Depeche Mode









In Chains


author: Martin Gore


The way you move

Has got me yearning

The way you move

Has left me burning

I know you know what you're doing to me

I know my hands will never be free

I know what it's like to be

In chains


***


The way you move

Is meant to haunt me

The way you move

To tempt and taunt me

I know you knew on the day you were born

I know somehow I should have been warned

I know I walk every midnight till dawn

In chains


***


In chains, I'm in chains

In chains, I'm in chains


***


You've got me dying for you

It's you that I'm living through

You've got me praying to you

Saying to you

Anything you want me to

You've got me reaching for you

My soul's beseeching me to

You've got me singing to you

Bringing to you

Anything you ask me to


***


The way you move

Is mesmerising

The way you move

Is hypnotising

I know I crumble when you are around

Stutter, mumble, a pitiful sound

Stagger, stumble, shackled and bound

In chains


***


In chains, I'm in chains

In chains, I'm in chains


***


You've got me dying for you

It's you that I'm living through

You've got me praying to you

Saying to you

Anything you want me to

You've got me reaching for you

My soul's beseeching me too

You've got me singing to you

Bringing to you

Anything you ask me to


***


I'm in chains


***


In chains, I'm in chains

In chains, I'm in chains

In chains, I'm in chains







Hole To Feed


author: Dave Gahan, Christian Eigner, Andrew Phillpott


We are here

We can love

We share something

I'm sure that you mean the world to me


***


Your name was the one

That was always chosen

Your words and their kindness

Have set me free


***


Shame has a hold

That's kept us frozen

You opened my eyes to a world

That I could believe


***


Words can leave you

Broken inside

You'll have to decide

I'm hanging on to my pride


***


We are here

We can love

We share something

I'm sure that you mean the world to me

When you get what you need

There's no way of knowing

What you'll have

Is another hole to feed


***


The games that were played

Have left us hoping

The gift that we have - the life

That we breathe


***


This world can leave you

Broken inside

With nowhere to hide

I'm hanging on to my pride


***


We are here

We've been chosen

We've been blessed with a place

We need to find and then open


***


We are here

We can love

We share something

I'm sure that you mean the world to me

When you get what you need

There's no way of knowing

What you'll have

Is another hole to feed







Wrong


author: Martin Gore


Wrong

Wrong


***


Wrong


***


Wrong


***


I was born with the wrong sign

In the wrong house

With the wrong ascendancy

I took the wrong road

That led to

The wrong tendencies

I was in the wrong place

At the wrong time

For the wrong reason

And the wrong rhyme

On the wrong day

Of the wrong week

Used the wrong method

With the wrong technique

Wrong


***


Wrong


***


There's something wrong with me chemically

Something wrong with me inherently

The wrong mix

In the wrong genes

I reached the wrong ends

By the wrong means

It was the wrong plan

In the wrong hands

The wrong theory

For the wrong man

The wrong eyes

On the wrong prize

The wrong questions

With the wrong replies


***


Wrong


***


Wrong


***


I was marching to the wrong drum

With the wrong scum

Pissing out the wrong energy

Using all the wrong lines

And the wrong signs

With the wrong intensity

I was on the wrong page

Of the wrong book

With the wrong rendition

Of the wrong look

With the wrong moon

Every wrong night

With the wrong tune playing

Till it sounded right, yeah


***


Wrong


***


Wrong


***


I was born with the wrong sign

In the wrong house

With the wrong ascendancy

I took the wrong road

That led to

The wrong tendencies

I was in the wrong place

At the wrong time

For the wrong reason

And the wrong rhyme

On the wrong day

Of the wrong week

Used the wrong method

With the wrong technique


***

Too long






Fragile Tension


author: Martin Gore


There's a fragile tension

That's keeping us going

It may not last forever

But oh when it's flowing


***


There's something magical in the air

Something so tragic we have to care


***


There's a strange obsession

That's drawing us nearer

We don't understand it

It never gets clearer


***


There's something mystical in our genes

So simplistic it kicks and screams


***


Oh when we're teetering

On the edge of collapse

Nothing can keep us down


***


There's a dizzying feeling

That's keeping us flying

Through glittering galas

Without even trying


***


There's something radical in our hands

Nothing logical to our plans







Little Soul


author: Martin Gore


My little light

Is going to shine

Shine out so bright

And illuminate your mind

My little soul will leave a footprint


***


This little voice

Is going to sing

I have no choice

It will infinitely ring

My little soul will leave a footprint


***


I'm channelling the universe

That's focusing itself

Inside of me

A singularity


***


My little words

Are going to sting

Haven't you heard

The pain and joy they bring

My little soul will leave a footprint


***


I'm channelling the universe

That's focusing itself

Inside of me

A singularity


***


Your little eyes

They're going to see

I can't disguise

The beauty inside me

My little soul will leave a footprint







In Sympathy


author: Martin Gore


They're almost falling over you

Why don't they call a truce

Whatever they are trying to do

It's of little use


***


They're drowning you in compliments

Trying to furnish proof

And though they speak with eloquence

There is little truth


***


You're bright, you're strong

You know your right from wrong

At least to some degree

You're wise, you're tough

You've heard their lies enough

You smile in sympathy


***


I'm watching your serenity

The way your soul transcends

Their tedious obscenities

Your patience never ends


***


And as the night begins to fade

You're heading for the door

Followed by a sad parade

You're on your own once more


***


You're bright, you're strong

You know your right from wrong

At least to some degree

You're wise, you're tough

You've heard their lies enough

You smile in sympathy


***


You're bright, you're strong

You know your right from wrong

At least to some degree

You're wise, you're tough

You've heard their lies enough

You smile in sympathy







Peace


author: Martin Gore


Peace will come to me

Peace will come to me


***


I'm leaving bitterness

Behind this time

I'm cleaning out my mind

There is no space

For the regrets

I will remember to forget


***


Just look at me

I am walking love incarnate

Look at the frequencies

At which I vibrate

I'm going to light up the world


***


Peace will come to me

Peace will come to me


***


I'm leaving anger in the past

With all the shadows

That it cast

There is a radar in my heart

I should have trusted

From the start


***


Just look at me

I'm a living act of holiness

Giving all the positivity

That I possess

I'm going to light up the world


***


Peace will come to me

Just wait and see

Peace will come to me

It's meant to be

Peace will come to me

Just wait and see

Peace will come to me

It's an inevitability







Come Back


author: Dave Gahan, Christian Eigner, Andrew Phillpott


Come back, come back to me

I'll be waiting, patiently

Come back, come back to me

I'll be waiting here patiently


***


Walking a thin white line between love and hate

Wasting all of my time in another world

In another place

I could use a little company

A little kindness could go a long way


***


Weeks turn into months

Months turn into years

Reaching the same conclusions

Gathering up the fear


***


Come back, come back to me

I'll be waiting, patiently

Come back, come back to me

I'll be waiting here patiently


***


Light will always shine in the heart of you

In truth and in reality

Only blindness can hide it away

I could use a little restraint

A little kindness can go a long way


***


Weeks turn into months

Months turn into years

Reaching the same conclusions

Gathering up the fear

Living the same delusion

Gathering up the fear

Gathering up the fear

Gathering up the fear

Gathering up the fear


***


Come back

Come back

Come back

Come back

Come back

Perfect


author: Martin Gore


On another world by another star

At another place and time

In another state of consciousness

In another state of mind


***


Everything was almost perfect

Everything fell into place

The jury reached a different verdict

Before the judge dismissed the case


***


In a parallel universe

That's happening right now

Things between us must be worse

But it's hard to see just how


***


And everything could have been perfect

Everything in the right place

Then I wouldn't have to play the suspect

Accused, abandoned and disgraced


***


I didn't shoot, I didn't pull the trigger

It wasn't me I'm just a plain and simple singer

I heard the sound, I turned my head around

To watch our love shot down


***


In another lonely universe

We're laying side by side

And no one's hurt and no one's cursed

And no one needs to hide


***


And everything is almost perfect

Everything is almost right

There are never any conflicts

There are never any fights







Miles Away / The Truth Is


author: Dave Gahan, Christian Eigner, Andrew Phillpott


It's one of those conversations we've, we've had them before

The ones that leave you empty and wanting for more

Your eyes they tell me something that I understand

Your eyes they hold the truth and the truth is

You're miles away

You're miles away

You're miles away


***


Excuse me for my hesitation I've, I've met you before

Your face seems so familiar and longing for more

Your eyes they tell me something that I understand

Your eyes they hold the truth and the truth is

You're miles away

You're miles away

You're miles away


***


With all your superstitions and empty lines

I could be just like you

Withdrawn but alive


***


Life it has it's limitations we all have our needs

Love could be the only answer it lies underneath

Your eyes they tell me something that I understand

Your eyes they hold the truth and the truth is


***


You're miles away







Jezebel


author: Martin Gore


They call you Jezebel

Whenever we walk in

You're going straight to hell

For wanton acts of sin

They say

And that I'll have to pay

But I need you

Just this way


***


They call you Jezebel

For what you like to wear

You're morally unwell

They say you'll never care

For me

But what they fail to see

Is that your games

Are the key


***


Open their eyes to the beauty

Open their hearts to the fun

Open their minds to the idea

That you don't own someone


***


They call you Jezebel

Whenever men walk by

They say that they can tell

The longing in your eyes

Is real

And how you really feel

But they can't see

Your appeal


***


Jezebel!







Corrupt


author: Martin Gore


I could corrupt you

In a heartbeat

You think you're so special

Think you're so sweet

What are you trying

Don't even tempt me

Soon you'll be crying

And wishing you'd dreamt me


***


You'll be calling out my name

When you need someone to blame


***


I could corrupt you

It would be easy

Watching you suffer

Girl, it would please me

But I wouldn't touch you

With my little finger

I know it would crush you

My memory would linger


***


You'd be crying out in pain

Begging me to play my games


***


I could corrupt you

It would be ugly

They could sedate you

But what good would drugs be

But I wouldn't touch you

Put my hands on your hips

It would be too much to

Place my lips on your lips


***


You'd be calling out my name

Begging me to play my games

Light


release: Deluxe Box Set Edition / author: Martin Gore


Take my hand

And walk in the light

Understand, there's a fire to ignite

You know we have a responsibility

It's true we've been chosen

And now we have the possibility

Of melting what's frozen


***


Walk with me with the rapture inside

Can't you see it's not our place to decide

You know we have to make a case for love

It's more of a duty

It's clear we have a mission from above

A mission of beauty


***


You know I wouldn't lie to you

What would I achieve by that

It's more than I would try to do

These are the facts


***


Take your place here

With love in your heart

Just embrace what you've known from the start

We are fulfilling our only destiny

The angels have spoken

And all the gods in the universe agree

The spell can't be broken







The Sun And The Moon And The Stars


release: Deluxe Box Set Edition / author: Martin Gore


One subtle look

God help me

Is all it took

To sell me

One single word

Unspoken

Your name unheard

And I'm broken


***


The sun and the moon

and the stars in the sky are laughing

They've seen it all before

For the wind in the trees

and the waves on the seas

It's the same thing

They can't take any more


***


One gentle touch

and I'm helpless

It's all too much

For my senses

One simple prayer

Denied me

When you're not there

Beside me


***


The sun and the moon

and the stars in the sky are laughing

They've seen it all before

For the wind in the trees

And the waves on the seas

It's the same thing

They can't take any more







Ghost


release: Deluxe Box Set Edition / author: Martin Gore


I'm the ghost in your house

Calling your name

My memory lingers

You'll never be the same

I'm the hole in your heart

I'm the stain in your bed

The phantom in your fingers

The voices in your head


***


One touch is all it took

To draw you in

To leave you hooked

One kiss, you paid the price

You had a taste

Of paradise


***


Now you're running in circles

Chasing imaginary footsteps

Reaching for shadows

In the bed where I once slept


***


I'm the ghost in your house

Calling your name

My memory lingers

You'll never be the same

I'm the hole in your heart

I'm the stain in your bed

The phantom in your fingers

The voices in your head


***


One thought is all it takes

You lose control

You make mistakes

This pain will never leave

Until I die

You'll always grieve


***


Now you're falling to pieces

Seeing my face wherever you go

Talking to strangers

From a place they'll never know

Life will surely be the one to tell

Listen to what she's trying to tell you

She could be the one who's going to save you

It's nothing to feel ashamed about

Nothing I can complain about
