"Beautiful Surprise" as written by and India Arie Simpson....
It's like yesterday
I didn't even know your name
Now today
You're always on my mind
I never could have predicted that I feel this way
You're beautiful surprise
Intoxicated every time I hear your voice
You've got me on a natural high
It's almost like I didn't even have a choice
You're beautiful surprise

Whatever it is you came to teach me
I am here to learn it cause
I believe that we're written in the stars
I don't know the future hopes
But I'm living in the moment
And I'm thankful for the man that you are, you are, you are
You are everything I ask for in my prayers
So I know my angels brought you to my life
Your energy is healing to my soul
You're beautiful surprise
You're inspiration to my life
You're the reason why I smile
You're beautiful surprise

    My InterpretationAfter our first date, I told my fiance that he was a "beautiful surprise." I wasn't even expecting to like him, so I mos def wasn't expecting to fall in love with him.... This will be one of our wedding songs because it amazes me how I wasn't even looking for a relationship or love, but he came along and changed my whole life.

    When we meet someone, we never know the positive impact that they will have on our lives. It's like one day you don't even know them, and the next day you can't stop thinking about them. This emotion is very real to me... Another point that she makes is that in relationships, we should be learning from one another. And we can't worry about the future; we have to live for and enjoy the present and ensure that we have a future together. Also, India is acknowledging that that man is "the bomb." He is everything that she asked for, everything that she needs...

    General Comment"It's like yesterday I didn't even know your name" .... isn't that how it goes? You never know when you're going to meet someone, and when you do, sometimes it's funny to think that just a few days ago you had no idea they existed.... they were walking around living a life and it just so happened that your paths crossed... and when u meet someone who can make u smile, well... it's a "beautiful surprise"

    General Commentits about how quickly you find yourself falling in love with someone, and how much a person can change you in such a short amount of time.

    its kindof like that feeling you get, when you just look at someone, and you know they are the person you were always supposed to be with and suddenly you realise this is what lifes all about, and nothing else matters.

    you are the reason why i smile.
