"Surrender" as written by and Martin Gore....
Try to forget torment
Lying behind a smile
Tears for sentiment
Now I've done my time

You filled my head with your opinions
Blind to your lies I listened

Still waiting for love to take revenge (revenge)
For that sweet surrender

You'll get what you deserve
Hiding behind a lie
Revenge says more than words
You'll pay for your crime

I fooled myself you'd change your ways
Blind to your lies I listened

Still waiting for love to take revenge (revenge)
For that sweet surrender

Still waiting for love to take revenge
For that sweet surrender

Still waiting for love to take revenge
For that sweet surrender

Still waiting for love to take revenge (revenge)
For that sweet surrender

Still waiting for love to take revenge
For that sweet surrender

Still waiting for love to take revenge (revenge)
Still waiting for love

Still waiting for love to take revenge
Waiting for love from heaven

Still waiting for love to take revenge
Still waiting for love

To take revenge
Sweet revenge
Waiting for love from heaven

    General CommentThis song is gorgeous, and it sounds great sung by Dave, but Martin's version on the Exciter Live In Paris dvd (it's an easter egg), where he's singing it backstage, is truly stunning.

    General CommentAnother song of Martin in bondage.
    "Shackled like an animal"
    "Laying on your holy bed
    by the hallowed door
    Feeling like an infidel
    Not worthy of your call"

    And once again, he surrenders control to another Dominant.
    "I'm a man of flesh and bone
    Rapture
    Rushing through my veins
    Passion
    Flaming
    In my heart
    Heavenly surrender once again
    Yeah"

    Lyric CorrectionActually it should be:

    "Feeling like an infidel
    Not worthy of your floor
    Tempted by your innocence
    Beckoned to my fate
    I will face the consequence
    I wouldn't hesitate"

    On the versions that Martin sings those are the lyrics.
