I've felt better
I've been up all night
I can feel it coming
The morning light

The air is so cold here
It's so hard to breathe
We better take cover
Will you cover me?

Way up here with the Northern lights
Beyond you and me
I dreamt of us in another life
One we've never reached

You know we're sinking
We could fade away
I'm not going down
Not today

The air is so cold here
Too cold to see
We have to take cover
Cover me

Way up here with the Northern lights
Beyond these broken bars
I pictured us in another life
Where we're all super stars

    My InterpretationI think this a fairly simple call for Transcendence; freedom from chains, peace.

    My OpinionI was sure when I first heard this track that is was not Martin that wrote it because the style was so different from what I am used to hearing...That turned out to be correct, it was Dave Gahan with help from two other contributors. I think the meaning is pretty much straightforward, no hidden messages that I can make out anyway. The Depeche Mode - Cover Me (Dixon remix) is pretty good if you like progressive house or electronic music.
