I was born, I was born to sing for you
I didn't have a choice but to lift you up
And sing whatever song you wanted me to
I give you back my voice from the womb
My first cry, it was a joyful noise, oh, oh
It has the same themes as Nick Caves lecture he gave on the 'Love Song'
'The love song is perhaps the truest and most distinctive human gift for recognizing God and a gift that God himself needs. God gave us this gift in order that we speak and sing Him alive because God lives within communication.'
It is as if Nick, has written the answer to why Bono has written 'Magnificent', why it is a great 'Love Song'. Although I think for Nick it maybe a bit blatant, to obvious.
I wonder what we would get if Nick Cave collaborated with Brian Eno.....
