MESSIAH MINE: In the early 20th century when western men were visiting the far east many asian women saw them as a way of escaping the poor and desperate situation many of them were in. If the man agreed to marry her and take her away to a better life she would call him Messiah Mine.

Lyrics

Messiah Mine by Kadium

The barman said “hey boy what will it be?”
“Something long, something cold?”
Something to take away whatever waterlogged your day
Put you right back on the ball, down here we’ve got it all

Then in a moment she was next to me
While the piano man played Cole
That look upon her face said this would be no cold embrace
Then she whispered in my ear, “my dreams start right here”

Messiah mine will you rescue me
From this life without love
Don’t leave me caught up in reality
And like some quiet storm, lift me up and take me home

I learned her life was like some open wound
That she swore would never heal
All those same old lies, all those telephone goodbyes
Like some picture book, she said take one look

Messiah mine will you rescue me
From this life without love
Don’t leave me caught up in reality
And like some quiet storm, lift me up and take me home
