Here's my version of "Enjoy the Silence". I've transcribed this version
in a slightly different key than the original tune - I also transcribed
this version for SOLO acoustic guitar, so if you want to play this song
in it's original key just use a capo. You can always use other voicings
of these chords to make the song sound more authentic. I like using SUS
Chords because they allow the tune to remain more open sounding - since
SUS chords don't typically dictate a Major or Minor feel they actually
allow the player to dictate the songs mood (which can easily be changed
to a Minor feel with the addition of 1-note in the given Sus-2 chords).
The original tune uses Minor chords instead of SUS chords.

Depeche Mode - Enjoy the Silence

[Intro] [Bsus2] [Dm]
[Bsus2]Words like violence
[Dm]Break the silence
[G]Come crashing in - Into my little world
[Bsus2]Painful to me
[Dm]Pierce right through me
[G]Can't you understand - Oh my little girl
[Em]All I ever wanted
[G]All I ever needed
Is [Bsus2]here in my [Asus2]arms
[Em]Words are very [G]unnecessary
[Bsus2]They can only do [Bbsus2]harm
[Bsus2] [Dm] [G] 2x
[Bsus2]Vows are spoken
[Dm]To be broken
[G]Feelings are intense - Words are trivial
[Bsus2]Pleasures remain
[Dm]So does the pain
[G]Words are meaningless - And forgettable
[Em]All I ever wanted
[G]All I ever needed
Is [Bsus2]here in my [Asus2]arms
[Em]Words are very [G]unnecessary
[Bsus2]They can only do [Bbsus2]harm
Enjoy the silence

It sounds more or less right, though I'd like to know if there's an alternative G that isn't quite so full sounding?
It doesn't quite fit. Right pitch, but wrong timbre, like a saxophone in a dirge.

I want to post or [tab]
