Little Things

A while back I heard half a song on the radio, and I really liked the sentiment. I held a couple of lines in my head till I could get to a computer and find the song, which turned out to be “Little Things” by One Direction.

I have posted the lyrics below. What grabs me about this song is it portrays someone who knows the woman he loves. He knows her quirks and her habits, and he loves those things because they are who she is. As they sing at the end of the song “It’s you, it’s you, they add up to, I’m in love with you, and all your little things.”

Do you have this attitude about your wife?

“Little Things” By One Direction

Your hand fits in mine
Like it’s made just for me
But bear this in mind
It was meant to be
And I’m joining up the dots
With the freckles on your cheeks
And it all makes sense to me

I know you’ve never loved
The crinkles by your eyes when you smile
You’ve never loved
Your stomach or your thighs
The dimples in your back at the bottom of your spine
But I’ll love them endlessly

I won’t let these little things slip out of my mouth
But if I do, it’s you,
Oh it’s you,
They add up to
I’m in love with you,
And all these little things

You can’t go to bed,
Without a cup of tea,
And maybe that’s the reason
That you talk, in your sleep
And all those conversations
Are the secrets that I keep
Though it makes no sense to me

I know you’ve never loved the sound of your voice on tape
You never want to know how much you weigh
You still have to squeeze into your jeans
But, You’re perfect to me

I won’t let these little things slip out of my mouth
But if it’s true,
It’s you,
It’s you,
They add up to
I’m in love with you,
And all these little things

You’ll never love yourself
Half as much as I love you
You’ll never treat yourself right, darlin’
But I want you to,
If I let you know, I’m here for you,
Maybe you’ll love yourself,
Like I love you
Oh

And I’ve just let these little things
Slip, out of my mouth,
‘Cause it’s you, oh it’s you,
It’s you,
They add up to
And I’m in love with you,
And all these little things,

(Chorus)
I won’t let these little things slip out of my mouth,
But if it’s true,
It’s you, it’s you,
They add up to,
I’m in love with you,
And all your little things
