Lyric Love

23 Oct

This weeks Lyric Love belongs to Stevie Wonder. Great music has one thing in common, it crosses all boundaries. Stevie Wonder is one of the most talented musicians that has ever lived and has blessed us for years with song after song that can’t be compared to his last. As a serious Stevie Wonder  fan I thought I had heard every one of his songs until my late aunt Myra played the song “Visions” while sitting in her living room. I was immediately attracted to the songs harp and the story he told about an untouchable place, this song is quintessential Stevie Wonder. Today makes a year since my aunt died and it never fails that I feel her spirit whenever this song is played. Shortly after she died I received a hand written letter from her and the only thing making the words on that piece of paper palatable was this song. Read on…

“Visions”

People hand in hand
Have I lived to see the milk and honey land ?
Where hate’s a dream and love forever stands
Or is this a vision in my mind ?

The law was never passed
But somehow all men feel they’re truly free at last
Have we really gone this far through space and time
Or is this a vision in my mind ?

I’m not one who makes believe
I know that leaves are green
They only change to brown when autumn comes around
I know just what I say
Today’s not yesterday
And all things have an ending

But what I’d like to know
Is could a place like this exist so beautiful
Or do we have to find our wings and fly away
To the vision in our mind ?

I’m not one who makes believes
I know that leaves are green
They only change to brown when autumn comes around

I know just what I say
Today’s not yesterday
And all things have an ending

But what I’d like to know
Is could a place like this exist so beautiful
Or do we have to take our wings and fly away
To the vision in our minds ?

Lyric Love

2 Jul

There is never a time that the lady Jill Scott does not have lyrics to express any emotion that I am feeling. Philadelphia born singer Jill Scott has words for my love, lust and even my anger. I have loved Jill Scotts music since her very first album but “The Real Thing Words and Sounds Volume. 3” did a beautiful job of expressing Jill’s feeling of hurt and heartache after ending a longterm relationship. Purely coincidence that I was also ending a serious relationship at the time of the albums release date, I felt as though she had written these lyrics for me. “My Love” is perfectly written. Enjoy!

“My Love”

By: Jill Scott

[Intro:]
Yo, I’m tripping right,
I heard you got married.
You got married?
No I mean, make any
It don’t really make any sense
I mean, it’s not like I, I didn’t think you were seeing other people or whatever,
I mean I was seeing other people but
You know what this is,
You know what it was, you tsch
I can’t say I really understand though

You chose her cause she’s sweet as pie
Take what you give, even your lies
But baby, are happy without me?
She scrubs your back, washes your clothes
Gives you everything that ask for
But don’t you ever want more?
’cause my love

[Chorus:]
My love is deeper
Tighter
Sweeter
Higher
Flyer
Didn’t you know this,
Or didn’t you notice?
(My love, my love)
My love is deeper
Tighter
Sweeter
Higher
Flyer
Didn’t you know this,
Or didn’t you notice?

Mmmm, what we had don’t need no words
Deeper than anything you ever heard
I ain’t reaching baby,
I know I should be your lady
You say you’re happy
You say you’re great
But you know and I know you really ain’t
You need to come be with me
That’s the way it’s supposed to be

[Chorus]

Cause oh,
All I ever do is think about you baby
I hold you in my arms inside my dreams
And I know what I know and what I know is
That no matter where you go
You will always think of me

[Chorus]
