India.Arie Ready For Love Lyrics

Last updated: 07/24/2011 11:00:00 AM

I am ready for love
Why are you hiding from me
I'd quickly give my freedom
To be held in your captivity

I am ready for love
All of the joy and the pain
And all the time that it takes
Just to stay in your good grace
Lately I've been thinking
Maybe you're not ready for me
Maybe you think I need to learn maturity
They say watch what you ask for
Cause you might receive
But if you ask me tomorrow
I'll say the same thing

I am ready for love
Would you please lend me your ear?
I promise I won't complain
I just need you to acknowledge I am here

If you give me half a chance
I'll prove this to you
I will be patient, kind, faithful and true
To a man who loves music
A man who loves art
Respects the spirit world
And thinks with his heart

I am ready for love
If you'll take me in your hands
I will learn what you teach
And do the best that I can

I am ready for love
Here with an offering of
My voice
My Eyes
My soul
My mind

Tell me what is enough
To prove I am ready for love

I am ready

Thanks to Celeste for submitting Ready For Love Lyrics.

New Age Sade. | Reviewer: Maureen | 6/26/11

This woman's voice and soul are absolutely intoxicating. I am ready for love is very very powerful, her voice absolutely haunting. As far as I am concerned she is a very modern Sade, but with significantly more depth, if that is possible. I wish the very best to her and that her looming sucesss does not spoil her strengths. Best of luck to you gal!



My plea | Reviewer: breanna | 3/2/11

I am tired of hurt and pain. I jus want some1 to give me what I want to give to them. this song honestly brings me to tears but i love it. i want something real. if men only KNEW all the things a woman goes through an what we really want, maybe so many women wouldn't hafta sing this at night.



I WANT to be ready | Reviewer: Co2x | 2/12/11

The first time I heard this song I had to play it again because it was as if I, myself sat down and pen it. I have been in love with my ex for over 20 years and we have gone back and forth, been in other relationships, a marriage, deployment.... yet something keeps bringin up back together..... I know in my heart I will love this man untilt the day I die BUT does he love me that same way? I have began to ignore his calls because I can't stand to hear his voice knowing how I feel and the whole situation........So I say this.... I am ready for love, to move on to find someone that loves me the same way but I am so afraid.... to let myself go, to be open up, naked,to be hurt, or be loved again.... I want to be ready so bad but am I? Will I ever be?



I am ready for and he is finaaly here! | Reviewer: Joy Martin | 1/8/11

I have been searching my whole life for the right man to come along in my life, and by the Grace of God he's finally here...This song is such an inspiration to me and my man that I love so dearly...When we are married this is going to be our song at our wedding



Faithfully Ready for Love | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/27/10

This song is so many things to me. It represents my passion, my longing, and my readiness for love! I would dedicate this song to God as a songful prayer. When you love as deeply, and sincerely as I do, this song illustrates the inner workings of your heart. Hands down this is a soulful prayer to my maker for Him to unite me with the mate He has for me.



India | Reviewer: Shay | 12/7/09

I really feel that she wrote this song from the bottom of her heart in this is how she feels. You can't write no song better then this. I've tried to but I can't to her. This is every woman's national athom in the end. I first heard this song when my bff teyana song it in our contest at school she actually made me cry because this is how she feel also.



Touched My Heart | Reviewer: Daisy Puerto Rico | 10/21/09

I had been single and Praying for the past 3 years for a Godly man. By the Grace of our Creator I met a Special man by the name of Richard from Texas me in California. Later, discover we are seriously in Love with each other having the Lord as our Foundation. He dedicated this song to me as we spoke on the Phone one night and I became "Speechless". I shead tears of Love, Admiration and Inspiration for Richard. I was able to see deeper than my eyes could see and hear deeper than my ears could hear what Richard was telling me through this Song. I thank him for opening his heart to me and letting me in it.

For those praying for a Husband or a Wife don't give up. Be faithful to the Lord and honor his Word and God will grant you all the desires of your heart according to his richness in Glory. Matthew 6:33 says, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you".

For those who are heartbroken, crushed and hopeless don't give up on yourselves. There are moments we don't understand in life why the Worst things happen to us. We end up alone for years but what we don't see is that our Emotions, Mind, Heart and Soul are being restored and lifted. We forget that Love is a "Decision". So why not include God in our plans for that special Someone? Tell him exactly what you want and wait on his time not yours.

When we do things according to his Word then you will see his Glory manifest before your eyes. Then, this song will certainly encourage you to move on with a different view of what Love Truely means.

I now understand the Man I longed and prayed for years asked me to Marry him. I said, "Yes". What he doesn't know is since he loves to hear me sing I will sing "Ready For Love" to him in our Ceremony. We give God all the Glory and Honor for People like Rudy Diaz that wrote this song and India for such a beautiful talent to live what she sings and people like us are blessed with this type of lyrics.
I Love You Richard!



shhh... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/13/09

This helped me through my rough time as well... but instead of waiting for someone who doesn't love me back, i think of the lyrics to God. I am ready for love now, and with God's grace, I will love again.



My review | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/27/09

This song helped me through the time of my life when i thought i was gonna die. My girlfriend of 3 years which i loved and still do broke up with me at dinner when i was gonna ask her to marry me. She told me she was in love with someone else so acted like it was fine as i didn't ask her yet.She said she couldn't wait on me to give myself to her completely because she desperately wants to be my wife and i won't ask her, so she found someone else.I get emotional just thinking about and i won't forget. I saw her and told her and she cried
