More uplifting than implied

Just Let Me Be In Love

My breath is short my heart is beating fast
Everytime I smile at him he's smiling back
If I'm dreaming please just let me sleep
Anyone can see he's too good for me
Oh, give it time, he'll find out soon enough
Just let me have and hold him till he does

What we've got going on is so incredible
This chemistry between us feels so wonderful
But knowing me I'll probably
Find a way to mess it up
Who knows, who cares, right now
Just let me be in love

Don't concern me with reality
Don't convince me he's too heavenly
Forget the future disregard the past
Those are questions I don't wanna ask
To my heart, all that matters is tonight
Just let me live this moment in his eyes

What we've got going on is so incredible
This chemistry between us feels so wonderful
But knowing me I'll probably
Find a way to mess it up
Who knows, who cares, right now
Just let me be in love

Changed to apply woman to man rather than man to woman as originally sung by Tracy Byrd.

This song is more upbeat, I think, than the lyrics alone would lead you to believe. I was just listening to the lyrics and was moved by them. It really got me to thinking though. Why is it that a song just seems to fit in with things going on in your life. Is it becuase you want to see it that way or is it really the depth of music? I wonder if it can be just too easy to make the words fit how you want them to fit. Is it manipulation of the words or the words really mimic your life? I'm too tired to give this much more contemplation than I've just done. I guess for now I'm best to leave the pondering for another day.
