Depeche Mode









New Life


author: Vince Clarke


I stand still stepping on the shady streets

And I watched that man to a stranger

You think you only know me when you turn on the light

Now the room is lit, red danger


***


Complicating, circulating

New life, new life

Operating, generating

New life, new life


***


Transitions to another place

Features fuse and your shadow's red

Like a film I've seen now show me


***


Your face is hidden and were out of sight

And the road just leads to nowhere

The stranger in the door is the same as before

So the question answers nowhere


***


I stand still stepping on the shady streets

And I watched that man to a stranger


***


You think you only know me when you turn on the light

Now the room is lit, red danger







I Sometimes Wish I Were Dead


author: Vince Clarke


New sound all around

You can hear it too

Getting hot, never stop

Just for me and you

Playing on my radio and saying that you had to go


***


New day turn away

Wipe away the tear

New night, feel right

Knowing that you're here

Dancing with you all the time, and don't you think that it's a crime


***


Back street never meet

Never say goodbye

I know where you go

But I don't know why

You say that it's from above, and I say this is modern love







Puppets


author: Vince Clarke


Get that feeling

Head is reeling

You think you're in control

But you don't know me babe

I can move you

I can soothe you

I can take you places in a different way


***


I don't think you understand

What I'm trying to say

I'll be your operator baby

I'm in control


***


Watch your action

Close reaction

And everything you're thinking babe inside your head

Conversation, my creation

Nothing that you do

You do unless I said


***


You don't know the consequences

Of the things you say

I'll be your operator baby

I'm in control


***


All the things you tried to do babe

And all the words we said before

Are only part of what I started baby

And you can't stop me anymore







Boys Say Go!


author: Vince Clarke


You don't understand

This is a demand

And I think that I have to show you

Try to look inside

Take me for a ride

In the day and the night

Get to know you


***


Boys meet boys get together

Boys meet boys live forever

Don't say no

Boys say go


***


I can run away

If you never stay

And the rain and the pain and the sorrow

I'm not very sure

When you close the door

If the end is the same as tomorrow


***


Boys!

Boys!

Boys say go!







Nodisco


author: Vince Clarke


I saw you in the picture

I saw you play the part

This ain't nodisco

There's a thousand watts in you

You take this too far

This ain't nodisco


***


Sometimes when I wonder if you're taking a chance

This ain't nodisco

And you know how to dance


***


Move me disco

Baby don't you let go

This ain't nodisco


***


Part one

Act one

Everyone pretend

This ain't nodisco

This is more a story

And we're reaching the end

This ain't nodisco


***


Always makes me happy when you're taking a chance

This ain't nodisco

And you know how to dance


***


Move me disco

Baby don't you let go

This ain't nodisco







What's Your Name?


author: Vince Clarke


Sometimes watch you walk the street at midnight

Sometimes I can feel you in the air

Looking good

Knew you would

All the time I understood


***


Hey, you're such a pretty boy,

Hey, you're such a pretty boy,

Hey, you're such a pretty boy,

You're so pretty


***


Everybody seems to look your way now

(Everybody seems to look your way)

Everybody wants to know your name

(Hey, hey, what's your name)

Feeling right

Just tonight

Hear them say you're out of sight


***


All the boys we got to get together

All the boys together we can stand

We can go

Never know

All the things we need to show


***


Hey you're such a pretty boy (you're so pretty)

Hey you're such a pretty boy (you're so pretty)

Hey you're such a pretty boy

You're so pretty (p-r-e, double-t-y)







Photographic


author: Vince Clarke


A white house, a white room

The program of today

Lights on, switch on

Your eyes are far away

The map represents you

And the tape is your voice

Follow all along you

Till you recognize the choice


***


I take pictures

Photographic pictures


***


Bright light

Dark room

Bright light

Dark room


***


I said I'd write a letter

But I never got the time

And I'm looking to the day

I mesmerise the light


***


The years I spend just thinking

Of a moment we both knew

A second boss looking into

It seems it can't be true







Tora! Tora! Tora!


author: Martin Gore


They were raining from the sky

Exploding in my heart

Is this a love in disguise

Or just a form of modern art


***


From the skies you could almost hear them cry

Tora Tora Tora

In the town they were going down

Tora Tora Tora


***


I had a nightmare only yesterday

You played a skeleton

You took my love then died that day

I played an American


***


From the skies you can almost hear them cry

Tora! Tora! Tora!

In the town they were going down

Tora! Tora! Tora!


***


I played an American

Any Second Now (Voices)


author: Vince Clarke


She remembered all the shadows and the doubts

The same film

Vivid pictures like a wall that's standing empty

And the night so still

Such a small affair a relapse someone closing

Like the nightclub door

Here again and when you speak I watch you move away

And seem so sure


***


She is hoping to forget and the moment

Almost slips away

When the colours move apart and I wonder

If you want to stay

And I need to change you like the words I'm reading

Don't you understand

This the warning and the message I remember

As you touch my hand







Just Can't Get Enough


author: Vince Clarke


When I'm with you baby

I go out of my head

And I just can't get enough

And I just can't get enough

All the things you do to me

And everything you said

I just can't get enough

I just can't get enough


***


We slip and slide as we fall in love

And I just can't seem to get enough of


***


We walk together

We're walking down the street

And I just can't get enough

And I just can't get enough

Every time I think of you

I know we have to meet

And I just can't get enough

I just can't get enough


***


It's getting hotter

It's a burning love

And I just can't seem to get enough of


***


And when it rains

You're shining down for me

And I just can't get enough

And I just can't get enough

Just like a rainbow

You know you set me free

And I just can't get enough

And I just can't get enough


***


You're like an angel

And you give me your love

And I just can't seem to get enough of

Dreaming Of Me


release: CDStumm5 UK (1988) / author: Vince Clarke


Light switch

Man switch

Film was broken only then

All the night

Fused tomorrow

Dancing with a distant friend


***


Filming and screning

I picture the scene

Filming and dreaming

Dreaming of me


***


So we left

Understanding

Cleancut so we're sounding fast

Talked of sad

I talked of war

I laughed and climbed the rising cast


***


Quickly I remembered

Fused and saw a face before

Timing reason

Understanding

Like association hall







Ice Machine


release: CDStumm5 UK (1988) / author: Vince Clarke


Running through my head secretly

The shouts of the boys in the factory

I ring you on the telephone silently

Like blood, like the wine in the darkroom scene


***


The darkroom scene

Darkroom scene


***


A letter

Once composed

Seven years long and as tall as a tree

Reading

On the wall

Emissions, efficiency


***


Efficiency

Efficiency


***


Resurrect

As a feeling

On my window

Of a past reunion


***


Resurrect

As a feeling

On my window

Of a past reunion

Vision

Of a picture

Like the city

And the air we breathe


***


The air we breathe

Air we breathe


***


She stood beside me once again

I knew her face

We met before in the street

Recalling all the children dancing at our feet


***


The dancing feet, dancing feet







Shout


release: CDStumm5 UK (1988) / author: Vince Clarke


She was silent trying to be

Like the girl who acted on the TV

Always knowing when to say

Wishing for a moment so that they could see


***


Staring in the night

A picture in my room

And I think that she knew her lines


***


Break away tonight

I wanna hold your hand

We've got to get it right

We've got to understand


***


Carefully watching waiting as I

Stood upon the back streets and we start to play

I was screaming louder as the

Curtains fall between us in a twisted way


***


Staring in the night

A picture in my room

And I think that she knew her lines


***


Break away tonight

I wanna hold your hand

We've got to get it right

We've got to understand


***


Placing all the questions in the

Minutes of a game we won so long ago

Dangerous and beautiful the

Radio transmission that I have to know


***


You could never run

You could never stay

And I think you belong to me


***


Break away tonight

I wanna hold your hand

We've got to get it right

We've got to understand
