Annie's Song Lyrics

You fill up my senses, like a night in the forest.
Like a mountain in springtime, like a walk in the rain.
Like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean.
You fill up my senses, come fill me again.

Come let me love you, let me give my life for you.
Let me drown in your laughter, let me die in your arms.
Let me lay down beside you, let me always be with you.
Come let me love you, come love me again.

You fill up my senses, like a night in the forest.
Like a mountain in spring time, like a walk in the rain.
Like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean.
You fill up my senses, come fill me again.

To quote John Denver himself, ""Annie's Song" is my most popular song around the world, if not the most famous. It was written after we had been through a particularly difficult time and had come together again, in many ways closer then ever before. We really felt together and much closer from the experiences we'd been through. One day I was skiing, and I'd just finished a run that was totally exhilarating. I skied right down to the lift, got on the chair, and was off and up the mountains again, my thighs burning and still in the process of catching my breath. I looked out at the mountains I love, and the Colorado sky was a blue color you can only see from this altitude-my favorite color, I might add. The deep green of the trees against the white of the snow, the colorful outfits the people were wearing, the sounds if life as it goes over each tower, and birds singing, and laughter, and the smell of the clean, fresh air out there in the wilderness-all those things were going through my mind and it was all beautiful. It filled me completely.

“I began thinking about other things that are like that for me, and my first thought was of the woman I had fallen in love with again, and how she filled me so completely. Then I stared thinking of other things-things in nature. And in the ten minutes it takes to go from the bottom of Bell Mountain lift to the top, I had written “Annie’s Song.” I had the melody in my head, and I knew the chords on the guitar. I skied down to the bottom, of the hill, raced home, picked up my guitar, and played it. Noel Stookey of Peter, Paul & Mary said sometimes he didn’t feel so much like the writer, but rather the instrument of that which wants to be written. That’s what this felt like to me. “Annie’s Song” is a song for all lovers and, in its deepest sense, a prayer to the love in us all.”

This song, like many others of Denver's, is a masterpiece. My parents were actually married to this song, over 25 years ago, and I've pretty much grown up on Denver's music. It's a shame his life was cut short. He's definitely one of my favorite artists of all time.

I adore this song. It is one of the greatest love songs ever written. I know this song was written about his wife, but I can't help but think of all types of love (lovers, friends, children, parents etc) when I hear this song. I noticed someone commented that he sang this song to his child and I can understand why. The lyrics, though noticeably about a lover, continue to remind me of my grandma and a grandparent's love for their grandchild.

"Come let me love you, let me give my life to you. Let me drown in your laughter, let me die in your arms."

This part, especially the part about "drowning in your laughter," makes me think of a grandparent speaking to their grandchild.

I had never heard of John Denver before until someone put this this song on at the end of a rather mellow party. He told me: Listen to this; it's simply a man and his guitar.. I remember the simple lyrics and the beautiful tune cutting through all the noise and expressing this mans love and devotion in a clearer way than I had ever heard before. I just began to cry outright, there was no stopping it; this was, and still is, one of the most clear and tender lovesongs I have ever heard..

I walked down the aisle at my wedding to this song.

The lyrics above are wrong. He says let me give my life TO you, not FOR you. There is a huge difference. He isn't talking about laying down and dying for her (although he probably would have.) The ultimate gift he can give to her is himself, and she can do with him what she wants. He believes he is a better person with her. This guy was a nature lover. The only way he could express his love for his wife Annie was to liken it to the beautiful things in nature. Possibly one of the most romantic songs ever written. This is the lullaby I sing to my baby son. This and Scarborough Fair by Simon and Garfunkel.
