One caress

Depeche Mode is one of my favorite bands. I heard from them for th first time in the 80’s, that great song People are people, and since then I have followed their career. I have found many artworks related with Depeche Mode, most of all portraits of the band members, but also images inspired in songs. It´s just the matter of this post, an image from a song. The artist, Pirifool.

One caress is a quite romantic song that Martin Gore plays alone, he has composed both music and lyrics and sings it with extreme tenderness.

I want to substitute my words today by the lyrics and the videoclip of the song. They can say much more than my words. Enjoy!

Well I’m down on my knees again
And I pray to the only one
Who has the strength
To bear the pain
To forgive all the things that I’ve done

Oh Girl
Lead me into your darkness
When this world is trying it’s hardest
To leave me unimpressed
Just one caress
From you and I’m blessed

When you think you’ve tried every road
Every avenue
Take one more look
At what you found old
And in it you’ll find something new

I’m shying from the light
I always loved the night
And now you offer me eternal darkness

I have to believe that sin
Can make a better man
It’s the mood that I am in
That left us back where we began
