"Newborn" as written by and Martin Lee Gore....
Newborn
For the first time
I'm not born again
I have never lived at all
I've opened up my eyes
Now I hear the world talking
Opened up my eyes
I've just started walking

I've got someone who cares for me
Someone who believes in me
I've got someone understanding me
Someone crying over me
For all the right reasons

I've got someone seeing grace in me
Someone respecting me
I've got someone who's there for me
Someone saying prayers for me
For all the right reasons

    General CommentPerhaps the reason this wasn't included on the "Playing the Angel" album is because it isn't really suitable for the -pain-suffering- themes. Rather, it's optimistic in its effect and is along the same lines as metamorphosis. A human is consciously aware of his or her surroundings and can come in terms with lightness, to see and define qualities that were unnoticeable before. It speaks of change in a great way - and as such could be used to help foster a friendship with someone else who recognizes those qualities of change for better. Because humans need each other, even the introverted ones, there is a connection between those two -friendship, relationship- ect and it's is actually a great thing. It's like the lion watching over its cubs. It's romantic, but it's also survival.
