Perfect Imperfections

I love this song.  I'm sure you've heard it.  I mean, according to USA Today, it is the most Shazamed song of the year in the USA.  

I think about my husband when I hear this song.  I think about our relationship.  There are certain lines he could sing to me, other lines that I can sing to him and many that we could sing to one another.



John Legend
All of Me

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

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

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

Some people say that marriage is 50-50.  No.  Marriage is 100-100.  You have to give all of yourself.  Both partners have to be all in.  This year definitely tested that for us.  If we weren't both all in there may not be an "us" at this point.  I'm certainly grateful that isn't the case. 

Michael, I may be crazy and you may be out of your mind...or is that you may be crazy and I'm out of my mind...either way...
I  give you all of me.
