You are Me - By Alaine

Alaine Laughton recently visited Kenya and although I did not get to attend her concert I really love her songs ...

Alaine Laughton


"You are Me" especially pulls at all my heartstrings ... I am one of those people who believe that there is an inherent good human being in each one of us ... and just treating other people well brings out the best of them.  

I have often of course paid the price for this belief often ...people do like to take advantage ...and misuse those who treat them well. It is common to find people choosing the tangible ...such as electronics, money and other stuff ...over the intangible like friendships. Sometimes others will lie to you, con you - maybe and not feel a thing.


But all in all I still join Alaine in singing her song - enjoy the lyrics ...just note they are transcribed - so feel free to correct any errors you find




ALAINE - You Are Me


OhYeah × 2

Time is wasted we were meant to love each other - yeah
Separation is the root of all our problems  - woohhh
If I hurt you then I hurt myself hate you then I hate myself
If I kill you - I kill me

But if I love you like I love me
And if I treat you like I treat me
Oh what a world (what a world × 2)
Oh what a world (what a world × 2)
When I see you are me
Oh yea
You are me
(you are me)
You are me

We are dying bodies lying in the street
From the silence unmarked graves are crying out for peace ohhh
If I turn my back and walk away say… that’s not me so I’m okay – I fail
Cos it goes on and on again

But if I love you like I love me
And if I treat you like I treat me
Oh what a world (what a world × 2)
this would be
Oh what a world (what a world ×2)
When I see …

Bridge
You are me and I am you one blood, one spirit,
One world we are living and we could be the change we need

If I love you like I love me
And if I treat you like I treat me
Ohhh what a world…what a world …what a world this would be
Ohhh what a world …when I see

If I love you (like I love me) the way I love me

And if I treat you like I treat me
Oh what a world
what a world …what a world …what a world
This would be
Oh what a world
what a world…what a – world
then I see … you are me

you …you ….you are
you …you …you are …you are me ….yeah yeah

Loving life and living it. “Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.” (Mary Anne Radmacher)
Give yourself completely in everything for that is love and only when we love can we find God.
