Another Amazing Song to Learn American English with : All of Me by John Legend

This song is just amazing, isn't it? The person I am dating says we should totally make this the song we play for our wedding too. How sweet, huh? Anyhow, this song is pretty popular in the United States right now so I thought I would share it with you. If you didn't know already, John Legend is an American singer-songwriter and actor.

 

I have added some words in parentheses to the lyrics below to clean up the grammar and to make them easier to understand for non-native English speakers. I hope that helps. :)

 

Does anyone know how or where to post this stuff so that English learners in China can access this kind of content?


All of Me by John Legend -- Music Video @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=518WB1IcjPI


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 ride.
And I'm so dizzy... (that I) don't know what hit me, but I'll be alright!

 

My head's under water,
But I'm breathing fine.
You're crazy and I'm out of my mind...

 

'Cause all of me
Loves all of you.
(I) Love your curves and all your edges,
(and I love) All your perfect imperfections.
Give your all to me
(And) I'll give my all to you!
You're my end and my beginning.
Even when I lose, I'm winning,
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh!

 

How many times do I have to tell you?
Even when you're crying, you're beautiful too!
(When) The world is beating you down, I'm around through every mood.
You're my downfall. You're my muse,
My worst distraction, (and) my rhythm and blues!
I can't stop singing. It's ringing in my head for you.

 

My head's under water,
But I'm breathing fine.
You're crazy and I'm out of my mind...


'Cause all of me
Loves all of you.
(I) Love your curves and all your edges,
(and I love) All your perfect imperfections.
Give your all to me,
(and) I'll give my all to you.
You're my end and my beginning.
Even when I lose, I'm winning,
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh!

 

Give me all of you!
(The) Cards (are) on the table, (and) we're both showing hearts,
Risking it all, (even) though it's hard...

 

'Cause all of me
Loves all of you.
(I) Love your curves and all your edges,
(and I love) All your perfect imperfections.
Give your all to me,
(and) I'll give my all to you.
You're my end and my beginning.
Even when I lose, I'm winning,
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you!

 

I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh!

Thank you so much, Haru, for posting a link Chinese speakers can listen to it at. :) That is too funny about the younger crowd using VPN to access the content! Hehehehehe :D *chuckle*

Oh, my friend just recommended this song to me almost one month ago. Haha. It's a very beautiful song. We can watch the MV here via http://v.yinyuetai.com/video/778452 ;


Even though some web sites are blocked, I think most of young Chinese people use VPN. Haha.
