Originally written for the musical Tuxedo Love (book and other songs by Jenna Newman), about the wedding of two gay penguins, which prompts hot debate among the other zoo animals. When the planned festivities end in a violent melee, the two penguins share private vows alone.

In a complete coincidence, this version was recorded on the day the Supreme Court struck down DOMA.


(1) Let me love you
Let me strip away the hurlyburly and the lights
Until it's just we two
Let me love you
There are times for tears, but not tonight
But not tonight

Let me be your one familiar face
A warm heart in a cold place

Let me love you
I think we've both spent quite enough time alone for a while

(2) I'll break your heart
Forget to call
I'll snore
I'll steal the covers
I'll let you down without meaning to
I'll get old
I'll think everyone is your lover

(1) I want it all
Just say the words
Bringing grace to a pair of flightless birds

(1) Let me love you
(2) If you love me
(Both) It's the hardest thing I'll ever ask of you
I do
