Thank you Nouvelle Vague - you just made me remember a song I used to really, really love that I had completely forgotten about. Available videoless on youtube here

In a Manner of Speaking

In a manner of speaking
I just want to say
That I could never forget the way
You told me everything
By saying nothing
In a manner of speaking
I don't understand
How love in silence becomes reprimand
But the way I feel about you
Is beyond words

Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me nothing
Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me everything

In a manner of speaking
Semantics won't do
In this life that we live
We only make do
And the way that we feel
Might have to be sacrificed

So in a manner of speaking
I just want to say
That like you I should find a way
To tell you everything
By saying nothing


What a truly lovely song. It just took me right back to hanging round with my similarly depeche mode obsessed friend lizzy and the summer before I came to uni, nearly 19 years ago. :O I know it was a cover when Martin Gore did it too but hey, I really must buy his Counterfeit ep right now.
*goes to see if she can find the tuxedomoon original* (not likely...)
EDIT - took me ages to find and download an mp3 copy (gawd bless you soulseek! you're the bestest!) and then I instantly found it on you-tube here whilst looking for the martin gore version - it's also very sweet and this one actually has a video :)
