THE HUMAN LEAGUE - LYRICS

 

MARIANNE

(Marsh/Oakey/Ware)

 

ALBUM VERSION:

I take one look at you
It leaves me breathless
I see your dreams come true
You're not so restless
Or light, or bright
Marianne
One day I might not care
What happened to me
Your lack of sympathy fails to disturb me
I've got a life of my own
I remember the day I thought we couldn't lose
Running round the garden in your mother's shoes
Playing with your sisters
I didn't see you were a grown up girl
And bringing me tea
But is it life in a grown up world
On a cold autumn day
Is it life, someone's wife
When the car had broken down
The best of my girls
I didn't see you were a grown up girl
Oh how I hate the celebration
But you give it all away leaving me on my own
But is it life in a grown up world
I can't wait for the end of the celebration
Is it life, someone's wife
Add it up, all that's left is a space in a life
That goes on as before
One day I might not care
What happens to me
Your lack of sympathy fails to disturb me
I've got a life of my own
Add it up, all that's left is a space in a life
That goes on as before
Marianne
Add it up, all that's left is a space in a life
That goes on as before
Marianne
Add it up, All that's left is a space in a life
That goes on as before
Marianne
Add it up, all that's left is a space in a life
At the end of the world
Marianne

 

DEMO LYRICS:

Living on a bombsite

Guarding your door in a land where there's no property

After all my other girls let me down

I'd have thought you would care about me

Do you think your mother brought you up for this?

Baby

I know it wasn't easy with your sisters at home

And I thought you were better than this

Is it just a reaction against being so good-looking?

A popular and eligible Miss

Whatever you think, I'm still your father

Won't you kiss me?

I thought we couldn't lose

Running 'round the garden in your mother's shoes

Playing with your sisters

And bringing me tea

On a cold Autumn day

When the car had broken down

The best of my girls

Why'd you give it all away?

Leaving me on my own, alone

One so sad, one so tough

With you back at home, I would have enough

Living on a bombsite

Guarding your door in a land where there's no property

After all my other girls let me down

I'd have thought you would care about me

Do you think your mother brought you up for this?

Baby

I know it wasn't easy with your sisters at home

And I thought you were better than this

Is it just your reaction against being so good-looking?

A popular and eligible Miss

Whatever you think, I'm still your father

Won't you kiss me?

(In all my dreams) I'm still your father

(In all my dreams) I'm still your father

(In all my dreams) I'm still your father

(In all my dreams)
