All About Soul

    

My Hubby sang this song very pointedly to me yesterday in the car, as we were driving home from NYC. 

Thank you honey... you are my Prince.

 

And, I could sing this back to you changing all the "she's" to "he's".  Thank you...

Billy Joel - All About Soul Lyrics

She waits for me at night, she waits for me in silence
She gives me all her tenderness and takes away my pain
And so far she hasn't run, though I swear she's had her moments
She still believes in miracles while others cry in vain

It's all about soul
It's all about faith and a deeper devotion
It's all about soul
'Cause under the love is a stronger emotion
She's got to be strong
'Cause so many things getting out of control
Should drive her away
So why does she stay?
It's all about soul

She turns to me sometimes and asks me what I'm dreaming
And I realize I must have gone a million miles away
And I ask her how she knew to reach out for me that moment
And she smiles because it's understood there are no words to say

It's all about soul
It's all about knowing what someone is feeling
The woman's got soul
The power of love and the power of healing
This life isn't fair
It's gonna get dark, it's gonna get cold
You've got to be tough, but that ain't enough
It's all about soul

There are people who have lost every trace of human kindness
There are many who have fallen, there are some who still survive
She comes to me at night and she tells me her desires
And she gives me all the love I need to keep my faith alive

It's all about soul
It's all about joy that comes out of sorrow
It's all about soul
Who's standing now and who's standing tomorrow
You've got to be hard
Hard as the rock in that old rock 'n' roll song
But that's only part, you know in your heart
It's all about soul

Thank you sweetie... for being my Prince... and always being there.

be well,
Dawn

Awww...what a sweet thing to write about a sweet man.  My friend (who's been married for fifteen years) always sings little songs to him on his voicemail at work.  And she's NOT a great singer. LOL

True love is wonderful, I even appreciate it when it goes just part way, but this love between you and your husband sounds like it is the complete passage.  That is something to treasure, nt having esperienced that yet in my 75 years.  Gerry
