Songbird

For you, there'll be no crying
For you, the sun will be shining
'Cause I feel that when I'm with you
It's alright
I know it's right

And the songbird keep singing like they know the score
And I love you, I love you, I love you
Like never before

To you, I would give the world
To you, I'd never be cold
'Cause I feel that when I'm with you
It's alright
I know it's right

And the songbirds keep singing like they know the score
And I love you, I love you, I love you
Like never before
Like never before
Like never before

Someone has suggested me to search this song from youtube,
Eva Cassidy Songbird.  Here I'm writing a bit on personal taking
of the song.

Voice-wise, without trying to understand what the song is about,
combination of tunes and voice of Eva is soothing the soul.  Just
by listening to the tunes itself, may bring comfort.

As of lyrics - in my thinking, it is a one-side story telling how
the passion she puts in love without going further to analyze
how the other may response.  The songbird represents comparison
by putting score into word in the lyrics even though there is no
strict confirmation to compare who loves more.

This song is really showing how oneself showering the love she
has, the passion, comfort, assurance - for her, he is her world,
her everything - a promise that as long as she is with him,
the world will be okay.

Love and life, when we put together when in love, it is awesome.
But when it comes to reality when love and life has merged into
one, the reality is the life-fact one needs to deal with.

Again, it's all about relationship.  I believe in nurture.  No matter
how much we love at first, without nurturing, taking care of the
feeling itself when sailing the life together - everything will just
go back to zero.  
It is just like me and my garden.  In order to have a lovely
garden, I need to diligently and commit to trim of some parts
of the plants, of the leaves every week - to allow them grow
nicely and harmoniously in my garden, flowers and seeds - all
in nice shape.  That's how I see love and relationship.
Again, nice claps require both parties.  We just really can't
produce a clap without the hand of the others.

Thank you for sharing the song with me.  God bless!

It was & is truly my pleasure & simple honor to share that special version of what was already a very special & personal song, originally written, composed & performed by Miss Christine McVee of Fleetwood Mac. It was already a very special song to me, but its turned into something almost life changing in Eva's gentle but capable hands. The sincerity with which she performs it, coupled with her blessed 'Karen Carpenter level' natural vocal ability, has turned the head and caught the attention of nearly everyone who has heard it. I actually get goosebumps EVERY time I hear this version, right when the backup vocal accompanies the lead vocal, wow.
Im so very glad you trusted me enough to take the time to act upon my humble suggestion. The result has been as I'd hoped & expected; the sharing of a beautiful, special song with an equally beautiful, special person. Merry XMas dear lady. :-)
