Wordy Wednesday (“All That I Need”)

Thanks to everyone who voted for this week’s Wordy Wednesday! The winning selection is to post another song or poem–and after last week’s, I figured I’d share a happy one this time. This is a song that basically details what I think would be a really cute relationship (note that I’m not Taylor Swift, so unfortunately this never has, and likely never will, happen to me) (no matter how much I like to think I’m her).

**********

VERSE1 [Capo 3—D, C, G, D]

You wrapped me up in a sweatshirt,

Said, “It’s okay not to be like everybody else sometimes.”

Told me you would be there in the middle of the night,

Just call and you would be my superman

[Am, C, G, D]

Where is this going? I don’t know

Just know I don’t want you to go

Please stay here by my side, ’til the sunrise

CHORUS [Am, C, G, D]

You’re all that I need

More than the air I breathe

And I know it sounds stupid

In reality

You’re a breath of fresh air

So pure, I wouldn’t dare

To even think of you thinking of me

But you’re all that I need

VERSE2

You walk me to class, but don’t hold my hand

I’m finding it hard to breathe,

stretched thin like a rubber band

We stay sitting up at night

Alone on the steps, with the streetlight

And nothing happens. Do you love me?

Where is this going? Don’t understand

Just sit here staring at my hands

Because your eyes are brighter than the stars

[Repeat CHORUS]

BRIDGE [Em, C, G, D]

You’re such a spinning hurricane,

And I will never understand

How you could be so still

Like you’re made by a sculptor’s hands

And you will go down in history

As a most amazing man someday,

My voice shakes as I ask,

Will you save me and fly us away?

[Am, C, G, D]

You put your sweatshirt around my shoulders

And remind me of your promise as you say,

CHORUS2 [Am, C, G, D]

You’re all that I need

More than the air I breathe

So let’s go escape

From reality

You’re a breath of fresh air

So pure, I was scared

To even think of you thinking of me

But you’re all that I need

ENDING [D, C, G, D]

And I’ve never felt as warm,

Never felt as at home

As when I’m in your arms

’cause you’re my superman,

And you will protect me from all harm

And you wrap me up in a sweatshirt,

And find the breath to say,

“It’s okay to be yourself. I happen to like you that way.”

Video of the song maybe later this week? Let me know whether or not you’d like one!

 

 

Talk to you on Friday!
