24 Hours Lyrics

Joy Division – 24 Hours Lyrics

from album: The Peel Sessions (1990)
So this is permanence, love's shattered pride
What once was innocence turned on it's side
A cloud hangs over me, marks every move
Deep in the memory of what once was love

Oh, how I realized I wanted time
Put into perspective, tried so hard to find
Just for one moment I thought I'd got my way
Destiny unfolded, watched it slip away

Excessive flash points beyond all reach
Solitary demands for all I'd like to keep
Let's take a ride out, see what we can find
Valueless collection of hopes and past desires

I never realized the lengths I'd have to go
All the darkest corners of a sense I didn't know
Just for one moment, hearing someone call
Looked beyond the day in hand, there's nothing there at all

Now that I've realized how it's all gone wrong
Got to find some therapy, treatment takes too long
Deep in the heart of where sympathy held sway
Got to find my destiny before it gets too late
