"Saw Something" as written by Christian Eigner, Andrew Charles Phillpott and David Gahan....
After the storm had passed
I wondered how long
The break in the clouds would last

I saw something in your eyes, I'm sure
Baby, I saw it
Something in your eyes
I wanted it for myself

I sit and I wait and I stare
Still wishing for a divine intervention
To lift me from my chair

I saw something in your eyes, I'm sure
Baby, I saw it
Something in your eyes

I saw something in your eyes, I'm sure
Baby, I saw it
It was something in your eyes
I wanted it for myself

You and I have come so far
We've reached beyond the farthest star
Time and time and time again
I want you back, you were a friend
We can't pretend

I saw something in your eyes, I'm sure
Baby, I saw it
Something in your eyes
I wanted it for myself

    General Commenti think this song is about rediscovering that there is something inexplicable about a person whom you previously got away from, and then realizing that what that person does for you is something you want to return to, keep, and cherish.

    General CommentPerson is gone -> Narrator realizes how much they've done, and how much they enjoyed it -> Narrator wants it all back.

    "You and I have come so far

    Time and time and time again

    I think that song was dedicated to Alan. Dave is kinda transparent person and always made clear that he misses his former bandmate.

    My InterpretationThis song is about Alan Wilder, duh.

    You and I have come so far / We've reached beyond the farthest star
    Time and time and time again / I want you back
    You were a friend / We can't pretend

    Obviously about their time together in DM and how the band was considered at their peak when Alan was still around. Also, they were very close friends so it'll make sense how Dave wants him back.
