"Monument" as written by and Martin Lee Gore....
I built a monument
To every word that passed between us
And I built a monument
To stand through history

And I watch the hourglass
The time will pass
You'll rue the day, love, (?)
When you ever strayed so far from me

I built a monument
To make the time more easy passing
And I built a monument
To stand up straight for me

When all is said and done
The time will come
It might be too low
You'll see a more romantic me

I built a monument
To all we were
I built a monument
To me and her

Now she's coming back
The roof is cracked
And the walls are falling
And all those bitter words
Will flow back to the sea

And I watch the hourglass
The time will pass
You'll rue the day, love, (?)
When you ever strayed so far from me

I built a monument
To all we were
I built a monument
To me and her

And only we can knock it down now

I built a monument
To all we were
I built a monument
To me and her

I built a monument
To all we were
I built a monument
To me and her

    General CommentThe lead singer bought a headstone for his girlfriend as an anniversary gift, as monument to all that they were. She then in turn dumped him thinking it was a threat to her life

    General Commenti think this song could be about the singer writing this song which is dedicated to his relationship with his ex. and this song will last through time and never go away.
