Song Lyric Sunday (10/21/18) – Lost

Helen’s prompt for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday is the word lost. My selection for her prompt is a slight modification where I am settling on the word lose instead of lost. Instead of going deep and obscure with a song that speaks to any social or political agenda I decided on a contemporary song that really hit me when I first heard it. The lyrics truly nailed the feeling of falling in love. The singer…amazing.

Here is All of Me by John Legend.

 

What would I do without your smart mouth
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out?
You’ve got my head spinning, no kidding
I can’t pin you down

What’s going on in that beautiful mind?
I’m on your magical mystery ride
And I’m so dizzy, don’t know what hit me
But I’ll be alright

My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy, and I’m out of my mind

‘Cause all of me loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me, I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose, I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh

How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you’re crying, you’re beautiful too?
The world is beating you down
I’m around through every mood

You’re my downfall, you’re my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing in my head for you

My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy, and I’m out of my mind

‘Cause all of me loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me, I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose, I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh

Give me all of you
Cards on the table, we’re both showing hearts
Risking it all, though it’s hard

‘Cause all of me loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me, I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose, I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you

I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh
