Depeche Mode – Walking In My Shoes

Official music video 'Walking In My Shoes' (Remastered) per­formed by 'Depeche Mode' taken from the album 'Songs Of Faith And Devotion' (1993). Directed by Anton Cobijn.

Lyrics:

I would tell you about the things they put me through
The pain I've been sub­jec­ted to
But the Lord him­self 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
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
