The Problem with Lovesongs

Alice was not finished yet. Getting woozy from all the “love in the air”.

This morning, she was staring at the lyrics of the song, “Now That I Have You” by The Company.

Her friend, Jane, asked her assistance in surprising Jane’s boyfriend.

Jane, an a-capella  singer, plans to serenade Michael and she asked Alice to please oh please, hold the birthday cake, while Jane was singing.

Being the great friend that she was, Alice agreed.

Now looking at her friend make a spectacle of herself in front of Michael’s co-workers, she couldn’t help feeling … what the F am I doing here?

the lyrics to Jane’s lovesong — the one that made Alice woozy:

All my life it seemed
That something had been missing
I didn’t know what to do
Days would pass me by
Each as lonely as the other
Until I met you
REFRAIN:
You opened the door
And let the sunshine in
My life will never be the same again

CHORUS:
Now that I have you
Everything just seems so right
Now that I have you I’m alive
You are the song that I’ll be
Singing my whole life through
I’m living in a brighter world
Now that I have you

Looking ahead I see
The two of us together
I’ll never let you go
You’re so dear to me
And it isn’t any wonder
Why I love you so

REFRAIN:
You opened the door
And let the sunshine in
My life will never be the same again

CHORUS:
Now that I have you
Everything just seems so right
Now that I have you I’m alive
You are the song that I’ll be
Singing my whole life through
I’m living in a brighter world
Now that I have you

BRIDGE:
I feel this love is real
I see it in your eyes
You take my hand and I understand
You are mine
You are mine

CHORUS:
Now that I have you
Everything just seems so right
Now that I have you I’m alive
You are the song that I’ll be
Singing my whole life through
I’m living in a brighter world
Now that I have you
