Halo

Just so you know, B and I listen to more than just Miley Cirus and Miranda Cosgrove. I mean, I realize we are both parents who are up to our eyeballs in Disney and bubblegum, but seriously. I mean, we're both over 30 for Pete's sake. For that reason I would like for you to please ignore the fact that I texted B last week and asked him what song I should download and he said, "When You Look Me In The Eyes by the Jonas Brothers." Which was, in fact, a wonderful song. Beautiful and full of love. So, ignore that.



I'd like to direct your attention instead to a song that has been out forEVER. It's a song I liked but never really listened to until a week ago Sunday when I was following B home from church. He was sitting in front of me in his truck at the stoplight when the song came on. By the time we made it 3 blocks, I was bawling like an idiot.





Halo

by Beyonce Knowles



Remember those walls I built
Well baby they're tumbling down
And they didn't even put up a fight
They didn't even make a sound


I found a way to let you in
But I never really had a doubt
Standing in the light of your halo
I got my angel now


It's like I've been awakened
Every rule I had you're breakin'
It's the risk that I'm takin'
I ain't never gonna shut you out


Everywhere I'm looking now
I'm surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you're my saving grace


You're everything I need and more
It's written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
I pray it won't fade away


I can feel your halo
I can see your halo
I can feel your halo
I can see your halo


Hit me like a ray of sun
Burning through my darkest night
You're the only one that I want
Think I'm addicted to your light


I swore I'd never fall again
But this don't even feel like falling
Gravity can't even
Pull me to the ground again


Feels like I've been awakened
Every rule I had you're breakin'
It's the risk that I'm takin'
I'm never gonna shut you out


Everywhere I'm looking now
I'm surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you're my saving grace


You're everything I need and more
It's written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
I pray it won't fade away

  1. Goodness, you are so stinkin' cute in love an all! Have fun, enjoy, and love, love, love that cutie. I think he loves you and the kiddos right back. I feel like I'm back in junior high, except for the kiddo part and the real love part. Lucky girl, lucky boy. Your kiddos were lucky already.

  2. When my daughter first heard this song, she ran home and said, "Mom, this song reminds me of you and daddy."
