For Once In My Life

For Once In My Life - Tony Bennet

For once in my life I've got someone who needs me, someone I've needed so long
For once unafraid I can go where life leads me, and somehow I know I'll be strong
For once I can touch what my heart used to dream of
Long before I knew someone warm like you
Could make my dreams come true
For once in my life I won't let sorrow hurt me, not like it's hurt me before
For once I've got someone I know won't desert me, and I'm not alone anymore
For once I can say: "This is mine you can't take it"
As long as I've got love I know I can make it
For once in my life I've got someone who needs me

My sister's stories about her friend's tragic love life made me look at you and think with wonder. I thought about the first time we met before I went to sleep my hand held in yours. And watching Tony Bennet on American Idol singing this from the heart made me realize how lucky I am to have you.

Thank you for loving me.

American Idol ramblings

So. Melinda got the boot. And now there are only two. This event made me reminisce AI moments of the past season. Still ranking no.1 on my list is Carrie Underwood's rendition of Heart's "Alone". And even if two seasons have passed, it still gives me goosebumps.

BTW, Season 4 is still the best AI for me. ;)
