"Honey Let Me Sing You A Song" as written by Gregg Wattenberg, Matt Hires and Eric Rosse....
Maybe I'm blind, maybe I'm blind
Oh, I couldn't see you shine
And shimmer right in front of my eyes
Front of my eyes, oh no

I never saw light, never saw light
All I saw were faded mirrors
And dim reflections but
You shine, you shine so much brighter, oh

So honey let me sing you a song
And listen to my words
As they come out wrong, but don't
Run away, run away, this time

And honey let me look in your eyes
You can open them one at a time, but don't
Look away, look away, this time

Open your mind, open your mind
To know that you don't have to hide
So please don't leave me
Don't meet me outside
Leave me outside, oh no

Oh, and honey I'll try, honey I'll try to hold you
Like the starry skies, we lie beneath tonight
'Cause you shine, you shine so much brighter
Oh, oh, oh, oh

So honey let me sing you a song
And listen to my words
As they come out wrong, but don't
Run away, run away, this time

And honey let me look in your eyes
You can open them one at a time, but don't
Look away, look away, this time

Oh, I'm walking on a wire, 'cause you're all I want now
So don't feed me to the fire, and I won't let you down
And please don't hide, these things we say tonight
Can help us get our feet back on the ground

So honey let me sing you a song
And listen to my words
As they come out wrong, but don't
Run away, run away, this time

And honey let me look in your eyes
You can open them one at a time, but don't
Look away, no, look away
No, look away, don't look away, oh

And honey let me sing you a song
And listen to my words
As they, come out wrong, but don't
Run away, run away this time

And honey let me look in your eyes
Oh, they burn like fire, but don't
Look away, look away, this time
And don't, look away, look away this time

Don't look away, look away, this time.

    General Commenti think that this song is so beautiful.
    im listening to it right now.

    i think it is about a guy how fell for his best friend, and he realizes he is stupid for not seeing it before ("Maybe I'm blind, maybe I'm blind Oh I couldn't see you shine And shimmer right in front of my eyes")
    and he is trying to tell her and doesnt know if shes going to take it the right way and he doesnt want her to reject him ("And honey let me sing you a song And listen to my words as they come out wrong But don't run away")

    its so beautiful :]

    General Commenti think it means that he's finally realized he's in love with his good friend, and she's saving him from the darkness. He's not quite sure how to tell her but he does :)

    My InterpretationI thought I saw light, thought I saw light
    Oh it was a faded mirror, just a dim reflection
    But you shine, you shine so much brighter, oh



    The song is beautiful yes, but it means something so much different. Hopefully I don't ruin the song but in the above quote he is saying that he cheated on her. He is trying to tell her that it didn't mean anything and he doesn't dwell on it that long because the song is about how beautiful she is and that he loves her not about the affair.

    General CommentThe meaning suggested about cheating, why would that be the only interpretation? Has the writer expressed it in an interview? It could also mean that they left a relationship they thought was "the one" that didn't end up being that way and now with this person it is working in a way that others never did. Also, even though it's recorded with a guy singing it, there is no gender to the lyrics so it can go either way. It's an amazing song regardless of what the original meaning was.

    I'd never heard of this song until this morning when my computer spontaneously started playing it when there were no audio programs running and no web pages with it. There were no files that had any portion of it in it on my computer. The really ironic/spooky part is since last night I'd been struggling with an issue that this song fits perfectly.

    General CommentMatt Hires explains himself @ yousingiwrite.blogspot.com/2009/10/…

    "Q: I love the first single off the album, “Honey, Let Me Sing You A Song.” What’s the story behind it?

    A: I wrote the song about a girl I was dating at the time who I had been friends with for a long time, but had a slow attraction that blossomed through that. That’s what the song is about."
