a new religion
(marr, sumner, bartos)



it’s early but i’m leaving

a new dawn and a new religion


help me and i will try
lend me the hand of life

show me that i can fly
just stand there by my side



how many words are written
you can read but you don’t listen


it’s there in front of you

take a look, it’s quite a view
oh, how could i know?
reaping the seed that can’t be sown

how could i know?
reaping the seed that can’t be sown



it happens all the time
but not when you’re around

why do some people shine
while others search the ground


it’s like walking in the snow
the rain falls then we grow

it’s happening right now
it’s got to be somehow



when you’re around (happening right now)

when you’re around (happening right now)



hello stranger, you’re the reason

that i live and that i keep on breathing


sing me a lullaby
don’t let this baby cry
i’m lost inside my mind
there ’til the end of time



fresh water pure will clean me
renew the force within me


just something i must do
i would leave the world to you

i’m lost inside my mind
there ’til the end of time



it happens all the time
but not when you’re around

why do some people shine
while others search the ground


it’s like walking in the snow
the rain falls then we grow

it’s happening right now
it’s got to be somehow



it happens all the time
but not when you’re around

why do some people shine
while others search the ground


it’s like walking in the snow
the rain falls then we grow

it’s happening right now
it’s got to be somehow



when you’re around (happening right now)

when you’re around (happening right now)

when you’re around (happening right now)

when you’re around (happening right now)



when you’re around (happening right now)

when you’re around (happening right now)

when you’re around (happening right now)

comment
denise johnson adds a touch of class to the languid yet crisp beat of this excellent b-side. in the late show broadcast of 1995 marr and sumner were seen working on an early version of this track, which featured an iridescent guitar part that was unfortunately later rejected. a number of their best co-writes with karl bartos were released as flip-sides — imitation of life, i feel alright, and this one. hidden away on those nine unassuming singles is the lost electronic album, and it’s almost as good as the first lp.
