Love Spreads (5:47)

Cover of Second Coming

From Second Coming and 34 other releases

Described by Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie as “The greatest comeback song ever”, the Roses didn’t pull any punches by making this their first release after five years. This still had the religiously-fuelled lyrics heard in their earlier material, with those familiar hushed vocals from Ian Brown, and that distinctive Reni/Mani underbelly groove. When the song came out, everyone thought it had been penned by Brown, the lyrics were so much in his style (the lyrics ponder Jesus being a black woman, and in John Squire’s words are about “the hyjacking of religion”). It was actually Squire who wrote this by himself.

Love spreads her arms, waits there for the nails
I forgive you, boy, I will prevail
Too much to take, come cross to bear
I'm hiding in the trees with a picnic, she's over there, yeah
