Music: Enjoy The Silence by Depeche Mode

MUSIC is a segment that features a song that’s caught my brain. Some new to me, some known to me, all brilliant.

Everyday is an onslaught of words and I’m fine with that. But it does pay to occasionally stop and enjoy the silence. “Enjoy The Silence” is in no way new to me; a precious song in my musical armoire. My morning walk inspired today’s selection.

Lyrics (provided by Genius) Enjoy The Silence by Depeche Mode. Album, Violator.

[Verse 1]
Words like violence break the silence
Come crashing in into my little world
Painful to me, pierce right through me
Can’t you understand? Oh, my little girl

[Chorus]
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

[Interlude]

[Verse 2]
Vows are spoken to be broken
Feelings are intense, words are trivial
Pleasures remain, so does the pain
Words are meaningless and forgettable

[Chorus]
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

[Interlude]

[Chorus]
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm
All I ever wanted
All I ever needed is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

[Interlude]

[Outro]
Enjoy the silence
