“Walking in My Shoes” – Depeche Mode

songsoffaithanddevotionFrom : Songs of Faith and Devotion (1993)

Music and Lyrics : Martin Lee Gore

I would tell you about the things they put me through

The pain I’ve been subjected to

But the Lord himself, oh, would blush

The countless feasts laid at my feet

Forbidden fruits for me to eat

But I think your pulse would start to rush

 

Now I’m not looking for absolution

Forgiveness for the things I do

But before you come to any conclusions

Try walking in my shoes

Try walking in my shoes

 

You’ll stumble in my footsteps

Keep the same appointments I kept

If you try walking in my shoes

If you try walking in my shoes

 

Morality would frown upon

Decency look down upon

The scapegoat fate’s made of me

But I promise now, my judge and jurors

My intentions couldn’t have been purer

My case is easy to see

 

I’m not looking for a clearer conscience

Peace of mind after what I’ve been through

And before we talk of any repentance

Try walking in my shoes

 

Yeah, stumble in my footsteps

Keep the same appointments I kept

If you try walking in my shoes

If you try walking in my shoes

Try walking in my shoes

 

Now I’m not looking for absolution

Forgiveness for the things I do

But before you come to any conclusions

Try walking in my shoes

Try walking in my shoes

 

You’ll stumble in my footsteps

Keep the same appointments I kept

If you try walking in my shoes

If you try walking in my shoes

Try walking in my shoes

Now I’m not looking for absolution

Forgiveness for the things I do

But before you come to any conclusions

Try walking in my shoes

Try walking in my shoes

 

You’ll stumble in my footsteps

Keep the same appointments I kept

If you try walking in my shoes

You’ll stumble in my footsteps

Keep the same appointments I kept

If you try walking in my shoes

Try walking in my shoes

If you try walking in my shoes

Try walking in my shoes

 

Why this song

This song is an anthem to those who are used to be judged.

There is no reason not to be proud of who we are, as long as we do the right things.

Even dressed in black.
