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
