water please!!

depeche mode… i first heard of them back in my poly days… i had a senior who was TOTALLY into their music and after a while of hearing him talk about them… i decided to check them out… and to my surprise i really liked their music… the lyrics spoke volumes to me…

in fact for a period where i had a pager, i used a section of one of their songs (can’t rem which one is it at the moment.. “everything counts”?) as filler before the ‘beep’… i bought both the singles compilation albums (81>85, 86>98… they spanned my formative years!) and had them on repeat non-stop…

and i just saw my friend’s facebook where she put ‘somebody’ as one of her fav songs… looking at the lyrics i must say i totally agree with her…

Somebody (Depeche Mode)

I want somebody to share
Share the rest of my life
Share my innermost thoughts
Know my intimate details
Someone who’ll stand by my side
And give me support
And in return
She’ll get my support
She will listen to me
When I want to speak
About the world we live in
And life in general
Though my views may be wrong
They may even be perverted
She’ll hear me out
And won’t easily be converted
To my way of thinking
In fact she’ll often disagree
But at the end of it all
She will understand me

I want somebody who cares
For me passionately
With every thought and
With every breath
Someone who’ll help me see things
In a different light
All the things I detest
I will almost like
I don’t want to be tied
To anyone’s strings
I’m carefully trying to steer clear of
Those things
But when I’m asleep
I want somebody
Who will put their arms around me
And kiss me tenderly
Though things like this
Make me sick
In a case like this
I’ll get away with it
