I remember the last day we were together. I was glad the rain had finally let up because I was anxious to leave. I waited for him by the door with my bags in hand, I knew he’d want to say goodbye.
When are you coming back?
I don’t know.
He hugged me awhile while we stood on the porch, but I didn’t hug back.
Do you love me?
I couldn’t bring myself to lie to him again.
You said you loved me up there.
I still said nothing, just looked down.
Go. Just go.
And so I went. Loading my things into the car I took a mental inventory making sure I had everything. I knew I would not be returning. This detour in my life was now over. And as I made the long journey home great relief came over me. I was on the road back to where I needed to be.
This weeks song is my first country music post. I wouldn’t say I’m a huge fan of country music. But I have to admit that country music has some of the most beautiful lyrics. In this weeks song “I need you” by Faith Hill and Tim McGraw the lyrics aren’t especially amazing but they’re perfect for a great love song in my opinion, they’re simple and sincere. The song is mostly metaphors of things that go together or need each other, and that’s how they need each over. The video is also simple and sincere. Faith and Tim are sitting in a candlelit room singing while looking into each others eyes. I just swoon everytime I see it. So here’s the video, hope it pulls at your heart strings the way it does for me.
Today’s song is actually a cover of a classic. “Lovesong” by Adele, the original is by the English rock band The Cure. Don’t get me wrong the original captured me the moment I heard it, but Adele brings a jazzy/bluesy element to it that makes it easier to dance to. This would be a very good first dance song at a wedding. It’s so sensual who wouldn’t want to hold someone close while listening to it. Now whether you prefer the original or the covers the lyrics are still the same. With every line the singer is describing how much better he is whenever he is with this person. He’s fun ,clean, whole, free, and young. And then he promises that no matter what happens between them he will always love that person. Check out this great lyric video and let Adele whisk you away.
I’m afraid to fall in love with you.
I’m afraid to write poems about you,
I am afraid to let you occupy my mind.
What if we’re not meant to be together?
I’m afraid to give my heart to something fruitless.
We walk very different paths, what if they were never meant to join?
The vulnerability of your heart draws me in.
You are so mysterious in your ways, I can never figure you out.
But I’m afraid to look deeper, what if loving you is wrong?
What’s hidden between us? Nothing. There is not a detail of my soul that is unknown to you. Or a dream in my heart that hasn’t been revealed to you. You know the true meaning behind all of my expressions. All the different versions of my laughs. You know what scares me the most, and what makes me ecstatic. Even in silence we speak to each other in a million little ways. The looks and the smiles saying what words cannot.
