"Rush" as written by Jason Harrow, Evan Rogers and Carl Sturken....
Walk with me
Open your sensitive mouth
And talk to me
Hold out your delicate hands
And feel me
Couldn't make any plans
To conceal me
Open your sensitive mouth
Hold out your delicate hands
With such a sensitive mouth
I'm easy to see through
When I come up
When I rush
I rush for you
Cry for you
Seen the tears
Roll down from my eyes for you
Heard my truth
Distorting to lies for you
Watched my love
Becoming a prize for you
Seen the tears in my eyes
Heard my truth turn to lies
Seen the tears in my eyes
I'm not proud of what I do
When I come up
When I rush
I rush for you
I come up to meet you
Up there somewhere
When I rush to greet you
My soul is bared
Gave more for you
Dropped my crutches
And crawled on the floor for you
Went looking behind every door for you
And because of the things
That I saw for you
I spiritually grew
When I come up
When I rush
I rush for you

    General CommentSeems like someone he's desperately in love with and wants, but that person just plays games with him and it's making him crazy.

    General Commenti like to think of this song being about a guy who is misses his ex. they've dated before but things fell apart, (maybe he broke up with her) and now they've started becoming friends again, and hanging out. she seemed to move on but he still misses her alot--he looks forward seeing her again just so he could be with her, and he hates the fact that he has to lie to her (telling her that he's over her as well)and it sucks a lot because he really wants her back.

    but yeah...totally awesome song.

    General CommentI'm so tired of people saying every single song that was ever done by Depeche Mode is about drugs. It's so narrow-minded and actually kind of shallow. To Hollygayface - no, he didn't do it for his fans, you obviously know nothing about drugs and addiction... we're all lucky he isn't dead. There was genius before, and there is genius after. Lastly, Martin Gore is the writer, not David Gahan. So David, in this song, outside of his voice, is telling us nothing.

    That being said, this song is one of my favorites. David Gahan's voice is absolutely incredible, sexy, haunting, desperate, so much more than anyone's voice should be able to encapsulate in a mere 5 minutes. The lyrics are some of MG's best. I think this is about obsessing over someone that stringing you along... and all the shame and desperation involved. Not a hard-on and a needle. They are so much more than that.

    General CommentA new point of view for me. Well it makes sense, although it could also be about devotion to another person. Anyway, one of my favs, I love the power of this song!

    My InterpretationI believe that this song is about a break up because of the part
    Seen the tears in my eyes
    Heard my truth turn to lies
    Seen the tears in my eyes
    I'm not proud of what I do

    Seeming to the part that he is crying and also rumors going around

    Song MeaningTo me this song has always been about erection and orgasm.

    "Couldn't make any plans To conceal me" and "I come up to meet you" is an erection.

    "When I rush to greet you" is the orgasm.

    The rest is about the relationship that the couple is in, but the primary imagery is that of the male orgasm.

    General CommentWell, for one, words cannot describe what this song does to me...just takes me somewhere else.

    And yeah, it is about heroine and drugs, but not in the ordinary sense. This is a song to his fans and all those that have condemned him for the drugs he took and the lifestyle he lived.
    In this song, very much like 'Walking in my Shoes', Dave is just telling the people that he did it for them. He feels that that is the only way he could produce such genius (and I think we can mostly agree that it is indeed, genius).

    "I come up to meet you" - could be a reference to getting high before a gig, to meet his fans.

    "I'm not proud of what i do" - this line just makes me get goosebumps; Dave just saying like, look, I know what I do, and I know its nothing to be proud of but I only do it for you.

    Thats my opinion anyways :)
