"Precious" as written by and Martin Lee Gore....
Precious and fragile things
Need special handling
My God what have we done to you?

We always tried to share
The tenderest of care
Now look what we have put you through

Things get damaged, things get broken
I thought we'd manage, but words left unspoken
Left us so brittle
There was so little left to give

Angels with silver wings
Shouldn't know suffering
I wish I could take the pain for you

If God has a master plan
That only He understands
I hope it's your eyes He's seeing through

Things get damaged, things get broken
I thought we'd manage, but words left unspoken
Left us so brittle
There was so little left to give

I pray you learn to trust
Have faith in both of us
And keep room in your hearts for two

Things get damaged, things get broken
I thought we'd manage, but words left unspoken
Left us so brittle
There was so little left to give

    General CommentWell, I'm sorry to say this if it is not a public knowledge. Martin is/was currently undergoing a divorce and this song is said to be written about his children.

    The song is very Depeche-like. Nothing new but hey, it sounds good, anyway. Dave's vocals are amazing.
