I have to admit, I’m not a big Adele fan. I think her voice is so amazing it gives me chills, but I simply don’t relate to the subject of her original songs. Nobody’s really “done me wrong,” nor have I ever been that attracted to “bad boys.” So on a fundamental level, I just don’t “get” her.
But her cover of The Cure’s Lovesong slays me. Not only is it incredibly sexy, I find it to be incredibly spiritual as well. I dare you to listen to it as a love song to your Higher Power, whoever or whatever he, she, or it may be.
The intimacy that I experience with God is so fleeting, yet this song captures the essence of what it feels like to be cocooned up with God, wrapped in the care of His unconditional love for me. Now, if only I could discover the secret of making it last . . .
