THE HUMAN LEAGUE - LYRICS

 

SOUNDTRACK TO A GENERATION

(Oakey/Sutton)

The smell of trees

Can only be that way

On a sunny day
Floating through the open window

To the cool inside
Where we lay side by side

How can anything we feel

Ever mean so much

As a summer love?

How can anything we  need

Ever get in touch

With the meaning of
A whole life waiting?

Wishing suddenly

That it's going to be the real thing

Or separating

Try your luck again

It's just part of the adventure
Holy Cow

You do it to me now

The Soundtrack to a Generation

Oh, Wow

You're getting to me now

The Soundtrack to a Generation

Another tune

Before the light has gone

And we'll be on our way

The sounds and smells

Will always linger on
They're in my heart today
We feel so lucky then

The world's a massive place

But we run into each other

Just one small happening

An accident of fate

Or the work of co-conspirators?

But if we knew
What could it do

To help us now?
Holy Cow

You do it to me now

The Soundtrack to a Generation

Anyhow

Just give it to me now

The Soundtrack to a Generation

Oh Wow

You really got me now

The Soundtrack to a Generation

Holy Cow

You're getting to me now

The Soundtrack to a Generation
Years have gone on in between

But all I knew at seventeen

Is all I know now now

Through times of joy and suffering

The music flavours everything

That's all I know now
Holy Cow

You do it to me now

The Soundtrack to a Generation

Oh Wow

You really got me now

The Soundtrack to a Generation

Anyhow just give it to me  now

The Soundtrack to a Generation
Just give it

You're getting

You do it you really got me now
The Soundtrack to a Generation

Oh Wow

Just give it
You're getting

You do it
You really got me now

The Soundtrack to a Generation
Oh Wow

You really got me now

The Soundtrack to a Generation
