Song #15 Alicia Keys – Like You’ll Never See Me Again

Why I Picked It: I heard it earlier today and it’s one of my favorite songs off of Alicia Keys’ album As I Am.

Why I Like It: Aside from it being a great display of Miss Keys vocal talents, there’s something about asking someone to love you as if there is no time left.

If I had no more time, no more time left to be here, would you cherish everything we have?

The passion evoked in carpe diem/carpe noctum.  Ironically the song isn’t powerful in the ways of other songs of Alicia Keys – A Woman’s Worth or If I Ain’t Got You.  It’s a song of quiet intensity and vulnerability reflected in the chorus, in the finger snaps, in the light repetitive piano.

Every time you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
Every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you’ll never see me again
