Like You'll Never See Me Again

I just got my hands on the new Alicia Keys CD, As I Am and at first listen, it is a really good R&B record with honest, soulful singing and heartfelt lyrics. And it doesn't come any more heartfelt than track #5, Like You'll Never See Me Again.

It's a song about not taking things for granted, especially when it comes to our loved ones. How many times have we found ourselves in situations where we don't realise how much we loved or even needed someone till the day that person goes away or is lost forever from our lives? It is easy to forget about the people around you, but it is also equally easy to call Dad to wish him happy birthday; or to give Mum a hug and a thank you for the delicious chicken minestrone at dinner; or to just send an sms at lunchtime to your loved one just to say I Miss You, even if you just saw him/her that very morning. 'Coz you'll never know, that might be the last time you'll ever see them again.

If I had no more time
No more time left to be here
Would you cherish what we had?
Was it everything that you were looking for?
If I couldn’t feel your touch
And no longer were you with me
I’d be wishing you were here
To be everything that I’d be looking for
I don’t wanna forget the present is a gift
And I don’t wanna take for granted the time you may have here with me
‘Cause Lord only knows another day is not really guaranteed

So every time you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
Every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you’ll never see me again
Every time you touch me
Touch me like this is the last time
Promise that you’ll love me
Love me like you’ll never see me again

How many really know what love is?
Millions never will
Do you know until you lose it
That it’s everything that we are looking for
When I wake up in the morning
You’re beside me
I’m so thankful that I found
Everything that I been looking for

I don’t wanna forget the present is a gift
And I don’t wanna take for granted the time you may have here with me
‘Cause Lord only knows another day is not really guaranteed

So everytime you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
Every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you’ll never see me again
Every time you touch me
Touch me like this is the last time
Promise that you’ll love me
Love me like you’ll never see me again

Bro...tetiba jer melodramatik ni kenapa??...nobody prepare for any lost, lost means that we feel sad about it. But that's a good advise and request. I'll do it for somebody I love so much....

Amazonman said...

Itulah... memang tiada yg akan prepared for any lost.... tetiba je kalau lost, tak sempat pulak say good bye ke... I lap you ke.... kan terharu sangat? hehehe

Anyway, hujung tahun camni, memang mood i akan jadi mellow sikit.... tak tahulah kenapa....

Josh said...

Waa... very the sentimental one.

Reminds me of another song with similar sentiments

"If Tomorrow Never Comes" by Garth Brooks

Amazonman said...

Josh: Actually the song very the powderful one..... just like her previous hit song If I Ain't Got You.

Nick: Yeah, that one too. Hey have u heard Garth's latest: More Than A Memory? Also very sad song lah.

Nickxandar said...

Gave up my spurs and cowboy hat after coming back to Malaysia :) The last of his CDs that I bought was "Fresh Horses" :-)
