Give me light

This song doesn’t have an official version in YouTube or SoundCloud. There are many covers available. Liked this one in particular. You might have to listen to it from here if you wanna hear Adele sing it (took a while to find it but I refused to choose another song for today).

One of my very favorite songs from her latest album. I know this coincides with Valentine’s day and it might seem very appropriate and it probably might be too 😉 but nevertheless when can I ever say no to a very good Adele song heh? So here is Adele for you, as part of today’s Song Lyric Sunday, singing I miss you‘ from her latest album 25.

Lyrics from Direct Lyrics

[Adele]
I want every single piece of you
I want your heaven and your ocean’s too!
Treat me soft but touch me cruel
I want to teach you things you never knew

Bring the floor up to my knees
Let me fall into your gravity
And kiss me back to life to see
Your body standing over me

Baby don’t let the lights go down
Baby don’t let the lights go down
Baby don’t let the lights go down
Baby don’t let the lights go down
Lights go down, lights go down
Lights go down, lights go down
Lights go down, lights go down
(Down, down, down, down)

I miss you when the lights go out
It illuminates all of my doubts
Pull me in, hold me tight
Don’t let go, baby give me light
I miss you when the lights go out
It illuminates all of my doubts
Pull me in, hold me tight
Don’t let go, baby give me light

I love the way your body moves
Towards me from across the room
Brushing past my every groove
No one has me like you do
In your heart I bring my soul
But be delicate with my ego
I wanna step into your great unknown
With you and me setting the tone

Baby don’t let the lights go down
Baby don’t let the lights go down
Baby don’t let the lights go down
Baby don’t let the lights go down
Lights go down, lights go down
Lights go down, lights go down
Lights go down, lights go down
Down, down, down, down

I miss you when the lights go out
It illuminates all of my doubts
Pull me in, hold me tight
Don’t let go, baby give me light
I miss you when the lights go out
It illuminates all of my doubts
Pull me in, hold me tight
Don’t let go, baby give me light

We place all love into the dark
‘Cause we are living worlds apart
It only makes it harder baby
It only makes it harder baby
Harder baby, harder baby

I miss you when the lights go out
It illuminates all of my doubts
Pull me in, hold me tight
Don’t let go, baby give me light
I miss you when the lights go out
It illuminates all of my doubts
Pull me in, hold me tight
Don’t let go, baby give me light

I miss you, I miss you…
I miss you, I miss you…
I miss you, I miss you…

 

Mrs or Ms – Which to use

I never liked the word ‘Mrs’. Never. I don’t know why. I preferred Ms. ever since I knew that it can be used to address a woman irrespective of her marital status. But I never really knew why we have a Miss, Mrs and a new Ms for that matter. It was just known that we address all men as Mr. and married women as Mrs. and unmarried women as Miss. May be I thought it was unfair that men get to be addressed by only one prefix whereas women had to change their prefixes based on their marital status. I am not sure the reasons I had at that time. But now I think I prefer to be addressed as Ms forever, especially after reading this article, What is Mrs. short for?. Whoa! The etymology of those words !

If you happen to read that article, make sure to read the comments too, which are more entertaining.
