God Give Me Strength Lyrics - Elvis Costello

Review The Song (6)



Now I have nothing
So God give me strength
'Cos I'm weak in her wake
And if I'm strong I might still break
And I don't have anything to share
That I won't throw away into the air
That song is sung out
This bell is rung out
She was the light that I'd bless
She took my last chance of happiness
So God give me strength
God give me strength

I can't hold on to her
God give me strength
When the phone doesn't ring
And I'm lost in imagining
sponsored links
Everything that kind of love is worth
As I tumble back down to the earth

That song is sung out
This bell is rung out
She was the light that I'd bless
She took my last chance of happiness
So God give me strength

God if she'd grant me her indulgence and decline
I might as well
Wipe her from my memory
Fracture the spell
As she becomes my enemy

Maybe I was washed out
Like a lip-print on his shirt
See, I'm only human
I want him to hurt
I want him
I want him to hurt

Since I lost the power to pretend
That there could ever be a happy ending
That song is sung out
This bell is rung out
She was the light that I'd bless
She took my last chance of happiness
So God give me strength
God give me strength

GOOD TO KNOW | Reviewer: ROSALINDA | 7/13/11

SO GLAD I FOUND THESE REVIEWS....I SAW THE "MOVIE" AGAIN, LOVE, LOVE LOVE, THE WAY THE FEMALE VOICE SINGS "GOD, GIVE ME STRENGTH." I WAS GOING TO BUY THE SOUND TRACK TO THAT MOVIE AND WHEN I READ ITS NOT THE SAME, SO GLAD I DIDNT BUY IT. THANKS TO ALL THE REVIEWERS.

stirred beyond words | Reviewer: snoewhitedove@yahoo.com | 10/2/07

I saw this movie ("Grace of My Heart") for the first time tonight. Since I heard it was based on the life of one of my favorite songwriters, Carole King, I was drawn to it... and as the story progressed... I was very moved; the highlight for me being this song..."God Give Me Strength"... I immediately searched for the song and found famous voices blandly singing the song without emotion! Horrible! Don't they understand it was the singer's (in the movie) ability to emote coupled with the fact that we've watched her journey that grabs the listener? She connected to the lyrics. She made us believe they weren't just words, but her own personal story of fragility... anguish... pain... She gives a very believable performance. If anyone is intersted, I have the copy sang 'during' the movie. Too bad you can't see her as she sings... stirring to say the least...



Such a heartbreaking song... | Reviewer: Judi | 1/16/05

This song brings me to tears every time I hear it - even when it's sung by Elvis Costello. But as much as I liked the version in "Grace of my Heart," Bette Middler's cover tore my heart out. Such a powerful song deserves to be sung by an equally powerful singer.



Sounds much better not sung by Elvis | Reviewer: Mary De Filippis | 10/21/04

Loved whoever sang it in the movie gave better details twice erased by the net, getting VERY BORED AND ANNOYED would pay for a recording of the woman who sings the song in the movie. That is the only reason I bought the sound track from the movie - The woman singing God Give Me Strength.



Or I'll have to Take It For Myself | Reviewer: Mary or Ariel take your Pick | 10/21/04

I love this song as it was in the movie full of rage by a woman; it sounds a bit homo sung by a man though. I was extremely irritated when I bought the soundtrack expressly because I loved the beautiful rage, beauty and anger in the movie song and then it turned into this wimpy little song on the soundtrack CD. GOOOODDDDDDDDDDD. You should be buried in the chunnel for that!
