Get The Balance Right




author: Martin Gore




There's more besides


Joyrides


The little house in the countryside


Understand


Learn to demand


Compromise


And sometimes lie




***




Get the balance right


Get the balance right




***




Be responsible


Respectable


Stable but gullible


Concerned and caring


Help the helpless


But always remain


Ultimately selfish




***




When you think you've got a hold of it all


You haven't got a hold at all


When you reach the top


Get ready to drop


Prepare yourself for the fall


You're gonna fall


It's almost predictable





***




Almost





***




Don't turn this way


Don't turn that way


Straight down the middle until next Thursday


First to the left


Then back to the right


Twist and turn 'til you've got it right









The Great Outdoors





single: "Get The Balance Right" / author: Martin Gore

Shake The Disease




compilation: "The Singles 81>85" 1985 / author: Martin Gore




I'm not going down on my knees


Begging you to adore me


Can't you see it's misery


And torture for me


When I'm misunderstood


Try as hard as you can


I've tried as hard as I could


To make you see


How important it is for me




***




Here is a plea


From my heart to you


Nobody knows me


As well as you do


You know how hard it is for me


To shake the disease


That takes hold of my tongue


In situations like these




***




Understand me




***




Some people have to be


Permanently together


Lovers devoted


To each other forever


Now I've got things to do


And I've said before


That I know you have too


When I'm not there


In spirit I'll be there









It's Called A Heart




compilation: "The Singles 81>85" 1985 / author: Martin Gore




There's something beating here inside my body


And it's called a heart


You know how easy it is


To tear it apart


If I lend it to you


Will you keep it safe for me


I'll lend it to you


If you treat it tenderly


There's something beating here inside my body


And it's called a heart




***




There's a sun shining in the sky


But that's not the reason why


I'm feeling warm inside


The answer isn't classified, it's my heart


From the moment I started


I tried to be goodhearted


Yes I tried my best


And more or less


I spoke from my heart




***




There's a lot to be learnt


And you learn when you heart gets burnt




***




Hearts could never be owned


Hearts only come on loan


If I want it back


I will take it back, I'll take my heart


But I will try my best and more or less


I will speak from my heart


Yes I will speak from my heart


Speak from my heart










Depeche Mode



Flexible




single: "Shake The Disease" / author: Martin Gore




Fame


Can have strange effects


Money


Can have strange effects




***




I ask myself


Is it a sin


To be flexible


When the boat comes in




***




Open the window and out go ideals




***




Drink


Can alter you


Girls


Can have strange effects, too




***




We all know boats don't last


We all know cars are fast










Depeche Mode



Only When I Lose Myself




compilation: "The Singles 86>98" 1998 / author: Martin Gore




It's only when I lose myself in someone else


That I find myself


I find myself




***




Something beautiful is happening inside for me


Something sensual, it's full of fire and mystery


I feel hypnotised


I feel paralysed


I have found heaven




***




There's a thousand reasons


Why I shouldn't spend my time with you


For every reason not to be here


I can think of two


To keep me hanging on


Feeling nothing's wrong


Inside your heaven




***




It's only when I lose myself in someone else


That I find myself


I find myself




***




I can feel the emptiness inside me


Fade and disappear


There's a feeling of contentment


Now that you are here


I feel satisfied


I belong inside


Your velvet heaven





***




Did I need to sell my soul for pleasure like this


Did I have to lose control to treasure your kiss


Did I need to place my heart in the palm of your hand


Before I could even start to understand




***




It's only when I lose myself in someone else


That I find myself


I find myself










Depeche Mode



Surrender




single: "Only When I Lose Myself" / author: Martin Gore




Laying on your holy bed


By the hallowed door


Feeling like an infidel


Not worthy of your call


Tempted by your innocence


Beckoned to my fate


I won't face the consequence


I wouldn't hesitate




***




I'm a man of flesh and bone


Rapture


Rushing through my veins


Passion


Flaming


In my heart


Heavenly surrender once again


Yeah




***




Shackled like an animal


Chained to my desires


Just another sacrifice


To love's eternal fight


Tame me with your tenderness


And break my brittle heart


Easily and elegantly


Tear my world apart




***




I'm a man of flesh and bone


Rapture


Rushing through my veins


Passion


Flaming


In my heart


Heavenly surrender once again


Yeah




***




We're living in a world full of illusion


Everything is so unreal


My mind is in a state of confusion


But I can't deny the way I feel




***




I'm a man of flesh and bone


Rapture


Rushing through my veins


Yeah

Martyr




compilation: "The Best Of Volume 1" 2007 / author: Martin Gore




I've been a martyr for love


And I will die in the flames


As I draw my last breath


As I'm closing on death


I will call out your name




***




I've been a martyr for love


Nailed up on the cross


While you're having your fun


As the damage is done


I'm assessing the cost




***




I knew what I was letting myself in for


I knew that I could never even the score




***




I've been a martyr for love


I need to be by your side


I have knelt at your feet


I have felt your deceit


Couldn't leave if I tried




***




I've been a martyr for love


Tortured every hour


From the day I was born


I've been moved like a pawn


By the greatest of powers




***




I knew that I would have to suffer in vain


Aware that I would never outgrow the pain





***




I've been a martyr for love...
