Song Spotlight: Jack Johnson - "Angel" & "Adrift"


Today the “Song Spotlight” is on two different songs. The first song is a really short song, but never the less, it is a beautiful song. Angel by Jack Johnson is one of those songs that every woman wishes her man would write for her.

I've got an angel
She doesn't wear any wings
She wears a heart that can melt my own
She wears a smile that can make me wanna sing
She gives me presents
With her presence alone
She gives me everything I could wish for
She gives me kisses on the lips just for coming home

She could make angels
I've seen it with my own eyes
You gotta be careful when you've got good love
Cause the angels will just keep on multiplying

But you're so busy changing the world
Just one smile can change all of mine
We share the same soul
Oh oh oh oh oh ohhh
We Share the same soul
Oh oh oh oh oh ohhh
We Share the same soul
Oh oh oh oh oh ohhh
Oh oh oh oh oh ohhh
Umm umm umm uhhhhhhmm

The second song is also by Jack Johnson, and is titled Adrift. Jack has a knack for singing these songs that make you just want to fall in love with someone all over again, and this is one of those songs.

Your voice is adrift
I can't expect it to sing to me
As if I was the only one

I'll follow you
The leaf that's following the sun
When will my weight be too much for you?
When will these ideas really be my own?
Cause this moment keeps on moving
We were never meant to hold on

This was a scene worth waking up for
When I woke up
You planted me in my own body
Don't know why
But somehow it just feels so wrong
When you're sad I will be lonely
But when you rise again I'll become the sun
I will shine down upon you
As if you were the only one

Your voice is your own, I can't protect it
You'll have to sing
A verse no one has ever known

Don't be afraid
Cause no one ever sings alone
Your way will never be too much for me
Your ideas have always been your own
And this moment keeps on moving
We were never meant to hold on

    I just love Jack Johnson. His songs are so beautiful written and are a joy to listen to. I have just recently heard his music and forgot that I wanted to buy his cd. Nice to know someone else has heard of him. Thanks for reminding me Katie I need to go out and buy his cd.
