All The Man That I Need

I have been nominated for the 3-Day Lyric Challenge by talesfromthemindofkristian  who this week has been delighting us with Norwegian folk music…but who normally features top picks from the cream of classic crooners – some of my all-time favourite tunes.  I have always applauded Kristian’s musical choices.

Have a look at Kristian’s post below to see what is involved in this very fun challange:

The Rules:

1 Thank the person who nominated you – thank you Kristian!
2 Share one of your favourite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
3 Nominate three other bloggers each day. 


I have shared many of my favourite songs in previous posts…but there is room for more I am sure.  As I am soon going to lose him, I am going to make this a Goldfinch themed challenge.

So first up on Day One of The Challenge, is a song that I have been singing to Goldfinch this past weekend.  I sang it to him while walking hand in hand in the autumn sunshine, I sang it to him when we curled up on the sofa relaxing in my little nest, and I sang it to him while he held me close and we danced under a moonlit sky during the otherwise silent hours of Monday morning.

How do you know that you can actually hold a tune? When the man who is holding your hand doesn’t find you an embarrassment and try to shut you down!  Or else he is just really really kind!  Or thinks it’s hilarious to let myself make a fool of myself!  The jury is out on that one!


I used to cry myself to sleep at night
But that was all before he came
I thought love had to hurt to turn out right
But now he’s here
It’s not the same, it’s not the same

He fills me up
He gives me love
More love than I’ve ever seen
He’s all I’ve got,
He’s all I’ve got in this world
But he’s all the man that I need

And in the morning when I kiss his eyes
He takes me down and rocks me slow
And in the evening when the moon is high
He holds me close and won’t let go
He won’t let go
