'Rush' is a song from the 1993 album Songs Of Faith And Devotion by Depeche Mode.

Notes

Alan Wilder said in the May 1993 issue of Keyboard magazine:

"There's a part in the middle of 'Rush', the sort of progressive rock track near the end of the album, where the voice has lots of backwards reverb; that really sets to vocal part off."

In the EPK for 'Songs Of Faith And Devotion', a sheet can be seen that shows that the working title for Rush was actually 'I Rush For You', with the tentative lyrics "See the tears from my eyes // Heard my truths become lies".

Lyrics


Rush

Walk with me

Open your sensitive mouth

And talk to me

Hold out your delicate hands

And feel me

Couldn't make any plans

To conceal me


Open your sensitive mouth

Hold out your delicate hands

With such a sensitive mouth

I'm easy to see through


When I come up

When I rush

I rush for you


Cry for you

Seen the tears

Roll down from my eyes for you

Heard my truth

Distorted to lies for you

Watched my love

Becoming a prize for you


Seen the tears in my eyes

Heard my truth turn to lies

Seen the tears in my eyes

I'm not proud of what I do


When I come up

When I rush

I rush for you


I come up to meet you

Up there somewhere

When I rush to greet you

My soul is bared


Gave more for you

Dropped my crutches

And crawled on the floor for you

Went looking behind every door for you

And because of the things

That I saw for you

I spiritually grew


When I come up

When I rush

I rush for you


I rush for you
