New Music Video: John Legend “You & I”

I am such a sucker for a good love song.  This has been my favorite song on John Legend’s new album ‘Love In The Future‘ since its release. After seeing what a great job he did with the video I just keep falling in love with the song all over again.

You fix your make up, just so
Guess you don’t know, that your beautiful
Try on every dress that you own
You were fine in my eyes, a half hour ago

If your mirror won’t make it any clearer I’ll
Be the one to let you know

Out of all the girls
You my one and only girl
Ain’t nobody in the world tonight
