There are two versions of Love is a shield lyrics. I write only different parts:

1.
...
Love is a baby in your mothers arms,
love is your breath which takes me warm
...
There is a feeling flows through me,
when you're beside that motivates
my idle eyes seem to bright.
And all the pictures we run through,
seem to be perfect, seem to be true.
But nothing is still forever,
especially stay together.

...
I don't might now what's coming soon,
what count is us no matter,
what will be, all that it's simplycity.
The changing words we're taking in,
seem to be perfect, seem to win.
But nothing is still forever,
especially stay together.


Then they changed it:

2
...
love is your breath
which makes me warm
...
There is a feeling
that flows through me,
when you are near
you make it real
and we could live for this ideal.
And all the pictures we run through,
seem to be perfect,
seem to be true.
But nothing is quite forever,
especially staying together.

I don't care now
what comes along,
what counts is us,
no matter what will be,
just this naivety.
The changing words we're taking in,
seem to be perfect,
seem to win.
But nothing is quite forever,
especially staying together.


Why were there such changes?
I think 2nd variant sounds primitive. The 1st one was in the video, why change it?
Which version comes from when and where? When I was young in the 90s, I remember only "video version". When did the new version appear?

Hello,

the text of the first version (Single Version, 3:59) was formed in 1988. This version was recorded and produced together with Axel Henninger in the Dynaton studios in November 1988th. At the same time there was also produced "Feeling Down". In early 1989, the video for "Love Is A Shield" was produced in part by the North Sea in St. Peter Ording at cold temperatures. For the video the band used the Single Version with the first text. In the spring of 1989, the other eight songs from "Methods Of Silence" were recorded and mixed with Dan Lacksman in his Synsound Studios in Brussels. So the band had even more opportunities for their creative instrumentation of the new songs there. During this time the band worked with the vocal coach Peter Godwin. Thereby were made grammatical corrections for the album version (4:42) of "Love Is A Shield". Thus, the US 12 "Orbit Mix (8:09) had another version of the text as the Extended Version (5:20). Moreover a second single version was created, the Synsound Mix (3:57), which was then included on the US 12 "promo's. Since the German 7 "single, 12" Maxi Single, 3 "CD Single and 5" CD Maxi Single have been prepared in Hannover in the press factory. At this moment nothing could be changed at the text version and the first studio recordings. I personally like the text, the vocals and the sound of the Single Version and the Extended Version much better than the 2nd Version and the Album Version and in particular the US 12 "Orbit Mix are still very good.

Best regards. Wink
Lars
