digital tenderness lyrics – adam & the ants

why does this feeling of togetherness
always scare me away?
why do the feelings that i have for you
have to become a word?

don’t say you “love” me -oh no
don’t ask that from me -no no no

that alphabet you call love
that alphabet you call love
that alphabet you call love
is just a digital tenderness
tenderness

here is the start for so many broken people
all with a hard luck story and a sad sad tale

don’t say you love me -oh no
don’t ask that from me -no no no

that alphabet you call love
that alphabet you call love
that alphabet you call love
is just a digital tenderness
tenderness

sometimes
i need to be by myself
i need to be by your side
i need…
sometimes
i need the company of art
i need the company of friends
i need you

and my heart is stronger
than a four-letter-long word

searching the eyes of so many lonely people
whose cowardice proved much too strong for vice

don’t say you “love” me -oh no
don’t ask that from me -no no no

that alphabet you call “love”
that alphabet you call “love”
that alphabet you call “love”
that alphabet you call “love”
that alphabet you call “love”
that alphabet you call “love”
