Depeche Mode









World In My Eyes


author: Martin Gore


Let me take you on a trip

Around the world and back

And you won't have to move

You just sit still


***


Now let your mind do the walking

And let my body do the talking

Let me show you the world in my eyes


***


I'll take you to the highest mountain

To the depths of the deepest sea

And we won't need a map

Believe me


***


Now let my body do the moving

And let my hands do the soothing

Let me show you the world in my eyes


***


That's all there is

Nothing more than you can feel now

That's all there is


***


Let me put you on a ship

On a long, long trip

Your lips close to my lips


***


All the islands in the ocean

All the heaven's in motion

Let me show you the world in my eyes


***


That's all there is

Nothing more than you can touch now

That's all there is


***


Let me show you the world in my eyes







Sweetest Perfection


author: Martin Gore


The sweetest perfection

To call my own

The slightest correction

Couldn't finely hone

The sweetest infection

Of body and mind

Sweetest injection

Of any kind


***


I stop and I stare too much

Afraid that I care too much

And I hardly dare to touch

For fear that the spell may be broken

When I need a drug in me

And it brings out the thug in me

Feel something tugging me

Then I want the real thing not tokens


***


Things you'd expect to be

Having effect on me

Pass undetectedly

But everyone knows what has got me

Takes me completely

Touches me sweetly

Reaches so deeply

I know that nothing can stop me


***


Sweetest perfection

An offer was made

An assorted collection

But I wouldn't trade


***


Takes me complelty

Touches so sweetly

Reaches so deeply

Nothing can stop me







Personal Jesus


author: Martin Gore


Reach out and touch faith


***


Your own personal Jesus

Someone to hear your prayers

Someone who cares

Your own personal Jesus

Someone to hear your prayers

Someone who's there


***


Feeling unknown

And you're all alone

Flesh and bone

By the telephone

Lift up the receiver

I'll make you a believer


***


Take second best

Put me to the test

Things on your chest

You need to confess

I will deliver

You know I'm a forgiver


***


Reach out and touch faith

Reach out and touch faith


***


Your own personal Jesus

Someone to hear your prayers

Someone who cares

Your own personal Jesus

Someone to hear your prayers

Someone who's there


***


Feeling unknown

And you're all alone

Flesh and bone

By the telephone

Lift up the receiver

I'll make you a believer

I will deliver

You know I'm a forgiver


***


Reach out and touch faith


***


Your own personal Jesus


***


Reach out and touch faith







Halo


author: Martin Gore


You wear guilt

Like shackles on your feet

Like a halo in reverse

I can feel

The discomfort in your seat

And in your head it's worse


***


There's a pain

A famine in your heart

An aching to be free

Can't you see

All love's luxuries

Are here for you and me


***


And when our worlds

They fall apart

When the walls come tumbling in

Though we may deserve it

It will be worth it


***


Bring your chains

Your lips of tragedy

And fall into my arms


***


And when our worlds

They fall apart

When the walls come tumbling in

Though we may deserve it

It will be worth it







Waiting For The Night


author: Martin Gore


According to the band's website, the original title for "Waiting for the Night" was "Waiting for the Night to Fall" and the rest of the title was omitted due to a printing error.


I'm waiting for the night to fall

I know that it will save us all

When everything's dark

Keeps us from the stark reality

I'm waiting for the night to fall

When everything is bearable

And there in the still

All that you feel

Is tranquility


***


There is a star in the sky

Guiding my way with its light

And in the glow of the moon

Know my deliverance will come soon


***


There is a sound in the calm

Someone is coming to harm

I press my hands to my ears

It's easier here just to forget fear


***


And when I squinted

The world seemed rose-tinted

And angels appeared to descend

To my surprise

With half-closed eyes

Things looked even better

Than when they were opened


***


Been waiting for the night to fall

Now everything is bearable

And here in the still

All that you hear

Is tranquility







Enjoy The Silence


author: Martin Gore


Words like violence

Break the silence

Come crashing in

Into my little world

Painful to me

Pierce right through me

Can't you understand

Oh my little girl


***


All I ever wanted

All I ever needed

Is here in my arms

Words are very unnecessary

They can only do harm


***


Vows are spoken

To be broken

Feelings are intense

Words are trivial

Pleasures remain

So does the pain

Words are meaningless

And forgettable


***


All I ever wanted

All I ever needed

Is here in my arms

Words are very unnecessary

They can only do harm







Interlude "Crucified"

Policy Of Truth


author: Martin Gore


You had something to hide

Should have hidden it, shouldn't you

Now you're not satisfied

With what you're being put through

It's just time to pay the price

For not listening to advice

And deciding in your youth

On the policy of truth


***


Things could be so different now

It used to be so civilised

You will always wonder how

It could have been if you'd only lied

It's too late to change events

It's time to face the consequence

For delivering the proof

In the policy of truth


***


Never again is what you swore

The time before

Never again is what you swore

The time before


***


Now you're standing there tongue tied

You'd better learn your lesson well

Hide what you have to hide

And tell what you have to tell

You'll see your problems multiplied

If you continually decide

To faithfully pursue

The policy of truth


***


Never again is what you swore

The time before

Never again is what you swore

The time before







Blue Dress


author: Martin Gore


Put it on

And don't say a word

Put it on

The one that I prefer

Put it on

And stand before my eyes

Put it on

Please don't question why

Can you believe


***


Something so simple

Something so trivial

Makes me a happy man

Can't you understand

Say you believe

Just how easy

It is to please me


***


Because when you learn

You'll know what makes the world turn


***


Put it on

I can feel so much

Put it on

I don't need to touch

Put it on

Here before my eyes

Put it on

Because you realise

And you believe


***


Something so worthless

Serves a purpose

It makes me a happy man

Can't you understand

Say you believe

Just how easy

It is to please me


***


Because when you learn

You'll know what makes the world turn

Clean


author: Martin Gore


Clean

The cleanest I've been

An end to the tears

And the in-between years

And the troubles I've seen


***


Now that I'm clean

You know what I mean

I've broken my fall

Put an end to it all

I've changed my routine

Now I'm clean


***


I don't understand

What destiny's planned

I'm starting to grasp

What is in my own hands

I don't claim to know

Where my holiness goes

I just know that I like

What is starting to show


***


Sometimes


***


As years go by

All the feelings inside

Twist and they turn

As they ride with the tide

I don't advise

And I don't criticise

I just know what I like

With my own eyes


***


Sometimes


***


Sometimes

Dangerous


single: "Personal Jesus" / author: Martin Gore


The things you do

Aren't good for my health

The moves you make

You make for yourself

The means you use

Aren't meant to confuse

Although they do

They're the ones that I would choose


***


And I wouldn't want it any other way

You wouldn't let me anyway


***


Dangerous

The way you leave me wanting more

Dangerous

That's what I want you for

Dangerous

When I am in your arms

Dangerous

Know I will come to harm


***


The lies you tell

Aren't meant to deceive

They're not there

For me to believe

I've heard

Your vicious words

You know by now

It takes a lot to see me hurt


***


And I couldn't take it any other way

But there's a price I have to pay

Happiest Girl


single: "World in My Eyes" / author: Martin Gore


Happiest girl I ever knew

Happiest girl I ever knew


***


Wanted to feel the joy

Flow between our lips

Wanted to feel the joy

Flow between our hips


***


Happiest girl I ever knew

Why do you smile the smile you do


***


Happiest girl I ever knew


***


Wanted to feel the joy

Pass between our eyes

Wanted to feel the joy

Pass between our thighs


***


And I would have to pinch her

Just to see if she was real

Just to watch the smile fade away

And see the pain she'd feel


***


Wanted to feel her joy

Feel it deep within

Wanted to feel her joy

Penetrate my skin


***


Happiest girl I ever knew

Why do you smile the smile you do







Sea of sin


single: "World in My Eyes" / author: Martin Gore


Sea of sin

I'm swimming in

And I'm taking a dive

My mind's in need

So my body feeds

And it keeps me alive

It gets better and better

As it gets wetter and wetter


***


Sea of sin

Know where you've been

But I don't care


***


Sea of sin

Through thick and thin

For better or worse

My mind's in need

So my body feeds

And it quenches my thirst

You look cheaper and cheaper

As we sink deeper and deeper


***


Sea of sin

Know where you've been

'Cause I've been there


***


Here under God's sky

His watchful eye

And all of the lies

My consolation prize


***


Sea of sin

My second skin

My home from home

When I'm in doubt

My hands reach out

And I'm never alone

It gets wetter and wetter

As it gets better and better


***


Sea of sin

Know where you've been

And I'm prepared

Sea of sin

Know where you've been

Yes I'm aware

Sea of sin

Know where you've been

'Cause I've been there

Sea of sin

Know where you've been

And I don't care

Sea of sin

Know where you've been

And I don't care
