[Verse 1:]
What would I do without your smart mouth?
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
You've got my head spinning, no kidding, I can't pin you down
What's going on in that beautiful mind
I'm on your magical mystery ride
And I'm so dizzy, don't know what hit me, but I'll be alright

[Pre-Chorus:]
My head's under water
But I'm breathing fine

You're crazy and I'm out of my mind

[Chorus:]
'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections

Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning

Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh

[Verse 2:]
How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you're crying you're beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I'm around through every mood

You're my downfall, you're my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can't stop singing, it's ringing, in my head for you


[Pre-Chorus:]
My head's under water
But I'm breathing fine

You're crazy and I'm out of my mind

[Chorus:]
'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning

Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, oh

[Bridge:]
Give me all of you
Cards on the table, we're both showing hearts
Risking it all, though it's hard


[Chorus:]
'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you

I give you all of me
And you give me all of you
, oh

    I was so lonely and brokenhearted that time when I heard this beautiful song and this song touches my heart and soul. I hope and pray that one day a special someone whom I want to be with in my life would sing this song for me. I super love this song. John Legend, thank you for making great songs like this.

    I don't listen to new music that often but I was listening to the blend and this song came on yesterday. As soon as I got a chance, I texted my husband of 15 years to tell him to find this song! I told him I wish it would have been available for our wedding. We still feel this way about each other and we both definitely have "perfect imperfections"! I love the way it describes a balanced relationship. Marriage definitely takes "all" of husband and wife!

    This song is so beautiful. The lyrics are so good: they describe all of the feelings John Legend had when he wrote this song. I purposed to my girlfriend with this song while i was playing it on the guitar. It was so beautiful she cried and we had good sex. So good we did it another time and another time it was awesome. And I can't go to school because I am to tired to follow any lesson. So I am skipping school for a proposel. know it's weird that I purposed my girlfriend while I'm still on high school. But I love her so much I want to live with her for the rest of my live and we'll have two kids and a dog and I'll get a good job and I'll work a lot so my girlfriend don't needs to work and she can take care of the kids. So that's my future. Don't dare to comment on it except it's a good comment. I love her and she loves me so no one can hold me back to my ideal future. If someone does I'll kill him because of him my future collapsed. And I don't like that.

    This song is amazing. John's beautiful words once again put down to make the most beautiful song. I think that this song means that his beautiful wife drives him crazy (the good kind of crazy) and he loves her unconditionally. She goes through things and he's there for her. She's the one and only girl for him. She's everything to him. This song would make the best wedding song. Love is beautiful and one of a kind.

    I think this song is kind of like Just the Way You Are by Bruno Mars. Both artists are trying to explain that to them, this girl is perfect, even when the girl doesn't think so.
    It's also about unconditional love. It's like, even though that you have imperfections, I still love you because you're my one and only. There's this one special person in my life that I would love to sing this song to, or do something with this song, because this song is just so meaningful. Another thing: it's not filled with a lot of trash that most songs are made up of. This is raw, from the heart and soul, and is just amazing. And when you're in love, they are you're distraction. You can't focus when they're around, you think about them when you sleep and when you wake up. This song captures the essence of true and unconditional love for a person, even when they are imperfect and human. Anyone who has experienced true, real, love knows that this is what it feels like 95% of the time. Once again, such a meaningful song, so beautiful, raw, and rare in the sea of today's modern music.
