He came riding fast like a phoenix out of fire flames
He came dressed in black with a cross bearing my name
He came bathed in light and the splendor and glory
I can't believe what the lord has finally sent me

He said dance for me, fanciulla gentile
He said laugh awhile, I can make your heart feel
He said fly with me, touch the face of the true God
And then cry with joy at the depth of my love

'Cause I've prayed days, I've prayed nights
For the lord just to send me home some sign
I've looked long, I've looked far
To bring peace to my black and empty heart

Ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, aaaaaah !

My love will stay 'till the river bed run dry
And my love lasts long as the sunshine blue sky
I love him longer as each damn day goes
The man is gone and heaven only knows

'Cause I've cried days, I've cried nights
For the lord just to send me home some sign
Is he near ? is he far ?
Bring peace to my black and empty heart
So long day, so long night
Oh Lord, be near me tonight
Is he near ? is he far ?
Bring peace to my black and empty heart.

Hey, you! Stop squeezing PJ while she's trying to record her vocal! {#Lol}
 
Yeah.....did sound like someone came up & goosed her!

a strange reaction... at first I didn't like it, but as the song continued I started to dig it... now I'm not quite sure.
Geeze, I wish she'd hurry up & get it over with.

PJ Harvey both thrills and terrifies me. Always love to hear her music.  Not sure what's up with the squeaking and yelping through.
PJ is awesome.
Do not want.

Love, love, L O V E it.

I find it hilarious! 

Seriously.  That's ROFL material.  Probably not what she was after, but...

Obviously the average RP-listener does not understand PJ Harvey\'s way of putting more into a song than the usual stuff you\'re used to. At least that\'s my impression from comments like \"my teeth hurt\". What a comment! :( Go to bed, my little puppies! This is real stuff! You can\'t take it!
YUCK! I think the song would be okay without her stupid yelps. What is that all about?? It\'s not as bad as a 1 however; I give it a 4.
Augggh. I had to give it a 1 since I didn\'t see a number assigned to \"leave the room for its entirety\" Not that I globally hate PJ Harvey, but I globally hate this song.
yeah, the little yelps don\'t add to this song, that\'s for sure. But I\'d listen to other songs of hers, though .....

Ugh! Is there any way to fast forward?
this is great! PJ Harvey is an artist i\'ve just recently begun listening to.
I like the guitar work in this, but could do without the vocals.
