All of Me Lyrics

"All Of Me"

[Verse 1:]
What would I do without your smart mouth?
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
You've got my head spinning, no kidding, I can't pin you down
What's going on in that beautiful mind
I'm on your magical mystery...

    It's about domestic violence, talks about her smart mouth, can't pin her down... Beating her down... Make up sex, even when he loses he's winning...

    I Think it is about relationships with others. Sometimes we love until it hurts. People that we entrusted with ours hearts can be the very same ones that tries to destroy your soul. You must come to your own conclusions--whether to forgive, forget and continue to love that person or know when to just cut bait and live for yourself because this person will never change and will continue to hurt you probably forever.

    As someone who has lived with a loved one who struggles with a mood disorder, this song is clearly about loving someone with mental illness."all your curves and all your edges", "can't pin you down" speak to what could be severe mood swings and the unpredictability that comes with certain types of mental illness.

    The phrase "beautiful mind" is a coded clue to this interpretation, a reference to the Russell Crowe movie of the same name, in which Crowe plays a schizophrenic mathematician.

    Legend does not try to disguise the meaning of the song: "the world's beating you down, i'm around through every mood". People with mood disorders find the world, at times, unbearable, and that there is no place for them in it. A short time later they might tell you they are fine, and enjoying writing a review of their new favorite movie.The lows are very low, the highs, very high.Even though he is professing his absolute devotion to his love,there is a feeling of melancholy in the music.

    This is a beautiful song-brave, personal, moving, and honest. Cheers to John Legend. Thanks for sharing.

    I think it's both love and physical sexual attractions.

    I don't know if he's singing about a relationship he's in currently, was in or wants to be in. Either way it's easy to understand his feelings for her. He is putting himself completely out there for her giving his all and hopes she will do the same.

    I think this is about an impossible relationship that wan never expected to happen, but now that they are in it they love each other so much. The girl has self confidence troubles, and he is trying to tell her that she is beautiful no matter what. He says he loves everything about her, and even her flaws are beautiful, because they make her who she is.

    I'm addicted to this song. His voice is amazing. I think its about their love for each other and about how she makes him feel. Nothing else matters except their love for each other that's all that he needs and with it he can get through anything in life. I think we underestimate the power of love and John hits it perfectly in this song.

    He loves her completely. Everything about her. He'll give his all to her and she'll give her all to him. She's his beginning and his end. It's a love song!

    I think its about somebody who is deeply in love and will give everything and will go through the ends of the world with him/her and wants the person to know how deep the love is
