Star by Erasure

Star
We go waiting for the stars
To come showering down
From Moscow to Mars
Universe falling down

You got to look real hard
There's a fiery star
Hidden out there somewhere
Not the satellite of love
But a laser
Shooting out it's shiny tongue there

God is love, God is war
TV-preacher tell me more
Load redeem me, am I pure?
As pure as pure as heaven
Sent you money sent you flowers
Could worship you for hours
In whose hands are we anyway?

Go waiting for the stars
To come showering down
From Moscow to Mars
Universe falling down

You got to look real hard
Is it in your heart?
Yeah it's in there somewhere
The power wrapped in your palm
Show it to me
Hit them with your wrath and thunder

What's your pleasure?
Tell it to me
How did you know?
Show your beauty
In you somewhere, somewhere in me
Pure as pure as heaven
Sent you money sent you flowers
Could worship you for hours
In whose hands are we anyway?
Yeeha

Rolling along through a rose colored glow
The city looks pretty in pink
Armageddon is here!

Did you ever have a lover
Leave you for another
To take your love and kisses for granted?
Never to discover
War is not the answer
Leave you only disenchanted

God is love, God is war
TV-preacher tell me more
Father help me am I pure?
As pure as pure as heaven
Sent you money sent you flowers
Could worship you for hours
In whose hands are we anyway?

Go waiting for the stars
To come showering down
From Moscow to Mars
Universe falling down

Go waiting for the stars
To come showering down
From Moscow to Mars
Universe falling down

Go waiting for the stars
To come showering down
From Moscow to Mars
Universe falling down

THIS SONG CAME OUT MY FRESHMAN YEAR OF COLLAGE. I USED TO LISTEN TO IT ALL THE TIME. I HAD TOTALLY FOGOTTEN ITS EXISTANCE

Another song inspired by unrequited love. Man. This type of music sends me back to the glory days of youth. It's amazing that it came out in 1993 and the video looks like something made on public access or in a teenagers garage. Yet that was considered decent production value back then. And it wasn't that long ago. Or maybe it was...
Chris you are the only person in the world who went to COLLAGE. What is collage? Do you study how to assemble photos together on a large posterboard and rubber cement them on in a fun way? Sounds about as useful as a theatre degree

My freshman year was 1990. And excuse me college. I'm glad I have a mental powerhouse like you for a friend. And by the way yes... I have had a lover leave me for another thank you very much.

Dude. In case you forgot after you graduated high school you went on a mission for two years before you went to COLLAGE. You graduated in 1990. So two years on your brainwashing excursion puts it at 1992. But you enrolled in the spring so that makes it 1993.
And it is funny that you were dumped for another. It was funny every time it happened.

I went to my brain washing in 1991. Before that I went to school at unc. And yes dumbing is funny.

Aaron Vattano said...

No. Actually no

Wow, I completely forgot about this song

Dave dug Erasure back in the day and played it a lot in his jeep

He loved that jeep

I liked 'Oh L'Amour' and 'A Little Respect'

You two are funny and make me chuckle

However, dumping is like Bad Leroy Brown

- in that it is meaner than a junkyard dog
