I Choose You - Sara Bareilles


by Minerva Carrillo

The ExperienceTell the world that we finally got it all right. I choose you. I will become yours and you will become mine. I choose you. When the right person comes along nothing else matters. We feel complete and we are ready to commit...to a love that will last forever.


Music video: The video presents two marriage proposals. Both take a lot of preparation - and a lot of road already traveled together. But an interesting question pops up when Sara Bareilles puts a lesbian couple up next to hetero couple (similar to what happens fleetingly in Katy Perry's Unconditionally): are both relationships
 being the other half in the same way? The externals are all the same in I Choose You - the party, the ring, the proposal, even Sara herself. But can two people who aren't as different or as complementary - physically, emotionally, psychologically - as a man and a woman are, truly be two halves in the same puzzle?

Meaning of I Choose You: In life it's up to us to choose who we want to spend the rest of our lives with. Love can be tricky and hard, we need to be ready to forgive and learn from our mistakes. Once we truly commit ourselves, then we will start writing that beautiful lifelong love letter. 


Ask yourself: Why do I pick the friends and loved ones who I choose? 


LYRICS:

Let the bough break, let it come down crashing
Let the sun fade out to a dark sky
I can't say I'd even notice it was absent
Cause I could live by the light in your eyes

I'll unfold before you
Would have strung together
The very first words
Of a lifelong love letter

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you
(Yeah)

There was a time when I would have believed them
If they told me you could not come true
Just love's illusion
But then you found me and everything changed
And I believe in something again

My whole heart
Will be yours forever
This is a beautiful start
To a lifelong love letter

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you

We are not perfect
We'll learn from our mistakes
And as long as it takes
I will prove my love to you

I am not scared of the elements
I am under-prepared, but I am willing
And even better
I get to be the other half of you

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you

I choose you
