Helen Reddy – I Don't Know How To Love Him lyrics

I don't know how to love him
What to do, how to move him
I've been changed, yes really changed
In these past few days
When I've seen myself
I seem like someone else
I don't know how to take this
I don't see why he moved me
He's a man, he just a man
And I've had so many men before
In very many ways
He's just one more
Should I bring him down
Should I scream and shout
Should I speak of love
Let my feeling out
I never thought I'd come to this
What's it all about
Don't you think it's rather funny
I should be in this position
I'm the one who's always been so calm so cool
No lover's fool
Running every show
He scares me so
Yet if he said he loved me
I'd be lost, I'd be frightened
I couldn't cope, just couldn't cope
I'd turn my head, I'd back away
I wouldn't want to know
He scares me so
I want him so
I love him so

    I learned that this song is somewhat religious, but I have other meaning for this song. It talks about a woman who has control over her life and feelings but came short of handling a feeling that's new to her, real love. Although, she had many men before coming in and out of her life, but his man is different. This man talks about real love and for keeps. She just can't take such situation and somewhat coward even though she also falls for him too. Everything she learned from handling men seemed to evaporates into thin air when this man came to her life. For the first time in her life, she doesn't know how to love him.
