Engelbert - Release Me

weather: cloudy
outside: 4°C
mood: strange
In the 2003-05-02 Friday Five, the first question was "Name a song you hate to admit you like." I just found another one I can add to that list of mine.

Release Me

Please release me, let me go,
For I don't love you anymore.
To live a lie would be a sin.
Release me and let me love again.

I have found a new love, dear.
And I will always want her near.
Her lips are warm where yours are cold.
Release me, darling, let me go.

Please release me, let me go,
For I don't love you anymore.
To waste our lives will be a sin.
So release, and let me love again.

Please, release me, can't you see
You'll be a fool to cling to me
To live a lie will bring us pain
So release, and let me love again.

I don't like the lyrics. It absolutely does not apply to me or my life at all. I really hate the sentiment. It conveys an attitude of love and relationships that makes me bristle. And it's completely not my type of music. But I find myself bizarrely drawn to the beautiful melody and the way the words flow.

It's performed by Engelbert Humperdinck... gotta love that name. =D
