umbrella / by your side

umbrella

When  I listen to these songs they remind me of my husband. I wish a slower version of Umbrella would have been our wedding song, along with Sade’s By Your Side. Instead we had two songs At Last by Etta James and Heaven by Bryan Adams.

But the lyrics to Umbrella would be so a propos of the story that unfolded and would take us to the present:

You had my heart
And we’ll never be worlds apart
Maybe in magazines
But you’ll still be my star
Baby, ’cause in the dark
You can’t see shiny cars
And that’s when you need me there
With you, I’ll always share
Because…When the sun shines, we’ll shine together
Told you I’ll be here forever
Said I’ll always be your friend
Took an oath, I’mma stick it out till the end

Now that it’s rainin’ more than ever
Know that we’ll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella

These fancy things
Will never come in between
You’re part of my entity
Here for infinity
When the war has took its part
When the world has dealt its cards
If the hand is hard
Together we’ll mend your heart
Because…

When the sun shines, we’ll shine together
Told you I’ll be here forever
Said I’ll always be your friend
Took an oath, I’mma stick it out till the end

Now that it’s rainin’ more than ever
Know that we’ll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella

You can run into my arms
It’s okay, don’t be alarmed
Come in to me
There’s no distance in between our love
So go on and let the rain pour
I’ll be all you need and more
Because…

When the sun shines, we’ll shine together
Told you I’ll be here forever
Said I’ll always be your friend
Took an oath, imma stick it out till the end

Now that it’s rainin’ more than ever
Know that we’ll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella
You can stand under my umbrella

It’s raining, raining
Ooh baby, it’s raining, raining
Baby, come in to me
Come in to me
It’s raining, raining
Ooh baby, it’s raining, raining
You can always come here to me
Come in to meIt’s pouring rain, it’s pouring rain
Come in to me, come in to me
It’s pouring rain, it’s pouring rain
Come in to me, come in to me

One of the most beautiful songs ever written is Sade’s By Your Side, again, with really powerful lyrics. Her voice and style is so smooth and soothing it leaves you feeling instant relief, and  in a calmer state. For me it does anyway:

You think I’d leave your side baby
You know me better than that
You think I’d leave you down when you’re down on your knees
I wouldn’t do that

I’ll tell you you’re right when you want
And if only you could see into me

Oh when you’re cold, I’ll be there
Hold you tight to me

When you’re on the outside baby and you can’t get in
I will show you, you’re so much better than you know
When you’re lost and you’re alone and you cant get back again
I will find you darling and I will bring you home

And if you want to cry
I am here to dry your eyes
And in no time, you’ll be fine

You think I’d leave your side baby
You know me better than that
You think id leave you down when you’re down on your knees
I wouldn’t do that

I’ll tell you you’re right when you want
And if only you could see into me

Oh when you’re cold, I’ll be there
Hold you tight to me
Oh when you’re low
I’ll be there by your side baby

Oh when you’re cold, I’ll be there
Hold you tight to me
Oh when you’re low
I’ll be there by your side baby

Happy Friday! Enjoy the long weekend….
