"Rush" as written by Jason Harrow, Evan Rogers and Carl Sturken....
Walk with me
Open your sensitive mouth
And talk to me
Hold out your delicate hands
And feel me
Couldn't make any plans
To conceal me
Open your sensitive mouth
Hold out your delicate hands
With such a sensitive mouth
I'm easy to see through
When I come up
When I rush
I rush for you
Cry for you
Seen the tears
Roll down from my eyes for you
Heard my truth
Distorting to lies for you
Watched my love
Becoming a prize for you
Seen the tears in my eyes
Heard my truth turn to lies
Seen the tears in my eyes
I'm not proud of what I do
When I come up
When I rush
I rush for you
I come up to meet you
Up there somewhere
When I rush to greet you
My soul is bared
Gave more for you
Dropped my crutches
And crawled on the floor for you
Went looking behind every door for you
And because of the things
That I saw for you
I spiritually grew
When I come up
When I rush
I rush for you

    General CommentSeems like someone he's desperately in love with and wants, but that person just plays games with him and it's making him crazy.

    General Commenti like to think of this song being about a guy who is misses his ex. they've dated before but things fell apart, (maybe he broke up with her) and now they've started becoming friends again, and hanging out. she seemed to move on but he still misses her alot--he looks forward seeing her again just so he could be with her, and he hates the fact that he has to lie to her (telling her that he's over her as well)and it sucks a lot because he really wants her back.

    but yeah...totally awesome song.

    General CommentI'm so tired of people saying every single song that was ever done by Depeche Mode is about drugs. It's so narrow-minded and actually kind of shallow. To Hollygayface - no, he didn't do it for his fans, you obviously know nothing about drugs and addiction... we're all lucky he isn't dead. There was genius before, and there is genius after. Lastly, Martin Gore is the writer, not David Gahan. So David, in this song, outside of his voice, is telling us nothing.

    That being said, this song is one of my favorites. David Gahan's voice is absolutely incredible, sexy, haunting, desperate, so much more than anyone's voice should be able to encapsulate in a mere 5 minutes. The lyrics are some of MG's best. I think this is about obsessing over someone that stringing you along... and all the shame and desperation involved. Not a hard-on and a needle. They are so much more than that.

    General CommentA new point of view for me. Well it makes sense, although it could also be about devotion to another person. Anyway, one of my favs, I love the power of this song!

    My InterpretationI believe that this song is about a break up because of the part
    Seen the tears in my eyes
    Heard my truth turn to lies
    Seen the tears in my eyes
    I'm not proud of what I do

    Seeming to the part that he is crying and also rumors going around

    General CommentWell, I have some strange feeling that this song is about blow job, right?

    General CommentWell, addictions are running through Martin and through Dave right now, and Fletch has his problems, This is the tour from Hell, and the one that mould's DM's future. Martin has his quirks, after all, so really, this song could apply equally to both of them. I see it as some form of poly/junkie/SM multi-confessional without any apology. Needs must, all know at this stage that it is change or die.

    My InterpretationFor me this song will always be about an orgasm. For example, in between minute 2:26 and 2:33 of the song and other parts, but specially there, you can hear a subtle ringing noise that reminds me of how your ears start ringing after an orgasm.
