Lyrics

You had something to hide
Should have hidden it, shouldn't you
Now you're not satisfied
With what you're being put through
It's just time to pay the price
For not listening to advice
And deciding in your youth
On the policy of truth

Things could be so different now
It used to be so civilised
You will always wonder how
It could have been if you'd only lied
It's too late to change events
It's time to face the consequence
For delivering the proof
In the policy of truth

Never again is what you swore
The time before
Never again is what you swore
The time before

Now you're standing there tongue tied
You'd better learn your lesson well
Hide what you have to hide
And tell what you have to tell
You'll see your problems multiplied
If you continually decide
To faithfully pursue
The policy of truth

Never again is what you swore
The time before
Never again is what you swore
The time before

I lost my husband a little over a year ago. I have such happy memories of us together and this song. Brings me right back to a time and place where we were madly in love and happy with each other and being together. It's almost too much for me to bare.... RIP Bill, I miss you more than any words could ever say. Forever in my heart.

Lyrics :
You had something to hide
Should have hidden it, shouldn't you
Now you're not satisfied
With what you're being put through
It's just time to pay the price
For not listening to advice
And deciding in your youth
On the policy of truth
Things could be so different now
It used to be so civilised
You will always wonder how
It could have been if you'd only lied
It's too late to change events
It's time to face the consequence
For delivering the proof
In the policy of truth
Never again
Is what you swore
The time before
Never again
Is what you swore
The time before
Now you're standing there tongue tied
You'd better learn your lesson well
Hide what you have to hide
And tell what you have to tell
You'll see your problems multiplied
If you continually decide
To faithfully pursue
The policy of truth
Never again
Is what you swore
The time before
Never again
Is what you swore
The time before

I was in London when this came out. I went to Our Price Music and bought the cassette, put it in my walkman, and thanks to auto reverse, I listened to it non-stop for about a month . greatest times of my life. the 80s were the high point of popular music. And I think this album is the high point of Depeche Mode. An absolute masterpiece.

This song was in my head for almost 30 years without me knowing who sang it and what was the name of this song. Finally spent hours on google trying to figure out the lyrics that i remembered and found it! Im from NYC and grew up 100% on rap but man is this song awesome. Love Depeche mode!
