These:

Caressing the marble and stone
Love that was special for one
The waste in the fever I (and?) heat
How I wish you were here with me now

Body that curls in and dies
And shares that awful daylight
Warm like a dog 'round your feet
How I wish you were here with me now

Hangman looks round as he waits
Cord stretches tight then it breaks
Someday we will die in your dreams
How I wish you were here with me now


Or these? -

Caressing the marble and stone
Love that was special for one
The waste and the fever and hate
How I wish you were here with me now

The body that kills and hides
Matches an awful delight
Warm like a dog 'round your feet
How I wish you were here with me now

The hangman looks 'round as he waits
Gullet stretches tight and it breaks
Someday we will die in your dreams
How I wish we were here with you now
"Watching love grow, forever. Letting me know, forever."

Both seem to be wrong in different ways

They're both shit, at least by Ian's standards.

Seen as if I'm in the mood for lyrics, I'll give this a go. Sorry for the delay.

Here is what I think the lyrics are:

Caressing the marble and stone
Love that was special for one
The waste in the fever and heat
How I wish you were here with me now

Body that curls in and hides
And shares that awful daylight
Warn like a dog 'round your feet
How I wish you were here with me now

Hangman looks round as he waits
Cord stretches tight then it breaks
Someday we will die in your dreams
How I wish we were here with you now

Pretty sure that's correct.
The only line that is really problematic is the second line of verse two. It could well be something like 'xxxx that offer delight', with xxxx being words I can't make out.
It's also possible that 'heat' in the first verse may actually be 'hate'. Joy Division's version seems to be 'heat', but it's possible that Barney misheard it and sung 'hate' instead. It's difficult to tell.

Hope this helps.
