All Of Me Lyrics
Jump to:
[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 ride
And I'm so dizzy, don't know what hit me, but I'll be alright

[Bridge:]
My head's under water
But I'm breathing fine
You're crazy and I'm out of my mind

[Chorus:]
'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
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

[Verse 2:]
How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you're crying you're beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I'm around through every mood
You're my downfall, you're my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can't stop singing, it's ringing, in my head for you

[Bridge:]
My head's under water
But I'm breathing fine
You're crazy and I'm out of my mind

[Chorus:]
'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
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
Cards on the table, we're both showing hearts
Risking it all, though it's hard

[Chorus:]
'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
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

All Of Me Info:

All of Me is from John Legend's fourth studio album Love in the Future (2013). The song is a dedication to his wife Chrissy Teigen.

The song was inspired by his then fiancée Chrissy Teigen. The couple met in 2007 on the set of his video for "Stereo". He then married her in September 14, 2013. The song was produced by Dave Tozer and Legend himself.

"The overwhelming sensibility is one of optimism," Legend told BBC News about Teigen's influence on the album. "She's definitely affected my songwriting."

"We were inspired by that Imogen Heap song Hide And Seek he added, "it's kind of this a cappella tune going on with all the harmonizers. The robot harmonization is subtle - we didn't want to overdo it - but it lends a little cool character to the whole thing."
