Monumental Soundbyte - 73 (Playing in the sidebar)

Johnny Gill - You For Me

I was chatting with a dear friend yesterday and i got one of these links sent to me. And the person that sent it to me said to click on the engagement part of the link and i did. And i cried.

This proposal was so elaborate but sweet at the heart of it with the guy planning her birthday...with all her friends and family reading some words he had written for her and then praying for her. I cried.

So anyway, my friend i was chatting with almost made me cry again. So the result was a night thinking about proposals, weddings, soul mates and this song. This song was not meant to be on my list but its so heavily on my mind, i just had to share.

Johnny Gill who i think has an amazing voice has been absent for a very long time from music. So imagine my delight when he made a gues appearance and sang this amzing song in Tyler Perry's Madea's Family Reunion. Johnny brings the words of this song to life perfectly but its the words that are the true star of this song....Enjoy!

It Seems like forever
That i have waited for you
In a world of disappointment
One thing is true
God has blessed me
And He's blessed you too
In a world of lonely people
I've found you

Take my hand
And hold me close
And dont let me go
You for me
And me for you
Together we'll make one

We were once strangers
All by ourselves
Living alone
With noone else
But here you are
And its so so sweet
God must have done this
Made you for me

We were always sleeping under thirsting stars
Dreaming dreams of love
Wondering where you are
How blessed i am
That i found you
Now that you're here
I plan to say i do
