Notes

Alan Wilder confirms 'Higher Love' was included on the short-list for potential Songs Of Faith And Devotion singles:

"We would usually reach a consensus to form a short-list of potential singles. For example, Higher Love was on this list for the SOFAD singles but never made it and there were differences of opinion about in which order they should appear. Dave felt very strongly that Condemnation should have been the first single but he was out-voted. I wanted Walking in My Shoes as a second single and got my way but I really wanted the original version of In Your Room [instead of the Zephyr Mix]. This is all a good example of the problems of democracy - somebody usually ends up disappointed."[1]

Q&A from Alan Wilder's Shunt:

From: Piero Manzo

Q: What can you tell me about the drum track on 'Higher Love' that is so similar to the one in 'So Cruel' by U2 (Achtung Baby).

A: Didn't Flood work on both LP's?.....

Lyrics


Higher Love

I can taste more than feel

This burning inside is so real

I can almost lay my hands upon

The warm glow that lingers on


Moved, lifted higher

Moved, my soul's on fire

Moved, by a higher love


I surrender all control

To the desire that consumes me whole

And leads me by the hand to infinity

That lies in wait at the heart of me


Moved, lifted higher

Moved, my soul's on fire

Moved, by a higher love


Heaven bound on the wings of love

There's so much that you can rise above


Moved, lifted higher

Moved, by a higher love

By a higher love


I surrender heart and soul

Sacrificed to a higher goal


Moved, by a higher love

By a higher love
