Back to Love Is Lost lyrics

Love Is Lost (Hello Steve Reich Mix by James Murphy for the DFA) (Audio)

This is the darkest hour, you're 22
The voice of youth, the hour of dread
The darkest hour, and your voice is new
Love is lost, lost is love

Your country's new, your friends are new
Your house, and even your eyes are new
Your maid is new, and your accent, too
But your fear is as old as the world

[Chorus]
Say goodbye to the thrills of life
Where love was good, no love was bad
Wave goodbye to the life without pain
Say hello, "You're a beautiful girl...."

Say hello to the created men
Tell them your secrets they are like the grave
Oh what you have done, oh what you have done
Love is lost, lost is love

You know so much, it's making me cry
You refuse to talk, but you think like mad
You've cut out your soul and the face of thought
Oh what have you done, oh what have you done
Oh what have you done, oh what have you done
