Hostage Of Love

Album: Slipway Fires (2008)
  • Singer and chief songwriter Johnny Borrell explained to the London Times November 8, 2008 why he wrote this song, which is full of religious imagery: "I was learning a bit about Catholicism. I was very interested in the concept that we're ordinary sinners." Borrell added: "What it's saying in that song is, my god is my lover and my lover is my god. This bond that we have, that our love has created, is our religion."
