All of Me

I heard this for the first time today and it spoke to me deeply. On so many levels. Instead of elaborating on how and why it impacted me, I’m just going to share. And let you guess. And let you be touched as well.

LYRICS:
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[Bridge:]
My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

[Chorus:]
‘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, oh

[Verse 2:]
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

[Bridge:]
My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

[Chorus:]
‘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, oh

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

[Chorus:]
‘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, oh

  2. Reblogged this on ladybluerose and commented:
    a Winter grey day with greyer thoughts
    just standing still no battles to surrender to or be fought
    when a song is shared that touches my heart
    or perhaps it is whispering to my soul on some part
    Thank you Marian for such a moment to sit
    back and think with a smile
    Enjoy…the words speak for their self …

  3. He writes such beautiful words – and then put to music – AND the video of his own wedding – It was perfection. Damn – what’s comparable to that?! (that was a rhetorical question) xo, Jayne

  4. Being incredibly ancient I am using that as an excuse as to why i was unaware of John Legend and this unbelievably moving song. until you brought it to my attention. It moves me so powerfully right now. Thank you for pointing it out. It means a lot.
