"Never Let Me Down Again (Depeche Mode cover)" as written by and Martin Lee Gore....
I'm taking a ride
With my best friend
I hope he never lets me down again
He knows where he's taking me
Taking me where I want to be
I'm taking a ride
With my best friend
We're flying high
We're watching the world pass us by
Never want to come down
Never want to put my feet back down
On the ground
I'm taking a ride
With my best friend
I hope he never lets me down again
Promises me I'm as safe as houses
As long as I remember who's wearing the trousers
I hope he never lets me down again
Never let me down
See the stars they're shining bright
Everything's alright tonight

    General Commenti have both versions and the SP one is my fave.... DM lyrics are beautiful and SP pulls new twist on music wonderfully.

    General CommentI agree with Chameleonica. Both songs are awesome, but Smashing Pumpkin's version simply sounds beautiful, melodious.

    General CommentI think the song is simply about drug use. The best friend is just a metephore for drugs. His best friend is the drugs. When he say he hopes he never lets him down again, he is talking about the high he gets from the drugs. This is most evident on the stanza that goes as follows:

    We're flying high
    We're watching the world pass us by
    Never want to come down
    Never want to put my feet back down
    On the ground
