    Well, I know that the bass guitar is not played in this song, and that the bass line to it is mostly root-fifth, but, how many people out there know this song from Depeche Mode? I was reminded of this song after posting to the "The Guy's Turn" thread in Off-Topic. In recent memory, I can't think of a song that so accurately and beautifully describes so many people's feelings toward their significant others. Is there anybody else who has any thoughts in regards to this song?

    I'll post the lyrics if there is anyone not familiar with it.
