This is a beautiful song and one that I love to dance to, holding someone special real close feeling the warmth and love flow between us.

I've always loved this song. For some reason though, for me, I just translate it differently. This song feels like a conversation with God. It's like, when people turn their backs on you for being different and not fitting in, God will accept you just the way you are. It's a tendency with love songs in general, sure they can be dedicated to other people, and also to oneself, and / or a higher power. I just have an odd brain I guess, lol. :)

So true people are always trying to change others. If you don't love someone just the way they are you don't really love them.!
