'Peace' is a song from the 2009 album Sounds Of The Universe by Depeche Mode. It was released as a single on June 15, 2009.

Notes

Martin Gore told Billboard:

"I wrote ['Little Soul' and 'Peace'] back to back, and the flow of the album started to make more sense. I really felt they had a spirituality to them. That somehow set a cornerstone for the rest of the writing."

Martin Gore told Mojo magazine in 2009:

"['Peace' and 'Little Soul'] are two of the most spiritual songs I've ever written. Peace will come to me. Inner peace. I don't want to come across as a born-again Christian or some New Age hippy. But maybe it is about feeling more connected to the universe."

Martin told Think-silly.com in February 2009:

"'Peace' is my personal favourite. I think it could be one of the best songs I have ever written. It could be the next single."

Martin also told Keyboard magazine:

"Two of the songs I wrote back to back: 'Peace' followed by 'Little Soul.' They were, for me, quite spiritual sounding. Although they sound nothing like it, it almost felt a little bit like something from [Stevie Wonder's] Innervisions. There's something spiritual in that sense to them. It might seem really weird to be talking about Stevie Wonder. There's nothing that we ever do that really sounds like somebody else directly. I think it’s in my warped head, there’s something Stevie Wonder-like about 'Little Soul'."

Dave Gahan told Under The Radar magazine:

"When Martin played it to me for the first time I turned around and said, 'I think that's one of the best songs you've ever written.' Even in the demo form it was apparent that it was so full of melody, I thought it was just beautiful. Sometimes I don't know where he comes up with this stuff to be honest."

Lyrics


Peace

Peace will come to me

Peace will come to me


I'm leaving bitterness

Behind this time

I'm cleaning out my mind

There is no space

For the regrets

I will remember to forget


Just look at me

I am walking love incarnate

Look at the frequencies

At which I vibrate

I'm going to light up the world


Peace will come to me

Peace will come to me


I'm leaving anger in the past

With all the shadows

That it cast

There is a radar in my heart

I should have trusted

From the start


Just look at me

I'm a living act of holiness

Giving all the positivity

That I possess

I'm going to light up the world


Peace will come to me

Just wait and see

Peace will come to me

It's meant to be

Peace will come to me

Just wait and see

Peace will come to me

It's an inevitability
