Love Song

The following song sung by the legendary Elton John, is one of my favorite love songs.  Somebody put together this wonderful video of couples in love – it is really beautiful and timely as we approach Valentine’s Day.

Enjoy and God Bless


The words I have to say
May well be simple but they’re true,
Until you give your love,
There’s nothing more that we can do.

Love is the opening door
Love is what we came here for
No one could offer you more
Do you know what I mean?
Have your eyes really seen?

You say it’s very hard
To leave behind the life we knew,
But there’s no other way
And now it’s really up to you

Love is the key we must turn.
Truth us the flame we must burn.
Freedom the lesson we must learn.
Do you know what I mean?
Have your eyes really seen?

Drops Of Jupiter

I can’t tell you why I love these song lyrics – but I identify with them somehow.    I was singing this with a voice student of mine this last week – and I asked her, “What do you think these lyrics mean?”  Interesting question, right?

I have found that the best song lyrics have a universal meaning.  And even though the writer of these words was taking something from his real life – it usually is a personal story that inspires the best songs.   This song is actually about a dream.  The lead singer of Train lost his mother to cancer and had a weird dream about missing her.   Enjoy it – it’s one of Train’s best songs and after listening to the song and seeing the lyrics – there is another video of Pat explaining about the dream and why he wrote the song.  It’s really great!

Who’s your “Drops Of Jupiter” today?  Who do you miss?

God Bless


For You

Heard this wonderful song today on Pandora Radio and had to share it with all of you today.  There is something special that only music can express. And sometimes the emotion of love can ONLY be fully expressed through a song – a melody – and very special lyrics.  I have many songs that are special and always a part of me for that reason.  Music evokes a memory and an emotion that nothing else does.  For this reason it is and will continue to be a central focus for me – not only as a musician – but as a human being.  God the creator of music – knows what moves us emotionally – He created us unique and special – knowing the things that touch us and restore joy and happiness – His kiss of love to us.  And this is just one example.

Enjoy and God Bless

No words to say
No words to convey
This feeling inside I have for you

Deep in my heart
Safe from the guards
Of intellect and reason
Leaving me at a loss
For words to express my feelings

Deep in my heart
Deep in my heart
Look at me losing control
Thinking I had a hold
But with feelings this strong
I’m no longer the master
Of my emotions

Swept Away

My Favorite song of the 80’s.  I first heard it during an episode of ‘Growing Pains’ when the Seaver’s were in Hawaii.  I LOVE everything about it!  Thought I would share it with you today!  I have a live recording of this song under ‘my favorite music’ above – but this is the original recording.

 

Enjoy and God Bless

 

I never had anything happen so fast
I took one look and I shattered like glass
I guess I let it show ’cause your smile told me you knew
That you’re everything I ever wanted at once
There’s no holding this heart when it knows what it wants
And I never wanted anything more than to know you

I was swept away
No one in the world but you and I
Gotta find a way to make you feel the way that I do
I was swept away
Without a warning
Like night when the morning begins the day
I was swept away

And so it begins
This journey of love
The summer wind carries us to places all our own
The words of a look
The language of touch
The way that you want me means so much
And I never wanted anything more than to love you

Seeing my tomorrows in your eyes
I was swept away

I hope I wake up soon
I’m a victim of that crazy moon

The very first time you said my name
I knew it would never sound the same
Something about me is changed forever

Swept Away
