In The Morning





author: Richard Blaise Machin, Dave Gahan, Richard David Machin, Ian John Glover




The leaves are falling, it's in your nature


I'm counting all the sticks left on the ground


Early this morning, when I tried to wake ya


You wasn't making any kind of sound




***




Why can't you hear me?



Why can't you feel me?



Was there a message, that I'm not getting


Do you think that I am lost or am I found


Just after midnight, when I woke up sweating


I was dreaming you were right here with me now




***




Oh, why can't you hear me


Why don't you heal me


I am lost, I am lost here


I'm lost here now




***




So I am nothing if I'm not with you


In the morning, we'll forget this night somehow









Longest Day





author: Dave Gahan, Ian Glover, Richard Blaise Machin




I was walking home alone late the other night


I couldn't see a single star in the sky


Oh, they must be too high


Shadows dance around me in the dark


Don't stop




***




This could be the longest day


And the night has yet to come


This must be the door to take


There's nowhere left to run


***




This could be the longest day


And the night has yet to come


This must be the door to take


I've nowhere left to run




***




Was eleven years to change what had been lost


One single shot was fired at what a cost


Oh, at what a cost




***




This could be the longest day


And the night has yet to come


This must be the door to take


There's nowhere left to run




***




This could be the longest day


And the night has yet to come


This must be the door to take


I've nowhere left to run





***




I wanna run


I better run now


Run


As far as I can




***




This could be the longest day


And the night has yet to come


This must be the door to take


There's nowhere left to run




***




This could be the longest day


And the night has yet to come


This must be the door to take


I've nowhere left to run




***




I wanna run


I better run now


Run


As far as I can









Presence of God





author: Dave Gahan, Richard Blaise Machin, Ian John Glover, Richard David Machin




I can feel the presence of God


Occupying my intentions


In my soul, within my thoughts


And in ways to dreary to mention


These thoughts torment me


They mould and shape me


There's a man that I should be,



Or someone I could be


Nothing can break me


Nothing that I say


You can't shape me,



You can't take me, so set me free.




***




I can feel the presence of God


In need of my attention


In this room and in your words


In too many ways to mention


These thoughts torment me


They mould and shape me


There's a man that I should be,



Or someone I could be


Nothing can break me


Nothing that I say


You can't shape me,



You can't take me, so set me free




***




I can feel the presence of love


Holding my attention


She torments me


Creates and shapes me


There's a man that I should be


Or someone I could be


Nothing can break me


Nothing that I say


You can't shape me,



You can't take me, so set me free.









Just Try





author: Ian John Glover, Richard Blaise Machin, Dave Gahan, Richard David Machin




You came to me with open arms


To take away my fears


I took you in and you stayed a while


You lived with me right here




***




You told me to believe in something


Something that's true


Like the mountains and the deep blue ocean


So much bigger that you




***




You said: Just try


Come on, just try


Just try


Just try




***




Just try




***




I offered you a place to stay


Somewhere to rest your head


The Lord knows I need you here


There were something you said




***




You'll have to believe in something


Something bigger than you


Like the great white open spaces


There's religions too




***




She said: Just try


Come on, just try


Just try


Just try




***




Just try




***




You gave me more than I deserved


You gave me peace


You gave anything i loved in this world


And now I have to sleep




***




Just let me sleep...




***




Just try


Just try


I have to sleep


Just try


Just try









Gone Too Far





author: Richard David Machin, Dave Gahan, Richard Blaise Machin, Ian John Glover




I watched you rising


I watched you sleep


I knew you were just like me


Intoxicated


Oh, struggling to breathe


I heard you whimpering


In the back room


Gone too far


Too far too soon




***




I guess it's your time here


That time for you


When it all comes crashing down on you


Yes, I've been praying


Oh, so what else am I supposed to do?



I heard you whispering


In the back room


You've gone too far,



Too far too soon




***




You made that mistake now


They were gunning for you


You've gone too far


Too far too soon




***




Now you feel nothing


Life can be cruel




***




That night I saw you


You passed by my room


I hope you make peace with the man in the moon









Point Sur Pt. 1





Instrumental









Take Me Back Home





author: Dave Gahan, Richard Blaise Machin, Richard David Machin, Ian John Glover




The first time you gave me freedom


For the first time I felt free


as long as you were right with me here


there's nothing else I would need




***




You take me back there


take me back home please


No I can't go in there


Just take me back home, home


that's where I want to be




***




I was a fool before I met you


Only fools find it hard to believe


You just might be might only savior


If you are then come and save me


if it's true come back and save me




***




You take me back there


take me back home please


No I can't go in there


Just take me back home, home


that's where I want to be now




***




With all my stumbling misses


and all your wonderful kisses


that's where i want to be


that's just me.




***




You take me back there


take me back home please


No I can't go in there


Just take me back home, home


that's where I want to be now









Bitterman





author: Richard David Machin, Dave Gahan, Richard Blaise Machin, Ian John Glover




There's no tomorrow


Only yesterday


I may have drunk too much


Now I'll have to pay


So how far should I go


Oh that's hard to say




***




Wild is the sky


That covers you


Long be the night


That comforts you


Dark is the day confronting you


And pushing you




***




There's a face in the mirror


That I don't understand


See the one that I wear is not who I am


I made up my mind


And I want to stay




***




Wild is the sky


That covers you


Long be the night


That comforts you


Dark is the day confronting you


And pushing you




***




You're such a bitter man


Doing all that you can


In the name of fun


Just a bitter man


Taking all that you can


All for number one




***




There's no confusion


Only black


No questions left to ask


Like, am I coming back?



I made up my mind


And I want to stay




***




You're such a bitter man


Doing all that you can


In the name of fun


Just a bitter man


Taking all that you can


For the number one




***




You're such a bitter man


Doing all that you can


All in the name of fun


Just a bitter man


Taking all that you can


All for number one









I Can't Stay





author: Dave Gahan, Richard David Machin, Ian John Glover, Richard Blaise Machin




Even as you talk


I can't understand a word


Lips they keep on moving


Telling tired tales that have all been heard




***




So many precious days


And all the parts you've played


You've looked so fine


All those days have gone


You tried to get along


Well not all, not all the time




***




I can't stay with you in here anymore


I feel like my time is running out


I know that much for sure




***




I can't stay another day in here with you


I feel like my time is running out


I know that much for sure




***




Spend your days complaining


About what's only in your head


Turning every page in your book of everything


You should have done instead




***




So many wasted days


And all the parts you've played


It's the same old song


Well I guess it's up to you


And I wonder what you'll do


Don't take, don't take too long


***




I can't stay with you in here anymore


I feel like my time is running out


I know that much is true




***




I can't stay for another day in here with you


I feel like my time is running out


I know that much is true




***




I can't stay with you in here anymore


I feel like my time is running out


I know that much for sure




***




I can't stay for another day in here with you


I feel like my time is running out


I know that much for sure




***




I can't stay with you in here anymore


I feel like my time is running out


I know that much is true




***




I can't stay for another day in here with you


I feel like my time is running out


I know that much for sure


I know that much for sure









Take





author: Ian Glover, Richard Blaise Machin, Dave Gahan




Take, take all you can


From the life you've been given


And stop making plans


This world is all that you need


You just have to notice


Remember to breathe




***




There's a price that you pay


With the games that you play with that devil


And you better be sure when you walk through that door before you meddle


Life is so short and you're going to get caught being bought


And the choices you make and the demons you wake must be fought




***




Take, take all you can


From the life you've been given


And stop making plans




***




There's a price that you pay


With the games you play with that devil


And you better be sure when you walk through that door before you meddle


The life is so short and you're going to get caught being bought


And the choices you make and the demons you wake must be fought









Tonight





author: Richard David Machin, Dave Gahan, Ian John Glover, Richard Blaise Machin




When you're looking for salvation


Better take some time to get your story straight


Are you sure you're ready for forgiveness


You might have left it kind of late




***




Tonight


No it's never too late


Tonight


No it's never too late




***




When you're looking for salvation


In another person's life


Oh, you better get yourself a witness


You might consider a wife


Tonight, tonight




***




So listen to what I'm saying


Don't be listening to their fear


Oh, you gotta jump into the water sometimes


You gotta risk it all, my dear, my dear




***




Looks like you might be heading for some trouble


You keep listening to their lies


Oh, I know you have that nagging sickness sometimes


We can change it all tonight


Tonight, tonight
