2 Years of Songs: No 3 – “All of Me”

“All of Me”
John Legend

“All of Me” is a classic love song, sung by the great vocalist, John Legend. It’s a song that contains proper heartfelt emotion, and it alludes to the often contradictory complexities of thought and emotion that can arise when in a romantic relationship.

It’s a difficult song for me to listen to because it has a lot of personal meaning attached to it. For that reason it won’t be something I listen to often. But when – inevitably – I hear it again, “All of Me” will evoke the contradictory emotions of happiness and sadness.

For me, these lyrics stand out:

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
