I'll start...


I bought "Commodores" the album in 1977. I listened to it for hours. My favorite song was and still is Zoom. The song mirrored my life at the time, as I was a young lady seeking direction and peace in my life. I found comfort in listening to this tune. Twenty-six years later and I still enjoy the lyrics in this song.


Zoom Lyrics:: By Lionel Richie

I may be just a foolish dreamer, but I don't care
'Cause I know my happiness is waiting out there somewhere
I'm searching for that silver lining, horizons that I've never seen
Oh I'd like to take just a moment and dream my dream
Dream my dream

Zoom
I'd like to fly far away from here, where my mind is fresh and clear
And I'd find the love that I long to see where everybody can be what they wanna be
I'd like the greet the sun each morning, and walk amongst the stars at night
I'd like to know the taste of honey in my life
Well I've shared so many pains, and I've played so many games
But everyone finds the right way, Somehow, Somewhere, Someday

Zoom
I wish the world were truly happy, living as one
I wish the word they call freedom someday would come, someday would come

Zoom
I'd like to fly away

Zoom
You and me, baby Walking free
Don't you wanna go?


...Music is my carnal passion. I love music...
Cool topic!

One of the current dilemmas in my life can be summed up in the contrast between lyrics from two songs with the same title: "Higher Love" by 80s British pop star Steve Winwood, and "Higher Love" by 90s British Neo/Alternative-Soul band Raw Stylus:

Steve W: "I could light the night up with my soul on fire. I could make the sun shine from pure desire. Let me feel that love come over me. Let me feel how strong it could be."

Raw Stylus: "I don't need a higher Love, 'cause what we got is gettin' higher. I don't need a higher love, 'cause what we got is good enough."
I love these lyrics!

Thinking of a master plan
cause ain´t nothing but sweat inside my hand
so I dig into my pocket ,all my money is spent
so I dig deeper but still coming up with lint
so I start my mission, leave my residence
thinking how could I get some dead presidents . . .


There is no passion to be found playing small, in settling for a life
that is less than the one you are capable of living. - Mandela

dontchange...

Lately you've been questioning if I still see you the same way
Cause through these trying years we gonna both physically change
Now don't you know you'll always be the most beautiful women I know
So let me reassure you darling that my feelings are truly unconditional, see

(Chorus)
I'll love you when your hair turns grey girl
I still want you if you gained a little weight, yeah
The way I feel for you will always be the same
Just as long as your love don't change (no)
I was meant for you and you we're meant for me, yeah
And I make sure that I'll be everything you need, Yeah
Girl the way we are is how it's gonna be
Just as long as your love don't change

Cause I'm not impressed more or less by them girls on the TV or magazines
Cause honestly I believe that your beauty is way more then skin deep
It's everything about you makes me feel I have the greatest gift in the world
And even when you get on my last nerve
I couldn't see myself being with another girl

another favorite (and i couldn't pick a favorite part--it's the whole song that gets me)

Song:"The Truth"
Artist:India.Arie
C.D.:"Voyage To India"


Spoken : Let me tell you why I love him

Chorus:
Cause he is the truth
Said he is so real
And I love the way that he makes me feel
And if I am a reflection of him then I must be fly because
His light it shines so bright I wouldn't lie


Verse 1:
I remember the very first day that I saw him
I found myself immediately intrigued by him
It's almost like I knew this man from another life
Like back then maybe I was his husband maybe he was my wife
And even,things I don't like about him are fine with me
Cause it's not hard for me to understand him cause he's so much like me
And it's truly my pleasure to share his company
And I know that it's God's gift to breathe
The air he breathes

Chorus:
Cause he is the truth
Said he is so real
And I love the way that he makes me feel
And if I am a reflection if him then I must be fly because
His light it shines so bright I wouldn't lie (no)


Verse 2:
How can the same man that makes me so mad
Do you know what he did-(Spoken)
Turn right around and kiss me so soft
Girl do you know what he did-(Spoken)
If he ever left me I wouldn't even be sad no
Cause there's a blessin' in every lesson
And I'm glad that I knew him at all

Chrous:
Cause he is the truth
Said he is so real
And I love the way that he makes me feel
And if I am a reflection of him then I must be fly because
His light it shines so bright


Bridge, Break-down, & Ending :
I love the way he speaks
I love the way he thinks
I love the way that he treats his mama
I love that gap in between his teeth
I love him in every way that a woman can love a man
From personal to universal but most of all
It's unconditional


You know what I'm talking about-(Spoken)
That's the way I feel
And I always will-(Spoken)

There ain't no substitute for the truth
Either it is or isn't
(Cause he is the truth)
You see the truth it needs no proof
Either it is or it isn't
(Cause he is the truth)
Now you know the truth by the way it feels
And if I am a reflection of him then I must be fly
Because he is, yes he is
I wonder does he know -Echoes

interesting that the 2 artists i chose lyrics from are dating each other...i wonder what their pillow talk is like??

Today?

Here's Where I Stand

Here in the dark
I stand before you
Knowing this is my chance to show you my heart
This is the start
This is the start

I have so much to say and I'm hopin'
That your arms are open
Don't turn away, I want you near me
But you have to hear me

Here's where I stand
Here's who I am
Love me, but don't tell me who I have to be
Here's who I am, I'm what you see

You said I had to change and I was tryin'
But my heart was lyin'
I'm not that child any longer
I am stronger

Here's where I stand
Here's who I am
Help me to move on but please don't tell me how
I'm on my way, I'm movin' now

In this life we've come so far
But we're only who we are
With the courage of love
To show us the way
We've got the power to stand up and say

Here's where I stand
Here's where I am
Stand up and be counted, I'm counting on you
If you're with me
We'll make it through

Here's where I stand
Here's who I am
Love me, love me, love me and we'll make it through
Here's where I stand
Baby, baby, baby I'm counting on you

Here's where I stand
Love me, love me, love me and we'll make it through
I'm counting
I'm counting
I'm counting, I'm counting on you
