Lyrics

It was January, 1963
When Johnny came home with a gift for me
He said I bought it for you because I love you
And I bought it for you because it's your birthday, too

It's amazing how mostly every indie band from the 70-90s have the best lyrics a song could ever have.
Epic, classic....N e w Order...can make a sad song....nice to sing along!!! See them live if you ever get the opportunity. . . . G r e a t Band..great songs...
besokster
I'm sure the story has quite a deep and interesting background.. . either way? I've always felt it was a bit emotionally moving, rather than overwhelming . I suppose I enjoy when music sings beyond the mere simple ideas that most songs do, although I enjoy "love" themes as well. This one, despite it's lyrics seemed to transcend those same lyrics and convey a deep and interesting message
very sad,where's the love?
