The Mission - Only You And You Alone

Written by Wayne Hussey
Backing vocals by Martin L. Gore


The angels are weeping again
For the heart will wander where the flesh will lead
Is conscience really no more than the fear of being caught?
Do you hate yourself for loving me? For loving me
I toss and I turn on this bed of nails 'cos the pills ain't working
The silence roars like a monstruous ocean
And only the shallow breathing of you lying next to me
Brings me any comfort

It's you, only you, there's only you, and you alone
It's only ever you

It's only through betrayal I have found my way back home to you
I've just heard you breathe my name in your sleep
Or is that just wishful thinking wishful thinking
'Cos there's lots of sad words that sound just like my name
And God only knows how many devils visit you in your slumber
The sky is black, even the moon has abondoned us
Tonight smells of jasmine and fallen stars
Oh how the reflex always betrays

It's you, only you, there's only you, and you alone
It's only ever you

There are appetites I'd long thought sated
Impulse and desire I'd long thought abated
Until I'm one with you again I wanna feel all the hurt and pain
I wanna feel the burning shame I wanna take all the curses and the blame
