The TRUTH for Tuesday

so last night Babe and I were listening to music and trying to decide on songs for
the first dance,
the father/daughter  dance (for him & Sweet Pea) 
and the music the girls were going to walk into.
And as we were playing the songs it just brought us back to a place of love and contentment
(well at least it did for me)
I listened to each one and was able to recall a moment or feeling that we have shared over the past 10 
(yes TEN!!!) years with each other.
amazing.
so this morning I was inspired to put on my "Lurve Songs" mix and the 3rd song in is this:

I LOVE this song.
I remember when my BFF Michelle got married 6 years ago and we were discussing this song, I liked it then but couldn't really relate wholly as I wasn't sure that I knew/understood what it meant to have the TRUTH.....
and now....
I DO.
Literally.
 here are the lyrics:

"The Truth"

[Spoken:]
Let me tell you why I love him

[Chorus:]
Cause he is the truth
Said he is so real
And I love the way that he makes me feel
And if I am a reflection of him then I must be fly cause
his light it shines so bright I wouldn't lie

[Verse 1:]
I remember the very first day that I saw him
I found myself immediately intrigued by him
Its almost like I knew this man from another life
Like back then maybe I was his husband and maybe he was my wife
And even, the things I don't like about him are fine with me
Because its not hard for me to understand him because he's so much like me
And its truly my pleasure to share his company
And I know that it's God's gift to breathe the air he breathes

[Repeat Chorus]

[Verse 2:]
How can the same man that makes me so mad
-do you know what he did-[spoken]
Turn right around and kiss me so soft
-girl do you know what he did-[spoken]
If he ever left me, I wouldn't even be sad, no
Cause there's a blessing in every lesson
And I'm glad that I knew him at all

[Repeat Chorus]

I love the way he speaks
I love the way he thinks
I love the way he treats his mama
I love that gap in between his teeth
I love him in every way that a woman can love a man from personal to universal but most of all its unconditional

-you know what I'm talking about-[spoken]
Thats the way I feel
-and I always will-[spoken]

There ain't no substitute for the truth
either it is or isnt
cause he is the truth
you see the truth it, needs no proof
either it is or it isnt
Cause he is the truth
Now you know the truth by the way it feels
and if I am a reflection of him then I must be fly
cause he is yes he is
I wonder does he know [echoes]



(p.s. that's my friend Tai Boogie in the video - they were an actual real live couple at the time and if I remember correctly she wrote this song for him.....swoon)
