Breathe Lyrics

by Depeche Mode

I heard a rumor
They travel far
You know what it's like
The way people are

They talk and they talk
Though they don't understand
They'll whisper and whisper
And lie on demand

Please tell me now
I want to know
I have to hear it from your lips
Say it's not so

I heard it on Monday
And I laughed a while
I heard it on Tuesday
I managed to smile

I heard it on Wednesday
My patience was tried
And I heard it on Thursday
And I hurt inside

I want to know
The depths of your mind
Tell me this whole thing is madness
And we're doing fine

Put your little hand in mine
And believe in love
Put your head on my chest
And breathe love, breathe love
Breathe love, breathe love

I heard it from Peter
Who heard it from Paul
Who heard it from someone
I don't know at all

I heard it from Mary
Who heard it from Ruth
Who swore on the bible
She's telling the truth

I heard it from Simon
Who heard it from James
Confirming with Sarah
That I was to blame

I heard it from Joseph
Who heard it from John
Who said with conviction
That all hope was gone

So I need to know
Your alibis
I need to hear that you love me
Before you say goodbye
Before you say goodbye
Before you say goodbye
Before you say goodbye
