Music and Lyrics # 1: Let Love In

This is a new section I’d like to call “music and lyrics,” in which I introduce and appreciate amazing words that have the ability to inspire and give hope or, in some cases, perfectly describe an emotion or experience.

For my first post on this subject, I’d like to take a closer look at these lyrics. The song is by the Goo Goo Dolls, one of my all-time favorite bands, and the title is “Let Love In”– something that we could all do a little more : )

Surprisingly, we often find ourselves in situations where we feel like love will not come our way. Like we are waiting for approval, waiting for someone to come along and save us from the circumstances we currently face.

We have to first give others the opportunity to love us, despite flaws, past mistakes and what we may lack.

God and Jesus love us with an unfailing love, and we allow them deeper into our lives through prayer. Jesus, I am tired of this weight I carry with me. I need you to come into my life and be my personal Lord and Savior. This kind of love is where living and healing begin. You see, “The end of fear is REALLY where we begin.” All you have to do is Let Him in.

No measure of earthly love will ever amount to the love we have promised to us in Christ.

“Let Love In”

NOTE: this song belongs to The Goo Goo Dolls

You wait, wanting this world
To let you in
And you stand there
A frozen light
In dark and empty streets
You smile hiding behind
A God-given face
But I know you’re so much more
Everything they ignore
Is all that I need to see

You’re the only one I ever believed in
The answer that could never be found
The moment you decided to let love in
Now I’m banging on the door of an angel
The end of fear is where we begin
The moment we decided to let love in

I wish
Wishing for you to find your way
And I’ll hold on for all you need
That’s all we need to say
I’ll take my chances while
You take your time with
This game you play
But I can’t control your soul
You need to let me know
You leaving or you gonna stay

You’re the only one I ever believed in
The answer that could never be found
The moment you decided to let love in
Now I’m banging on the door of an angel
The end of fear is where we begin
The moment we decided to let love in

There’s nothing we can do about
The things we have to do without
The only way to feel again
Is let love in

There’s nothing we can do about
The things we have to live without
The only way to see again
Is let love in

You’re the only one I ever believed in
The answer that could never be found
The moment you decided to let love in
Now I’m banging on the door of an angel
The end of fear is where we begin
The moment we decided to let love in
