What it is?

Today’s song is the song Take My Hand by Moloko that was a B-side to the song Forever More from their 2003 music album Statues:

What is it about?

This is what Wikipedia says about this song:

In contrast to the tragic view of love on Statues, the song “Take My Hand”, a relatively upbeat love song, was an outtake.

The song had a prominent brass scoring, jazz-funk bass line and wistful piano, as well as a confident multitracked delivery by Murphy that displays her extraordinary vocal technique.

“Take My Hand” is available as a B-side to “Forever More”, and was donated to War Child to help the charity raise money for children affected by war.[9]

This is how Moloko describes this video:

Lyrics (By Google Search)

Pins, needles, and butterflies
Into deeper pools I dive
To re-emerge
Almost submerged
Ultraviolet
Is it sleight of hand
Or the surest touch
You caught me as I fell
And put me on a pedestal
Can you be sure that’s right?
My king of hearts
Are we the only two
To feel so powerless
And yet so powerful
And all at once
We are all at one
So take my hand and
We’ll explore a land of mellow truthfulness
Something deep in you
Touches something
So deep in me
And suddenly destiny
Lays down in front of me
It’s what I
Was designed to do
To touch something so deep in you
And suddenly awake sleeping sensitivity
I was a runaway
But what was I running too
You stopped me in my tracks
When I turned back
All I could see is you
The wind
telling tales of golden histories
Whispering among the trees
Of heaven and its mysteries
And soon
We two will commune
Like the spheres of sun and moon
The perfume of the rose in bloom
Something deep in you
Touches something
So deep in me
And suddenly destiny
Lays down in front of me
It’s what I
Was designed to do
To touch something so deep in you
Suddenly awake sleeping sensitivity…

My Thoughts

Take My Hand is among my favorite Moloko songs as are the songs I Want You, Dominoid (the music video version which is better than the album version in my opinion), et cetera.
