Song of the Day #2,784: ‘Refuge (When It’s Cold Outside)’ – John Legend

john_legendHere’s a nice song from John Legend’s 2004 album, Get Lifted. I can’t say much more about it than that.

I like Legend well enough through his many talk show and award show appearances, but I’ve never taken the time to listen to any of his music.

[Verse 1]
I pray for better days to come
I pray that I would see the sun
Cause life is so burdensome
When everyday is a rainy one
But suddenly there’s no more clouds
And I believe without a doubt
That heaven sent an angel down
Then she turned my life around

[Bridge 1]
You know and I know
Friends come and friends go
Storms rise and winds blow
But one thing I know for sure

When it’s cold outside
There’s no need to worry cause
I’m so warm inside
You give me peace
When the storm’s outside
Cause we’re in love I know
It’ll be alright
Alright, it’s alright

[Verse 2]
Now peace is so hard to find
We’re terrorized and victimized
But that’s when I close my eyes
And think of you to ease my mind
You take me to another place
There’s no more war (no more war)
Just love and grace
Baby you restore my faith
I know the struggle’s not in vain

[Bridge 2]
You know and I know
Through all the battles
Baghdad to Israel
There’s one thing I know for sure


Alright it’s alright (3x)


Oh it’s gonna be alright

Cause you give me peace
In the middle of the storm
When it’s cold you’re keeping me warm
It’s alright
It’s alright
I’m never gonna leave
You give me what I need
It’s alright, alright

[Prelude to “It Don’t Have To Change”]
“First unheard message”
Hey Johnny it’s your dad (and your mom!)
Heya bud what we called for is to let you know we’re lookin’ forward to seein’ you home over the holidays, everybody’s been askin’ about you. Gimme a call later ok? Bye bye

    He’s a talented guy, but my exposure to him is similar to yours, though you obviously bought at least one of his albums.

    He appears on so many award shows that even Dad knows his name 🙂
