There is a song out right now that gets me every time I hear it. It is the song “Like I’m gonna lose you”, by Meghan Trainor and John Legend.
Every time I hear it, the following phrases come through crystal clear.
“I’m gonna love you, like I’m gonna lose you.”
“In the blink of an eye, just a whisper of smoke, you could lose everything, the truth is you never know.”
“We’re not promised tomorrow, love with no regret”
Every time I hear the song, I wonder what the world would be like if everyone understood these words. I wonder what the world would be like if people never wanted people to lose people.
Every time I hear the song it makes me want to hug everyone close to me. It makes me want to hug Aaron longer. It makes me want to hug Kelby longer. I feel the urge to tell my parents, brother, grandma, Aaron, Kelby and close friends how much they mean to me. It allows the words “I love you” to flow more freely to those around me.
The song can break my mindset of any negative thought with 6 words. “Love like I’m gonna lose you.”
Next time you hear the song, listen to the lyrics. Whether you like Meghan or John, it doesn’t matter. The lyrics speak volumes and that to me is better than any melody or voice.
Next time you hear the song, you can guarantee if I am listening to it as well I am focusing on the part where they say “Love…like I’m gonna lose you.”
