about

Let You Love Me.

Letting someone actually see you and allowing yourself to be vulnerable enough to let someone love you is one of the hardest things to do. Being so vulnerable and knowing that your lover/partner has free will and can walk out the door at any moment is often too much for most of us to bear.

This intimate tune is a love song to Monique’s husband. With all the differences she sees in the two of them and all the differences the world has said exist in them is delicately challenged in this song. She wants to surrender- and it is the hardest thing she’s ever had to do.

lyrics

let you love me

don't you see
I am molten hearted
can't you feel
there's a war inside my blood
let me leave this armor
rusting in the field
of our love

don't you leave
when I say it's over
don't believe
that I chipped my shoulder
you will be my partner
hold me, hold me, love revealed

please forgive my heart
cos it fears it won't survive

I want to let you love me
I want to let you love me
oh the danger that I feel
I just want to let you love me

take my hand
I will let you lead me
slow like sand
I will let you see me
lay my cards down I will yield

please forgive my heart
cos it fears it won't survive

I want to let you love me
I want to let you love me
oh the danger that I feel
I just want to let you love me

Ohh ohh ohh ohh
So we can be together

be my man
when I crash and burn
take a stand
when I test your boundaries
will I ever learn?
