"I Want You Now" as written by and Martin Lee Gore....
I want you now
Tomorrow won't do
There's a yearning inside
And it's showing through
Reach out your hands
And accept my love
We've waited for too long
Enough is enough
I want you now

My heart is aching
My body is burning
My hands are shaking
My head is turning
You understand
It's so easy to choose
We've got time to kill
We've got nothing to lose
I want you now

And I don't mean to sound
Like one of the boys
That's now what I'm trying to do
I don't want to be
Like one of the boys
I just want you now

Because I've got a love
A love that won't wait
A love that is growing
And it's getting late
Do you know what it means
To be left this way
When everyone's gone
And the feelings they stay
I want you now

    General CommentI agree anything comming out of Dave's mouth is sexy. There is no voice on earth that even remotely resembles his.

    this is my favourite DM song. everything out of david's mouth is sexy."

    Martin sings this song; Dave doesn't sing at all... Well, unless you count the groaning, which you can hear loudly in the foreground at the very beginning, as well as in the background throughout the entire song.

    General CommentYes, Martin sings the song. And the groaning you hear at the beginning is the sound you get from accordion when no key is pushed down. So it's purely synthetic.

    General CommentGod, this song is sexy. Martin's voice is perfect on this one. Look at the words closely though. This song goes beyond him telling his girl how much he wants her.

    It's an ultimatum.He's basically saying that if she doesn't give in, he's going to find someone else to have sex with, because the urge is too strong for him to deny.

    General CommentThis is, and always will be, my favorite Depeche Mode song. They are by FAR my favorite band. I saw them in concert yeeeeeeears ago and Martin did an acoustic version of this that made me cry. Amazing. They are so awesome.
