He is my lord, He is my saviour and He rewards my good behavior
My secret soul, I know He's seen it He says, come here baby and
kiss me like you mean it He calls me baby, says kiss me like you mean it
He is my life and my salvation He's always right, He's always patient
I pinch myself It's like I'm dreaming it... He is my love, He's always been it...

    General CommentActually, in the 69 Love Songs booklet, Stephin Merritt says the song is "more about a B & D [bondage and domination] relationship."

    General Commenti love the middle part where the singer hums the tune for a bit. great song.

    the cool part is that she sounds like she is singing it about God, not about her lover.

    General CommentSuch a cute song! Listening to this always makes me happy, even if the singer does sound a little to obsessed with "him."

    General CommentI think this song is about Jesus seducing a naive young lad or lady.

    General CommentSeconding the BDSM interpretation. Stephin is very naughty for having written this and deserves to be spanked by nuns.
