Love Like A Fountain



I could climb every mountain
For your love is like a fountain
Let it shower down over me
Soak me to the bone yeah
Pour all over me
Am I coming home yeah

I could climb every mountain
For your love is like a fountain
Let it shower down over me
Soak me to the bone yeah
Pour all over me
Am I coming home yeah

I could glide across the ocean
For your love rubs like a lotion
Let it shower down over me
Soak me to the bone yeah
Pour all over me
Am I coming home yeah

Shower down over me
Am I coming home yeah
Pour all over me
Am I coming home yeah
Your love is like a fountain
For your love
Is like a fountain

Details:

Starting on Christmas Eve after coming out of Strangeways, Ian completed Love Like A Fountain within a few days in his eight track studio. With a shuffling rhythm and Superstition-esque melody riding over the bubbling old-skool house synths, this is Ian's ode to Acid House. In live performances, he sometimes improvised with words ending in '-ation', a feature of Stevie Wonder's 'Pastime Paradise':
