Notes

Martin Gore in Bong issue no. 37, 1998: "This track has always been almost like an old 50s or 60s classic pop song. It’s a really good song to do live and it’s got a great melody. I joked with the others about it the other day, saying I think The Beatles stole the melody from me..."

Lyrics


A Question Of Lust

Fragile

Like a baby in your arms

Be gentle with me

I'd never willingly

Do you harm


Apologies

Are all you ever seem to get from me

But just like a child

You make me smile

When you care for me

And you know


It's a question of lust

It's a question of trust

It's a question of not letting

What we've built up

Crumble to dust

It is all of these things and more

That keep us together


Independence

Is still important for us though (we realise)

It's easy to make

The stupid mistake

Of letting go (do you know what I mean)


My weaknesses

You know each and every one (it frightens me)

But I need to drink

More than you seem to think

Before I'm anyone's

And you know


It's a question of lust

It's a question of trust

It's a question of not letting

What we've built up

Crumble to dust

It is all of these things and more

That keep us together


Kiss me goodbye

When I'm on my own

But you know that I'd rather be home


It's a question of lust

It's a question of trust

It's a question of not letting

What we've built up

Crumble to dust

It is all of these things and more

That keep us together
