In Memory of Whitney Houston
August 9, 1963 ~ February 11, 2012

If there’s one Whitney Houston song I consider my absolute favorite, this would be the one, the one that defines me now and forever.

I Have Nothing
from the soundtrack to the 1992 film, The Bodyguard

Share my life, take me for what I am
Cause I’ll never change all my colors for you
Take my love, I’ll never ask for too much
Just all that you are and everything that you do

I don’t really need to look very much further
I don’t want to have to go where you don’t follow
I won’t hold it back again, this passion inside
Can’t run from myself
There’s nowhere to hide

Well don’t make me close one more door
I don’t wanna hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Must I imagine you there
Don’t walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don’t have you

You see through, right to the heart of me
You break down my walls with the strength of your love
I never knew love like I’ve known it with you
Will a memory survive, one I can hold on to

I don’t really need to look very much further
I don’t want to have to go where you don’t follow
I won’t hold it back again, this passion inside
Can’t run from myself
There’s nowhere to hide
Your love I’ll remember, forever

Don’t make me close one more door …
