I don't need your answered prayers
Or the chains your lover wears
I don't need your rings of gold
Or the secrets that you hold
Lift me up,
Lift me up and I'll fall with you lift me up
Let your love lift me up

I don't need your sacred vow
Or the promise tomorrow brings
Veiled behind the morning clouds
I'll take the fate the daylight brings
Lift me up, darling
Lift me up and I'll fall with you lift me up
Let your love lift me up

When the morning bright
Lifts away this night
In the light above
We will find our love, we will find our love

Your skin, your hand upon my neck
This skin, your fingers on my skin
This kiss, this heartbeat, this breath
This heart, this heart, this wilderness
Lift me up, darling
Lift me up and I'll fall with your lift me up
Let your love lift me up

    General CommentOne comment? Really? I heard this from the Essential Collection, and it immediately grabbed my interest. I heard it on what was one of the shittiest days of my entire life. On the way to school I saw my cat dead on the side of the road, and everything else in the day went wrong too. This and Yesterday by The Beatles were the two songs that I discovered that were really uplifting (irresistible pun). One of Springsteen's greatest works. It's a shame there are only a couple bands producing good music these days.
