"Beyond Love" as written by and Matt Johnson....
Move away from the window
And into the light
There are some things in this life
That you just can't fight
It's as if the spirits above
Have cast a little spell upon us
It's as if heaven above
Is beckoning us
So let us take off our crosses
And lay them in a tin
And let our weakness become virtue
Instead of sin
Our bodies stand naked
As the day they were born
And tremble like animals
Before a coming storm

Take me beyond love
Up to something above
Upon this bed
Between these sheets
Take me to a happiness
Beyond human reach

The force of life
Is rushing though our veins
In and out like the tide
It comes in waves
The drops of semen
And the clots of blood
Which may, one day
Become like us
With outstretched hands
Reaching beyond love
And up to something above

Before our juices run cold
And our flesh grows old
Let me feed upon your breast
And draw closer to your soul
Let me stay with you tonight
And I'll offer you my world
I'll take you to the angels
If you'll take me to myself

Take me beyond love
Up to something above
Upon this bed
Between these sheets
Take me to a happiness
Beyond human reach
Beyond the grasp of lust
Beyond the need for trust
Beyond the gaze of the sick and the lame
Beyond the stench of human pain

    General CommentWow! Matt Johnson is an incredible singer/songwriter.
    Have you ever Really listened to this song........Chills allover me.

    I will never forget seeing The The at the Filmore in San Francisco in 1989 on a first date with my then girlfriend and now my wife and mother of 3 boys. :O)

    I think The The and Matt Johnson might be my all time favorite....... never gets old.
