"Send His Love To Me" as written by and Polly Jean Harvey....
Lover had to leave me
Cross the desert plain
Turned to me, his lady
Tells me "lover wait"

Calling Jesus, please
Send his love to me

Oh, wind and rain may haunt me
Look to the north and pray
Send me, please, his kisses
Send them home today

I'm begging Jesus, please
Send his love to me

Left alone in desert
This house becomes a hell
This love becomes a tether
This room becomes a cell

Mummy, Daddy, please
Send him back to me

How long must I suffer?
Dear God, I've served my time
This love becomes my torture
This love, my only crime

Oh lover please release me
My arms too weak to grip
My eyes to dry for weeping
My lips too dry to kiss

Calling Jesus, please
Send his love to me

I'm begging Jesus, please
Send his love to me

    General CommentOh yeah. And this song, to me, is about waiting. Waiting and distance and the pain it brings. But we'll stick together no matter what.

    General CommentAlong with The Dancer, it's about waiting and holding out for someone...either a lover you haven't met yet or once that went away, I'm not quite sure which.
