“Nothing Can Come Between Us” by Sade
On this track, the singer asserts that nothing can possibly separate her from her partner because their love is extremely strong. The song takes the form of a conversation, where she tells her partner to hold on and have faith in their relationship’s ability to blossom into something more beautiful.
Sade constantly reminds him that the love they share is intense and tender at the same time, in the sense that it is strong enough to stand the test of time, and is soft enough to expose their weaknesses during tough times. She further advises him to be patient and hopeful even when things go wrong and it feels like he is alone.
The singer notes that the most important things that will keep them together forever is faith and trust. They need faith because it will keep them believing in their love for each other and a better future even when things appear gloomy along the way.
They also need trust in order to feel loved and cherished, instead of feeling suspicious of each other the whole time. The singer basically stresses that nothing can pull them apart as an affirmation of their love and trust for each other, as well as an encouragement for her partner to stay close and hold on even when he feels like giving up on them.
