"I Choose You" as written by Sara Bareilles, Jason Blynn and Pete Harper....
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 that 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 underprepared,
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, yeah
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose
You
I choose
You

I choose
You

    General CommentThis is a tree’s self-reflection, as she expounds upon the true sun she needs and wants. She is told that she is standing in a forest. But she has discovered that this is “not all right,” deceived by those whose boughs shield her from “breaking” and by the sun by whose light she is “fed.” She is aware of her own inexperience away from her previous protectors, but she is impatient to be free to be true to herself. She cherishes the upcoming journey toward what she sees is her destiny, admittedly a messy process but part of her informed choice. It would demonstrate her incontrovertible partnership with her true source of nourishment, a relationship where the two are the figures in the equation of her life — her truth.

    General CommentBasically it's about finding the ONE person.

    All our lives we pray for the one,
    But then we 'grow up' and realize that it's just a childish fantasy,
    And then one day...we find them

    ...And we give our lives to them...the choice never was clearer...

    So we choose them :)

    Song MeaningI think this is a song by a woman who has been in previous relationships, maybe even has been married before. She's gotten it wrong before (been with the wrong man), and perhaps her man has also been married and divorced before also. ("Tell the world that we finally got it all right.") She never thought she would meet someone like the man she is currently involved with, and he completes her like nobody has ever done before. (Reference the second verse.) I really like this song, I think it is beautiful and full of hope.

    General CommentDefinitely about finding the One, in my opinion. The girl is talking about how her life and the world has gotten brighter now that she has found that on great love. She can finally let herself breath as she knows everything is going to be just fine as long as she's with her significant other.

    General CommentThis song conveys the thoughts of a mother to her unborn or just born child.

    The title "I choose you" reflects the woman's choice to become a mother versus other options.

    A mother's love is expressed in the line "I could live by the light in your eyes"

    The lifelong love of a mother for her child is expressed as a "My whole heart
    Will be yours forever
    This is a beautiful start
    To a lifelong love letter"

    Their shared love is expressed as "
    I will become yours and you will become mine"

    And

    " I get to be the other half of you"


    She admits her unpreparedress and that she will make mistakes but that they will learn together.

    This is a sweet song about a mother pledging her love and dedication to get precious child.
