Spandau Ballet – True lyrics

So true funny how it seems
Always in time, but never in line for dreams.
Head over heels when toe to toe.
This is the sound of my soul,
This is the sound

I bought a ticket to the world,
But now I've come back again
Why do I find it hard to write the next line?
Oh I want the truth to be said

Huh huh huh hu-uh huh
I know this much is true
Huh huh huh hu-uh huh
I know this much is true.

With a thrill in my head and a pill on my tongue
Dissolve the nerves that have just begun
Listening to Marvin (all night long)
This is the sound of my soul,
This is the sound...

Always slipping from my hands,
Sands a time of it's own
Take your seaside arms and write the next line
Oh I want the truth to be known

Huh huh huh hu-uh huh
I know this much is true
Huh huh huh hu-uh huh
I know this much is true

I bought a ticket to the world,
But now I've come back again
Why do I find it hard to write the next line?
Oh I want the truth to be said

Huh huh huh hu-uh huh
I know this much is true
Huh huh huh hu-uh huh
I know this much is true

This much is true

I know, I know, I know this much is true

    "take your seats and I'll write the next line" should read.
    "take your seaside arms and write the next line" It's a reference to a passage in Nabokof's Lolita where he describes her as having 'seaside limbs and ardent tongue' A girl he fancied loaned him the book and he put it in the song so she'd know it was about her. She didn't have a clue. Too vague Gary, perhaps you should have just told her.

    True isn't about anything. It's just a mixmash of words to a great tune. They found the tune first and figured they would pull a fast one on the unsuspecting listeners, knowing they would forever be wondering wtf it's about, while all the time they're laughing their asses off. No matter though. It's the second track on the playlist I listen to every night when I go to bed. The first one is captain of her heart and the third one is your song.

    First verse people who are out of sync with each other unless they are in bed.
    2nd verse I take drugs to numb myself but I remember our turbulent relationship and I listen to marvin gaye (?) while I'm on the road looking for inspiration.
    I bought a ticket to the world. I left but and you use the distance to put a min on the relationship so its time I tell my side of the story of why we are not together.

    This is a song which uses poetic verses in place of actual feelings. It's about a lover who knows thier in love with someone but doesn't want to act on it because they're either afraid of being rejected or that their feelings are unrequited, or they don't know how to say it. So they're thinking to themselves they wish they could see the future and know the outcome if they're to act on their feelings. 'with a thrill in my hand and a pill on my tongue. '- they have the nerve to say it but don't know how to say it, but wants the truth to be known. 'head over heals when toe to toe'-this is the effect of being close to the person with whom they're in love.

    It's about the dark dichotomy of a dream. The realization of a dream is also the death of a dream. This person has found the perfect soul mate, but just has to see if there is someone or something else out there that is better. There is not. But he/she looks anyway to no avail only to wind up right back where they started. This is human situation and no drug can cure it. We are all doomed to want more even if we have more than we could ever want.
