Monumental Soundbyte - 40

Edwin McCain - I'll Be

*Remember to press play on the player under the soundbyte sidebar to hear this song*

Anyone who is a regular American Idol fan will recognise this song. I mean, this song has been used during auditions over and over again. Some people have done it justice, while others have just butchered the song. I remember Edwin McCain actually coming on one of the shows to express how he felt about his song being a favorite. Hilarious!

I remember belting this song out over and over again with eyes closed. LOL. For some reason the words and melody to this song, struck me. Almost like the song is mine alone....Weird i know but its why it makes this list....

Its one of those songs that is a pleasure to listen to. And the words? Amazingly beautiful.....So i leave you with the words. Enjoy!

The strands in your eyes that color them wonderful
Stop me and steal my breath
Emeralds from mountains thrust toward the sky
Never revealing their depth

Tell me that we belong together
Dress it up with the trappings of love
I'll be captivated
I'll hang from your lips
Instead of the gallows of heartache that hang from above

I'll be your crying shoulder
I'll be love's suicide
I'll be better when I'm older
I'll be the greatest fan of your life

Rain falls angry on the tin roof
As we lie awake in my bed
You're my survival, you're my living proof
My love is alive not dead

Tell me that we belong together
Dress it up with the trappings of love
I'll be captivated
I'll hang from your lips
Instead of the gallows of heartache, that hang from above

I'll be your crying shoulder
I'll be love's suicide
I'll be better when I'm older
I'll be the greatest fan of your life

I've been dropped out, burned up, fought my way back from the dead
Tuned in, turned on,
Remembered the things that you said

I'll be your crying shoulder
I'll be love's suicide
I'll be better when I'm older
I'll be the greatest fan of your life
