Testo della canzone Depeche Mode 1980-81 (Depeche Mode), tratta dall'album Speak & Spell

Depeche Mode 1980-81 - Depeche Mode

NEW LIFE
I stand still stepping on the shady streets
And I watch that man to a stranger
You think you only know me when you turn on the light
Now the room is lit with danger

Complicating, circulating
New life, new life
Operating, generating
New life, new life

Transition to another place
So the time will pass more slowly
Features fuse and your shadow's red
Like a film I've seen now show me

Complicating, circulating
New life, new life
Operating, generating
New life, new life

Your face is hidden and we're out of sight
And the road just leads to nowhere
The stranger in the door is the same as before
So the question answer's nowhere

Complicating, circulating
New life, new life
Operating, generating
New life, new life

I stand still stepping on the shady streets
And I watch that man to a stranger
Think you only know me when you turn on the light
Now the room is lit, red danger

Complicating, circulating
New life, new life
Operating, generating
New life, new life

I SOMETIMES WISH I WAS DEAD
New sound all around
You can hear it too
Getting hot, never stop
Just for me and you
Playing on my radio
And saying that you had to go

New day turn away
Wipe away the tear
New night, feel right
Knowing that you're here
Dancing with you all the time,
And don't you think that it's a crime

Back street never meet
Never say goodbye
I know where you go
But I don't know why
You say that it's from above,
And I say this is modern love

PUPPETS
Get the feeling, head is reeling
You think you're in control but you don't know me babe
I can move you, I can soothe you
I can take you places in a different way

And I don't think you understand
What I'm trying to say
I'll be your operator baby
I'm in control

Watch your action, close reaction
And everything you're thinking babe inside your head
Conversation, my creation
Nothing that you do you do unless I said

And you don't know the consequences
Of the things you say
I'll be your operator baby
I'm in control

All the things you tried to do babe
And all the words we've said before
Are only part of what I started baby
And you can't stop me anymore

Get the feeling, head is reeling
You think you're in control but you don't know me babe
I can move you, I can soothe you
I can take you places in a different way

And I don't think you understand
What I'm trying to say
I'll be your operator baby
I'm in control

BOYS SAY GO!
Boys say go
Boys say go
Boys say go
Boys say go

You don't understand
This is a demand
And I think that I have to show you

Try to look inside
Take me for a ride
In the day and the night get to know you

Boys meet boys get together
Boys meet boys it's forever
Don't say no
Boys say go

I can run away
If you never stay
And the rain and the pain and the sorrow

I'm not very sure
When you close the door
If the end is the same as tomorrow

Boys meet boys get together
Boys meet boys it's forever
Don't say no
Boys say go

You don't understand
This is a demand
And I think that I have to show you

Try to look inside
Take me for a ride
In the day and the night get to know you

Boys meet boys get together
Boys meet boys it's forever
Don't say no
Boys say go

NODISCO
I saw you in the picture, I saw you play the part
This ain't nodisco
There's thousand watching you
You take this too far
This ain't nodisco
Sometimes when I wonder if you're taking a chance
This ain't nodisco and you know how to dance

Move me disco
Baby don't you let go
This ain't nodisco

Part one, act one
Everyone pretend
This ain't nodisco
This more a story
And we're reaching the end (the end)
This ain't nodisco
Always makes me happy when you're taking a chance
This ain't nodisco and you know how to dance

Move me disco
Baby don't you let go
This ain't nodisco

I saw you in the picture, I saw you play the part
This ain't nodisco
There's thousand watching you
You take this too far
This ain't nodisco
Sometimes when I wonder if you're taking a chance
This ain't nodisco and you know how to dance

Move me disco
Baby don't you let go
Move me disco
Baby don't you let go
Move me disco
Baby don't you let go
This ain't nodisco

WHAT'S YOUR NAME?
Sometimes watch you walk the street at midnight
Sometimes I can feel you in the air
Looking good, knew you would
All the time I understood

Hey, you're such a pretty boy
Hey, you're such a pretty boy
Hey, you're such a pretty boy
You're so pretty

Everybody seems to look your way now
(Everybody seems to look your way)
Everybody wants to know your name
(Hey, hey, what's your name?)
Feeling right, just tonight
Hear them say you're out of sight

Hey, you're such a pretty boy
Hey, you're such a pretty boy
Hey, you're such a pretty boy
You're so pretty

Hey, you're such a pretty boy
Hey, you're such a pretty boy
Hey, you're such a pretty boy
You're so pretty

All the boys we got to get together
All the boys together we can stand
We can go, never know
All the things we need to show

Hey, you're such a pretty boy
Hey, you're such a pretty boy
Hey, you're such a pretty boy
You're so pretty

Hey, you're such a pretty boy
(You are so pretty)
Hey, you're such a pretty boy
(You are so pretty)
Hey, you're such a pretty boy
You're so pretty
(P R E double T Y)

Hey, you're such a pretty boy
Hey, you're such a pretty boy
Hey, you're such a pretty boy
You're so pretty

PHOTOGRAPHIC
A white house, a white room
The program of today
Lights on, switch on
Your eyes are far away

The map represents you
And the tape is your voice
Follow all along you
Till you recognize the choice

I take pictures
Photographic pictures

Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room

I said I'd write a letter
But I never got the time
And looking to the day
I mesmerize the light

The years I spend just thinking
Of a moment we both knew
A second boss looking into
It seems it can't be true

I take pictures
Photographic pictures
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room

I take pictures
Photographic pictures
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room
Bright light, dark room

TORA! TORA! TORA!
They were raining from the sky
Exploding in my heart
Is this a love in disguise
Or just a form of modern art?

From the skies you could almost hear them cry
Tora! Tora! Tora!
In the town they were going down
Tora! Tora! Tora!

I had a nightmare only yesterday
You played a skeleton
You took my love then died that day
I played an American

From the skies you can almost hear them cry
Tora! Tora! Tora!
In the town they were going down
Tora! Tora! Tora!

I played an American
I played an American
I played an American...

BIG MUFF
(INSTRUMENTAL)

ANY SECOND NOW (VOICES)
She remembered all the shadows and the doubts
The same film

Vivid pictures like a wall that's standing empty
And the night so still

Such a small affair, and we let someone close it
Like the night club door

Here again and when you speak I watch you move away
And seem so sure

She is hoping to forget
And the moment almost slips away

When the colours move apart
And I wonder if you want to stay

And I need to change you
Like the words I'm reading
Don't you understand

This the warning and the message
I remember as you touch my hand

JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH!
When I'm with you baby
I go out of my head
And I just can't get enough
And I just can't get enough
All the things you do to me
And everything you said
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough

We slip and slide as we fall in love
And I just can't seem to get enough of

We walk together
We're walking down the street
And I just can't get enough
And I just can't get enough
Every time I think of you
I know we have to meet
And I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough

It's getting hotter
It's a burning love
And I just can't seem to get enough of

I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough

And when it rains
You're shining down for me
And I just can't get enough
And I just can't get enough
Just like a rainbow
You know you set me free
And I just can't get enough
And I just can't get enough
You're like an angel
And you give me your love
And I just can't seem to get enough of

I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough

ANY SECOND NOW
(INSTRUMENTAL)

DREAMING OF ME
Light switch
Man switch
Film was broken only then
All the night
Fused tomorrow
Dancing with a distant friend

Filming and screening
I picture the scene
Filming and dreaming
Dreaming of me

So we left
Understanding
Cleancut so we're sounding fast
Talked of sad
I talked of war
I laughed and climbed the rising cast

Filming and screening
I picture the scene
Filming and dreaming
Dreaming of me

Quickly I remembered
Fused and saw a face before
Timing reason
Understanding
Like association whore

Filming and screening
I picture the scene
Filming and dreaming
Dreaming of me, yeah

Dreaming of me
Just dreaming of me
It's only me
Just me

ICE MACHINE
Running through my head secretly
The shouts of the boys in the factory
I ring you on the telephone silently
Like blood, like the wine in the darkroom scene

The darkroom scene
Darkroom scene

A letter
Once composed
Seven years long and as tall as a tree
Reading
On the wall
Emissions, efficiency

Efficiency
Efficiency

Resurrect
As a feeling
On my window
Of a past reunion

Resurrect
As a feeling
On my window
Of a past reunion
Vision
Of a picture
Like the city
And the air we breathe

The air we breathe
Air we breathe

She stood beside me once again
I knew her face
We met before in the street
Recalling all the children dancing at our feet

The dancing feet, dancing feet

SHOUT!
She was silent trying to be
Like the girl who acted on the TV
Always knowing when to say
Wishing for a moment so that they could see

Staring in the night
A picture in my room
And I think that she knew her lines

Break away tonight
I wanna hold your hand
We've got to get it right
We've got to understand

Carefully watching waiting as I
Stood upon the back streets and we start to play
I was screaming louder as the
Curtains fall between us in a twisted way

Staring in the night
A picture in my room
And I think that she knew her lines

Break away tonight
I wanna hold your hand
We've got to get it right
We've got to understand

Placing all the questions in the
Minutes of a game we won so long ago
Dangerous and beautiful the
Radio transmission that I have to know

You could never run
You could never stay
And I think you belong to me

Break away tonight
I wanna hold your hand
We've got to get it right
We've got to understand

Break away tonight
I wanna hold your hand
We've got to get it right
We've got to understand

Break away tonight
I wanna hold your hand
We've got to get it right
We've got to understand
