John Legend’s “All of Me” Lyrics Rewritten

What would I do without your wise words?
Teaching me things I never have heard
You’ve got my head spinning, no kidding, I can’t bring you down.
I love listening to your beautiful mind
You bring me to a saner side
And I’m so happy, extremely happy to now be called your bride
……………………..
My heart’s falling harder
But I’m feeling fine
You might call me crazy and out of my mind
…………………
‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your terms and all your pledges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, ohoh
………………………………
How many times do I have to tell you
when we’re apart I feel real blue?

You’re my heart, and you are my home
You’re sweet as fresh honeycomb
I can’t stop singing, my heart clinging, for every part of you

…………………….

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

…………………………….

I have much pride in rewriting this song, as not only are the words not bittersweet but also the rhythm of my lyrics coincides with the rhythm of the first version to be sung in the same fashion. To me this is a great victory performed only two months and three days after my accident that caused me to be a patient due to fractured and crushed vertebrae ALONG WITH being a brain injury survivor.
