This is a strong love song.
“Come on daddy face the future. Why don’t you smile? Trust in me, and I’ll be worthy of you… have the faith that I have in you… We can get along if only you trust in me.”
Had my iPod on shuffle today and this song came on. Now I know that Etta James doesn’t agree with beyoncé interpretation of this one. And when listen to the Etta’s version one can understand why. Etta sounds so real, so tormented and in love. Begging for the only thing that can keep a relationship going. That unconditional trust. The one that takes people down the aisle. Much love to all of the couples that put their faith there. I can cry to this one.
