The Heartbreakers

(Which group Hell left before the songs could be officially recorded with them.)

1975



Love Comes in Spurts
(music R. Hell, Voidoids version Sire/Warners: Blank Generation cd 9 26137-2, 1990)
[Heartbreakers version on (French) Fan Club : Heartbreakers Live at Mothers cd FC 95 CD, 1991]



I was a child
who wanted love that was wild
though tight as slow motion
but crazed with devotion

insane with devotion
a whole other notion
I was fourteen and a half
and it wasn't no laugh

Love comes in spurts (oh no it hurts)
Love comes in spurts (it hurts)
Love comes in spurts (oh no, cuz)
Love comes in spurts (it always hurts)

I just can't get wise
to those tragical lies
though I now know the facts
they still cut like an axe

cuz love comes in spurts
in dangerous flirts
and it murders your heart
they didn't tell you that part

Love comes in spurts
Love comes in spurts
Love comes in spurts
Love comes in spurts

Love comes in spurts
Love comes in spurts
Love comes in spurts
Love comes in spurts

New Pleasure
[music R. Hell, appears on Sire/Warners: Blank Generation cd, 1990]
[Heartbreakers version on (French) Fan Club : Heartbreakers Live at Mothers cd FC 95 CD, 1991]



Your mind's a wreck but that's fine
It corresponds to mine
We're in a room the door closes
Automatic aut- (hypnosis) -matic automatic auto-

New pleasure, new pleasure
(Whisper in my ear, we go away)
New Pleasure, new pleasure


Too weak for life you have become
You can't get dressed you're too numb
But we assume sublime poses
Deep in true to life (hypnosis) true to life in true to life in

New pleasure, new pleasure
(Whisper in my ear, we go away)
New Pleasure, new pleasure


You're in too deep you can't survive
Or can't be you past twenty-five
A day's a week the monster dozes
Deep in passionate (hypnosis) passionate in passionate in

New pleasure, new pleasure
(Whisper in my ear, we go away)
New Pleasure, new pleasure

You Gotta Lose
(music R. Hell, Voidoids version Ork Records: Blank Generation e.p. vinyl, 1976, o.p.)


I hope I don't seem immodest when I tell you that my, my
mother was a pinhead and my father was a fly.
That's why I love you darlin with a love that's so unique:
Your glistenin wings they complement your head's exquisite peak.

They all died by coin toss.
Love's a form of memory loss.
I can't forget that triple cross...

You gotta lose, you gotta lose


Not too long ago I knew a guy who thought he can't be beat
but he got rabies on his rubies now he can't unlace his feet.
And I for twenty minutes yesterday felt great, felt insensate,
But when you're twenty minutes late your fate is patient and will wait.

They all died by coin toss.
Love's a form of memory loss.
I can't forget that triple cross...

You gotta lose, you gotta lose


I know it's hard for you to face the fact Max Factor failed your face
and that your social life's misshapen cuz you feel so out of place
and that the most magic man you'd meet and ask your soul to keep
still could only love you from a distance one man deep.

You gotta lose, you gotta lose, you gotta lose, you gotta lose, you gotta lose
