Notes

Ben Hillier told Depeche-mode.com:

"'Sinner In Me' was... well it wasn't actually that challenging to do, it was good fun to do, but we changed it an awful lot from the demo. It was very different that one. That one was kinda reggae... [laughs] If you can imagine that!"

Ben Hillier told the November 2005 of Keyboard magazine:

"[T]here's that rather ominous bass that begins 'The Sinner in Me' which also uses the [ARP] 2600s."

Lyrics


The Sinner In Me

If I could just hide

The sinner inside

And keep him denied

How sweet life would be

If I could be free

From the sinner in me


I'll never be a saint

That's not a picture

That your memory paints

Not renowned for my patience

I'm not renowned for my restraint


But you're always around

You can always be found

To pick me up

When I'm on the ground


If I could just hide

The sinner inside

And keep him denied

How sweet life would be

If I could be free

From the sinner in me


I'm still recovering

Still getting over all the suffering

More known for my anger

Than for any other thing


But you've always tried

To be by my side

And catch my fall

When I start to slide


If I could just hide

The sinner inside

And keep him denied

How sweet life would be

If I could be free

From the sinner in me
