Precious Lyrics - Depeche Mode

Review The Song (78)



Precious and fragile things
Need special handling
My God what have we done to You?

We always try to share
The tenderest of care
Now look what we have put You through...

Things get damaged
Things get broken
I thought we'd manage
But words left unspoken
Left us so brittle
There was so little left to give

Angels with silver wings
Shouldn't know suffering
I wish I could take the pain for You

If God has a master plan
sponsored links
That only He understands
I hope it's Your eyes He's seeing through

Things get damaged
Things get broken
I thought we'd manage
But words left unspoken
Left us so brittle
There was so little left to give

I pray You learn to trust
Have faith in both of us
And keep room in Your heart for two

Things get damaged
Things get broken
I thought we'd manage
But words left unspoken
Left us so brittle
There was so little left to give

'Precious' the song is all abt me | Reviewer: Akinpelu Sherif Lanre | 12/25/12

Though this song might have been written for a child but it relates to me through my love life.
I do have a lady am madly in love with but we broke up 4 years ago and we hardly never spoke for 3 years and now she is with somebody else.
Though I have tried to be in a relationship with other ladies, but I just can't bcos she is always on my mind.
But just because of 'words left unspoken''it left us so brittle'and 'there was so little left to give'.
I just want Balogun Tawakalitu to know that she is 'Precious' and she will forever be My One and Only(MOO)

Evolution of a Man | Reviewer: Lucia | 11/15/12

This song represents Martin Gore's evolution as a human being. Enjoy the Silence is a beautiful song, but it underrates the role of communication in a relationship. Precious proves that Gore has learned his lesson about this: words left unspoken/left us so brittle/there was so little left to give.

Greatest Song Ever | Reviewer: Evelyn | 11/14/12

Martin Gore wrote this song about his divorce and its impact on his children. My parents are divorced too. I wish I had a dad like Martin Gore. He's written some great songs over the years, but this one tops even Personal Jesus and Enjoy the Silence as a pure, tender expression of love.

Poem for an angel | Reviewer: Sad | 7/8/11

I was listening to this song tonight and started bawling about my own shattered innocence, personal losses in my life, but most of all I was thinking about little Caylee Anthony and the hell that poor child went through. None of us will ever know what she went through in those last moments in her life, or what any murdered child or person goes through. It's unspeakable, horrific. I just keep think she deserved so much more, and I keep thinking that we failed her. Although we could not have done anything more and it was her mother and family who put should have and could have done more, I can't help feeling terrible. This song is very healing for me right now. I guess god has the master plan. God bless Caylee Marie and all the discarded souls who deserved so much more. "'angels with silver wings, should not know suffering"

Love, whether expressed or unrequited | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/22/11

Expressed and unfulfilled love-however fleeting-is the underpinning of humankind. When DM writes, "things get damaged, things get broken, I thought we'd manage but words left unspoken, left us so brittle..." it reminds me of an unfilled soul-tie I entered with a certain woman in my own life. I learned that when love is unfulfilled or inadequately expressed at best, "things get damaged...broken." For this reason, I relate to the pain and angst conveyed this song.

When we overlook Love's power and influence as we seek lustfully to fulfill our unmet needs that we can feel love's pain; no matter how well-intentioned, we cause the "angels with silver wings" to suffer.

Love is the victim, and we're the witless perpetrators!


For the struggle people | Reviewer: Human being in a time path | 4/17/11

Life is precious. It like a paradox but if you it kan feel en think both it is a system of empathie. You can love it. Understand it and give it a place. And you can let it lose if its neasesery in whisdom and responcebillity. I like the song very much and give me strength.


Love and Trust | Reviewer: Peter | 3/5/11

This song is really special. Precious and fragile things really need spacial handling, big understanding and also compassion. If there is no respect, it is not possible to keep those values alive. I know it well because I experienced something very similar what is written on the lyrics. Maybe this song is written for his child but learning to trust to someone else and have faith for love are quite difficult to achieve. Therefore if you have it once, then it shouldn't be given up easily for any reasons. I never give up from love and trust because there is always a bright-blue sky and hope.

Things really got broken! | Reviewer: Jonathan | 2/27/11

Those lyrics really go into deep of my heart and soul. It reminds me the greatest love I have ever had and how it ended in a really unspoken and crushing way. It was precious and the most wonderful value of my life but because of refusing to understand, it became a damaging one. It was selfish and disrespectful. I always wished that I could take the pain for him but my heart was really broken many times with rash, unreasonable and unnecessary reasons. My feelings & thoughts and what was inside me were so innocence but things really got damaged and things really got broken. Therefore, this song is really "precious".

My Dad | Reviewer: paulina | 1/22/11

This song always makes me think of my Dad, he introduced me to DM, and we would always rock out to them, especially on road trips. He died of brain cancer 6 months ago and basically any song of theirs reminds me of those wonderful times with him, but this one hits home with the lyrics and the great number of times we've butchered the song signing along with it :) Miss you Daddy.

Suffering | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/14/10

This song is beautiful. Although I know it was written for a child left in the ravages and ugly bitterness that comes with a divorce, it hits home for me as the husband of a multiple cancer survivor. I think of all the times I lost my patience with her, when she was sick, and how I really wish I could take the pain for her.

its MJ. | Reviewer: iloveyou | 5/3/10

I think of Michael Jackson when listening to this song. I love you most sweetie. We hurt this angel, he's done nothing wrong. He tried to heal the world, and he donated billions of money to heal others. We broke him.

its about children | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/1/10

I am about to losse my baby spiritual son. He will be gone soon with her mother, a former girlfriend, and everytime I hear this song I think of him, asking him to keep room in his hearth for two for ever.

The Man | Reviewer: bperez | 2/8/10

This song reminds me of my husband who committed suicide. We fought and fought all the time and we loved each other so that we fought and at the end all we wanted was to be closed but life got in the way. All i know is that our angel should never know suffering but now she does more that she should have ever known.

martin is a genious | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/7/09

martin gore says that he wrote this song 4 his child 'cause during he was writing the playing angel's lyrics...he was getting through a divorce..so he felt he needed to do something about the emotions his child was feeling.....and he decide to put them in the lyrics....Such a beautiful way to explain the awful truth of reality i think....he's just a genious
