Enjoy the Silence Lyrics

Words like violence break the silence

Come crashing in into my little world

Painful to me, pierce right through me

Can't you understand, oh my little girl?



All I ever wanted, all I ever needed

Is here in my arms

Words are...

    there's a remix and it details how in silence you can display true feelings for this one important person in your life they both do. and the quote 'words are very unnecessary, they can only do harm.' translates to don't speak just let me see you and enjoy being with you. 'words like violence.' says words are violent and they shouldn't be involved in deep and true love. and 'painful to me, pierce right through me.' means the words pierce him deeply. and he just wants quietness so he can enjoy being with this girl. and in the moment. this song along with precious is my favorite.

    I think this song is about depeche not wanting to go through talking. All he wants is silence because all talking causes is harmand nothing. When he talks about vows being spoken to be broken he means that whenever people in relationships go through and argument. They end up breaking all the vows they said when getting angry.

    The author of this song believes that love cannot be found in the words that you say to someone, but rather in the physical and sexual experiences you share with them. He is deeply in love with his partner, whom he calls his "little girl", as evidenced by how he calls her "all I ever wanted, all I ever needed". He simply wants to enjoy holding her and being with her and doesn't want either of them to speak, for fear of disturbing the mood. In the song, he is simultaneous hushing her while, ironically, telling her how much he loves her.
