Heaven Help the Fool

My entry for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday is rather personal. This is my husband’s song for me back when we’re just dating. We’ve known each other since high school but we’ve only started dating in 2006. Both of us were from serious relationships at that time. He has been mending his broken heart for almost 2 years, full blown depressed I believe and I was on a rebound due to a very recent breakup. We became friends, started hanging and eventually, tried dating.

Imagine actually knowing when you’re ready to fall again? I still get teary-eyed reminiscing about how I felt ready for love. And as a bonus, the song is from Lenny Kravitz. What else do we ask for?


Heaven Help

There comes a time to be free of the heart
I wanna be ready, ready to start
On a love journey, got places to go
Made up my mind and I have got to let you know

Heaven help the heart that lets me inside
Heaven help the one who comes in my life
Heaven help the fool that walks through my door
‘Cause I decided right now
I’m ready for love (Ooh oh oh oh oh)
I’m ready for love (Ooh oh oh oh oh)

A funny feeling’s coming over me
Now I’m inspired and open to being
In a love place but it’s out of my hands
I’m telling you baby that you got to understand

Heaven help the heart that lets me inside
Heaven help the one who comes in my life
Heaven help the fool that walks through my door
‘Cause I decided right now
I’m ready for love (Ooh oh oh oh oh)
Ready for love (Ooh oh oh oh oh)

I can’t see what’s out there for me
And I know love offers no guarantees
I’ll take a chance and I’m telling you something babe
I got to let you know (oh)

Heaven help the heart that lets me inside
Heaven help the one who comes in my life
Heaven help the fool that walks through my door
‘Cause I decided right now
I’m ready for love (I’m ready yeah yeah)

Ready for love
Take a chance, take the chance on love
The heart
The fool

A little trivia about the song: This is a single from Lenny Kravitz’ 1993 album, Are You Gonna Go My Way written by Gerry DeVeaux and Terry Britten. It made a brief appearance on the US Billboard Hot 100 reaching number 92. In the UK, it became his second top-twenty hit from Are You Gonna Go My Way peaking at number 20. In Canada and New Zealand, the song reached the top 30. Heaven Help is included on Kravitz’ Greatest Hits album.
