Yeah! I know I am going to get more views this time compared to my former post on NEW YEAR RESOLUTION because we all want to hold somebody this festive season but I am so sorry to disappoint you, that is just the title of a song I so much love and believe in that I want share with my readers.

So many of us will by now be thinking of the title, trying to decipher who sang while some others by now already know the song that I am writing about. I didn’t just pick this song to write about, I picked it because of the lyrics, the effect the song will have on us if we ever pay the tiniest of attentions to what the singer was saying in that song and the timelessness of the song.

The song is no other than BABY, LET ME HOLD YOU TONIGHT by TRACY CHAPMAN. This song was released off her self-titled album ‘TRACY CHAPMAN’ in the year ‘1988’. The song obviously did lots of good for TRACY and will sure do lots of good to us too if we care enough to listen to her.

Here are the lyrics of the song:

Is all that you can’t say
Years gone by and still
Words don’t come easily
Like sorry like sorry

Forgive me
Is all that you can’t say
Years gone by and still
Words don’t come easily
Like forgive me forgive me

But you can say baby
Baby can I hold you tonight
Maybe if I told you the right words
At the right time you’d be mine

I love you
Is all that you can’t say
Years gone by and still
Words don’t come easily
Like I love you I love you.


Tracy chapman in this song was trying to not just emphasizing the importance of romantic love, but also singing on how the world will be if we all learn to use the words ‘I am sorry’ and ‘forgive me’.  These words could be quite  difficult to say especially when we are the ones to say them but saying them does  a lot of good and heals a lot of wounds.

So, as we round up 2012, if we feel there is one person out there that you feel there is the need to go say those words to, don’t hesitate, do it right away enter into the new year, lets always remember this song and continue toi say ‘I am sorry’ and ‘ forgive me’ whenever we feel the need to.
