Depeche Mode









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
