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
