All of Me

I'm completely and utterly obsessed with this song right now. Seriously, I could listen to it five hundred times on repeat every single day.


All of Me by John Legend on Grooveshark

It's such a beautiful song. It's intimate and passionate. It's what I long for in a partner. 

No one is perfect. Love is never perfect. You've got to fight and make a decision every single day to love the one you're with. It's hard. Things get in the way, you get sucked into the routine of life and forget to cherish time with your significant other.

In those moments, it's songs like this that really bring it back to the basics: it's the two of you. Me & you. The end and the beginning. 

When I give all of myself to someone, I do it with fervor. When I'm in, I'm in. 110%. It may be my downfall sometimes, but I wear my heart on my sleeve and I'm not ashamed of it. When I think about myself and the way that I love someone, this song sums it up completely. It puts a feeling into words that I don't think I've ever been able to do before. All means all, not only a part of, not only the good feelings. It's the good AND the bad. It's happy and sad. It's everything

John Legend goes further: "'cause I give you all of me and you give me all of you". It's a two-way street. Even though I'm going to give everything I am and have, I expect the same in return. When you love someone, you love the imperfections, the shortcomings, the flaws. It's not a mission to fix the other person or turn them into someone you'd finally be proud to be with. If that's the case, you're in the wrong relationship. Sure, people grow and you might see the potential they have, but if they're unwilling to reach that potential there's nothing else you can do. *Insert every relationship of my life* 

Even though my previous relationships didn't last, this song gives me hope. It gives me hope that one day, I will be with someone that reciprocates the feelings and sweet gestures, someone that gives me their all, their everything, someone that truly wants to make me happy because he loves me so much. It's out there. I know it is. And one day, I'll be head over heels in love with a man like this.

It's good to be cautious, yes, but when you have that connection with someone and you're totally and completely in love, it's worth it. There's hurt along the way, and confusion...oh the confusion! But I believe in true love and it's absolutely worth the risk of breaking hearts and getting my heart broken in the process. Because one day, a man will put it wholly back together, after every heartbreak I've ever experienced, and it will be so completely amazing. I'll be speechless, and that's saying something! ;)
