"World In My Eyes" as written by and Martin Gore....
Let me take you on a trip
Around the world and back
And you won't have to move
You just sit still
Now let your mind do the walking
And let my body do the talking
Let me show you the world in my eyes
I'll take you to the highest mountain
To the depths of the deepest sea
We won't need a map, believe me
Now let my body do the moving
And let my hands do the soothing
Let me show you the world in my eyes
That's all there is
Nothing more than you can feel now
That's all there is
Let me put you on a ship
On a long, long trip
Your lips close to my lips
All the islands in the ocean
All the heaven's in the motion
Let me show you the world in my eyes
That's all there is
Nothing more than you can touch now
That's all there is
Let me show you the world in my eyes

    General CommentA song about a tender, romantic, gentleman who wants to make love to (not F---) his partner, who is probably a virgin, and this guy is telling his virgin partner how sensational making love with him will be. It's not a song about F---ing or even about sex. It's about making love.

    General CommentAll you sex addicted m. f-ers need to understand that Depeche Mode is not about f--ing or sex. It's all about romanticism. In fact this band is not for everybody to be crazy about. Not for f-ing punks and junkies, f-ing idiots that say they love DM just for one song from the radio. This band is purely for all the guys and girls in this world that feel they have something romantic in their hearts and Depeche Mode makes us feel different from the others, makes us feel that we glide in this life because of this divine music. DM is my life and I am sure I´m not the only one in this world to say so. We are in fact a DM-Nation!!!
    Com on guys, who's with me?

    P.S - ...the world in my eyes means - let me show you how f-ing romantic I am.

    My InterpretationThis song is about bringing a woman to orgasm. Men get off almost every time and he's saying, "Let me show you how good it can be when someone actually cares about what you feel." It's a very romantic notion since it's about being selfless in lovemaking.
    The line, "That's all there is. Nothing more than you can feel now" means nothing else in the world matters when you're coming. It's not about disappointment. On the contrary, it's about it being such a huge deal that for that moment it encompasses your whole world.

    General CommentIt's a sex song. Like the last guy said, she's the world he wants to explore. Not overtly sexy to listen to, but when you understand the meaning, it somehow works really really well and gets more and more erotic sounding as you listen to it more. Definitely one of my favorites from DM. I can remember my brother listening to this back in the day...now I know why DM's his fav band.

    General CommentWhat better way to start the best album every in ur career? The Violator album is flawless. This song like many DM songs hits ur soul. I never get sick of this album I have been listening to it since I was 14 years old way back in 1990 when this album first came out and it still is the best i have ever listened to. Even some hardcore metal fans love this album. I'll stand by my comment on Amazon and say that if everyone in the world had a copy of Violator the world would be a calmer place even just for an instant till the cd was finished playing LOL.
