Song #26: I'm Ready

kiss-love-passion-791522-o.jpg

There's a lot going on in this song, but to me the essence of "I'm Ready" speaks to knowing that something isn't quite right but still being drawn to it. It's about making your bed in the confusion... the lure of the forbidden... the play between resistance and secretly longing to have your self-protective walls blasted through.

I was privileged this week to have worked with a cowriter - Orlando, FL artist, painter, model, yogini and all around beautiful soul Julie Sandifer, who penned these lyrics and helped in the creative process. Julie infuses wisdom and passion into all of her art, which is made obvious in these powerful words.  If you would like to see more of Julie's work, click to visit her blog or paintings.

LYRICS:

so here I am again. ready. I think I'm ready.

who ever said that love was supposed to be so pure and healthy?

there's love in the chaos; love in the greedy need

how do we forget the past when the memories are so deep?

some hearts open slowly

mine is open freely

but it shuts quickly

 

I invite you in. you don't want me. you want in.

I can't want you  - what is this?

  simple it is not. fearless it is not. intense it is.

 

so here I am again. ready. I think I'm ready

turn me on. turn it off. i need both.

earthy, lusty,  - more more more

stay close. encourage me to let go. my heart is full.

dedicated and all is love

somethings are not meant to be figured out, right love?

so tell me; I want you to tell me

 

I invite you in. you don't want me. you want in.

I can't want you  - what is this?

  simple it is not. fearless it is not. intense it is.

 

no symmetry, lovesick lover

be worthy. try harder.

you can't go wrong.

do more more more -

 

I invite you in. you don't want me. you want in.

I can't want you  - what is this? 

simple it is not. fearless it is not. intense it is.

 

so here I am again. ready. I think I'm ready.

I hope I never have to say goodbye.
