"To Bring You My Love" as written by and Polly Jean Harvey....
I was born in the desert
I been down for years
Jesus, come closer
I think my time is near
And I've traveled over
Dry earth and floods
Hell and high water
To bring you my love

Climbed over mountains
Traveled the sea
Cast down off heaven
Cast down on my knees
I've lain with the devil
Cursed god above
Forsaken heaven

To bring you my love
To bring you my love
To bring you my love
To bring you my love

I know he's gonna be here
You know he's gonna be here
Yeah alright

Forsaking heaven
Curse god above
Lay with the devil
Bring you my love

To bring you my love
To bring you my love
To bring you my love

    General CommentShe is indeed fantastic, severedvox.

    Love can make you do the craziest things. Things you could never picture yourself doing for anything or anyone before you've reached this point where there's only one thing that keeps you going - your love - the only thing or person you have left and which you refuse to give up on. Maybe there's just no room for doubts in your heart when it's so filled with this kind of passionate love that tends to make you invincible and blinded at the same time.

    Likes she sings, she's "right", and has done everything to bring you her love.

    General CommentI was listening to this just now and it hit me that there may be some sort of sarcastic tone regarding religion. I used to think it was just a very intense love song to an unknown subject, but now I think it might be to God, saying she was bringing her love to him, suffering greatly in the process - so much that she had to go through hell, sleep with the devil, etc..

    I might be completely wrong here (:

    General Commentthis makes "I wanna be adored" sound like a lullaby. for just the ten songs on To Bring You My Love, she was hauntingly perfect, and this is perhaps the best album opener ever, the production is fantastic
