Ready For Love - India Arie

I am ready for love,
why are you hiding from me
I'd quickly give my freedom
to be held in your captivity

I am ready for love,
all of the joy and the pain
and all the time that it takes
just to stay in your good grace

lately I've been thinking maybe you're not
ready for me,
Maybe you think I need to learn maturity
they say watch what you ask for 'cuz you might receive
but if you ask me tomorrow, I'll say the same thing

I am ready for love,
would you please lend me your ear
I promise I won't complain
I just need you to acknowledge I am here

If you give me half a chance
I'll prove this to you
I will be patient, kind, faithful and true
to a man who loves music
a man who loves art
respect the spirit world and thinks with his heart

I am ready for love
if you'll take me in your hands
I will learn what you teach
and do the best that I can

I am ready for love
here with an offering of my voice
my eyes, my soul, my mind
tell me what is enough
to prove I am ready for love

I am ready...

A história que cada música tem. lembro-me de ouvir "the Truth" de India Arie, uma versão acústica há 2 anos atrás e me sentir incrivelmente triste por fazer lembar pessoas e sentimentos que nos deixam saudade.
Há alturas e fases para todas a canções e se a ouves pela mesma razão do que eu, só me resta esperar que encontres o que procuras.
Uma pessoa com o teu sorriso merece ser feliz
