“Cause my darling, you and I could take over the world
And one step at a time, just you and I.
Cause you’re the only one, who brings light just like the sun
One step at a time, just you and I”
– Tom Walker
You know when you hear that one song that just captures the essence of your relationship…you know…that one song that when you hear it…it gives you all the feels. That’s what Tom Walker’s “Just You and I” does for me. From the beginning Josh, my fiancé, would randomly send me songs. Songs that he came across that reminded him of us. Songs like, “Evergreen” by Yebba or “Best Part” by Daniel Caesar or “Colour” by MNEK. But this song by Tom Walker touched me differently…for many reasons. The first time I played it…I couldn’t help but burst into tears. It touched me because it not only spoke to where we were but it also spoke to where we’re going…together.
You see, I not only knew what I wanted in a man…but I also knew the type of relationship I wanted. I wanted a partnership…a team…an us against the world type of love. I wanted someone I could do life with. A leader that, after God, would put us and our interests first. God gave me this gift…and this is just the beginning. The song reminds me that with each step I take in this life, he’ll be by my side…and we’ll take over the world…together.
