Martin Gore wrote this song as a confession about alcohol addiction. He mentioned the song in several interviews as his personal favorite underrated by others. (thanks, Weller - Basingstoke, England)

there are rumors that this is written about dave gahan for example the lines, "I thank you for bring me here, For showing me home, For singing these tears..."
its perfect because Gore sings them instead of Gahan. It was written around the time Gahan got really sick and the band almost broke up for good.

This has to be my alltime favourite Depeche Mode track. The strings are amazing. Martin Gore is an excellent songwriter. I think what makes this song special is the production by Tim 'Bomb The Bass' Simenon.
