if you’ve got love
(marr, sumner, bartos)



you are the only one i need

and you mean everything to me

i can’t get you out of my mind

you’ve got the face i want to see



you’re never in when i’m around

when i turn up you turn me down

if you lie to me i believe you

yes i have to, i will leave you



stop if you’ve got love

take all your faith and make it good

bow down, surrender, follow love

and make it yours forever more



why don’t you stop if you’ve got love

don’t lose this grace, it’s just too good

i hope it’s me you’re thinking of

because i feel the need



you never know what’s going on

but you tell me that i am wrong

if it was up to me i would leave you

but it isn’t, i believe you



i would do anything i could

just to make sure you understood

but i wouldn’t ever deceive you

though i’d want to, i could not do



stop if you’ve got love

take all your faith and make it good

bow down, surrender, follow love

and make it yours forever more



why don’t you stop if you’ve got love

don’t lose this grace, it’s just too good

i hope it’s me you’re thinking of

because i feel the need



stop if you’ve got love, if you’ve got love

stop if you’ve got love, if you’ve got love

stop if youve got love, if you’ve got love

stop if you’ve got love, if you’ve got love



stop if you’ve got love

stop if you’ve got love

stop if you’ve got love, if you’ve got love

stop if you’ve got love



stop if you’ve got love

stop if you’ve got love

stop if you’ve got love

stop if you’ve got love

raise the pressure

comment
karl bartos’ influence is more apparent on this album track, which has some very kraftwerkian keyboard sounds; an early version was performed by elektric music as ‘lost’ on the virtual summer tour in 1994. it’s a decent enough pop song, immaculately produced, but it goes on for far too long, and diminishes the impact of raise the pressure as a whole, along with the unnecessary interlude. being a mancunian band, electronic obviously felt the need to release many of their best songs as b-sides, but while most of the singles did well enough, they might have been better advised to include imitation of life or i feel alright in the stead of these two tracks.
