Put away my black book
Throw it on the fire
Getting out the side door
You are my one desire
Baby when you hold me
I feel see you're everything
Baby when you touch me
I need nothing no more
Put away my black book

Put in on the fire
Don't give up on me Lord
Take my spirit higher
Nothing can behold me

Don't put me on the fire
Baby when you hold me
I will see no fear
Baby when you touch me
You see it in my eyes
Put away my black book

Put it on the fire
I've made up my mind
I got nothing to hide
I've made up my mind
I got nothing to hide

Give me my soul [Repeat: x7]
Give you my soul
Give me my soul
Give you my soul [Repeat: x10]
Give you
Give you my soul [Repeat: x4]

    General CommentI know Blur isn't exactly a Christian/Religious band, but I feel like you can really give this song a Christian meaning. I feel like the Black Book symbolizes all of our anger and depression, everything that makes us sad in life. And how we need to put it away. Leave behind our Black Book. And give the lord our soul, let him take control of our life.
