I tend to really, really get into music. Every now and again a song – listened to during a time when I can really relate to the lyrics – will tug at my heart. A few favorites on this very long list include:Before I let You Go by Blackstreet (oldie but goodie), I Deserve by Tank, Brown Skin in India Arie, Ready for Love by the same artist, Halo by Beyonce and Too Shy to Sat by Stevie Wonder. This past weekend I discovered a new favorite. I am including the lyrics here as well … absolutely beautiful!!!

“I Choose You”

You introduce me to life, that I’ve never known
When I’m by your side that’s when I’m feeling home
And my only attempt is to make you smile, I promise
So believe what I say when I say I’m real
Cuz there ain’t no mistake in the way I feel
Baby open your heart and accept this love, I give you

Over the others, over my pride,
Over the falls I have in my life
I choose you
I choose you
I choose you
I choose you
Over the others, over my pride
Cuz you’re the best thing, in my life
I choose you
I choose you
I choose you
I choose you

Said I knew it was right, so I took the chance
Disregarded the challenge of the circumstance
Now your to big a part of me to let you go, I promise
So despite the way that I make mistakes
And despite the direction this love may take
You can always be sure of me just have faith,
Got you, this what is true (?)

Over the others, over my pride,
Over the falls I have in my life
I choose you
I choose you
I choose you
I choose you
Over the others, over my pride
Cuz you’re the best thing, in my life
I choose you
I choose you
I choose you
I choose you
