In Chains

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 I 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

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 too
You've got me reaching for you
My soul's beseeching 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 scrumble when you are around
Stutter, mumble a pitiful sound
Stagger, stumble, shocked and bound
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 too
You've got me reaching for you
My soul's beseeching to you
Bringing to you
Anything you ask me to

I'm in chains

In chains

Depeche Mode 2009

Hole To Feed

We are here
We can love
We share something
Iím 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
Youíll have to decide
Iím hanging on to my pride

We are here
We can love
We share something
Iím 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 choosen
We've been blessed with a place
We need to find and then open

We are here
we can love
We share something
Iím 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

Depeche Mode 2009

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

Thereís 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
With 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 played
Till it sounded right, yeah
Wrong
Wrong
Too long

Wrong!

Depeche Mode 2009

Fragile Tension

There's a fragile tension
Thatís keeping us going
It may not last forever
But oh when it's flowing
Thereís something magical in the air
Somethingís so tragic we have to care

Thereís a strange obsession
Itís drawing us nearer
We donít understand it
It never gets clearer
There's something mystical in our genes
So simplistic it kicks and screams

Oh when we're testering
On the edge of collapse
Nothing can keep us down

Thereís a dizzying felling
Thatís keeping us flying
Throung glittering gales
Without even trying
Thereís something radical in our hands
Nothing logical to our plans

Depeche Mode 2009

Little Soul

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

Iím channeling the universe
That's focusing itself
Inside of me
A singularity

My little words
Are going to sting
Havenít you heard
The pain and joy they bring
My little soul will leave a footprint

Iím channeling the universe
That's focusing itself
Inside of me
A singularity

Your little eyes
Theyíre going to see
I canít disguise
The beauty inside me

My little soul will leave a footprint

Depeche Mode 2009

In Sympathy

Theyíre almost falling over you
Why donít they call the truce
Whatever they are trying to do
Itís of little use

Theyíre drowning you in compliments
Trying to furnish proof
And though they speak with eloquence
There is little truth

Youíre bright, youíre strong
You know your right from wrong
At least to some degree
Youíre wise, youíre tough
Youíve heard their lies enough
You smile in sympathy

Iím watching your serenity
The way youíre so transcends
Their tedious obscenities
Your patience never ends

And as the night begins to fade
Youíre heading for the door
And followed by a sad parade
Youíre on your own once more

Youíre bright, youíre strong
You know your right from wrong
At least to some degree
Youíre wise, youíre tough
Youíve heard their lies enough
You smile in sympathy

Depeche Mode 2009

Peace

Peace will come to me
Peace will come to me

Iím leaving bitterness
Behind this time
Iím cleaning up 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
Iím going to light up the world

Peace will come to me
Peace will come to me

Iím leaving anger in the past
With all the shadows
That it cast
There is radar in my heart
I should have trusted
From the start

Just look at me
I am a living act of holiness
Giving all the positivity
That I possess
Iím going to light up the world

Peace will come to me
Just wait and see
Peace will come to me
Itís meant to be
Peace will come to me
Just wait and see
Peace will come to me
Itís inevitability

Depeche Mode 2009

Come Back

Come back, come back to me
Iíll be waiting, patiently
Come back, come back to me
Iíll 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
Iíll be waiting patiently
Come back, come back to me
Iíll 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

Come back

Depeche Mode 2009

Perfect

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
Thatís happening right now
Things between us must be worse
But itís hard to see just how

And everything could have been perfect
Everything in the right place
Then I wouldnít have to play the suspect
Accused, abandoned and disgraced

I didnít choot, I didnít pull the trigger
It wasnít me, Iím 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 noone's hurt and no one's cursed

And everything is almost perfect
Everything is almost right
There are never any conflicts
There are never any fights

Depeche Mode 2009

Miles Away - The Truth Is

Itís one of those conversations weíve, weíve 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
Youíre miles away

Excuse me for my hesitation I've, I've met you before
Your face seems so familiar and belonging for more
Your eyes they tell me something that I understand
Your eyes they hold the truth and a truth is
Youíre miles away

With all your superstitious and empty lines
I could be just like you
Withdrawn but alive
Life it has itís limitations we all have our needs
Love to 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
Youíre miles away

Depeche Mode 2009

Jezebel

They call you Jezebel
Whenever we walk in
Youíre going straight to hell
For wanton acts of sin
They say
And that Iíll have to pay
But I need you
Just this way

They call you Jezebel
For what you like to wear
Youíre morally unwell
They say you never care
For me
But what the 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 donít 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 canít see
Your appeal

Jezebel

Depeche Mode 2009

Corrupt

I could corrupt you
In a heartbeat
You think you're so special
Think your so sweet
What are you trying
Donít even tempt me
Soon youíll be crying
And wishing you dreamt me

Youíll be calling out my name
When you need someone to blame

I can 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 will crush you
My memory would linger

Youíd 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
Youíd be calling out my name
Begging me to play my games

Depeche Mode 2009

B-sides and bonus tracks:

Light

Take my hand
And walk in the light
Understand, thereís a fire to ignite
You know we have a responsibility
Itís true weíve been chosen
And now we have the possibility
Of melting whatís frozen

Walk with me with the rapture inside
Canít you see itís not our place to decide
You know we have to make a case for love
Itís more of a duty
Itís clear we have a mission from above
A mission of beauty

You know I wouldnít lie to you
What would I achieve by that
Itís more than I would try to do
These are the facts

Take your place here
With love in your heart
Just embrace what youíve known from the start
We are fulfilling our only destiny
The angels have spoken
And all the gods in the universe agree
The spell canít be broken

The Sun And The Moon And The Stars

One subtle look
God help me
Is all it took
To sell me
One single word
Unspoken
Your name unheard
And Iím broken

The sun and the moon
and the stars in the sky are laughing
Theyíve seen it all before
For the wind in the trees
and the waves on the seas
Itís the same thing
They canít take any more

One gentle touch
and Iím helpless
Itís all too much
For my senses
One simple prayer
Denied me
When your not there
Beside me

The sun and the moon
and the stars in the sky are laughing
Theyíve seen it all before
For the wind in the trees
and the waves on the seas
Itís the same thing
They canít take any more

Ghost

Iím the ghost in your house
Calling your name
My memory lingers
Youíll never be the same
Iím the hole in your heart
Iím 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 youíre running in circles
Chasing imaginary footsteps
Reaching for shadows
In the bed where I once slept

Iím the ghost in your house
Calling your name
My memory lingers
Youíll never be the same
Iím the hole in your heart
Iím 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
Youíll always grieve

And now youíre falling to pieces
Seeing my face wherever you go
Talking to strangers
From a place theyíll never know

Iím the ghost in your house
Calling your name
My memory lingers
Youíll never be the same
Iím the hole in your heart
Iím the stain in your bed
The phantom in your fingers
The voices in your head

Oh Well

Oh, you got a way about you
Oh, I know so much about you, girl
Life wonít be the same without you
Life will surely be the one to tell
Listen to what sheís trying to tell you
She could be the one whoís going to save you

Oh, well
Oh, well

Life wonít be the same without you
Life will surely be the one to tell
Thereís nothing to feel ashamed about
Nothing I can complain about

Oh, well
Oh, well
Oh, well
Oh, well

Listen to what sheís trying to tell you
She could be the one whoís going to save you

Oh, well
Oh, well

Thereís nothing to feel ashamed about
Nothing I can complain about

Oh, well
Oh, well

Oh, you got a way about you
Oh, I know so much about you, girl
Life wonít be the same without you
Life will surely be the one to tell

Oh, well
Oh, well
Oh, well
Oh, well
