I don't need your answered prayers
Or the chains your lover wears
I don't need your rings of gold
Or the secrets that you hold
Lift me up,
Lift me up and I'll fall with you lift me up
Let your love lift me up

I don't need your sacred vow
Or the promise tomorrow brings
Veiled behind the morning clouds
I'll take the fate the daylight brings
Lift me up, darling
Lift me up and I'll fall with you lift me up
Let your love lift me up

When the morning bright
Lifts away this night
In the light above
We will find our love, we will find our love

Your skin, your hand upon my neck
This skin, your fingers on my skin
This kiss, this heartbeat, this breath
This heart, this heart, this wilderness
Lift me up, darling
Lift me up and I'll fall with your lift me up
Let your love lift me up

    General CommentPlayed at the end of the movie Limbo, this song ads a beautiful melancholy depth to an already potent moment. I see no connection between song and movie meanings however.

    To me the song calls for love in the immediate and the short term (fate the daylight brings, fingers on skin, this heartbeat, this breath), as opposed to tradition and the long term (rings of gold, sacred vow, secrets, chains).

    Is the line in the chorus "I'll fall with you" or "I'll follow you"?
