Yup! That’s the way I’m calling it. The best love song I’ve heard in ages.
“The Woman I Love”
The first time I heard it was on Pandora, the live version of a simple guitar and Jason Mraz with his relaxed song styling.
Pleasantly surprising, refreshing.
But even more I found words and music that said what I’ve tried to explain for years.
I could be wrong but I think this is how most women want to be loved. Unconditionally, no matter what, regardless of our craziness, or our moods, or frustrations or tiredness or self-loathing. We just want what this song describes.
Well, I do anyway.
So I’m posting two versions for you to enjoy. First is the version I heard, live, just the guitar and Jason. The lyrics are there if you want to follow along. Or, you could close your eyes and just take in the song.
Then the second one is the official video with the backup band and visual interpretation. I prefer just to hear the words with the tune, get the meaning in my head, not someone else’s idea of what it means.
Either way, Thank you Jason Mraz, for a great love song in an era with so few really good ones.
“I’m holding steady, my heart’s at home…”
