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 ?
