01. Intro

03. The Cover

Scenes from the classic fairytale by brothers Grimm, Pied Piper of Hamelin, with photos taken by Joe Lyons. On the 12" edition the front and back photo is swapped.

The cover above is the Scandinavian edition.

04. The Tracks

Both Don't Go and Winter Kills are identical to the versions from Upstairs At Eric's. The Remix and Re-Remix is available only on the 12" version (again backed by Winter Kills) and the CD-single release from 1996.

01. Don't Go

Came in from the city walked into the door
I turned around when I heard the sound of footsteps on the floor
Love just like addiction now I'm hooked on you
I need some time to get it right
Your love gonna see me through
Can't stop now
Don't you know I ain't never gonna let you go
Don't go
Baby make your mind up give me what you got
Fix me with your lovin' shut the door and turn the lock
Hey go get the doctor, doctor came too late
Another night I feel alright my love for you can't wait
Can't stop now
Don't you know I ain't never gonna let you go
Don't go
Came in from the city walked into the door
I turned around when I heard the sound of footsteps on the floor
Said he was a killer, now I know it's true I'm dead when you walkout the door
Hey babe I'm hooked on you

02. Winter Kills

Green in your love
On bright days
You grew sunblind
You thought me unkind
To remind you
How winter kills

Lost
In daydreams
You drove too fast
And got nowhere
You rode on half fare
When you got too scared
How winter kills

Tear at me, searching for
Weaker seams

Pain
In your eyes
Makes me cruel
Makes me spiteful
Tears are delightful
Welcome your nightfall
How winter kills

I tear at you, searching for
Weaker seams
