The Love We Make by: Rodney Atkins

The Love We Make lyrics

I’m not the man you see in all those movies
Or read about in all those fashion magazines
I won’t build you monuments
Or fill your purse with rubies
Baby that’s not me

But I will hold you while you’re sleeping
And I will be there when you wake
And we can fill up the whole world
With all the love we make

I may never be a man of great position
Never be a new aged sensitive guy
But I will hear you every time you whisper
I’ll feel it when you cry

And I will hold you while you’re sleeping
And I will be there when you wake
And we can fill the seven seas
With all the love we make

Till the last day of forever
I know we’ll be joined together
And I will stand by you
I’ll be loving you

And I will hold you while you’re sleeping
And I will be there when you wake
And we can fill up the whole world
With all the love we make
All the love we make baby
All the love we make

LYRICS

He said: “Just think it over, and write me a list,
“So we can figure out what we both deserve.”
She hardly could believe it, that their love had come to this:
Dividing an’ deciding his and hers.
But she grabbed a paper napkin, an’ asked the waitress for a pen.
An’ one by one, she wrote down what she wanted most from him.

“Honesty, sincerity, tenderness and trust.
“A little less time for the rest of the world,
“And more for the two of us.
“Kisses each mornin’, ‘I love you’s’ at night,
“Just like it used to be.
“The way life was when you were in love with me.”

She reached across the table an’ placed it in his hand,
An’ said: “You know this isn’t easy for me.”
As he thought about the new car, the house an’ the land,
An’ wondered what that bottom line would be.
An’ a thousand other things that she’d want him to leave behind,
But he never dreamed he’d open up that napkin and find:

“Honesty, sincerity, tenderness and trust.
“A little less time for the rest of the world,
“And more for the two of us.
“Kisses each mornin’, ‘I love you’s’ at night,
“Just like it used to be.
“The way life was when you were in love with me.”

Well, he fought back the tears, as he looked in her eyes,
An’ said: “I don’t know where to start.”
An’ she said: “Everything on that list in your hand,
“Is hidden somewhere in your heart.

“Honesty, sincerity, just like it used to be.
“The way life was when you were in love with me.”

Just Amazed

I was just browsing for funny videos uploaded on Youtube when these videos of Maria Aragon and Anna Graceman just popped in the lists of popular videos. I decided to download the video and watch it only to be super amazed with their very awesome voices. I just felt so happy for their are kids (11 years olds) who could sing just so wonderfully.

I, then took some time to search for their personal profiles to know everything about them. Upon reading the story behind Anna Graceman becoming a singer/writer, I remembered my child Isha who is two years old now. She just loves singing anytime she wants to. She has these songs which she have heard from listening and watching local singers (because she’s a fan of the native singers in our place) which she wants to sing over and over. She also goes to Sunday school with her sister Jasmine and was taught with lots of wonderful praise songs that she really want to sing when she’s at home. Jasmine would sometimes sing with her but she loves dancing more than singing. A thought just came to my mind “I should listen to her everytime she sings and nurture her talent.”

Thanks to inspirations like these ones. They help me realize things like:

“Me, a young mom, with two wonderful and talented kids in my life should be thankful despite the many challenges.”
