelly took a lifetime

Searching for the bottom line

I wasn’t into searching

‘Cause I was doing fine

I wasn’t into fighting, chasing

Sweating, slaving, fretting, racing

Any waste of effort

Isn’t part of my design

Billy was an inspiration

Positive and kind

Until he let confusion

Overcome his youthful mind

Common sense dictated

I could never be so blind

And then

Then I see you

Tell me when

Will I see you again?

Tell me when

Will I see you again?

Tell me when

Will I see you again?

Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

Happenstance an episode unplanned

Alone in time

Coincidence, the second chance

Re-sounding like a rhyme

How paths may cross against the odds

To wreck the plans you made

Among the crowd a face that smiles

To melt your masquerade

If only I could see you

Says the stranger deep inside

And lets you know that when you were

So sure you really lied

If only I could see you

Says the voice within your brain

And quietly, insistently

It says it once again

And then, I really need to know

Tell me when

Will I see you again?

Tell me when

Will I see you again?

Tell me when

Will I see you again?

Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

Tell me when

Tell me when

It wouldn’t seem so lonely

If only I could see you

Baby, you can be free

If only I could see you

You’ll never have to doubt me

If only I could see you

Baby, you could free me

If only I could see you

If only I could see you

Tell me when

Tell me when

Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

Tell me when

Will I see you again?

Will I see you again?

Will I see you again?

Will I see you again?

Then

I really need to know

If only if only if only I could see you

If only I could see you

If only if only if only I could see you

Will I see you again?

If only if only if only I could see you

Will I see you again?

Will I see you again?

If only if only if only I could see you

Will I see you again?

Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

If only if only if only I could see you

Tell me when

Will I see you again?

Tell me when

Will I see you again?

If only if only if only I could see you

Tell me when

Will I see you again?

If only if only if only I could see you

If only if only if only I could see you

If only if only if only I could see you

The Human League One Man In My Heart

When you ask me do I mean it?

You have to know

You are the only one

You ask me if it is forever

How can I show?

There’s no comparison

Beyond your doubt

Beyond devout

Beyond the stars tonight

One man in my heart

One man in my head

Oo la la la oo la la la

One man in my home

One man in my bed

Oo la la la oo la la la

My faith is stronger than existence

Longer than time

More fiery than the sun

Within a universe exploding

Though we are mist

Among oblivion

Or should I lie?

So you can cry

In your sleep tonight

Your clumsy grace

I love your face

And when we meet

Oo oo oo la la la

Your kiss so sweet

The things we choose

The things we choose

The life we use

The life we use

The things you say

All the things you say

The need to stay

And the need to stay

One man in my heart

One man in my head

Oo la la la oo la la la

One man in my heart

One man in my home

One man in my bed

Oo la la la oo la la la

I’ve got one man one man

One man in my…
