Black Celebration


author: Martin Gore


Let's have a black celebration

Black celebration

Tonight


***


To celebrate the fact

That we've seen the back

Of another black day


***


I look to you

How you carry on

When all hope is gone

Can't you see


***


Your optimistic eyes

Seem like paradise

To someone like

Me


***


I want to take you

In my arms

Forgetting all I couldn't do today


***


Black celebration

Black celebration

Tonight


***


To celebrate the fact

That we've seen the back

Of another black day


***


I look to you

And your strong belief

Me, I want relief

Tonight


***


Consolation

I want so much

Want to feel your touch

Tonight


***


Take me in your arms

Forgetting all you couldn't do today


***


Black celebration

I'll drink to that

Black celebration

Tonight







Fly On The Windscreen - Final


author: Martin Gore


Death is everywhere

There are flies on the windscreen

For a start

Reminding us

We could be torn apart

Tonight


***


Death is everywhere

There are lambs for the slaughter

Waiting to die

And I can sense

The hours slipping by

Tonight


***


Come here

Kiss me

Now

Come here

Kiss me

Now


***


Death is everywhere

The more I look

The more I see

The more I feel

A sense of urgency

Tonight


***


Come here

Touch me

Kiss me

Touch me

Now

Touch me

Touch me


***


There are flies on the windscreen

There are lambs for the slaughter

There are flies on the windscreen


***


Come here

Touch me

Kiss me

Touch me

Now

Touch me

Touch me







A Question Of Lust


author: Martin Gore


Fragile

Like a baby in your arms

Be gentle with me

I'd never willingly

Do you harm


***


Apologies

Are all you ever seem to get from me

But just like a child

You make me smile

When you care for me

And you know...


***


It's a question of lust

It's a question of trust

It's a question of not letting

What we've built up

Crumble to dust

It is all of these things and more

That keep us together


***


Independence

Is still important for us though (we realise)

It's easy to make

The stupid mistake

Of letting go (do you know what I mean)


***


My weakness

You know each and every one (it frightens me)

But I need to drink

More than you seem to think

Before I'm anyone's

And you know...


***


It's a question of lust

It's a question of trust

It's a question of not letting

What we've built up

Crumble to dust

It is all of these things and more

That keep us together


***


Kiss me goodbye

When I'm on my own

But you know that I'd

Rather be home


***


It's a question of lust

It's a question of trust

It's a question of not letting

What we've built up

Crumble to dust

It is all of these things and more

That keep us together







Sometimes


author: Martin Gore


Sometimes

Only sometimes

I question everything

And I'm the first to admit

If you catch me in a mood like this

I can be tiring


***


Even embarassing

But you must

Feel the same

When you look around

You can't tell me honestly

You're happy with what you see

Oh sometimes

Only sometimes

You must be...

You must be...

As embarassing as me

Sometimes







It Doesn't Matter Two


author: Martin Gore


As I lay here with you

The shame lies with us

We talk of love and trust

That doesn't matter


***


Though we may be the last in the world

We feel like pioneers

Telling hopes and fears

To one another


***


And oh what a feeling

Inside of me

It might last for an hour

Wounds aren't healing

Inside of me

Though it feels good now

I know it's only for now


***


The feeling is intense

You grip me with your eyes

And then I realise

It doesn't matter







A Question Of Time


author: Martin Gore


I've got to get to you first

Before they do

It's just a question of time

Before they lay their hands on you

And make you just like the rest

I've got to get to you first

It's just a question of time


***


Well now you're only fifteen

And you look good

I'll take you under my wing

Somebody should

They've persuasive ways

And you'll believe what they say


***


It's just a question of time

It's running out for you

It won't be long

Until you do

Exactly what they want you to


***


I can see them now Hanging around

To mess you up

To strip you down

And have their fun

With my little one


***


It's just a question of time

It's running out for you


***


It won't be long

Until you do

Exactly what they want you to


***


It won't be long

Until you do

Exactly what they want you to


***


Sometimes I don't blame them

For wanting you

You look good

And they need something to do

Until I look at you

And then I condemn them

I know my kind

What goes on in our minds


***


It's just a question of time

It should be better

It's just a question of time

It should be better with you

It's just a question of time







Stripped


author: Martin Gore


Come with me

Into the trees

We'll lay on the grass

And let the hours pass


***


Take my hand

Come back to the land

Let's get away

Just for one day


***


Let me see you

Stripped down to the bone

Let me see you

Stripped down to the bone


***


Metropolis

Has nothing on this

You're breathing in fumes

I taste when we kiss


***


Take my hand

Come back to the land

Where everything's ours

For a few hours


***


Let me see you

Stripped down to the bone

Let me see you

Stripped down to the bone


***


Let me hear you

Make decisions

Without your television

Let me hear you speaking

Just for me


***


Let me see you

Stripped down to the bone


***


Let me hear you speaking

Just for me


***


Let me see you

Stripped down to the bone


***


Let me hear you crying

Just for me







Here Is The House


author: Martin Gore


Here is the house

Where it all happened

Those tender moments

Under this roof

Body and soul come together

As we come closer together

And as it happens

It happens here

In this house


***


And I feel your warmth

And it feels like home

And there's someone

Calling on the telephone

Let's stay home

It's cold outside

And I have so much

To confide to you


***


With or without words

I'll confide everything


***


Here is the house

Where it all happened

Those tender moments

Under this roof

Body and soul come together

As we come closer together

And as it happens

It happens here

In this house


***


So we stay at home

And I'm by your side

And you know

What's going on inside

Inside my heart

Inside this house

And I just want to

Let it out for you


***


And I feel your warmth

And it feels like home

And I feel your warmth

And it feels like home


***


Here is the house

Where it all happened

Those tender moments

Under this roof

Body and soul come together

As we come closer together







World Full Of Nothing


author: Martin Gore


Close

Naked

Skin on skin

Tears are falling

Tears of joy

Her first boy

His first girl

Makes a change


***


In a world full of nothing

Though it's not love

It means something


***


She's lonely

And he says

It's for her only

That he lusts

She doesn't trust him

Nothing is true

But he will do


***


In a world full of nothing

Though it's not love

It means something


***


It's easy to slip away

And believe it all


***


Though it's not love

It means something







Dressed In Black


author: Martin Gore


She's dressed in black again

And I'm falling down again

Down to the floor again

I'm begging for more again

But oh what can you do

When she's dressed in black


***


My mind wanders endlessly

On paths where she's leading me

With games that she likes to play

And words that she doesn't say

Not when whe're alone

And she's dressed in black


***


As a picture of herself

She's a picture of the world

A reflection of you

A reflection of me

And it's all there to see

If you only give in

To the fire within


***


Dressed in black again


***


Shadows fall onto me

As she stands there over me

And waits to encompass me

I lay here helplessly

But oh what can you do

When she's dressed in black


***


Dressed in black again







New Dress


author: Martin Gore


Sex jibe husband murders wife

Bomb blast victim fights for life

Girl Thirteen attacked with knife


***


Princess Di is wearing a new dress


***


Jet airliner shot from sky

Famine horror, millions die

Earthquake terror figures rise


***


Princess Di is wearing a new dress


***


You can't change the world

But you can change the facts

And when you change the facts

You change points of view

If you change points of view

You may change a vote

And when you change a vote

You may change the world


***


In black townships fires blaze

Prospects better premier says

Within sight are golden days


***


Princess Di is wearing a new dress


***


You can't change the world

But you can change the facts

And when you change the facts

You change points of view

If you change points of view

You may change a vote

And when you change a vote

You may change the world


***


Princess Di is wearing a new dress

But Not Tonight


single: "Stripped" / author: Martin Gore


Oh God it's raining

But I'm not complaining

It's filling me up with new life

The stars in the sky

Bring tears to my eyes

They're lighting my way tonight


***


And I haven't felt so alive

In years


***


Just for a day

On a day like today

I'll get away from this constant debauchery

The wind in my hair

Makes me so aware

How good it is to live tonight


***


And I haven't felt so alive

In years


***


The moon

Is shining in the sky

Reminding me

Of so many other nights

But they're not like tonight


***


Oh God it's raining

And I'm not containing

My pleasure at being so wet

Here on my own

All on my own

How good it feels to be alone tonight


***


And I haven't felt so alive

In years


***


The moon

Is shining in the sky

Reminding me

Of so many other nights

When my eyes had been so red

I'd been mistaken for dead

But not tonight







Black Day


single: "Stripped" / author: Martin Gore, Alan Wilder, Daniel Miller


Celebrate the fact

That we've see the back

Of another black day


***


Black day

Black day


***


I want to take you in my arms

Forgeting all I couldn't do today


***


Black day

Black day
