Bethany Joy Lenz is someone who I really feel inspired by. I fell in love with her as “Haley James Scott” on “One Tree Hill.”

I became swept away by the love she shared with her on screen husband “Danny Santos” on veteran soap opera “Guiding Light” where she played a fiery “Michelle Santos.”

Was enchanted by her vocal range and ability to make the world seem a little lighter, a little brighter and just a touch more emotional.

Adored her sense of style and followed her Wardrobe Wednesday Blog Posts.

Seriously miss those posts!

And last but not least became intrigued by her singer songwriter meets writer qualities as she began an online rotating novel entitled “Diamond Gothic.” 

Still no word on if she plans to continue that! I’m still waiting for a new chapter!

After Joy’s “One Tree Hill” journey ended over a year ago, I had really missed my Joy fix. But upon her newest role on “Dexter” playing the character “Cassie” whom, from what I hear through the grapevine is gearing up to be a new love interest for “Dexter,” Joy decided to release a new single…a song entitled…

Here are the lyrics:

“Please”
Written by Bethany Joy Lenz
 
If you’re in love with me
why don’t you show me
If you can’t live without holding me then hold me
 
I have been ignored and abused and rejected so it’s time you told me
if this is what it is then it is not 
anything for me
 
Are you going to try 
or is it so easy to watch me 
walking out the door
 
Please
get down on your knees
or stand there and shout my name
till the walls some tumbling
kiss me and say 
you know you can’t let me go 
baby please say ‘stay with me’
 
I get so tired of scratching
scratching at your door
You push me out, then let me in
then you push me out all over again
 
With you I have been so exposed,
unprotected, and you’ve never known me
Is it me that you need?
Or is the need simply to own me?
 
Are you going to try 
or is it so easy to watch me 
walking out the door
 
Please
get down on your knees
or stand there and shout my name
till the walls some tumbling
kiss me and say 
you know you can’t let me go 
baby please say ‘stay with me’

 

I have to say that when I first heard this I was both heartbroken and inspired. These lyrics are so beautiful, so powerful, so sad. I hate to dive into her personal life, because I know she’s a rather personal person…

But I can’t help but make a connection to her recent divorce from previous husband; Michael Galeotti (Enation; Piano), whom she had daughter Maria with.

The concept of someone needing to hear that their significant other needs them. Sometimes that reassurance must be met. Its that whole “ask me to stay” situation. Don’t let me leave, because if you do that means maybe I’m not worth fighting for.

After everything two people have been through doesn’t a woman deserve for a man to just tell her the truth, call out to her and learn to stop taking advantage. Its not about telling them they need to show you how they feel it’s about wishing they’d do it without you mentioning it.

I guess that’s a common girl mentality.

But regardless of the meaning behind the lyrics Bethany and her music are a force to be reckoned with and I for one cannot be happier that she’s releasing new music!
