bauhaus


bauhaus is our favorite club in Lima.
It's the only place in Lima where you won't have to put up with whatever crappy "party" music is in vogue at the time. If you get happy with dark, depressing and beautiful tunes from The Cure, Depeche Mode, The Smiths and the like, this is your place.
 

Shoudn't there be goth people in there?. Are there no goths in Lima? Or they're not as flamboyand as in other parts of the world. Or is it because  bauhaus is not goth, but just a little dark? ("it all makes sense, when you're near")

Anyhow, If you happened to receive "Bauhaus - Compilación" (with that beautiful and minimalist cover) in July 2001, well, you can find the lyrics to all of the songs below.


 


Nowehere Girl (B-movie)

Nowhere girl you're living in a dream,
Nowhere girl you stay behind the scenes.
Nowhere girl you never go outside,
Nowhere girl 'cause you prefer to hide.

Every day, every night
In that all old familiar light
 You hang up when I call you at home.
And I try to get through
And I try to talk to you
But there's something stopping me from getting through.

Nowhere girl what you had you need,
Nowhere girl all functional and neat.
Nowhere girl in self-imposed exile,
Nowhere girl a martyr-like denial.

Every day, every night
In that all old familiar light
You hang up when I call you at home.
And I try to get through
And I try to talk to you
But there's something stopping me from getting through.

Nowhere girl you're living in a dream,
Nowhere girl you stay behind the scenes.
Nowhere from getting through.


How soon is now? (The Smiths)

I am the son
And the heir
Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
Of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way ?
I am Human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

I am the son
And the heir
Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
Oh, of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way ?
I am Human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

There's a club, if you'd like to go
You could meet somebody who really loves you
So you go, and you stand on your own
And you leave on your own
And you go home, and you cry
And you want to die

When you say it's gonna happen "now"
Well, when exactly do you mean ?
See I've already waited too long
And all my hope is gone

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way ?
I am Human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does


Always The Sun (The Stranglers)

How many times have you woken up and prayed for the rain?
How many times have you seen the papers apportion the blame?
Who gets to say, who gets the work and who gets to play?
I was always told at school, everybody should get the same

How many times have you been told, if you don't ask, you don't get?
How many liars have taken your money, your mother said you shouldn't bet?
Who has the fun, is it always the man with a gun?
Someone must have told him, if you work too hard you can sweat

There's always the sun (always the sun)
There's always the sun
Always, always (always the sun)

How many times have the weathermen told you stories that made you laugh?
I know it's not unlike the politicians and the leaders
When they do things by half
Who gets the job of pushing the knob?
That sort of responsibility you draw straws for, if you're mad enough

There's always the sun (always the sun)
There's always the sun
Always, always (always the sun)


Reap The Wild Wind (Ultravox)
 

Reap the wild wind
Reap the wild wind
Reap the wild wind

A finger points to show a scene. (Take my hand. Take my hand.)
Another face where mine had been. (Take my hand. Take my hand.)
Another footstep where I once walked. (Take my hand)
Take it all.

Chorus:

You take my hand and give me your friendship.
I'll take my time and send you my slow reply.
Give me an inch and I'll make the best of it.
Take all you want and leave all the rest to die.

Reap the wild wind.

A footprint haunts an empty floor. (Take my hand. Take my hand.)
A fading coat that I once wore. (Take my hand. Take my hand.)
Oh, desolation where I once lived.
I have seen in times gone by.
I have felt a different shadow on the wall,
A stranglehold on a certain feeling.

(Chorus)

Reap the wild wind. (Repeat 2 times)

(Chorus)

Reap the wild wind.


This Is The Day (The The)

Well... you didn't wake up this morning
Because you didn't go to bed.
You were watching the whites of your eyes turn red!

The calendar, on your wall, is ticking the days off.
The calendar on your wall is ticking the days off.

You've been reading some old letters
You smile and think how much you've changed.
All the money in the world
Couldn't buy back those days.

You pull back the curtains, and the sun burns into your eyes,
You watch a plane flying across a clear blue sky.

This is the day your life will surely change.
This is the day when things fall into place

You could've done anything if you'd wanted
And all your friends and family think that you're lucky.
But the side of you they'll never see
Is when you're left alone with the memories
that hold your life together like glue

ou pull back the curtains, and the sun burns into your eyes,
You watch a plane flying across a clear blue sky.

This is the day your life will surely change.
This is the day when things fall into place

This is the day your life will surely change.
This is the day y
our life will surely change.
This is the day your life will surely change.
This is the day your life will surely change....


Love My Way (Psychedelic Furs)

There's an army
on the dancefloor
it's a fashion
with a gun my love
in a room
without a door
a kiss is not enough

in
love my way
it's a new road
I follow where
my mind goes

they'd put us
on a railroad
they'd dearly
make us pay
for laughing
in their faces
and making it our way
there's emptiness
behind their eyes
there's dust
in all their hearts
they just want to
steal us all
and take us all apart

but not in
love my way
it's a new road
I follow where
my mind goes

swallow all your tears my love
put on your new face
you can never win or lose
if you don't run the race


Love Will Tear Us Apart (Joy Division)

When the routine bites hard
and ambitions are low
And the resentment rides high
but emotions won't grow
And we're changing our ways,
taking different roads
Then love, love will tear us apart again

Why is the bedroom so cold
Turned away on your side?
Is my timing that flawed,
our respect run so dry?
Yet there's still this appeal
That we've kept through our lives
Love, love will tear us apart again

Do you cry out in your sleep
All my failings expose?
Get a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold
Is it something so good
Just can't function no more?
When love, love will tear us apart again


Planet Earth (Duran Duran)

Only came outside to watch night fall with the rain
I heard you making patterns rhyme like
Some new romantic looking for the TV sound
I'll see you're right some other time love

Look now look all around there's no sign of life
Voices another sound can you hear me now this is planet earth
You're looking at planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is planet earth

My head is stuck on something precious let me know
If you're coming down to land is there
Anybody out there trying to get through
My eyes so cloudy I can't see you

Look now look all around there's no sign of life
Voices another sound can you hear me now this is planet earth
You're looking at planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is planet earth

Look now look all around there's no sign of life
Voices another sound can you hear me now this is planet earth
You're looking at planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop calling planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop looking at planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop this is planet earth
 


So in love  (OMD)

Talk to me, don't lie to me
Save your breath
Don't look at me, don't smile at me
Just close your eyes
I was so impressed by you
I was running blind
I would fall for every trick
Every twist of mind

Heaven is cold
Without any soul
It's hard to believe
I was so in love with you

Don't say your prayers, don't build your hopes
Just walk away
Don't phone me up, dont call around
Don't waste your time
You were so in awe of me
You were so divine
You would do just anything
To still be mine

Heaven is cold
Without any soul
It's hard to believe
I was so in love with you

All the things you said to me
I was so upset
You were always talking talking
God I did my best

Heaven is cold
Without any soul
It's hard to believe
I was so in love with you
 


Strangelove (Depeche Mode)

There'll be times
When my crimes
Will seem almost unforgivable
I give in to sin
Because you have to make this life liveable
But when you think I've had enough
From your sea of love
I'll take more than another riverfull
And I'll make it all worthwhile
I'll make your heart smile

Strangelove
Strange highs and strange lows
Strangelove
That's how my love goes
Strangelove
Will you give it to me
Will you take the pain
I will give to you
Again and again
And will you return it

There'll be days
When I'll stray
I may appear to be
Constantly out of reach
I give in to sin
Because I like to practise what I preach
I'm not trying to say
I'll have it all my way
I'm always willing to learn
When you've got something to teach
And I'll make it all worthwhile
I'll make your heart smile

Pain will you return it
I'll say it again -- pain
Pain will you return it
I won't say it again

I give in
Again and again
I give in
Will you give it to me
I give in
I'll say it again
I give in

I give in
Again and again
I give in
That's how my love goes
I give in
I'll say it again
I give in


Matador (X-mal Deustchland)

Oh was fur ein fest
Take the red carnation
Cariño
Place it in your hair
La-la-la-la-run to the arena
Give it to your matador

Matador....
Matador....
Matador....

Oh was fur ein fest
Spectacular - and in the avenidas
They celebrate the game
La-la-la-la-loud about devotion or death
Matador

Matador....
Matador....
Matador....

Your grace and your pose
Knows only one target
Legend and masquerade
For ever more
Gets wilder and wilder
Excited
Banderillas
Coloured knives are flashing
For the fight!

Oh celebrate
Take the red carnation
Cariño
And throw it in the sand
La-la-la-launisch ist das gluck!

Matador....
Matador....
Matador...


Imagination (Xymox)

I have come to indecision
Someone is pushing me
All the cities, subways, rivers
No direction left for me
I have lost my way home early
I don't care 'cause
I won't stay there
All
I hear is this silent whisper
Will you be here again

Imagination takes the shadows away
Everyday
I've been without you
Imagination keeps the shadows away
Everday
I stay without you
Too many times, without you
 
I have seen your eyes in purple
I have seen your eyes in blue
All the flowers, tears and faces

All the days I spent with you
Again and again
I've been escaping
I've been lost in the dark i fear

Can you hear this silent whisper
Will you be here again
Imagination takes the shadows away

Everyday I've been without you
Imagination keeps the shadows away
Everday
I stay without you
Too many times, without you

Choose and change you say
How can you let this run away
See the storms through your broken window
See the beauty of the falling rain
Everyday
I've been without you
Everyday shadow follows me
Can't you see you left your traces
In too many faces

Imagination takes the shadows away
Everyday
I've been without you
Imagination keeps the shadows away
Everday
I stay without you
Too many times, without you


For Love (Lush)

Pretty little girl, she shines
Knowing she is young, she smiles
Happy just to be a prize
Happy just to see his smile

Silly little girl, she tries
Thinking she is good, and wise
Doesn't recognise the lies
Pouring from her lips, she sighs:

This is so real,
It's what I feel,
I look in your eyes and lose myself

Silly little girl denies
Every understanding why
Her face is full of sad surprise
Every time she hears him cry:

What do you feel
When you're with me?
I look in your eyes and see myself

But there's no connection,
Just his own reflection
Isn't this the way you wanted me?
(what do you mean?)
In love with you
(what do I feel?)
Do anything
(what do you mean?)
For you

She looked in his eyes to lose herself

And when it falls apart, she cries
Doesn't think to look inside
She just covers up her eyes
Doesn't see her own disguise

And though she feels this sorrow,
It will fade tomorrow
She'll pretend that this was really love
(what do you mean?)
She'll make their fall
(what did I feel?)
Seem beautiful
(what do you mean?)
She won't remember this at all
(what do you mean?)
She won't recall
(what did I feel?)
The truth at all
(what do you mean?)
She wants to fall
(what did I feel?)
Again
(what do you mean?)


Babies (Pulp)

Well it happened years ago
when you lived on Stanhope Road.
We listened to your sister
when she came home from school
'cos she was two years older
and she had boys in her room.
We listened outside and  heard her. Alright.

Well that was alright for a while
but soon I wanted more.
I want to see as well as hear and so I
I hid inside her wardrobe.
And she came round four and she was with some kid called David from
the garage up the road I listened outside I heard her. Alright.

Oh I want to take you home.
I want to give you children.
You might be my girlfriend, yeah.

When I saw you next day
I really couldn't tell
'cos you might go and tell your mother.
And so you went with Neve
and Neve was coming on and I thought I heard you laughing
when his Mum and Dad were gone. I listened outside, I heard you. Alright.

Oh I want to take you home.
I want to give you children.
You might be my girlfriend, yeah.


Well I guess it couldn't last too long.
I came home one day and all her things were gone, I fell asleep inside.
I never heard her come.
And then she opened up her wardrobe and I had to get it on, yeah
Oh, listen we were on the bed when you came home,
I heard you stop outside the door.
I know you won't believe it's true,
I only went with her 'cos she looks like you.

Oh I want to take you home.
I want to give you children.
You might be my girlfriend, yeah.
yeah, yeah, yeah

Complejo de Amor (Artefakto) - Mexico

Es un error cuando piensas que la lluvia te da calor
y tú sabes que no
sabes muy bien que la noche es oscura
y tu ves el sol puedes ser el complejo de amor

Puede ser peor
cuando piensas que la vida
hoy es de dos sabiendo que no
sigues así entre nubes y gaviotas
vuelve en ti y no sigas a tu corazón
y no sigas a tu corazón
y no sigas a tu corazón
y no sigas a tu corazón

sientes amor solamente es el complejo
te hace vivir un poco en sueños
tienes que ver que es como una droga
y pedirás más, yo lo se
día tras día
se convierte en obsesivo
ya no sabrás lo que es la razón
sigues así entre nubes y entre sueños
vuelve en tí
y no sigas a tu corazón
y no sigas a tu corazón
y no sigas a tu corazón
y no sigas a tu corazón
y no sigas a tu corazón
