Love, Me by Collin Raye

Lagu ini termasuk bener2 jadul sampai2 gak ada yang tau nih lagu tiap kali saya tanyain. Kurang populer memang. Tapi artinya dalem banget. BANGET. Sampai kadang kalo saya lagi agak bete n sedih2 gitu, bisa nangis klo denger ini. NB: yang ngenalin lagu ini ke saya pertama kali tuh my best friend pas SMA. Dan lagu ini termasuk list lagu favorit saya sepanjang masa. Ini nih liriknya…

I read a note my Grandma wrote back in 1923
Grandpa kept it in his coat, and he showed it once to me
He said, “Boy, you might not understand, but a long, long time ago,
Grandma’s daddy didn’t like me none, but I love your Grandma so.

We had this crazy plan to meet and run away together
Get married in the first town we came to and live forever
But nailed to the tree where we were supposed to meet instead
I found this letter, and this is what it said,

“If you get there before I do
Don’t give up on me
I’ll meet you when my chores are through
I don’t know how long I’ll be

But I’m not gonna let you down
Darling wait and see
And between now and then
Til I see you again
I’ll be loving you

Love, Me.””

I read those words just hours before my Grandma passed away
In the doorway of the church where me and Grandpa stopped to pray
I know I’ve never seen him cry in all my fifteen years
But as he said these words to her, his eyes fill up with tears

“If you get there before I do
Don’t give up on me
I’ll meet you when my chores are through
I don’t know how long I’ll be

But I’m not gonna let you down
Darling wait and see
And between now and then
Til I see you again
I’ll be loving you

Love, Me”
