Okay Bees I need your BRUTAL HONESTY here. I was listening to KLOVE on the radio today and “All of Me” by Matthew Hammit came on. He wrote it for his baby that was born with a broken heart and I was very touched by it. As someone who is a chronic worrier and usually lets fear of the future, etc. overshadow my decisions I thought this song might be a lovely way to say, “I love you and I’m going to stop letting fear run my life, esp. when it comes to us”. So I thought about surprising my groom-to-be with it at our reception.
BUT the more I thought about the lyrics the more I thought that instead of sounding sweet it might just sound sad or like I broke his heart or something awful. Thoughts?
YouTube of the Song:
Afraid to love Something that could break Could I move on If you were torn away? And I’m so close to what I can’t control I can’t give you half my heart And pray He makes you whole
(Chorus) You’re gonna have all of me You’re gonna have all of me ‘Cause you’re worth every falling tear You’re worth facing any fear You’re gonna know all my love Even if it’s not enough Enough to mend our broken hearts But giving you all of me is where I’ll start
I won’t let sadness steal you from my arms I won’t let pain keep you from my heart I’ll trade the fear of all that I could lose For every moment I share with you
Heaven brought you to this moment, it’s too wonderful to speak You’re worth all of me, you’re worth all of me So let me recklessly love you, even if I bleed You’re worth all of me, you’re worth all of me
