With You I'm Born Again by Billy Preston and Syreeta Wright is featured in Duets, the fourth episode of Season Two. It is sung by Finn and Rachel.
They hope that by losing the duet competition, they will help Sam feel more accepted in the New Directions. Will is unimpressed and disappointed, and, this being the reaction they were hoping for. They step aside after their performance, pretending that they hope they can still win, and make way for Quinn and Sam to win the prize. The New Directions looked shocked at Finn and Rachel performing such a song.
This song was known as 'offensive' because the song is about being "born again" through each other's touch. Finn and Rachel used their costumes (priest and a Catholic girl) to make religious references which made it offensive to some students.
Come give me your sweetness (Finn: Ohh, ohh)
Now there's you, there is no weakness (Finn: Now there's you, there is no weakness)
Lying safe within your arms
I'm born again (Finn: Woman, don't you know with you I'm born again)
Rachel and Finn:
I was half, not whole
In step with none
Reaching through this world
In need of one
Come show me your kindness
In your arms I know I'll find this
(Finn: Woman), don't you know
With you I'm born again
Lying safe with you I'm born again
