"I Am Yours" as written by and Tracy L Chapman....
When all my hopes and dreams
Have been betrayed
I stand before you
My hands are empty

I am yours, if you are mine
I am yours, if you are mine

I fall and stumble
Flat on my face
And I'm shamed and humble
In disgrace

I am yours, if you are mine
I am yours, if you are mine

When voices call me
To question my faith
When mis-perception
Taints my love with hate

I am yours, if you are mine
I am yours, if you are mine

When time decides
You won't stop for me
When the hawks and vultures
Are circling

I am yours, if you are mine
I am yours, if you are mine.

    General CommentThis song is very moving. It shows the lengths to which love can last and what it can overcome. Death 'when the hawks and vultures are circling', shame 'when i am shamed', loss 'when my hopes and dreams have been betrayed'. It can be depressing too as to love someone that much, so that it withstands death and shame, is hard to find and nearly surreal.
