If I Ain't Got You



Picture by....er..I can't remember..of me and my husband, before he was my husband.

"If you press me to say why I loved him, I can say no more than because he was he, and I was I." ~ Michel de Montaigne

Music sometimes speaks to me so deeply that I get goose bumps all over my arms just listening. I wrote about another song that I could relate to awhile back..you can read it here. Another song that I just love, because it reaches my heart and gives me goose bumps, is 'If I Ain't Got You' by Alicia Keys. I have it on my IPOD and I llllooovvveeee it. Makes me wish I could sing so that I could sing it to my husband.

If I Ain't Got You

Some people live for the fortune
Some people live just for the fame
Some people live for the power, yeah
Some people live just to play the game
Some people think that the physical things
Define what's within
And I've been there before
But that life's a bore
So full of the superficial

[Chorus:]
Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you, Yeah

Some people search for a fountain
That promises forever young
Some people need three dozen roses
And that's the only way to prove you love them
Hand me the world on a silver platter
And what good would it be
With no one to share
With no one who truly cares for me

[Chorus:]
Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you, you, you
Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you, yeah

[Outro:]
If I ain't got you with me baby
So nothing in this whole wide world don't mean a thing
If I ain't got you with me baby
