Let It Be Me

  • If the day comes that you must leave
    Let me be the ground to your feet
    If the day comes that you feel weak
    Let me be the armor you need
    Oh, if you falling in love is a crime
    And the price to pay is my life
    Give me sword, bring all the knives
    Hand me the gun, I will not run
    And when they spare everything but my pride
    Don't you worry, boy, don't you cry
    But when they ask, who was the one
    Who got you love
    Let it be me

    If you ever made your last breath
    Let me be the last word you say
    And if right comes, but you choose left
    I will be the first to forgive
    Oh if heaven is a beautiful place
    But those gates don't have enough space
    And they lock you out, spare you no flame
    I will come down, if they're on my wings
    And when the angels call me a fool
    For giving all grace up for you
    I won't look back
    But when they ask, who did you love
    Let it be me

    Let it be me that you think of
    When everything tells you to give it up
    Let it be me that will anchor your soul
    Until the clouds fall out of the sky
    And the snow falls down in July
    Let it be me, that you think of
    Let it be, the one that you love
    Until the flowers don't blow in May
    And forever runs out of days
    Let it be me, let it be me
    The one that you love

    Let it be me
    Let it be me

    Let it be me, let it be me
    Let it be me, let it be me
