"To Have and to Hold (Depeche Mode cover)" as written by and Martin Lee Gore....
(originally done by Depeche Mode)
I need to be cleansed
It's time to make amends
For all of the fun
The damage is done
And I feel diseased
I'm down on my knees
And I need forgiveness
Someone to bear witness
To the goodness within
Beneath the sin
Although I may flirt
With all kinds of dirt
To the point of disease

Now I want release
From all this decay
Take it away
And somewhere
There's someone who cares
With a heart of gold
To have and to hold

    General Commenthe's tired of fucking around and having no good relationships in his life. he is depressed and he dislikes himself. he wants a long lasting good healthy relationship. he wants someone to have and to hold.
