  • Jules from OregonThis is my favorite DM song and I have many! The relief and gratitude that he expresses to find his way back from addiction is palpable. So underrated.
  • Waseem Afzal from IslamabadA song from the grave; sheets clinging to the body!
  • Chai from Los Angeles, Cathere 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.
  • Miras from Astana, KazakhstanWhat does the bald person in black in this music video symolize? God? Life? Death?
  • David from GosportThis 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.
