"Higher Love" as written by and Martin Lee Gore....
I can taste more than feel
This burning inside is so real
I can almost lay my hands upon
The warm glow that lingers on

Moved - lifted higher
Moved - my soul's on fire
Moved - by a higher love

I surrender all control
To the desire that consumes me whole

And leads me by the hand to infinity
That lies in wait at the heart of me

Moved - lifted higher
Moved - my soul's on fire
Moved - by a higher love

Heaven bound on the wings of love
There's so much that you can rise above

Moved - lifted higher
Moved, moved by a higher love
By a higher love

I surrender heart and soul
Sacrificed to a higher goal

Moved, moved by a higher love
By a higher love

    General CommentI really don't see God, nor Jesus Christ at all in this song, but perhaps a Goddess that he is submitting to.

    "I can taste more than feel
    This burning inside is so real
    I can almost lay my hands upon
    The warm glow that lingers on"

    The warm glow that lingers on is a human Goddess. The "burning" is that Martin--the masochist--has already been tortured and is experiencing that burning sensation from being tortured and he is in full submission to his human Goddess...

    "I surrender all control"
    "I surrender heart and soul"

    And he's saying that male submission to a Dominant is a "higher love".
