Sweetest Perfection
Depeche Mode Lyrics


The sweetest perfection
To call my own
The slightest correction
Couldn't finely hone
The sweetest infection
Of body and mind
Sweetest injection
Of any kind

I stop and I stare too much
Afraid that I care too much
And I hardly dare to touch
For fear that the spell may be broken

When I need a drug in me
And it brings out the thug in me
Feel something tugging me
Then I want the real thing, not tokens

The sweetest perfection
To call my own
The slightest correction
Couldn't finely hone
The sweetest infection
Of body and mind
Sweetest injection
Of any kind

And things you'd expect to be
Having effect on me
Pass undetectedly
But everyone knows what has got me
Takes me completely
Touches so sweetly
Reaches so deeply
I know that nothing can stop me

Sweetest perfection
An offer was made
An assorted collection
But I wouldn't trade

The sweetest perfection
To call my own
The slightest correction
Couldn't finely hone
The sweetest infection
Of body and mind
Sweetest injection
Of any kind

The sweetest perfection
To call my own
The slightest correction
Couldn't finely hone
(Nothing can stop me) the sweetest infection
(Takes me completely) of body and mind
(Touches so sweetly) sweetest injection
(Reaches so deeply) of any kind
(Nothing can stop me) the sweetest perfection
(Takes me completely) to call my own
(Touches so sweetly) the sweetest correction
(Reaches so deeply) couldn't finely hone
(Nothing can stop me) the sweetest infection
(Takes me completely) of body and mind
(Touches so sweetly) sweetest injection
(Reaches so deeply) of any kind

The sweetest perfection
To call my own
The slightest correction
Couldn't finely hone
The sweetest infection
Of body and mind
Sweetest injection
Of any kind
I stop and I stare too much
Afraid that I care too much
And I hardly dare to touch
For fear that the spell may be broken
When I need a drug in me
And it brings out the thug in me
Feel something tugging me
Then I want the real thing not tokens
The sweetest perfection...
Things you'd expect to be
Having effect on me
Pass undetectedly
But everyone knows what has got me
Takes me completely
Touches so sweetly
Reaches so deeply
I know that nothing can stop me
Sweetest perfection
An offer was made
An assorted collection
But I wouldn't trade
The sweetest perfection...
Takes me completely
Touches so sweetly
Reaches so deeply
Nothing can stop me

This is moi

I recall when this came out and I was seriously impressed, obsessed with Violator. And this song is one of Martin's brightest moments. it's so erotic and violent at the same time.

Marcela Geiger

I don't find it violent...

Love this album too! They make amazing music and are still doing so! DM has been my favorite band since I was 12. in 1987!

Your linguistics impress me.

Of all the songs Depeche Mode released in the 80s and early 90s, this song feels particularly far ahead of its time.

Synthesizers are awesome.
