…and one more thing

I must be in a candy-heart induced delirium, because I wanted to share the lyrics from the song “All I Ask of You” – yes, from the “Phantom of the Opera”. Listen to the song if you can, because the melody’s gorgeous. And yes, you could say the song is cheesy….but if your heart isn’t melted just a little, then you need to rediscover romance, my friend! Not only are these lyrics sung between a man and woman, but they are also a heart’s cry for a loving God to satisfy the soul. So anyway. I promise, this is the extent of the syrupy cheesiness you’ll find on this blog, so relax. Here you are:

No more talk of darkness,
Forget these wide-eyed fears.
I’m here, nothing can harm you –
my words will warm and calm you.

Let me be your freedom,
let daylight dry your tears.
I’m here with you, beside you,
to guard you and to guide you.

Say you love me every waking moment,
turn my head with talk of summertime.

Say you need me with you now and always.
Promise me that all you say is true –
that’s all I ask of you.

Let me be your shelter, let me be your light.
You’re safe: no one will find you –
your fears are far behind you.

All I want is freedom,
a world with no more night –
and you, always beside me,
to hold me and to hide me.

Then say you’ll share with
me one love, one lifetime.
Let me lead you from your solitude.

Say you need me with you here, beside you.
Anywhere you go, let me go too –
Christine, that’s all I ask of you.

Say you’ll share with
me one love, one lifetime.
say the word and I will follow you.

Share each day with
me, each night, each morning.
Say you love me…
You know I do.
Love me – that’s all I ask of you.

Anywhere you go let me go too.
Love me – that’s all I ask of you.

———————————
….all right, you are now free to dust off the sugar coating, and move on with your day!
