Lyrics To Live By: Learn To Love Yourself

In 1971 as a nine year old boy, I heard this angelic voice on the TV and later learned it was Olivia Newton John. For the past 48 years I have listened to her music through good times and bad and is by far my favorite artists of all time.

This song, “Learn To Love Yourself” reminds me that unless you love yourself, you can’t expect to love anyone else or let anyone else love you..

Lyrics by Olivia Newton John & Sky

“Learn To Love Yourself”

You’re hurting, uncertain
Alone again
Still searching for someone
But so afraid
And you’ll try for love
And you’ll cry for love
‘Til you learn to love yourself
And you’ll lie for love
And you’ll die for love
‘Til you learn to love yourself..
The answer is sleeping
Inside your heart
True love that you long for
That’s where it starts
And you’ll try for love
And you’ll cry for love
‘Til you learn to love yourself
And you’ll lie for love
And you’ll die for love
‘Til you learn to love yourself…
Breathe it out and breathe it in
Trust the light that shines within
Let it burn ’til you learn to love yourself
Breathe it out and breathe it in
Trust the light that shines within
Let it burn ’til you learn to love yourselfLove will lead you home…Love will lead you home…Love will lead you home…Breathe it out
Breathe it in
Trust the light that shines within
