Poems, like songs, communicate powerful messages. Poems are meant to be understood by the brain. While songs are felt with the heart. Below you will find three powerful love songs to help you find the right words to explain the feelings you have for that special someone, and also for the single hopeless romantic, who adore love songs. These three songs should give an impression of what true love is.
Never Stop- Safetysuit (2012)
“Let every woman know I’m yours
So you can fall asleep each night, babe
And know I’m dreaming of you more.”
In relationships, we seek security, and it is the best feeling in the world. In the right relationship, you don’t have to worry about your partner wandering off with another person. In this song, Safetysuit is communicating that his partner can have peace of mind, sleeping at night because he is only dreaming of her. When we feel secure with our partners, we can focus more on the relationship, rather than feeling afraid or anxious. These short, simple words from Safetysuit is implying what a relationship should be. Also, do not romantically get involved with anyone if you are unable to provide emotional security. There should be a stable pattern of feelings, attitude, and happiness in a relationship.
“You always want to keep my gaze
Well you’re the only one I see
And that’s the one thing that won’t change.”
In this verse, the girl is trying to keep him interested, and in his eyes, she is the only girl that matters and is ‘visible’ to him. And, that attraction would never change. Let’s face it, we live in a world with billions of people, and there is always someone else more talented, and better. Temptations will occur, but true love would not allow external factors to interfere. Again, in this verse, he is trying to reassure her and make her feel ‘secure.’
“I’ll never stop trying”
Of course, in any relationship, there would be ups and downs but he is indicating that he will never stop trying. Never stop trying to work things out, and not giving up or leaving.
Every time I see you looking back at me”
“I’ll never stop holding your hand
I’ll never stop opening your door
I’ll never stop choosing you babe”
I want to look the other way”

You made me feel as though I was enough”

I held your hair back when
You were throwing up”
Then you smiled over your shoulder
For a minute, I was stone-cold sober

“And you asked me to stay over
I said, I already told ya
I think that you should get some rest”

But you’d never know
‘Cause I played it cool when I was scared of letting go”

And I’ll take the kids to school
Wave them goodbye

For a minute, I forget that I’m older
And I swear that every day it get better
Darling your love is more than worth its weight in gold

I promise till death we part like in our vows
So I wrote this song for you, now everybody knows
Finally, it’s just you and me till we’re grey and old
He is promising her that the only time they would separate is after death. Just like their wedding vows. And, he wrote this song, because he wants the world to know. In the end, it’s just him and her until they are gray and old.

The world is beating you down, I’m around through every move

Cards on the table, we’re both showing hearts
Risking it all, though it’s hard

I give you all, all of me
And you give me all, all of you
The repetitive verse of this song is “I give you all of me” and “give me all of you”. Which means that he is giving all of him to one woman. He is giving unconditional love regardless of her mood swings, how she feels, her difficulties and her flaws. And, he loves her with his entire mind, heart, and body, all of him. This song by John Legend represents what true, unconditional love is.
