thanks to the piano guys for hosting it originally.

Inspired by the classic films of old Hollywood, Let Me In combines the raw emotion of a pop-rock ballad with the beauty of orchestral film score. The music video pays tribute to that source of musical inspiration with its cinematic styling. Let Me In, in its nod to the movies, is a story of stark realization and love lost. Even through pain and feelings of doubt, a glimmer of hope still remains.




LYRICS



"LET ME IN" These picture perfect memories,

Seem to fade out with time.

And now I'm stuck here wishing

I could read your mind.

Oh, I've tried!

Thought all along we'd turn this thing around,

The more I tried the more you held your ground.

I hope that you haven't shut me out completely. 

(Oh no)

And now we're left here...

We're falling again..

We're losing it all...

Again and again,

How'd we get here again?



What would it take for you to finally let me in?

It's more than I can take,

to think that this, this could be the end.

It hurts more than you know,

cuz im not ready to let you go,

But I can't live this way (anymore.)

Anymore.....



You need some time to think

you say to me.



I wont give up till I can help you see,

You're not alone in this world
thats whirling past you.

Oh no oh!

And now we're left here,

We're Falling again!

We're losing it all!

Again ! And again ! How'd we get here again!?


What would it take for you to finally let me in?

It's more than I can take

to think that this, 
this could be the end.

It hurts more than you know,

cuz im not ready to let you go.

but I can't live this way (anymore)

Anymore

What would it take for you to finally let me in?

It's more than I can take,

to think that this, this could be the end!

It hurts more than you know,

cuz im not ready to let go,

But I can't live this way any more.
(anymore)

These picture perfect memories

seem to fade out with time.

And now I'm stuck here wishing,

I could change your mind .....
