Personal Jesus


I was never a big fan of Depeche Mode...was never a big "synth" fan....I like my music real and not processed but to each their own I guess...One of their songs was "Personal Jesus" which they wrote as an "ode" to being totally dependant on someone in a relationship and I hated it.....HOWEVER when Johnny Cash did it it transformed the song and me as to its meaning...I see it now as a love song,kinda spititual but for someone you care about....no matter what...you are always there for them...You'll always be there for them...and deliver for them....they can believe in you...because you will always prove it to them...no matter how good or bad things are...they are never alone

Thanks Johnny...as I said in a previous blog.....we lost a genius when you passed away

Personal Jesus

Your own personal Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers
Someone who cares

Your own personal Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers
Someone who's there

Feeling unknown
And you're all alone
Flesh and bone
By the telephone
Lift up the reciever
I'll make you a believer

Take second best
Put me to the test
Things on your chest
You need to confess
I will deliver
You know Im a forgiver

Reach out and touch faith
Reach out and touch faith

Your own personal Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers
Someone who cares

Your own personal Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers
Someone to care

Feeling unknown
And you're all alone
Flesh and bone
By the telephone
Lift up the reciever
I'll make you a believer
I will deliver
You know Im a forgiver

Reach out and touch faith
Reach out and touch faith
Reach out and touch faith

(and by the way...Im NOT calling myself Jesus here lol.....in case some smart a*sess think I am.....just the King of Kings lol !!!)

P.S...When I was younger I really did think I was called Jesus.....every time I met people or walked into a room they all said ...."Oh JESUS....".....Sorry I really could not resist that one !!!

Be lucky all......and be there for those you care about
