About Vow

"Vow" is a song by alternative rock band Garbage. It was released as their debut single in early 1995 by Discordant, a label set up by Mushroom Records to launch the group, and Almo Sounds in North America. "Vow" was quietly licensed to a Volume magazine/CD sampler publication at the end of 1994; it was subsequently picked up and broadcast by BBC Radio 1 DJs Steve Lamacq and John Peel, and then playlisted by modern rock radio stations in Los Angeles and Seattle. "Vow" generated such significant buzz through positive reviews and word-of-mouth that it was eventually chosen as Garbage's first single release. After a low-key independent record label pressing in the United Kingdom, where it was packaged in a very limited edition logo embossed aluminium case, "Vow" went on to top the alternative charts in Australia and register on the Hot 100 singles chart in the United States. The song began as a demo during sessions between band members Butch Vig, Duke Erikson and Steve Marker, and the composition finished after singer Shirley Manson joined the band. The lyrics for "Vow" deal with themes of revenge and retaliation, and were inspired by a newspaper article on domestic abuse. In 2007, "Vow" was remastered and included as the opening track on Garbage's greatest hits compilation, Absolute Garbage.

I can't use what I can't abuse 
And I can't stop when it comes to you 
You burned me out but I'm back at your door like Joan of Arc coming 
Back for more 

[Chorus]
I nearly died 
I nearly died 
I nearly died 
I came to cut you up 
I came to knock you down 
I came around to tear your little world apart I came to shut you up 
I came to drag you down 
I came around to tear your little world apart and break your soul apart 

You burn and burn to get under my skin 
You've gone too far now I won't give in 
You crucified me but I'm back in your bed like Jesus Christ coming 
Back from the dead 

[Chorus: x2]

Tear your little world apart 
And break your soul apart 
I can't stop when it comes to you 
I can't stop when it comes to you 
When it comes to you 
When it comes to you
