Cuts You Up
Peter Murphy Lyrics


I find you in the morning
After dreams of distant signs
You pour yourself over me
Like the sun through the blinds

You lift me up
And get me out
Keep me walking
But never shout

Hold the secret close
I hear you say

You know the way
It throws about
It takes you in
And spits you out

It spits you out
When you desire
To conquer it
To feel you're higher

To follow it
You must be clean
With mistakes
That you do mean

Move the heart
Switch the pace
Look for what seems out of place

On and on it goes
Calling like a distant wind
Through the zero hour we'll walk
We'll cut the thick and break the thin
No sound to break no moment clear
When all the doubts are crystal clear
Crashing hard into the secret wind

You know the way
It twists and turns
Changing color
Spinning yarns

You know the way
It leaves you dry
It cuts you up
And takes you high

You know the way
It's painted gold
Is it honey
Is it gold

You know the way
It throws about
It takes you in
And spits you out

Oh, cuts you up
Oh, cuts you up
Oh, cuts you up
Oh, la la la la la la la la

You know the way
It throws about
It takes you in
And spits you out

It spits you out
When you desire
To conquer it
To feel you're higher

To follow it
You must be clean
With mistakes
That you do mean

Move the heart
Switch the pace
Look for what
Seems out of place

Oh, cuts you up
Oh, cuts you up

It's o.k.
It goes this way
The line is thin
It twists away

Cuts you up
And spits you out
Keeps you walking
But never shout

Oh
Oh

Saw him in concert...a long time ago....

When...the concert started...the lights went out and it became so dark I couldn't even see my hand in front of my face....THEN a beam of light to the stage....

THAT ONLY light in the pitch black arena was a beam of focused light that focused ONLY on his eyes....thats ALL you could see....and his eyes were closed.

a moment later....his eyes OPENED WIDE ...

it was THEN I knew I was in the right place at the right time...because Cuts You Up...began.

I find you in the morning... after dreams of distant signs
You pour yourself over me like the sun through the blinds
You lift me up and get me out
Keep me walking but never shout
"Hold the secret close", I hear you say

You know the way it twists and turns
Changing colour, spinning yarns
You know the way it leaves you dry
It cuts you up, and takes you high
You know the way it's painted gold
Is it honey? Is it gold?
You know the way it throws about.
It takes you in and spits you out

Cuts you up... Cuts you up... Cuts you up

On and on it goes, calling like a distant wind
Through the zero hour we'll walk...
Will cut the thick and break the thin
No sound to break, no moment clear
When all the doubts are crystal clear
Crashing hard into the secret wind

You know the way it throws about.
It takes you in and spits you out
It spits you out when you desire
To conquer it, to feel you're higher
To follow it you must be clean,
With mistakes that you do mean
Move the heart, switch the pace
Look for what seems out of place

Cuts you up... Cuts you up

It's okay... it goes this way
The line it twists, it twists away
Cuts you up, and spits you out
Keeps you walking, but never shout...

I miss 80s singers who sang in a dead serious tone in the woods or the moon light and didn’t need to explain a damn thing to anyone!

TooHotToHandleTooCoolToMelt

Every person who likes this song loves it.

George Grund

And didn’t need to explain a damn thing to anyone! Ditto

I miss singers who could sing, who could make a note, who could carry a tune, who could engage the audience...you know, musicians.
