More On…All About Love

A love song has been in my head for the last few days (mostly because they’ve been playing it on my soap opera). And since I was talking yesterday about how we write poems and sing songs about love, I thought this would be as good a time as any to post these words.

For those of you who are Alicia Keys fans, you will probably recognize these as the words to her song “Like You’ll Never See Me Again”.

If I had no more time
No more time left to be here
Would you cherish what we had?
Was it everything that you were looking for?
If I couldn’t feel your touch
And no longer were you with me
I’d be wishing you were here
To be everything that I’d be looking for
I don’t wanna forget the present is a gift
And I don’t wanna take for granted the time you may have here with me
‘Cause Lord only knows another day is not really guaranteed

So every time you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
Every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you’ll never see me again
Every time you touch me
Touch me like this is the last time
Promise that you’ll love me
Love me like you’ll never see me again

How many really know what love is?
Millions never will
Do you know until you lose it

That it’s everything that we are looking for
When I wake up in the morning
You’re beside me
I’m so thankful that I found
Everything that I been looking for

I don’t wanna forget the present is a gift
And I don’t wanna take for granted the time you may have here with me
‘Cause Lord only knows another day is not really guaranteed

Granted, I know this is only talking about one particular kind of love, but I think that if you look at the verses alone, they could talk about many kinds of love.

Seems I’m getting sentimental these days. This must stop. 🙂
