#SongLyricSunday ♫ “The Sweetest Taboo” by Sade

SongLyricSunday

Happy Sunday! It’s time for SLS again, hosted by Helen at This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time. If you’d like to join in the fun or check out all of the other participating blogs to see what their weekly pick is, then follow the link to Helen’s page!

This week’s theme is: Falling

Of course, the first song to pop into my head was “Falling” by Alicia Keys, because c’mon, it’s 100% spot on for this theme, right? It is, and I hope someone picks it.

For me, I wanted something a little less…already in a relationship and more toward the process of getting there; the newness of it all. I mean “falling” is supposed to be one of the singular most amazing experiences of our lives. It is largely ruled by our hope and the happiness that other person makes us feel, but also apprehension in expressing our feelings, the fear they may not be reciprocated.

Despite not having a huge selection of lyrics, I love the energy of this song and think it easily conveys all of those initial, complex feelings of falling in love; the awe, the joy, the fear and the hope…Enjoy!

If I tell you
If I tell you now
Will you keep on
Will you keep on loving me?
If I tell you
If I tell you how I feel
Will you keep bringing out the best in me?

You give me, you give me the sweetest taboo
You give me, you’re giving me the sweetest taboo
Too good for me

There’s a quiet storm
And it never felt like this before
There’s a quiet storm
That is you

There’s a quiet storm
And it never felt this hot before
Giving me something that’s taboo
(Sometimes I think you’re just too good for me)
You give me the sweetest taboo
That’s why I’m in love with you (with you)
You give me the sweetest taboo
Too good for me
(Sometimes I think you’re just too good for me)

I’d do anything for you
I’d stand out in the rain
Anything you want me to do
don’t let it slip away

There’s a quiet storm
And it never felt like this before
There’s a quiet storm
I think it’s you

There’s a quiet storm
And I never felt this hot before
Giving me something that’s taboo
You give me the (you give me, you give me the) sweetest taboo
That’s why I’m in love with you (with you)
You give me, keep giving me the sweetest taboo
Too good for me

You’ve got the biggest heart
Sometimes I think you’re just too good for me
Every day is Christmas, and every night is New Year’s Eve
Will you keep on loving me?
Will you keep on, will you keep on
Bringing out the best in me?
