My Joy









I Feel You




author: Martin Gore




I feel you


Your sun it shines


I feel you


Within my mind


You take me there


You take me where


The kingdom comes


You take me to


And lead me through Babylon




***




This is the morning of our love


It's just the dawning of our love


I feel you


Your heart it sings


I feel you


The joy it brings


Where heaven waits


Those golden gates


And back again


You take me to


And lead me through oblivion




***




This is the morning of our love


It's just the dawning of our love




***




I feel you


Your precious soul


And I am whole


I feel you


Your rising sun


My kingdom comes




***




I feel you


Each move you make


I feel you


Each breath you take


Where angels sing


And spread their wings


My love's on high


You take me home


To glory's throne


By and by




***




This is the morning of our love


It's just the dawning of our love









Walking In My Shoes




author: Martin Gore




I would tell you about the things they put me through


The pain I've been subjected to


But the Lord himself would blush


The countless feasts laid at my feet


Forbidden fruits for me to eat


But I think your pulse would start to rush




***




Now I'm not looking for absolution


Forgiveness for the things I do


But before you come to any conclusions


Try walking in my shoes


Try walking in my shoes




***




You'll stumble in my footsteps


Keep the same appointments I kept


If you try walking in my shoes


If you try walking in my shoes




***




Morality would frown upon


Decency look down upon


The scapegoat fate's made of me


But I promise now, my judge and jurors


My intentions couldn't have been purer


My case is easy to see




***




I'm not looking for a clearer conscience


Peace of mind after what I've been through


And before we talk of any repentance


Try walking in my shoes


Try walking in my shoes




***




You'll stumble in my footsteps


Keep the same appointments I kept


If you try walking in my shoes


If you try walking in my shoes


Try walking in my shoes




***




Now I'm not looking for absolution


Forgiveness for the things I do


But before you come to any conclusions


Try walking in my shoes


Try walking in my shoes




***




You'll stumble in my footsteps


Keep the same appointments I kept


If you try walking in my shoes


You'll stumble in my footsteps


Keep the same appointments I kept


If you try walking in my shoes


Try walking in my shoes


If you try walking in my shoes


Try walking in my shoes









Condemnation




author: Martin Gore




Condemnation


Tried


Here on the stand


With the book in my hand


And truth on my side




***




Accusations


Lies


Hand me my sentence


I'll show no repentance


I'll suffer with pride




***




If for honesty


You want apologies


I don't sympathize


If for kindness


You substitute blindness


Please open your eyes




***




Condemnation


Why


Because my duty


Was always to beauty


And that was my crime




***




Feel elation


High


To know I can trust this


Fix of injustice


Time after time




***




If you see purity


As immaturity


Well it's no surprise


If for kindness


You substitute blindness


Please open your eyes









Mercy In You




author: Martin Gore




You know what I need


When my heart bleeds


I suffer from greed


A longing to feed


On the mercy in you




***




I can't conceal


The way I'm healed


The pleasure I feel


When I have to deal


With the mercy in you




***




I would do it all again


Lose my way and fall again


Just so I could call again


On the mercy in you




***




When here in my mind


I feel inclined


To wrongly treat you unkind


I have faith I will find


The mercy in you




***




I would lose my way again


Be led hopelessly astray again


Just so I could pray again


For the mercy in you




***




When here in my mind


I have been blind


Emotionally behind


I have faith I will find


The mercy in you









Judas




author: Martin Gore




Is simplicity best


Or simply the easiest


The narrowest path


Is always the holiest


So walk on barefoot for me


Suffer some misery


If you want my love


If you want my love




***




Man will survive


The harshest conditions


And stay alive


Through difficult decisions


So make up your mind for me


Walk the line for me


If you want my love


If you want my love




***




Idle talk


And hollow promises


Cheating Judases


Doubting Thomases


Don't just stand there and shout it


Do something about it




***




You can fulfill


Your wildest ambitions


And I'm sure you will


Lose your inhibitions


So open yourself for me


Risk your health for me


If you want my love


If you want my love


If you want my love


If you want my love









In Your Room




author: Martin Gore




In your room


Where time stands still


Or moves at your will


Will you let the morning come soon


Or will you leave me lying here


In your favourite darkness


Your favourite half-light


Your favourite consciousness


Your favourite slave




***




In your room


Where souls disappear


Only you exist here


Will you lead me to your armchair


Or leave me lying here


Your favourite innocence


Your favourite prize


Your favourite smile


Your favourite slave




***




I'm hanging on your words


Living on your breath


Feeling with your skin


Will I always be here




***




In your room


Your burning eyes


Cause flames to arise


Will you let the fire die down soon


Or will I always be here


Your favourite passion


Your favourite game


Your favourite mirror


Your favourite slave




***




I'm hanging on your words


Living on your breath


Feeling with your skin


Will I always be here




***




Will I always be here









Get Right With Me




author: Martin Gore




I will have faith in man


That is hard to understand


Show some humility


You have the ability


Get right with me




***




Friends, if you've lost your way


You will find it again some day


Come down from your pedestals


And open your mouths that's all


Get right with me




***




Life is such a short thing


That I cannot comprehend


But if this life were a bought thing


There are ways I know we'd mend




***




People, take my advice


Already told you once, once or twice


Don't waste your energy


Making apologies


Get right with me









Interlude





author: Martin Gore




Instrumental









Rush




author: Martin Gore




Walk with me


Open your sensitive mouth


And talk to me


Hold out your delicate hands


And feel me


Couldn't make any plans


To conceal me




***




Open your sensitive mouth


Hold out your delicate hands


With such a sensitive mouth


I'm easy to see through


When I come up


When I rush


I rush for you




***




Cry for you


Seen the tears


Roll down from my eyes for you


Heard my truth


Distorted to lies for you


Watched my love


Becoming a prize for you




***




Seen the tears in my eyes


Heard my truth turn to lies


Seen the tears in my eyes


I'm not proud of what I do


When I come up


When I rush


I rush for you




***




I come up to meet you


Up there somewhere


When I rush to greet you


My soul is bared




***




Gave more for you


Dropped my crutches


And crawled on the floor for you


Went looking behind every door for you


And because of the things


That I saw for you


I spiritually grew


When I come up


When I rush


I rush for you









One Caress




author: Martin Gore




Well I'm down on my knees again


And I pray to the only one


Who has the strength


To bear the pain


To forgive all the things that I've done




***




Oh girl


Lead me into your darkness


When this world is trying it's hardest


To leave me unimpressed


Just one caress


From you and I'm blessed




***




When you think you've tried every road


Every avenue


Take one more look


At what you found old


And in it you'll find something new




***




I'm shying from the light


I always loved the night


And now you offer me eternal darkness




***




I have to believe that sin


Can make a better man


It's the mood that I am in


That's left us back where we began









Higher Love




author: Martin Gore




I can taste more than feel


This burning inside is so real


I can almost lay my hands upon


The warm glow that lingers on




***




Moved, lifted higher


Moved, my soul's on fire


Moved, by a higher love




***




I surrender all control


To the desire that consumes me whole




***




And leads me by the hand to infinity


That lies in wait at the heart of me




***




Moved, lifted higher


Moved, my soul's on fire


Moved, by a higher love




***




Heaven bound on the wings of love


There's so much that you can rise above




***




Moved, lifted higher


Moved, moved, by a higher love


By a higher love




***




I surrender heart and soul


Sacrificed to a higher goal




***




Moved, moved by a higher love


By a higher love

Death's Door




single: "Condemnation" / author: Martin Gore (1991)




Well I'm knocking on Death's door


Will I take my rest, among the blessed


Mother are you waiting


Father are you pacing


I'm coming home




***




I'm knocking on Death's door


Will I take my rest, in my Sunday best


Mother are you anxious


Father are you gracious


I'm coming home




***




I've been away too long


For so long you've been strong


I've been away too long


I know that it was wrong


But I'm coming home




***




Well I'm knocking on Death's door


Will I take my rest, have I passed the test


Mother are you praying


Father I am saying


I'm coming home

My Joy




single: "Walking in My Shoes" / author: Martin Gore (1992)




My joy


The air that I breathe


My joy


In God I believe


My joy


You move me




***




My joy


The blood in my veins


My joy


Flows in your name


My joy


You move me




***




I'm not a mountain, no


You move me




***




My joy


Heavenly bliss


My joy


The pleasures I've missed


My joy


You move me




***




I'm not a mountain, no


You move me
