"Soul With Me" is a song from the 2023 album Memento Mori by Depeche Mode.


Martin Gore said in the May 2023 issue of Uncut Magazine:

"I really like 'Soul With Me' for its interesting confluence of influences. When I was writing it I felt like it almost had a Pet Sounds-era Beach Boys sound mixed with some Kurt Weill chords, but then also an homage to gospel music with its soul-influenced chorus. It's musically a very interesting outlier in our catalogue. And while the words are obviously about death, they're also very tongue in cheek."


Soul With Me

I'm heading for the ever after

Leaving my problems

And the world's disasters

I'm heading for the open sky

I see the beauty

As the leaves start falling

Follow the light

Towards the voices calling

I'm going where the angels fly

And I'm taking my soul with me

And I'm taking my soul with me

I'm ready for the final pages

Kiss goodbye to all my earthly cages

I'm climbing up the golden stairs

Go sing it from the highest tower

From the morning

Till the midnight hour

I'm going where there are no cares

And I'm taking my soul with me

And I'm taking my soul with me
