Suspended In Gaffa Lyrics
What it's about: Seeing something you really want (God in this case), then not being able to see or experience it ever again unless you work very hard. (It's a thematic first cousin to Sat In Your Lap, with a more religious bent.)
Running time: 3:45
Ne T'enfuis Pas Lyrics (French/English)
What it's about: Worried that her lover is about to leave, a possessive woman wrestles with her conscience over her plans to make him stay.
Running time: 2:30
The front cover features the same image that appears on the UK There Goes A Tenner sleeve, but Kate's lips have been retouched! The rear sleeve is exclusive to Spain. (Scans and information courtesy of Boolbar.)
The B-side title is misspelled on this and the Dutch, German, Australian and first UK releases of Ne T'enfuis Pas. ("T'en Fui" doesn't mean anything in French.)  It appears that all of these misspelled versions are the original mix.  All later versions, with corrected spelling, are remixes (see ETC3).
The B-side is the original mix of Ne T'enfuis Pas, only released on a handful of singles in late 1982.  The vocals are a little "muddy" and buried deeper in the mix.  Additionally, the Fairlight is brighter, louder and "more forward", particularly near the end.
