Loving You- Backstreet Boys

The purpose of these entries is to continue  the work of Decoding Backstreet   It was unique part of the Backstreet Boys  Blogosphere  because it was dedicated  to anyalzing the songs along with the occasional GIFs.  This satisfied my desire to actually understand a song before I listened  Unfournately the writer seems to have abandoned it permnately  There is no mention of anything beyond some of the unreleased songs and  In A World Like . So I am continuing that in my own style with songs that the original one has not covered starting with the unrealeased  Song  Loving You
I like the simple isntrumentation on this song  an organ with a guitar introduction .  Given the relgious references and the overall tone I was not  surprised to hear Brian sing lead on this. I was surprised that AJ joins in this one too.  I usually think of AJ  more as lead on the sensual songs but it works here. It kind of reveals the softer person he has become.   Brian did not write this although it would not be surprising  if he did It has the same feel as the Perfect Fan   AZ Lyrics attributes it to early collaborator Joylon Skinners  which kind of surprised sincehe  was   behind the questionable Boys Will Be Boys   This an example of the kind of song I am drawn to the pure sentimality  instead of the more sensual  (You'll hear me divide Backstreet Boys song in these catergories often)
Brian(Intro)
I love how loving you makes me feel
And I love how loving you feels so real
Through the good through the bad
When I'm happy or sad
I'd rather be loving you than anything else in the world
Ohoooh Loving you than anything else
Brian
All my life I've dreamed of a princess all dressed in white
Standing there to be my bride and then there's you
A sending from Heaven right before my eyes
Letting me know that there is a God somewhere I know
Many people think they find love in the world
But this kind of love isn't found it finds you it takes you
Something needs to be added to last part of the line. Does it mean takes you by surprise take you somewhere ? I am thinking the first  especially in light of the first part of that lines the class of persons devoted to the affairs, interests, or pursuits of this lifeI also have grammar gripe.  Sending doesn't exist as a noun. I would have  written sent from heaven  In fact someone  that it was the verb ascending and I did too.  However, I guess a sending fit better with the melody  And who said songs had to be grammatically correct.?  The world references would be familiar to someoene familiar with Christian language  as the class of persons devoted to the affairs, interests, or pursuits of this life  as opposed godly purst :  But since the writer probably wouldn't know this, I don't think that what he meant.  It more like "out there" somewhere. Also this love is waking him up to the possiblity of  God be he is not yet there given the tenative somewhere in all.
Chrous  with all
I love how loving you makes me feel oh yeah
And I love how loving you feels so real so real baby
Through the good through the bad
When I'm happy or sad
I'd rather be loving you than anything else in the world
Ohoooh I'd rather be loving you than anything else in the world (in the world)
AJ
All my life I've wondered if I'd hear all the bells and whistles
If the one should come my way
Then there is you like the wind makes the earth shake
Making me a believer there must be a God somewhere I know
Many people think they found love in the world
But this kind of love isn't found it finds you it takes you
  Don't have much to say about this except things happen when  you least expect it  despite our plans or despite our lack of them.It sounds kind of like the song Chances doesn't  be Instead of comparing of her to an angel  form heaven this time  he is comparing her to powerful  wind  that refreshes and sweeps up everything it is path. The wind you feel and hear but cannot see      . It seems this woman has had a profound effect on his life Now the guy is a little but more sure about God  because he says it has made him a believer  maybe both a believer in God and in love  The last two lines are same as in the first verse but with the verb find in the past.

Bridge  Brian/AJ
This kind of love
Doesn't come from just a touch

Nor does it comes
From anything you can pay for
It's so pure
If we just let love be love

I wouldn't trade for all in the world

This a good statement of my view of love. It is not just psyhical or nor based on getting material things. It does include those  things but it is more than just an emoion This is probably the most complete statment about love I have seen in popular music. The line if we just let love be love seems vague but probably if they let thing happen naturally without rushing it


Chrous repeats 2x to the end with all

I always they needed a song dedicated to their wives  and this is it.. It is the perfect wedding song. Some people may pick up on the religious references.
Trivia:  Song was also done by the group 21:03  with  a slightly different insturmentation But the Backstreet Boys sang it first
