Yours - Russell Dickerson




The Experience: "The best me has his arms around you" and so "the worst me is just a long gone memory". What can you become with the support of the person you love?


Music videoIn the video Russell sings the song while walking down a country highway in the midst of a thunderstorm while dreaming of holding his beloved.

The Meaning of Yours: When you are in a healthy relationship the other person makes you an even better person (best me has his arms around you). They challenge you to become the best version of yourself (you make me better than I was beforeand you do the same for them. 

Ask yourself: Do you empower the person you love to become the best version of themselves? Do they empower you to do the same?

Album: YOURS (2016)

LYRICS:

I was a boat stuck in a bottle
that never got the chance to touch the sea
just forgot on the shelf no wind in the sails
going nowhere with no one but me

I was one in a hundred billion
a burn out star in a galaxy
just lost in the sky wondering why
everyone else shines out but me
but...

I came to life when I first kissed you
the best me has his arms around you
you make me better than I was before
Thank God I'm YOURS

I was a worn out set of shoes
wandering the city streets
another face in the crowd, head looking down
lost in the sound of a lonely melody

Empty pockets at a roulette
always landing on a lost bet
just live for the spin, hope for the win
go all in just to lose again but...

I came to life when I first kissed you
the best me has his arms around you
you make me better than I was before
Thank God I'm YOURS

The worst me is just a long gone memory
you put a new heartbeat inside of me
you make me better than I was before

Thank God I'm YOURS
