The Soundtrack of My Life

the music that keeps me going…

I remember not too long ago…

on September 8, 2009

I was just a lonely person with a lonely heart
And I was hopin’ there could one day be
Be a chance for me to…Get the love that I’d been missin’
Sometimes love takes a long time
But, wait for love and you’re gonna get the
Chance to love – wait for love, wait for love…

shout out to my homie Cryssy for posting this song on facebook that made me make a mental note to one day post about songs that make me cry –I promise even though I post a lot of sad songs on here, there are only a handful that just make me a bucket of tears. like THIS SONG? I get emotional no matter when/where/why I listen to it.  I could explain why it makes me feel the way I feel, but I don’t really KNOW what that feeling is but I do know that the reason is just too personal  to share to be quite honest.

not sad tears, but the song just does it for me. RIP Lutha. this is my favoritest song by him ever.

Knowing love the way I do
I can say for certain that it’s true
There’s a chance for me and you
I surely feel like the time is near
The picture in my mind is very clear
I think love has brought us here

I remember not too long ago
I was just a lonely person with a lonely heart
And I was hopin’ there could one day be
Be a chance for me to…

Get the love that I’d been missin’
Sometimes love takes a long time
But, wait for love and you’re gonna get the
Chance to love – wait for love, wait for love
Ooh my

When you take the chance on love you see
It’s not a waste of time if you truly believe
The impossible can be
So hold on tight if you think you’re right
‘Cause nothing hurts as bad as when you see
You gave up too easily

Now I remember spending all my time
On a dream that kept me wishing that you could be mine
And I was hopin’ there could one day be
Be a chance for me to…

Get the love that I’d been missin’
Sometimes love takes a long time
But, wait for love and you’re gonna get the
Chance to love – wait for love, wait for love
Ooh my

I never stopped believing there could one day be
Be a chance for me to

Get the love that I’d been missin’
Sometimes love takes a long time
But, wait for love and you’re gonna get the
Chance to love – wait for love, wait for love
Ooh my

I grew up hearing Luther. he was one of my mother’s favorites and she has ALL of the albums–yes actual LPs. This song was on the 1985 The Night I Fell in Love. of course I knew nothing of waiting for love when I was 4 years old! LOL.

this song just makes me feel some type of way! I read a lot of blogs and articles about relationships, not to mention I’m a woman so obviously I am being engaged in lots of conversations with other women about relationships….lots of pessimism going around. This song just makes me feel a little better about it all…how ironic is it that I love a song about waiting…and I’m THE most impatient person  I know?!

    OK!!! Reading the lyrics gave me chills. I love this song and the messgae! I like you have a very personal connection with this song.

    There are a handful of songs that take me THERE and this is one.

    I feel you on this. There’s a handful of songs out there that just DO ME IN when I hear them. The Luther song that makes me cry ERRYTIME is Superstar/Until You Come Back To Me…man.

    “Don’t you remember you told me you loved me baby….you said you’d be coming back this way again…..baby baby baby baby oh baby…I love you, I really do.”

    Shoot…knock me over with a feather. 😉
