One of my favourite songs - Love Me

Friday, September 21, 2007

ZY's on night shift tonight, and I left Ch with my mil so that I can concentrate on marking my Prelim exam scripts. Listening to class 95, I hear this song- Love Me. It's one of my favourite songs, and it never fails to get me emotional (very often, ending up with tears in my eyes) when I listen to it. Such beautiful and meaningful lyrics...


Love Me (by Collin Raye)

I read a note by my grandma wrote back in 1923
Grandpa kept it in his coat and he showed it once to me
He said, Boy, you might not understand.
But a long, long time ago...
Grandma's daddy didn't like me none
But I love your grandma so.

We had this crazy plan to meet and run away together.
Get married in the first town we came to and live forever.
But nailed to the tree where we were supposed to meet instead
I found this letter and this is what it said.

If you get there before I do
Don't give up on me.
I'll meet you when my chores are through
I don't know how long I'll be.
But I'm not gonna let you down.
Darling wait and see
And between now and then
Till I see you again
I'll be loving you, Love me.

I read those words just hours before my grandma passed away.
In the doorway of the church where me and grandpa stopped to pray.
I know I've never seen him cry in all my 15 years.
But as he said these words to her
His eyes filled up with tears.

If you get there before I do
Don't give up on me.
I'll meet you when my chores are through
I don't know how long I'll be.
But I'm not gonna let you down.
Darling wait and see
Between now and then
Till I see you again
I'll be loving you, Love me.
