"Halo" as written by and Martin Gore....
You wear guilt
Like shackles on your feet
Like a halo in reverse
I can feel
The discomfort in your seat
And in your head it's worse

There's a pain
A famine in your heart
An aching to be free

Can't you see
All love's luxuries
Are here for you and me

And when our worlds they fall apart
When the walls come tumbling in
Though we may deserve it
It will be worth it

Bring your chains
Your lips of tragedy
And fall into my arms

And when our worlds they fall apart
When the walls come tumbling in
Though we may deserve it
It will be worth it

And when our worlds they fall apart
When the walls come tumbling in
Though we may deserve it
It will be worth it

And when our worlds they fall apart
When the walls come tumbling in
Though we may deserve it
It will be worth it

And when our worlds they fall apart
When the walls come tumbling in
Though we may deserve it
It will be worth it

    General CommentA friend of mine claimed it's about the love between a priest and a nun because of the religious connotation of the title. Well, it really made me laugh. But then, the lyrics don't really disprove his perception.

    Nevertheless I favour an angle of view a bit wider than this. Generally speaking, it claims that love itself outweighs all consequences that might come from giving in to it. Simple as that.
