John Legend can’t promise forever, but he can promise a whole lot of love in the moment.
The “All of Me” singer released a new single called “Love Me Now” that’s all about living in the present. Instead of banking on eternity, he admits that even the most idyllic romances could be over in a minute, so it’s best to enjoy them while they’re here.
“Even when we try so hard / For that perfect kind of love / It could all fall apart,” he admits. “So love me now.”
Accompanying the new song is a lyric video starring couples and families professing their love to each other, just in case the song itself wasn’t enough to get you misty-eyed.
“Love Me Now” is Legend’s first new single since his Oscar-winning Common collaboration, “Glory.” It’s also the first song off his upcoming album Darkness & Light, which Legend says will feature contributions from Miguel and Chance the Rapper.
