Monday Musings: John Legend "All of Me"

**Disclaimer: I have to apologize ahead of time, this post will not include any pictures. You're going to have paint your own mental picture for what the lyrics are saying to you, personally.**

I have to tell you, I'm a huge lyric dude. I'm also a huge fan of the piano. Don't get me wrong, I love a ton of different kind of music. But when it comes down to it, just about anything with some meaningful lyrics over the piano keys hits the soul just perfect. Simple and to the point. Call me an old soul if you want, but all you really need to make a good song is a piano and a microphone.

 For all of you who are looking for that song to tell your Love how you really feel about them, this one may be it.  

There are very few songs out there that can explain exactly what we feel about our significant other. Most of the time it's the song that was playing on your first date. Sometimes its the song that we grew to love together as the relationship became stronger. 

No matter what the reason for having your song, if you don't have one, you're going to have to add this one to the top of your list. 

 I happened to find out this song by John Legend is going to be on his new album coming out later this month. He wrote this song about his fiance and when I heard it I was blown away by how perfect he captured their relationship in one song. While still expressing his love for his fiance.

"All of Me" - John Legend 

What would I do without your smart mouth
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
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, all of me
And you give me all, all of you

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 move
You’re my downfall, you’re my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, I 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, 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, all of me
And you give me all, all of you
