Notes

Netzeitung.de asked Martin Gore and Andy Fletcher about this song (translated from German):

Martin: "You really don't wanna know who Lilian is." [laughs]

Andy: "I do not know either. But nevertheless the song is great for waking up at eight in the morning while heating up a plate of pasta."

Lyrics


Lilian

Oh Lilian

Look what you've done

You've stripped my heart

Ripped it apart

In the name of fun


Oh Lilian

I'm a poor man's son

And precious jewels

Weren't found in schools

Where I came from


Pain and misery

Always hit the spot

Knowing you can't lose

What you haven't got


Oh Lilian

I should have run

I should have known

Each dress you own

Is a loaded gun


Oh Lilian


Oh Lilian

I need protection

I hear your voice

And any choice

I had is gone


Oh Lilian

Once I'd begun

I couldn't stop

Till every drop

Of blood was sung

Pain and misery

Always hit the spot

Knowing you can't lose

What you haven't got


Oh Lilian

Look what you've done

You've stripped my heart

Ripped it apart

In the name of fun


Oh Lilian
