Fall in Love Again with "Love, Me" by Collin Raye 1

Released in October 1991, Love, Me was written by Skip Ewing and Max T. Bernes, and recorded by Collin Raye. In January 1992, it became Raye’s first no. 1 hit on the US Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks. In addition, it received Song of the Year Nomination from the Country Music Association.

Heartbreaking, yet a faith-tinged tribute to a lost mate,  ‘Love, Me’ is an ode to both the all-encompassing power of love and the never-ending hope associated with the belief that all will be made right in the afterlife.

It is a country ballad that tells the story of how Raye’s grandfather and grandmother sealed their love and finally got together.

“Love, Me”

The song opens with Raye reading a note written by his grandmother for his grandfather in their youth. Back then, the father of his grandmother was not in favor with the kind of relationship they are in.  Against the will of the father of Raye’s grandmother, his grandfather decides to run away with her and live the rest of their lives together.

Eventually, they had planned to meet and run away together. But when they were about to meet, his grandfather saw a note nailed to the tree saying:

“If you get there before I do, don’t give up on me
I’ll meet you when my chores are through
I don’t know how long I’ll be
But I’m not gonna let you down, darling wait and see
And between now and then, ’til I see you again
I’ll be loving you 
Love, me”

Raye has read the letter hours before his grandmother passed away. He has not seen his grandfather shed tears before. But as he sees him cry, he knows that their love was one of a kind.

“Loving You”

There comes a time when you meet a person, not just by choice or chance, but because it is destiny. By just looking, no talks, no gesture, just merely looking at each other, you can feel that you and that person are meant to cross each other’s paths. And you can sense that there is something that connects the both of you. Maybe, something called love. And if ever that happens, there’s no turning back, no turning around, no stops, until someone tells the other, “I’ll be loving you… love, me”.
