Notes

Martin Gore told Electronics and Music Magazine in 1986:

[...] "Then there’s the mandolin-like part on 'Here is the House'. That was an acoustic guitar sampled twice — once on a down-stroke and once on an upstroke. We used them on alternate notes, so every other note was a downstroke and all the in-between notes were up-strokes. It sounded very funny — almost like a real player."

Lyrics


Here Is The House

Here is the house

Where it all happened

Those tender moments

Under this roof

Body and soul come together

As we come closer together

And as it happens

It happens here

In this house


And I feel your warmth

And it feels like home

And there's someone

Calling on the telephone

Let's stay home

It's cold outside

And I have so much

To confide to you


With or without words

I'll confide everything


Here is the house

Where it all happened

Those tender moments

Under this roof

Body and soul come together

As we come closer together

And as it happens

It happens here

In this house


So we stay at home

And I'm by your side

And you know

What's going on inside

Inside my heart

Inside this house

And I just want to

Let it out for you


And I feel your warmth

And it feels like home

And I feel your warmth

And it feels like home


Here is the house

Where it all happened

Those tender moments

Under this roof

Body and soul come together

As we come closer together
