"My Love" as written by Mariah Carey, Carlos Alexander Mckinney and Terius Youngdell Nash....
My love, leave yourself behind
Beat inside me, leave you blind
My love, you have found peace
You were searching for release

You gave it all
You gave into the call
You took a chance and
You took a fall for us

You give thoughtfully, loved me faithfully
You taught me honor, you did it for me

Tonight you will sleep for good
You will wait for me my love

Now I am strong (Now I am strong)
You gave me all
You gave all you had and now I am home

My love, leave yourself behind
Beat inside me, leave you blind
My love, look what you can do
I am mending, I'll be with you

You took my hand and added a plan
You gave me your heart
I asked you to dance with me

You loved honestly
Did what you could release

I know in peace you go
I won't relieve this love

Now I am strong (Now I am strong)
You gave me all
You gave all you had and now I am home

My love, leave yourself behind
Beat inside me, I'll be with you

    General CommentI had to pull over today because I was sobbing to this song.
    My mom is struggling with a rare form of lymphoma and idk this song reminds me of her, and things are so hard, i just don't want her to be gone.

    Lyric CorrectionI'm not sure, but I think the lyrics are:

    My love, leave yourself behind
    beat inside me, leave you blind
    My love, you have found peace
    you were searching for relief

    You gave it all, gave into the call
    you took a chance and you too the fall for us
    You give thoughtfully, love me faithfully
    you've taught me honor, you did it for me

    Tonight you will sleep for good
    You will wait for me, my love
    I am strong, you gave me all
    You gave all you had and now I am home

    My love, leave yourself behind
    beat inside me, leave you blind
    My love, look what you can do
    I am mending, I'll be with you

    You took my hand, added a plan
    Gave me your heart, I asked you to dance with me
    You loved honestly, gave what you could release

    I know in peace you'll go
    I hope relief is yours
    Now I am strong, you gave me all
    You gave all you had and now I am home

    My love, leave yourself behind
    beat inside me, I'll be with you


    This song sort of sounds like a goodbye to a parent, so I'm not sure how this will be incorporated into the Twilight Saga: Eclipse movie.

    Lyric CorrectionI think this might be more correct.


    My love, leave yourself behind
    Beat inside me, leave you blind
    My love, you have found peace
    You were searching for release

    You gave it all, into the call
    You took a chance and
    You took the fall for us

    You came thoughtfully
    Loved me faithfully
    You taught me honor
    You did it for me

    Tonight you will sleep for good
    You will wait for me, my love

    Now I am strong (Now I am strong)
    You gave me all
    You gave all you had
    And now I am home

    My love, leave yourself behind
    Beat inside me, leave you blind
    My love, look what you can do
    I am in this, I'll be with you

    You took my hand, added a plan
    You gave me your heart
    I asked you to dance with me

    You loved honestly
    Gave what you could release

    I know in peace you'll go
    I hope relief is yours

    Now I am strong (Now I am strong)
    You gave me all
    You gave all you had
    And now I am home

    My love, leave yourself behind
    Beat inside me, I'll be with you

    General CommentLike someone else, I did wonder how this song fit into Eclipse... And Dreydon mentioned a 'goodbye to Jacob', so I'm now thinking along those lines. It seems far too 'sad' to be an Edward/Bella piece. And I'd actually prefer it if it was a Jacob-related one since he's my fave character :P Hehe.

    Regardless, this song is stunningly beautiful. Sia's voice conveys such raw emotion, and the strings and the piano complement perfectly. I could listen to this all day!

    General CommentThe beauty about art is that it is open to interpretation.

    My thoughts on why this song fits during the scene wear Edward proposes to Bella and she accepts in Eclipse is because it seals the deal for their love. Bella desires to sacrafice her human life to be with Edward forever. The song is about death, so the underlying message is a bittersweet message about dying for her love to become a vampire and leaving her human family and friends behind.

    My InterpretationI dont think this has anything to do with Edward, it has something to do with Jacob. The song is foreshadowing Jacobs "almost death"{aka at the end of the battle when in the movie Jacob screams bloody murder when he phased back}

    My love, leave yourself behind
    Be inside me, leave you blind
    My heart, you're the fair breeze
    You were searching for a lead
    ( Bella practically emotionally died when she saw Jacob in pain)
    ("You were searching for a lead" he wanted to be bellas he wanted to be the lead)
    You gave it all, gave into the call
    You took it dancing, you took the fall for us
    Looking thoughtfully, at me faithfully
    You taught me honor, you did it for me
    ( he gave it all(life) he did it for Bella)
    To let you will sleep away
    You and I, pouring my love
    Now I am strong, you gave me all
    You gave all you had, and now I am love

    My love, leave yourself behind
    be inside me, leave you blind
    My heart, look what you can do
    I am under here, I'll be with you
    You too my hand, and added a plan
    You gave me your heart, I asked you dance with me
    You left all the sea, left a good breeze
    (he gave her his heart. and the dancing part happened at Bellas wedding in the book):)
    I know, you need to go
    I know, grievance is yours
    Now I am strong, you gave me all
    You gave all you had, now I am love
    My love, leave yourself behind
    Be inside me, I'll be with you

    (Jacob had to go and leave at the end of Eclipse)
    TEAM JACOB <3

    General CommentGorgeous, breathtaking song. I think its about the death of a partner. They gave their all to each other, and now they are okay with the death. This person is stronger thanks to their partner, and they will always be with each other.

    As for it fitting into Eclipse the lyrics don't match anyone's point of view, rarely any of the songs on the soundtracks do, this song just happened to fit the mood of the scene is all, nothing more to it really unless you want it to be.

    Song Meaningi think this song could not only be about death, but also the ending of a relationship:

    My love, you have found peace
    you were searching for release - the difficult relationship is over.

    Now I am strong (Now I am strong)
    You gave me all
    You gave all you had
    And now I am home - they had their relationship and she is content with how it ended. he gave her all she wanted


    You took my hand, added a plan
    You gave me your heart
    I asked you to dance with me

    You loved honestly
    Gave what you could release

    I know in peace you'll go
    I hope relief is yours -



    i think its a somewhat positive break up song, where the 2 partners are ok with the way it ended it, or she hopes that he finds their breakup a relief instead of something negative




    just my interpretation :)
