Concert version

I remember nothing

We were strangers
We were strangers for way too long
Violent, violent, were strangers
Get weak all the time
We just pass the time
Me in my own world
Yeah, you there beside
The gaps are enormous
We stare from each side
We were strangers for way too long

Violent, more violent his hand cracks the chair
Moves on reaction, then slumps in despair
Trapped in a cage and surrendered too soon
Me in my own world, the one that you knew
For way too long
We were strangers for way too long



Studio version



Line-up: Ian Curtis | Peter Hook | Stephen Morris | Bernard Sumner
Ian Curtis played the guitar, and Bernard Sumner the keyboard
