I’m listening to Cry me a river by Justin Timberlake as I type this post. I like the irony of talking about a love song as I listen to one of the ultimate breakup songs. I love Justin’s voice and the cockiness that runs through the song.
Today’s song used to be one of my least favourite Lionel Richie songs for most of my life. I came to like and appreciate the song. It’s a beautiful song and it netted LR the 1983 grammy award for best male pop vocal performance.
Yes, I’m talking about “Truly”- the song that thousands of couples around the world refer to as “our song”. Funny thing is LR wrote the song for his wife Brenda and the “forever” didn’t turn out so well.
Girl, tell me only this.
That I’ll have your heart for always.
And you want me by your side
Whispering the words I’ll always love you
And forever I will be your lover
And I know if you really care
I will always be there
Now I need to tell you this
There’s no other love like your love
And I as long as I live,
I’ll give you all the joy
My heart and soul can give
Let me hold you
I need to have you near me
And I feel with you in my arms
This love will last forever
Because I’m truly
Truly in love with you girl
I’m truly head over heels with your love
I need you, and with your love I’m free
And truly,you know you’re alright with me
