When Depeche Mode started recording an album in November 1995, 'Insight' was one of the three songs that Martin Gore had ready as a demo.

Lyrics


Insight

This is an insight

Into my life

This is a strange flight

I'm taking

My true will

Carries me along


This is a soul dance

Embracing me

This is the first chance

To put things right

Moving on

Guided by the light


And the spirit of love

Is rising within me

Talking to you now

Telling you clearly

The fire still burns


Wisdom of ages

Rush over me

Heighten my senses

Enlighten me

Lead me on

Eternally


And the spirit of love

Is rising within me

Talking to you now

Telling you clearly

The fire still burns


I'm talking to you now

The fire still burns

Whatever you do now

you've got to give love

The world still turns


I'm talking to you now
