My man walks on hands and knees
I am his first and only child
He is mine
He is my saint
He brings me roses and incense
And he closes my mind
He closes my mind
With real love
Real love
Real love
Real love
I will kiss the ground
Where he left a taste
of his strength of mind
Take me down
Take me down now
Take me down
Into the cold dead earth
Take me down
Take me down there
In your hands again
Take me down
Take me down
With real love
Real love
Real love
Real love
When I dream that sweet dream
When I forget where I am
I will always remember
Your hand on my shoulder
Pulling me down
Pulling me down
Into the cold dead earth
Take me down
Take me down
Take me down
Take me down there
With real love
Real love
Real love
Real love

    General CommentSee my analysis of "Blind Love" for my stronger opinions. Being in an album called Children of God dealing with misguided love and religious hypocrisy, this has the dual nature of being a slavish love song to a dead, abusive lover from a subservient and blindly obsessed widow(er), or the hymn of a religious fanatic to whatever god they praise (probably Christ), saying that the only true love is that of their deity, who they blindly follow to maniacal lengths.
