The most perfect song lyrics ever

February 5, 2006

Otis Redding – “That’s How Strong My Love Is” is possibly the most lyrically beautiful song ever written. Such vivid and gorgeous imagery. I suggest you all go out and buy an Otis Redding album and listen to nothing else for the rest of your lives.

If I was the Sun way up there
I’d go with love most everywhere
I’ll be the moon when the sun goes down
Just to let you know that I’m still around.

That’s how strong my love is, woh
that’s how strong my love is.
Thats how strong my love is baby. baby
that’s how strong my love is.

I’ll be the weeping willow drowning in my tears
And you can go swimming when you are here
I’ll be the rainbow after the tears are gone
Wrap you in my colors and keep you warm.

That’s how strong my love is, darling
That’s how strong my love is, baby
That’s how strong my love is, woh
That’s how strong my love is.

I’ll be the ocean so deep and wide
And catch all the tears whenever you cry
I’ll be the breeze after the storm is gone
To dry your eyes and love you all warm.

That’s how strong my love is, baby
That’s how strong my love is now
That’s how strong my love is, darling
That’ show strong my love is, again now.

That’s how strong my love is, so deep and wide
thats how strong my love
So much to love, yes so much to love, woh
there’s so much love, there’s so much love
Anything the sun can do I will do it for you
Any kind of love you want, I’ll be with you.
