"We Belong Together" as written by and Gavin Degraw....
We belong together
Like the open seas and shores
Wedded by the planet force
We've all been spoken for

The hammer may strike, be dead on the ground
A net to my hand, a cross on his crown
We're done if who we're undone
Finished if who we are incomplete
As one we are everything
We are everything we need

We belong together
Like the open seas and shores
Wedded by the planet force
We've all been spoken for

What good is a life, with no one to share
The light of the moon, the honor of a swear
We can try to live the way of which you speak
Taste the milk of your mother earth's love
Spread the word of consciousness you see
We are everything we need

We belong together
Like the open seas and shores
Wedded by the planet force
We've all been spoken for

All this indecision
All this independent strength
Still, we've got our hearts on safe
We've got our hearts on safe

Someday when you're lonely
Sometime after all this bliss
Somewhere lost in emptiness
I hope you find this gift...
I hope you find this gift...
I hope you find this gift...

    General CommentIt's that surest of sure feelings that burns within you, no matter how much it hurts to realize it, that you and this certain someone were just meant to be together, despite the obstacles that the two of you may face. Though lovers are constantly reminded that they may in fact just be fools in love, there is always that gut feeling that we all get in the beginning that we are all right, and in any relationship it is what we all must hold onto (: The fact that this song was chosen for one of my all-time favorite movies, Tristan + Isolde, just reiterates all that I've just said... Such a sad & heartbreaking story that beats to the very core of love. It's undeniable. Who hasn't felt this way once or twice in their lives? Keep that feeling no matter what. Your gut instinct, your first thought, is always the right one. Don't let anyone tell you any differently.

    General CommentHere are the proper lyrics taken directly from his album..

    We belong together
    Like the open seas and shores
    Wedded by the planet floors
    We've all been spoken for

    The hammer may strike
    Me dead on the ground
    A nail to my hand
    A cross on this crown
    But we're done if we're undone
    Finished if we are incomplete

    As one we are everything
    We are everything we need

    Chorus

    What good is a life
    With no one to share
    The light of the moon
    The honor of a swear
    A kingdom of man
    Is hollow within
    Without Depth
    Without the care
    That it takes to make a perfect love
    The passion to find the utter truth
    To visualize the straightened from the skewed
    To trade a common comfort for a view

    Will you try to live the way of which you speak
    Taste the milk of your Mother Earth's love
    Spread the word of consciousness you seek
    We are everything we need

    Chorus

    All this indecision
    All this independent strain
    Still we've got our hearts on save
    We've got our hearts on save

    Someday when you're lonely
    Sometime after all this bliss
    Somewhere lost in emptiness
    I hope you find this gift

    General CommentThis is by far the best song Gavin Degraw has ever penned and performed. And obviously, hands down, my new favorite song by him.

    While I enjoy most of the songs off Gavin's albums, he sometimes sacrifices lyrical content for something that sounds catchy, yet doesn't quite make sense (i.e.- Chariot). BUT, this song is absolutely amazing. He sings it with a convincing amount of anguish and passion, using his voice to his advantage, and Gavin never strays away from the message of the song- that being that these two people are nothing without each other, that their love binds them together until their ends.

    Just a wonderful, wonderful piece of work.
