Dream On




author: Martin Gore




As your bony fingers close around me


Long and spindly


Death becomes me


Heaven can you see what I see




***




Hey you pale and sickly child


You're death and living reconciled


Been walking home a crooked mile




***




Paying debt to karma


You party for a living


What you take won't kill you


But careful what you're giving




***




There's no time for hesitating


Pain is ready, pain is waiting


Primed to do it's educating




***




Unwanted, uninvited kin


It creeps beneath your crawling skin


It lives without it lives within you




***




Feel the fever coming


You're shaking and twitching


You can scratch all over


But that won't stop you itching




***




Can you feel a little love


Can you feel a little love




***




Dream on dream on




***




Blame it on your karmic curse


Oh shame upon the universe


It knows its lines


It's well rehearsed




***




It sucked you in, it dragged you down


To where there is no hallowed ground


Where holiness is never found




***




Paying debt to karma


You party for a living


What you take won't kill you


But careful what you're giving




***




Can you feel a little love


Can you feel a little love




***




Dream on dream on








Shine




author: Martin Gore




Put on your blindfold


And a dress that's tight


And come with me


On a mystery night


Open your eyes




***




Follow our stars under a painted sky


We'll leave the world behind


We're learning to fly


We used to get by




***




Forget the pictures on your TV screen


We'll steal the visions


That you keep for your dreams


You can turn me on




***




I was blind and I saw the light


My angel coming


In a brilliant white


Shine for me




***




You've been hanging from a rope of mediocrity


Strung up by your insecurities


You can shine for me


Somebody has to


Shine for me


It's difficult not to


Shine for me




***




Follow our stars under a painted sky


We'll leave the world behind


We're learning to fly


We used to get by




***




Forget the pictures on your TV screen


We'll steal the visions


That you keep for your dreams


You can turn me on




***




You've been hanging from a rope of mediocrity


Strung up by your insecurities


You can shine for me


Somebody has to


Shine for me


It's difficult not to


Shine for me


Somebody has to


Shine for me


It's difficult not to


Shine for me









The Sweetest Condition




author: Martin Gore




Taken in by the delicate noise


Knocked to the ground by the subtle thunder


Shackled and bound by the sound of your voice


Wandering around in silent wonder




***




What chance did I have


With the silver moon


Hanging in the sky


Opening old wounds




***




Taking hold of the hem of your dress


Cleanliness only comes in small doses


Bodily whole but my head's in a mess


Fuelling obsession that borders psychosis




***




It's a sad disease


Creeping through my mind


Causing disabilities


Of the strangest kind




***




Getting lost in the folds of your skirt


There's a price that I pay for my mission


A body in heaven and a mind full of dirt


How I suffer the sweetest condition




***




Taken in by the delicate noise


Knocked to the ground by the subtle thunder


Shackled and bound by the sound of your voice


Wandering around in silent wonder









When The Body Speaks




author: Martin Gore




To the soul's desires


The body listens


What the flesh requires


Keeps the heart imprisoned




***




What the spirit seeks


The mind will follow


When the body speaks


All else is hollow




***




I'm just an angel


Driving blindly


Through this world




***




I'm just a slave here


At the mercy


Of a girl




***




Oh I need your tenderness


Oh I need your touch


Oh I dream of one caress


Oh I pray too much




***




To the soul's desires


The body listens


What the flesh requires


Keeps the heart imprisoned




***




What the spirit seeks


The mind will follow


When the body speaks


All else is hollow




***




You keep me waiting


For the promise


That is mine




***




Please stop debating


Please stop wasting


Your time




***




Oh I need your tenderness


Oh I need your touch


Oh I dream of one caress


Oh I pray too much









The Dead Of Night




author: Martin Gore




We're the horniest boys


With the corniest ploys


Who take the easiest girls


To our sleaziest worlds




***




With our lecherous plans


In our treacherous hands


You'd be wasting your time


Saying no, it's a crime




***




All that we live for you'll regret


All you remember we'll forget




***




We are the dead of night


We're in the zombie room


We're twilight's parasites


With self-inflicted wounds




***




We are the dead of night


We're in the zombie room


Heavenly oversights


Eating from silver spoons




***




With our decadent minds


And our innocent lines


You'll be playing our games


With your bodies in flames




***




When delirious fun


Has seriously begun


You'll be down on your knees


You'll be begging us please




***




All we're demanding you'll supply


All we're accused of we'll deny




***




We are the dead of night


We're in the zombie room


We're twilight's parasites


With self-inflicted wounds




***




We are the dead of night


We're in the zombie room


Heavenly oversights


Eating from silver spoons

Freelove




author: Martin Gore




If you've been hiding from love


If you've been hiding from love


I can understand where you're coming from


I can understand where you're coming from




***




If you've suffered enough


If you've suffered enough


I can understand what you're thinking of


I can see the pain that you're frightened of




***




And I'm only here


To bring you free love


Let's make it clear


That this is free love


No hidden catch


No strings attached


Just free love


No hidden catch


No strings attached


Just free love




***




I've been running like you


I've been running like you


Now you understand why I'm running scared


Now you understand why I'm running scared




***




I've been searching for truth


I've been searching for truth


And I haven't been getting anywhere


No I haven't been getting anywhere




***




And I'm only here


To bring you free love


Let's make it clear


That this is free love


No hidden catch


No strings attached


Just free love


No hidden catch


No strings attached


Just free love




***




Hey girl


You've got to take this moment


Then let it slip away


Let go of complicated feelings


Then there's no price to pay




***




We've been running from love


We've been running from love


And we don't know what we're doing here


No we don't know what we're doing here




***




We're only here


Sharing our free love


Let's make it clear


That this is free love


No hidden catch


No strings attached


Just free love


No hidden catch


No strings attached


Just free love









Comatose




author: Martin Gore




Comatose, almost


You've got me dreaming


Slipping in


And Sliding out


Of conscious feeling




***




Take a light


Start the flame


Play the game


I am lost


In your eyes


Hypnotised


Here I believe


Dreams never deceive




***




Comatose, almost


You've got me dreaming


Slipping in


And sliding out


Life has no meaning




***




Bodies move


Colours change


Girl you're strange


Here inside


I'm at home


I'm alive




***




Don't be afraid


I'm floating away




***




Comatose, almost


You've got me dreaming


Slipping in


And sliding out


Of conscious feeling




***




Comatose, almost




***




Comatose, almost




***




Comatose









I Feel Loved




author: Martin Gore




It's the dark night of my soul


And temptation's taking hold


But through the pain and the suffering


Through the heartache and trembling




***




I feel loved


I feel loved




***




As the darkness closes in


In my head I hear whispering


Questioning and beckoning


But I'm not taken in




***




I feel loved


I feel loved




***




From the depths of my emptiness


Comes a feeling of inner bliss


I feel wanted, I feel desired


I can feel my soul on fire




***




I feel loved


I feel loved









Breathe




author: Martin Gore




I heard a rumour


They travel far


You know what it's like


The way people are


They talk and they talk


Though they don't understand


They'll whisper and whisper


And lie on demand


Please tell me now


I want to know


I have to hear it from your lips


Say it's not so




***




I heard it on Monday


And I laughed a while


I heard it on Tuesday


I managed to smile


I heard it on Wednesday


My patience was tried


I heard it on Thursday


And I hurt inside


I want to know


The depths of your mind


Tell me this whole thing is madness


And we're doing fine


Put your little hand in mine


And believe in love


Put your head on my chest


And breathe love


Breathe love


Breathe love


Breathe love




***




I heard it from Peter


Who heard it from Paul


Who heard it from someone


I don't know at all


I heard it from Mary


Who heard it from Ruth


Who swore on the bible


She's telling the truth


I heard it from Simon


Who heard it from James


Confirming with Sarah


That I was to blame


I heard it from Joseph


Who heard it from John


Who said with conviction


That all hope was gone


So I need to know


Your alibis


I need to hear that you love me


Before you say goodbye


Before you say goodbye


Before you say goodbye


Before you say goodbye

I Am You




author: Martin Gore




You have bound my heart with subtle chains


So much pleasure that it feels like pain


So entwined now that we can't shake free


I am you and you are me




***




No escaping from the mess we're in


So much pleasure that it must be sin


I must live with this reality


I am yours eternally




***




There's no turning back


We're in this trap


No denying the facts


No, no, no


No excuses to give


I'm the one you're with


We've no alternative


No, no, no




***




Dark obsession in the name of love


This addiction that we're both part of


Leads us deeper into mystery


Keeps us craving endlessly




***




Strange compulsions that I can't control


Pure possession of my heart and soul


I must live with this reality




***




I am you and you are me


I am you and you are me


I am you and you are me


I am you and you are me




***




There's no turning back


We're in this trap


No denying the facts


No, no, no


No excuses to give


I'm the one you're with


We've no alternative


No, no, no









Goodnight Lovers




author: Martin Gore




Here, somewhere in the heart of me


There is still a part of me


That cares




***




And I'll, I'll still take the best you've got


Even though I'm sure it's not


The best for me




***




When you're born a lover


You're born to suffer


Like all soul sisters


And soul brothers




***




I, I can see the danger signs


They only help to underline


Your beauty




***




I'm not looking for an easy ride


True happiness cannot be tried


So easily




***




When you're born a lover


You're born to suffer


Like all soul sisters


And soul brothers




***




Like all soul sisters


And soul brothers




***




You can take your time


I'll be waiting in line


You don't even have to give me


The time of day




***




When you're born a lover


You're born to suffer


Like all soul sisters


And soul brothers




***




Like all soul sisters


And soul brothers

A fire


Inside




***




It was just a dreaming
