Please Let Me Go Sample

About a year ago the nation was barraged by a news story regarding the right to die vs. the conflicting wishes of rival family members. Naturally, it became a political issue. I love Sunday's Doonesbury contrasting the loss of life in a war started for still debatable reasons with stem cell research. Check it out.

This lyric has been sitting in my music stand a long time. I published it here last year with an explanation. I'm not the sort of songwriter who likes to write political message songs, although I have. I think you get a lot more milage out of a lyric that can be looked at in different ways at different levels. Metaphor is my lover.

Here's a snippet of the song as I've been working on a work tape lately. Yeah, it took me THAT long to come up with music for the lyric. That's just the way I usually work. I have a lot of riffs in mind for the song but haven't learned to play them smoothly yet. So this is just a first take. The whole lyric is right here and here is a verse and chorus of the song itself. Sorry dial-uppers, I feel your pain but...

PLEASE LET ME GO
copyright 2005 by Bud Buckley


It took too long to find you,
I did me over and you found me
The price so high I was blind to
The cost of letting you astound me
But now it's time and it's been time for a long time
Yeah, it's time and it's been time for a long time

CHORUS:
If I could, I'd take you with me
Feel your smile deep in my soul
We both know they can't reach me
So I beg you, Please let me go

We left home behind
To find a new place
And life was kind
To our searching embrace
But now it's time and it's been time for a long time
Yeah, it's time and it's been time for a long time

CHORUS:
If I could I'd take you with me
Feel your smile deep in my soul
We both know they can't reach me
Don't make me beg, just let me go
Feel me begging to just let me go

Before you, life was more hard
Than the face I showed you
But together we starred
A love story overdue
But now it's time and it's been time for a long time
Yeah, it's time and it's been time for a long time

CHORUS:
If I could I'd take you with me
Feel your smile deep in my soul
We both know they can't reach me
Feel me begging to just let me go

OUTRO:
Don't make me beg, don't make me beg, don't make me beg, just let me go
