The B-side to ‘I Feel You’ is “One Caress”, which is a Martin Gore vocal track from Songs of Faith and Devotion. In the USA, Sire / Reprise released “One Caress” as a promo-only single. One promo copy has the original version, and the other has the version from Songs of Faith and Devotion Live. There is no remix for the song. There is also a music video for “One Caress”, directed by Kevin Kerslake, that was filmed during one of the off-days of the Devotional Tour in the US. It was a promo-only video that was later released on The Videos 86>98. Prior to its inclusion on The Videos 86>98, the music video for “One Caress” was frequently broadcast on MTV’s Alternative Rock video block 120 Minutes and Sky-1.


Well I’m down on my knees again
And I pray to the only one
Who has the strength
To bear the pain
To forgive all the things that I’ve done

Oh girl
Lead me into your darkness
When this world is trying it’s hardest
To leave me unimpressed
Just one caress
From you and I’m blessed

When you think you’ve tried every road
Every avenue
Take one more look
At what you found old
And in it you’ll find something new

I’m shying from the light
I always loved the night
And now you offer me eternal darkness

I have to believe that sin
Can make a better man
It’s the mood that I am in
That’s left us back where we began
