Recenlty a certain youtuber named Ingrid made a inspiring and touching “coming out” video just in time to celebrate along with the U.S. marriage equality laws approval!
This non-discriminatory mindset that more and more people are adopting lately makes most of us feel proud of humanity again, however this post is about another Ingrid…
Born December 8 of 1979 in beautiful New York, Ingrid Ellen Michaelson is an indie-pop singer and songwriter who has released 6 albums since 2005 until today and plays 3 different instruments.
Random facts: she has a degree in Theather, considers herself a feminist and was once a member of an a capella group.
Getting down to it… You and I is a beautiful song with a simple rhythm, straight forward lyrics and enchanting vocals and guitar chords.
This song states many goals I would like to achieve some day, like marrying the cutest, funniest guy I’ve ever met, the one I can see myself having a family with in the future without worrying about money but working together to save enough and buy a dreamy house for us, another one for our parents who we love and lots of presents for other people we’ve met and we’ll meet!
Also, I now a girl who’s terribly confused and this boy who has been hurt before but I trust they could make an excelent pair someday, with his looks, her books and the way they could spoon is just a matter of time until they realize they were meant to say “you and I” from the beginning… at least I hope in this way today’s song applies a bit to my life.
One message is clear about this melody: when you have true love nothing else matters.
…And here the honest lyrics (spanish/english):
Don’t you worry there my honey
We might not have any money
But we’ve got our love to pay the bills
Maybe I think you’re cute and funny
Maybe I wanna do what bunnies do with you if you know what I mean
Oh lets get rich and buy our parents homes in the south of France
Lets get rich and give everybody nice sweaters and teach them how to dance
Lets get rich and build a house on a mountain making everybody look like ants
From way up there, you and I, you and I
Well you might be a bit confused
And you might be a little bit bruised
But baby how we spoon like no one else
So I will help you read those books
If you will soothe my worried looks
And we will put the lonesome on the shelf
