"Sing It Back" as written by Justine Elinor/brydon Frischmann and Roisin Murphy....
When you are ready, I will surrender
Take me and do as you will
Have what you want, your way's always the best way
I have succumbed to this passive sensation
Peacefully falling away
I am the zombie your wish will command me
Laugh as I fall to my knees

Can I control this empty delusion?
Lost in the fire below
And you come running your eyes will be open
And when you come back, I'll be as you want me
Only so eager to please
My little song will keep you beside me
Thinking your name as I sing

(Sing it back to me)
(Sing it back to me)

No, you can't help it if you have been tempted
By fruit hanging ripe on the tree
And I feel useless
Don't care what the truth is
You will be here come the day
Truth do you hear me?
Don't try to come near me
So tired I sleep through the lie
If you desire to lay here beside me
Come to my sweet melody

Sing it back to me (sing it)
Bring it back (sing it)
Sing it back (sing it)
Bring it back
Sing it back to me

(Sing it, sing it, sing it)
(Sing it back to me)

Bring it back
Sing it back
Bring it back
Sing it back to me

    General CommentPassion. Lust. Desire. Devotion.

    There's a sense of devotion in the words.. "I am the zombie your wish will command me" but that could just be a satire. And there's also a sense of frivolity, Spontanious lust.

    It's a great song and she has a GREAT voice, I love that Jazzfunk sound. A song you could easily choreograph perhaps the repitition does this, but it's also a very sexy song.

    that's a biblical reference, this song could be about the devil. the drums are reminiscent of 'sympathy'. just a though :)
