Age of Consent Lyrics - New Order



Review The Song (2)


Won't you please let me go
These words lie inside they hurt me so
And I'm not the kind that likes to tell you
Just what I want to do
I'm not the kind that needs to tell you
Just what you want me to

I saw you this morning
I thought that you might like to know
I received your message in full a few days ago
I understood every word that it said
And now that I've actually heard it
You're going to regret

And I'm not the kind that likes to tell you
Just what you want me to
You're not the kind that needs to tell me
About the birds and the bees

Do you find this happens all the time
Crucial point one day becomes a crime
And I'm not the kind that likes to tell you
Just what I want to do
I'm not the kind that needs to tell you

I've lost you (x5)
I've lost you (x5)

my favorite song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/3/2008

I've always thought that whatever they're referring to as better left unsaid had to do with sex because of the title of the song - and then this is causing trouble for the relationship. Sex always complicates things, thats why I love this song so much.

Its almost a different genre then most other new order songs. This is sort of classic rock compared to their usual retro dance stuff. I love all New Order but these are my favorite lyrics.

One of the best NO songs. From the lyrics & title I take it the narator is in a relationship with someone underage or vice versa. They're trying to tell the other person who has broken it off that they'll regret it & that they don't need them but the "i've lost you" shows the person is really hurting.

Love it.
