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,

They can only do harm.

NOTES.
1.  Depeche Mode play this live in Cm.  This interpretation is a simplification of the chords it 
includes a capo on 1 and the repetitive riff.
2.  “…In 1990, a promotional video for "Enjoy the Silence" was shot by French TV (for the TV Show 
"Champs-Élysées" with Michel Drucker) featuring Depeche Mode lip-synching the song while standing atop 
the World Trade Center at the WTC rooftop World observatory, south Tower #2. …”
