"Personal Jesus" as written by and Martin Lee Gore....
Your own personal Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers
Someone who cares
Your own personal Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers
Someone who's there
Feeling unknown
And you're all alone
Flesh and bone
By the telephone
Lift up the receiver
I'll make you a believer
Take second best
Put me to the test
Things on your chest
You need to confess

I will deliver
You know I'm a forgiver
Reach out and touch faith
Reach out and touch faith
Your own personal Jesus

Feeling unknown
And you're all alone
Flesh and bone
By the telephone
Lift up the receiver
I'll make you a believer

I will deliver
You know I'm a forgiver
Reach out and touch faith
Your own personal Jesus
Reach out and touch faith

    General Commenti agree Manson's cover was horrible. I like LLKs better. I like it better than the original too.

    General CommentThis song was written about Priscilla Presley's book "Elivs & Me" where she describes their relationship and how for several years he was her father, lover and "quite nearly God"
