"Dressed In Black" as written by and Martin Gore....
She's dressed in black again
And I'm falling down again
Down to the floor again
I'm begging for more again
But oh what can you do
When she's dressed in black

My mind wanders endlessly
On paths where she's leading me
With games that she likes to play
And words that she doesn't say
Not when we're alone
And she's dressed in black

As a picture of herself
She's a picture of the world
A reflection of you
A reflection of me
And it's all there to see
If you only give in
To the fire within

Dressed in black again

Shadows fall onto me
And she stands there over me
And waits to encompass me
I lay here helplessly
But oh what can you do
When she's dressed in black

Dressed in black again

    General CommentDepeche Mode has had a long history of BDSM tinged songs i.e. Master and Servant, In Your Room, and others. Though somewhat more subtle than those previously mentioned, this song is about BDSM. Note the title "Dressed in Black", which refers to a black leather costume, the references to domination and submission of "I'm falling down again/ Down to the floor again" and "I lay here helplessly".
