I Want You Now
Depeche Mode Lyrics


I want you now
Tomorrow won't do
There's a yearning inside
And it's showing through
Reach out your hands
And accept my love
We've waited for too long
Enough is enough
I want you now
My heart is aching
My body is burning
My hands are shaking
My head is turning
You understand
It's so easy to choose
We've got time to kill
We've got nothing to lose
I want you now

And I don't mean to sound
Like one of the boys
That's now what I'm trying to do
I don't want to be
Like one of the boys
I just want you now

Because I've got a love
A love that won't wait
A love that is growing
And it's getting late
Do you know what it means
To be left this way
When everyone's gone
And the feelings they stay
I want you now

I want you now
Tomorrow won't do
There's a yearning inside
And it's showing through
Reach out your hands
And accept my love
We've waited for too long
Enough is enough
I want you now
My heart is aching
My body is burning
My hands are shaking
My head is turning
You understand
It's so easy to choose
We've got time to kill
We've got nothing to lose
I want you now
And I don't mean to sound
Like one of the boys
That's now what I'm trying to do
I don't want to be
Like one of the boys
I just want you now
Because I've got a love
A love that won't wait
A love that is growing
And it's getting late
Do you know what it means
To be left this way
When everyone's gone
And the feelings they stay
I want you now

I love this song. So minimalist, but so powerful. The constant hard breathing in the background, the low moaning, all of it works so well together. There's so much implied passion and strength of feeling.

Amazing song. Martin Gore is brilliant!

Roberto Hot

Underrated genius

Florian Davidovic

Often singing it and "Little 15" on the morning way to the bus stop, at the age of 14. Best lyrics of all english bands for me. Thank you Depeche Mode.

Alex Ehlers

@Florian Davidovic same for me, so many hours spent pacing and being ready but nothing happening.

Florian Davidovic

I was. Too many hours sat and waiting

Alex Ehlers

'Little 15' hits you hard if you were a bored teenager like I was.

I've read a book about Depeche Mode, they took these sounds (breathing) of some porn and they requested some girls (i supposed their fans) if they could make some moaning for this song as well. Finally they made a sampling of this all in this song. I think it sounds great heh :D

Musicisthe Best - that “breathing” is the vent on an accordion 🙄
