Lyrics

Let Me In

Written By: Monica Max West

I could not leave before now, I could not stay any longer
I hope the distance between us will help our love grow stronger
I was so near and yet I was remote
These falling tears, my voice sticks in my throat

Will you let me in? I stand here before you in my naked skin
Will you let me in? I’m asking you over and over and over
And over and over again

Because you shut me out, you went away
I asked you why but you could not say
You shut me out, you closed the door
Though you’re asking me to stay forever more…

Can I have a little patience? Can I have a little faith?
‘Cause there’s nothing to do but wait for you, I know

I could not stay any longer, I could not leave before now
I hope that this separation will bring you back somehow
I love you true with all my heart
It pains me to be apart

Will you let me in? I stand here before you in my naked skin
Will you let me in? I’m asking you over and over and over
And over and over again

Because you shut me out, you went away
I asked you why but you could not say
You shut me out, you closed the door
Though you’re asking me to stay forever more…

Can I have a little patience? Can I have a little faith?
So I promise to wait for you like a prayer
I’ll wait for you, will you meet me there?

(You let me in, you let me in, you let me in – and I’m so happy now!)
I waited, I was patient, I waited for you
I waited, I was patient, because I love you
Come home to me
Come home, oh my darling
Come home to me
Come home, you finally let me in

My Offering

Written By: Monica Max West

Here is (oh yeah)
My offering (oh yeah)
Here is
The gift that I bring to you (HERE IN MY SOUL)
Here is (HERE ARE MY TWO STRONG HANDS)
My offering (THE SHAMEFUL SECRETS OF ALL I AM)
Here is (IF YOU WANT ME, YOU HAVE ME BUT TAKE)
The gift that I bring to you, that I bring to you (TAKE ME WHOLE, TAKE ME WHOLE)

I bound my soul to a tree
I left it there for you to see
I wrapped my fate around a branch
Suspended in the breath of chance

I wait for revelation
Knee deep in a lake of contemplation
I wait, I wait for revolution
The moon that rights the tide of evolution, oh yeah

Here is (HERE IS MY OFFERING)
My offering (HERE IS THE GIFT I BRING)
Here is (HERE, RIGHT HERE)
The gift that I bring to you (HERE IN MY SOUL)
Here is (HERE ARE MY TWO STRONG HANDS)
My offering (THE SHAMEFUL SECRETS OF ALL I AM)
Here is (IF YOU WANT ME, YOU HAVE ME BUT TAKE)
The gift that I bring to you, that I bring to you (TAKE ME WHOLE, TAKE ME WHOLE)

I placed my memory on a rock
And prayed to break out of this deadlock
I wrote my name on the stony floor
Like some Amazon conspirator

I wait for inspiration
I’m bathed in the beauty of this starry dedication
And I wait, I wait for absolution
To bless me with some peace and resolution, oh yeah

Here is (HERE IS MY OFFERING) (oh yeah)
My offering (HERE IS THE GIFT I BRING) (oh yeah)
Here is (HERE, RIGHT HERE)
The gift that I bring to you (HERE IN MY SOUL) (oh yeah)
Here is (HERE ARE MY TWO STRONG HANDS) (oh yeah)
My offering (THE SHAMEFUL SECRETS OF ALL I AM) (oh yeah)
Here is (IF YOU WANT ME, YOU HAVE ME BUT TAKE)
The gift that I bring to you, that I bring to you (TAKE ME WHOLE, TAKE ME WHOLE)
Here is (HERE IS MY OFFERING) (oh yeah)
My offering (HERE IS THE GIFT I BRING) (oh yeah)
Here is (HERE, RIGHT HERE)
The gift that I bring to you (HERE IN MY SOUL) (oh yeah)
Here is (HERE ARE MY TWO STRONG HANDS) (oh yeah)
My offering (THE SHAMEFUL SECRETS OF ALL I AM) (oh yeah)
Here is (IF YOU WANT ME, YOU HAVE ME BUT TAKE)
The gift that I bring to you, that I bring to you (TAKE ME WHOLE, TAKE ME WHOLE)
That I bring to you (TAKE ME WHOLE, TAKE ME AS I AM)
