Welcome To My World




author: Martin Gore




Welcome to my world


Step right through the door


Leave your tranquilisers at home


You don't need them anymore




***




All the drama queens have gone


And the devil got dismayed


He packed up and fled this town


His master plan delayed




***




And if you stay a while


I'll penetrate your soul


I'll bleed into your dreams


You'll want to lose control




***




I'll weep into your eyes


I'll make your visions sing


I'll open endless skies


And ride your broken wings




***




Welcome to my world


Welcome to my world


Welcome to my world




***




We'll watch the sunrise set


And the moon begin to blush


Our naked innocence


Translucently too much




***




And I'll hold you in my arms


And keep you by my side


And we'll sleep the devil's sleep


Just to keep him satisfied




***




And if you stay a while


I'll penetrate your soul


I'll bleed into your dreams


You'll want to lose control




***




I'll weep into your eyes


I'll make your visions sing


I'll open endless skies


And ride your broken wings




***




Welcome to my world


Welcome to my world


Welcome to my world









Angel




author: Martin Gore




The angel of love was upon me


And Lord I felt so small


The legs beneath me weakened


And I began to crawl


Confused and contented


I slithered around


With feelings beyond me


I was lost, I was found




***




The angel of love was upon me


And Lord I felt so weak


I felt my tongue move in my mouth


And I began to speak


A strange kind of language


I don't understand


A babbling fountain


I couldn't have planned




***




Oh leave me here forevermore


I've found the peace I've been searching for




***




The angel of love was upon me


And Lord I felt so high


I swear I could have reached up


Placed my hands upon the sky


A radiant rainbow was following me around


With elevated senses I could see and taste sound




***




The angel of love was upon me


And Lord I felt so clean


Like a preacher on Sunday


My heart was serene


I waded into the water


I was bathed, I was drowned


Like all sinners before me


I knelt down on the ground




***




Oh leave me here forevermore


I've found the peace I've been searching for


Oh let me sleep forevermore


I've found the peace I've been searching for









Heaven




author: Martin Gore




Sometimes I slide away silently


I slowly lose myself over and over


Take comfort in my skin endlessly


Surrender to my will forever and ever




***




I dissolve in trust


I will sing with joy


I will end up dust


I'm in heaven




***




I stand in golden rays radiantly


I burn a fire of love over and over


Reflecting endless light relentlessly


I have embraced the flame forever and ever




***




I will scream the word


Jump into the void


I will guide the herd


Up to Heaven









Secret To The End




author: Dave Gahan, Kurt Uenala




Oh when I look at you


I'm probably the same way too


I got a feeling that it's coming soon


Could this be the end




***




When I look around this room


There must be something I can do


Can I convince you that it isn't true


We've come to the end




***




Oh did I disappoint you


I wanted to believe it's true


Oh the book of love was not enough


To see us through


The problem


Should have been you (Should have been you)



Should have been you (Could have been you)



Should have been you (Would have been you)



(Should have been you, Would have been you)



If it hadn't been me


(Would have been you, Could have been you)



Should have been you (Should have been you)



Should have been you (Would have been you)



(Should have been you)



If it hadn't been me




***




It seems so obvious to you


You're feeling what I am feeling too


The final chapter in the contract expires soon


We've come to the end




***




Thank God I'm not the same as you


You always know exactly what to do


It's who I am, is not for you


We've come to the end




***




Oh did I disappoint you


I wanted to believe it's true


Oh the book of love was not enough


To see us through


The problem


Should have been you (Should have been you)



Should have been you (Could have been you)



Should have been you (Would have been you)



(Should have been you, Could have been you)



If it hadn't been me


(Would have been you, Could have been you)



Should have been you (Should have been you)



Should have been you (Would have been you)



(Should have been you)



If it hadn't been me




***




(Could have been you, Should have been you, Could have been you)



Would have been you (Would have been you)



Should have been you (Could have been you, Should have been you, Could have been you)



If it hadn't been me (Would have been you, Could have been you, Would have been you)



If it hadn't been me (Would have been you, Would have been you, Should have been you)



If it hadn't been me (Should have been you, Could have been you, Should have been you)



If it hadn't been me (Could have been you, Could have been you, Could have been you)



If it hadn't been me









My Little Universe




author: Martin Gore




My Little Universe


Is expanding


Slowly


And those who know me


Say I'm growing every day




***




Beautiful emptiness


Surrounds me


I take small steps


I'm making progress


In a non-specific way




***




Here I am king


I decide everything


I let no-one in


No-one


No-one


No-one




***




Limited consciousness


Preserves me


It protects me


And just connects enough


To keep the wolves at bay




***




My Little Universe


Is expanding


Slowly


And those who know me


Say I'm growing every day




***




Here I am king


I decide everything


I let no-one in


No-one


No-one


No-one









Slow




author: Martin Gore




Slow, slow


As slow as you can go


So I can feel all I want to know


Slow, slow


I'll go with your flow




***




Let the world keep its carnival pace


I prefer to look into your beautiful face


What a waste


Let the stars continue to fly by


I don't have one desire to understand why


I don't try




***




Slow, slow


As slow as you can go


I want my senses to overflow


Slow, slow


And doesn't it show




***




I don't need a race in my bed


When speed's in my heart


And speed's in my head instead


It's tempting for fools to rush in


When something's so good


Why should we rush a thing


It's a sin




***




Slow, slow


As slow as you can go


That's how I like it


I like it




***




I don't need a race in my bed


When speed's in my heart


And speed's in my head instead




***




Slow, slow


As slow as you can go


That's how I like it


I like it




***




That's how I like it


That's how I like it









Broken




author: Dave Gahan, Kurt Uenala




If you want control


Without any pain


How long will you suffer


How long you reign




***




You see the friend that I knew


Cannot be found


Replaced by another


Wearing his crown




***




There's a place where I go


Without any sound


Only you can reach me


Only you're allowed




***




Then you're so far away


You're so far from here


Do you remember


A time without tears




***




When you're falling I will catch you


You don't have to fall that far


You can make it, I will be there


You were broken from the start




***




When you were a child


You'd dream all day long


You'd dream of the future


Get lost in your songs




***




Now that time is gone


It's lost for you now


Words long forgotten


Forgotten somehow




***




When you're falling I will catch you


You don't have to fall that far


You can make it, I will be there


You were broken from the start




***




When you're falling I will catch you


You don't have to fall that far


You can make it, I will be there


You were broken from the start




***




When you're falling I will catch you


You don't have to fall that far


You can make it, I will be there


You were broken from the start









The Child Inside




author: Martin Gore




There is darkness and death in your eyes


What have you got buried inside


The shallow grave in your soul


The ghosts there have taken control


You really should have dug a little deeper there


Body parts are starting to appear and scare


The child inside away




***




Each tear that flows down your face


Trickles then picks up the pace


And turns to a river inside


A river that will not subside


I can hear that dreadful overflowing sound


And watching from afar I see a child is drowned


The child inside your heart




***




I can see you drifting away


Heading for the light


I can see you drifting away


Every night




***




Why were you always inside


On days when the weather was fine


And while we were running around


You were nowhere to be found


You know you should have taken all your dolls to bed


But you were made to play games with your soul instead


The child inside you died









Soft Touch / Raw Nerve




author: Martin Gore




Have I got a soft touch


Have I got a soft touch


Is my radar that off


Is my radar that off




***




I'm thinking if you're sinking


Then I'll drown


I've got a confession


Your depression will take me down




***




Am I on the right track


Am I on the right track


Have I picked a bad time


Have I picked a bad time




***




It's seeming that you're dreaming through my eyes


Why protest when your success is my prize




***




Oh brother, give me a helping hand


Oh brother, tell me you understand




***




Have I hit a raw nerve


Have I hit a raw nerve




***




Have I got a soft touch


Have I got a soft touch




***




I'm thinking if you're sinking


Then I'll drown


I've got a suspicion that your position is unsound




***




Oh brother, give me a helping hand


Oh brother, tell me you understand




***




Have I hit a raw nerve


Have I hit a raw nerve




***




Have I got a soft touch


Have I got a soft touch




***




Have I hit a raw nerve


Have I hit a raw nerve




***




Have I got a soft touch


Have I got a soft touch









Should Be Higher




author: Dave Gahan, Kurt Uenala




I dream of a day when I dare to believe you're the answer


When the shame and the guilt are removed and the truth appears


Oh the touch of your hand, I lose who I am if I want to


I tried to resist but succumb to the bliss of your kiss




***




You should be higher


I'll take you higher


Don't be afraid


You'll just have to pray




***




Your lies are more attractive than the truth


Love is all I want


Your lies are written down there in your book


Love is all I want




***




Your arms are infected


They're holding the truth


Oh stop all your crying


This one you'll lose




***




You should be higher


I'll take you higher


Don't be afraid


You'll just have to pray




***




Your lies are more attractive than the truth


Love is all I want


Your lies are written down there in your book


Love is all I want




***




You should be higher


You should be higher









Alone




author: Martin Gore




I was there when you needed me most


I was there when you wanted me least


I was your father, your son and your Holy Ghost and priest


Through your failures and success


Through your losses and gains


I didn't see much happiness or pain




***




I couldn't save your soul


I couldn't even take you home


I couldn't fill that hole


Alone




***




I saw you at your best


I knew you at your worst


I couldn't tell if you were blessed or cursed


There's a thin grey line


Between the black and the white


It's evidently hard to find at night




***




I couldn't save your soul


I couldn't even take you home


I couldn't play that role


Alone




***




Now it's too


Too late for


Words that should have been said long ago




***




I was there when you needed me most


I was there when you wanted me least


I was your father, your son and your Holy Ghost and priest




***




I couldn't save your soul


I couldn't even take you home


I couldn't fill that hole


Alone









Soothe My Soul




author: Martin Gore




I'm coming for you


When the sun goes down


I'm coming for you


When there's no-one around




***




I'll come to your house


Break down the door


Girl I'm shaking


And I need more




***




There's only one way to soothe my soul


There's only one way to soothe my soul


There's only one way to soothe my soul


Only one way to soothe my soul


Only one way


Only one way


Only one way


Only one way


Only one way


Only one way


Only one way


Only one way




***




I'm coming for you


I need to feel your skin


I'm coming for you


To stop this crawling




***




I'm taking my place


By your side


And I'm not leaving


Until I'm satisfied




***




There's only one way to soothe my soul


There's only one way to soothe my soul


There's only one way to soothe my soul


There's only one way to soothe my soul


There's only one way


Only one way


Only one way


Only one way


Only one way


Only one way


Only one way


Only one way




***




I'm coming for you


My body's hungry


I'm coming for you


Like a junkie




***




I can't stop


Desire in me


I'm not waiting


Patiently




***




There's only one way to soothe my soul


Only one way to soothe my soul


There's only one way to soothe my soul


Only one way to soothe my soul


There's only one way to soothe my soul


There's only one way to soothe my soul


Only one way to soothe my soul


Only one way to soothe my soul


There's only one way


Only one way


There's only one way to soothe my soul


Only one way to soothe my soul


Only one way


Only one way


Only one way









Goodbye




author: Martin Gore




It was you that took my soul


And threw it in the fire


And tamed it in the rapture


And filled me with desire


Now I'm pure, now I'm clean


I feel cured and serene in you




***




There is no denying


How I have been changed


You won't hear me crying


Now misery is strange


I can dream, I can fly


Now it seems I get by with you




***




Goodbye pain


Goodbye again




***




I was always looking


Looking for someone


Someone to stick my hook in


Pull it out and run


Now I'm caught on your line


All my thoughts are entwined in you




***




Goodbye pain


Goodbye again




***




If you see me walking


To the Golden Gates


Turn around, start talking


Stop and hesitate


I'll be waiting up there


With my fate in the air for you




***




Good goodbye


Good goodbye


Good goodbye


Good goodbye


Good goodbye


Good goodbye


Good goodbye


Good goodbye


Good goodbye


Good goodbye


Good goodbye









Long Time Lie




author: Dave Gahan, Martin Gore




It's been a while since you did something


Not so long since you complained


You sit around here doing nothing


Every day




***




You're the coward who points the finger


I understand that I'm helping you


You have delusions in some spaced-out fantasy


That's what you do




***




He loves to wallow in the glory


Loves to cut you down to size


Try to make you believe in all of his lies




***




It's been a long long long long long long time


It's been a long long long long long long time


A long time lie




***




Don't you ever look in the mirror


Don't you know there's so much more


Locked up inside that box behind your door




***




All your twisted conversations


When you're sitting all alone


Just remember we know your secret


While you moan




***




He loves to wallow in the glory


Loves to cut you down to size


Try to make you believe in all of his lies




***




It's been a long long long long long long time


It's been a long long long long long long time


A long time lie









Happens All The Time




author: Dave Gahan, Kurt Uenala




No need to feel ashamed


There's nothing to be gained


When your dreams are in the past




***




Like stars, we crash and burn


Only to return


Life goes by so fast




***




So who is left to blame


Nothing's quite the same


We can't live in the past




***




I'm burning as hot as the sun


And I've only just begun


Love, it fades so fast




***




Sometimes I forget


All I will regret


When I leave this world behind




***




Sometimes I'm not sure


What I'm fighting for


It happens all the time




***




I know I've had enough


Maybe far too much


It's easy to be kind




***




When it's just me and you


I know what I have to do


I can leave this world behind




***




No need to feel ashamed


There's nothing to be gained


When your dreams are in the past




***




Like stars, we crash and burn


Only to return


Times they change so fast




***




Sometimes I forget


All I will regret


When I leave this world behind




***




Sometimes I'm not sure


What I'm fighting for


It happens all the time


It happens all the time


It happens all the time









Always




author: Martin Gore




The well is dry and the stream runs shallow


And the sun is high and the field lies fallow


My tongue is tied and my body aching


Now I'm open wide and afraid of breaking




***




The food is hot and the table's ready


But my stomach's knots make my hands unsteady


So I take to pacing up and down the room


While my heart keeps racing and my mind's consumed




***




I just want to be part of the light of the light of the light of the light of the light in your eyes


I just want to be part of the light of the light of the light of the light of the light in your eyes




***




The bed is made and the candles burning


All our games are played and the clock keeps turning


We're out of tricks with the silence cutting


And the daggers stick as the doors keep shutting




***




I just want to be part of the fight of the fight of the fight of the fight of the fight in your eyes


I just want to be part of the fight of the fight of the fight of the fight of the fight in your eyes




***




Always, always, always, always (forever)



Always (forever), always (forever), always (forever), always









All That's Mine




author: Dave Gahan, Kurt Uenala




I know it's hard to reach you


I know it's hard to breathe


I know it's hard to be you sometimes


I can't imagine what that means




***




This must be someone else's story


I can't follow what you've planned


How can this be about me


Am I supposed to understand




***




Like a ship on the ocean


Heading out to sea


You can hardly see it now


It's a lot like you


Lost like me




***




You're still looking for redemption


Still can't find a trace


If there is nothing after


There'll be no saving grace




***




I'm giving you control now


I need some kind of sign


Come take away this sorrow now


I gave you all that's mine




***




Like a ship on the ocean


Heading out to sea


You can hardly see it now


It's a lot like you




***




Like a ship on the ocean


Heading out to sea


You can hardly see it now


It's a lot like you


Lost like me
