Song #21: You (Don't) Complete Me

While it's a romantic notion to consider someone as your "other half", I wonder if that's the healthiest way to live out your days with someone, Jerry Maguire. If a significant other is where you go for soul-level fulfillment or to fill an incomplete void in you, that's a scary setup for both parties and tees the ball up for some major disappointment sooner or later. You've got to find that outside and then re-enter the relationship with strength and an attitude that says "I'm here to give" - otherwise it's just need and codependency and all that messy stuff.

**In order to give credit where it is due, the lyric "You make my heart skip, but you don't make it beat" was my inspiration for this song and was penned by writer and good buddy Benjamin Madrid. He blogs song lyrics and other musings HERE - go check him out.

LYRICS:

You, you don't complete me

But you completely light up my sky

You, you don't fulfill me

But, girl, you thrill me every night

I chose you out of my strength, not out of need

You make my heart skip, but you don't make it beat

 

And everything you are to me is so good,

But I've got a confession

The only way I'm every thing I am to you

Is 'cause I've got a bigger mission

 

You, you don't make me,

But we'll be ok, see?

Because it's right

It's true that you relieve me

But if you must leave me

I'll be just fine

I chose you out of my strength, not out of need

You make my heart skip, but you don't make it beat

 

And everything you are to me is so good,

But I've got a confession

The only way I'm every thing I am to you

Is 'cause I've got a bigger mission

 

If there's a void inside your soul

Just know that I will never fill that hole
