Depeche Mode - The Child Inside Lyrics




There is darkness and death in your eyes
What have you got buried inside
The shallow grave in your soul
The ghosts there have taken control
You really should have dug a little deeper there
Body parts are starting to appear and scare
The child inside away

Each tear that flows down your face
Trickles then picks up the pace
And turns to a river inside
A river that will not subside
I can hear that dreadful overflowing sound
And watching from afar I see a child is drowned
The child inside your heart

I can see you drifting away
Heading for the light
I can see you drifting away
Every night

Why were you always inside
On days when the weather was fine
And while we were running around
You were nowhere to be found
You know you should have taken all your dolls to bed
But you were made to play games with your soul instead
The child inside you died

Depeche Mode The Child Inside Comments
  1. Jorge Gianco

    There is darkness and death in your eyes
    What have you got buried inside?
    The shallow grave in your soul
    The ghosts that have taken control

    You really should have dug a little deeper there
    Body parts are starting to appear and scare
    The child inside away

    Each tear that flows down your face
    Trickles then picks up the pace
    And turns to a river inside
    A river that will not subside

    I can hear that dreadful overflowing sound
    And watching from afar I see a child is drowned
    The child inside your heart

    I can see you drifting away
    Heading for the light
    I can see you drifting away
    Every night

    Why were you always inside?
    On days when the weather was fine
    And while we were running around
    You were nowhere to be found

    You know you should have taken all your dolls to bed
    Well you were made to play games with your soul instead

    The child inside you died

    L' album "delta machine" est pour moi une grande déception et le plus mauvais depuis "speak and spell".
    Ce morceau tristounet et tiède ne redresse pas l'album malgré "alone"

  3. Craig Smallman

    Bit of black celebration

  4. Ma Ja

    It's made me emotional like no other song.

  5. S. G.

    this song is a masterpiece

  6. Brandon K. Cobb

    This is me scolding myself.
    I WANT no one else to like this song because it is MINE.

  7. Patryk A
