Description

"I Belong To You" has a slow rhythm. The song's middle section[3] is sung in French[3] and the latter section includes a bass clarinet solo.[4]

Information

When the name of this song was released on musewire, it was appended with "(+Mon Coeur S'Ouvre A Ta Voix)",[1] which translates from French into "My Heart Opens Itself To Your Voice", and is the name of an aria from Camille Saint-Saëns' opera Samson and Delilah. An operatic partial cover of this song is included as the interlude in "I Belong to You".

The song makes several self references, namely "Guiding Light" and "Overdue", the common use of the word "soul" in Matt's lyrics, and the band name, "Muse" itself.

According to Chris, the song's middle-section was inspired by the opera "Samson and Delilah". The song, which he says has a different rythmic feel, is therefore one of the more unusual songs of the album, but has become one of his personal favourites on The Resistance.[5]

Additional Information

Matt can be heard popping his mouth with his finger right before the verses and the chorus. This is also shown on "The Making Of The Resistance" DVD.

Alternative Versions

An alternative version of "I Belong to You" will be featured in the soundtrack of the film New Moon, the sequel to Twilight.[6]

Lyrics

When these pillars get pulled down

It will be you who wears the crown And I'll owe everything to you

How much pain has cracked your soul? How much love would make you whole? You're my guiding lightning strike

I can't find the words to say They're overdue I've traveled half the world to say "I belong to you"

And she attacks me like a Leo When my heart is split like Rio But I assure you my debts are real

I can't find the words to say When I'm confused I've traveled half the world to say "You are my mu..."

[Mon Cœur S'ouvre à Ta Voix] (My heart opens itself to your voice) Ah! Réponds, (Ah! Respond!) Réponds à ma tendresse (Respond to my tenderness) Verse-moi, verse-moi l'ivresse! (Pour out to me, pour out to me the drunkenness!) Réponds à ma tendresse! (Respond to my tenderness!) Réponds à ma tendresse! (Respond to my tenderness!) Ah! Verse-moi l'ivresse! (Ah! Pour out to me the drunkenness!)

Verse-moi, verse-moi l'ivresse! (Pour out to me, pour out to me the drunkenness!) Réponds à ma tendresse! (Respond to my tenderness!) Réponds à ma tendresse! (Respond to my tenderness!) Ah! Verse-moi l'ivresse! (Ah! Pour out to me the drunkenness!)


I belong I belong to you alone

"...use"

Woo!

I can't find the words to say They're overdue I've traveled half the world to say "I belong to you"

New Moon remix

When these pillars get pulled down

It will be you who wears the crown And I'll owe everything to you

How much pain has cracked your soul? How much love would make you whole? You're my guiding lightning strike

I can't find the words to say They're overdue I've traveled half the world to say "I belong to you"

And she attacks me like a Leo When my heart is split like Rio But I assure you my debts are real

I can't find the words to say When I'm confused I've traveled half the world to say "You are my muse"

I can't find the words to say They're overdue I've traveled half the world to say "I belong to you"
