I Want to Love You ~ A Song

This tune is about uncertainty in a relationship. It marks the difficult space of not knowing which direction to go with one’s heart. Two people can share the same experience for which they would offer very different understandings. It might be romance; it might be friendship. And as we “carry on,” living into the answers one step at a time, we may find that the path brings us to a broader, less defined, way of loving in the end. 

You can listen to “I Want to Love You” for free on my website at https://tammywinn.com/music. It is the 7th track on the album, “Calling Deep.” 

May you be inspired! 

“I Want to Love You” 
© Tammy Winn 

Brushing up against old scars 
And the saddest part 
I don’t think you understand 
You’ve never had 
Your heart broken before 

A tragedy that empathy 
Comes at the price of suffering 
No baby, I don’t want you to hurt 

But I wish you knew 
What you do to me 
And I wish I knew 
How to set this free 
So I could simply carry on, carry on 

Must I let you go 
Must I tell you so 
I’m in anguish over the grey 
While you sail on in blue 
And I don’t want to just be 
Good for your ego 
Babe, I want to love you 

Mixed signals just don’t exist 
So I try to resist 
The temptation to give in 
And let you win 
What you still have to earn 

My logic cries open your eyes 
Now’s not the time to compromise 
Yeah baby, I know what I deserve 

But I wish you knew 
What you do to me 
And I wish I knew 
How to set this free 
So I could simply carry on, carry on 

Must I let you go 
Must I tell you so 
I’m in anguish over the grey 
While you sail on in blue 
And I don’t want to just be 
Good for your ego 
Babe, I want to love you 

Must I let you go 
Must I tell you so 
I’m in anguish over the grey 
While you sail on in blue 
And I don’t want to just be 
Good for your ego 
Babe, I want to love you 

Simply carry on 
Simply carry on 
Simply carry on 
Carry on
