Torch

Soft Cell – Torch [Extended Mix]

Featuring Cyndi Ecstasy, who was responsible for introducing
E to the band.
I did want the actual video in which Cyndi Ecstasy is wearing
a bald wig, but none of the videos i found in youtube would
allow me to embed them.
So here’s the extended mix with just the record cover.

I’m lost again
And I’m on the run
Looking for love
In a sad song
With your avenger eyes
And your cat like ways
I can hold you
You’re a fool for me to be cruel
I’m leaning on this bar
Listening to you sing
And your sad song
Rings in my ears
And I start to cry

He’s searching
She’s showing
See him held in a deep deep spell
He knows she’s glowing
I can find within my mind
A way to go
I can look deep into your life and shout
Hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me…

I hear the saxophone
And it tears my soul
And they’re feeling old
Feeling so cold
She is the torch
And she is the theme
She could be a dream
But oh boy, is she real
Try to avoid her eyes
To avoid her words
They will hit you
With all that you feel

He’s searching
She’s showing
See him held in a deep deep spell
He knows she’s glowing
I can find within my mind
A way to go
I can look deep into your life and shout
Hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me…

See her eyes they are bright tonight
See the stars coming out tonight
See the moon looking down tonight
See how they light your way tonight
See my eyes they are bright tonight
See my hands reaching out tonight
Hear my words they are dynamite
See how they light your way tonight

When I first met you
You looked like Billie Holliday
Had that nude backless dress
the one with the sequins and the single white gardenia
I was probably drunk and had no make-up on
Oh, but you had such style
Oh really?
Nice words you sang
It was probably my life’s story
It was mine too
I remember I drank too much and made a fool of myself
You looked OK to me
But when you get like me you know you’re in trouble
I wanted to grab you and kiss you
But I thought you’d hit me
Too right, baby
But those words just kept
Calling
Calling
Calling
Calling

You’re lost again
And you’re on the run
Looking for love
In a sad song
With my avenger eyes
And my cat like ways
I can hold you
You’re a fool for me to be cruel

He’s searching
She’s showing
See him held in a deep deep spell
He knows she’s glowing
I can find within my mind
A way to go
I can look deep into your life and shout
Hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me…

See her eyes they are bright tonight
See the stars coming out tonight
See the moon looking down tonight
See how they light your way tonight
See my eyes they are bright tonight
See my hands reaching out tonight
Hear my words they are dynamite
See how they light your way tonight
