Words like violence
break the silence
come crashing in
into my little world
painful to me
pierce right through me
can't you understand
o my little girl

All I ever wanted
all I ever needed
is here in my arms
words are very unnecessary
they can only do harm

Vows are spoken
to be broken
feelings are intense
words are trivial
pleasure remain
so does the pain
words are meaningless
and forgettable

All I ever wanted
all I ever needed
is here in my arms
words are very unnecessary
they can only do harm

Enjoy The Silence

    Covers from Depeche Mode, New Order,& The Cure are ok but can never be better than the original.

    Rammsteins version of Stripped is back of the net and a textbook example of how a cover should be. But this IS BAD! Depeche Modes version has just been kidnapped, raped and killed in an evil conspiracy to kill the 80's!

    HIM is an awesome band and Enjoy the Silence is an amazing song, but this is crap compared to Depeche Mode. I agree with cheren28 totally, HIM should have just left it alone.

    Wonderful cover of Depeche mode. The meaning of the song is as plain as day in the lyrics. Meow

    Its clear that he doesn't want to be disturbed by words, hes clearly in total rest with his one love. And words lik "I Love You" will ruin it all. Just like in every relationship you should really know when to say those 3 little words.

    I love this cover...anybody happen to know where it came from? Like, was it a demo, a b-side, anything like that? I wish they'd put it on an album, or play it live some time (think they have done before but not recently).

    ok now i've actually listened to this song.. and OMG just ACK!!! They completely butcher the song. His vocals are something worse then listening to a cat cough up a hairball. Im sorry HIM fans but some things should be left alone if they can't do a better job then that. Manson's cover of Personal Jesus surpasses this garbage by a long shot. At least he put some effort into it. This was more of a mockery then a tribute. By far the worst DM cover i've ever heard, and ive heard some really bad ones. I like Rammstein's version of Stripped. But no disrespect to HIM fans u like what u like but im entitled to my opinion also, and this song makes my whole body cringe.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
Album art
Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
Album art
Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
Album art
Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
