Ready For Love by India Arie

Merry Love Week!

I am ready for love
Why are you hiding from me
I'd quickly give my freedom
To be held in your captivity

I am ready for love
All of the joy and the pain
And all the time that it takes
Just to stay in your good grace
Lately I've been thinking
Maybe you're not ready for me
Maybe you think I need to learn maturity
They say watch what you ask for 
Cause you might receive 
But if you ask me tomorrow 
I'll say the same thing

I am ready for love
Would you please lend me your ear?
I promise I won't complain 
I just need you to acknowledge I am here

If you give me half a chance
I'll prove this to you 
I will be patient, kind, faithful and true
To a man who loves music
A man who loves art
Respects the spirit world
And thinks with his heart

I am ready for love
If you'll take me in your hands
I will learn what you teach
And do the best that I can

I am ready for love
Here with an offering of 
My voice
My eyes
My soul
My mind

Tell me what is enough
To prove I am ready for love

I am ready

A female friend and I recently discussed India Arie. Coincidentally, I expressed how this was my fave Arie song. Wonderful song and lyrics.
