Depeche Mode









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
