You’ll know that you really love someone when every time they’re around, they make you feel happy. Sometimes, being with them is the best feeling in the world. Whenever you’re with someone you love, they take your breath away each time they speak or touch you. This is what Vince Gill is talking about in his song “Whenever You Come Around.”
The Content of “Whenever You Come Around”
Gill’s single speaks of a love that makes you feel like the whole world is spinning yet in a good way. The narrator talks of the way he feels when his lover is with him. The love he feels for her and he receives from her are the best thing that happened in his life.
And when you smile that smile
The whole world turns upside down
Whenever you come around
Because the narrator considers his lover as his whole life, he knows that when she disappears from his life, everything would end.
I get weak in the knees; and I lose my breath
Oh I try to speak but the words won’t come
I’m so scared to death
And when you smile the world turns upside down
