This might surprise you about me

One of my all-time favorite songs is “I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues” by Elton John.

Bernie Taupin, Elton’s lyricist, recently said, “I would never write the lyric ‘I simply love you more than I love life itself’ today. That’s not real.”

 

He says that’s not possible.  That bummed me out to hear that.

It made me think of Psalm 63:3 that says, “Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.”

What do you think?  It is really possible to love someone or something (even God) TRULY more than you love your own life?

  1. I wonder if Bernie has children? “I simply love you more than I love life itself” would be an understatement in that regard.
