Never Let Me Down Again


author: Martin Gore


I'm taking a ride

With my best friend

I hope he never lets me down again

He knows where he's taking me

Taking me where I want to be

I'm taking a ride

With my best friend


***


We're flying high

We're watching the world pass us by

Never want to come down

Never want to put my feet back down

On the ground


***


I'm taking a ride

With my best friend

I hope he never lets me down again

Promises me I'm safe as houses

As long as I remember who's wearing the trousers

I hope he never lets me down again


***


Never let me down


***


See the stars, they're shining bright

Everything's alright tonight







The Things You Said


author: Martin Gore


I heard it from my friends

About the things you said

I heard it from my friends

About the things you said

But they know me better than that

They know me better than that

They know my weaknesses

I never tried to hide them

They know my weaknesses

I never denied them


***


I heard it from my friends

About the things you said

I heard it from my friends

About the things you said

How can a view become so twisted

How can a view become so twisted

They know my weaknesses

I never tried to hide them

They know my weaknesses

You tried them


***


I get so carried away

You brought me down to earth

I thought we had something precious

Now I know what it's worth


***


I heard it from my friends

About the things you said

I heard it from my friends

About the things you said

I've never felt so disappointed

Never felt so disappointed

They know my weaknesses

I never tried to hide them

They know my weaknesses

Thought that you liked them


***


They know me better than that







Strangelove


author: Martin Gore


There'll be times

When my crimes

Will seem almost unforgivable

I give in to sin

Because you have to make this life livable

But when you think I've had enough

From your sea of love

I'll take more than another riverful

And I'll make it all worthwhile

I'll make your heart smile


***


Strangelove

Strange highs and strange lows

Strangelove

That's how my love goes

Strangelove

Will you give it to me

Will you take the pain

I will give to you

Again and again

And will you return it


***


There'll be days

When I stray

I may appear to be

Constantly out of reach

I give in to sin

Because I like to practice what I preach

I'm not trying to say

I'll have it all my way

I'm always willing to learn

When you've got something to teach

And I'll make it all worthwhile

I'll make your heart smile


***


Pain will you return it

I'll say it again - pain

Pain will you return it

I won't say it again


***


I give in

Again and again

I give in

Will you give it to be

I give in

I'll say it again

I give in


***


I give in

Again and again

I give in

That's how my love goes

I give in

I'll say it again

I give in







Sacred


author: Martin Gore


Sacred

Holy

To put it in words

To write it down

That is walking on hollowed ground

But it's my duty

I'm a missionary


***


So here is my confesion

It's an obsession

I'm a firm believer

And a warm receiver

And I've made my decision

This is religion

There's no doubt

I'm one of the devout

Trying to sell the story

Of love's eternal glory


***


Spreading the news around the world

Taking the word to boys and girls

I'm a firm believer

And a warm receiver

And I will go down on my knees

When I see beauty

There's no doubt

I'm one of the devout

Trying to sell the story

Of love's eternal glory


***


Sacred

Holy

To put it in words

To write it down

That is walking on hollowed ground






Little 15


author: Martin Gore


Little 15

You help her forget

The world outside

You're not part of it yet

And if you could drive

You could drive her away

To a happier place

To a happier day

That exists in your mind

And in your smile

She could escape there

Just for a while

Little 15


***


Little 15

Why take the smooth with the rough

When things run smooth

It's already more than enough

She knows your mind

Is not yet in league

With the rest of the world

And it's little intrigues

Do you understand

Do you know what she means

As time goes by

And when you've seen what she's seen

You will

Little 15


***


Little 15

Why does she have to defend

Her feelings inside

Why pretend

She's not had a life

A life of near misses

Now all that she wants

Is 3 little wishes

She wants to see with your eyes

She wants to smile with your smile

She wants a nice surprise

Every once in a while

Little 15







Behind The Wheel


author: Martin Gore


My little girl

Drive anywhere

Do what you want

I don't care

Tonight

I'm in the hands of fate

I hand myself

Over on a plate

Now


***


Oh little girl

There are times when I feel

I'd rather not be

The one behind the wheel

Come

Pull my strings

Watch me move

I do anything

Please


***


Sweet little girl

I prefer

You behind the wheel

And me the passenger

Drive

I'm yours to keep

Do what you want

I'm going cheap

Tonight


***


You're behind the wheel tonight







I Want You Now


author: Martin Gore


I want you now

Tomorrow won't do

There's a yearning inside

And it's showing through

Reach out your hands

And accept my love

We've waited for too long

Enough is enough

I want you now


***


My heart is aching

My body is burning

My hands are shaking

My head is turning

You understand

It's so easy to choose

We've got time to kill

We've got nothing to lose

I want you now


***


And I don't mean to sound

Like one of the boys

That's now what I'm trying to do

I don't want to be

Like one of the boys

I just want you now


***


Because I've got a love

A love that won't wait

A love that is growing

And it's getting late

Do you know what it means

To be left this way

When everyone's gone

And the feelings they stay

I want you now







To Have And To Hold


author: Martin Gore


I need to be cleansed

It's time to make amends

For all of the fun

The damage is done

And I feel diseased

I'm down on my knees

And I need forgiveness

Someone to bear witness

To the goodness within

Beneath the sin

Although I may flirt

With all kinds of dirt

To the point of disease

Now I want release

From all this decay

Take it away

And somewhere

There's someone who cares

With a heart of gold

To have and to hold







Nothing


author: Martin Gore


Sitting target

Sitting waiting

Anticipating

Nothing

Nothing


***


Life

Is full of surprises

It advertises

Nothing

Nothing


***


What am I trying to do

What am I trying to say

I'm not trying to tell you anything

You didn't know

When you woke up today


***


Sitting target

Sitting praying

God is saying

Nothing

Nothing


***


Always

Knows the prospects

Learn to expect

Nothing

Nothing

Pleasure, Little Treasure


single: "Never Let Me Down Again" / author: Martin Gore


Everybody's looking for someone to follow

Finding the whole thing hard to swallow

Everybody's looking for a reason to live

If you're looking for a reason I've a reason to give

Pleasure, little treasure


***


Everybody's looking for a new sensation

Everybody's talking about the state of the nation

Everybody's searching for a promised land

Everybody's failing to understand

Pleasure, little treasure


***


Everybody's looking for a reason to live

If you're looking for a reason

I've a reason to give

Pleasure, little treasure


***


Maternity frocks and paternity suits

If that's what you want

They're waiting for you

Everybody needs some reason or other

You'll find a reason when you discover

Pleasure, little treasure


***


Everybody's looking for a reason to live

If you're looking for a reason

I've a reason to give

Pleasure, little treasure

Route 66


single: "Behind The Wheel" / author: Robert William Troup Jr. (1946)


Well if you ever plan to motor west

Travel my way

Take the highway that's the best

Get your kicks on Route 66


***


Well it winds from Chicago

To LA

More than two thousand miles

All the way

Get your kicks on Route 66


***


Well it goes to St. Louis

Down to Missouri

Oklahoma City looks oh so pretty

You'll see Amarillo

Gallup, New Mexico

Flagstaff, Arizona

Don't forget Winona

Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino


***


If you get hip to this kind of tip

And go take that California trip

Get your kicks on Route 66


***


Well it goes to St. Louis
