Music Prompt #34 “Love Me Like You Do” by Ellie Goulding – As You Do

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJtDXIazrMo

You lie nestled against my arm

As the morning light filters through.

You whisper in the voice

Of one who has been loved.

Write to me of love

Of your light that guides my way.

Tempt me and arouse me, as you do.

 

Some days you say your life meant nothing

When you were alone and unlovable.

Once we shared that feeling

But today I know I’m not alone.

One thing I thought I’d never have is YOU!

I’m grateful for everyday

Knowing each morning you are here

To reach out and find comfort.

When demons intrude

And life goes sour

I know your arms are always there.

 

I know to resist

Can lead to tears

When we stand in life’s way.

So one day at a time

I say over and over

I love you I love you.

You keep me from sadness

Multiply my gladness.

So when I write to you of love

Its words of gratitude I pen

Knowing how lucky I have been

In the hands of fate

To be loved as I am

And to love you, as I do.
