NOTES
Early editions of the UK vinyl release were bundled with a free copy of the ‘Oh L’Amour’ 12″. The album was later re-released as a limited edition double cassette with ‘The Circus’.

The album was released in the USA with a different tracklisting (see above) and features a different mix of ‘Oh L’Amour’.

The ‘Push Me Shove Me (Tacos Mix Edit) is labelled as just ‘Push Me Shove Me’, and on the US release ‘Who Needs Love Like That (Mexican Mix)’ is labelled as ‘Who Needs Love Like That (Love That Mix)’.

The three disc (2CD and DVD) reissue of ‘Wonderland’ was released on July 4th 2011 and was available with a limited edition Erasure Information Service slipcase via the official Erasure shop. A limited run t-shirt, in burgundy or cream, featuring artwork adapted from the original vinyl label was also produced to mark the reissue.

WHO NEEDS LOVE LIKE THAT

Who needs love like that?

There’s something going on, something not quite right
There something strange a-happening to me
There’s someone at the door, I hear voices in my head
It seems things aren’t the way they ought to be

Who needs love like that?
Who needs love like that?

It seemed so clear before I held my point of view
I kept my conversation never changed
And now it’s all gone wrong and words are kinda hard
And nothing else around me looks the same

Who needs love like that?
Who needs love like that?

Love can turn you upside-down then leave you cold
It’s plain to see you’re losing all control

Who needs love like that?
Who needs love like that?

I’d like to understand, like to find out why
I can’t remember all the lines I should say
But then I see your face and nothing really counts
Don’t tell me now this feeling will stay

Who needs love like that?
Who needs love like that?

Love can turn you upside-down then leave you cold
It’s plain to see you’re losin’ all control

Who needs love like that?
Who needs love like that?

Who needs love like that?
Who needs love like that?

Who needs love like that?

REUNION

Oh my love, you’ve been so much on my mind
I’ve been waiting for this day to arrive
It’s been so long, I’ve watched the hours go by
It really doesn’t matter, got you here by my side

I was blind, now baby I see the light
Love is kind, yeah, ’cause you made it all right
Stay with me, so close forever in time
Say what you’re really feeling, say you’ll always be mine

Reunion, together this time
Reunion, forever be mine
Reunion, together this time
Reunion, forever be mine

Would not believe I’d ever see you again
Everyone’s saying you’re a fool in the end
Whispering words, they made me feel so ashamed
They tried so hard to stop me, still I call out your name

I was dreaming in a world of my own
Tears of sorrow, let me cry all alone
What could I do the thousand nights without you?
No more empty heartache, can’t believe that it’s true

Reunion, together this time
Reunion, forever be mine
Reunion, together this time
Reunion, forever be mine

Reunion, together this time
Reunion, forever be mine
Reunion, together this time
Reunion, forever be mine

Feel so fine, yeah, ’cause you’re back with me now
It’s a true love story, knew we’d make it somehow
Goodbye blues, we’re gonna leave you behind
Now we’re here together, you’re just wasting your time

Sunshine calling, must be love in the air
Ain’t that something? We got more than our share
Love returns when love is true
No more sad or parting baby, I got you

Reunion, together this time
Reunion, forever be mine
Reunion, together this time
Reunion, forever be mine

CRY SO EASY

Drawn the line, don’t wanna waste my time on an unresponsive kid like you
Who made the effort? You devil in disguise, you just keep on trying to win affection with your smile

Baby cry so easy, expect me to believe in the love you’re looking for
Say you’d never leave me, but babe I can’t believe in the love you’re looking for

Danger signs opened up the eyes of an unsuspecting fool like me
What about an effort? What about tonight? What’s the use in trying when nothing’s going right?

Baby cry so easy, expect me to believe in the love you’re looking for
Say you’d never leave me, but babe I can’t believe in the love you’re looking for

Baby cry so easy, expect me to believe in the love you’re looking for
Say you’d never leave me, but babe I can’t believe in the love you’re looking for

Can’t you see that you’re turning me into a cold, cold kid like you?
Forget the effort now you’re not mine, no more use in smiling, it’s time to say goodbye

Baby cry so easy, expect me to believe in the love you’re looking for
Say you’d never leave me, but babe I can’t believe in the love you’re looking for

Baby cry so easy, expect me to believe in the love you’re looking for
Say you’d never leave me, but babe I can’t believe in the love you’re looking for

PUSH ME SHOVE ME

Motion always seemed to me the way I ought to go
No one now gets in my way, I won’t let my heartache show
The same situation won’t bring me down no more
I’ll get on without you now, I don’t need your help for sure

Push me, shove me
I don’t call that love me
I call that over

There was once a time when I would fall for all your lies
Now I know the game you played, I see it clearly in your eyes
You can’t cry beside me, I won’t let you in my heart
I can walk out on my own, it’s high time we moved apart

Push me, shove me
I don’t call that love me
Push me, shove me
I call that over

You say talk it out, I say it’s all one big mistake
Cut so deep it’s hard and it’s the chance I have to take
I don’t need to follow, I want to face love on my own
Emotion, oh emotion, from now on that’s how it goes

Push me, shove me
I don’t call that love me
I call that over
Push me, shove me
I don’t call that love me
I call that over

HEAVENLY ACTION

All I want is your love
Gimme some of that action, reaction
Angel made in heaven

SAY WHAT

Say what
Make out
Say what
Make out

There’s a crazy situation keeps my body hot
What’s infatuation? Something you ain’t got
There’s fire inside
A love so bright

Say what
The hell do you think you’ve done?
Drive me higher and higher
Make out
There ain’t nothing going on
Oh you’re such a liar

Without no future what’s the use in keeping tight?
Always wrapped up in yourself, oh you’re alright
Why should I fall?
No love at all

Say what
The hell do you think you’ve done?
Drive me higher and higher
Make out
There ain’t nothing going on
Oh you’re such a liar

Momma said that you’re as good as dead
If you don’t call the shots yourself
Love don’t come easy

Say what
Love, love, love
Love don’t come easy
Make out

Why’d you try to fool me? I see, got no heart
Fool me, try to rule me, tore my head apart
Say lover, move on
See right from wrong

Say what
The hell do you think you’ve done?
Drive me higher and higher
Make out
There ain’t nothing going on
Oh you’re such a liar

Momma said that you’re as good as dead
If don’t call the shots yourself

Say what
The hell do you think you’ve done?
Drive me higher and higher
Make out
There ain’t nothing going on
Oh you’re such a liar

LOVE IS A LOSER

Love me forever, let me know that you’ll never leave me out in the cold
Never leave me alone

I’ll show you devotion, can’t control my emotion, I’ve got love on my side
Hey what a surprise

They say love is just infatuation
I say love is dancing ‘cross the nation

Love so appealing, leaves you rocking and reeling, how did it happen this time?
Got love on my mind

Hold me and kiss me, tell me how much you miss me, how can they keep us apart?
Got love in our hearts

They say we’re just two more crazy lovers
I say all we need is one another

Oh Lord, how they gonna stop us today
My word, see how the passion looks played

Love me forever, let me know that you’ll never leave me out in the cold
Never leave me alone

I’ll show you devotion, can’t control my emotion, I’ve got love on my side
Hey what a surprise

They say love is just infatuation
I say love is dancing ‘cross the nation

Oh Lord, how they gonna stop us today
My word, see how the passion looks played

Dancin’ across the nation
Dancin’ across the nation
Dancin’ across the nation
Dancin’ across the nation

SENSELESS

Go ahead, get captivated
Will you ever give your secrets away?
My mind says it’s gonna drive me senseless
But it’s only tunnel vision, it’s only state of mind

It’s alright
It’s alright to make the move
It’s alright
Get there, stay there
Babe it’s alright
It’s alright to feel the mood
It’s alright
So good, so far
Babe it’s alright

There has to be some be some kind of harmony
To keep the maddening silence away
So hang on and we’ll be moving on
‘Cause it’s only your confusion that’s keeping us behind

It’s alright
It’s alright to make the move
It’s alright
Get there, stay there
Babe it’s alright
It’s alright to feel the mood
It’s alright
So good, so far
Babe it’s alright

It’s alright
It’s alright to make the move
It’s alright
Get there, stay there
Babe it’s alright
It’s alright to feel the mood
It’s alright
So good, so far
Babe it’s alright

Got there, babe better stop there
Inhibition slipping away
Stay there, got a lot that we could share
I found out the secret was only state of mind

It’s alright
It’s alright to make the move
It’s alright
Get there, stay there
Babe it’s alright
It’s alright to feel the mood
It’s alright
So good, so far
Babe it’s alright

It’s alright to make the move
It’s alright
Get there, stay there
Babe it’s alright
It’s alright to feel the mood
It’s alright
So good, so far
Babe it’s alright

MY HEART… SO BLUE

I’ve got a picture, it’s there on the wall
I can’t remember why I keep it at all
The doors are cold and all the windows are grey
I write the book, there’s so much more I should say

Wave goodbye
See my heart, so blue
Wave goodbye
Lost for you

And now it’s over, I write it all down
No one to notice, one less face in the crowd
Our eyes are open when it suits us to see
Dear god in heaven show no mercy to me

Wave goodbye
See my heart, so blue
Wave goodbye
Lost for you

I shed no tears and there’s no reason for shame
A small consolation hides a stone with her name
Just a victim, still the light shines on bright
I’ve got the picture, think I’ll hold it tonight

Wave goodbye
See my heart, so blue
Wave goodbye
Lost for you

OH L’AMOUR

Oh l’amour
Broke my heart and now I’m aching for you
Mon amour
What’s a boy in love supposed to do?

Looking for you,you were looking for me
Always reaching for you, you were too blind to see
Oh love of my heart why leave me alone?
I’m falling apart, no good on my own

Oh l’amour
Broke my heart and now I’m aching for you
Mon amour
What’s a boy in love supposed to do?

Why throw it away? Why walk out on me?
I just live for the day, for the way it should be
There once was a time I had you here by my side
You said I wasn’t your kind, only here for the ride

Oh l’amour
Broke my heart and now I’m aching for you
Mon amour
What’s a boy in love supposed to do?

No emotional ties, you don’t remember my name
I lay down and die, I’m only to blame
Oh love of my heart, it’s up to you now
You tore me apart, I hurt inside-out

Oh l’amour
Broke my heart and now I’m aching for you
Mon amour
What’s a boy in love supposed to do?

MARCH ON DOWN THE LINE

Lover out of my way, I’ll stand up to anything
Move on out this heartbeat, the song is over

A new day, a new way
I’m coming out this time
A new name, let’s play the game
And march on down the line

I’ve got lots to shout about the way I feel inside
Round and round this place like a shotgun fired

A new day, a new way
I’m coming out this time
A new name, let’s play the game
And march on down the line

Ah-ha let’s play the game

A new day, a new way
I’m coming out this time
A new name, let’s play the game
And march on down the line

Now the fight is won, standing ten-foot tall again
God is on our side, dance on up to heaven

A new day, a new way
I’m coming out this time
A new name, let’s play the game
And march on down the line

Ah-ha let’s play the game

A new day, a new way
I’m coming out this time
A new name, let’s play the game
And march on down the line
