I am a sucker for love. I believe with love you can accomplish anything.

Love is the only thing that you can never have too much of. Think of all the great things that come from Love…

Peace,Children,Marriage,Friendship,Religion,Faith,Truth

Let love rule your life and you will find it is the best thing to live for!

Today Song is Let Love Rule by Lenny Kravitz

 

Lyrics

Let Love Rule

Love is gentle as a rose
And love can conquer any war
It’s time to take a stand
Brothers and sisters join hands

We got to let love rule
Let love rule

We got to let love rule
Let love rule

Love transcends all space and time
And love can make a little child smile
Can’t you see this won’t go wrong
But we got to be strong
We can’t do it alone

We got to let love rule
Let love rule

We got to let love rule
Let love rule

 

 

Today is Halloween and the spirits are out in full swing.

What better song to play today than Thriller by Michael Jackson, the video is still great to watch on Halloween.

 

Stay Safe tonight.

 

Me and My Indians will be trick or treating.

What song are you listening to this Halloween?

We are all on a path to a glorious destination. As individuals, we have a responsibility to help our brothers and sisters of the world. We must delve inside ourselves to discover our purpose.
Life is not about acquiring riches or surpassing our neighbors. It is about looking at each other and finding something that we have in common. It’s about helping someone up when they fall, it’s about giving a thumb’s up when no one else is willing to build confidence. It’s about believing without seeing. It’s about understanding and merging together as one. It’s about accepting without judgment.
It’s about believing in a higher power regardless of what you call that higher power.

When you start worrying about the next life, you begin living this life differently.
Life is not a competition; every man is replaceable but only certain ones leave marks.
Take time today to leave a mark on someone’s heart and you may help them rise higher than they ever knew they could. In return, they may do the same for another.

Being born is like winning the lottery, what we do with our winnings makes a difference.

Happy Friday!

There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
and its time to lend a hand to life
There greatest gift of all

We cant go on pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
We are all a part of Gods great big family
And the truth, you know,
Love is all we need

Chorus:
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
Theres a choice we’re making
We’re saving out own lives
its true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

Send them your heart so they’ll know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stones to brend
So we all must lend a helping hand

Chorus:
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
Theres a choice we’re making
We’re saving out own lives
its true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

When you’re down and out, there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe theres no way we can fall
Let us realize that a change can only come
When we stand together as one

Chorus:
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
Theres a choice we’re making
We’re saving out own lives
its true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

For some, confidence is hard to achieve. You let other people’s perceptions of you interfere with who you really are. Today is the day to look within and embrace your inner self. You may be different from others and that is okay. Take that difference and fly with it. You don’t have to be like anyone else to fit in. If someone makes you feel out of place because you are different, chances are they are intimidated by the confidence they see but you don’t. Find your light turn it on and never apologize for being the person you were born to be, by doing this you will find confidence. Don’t Back Down!

You have a dream but you are afraid that others won’t accept or believe in it. The only person that needs to believe in your dream is yourself. When one door closes, search for another one that opens. Don’t Back Down!

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Tom Petty/I WON’T BACK DOWN LYRICS

Well I wont back down, no I wont back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I wont back down

Gonna stand my ground, wont be turned around
And Ill keep this world from draggin me down
Gonna stand my ground and I wont back down

Hey baby, there aint no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I wont back down.

Well I know whats right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin me around
But Ill stand my ground and I wont back down

Hey baby there aint no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I wont back down
No, I wont back down

 

 

We are all of different race, religion, body shape, gender and all possess different personalities. But the one thing we all have in common is LOVE. Love is universal and it has nothing to do with color, social class or body size.  If we all embraced love a little more the world would be a much better place.

This week I chose Bob Marley’s One Love for the Friday song.

Tell someone today that you love them and you just might make their day.

 

Happy Friday!

 

 

One Love, One Heart
Let’s get together and feel all right
Hear the children crying (One Love)
Hear the children crying (One Heart)
Sayin’ give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Sayin’ let’s get together and feel all right
Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (One Love)
There is one question I’d really like to ask (One Heart)
Is there a place for the hopeless sinner
Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own?
Believe me
One Love, One Heart
Let’s get together and feel all right
As it was in the beginning (One Love)
So shall it be in the end (One Heart)
Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
One more thing
Let’s get together to fight this Holy Armageddon (One Love)
So when the Man comes there will be no no doom (One Song)
Have pity on those whose chances grove thinner
There ain’t no hiding place from the Father of Creation
Sayin’ One Love, One Heart
Let’s get together and feel all right
I’m pleading to mankind (One Love)
Oh Lord (One Heart)
Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Let’s get together and feel all right

 

 

Last Friday was sunny, warm and inviting. This Friday is gloomy and cool. Immediately I could feel the blues setting in. Last week I felt like I could conquer the world but today I felt like I wanted to hide from the world. I searched for depressing songs to suit my mood. I was prepared to sulk when I came across a song that lifted my mood. This Little Light of Mine is exactly what I needed. Bruce Springsteen’s version is upbeat and knocked the blues out of me. When the world outside is gloomy and dark, find your light and let it shine.

Happy Friday!

What are you listening to this week

Neil Young is a well-known legend and I fell in love with his song Unknown Legend the very first time I heard it. His voice is not like any other and can soothe a crying baby to sleep.  Listening to his music takes me to that far-away place called yesterday; it is the only way to get back.

What are you listening to today?

The purpose of Friday’s Song is to encourage others to comment on the song choice and put up a Friday Song of their own on their blog.

Happy Friday!

Unknown Legend lyrics

She used to work in a diner
Never saw a woman look finer
I used to order just to watch
her float across the floor
She grew up in a small town
Never put her roots down
Daddy always kept movin’,
so she did too.

Somewhere on a desert highway
She rides a Harley-Davidson
Her long blonde hair
flyin’ in the wind
She’s been runnin’ half her life
The chrome and steel she rides
Collidin’ with
the very air she breathes
The air she breathes.

You know it ain’t easy
You got to hold on
She was an unknown legend
in her time
Now she’s dressin’ two kids
Lookin’ for a magic kiss
She gets the far-away look
in her eyes.

Somewhere on a desert highway
She rides a Harley-Davidson
Her long blonde hair
flyin’ in the wind
She’s been runnin’ half her life
The chrome and steel she rides
Collidin’ with the very
air she breathes
The air she breathes.

The Counting Crows recently released their new album. I love the Counting Crows and I’m sure the music on this album will be great. This week I decided to post my favorite Counting Crows Song-Colorblind. I could watch the movie Cruel Intentions repeatedly;the chemistry between Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Philipe was steaming. It saddened me when they seperated, I really liked them together.

Happy Friday? What songs are you listening to?

Colorblind Lyrics

I am colorblind
Coffee black and egg white
Pull me out from inside
I am ready, I am ready, I am ready, I am…
taffy stuck and tongue tied
Stutter shook and uptight
Pull me out from inside
I am ready, I am ready, I am ready
I am fine
I am covered in skin
No one gets to come in
Pull me out from inside
I am folded and unfolded and unfolding
I am colorblind
Coffee black and egg white
Pull me out from inside
I am ready, I am ready, I am ready,
I am fine
I am fine

LAST YEAR MY FATHER CELEBRATED HIS SEVENTIETH B-DAY. WE HAD A BIG PARTY FOR HIM. MY SIBLINGS AND I PUT TOGETHER A HUGE SCRAPBOOK AND COLLABORATED ON SEVENTY THINGS WE LOVE ABOUT OUR FATHER.

I WROTE A SONG FOR HIM THAT I INTEND TO ONE DAY HAVE COMPOSED. TODAY I WILL POST THE SONG.

HEY, IF YOU ARE A COMPOSER AND WANT TO SET THIS TO MUSIC-LET’S TALK. HAHAHAH

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AN EXTRAORDINARY MAN 

 

Don’t be proud of me

Be proud of what you see

What you see inside yourself

It’s because of who you are

I am who I am

 

I follow your example

You’re an extraordinary man

 

You have always put us first

You were okay with being last

I cherish every moment

Every lesson you have passed

 

Passed on down-as a teacher would do

Blessed we were to be given to you

 

It’s because of who you are that I am who I am

I follow your example, you’re an extraordinary man

 

Listen don’t talk, give don’t take

Appreciate your hard work

And the money you make

 

Life is short-we don’t have much time

Make a difference-Find a way

Let your light shine

 

Treat others with respect

Don’t be taken for a fool

Following another’s path

Won’t make you cool

 

Discover who you are

Then soar high above

 

There is nothing more important than a father’s love

I follow your example you’re an extraordinary man

 

 

 This week I am in the mood for some Jack Johnson. I love the vibe his music gives. It takes me to a sunny beach far away.  

My interpretation of this song is… A person falls in love for the first time and finds it hard when the other person does not seem as interested. 

What are your thoughts? 

What are you listening to this Friday? 

Happy Friday! 

Sitting, Waiting, Wishing,Lyrics

Now I was sitting waiting wishing
That you believed in superstitions
Then maybe you’d see the signs
But Lord knows that this world is cruel
And I ain’t the Lord, no I’m just a fool
And in loving somebody don’t make them love youMust I always be waiting waiting on you?
Must I always be playing playing the fool?I sing ya songs I dance a dance
I gave ya friends all a chance
Putting up with them wasn’t worth never having you
And maybe you been through this before
But it’s my first time
So please ignore
The next few lines cause they’re directed at youI can’t always be waiting waiting on you
I can’t always be playing playing your fool
I keep playing your cards
But it’s not my scene
Wont this plot not twist?
I’ve had enough mystery,
Keep building it up, then shooting me down
Well im already down
Just wait a minute
Just sit and wait it
Just wait a minute
Just sit and wait itWell if I was in your position
Id put down all my ammunition
I’d wondered why’d it taken me so long
But Lord knows that I’m not you
And If I was I wouldn’t be so cruel
Cause waiting on love ain’t so easy to doMust I always be waiting waiting on you?
Must I always be playing playing the fool?
No I can’t always be waiting waiting on you
I can’t always be playing playing your fool, foool
