Be My Love

Jump to: LyricsLiner NotesA Bit Of Light album Click here to download the mp3.

To hold you.
Feel the flame in my hands.
Come fill up the darkest place.
Bring softness to these walls of stone.

Come be my love.
Tear the skin of your life off for me.
I want to hold your shining spirit to my breast.

Come love.
Be my love.
Let us burn out our lives in the fire of the night.

Make me a god.
Catch my blood in your hands.
Betray me once more in the shadows
then ask me to forgive.

Tie me to the bed
with your serpent and sweat.
Come entangle my fingers and tongue in your breathing.
Pour wine into my pores.
Come tell me I am yours.
Tell me. Tell me. Tell me.

There’s too much now between you and I.
Far too many lies.
Come tear away the skin off from our lives.

Come be my love.
Come burn off the masks we’ve owned.
To find what lies beneath.
...’neath a life lived without you.

Come love, be my love.
Let us turn all the lies into something like a prayer.
Come love, be my love.
Let us burn up our lives for a moment we could bear/bare.

Liner Notes

Song Notes: Be My Love was written for a film score that was to utilize only Tango stylings. The film was based on the Jekyll & Hyde story, so I combined the aspects of the divine and profane, violence and tenderness, obession and gentleness.

Entcho Todorov, the fabulous Hungarian violinist, improvised the intro and outro, and transcended the notes I sketched out for him during the song itself. We recorded it all in my Manhattan apartment, before he gained fame as the Fiddler on the Roof on Broadway (and subsequently played in Book of Mormon, Shrek, and several more Broadway shows, as well as gigs at Lincoln Center, etc.) A wonderful man and astounding talent.
