Depeche Mode









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...
