"Secret To The End" as written by David Gahan and Kurt Uenala....
When I look at you
I’m probably the same way too
I got a feeling that it’s coming soon
Could this be the end?

And when I look around this room
It must be something I can do
Can I convince you that it isn’t true?
We’ve come to the end

Oh did I disappoint you?
I wanted to believe it’s true
Oh the book of love
Was not enough to see us through

The problem should've been you (should've been you)
Should've been you (should've been you)
Should've been you (could've been you, should've been you)
If it hadn’t been me (could've been you, could've been you)
Should've been you (should've been you)
Should've been you (could've been you)
Should've been you
If it hadn’t been me

It seems so obvious to you
You’re feeling what I’m feeling too
The final chapter in the contract expires soon
We’ve come to the end

Thank God I’m not the same as you
You always know exactly what to do
Is who I am, is not for you
We’ve come to the end

Oh did I disappoint you?
I wanted to believe it’s true
Oh the book of love
Was not enough to see us through

The problem should've been you (should've been you)
Should've been you (could've been you)
Should've been you (would've been you, should've been you)
If it hadn’t been me (would’ve been you, could've been you)
Should've been you (should've been you)
Should've been you (would've been you, should've been you)

If it hadn’t been me (Could've been you, should've been you, could've been you)
Would've been you (would've been you)
Should've been you (Could've been you, should've been you, could've been you)

If it hadn’t been me (would've been you, could've been you, would've been you)
If it hadn’t been me (would've been you, would've been you, should've been you)
If it hadn’t been me (should've been you, could've been you, should've been you)
If it hadn’t been me (could've been you, could've been you, could've been you)
If it hadn’t been me

    My Interpretationthis is the song that grabs at my ears and stabs at my hear the most from Delta Machine. i haven't quite finished processing this song, but instantly i feel like the line "the problem should've been you, if it hadn't been me" describes my life almost exactly year ago. beautiful DM perfection.

    General CommentI think that he sees clearly that their relationship is not meant to last, but cannot accept it, because of the love he had felt for her. And what bothers him even more is that she deals with it too rationally, as she never had any feelings involved.

    My InterpretationThis is the end of the DG/MG phase as most people perceive it. At this point in DMs history, people start moaning that the energy is gone. It isn't, it's just simmering at a near basal level... lol.
