John Legend is totally a legend in my book. His voice is silky smooth (except this song, it sounds like he has a cold), his face is like a little cherub and his music is straight up sexy. Stay With You (see video below) is one of two John Legend songs on my wedding music countdown. Yes, I love his music that much. Or maybe because it took me nearly six months to decide on 10 songs, I just got tired and decided to throw in another John Legend song. I’ll never tell.
Lyrics are so important to me. Maybe even more so than the melody. This song is about sticking with each other through thick and thin. Being there through good times and bad. Never walking away. Never giving up. Friends come and go, but your partner will be the one beside you when no one else is.
And there will be heartaches and pains, yes it will
But through it all, we will remain
In this life, we all know
Friends may come, and they may go
Through the years I know
I will stay
And in the end I know that we’ll find
Love so beautiful and divine
We’ll be lovers for a lifetime, yeah
And I’ll stay with you
I will stay with you
