Leave In Silence




author: Martin Gore




I've told myself so many times before


But this time I think I mean it for sure


We have reached a full stop


Nothing's going to save us from the big drop




***




Reached our natural conclusion


Outlived the illusion


I hate being in these situations


That call for diplomatic relations


If I only knew the answer


Or I thought we had a chance


Or I could stop this


I would stop this thing


From spreading like a cancer




***




What can I say


I don't want to play anymore


What can I say


I'm heading for the door


I can't stand this emotional violence


Leave in silence


Leave in silence




***




We've been running around in circles all year


Doing this and that and getting nowhere


This will be the last time


I think I said that last time




***




If I only had a potion


Some magical lotion


That could stop this


I would set the wheels in motion









My Secret Garden




author: Martin Gore




My secret garden's not so secret anymore


Run from the house holding my head in my hands


Feeling dejected, feeling like a child might feel


It all seems so absurd


That this should have occurred


My very only secret


And I had to go and leak it!


My secret garden's not so secret anymore!




***




No, my secret garden's not so secret anymore!


Run through the fields, down to the edge of the water


Can't stay long, here comes the reason why -


She'll catch me if she can,


Take me by the hand


I'll have to keep on running


And I just can't see the fun in


My secret garden not being secret anymore!




***




It used to be so easy


On days such as these she'd


Search and search for hours


In among the flowers


I loved it! - I loved her!


Play the fool, act so cruel - I loved it!


Read her book, take a look - I loved her!




***




It all seems so absurd


That this should have occurred


My very only secret


And I had to go and leak it!


My secret garden's not so secret anymore!









Monument




author: Martin Gore




When the site was found


We laid the foundations down


It didn't take long before


They came back tumbling down


Don't build at night


You need a little light


How else are you going to see


What it is going to be like




***




So we picked up our tools


And we worked in the morning light


With the last stone placed


Wasn't it a wonderful site


But it fell back down


And scattered all around


Anything passes


When you need glasses




***




My monument


It feel down


My monument


It feel down




***




Work all of my days for this kind of praise


It fell down


Work all of my days


It fell down









Nothing To Fear





author: Martin Gore




Instrumental









See You




author: Martin Gore




All I want to do is see you again


Is that too much to ask for


I just want to see your sweet smile


Smiled the way it was before


Well I'll try not to hold you


And I'll try not to kiss you


And I won't even touch you




***




All I want to do is see you


Don't you know that it's true


I remember the days when we walked through the woods


We'd sit on a bench for a while


I treasure the way we used to laugh and play


And look in each others eyes


You can keep me at a distance if you don't trust my resistance


But I swear I won't touch you




***




Well I know five years is a long time and that times change


But I think that you'll find people are basically the same




***




If the water's still flowing we can go for a swim


And do the things we used to do


And if I'm reluctant you can pull me in


We can relive our youth




***




But we'll just stay friendly like sister and brother


Though I think I still love you









Satellite




author: Martin Gore




Now hear this my friends


I'll never be the same again


Going to lock myself in a cold black room


Going to shadow myself in a veil of gloom


I will function, operate


I will be a satellite of hate




***




Driven to this point by a chain of events


Each one pushed me nearer the edge


Going to send my message through to you


You'll receive the signal too


I will function, operate


I will be a satellite of hate




***




Higher, Higher




***




Disillusioned - I was disenchanted


Forgot the love that had been implanted


Heard the lies and I felt the cold


It broke my heart and I lost control


Now I'm a satellite of a free state


I'm a satellite of hate









The Meaning Of Love




author: Martin Gore




I've read more than a hundred books


Seeing love mentioned many thousand times


But despite all the places I've looked


It's still no clearer


I'm still no nearer


The meaning of love




***




Noted down all my observations


Spent an evening watching television


Still I couldn't say with precision


Know it's a feeling and it comes from above


But what's the meaning


The meaning of love


(tell me)




***




From the notes that I've made so far


Love seems something like wanting a scar


Well I could be wrong


I'm just not sure you see


I've never been in love before




***




Next I asked several friends of mine


If they could spare a few minutes of their time


Their looks suggested that I've lost my mind


Tell me the answer


My Lord high above


Tell me the meaning


The meaning of love




***




From the notes that I've made so far


Love seems something like wanting a scar


Well I could be wrong


I'm just not sure you see


I've never been in love before




***




The meaning of love


(tell me)


Tell me the meaning of love


(tell me)









A Photograph Of You




author: Martin Gore




What good is a photograph of you


Everytime I look at it


It makes me feel blue




***




What use is a souvenir


Of something we once had


When all it ever does is


Make me feel bad




***




I wish I could tear it up


But then again I haven't the guts


I wish I could throw it on the fire


I wish I could


But to say I would


I'd be a liar




***




What good is a colour print


Of a little baby doll


When just one little glance


Is enough to make me feel dull




***




I hoped I would misplace it


But then I take such good care of it


I wish it would disappear


I say I wish


But then I relish


It being here









Shouldn't Have Done That




author: Martin Gore




Plans made in the nursery


Can change the course of history


Remember that




***




Mummy's annoyed, says go and play


Don't show your face


Stay away all day


Shouldn't have done that




***




A small boy and his infantry


Marching around so naturally


Shouldn't have done that




***




Grows up and goes to school


Such a nice boy


Obeys all the rules


Mummy's proud of that




***




Leaves school to follow his ambition


Knows what he wants


To be a politician


Shouldn't have done that!









The Sun And The Rainfall




author: Martin Gore




Someone will call


Something will fall


And smash on the floor


Without reading the text


Know what comes next


Seen it before


And it's painful




***




Things must change


We must rearrange them


Or we'll have to estrange them


All that I'm saying


A game's not worth playing


Over and over again




***




You're the one I like best


You retain my interest


You're the only one


If it wasn't for you


Don't know what I'd do


Unpredictable like the sun


And the rainfall

Now, This Is Fun




single: "See You" / author: Martin Gore




Here speaks the voice of reason


It's talking to me


Loud and clearly


And obviously


It's something to say




***




Here comes another sentence


It is relentless


It tries my patience


But nevertheless


It's for our concern




***




We can't see the benefits


So we'll ignore it


Or disobey it


And then we'll say that


This is fun




***




This is real fun


This is fun
