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?
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."
Thinking of a master plan cause ainÂ´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
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??
