The Soundtrack of My Life

the music that keeps me going…

2012: What a Year!

Happy Holidays friends!

its been awhile I know, no need to dwell on that. I’ve been around…

I just wanted to take a few moments to talk about how great this year was for me. One thing I MAY love just as much as cooked food, is live music. And in 2012, I absolutely set a record in my life for live music.  Outdoor festivals, intimate dinner shows, club performances, and concert arenas!!! I did it all. Warning this post is kinda long–there is a lot to cover.

Since my birthday is in the fall, I spent the majority of 2012 commemorating the changing of the guard: I turned 30. and while it didn’t seem that major to me at the time, upon reflecting on this year I can say I’ve had wayyyyy more good times, great times even than bad and I’m gonna just go ahead and make the correlation there–the 30s have been good to me thus far. Now 31 years old, I’ve continued to learn more about myself, and I just really have to look back and reflect on all the awesome moments. Epic memories that will be treasured. I’m not totally where I want to be but I’m on my way! and I’ve had a great time on the journey thus far.  This blog is my way of capturing some of it, the musical moments at least.

I started off 2012, January 1st to be specific at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD to see Wale. Now there was a time that this dude was my FAVORITE new rapper–somewhere around 2009. In 2011 I saw him at Merriweather Post Pavilion as an act for Lupe Fiasco’s LASERS tour. I dug his show so I was curious to see him solo. I was surprised to see all the hipsters and teens in the crowd but I guess I shouldn’t have, huh? The Ambition album had been out awhile and he did a good mix of songs from that, his studio debut as well as his mixtapes (read: his better material). The events that took place at this show with my girl and I cannot be exposed (lol) but just know it was a wild, humorous day, that lended to a great concert going experience and we had a ball.

This blog would be incomplete if I did not include the numerous performances of DC’s own Black Alley. I moved to this area late 2010 and got put on to them in 2011. Going to see Black Alley perform is one of my regular highlights in 2012 whether it be Stadium on Wednesdays, Bar 7 on Thursdays, or Indulj on Fridays we were in the place jamming to this soul garage band. I really was pressed to buy their CD Soul Swagger Rock Sneakers. It was sold out at EVERY show I went to. I eventually copped it on iTunes and it did NOT disappoint. In addition to their weekly club gigs, I saw Black Alley perform at the NY Ave Beach Bar and on the Navy Pier for an All White Party in the summer among other local bands. great times. One of my absolute favorite songs that Black Alley covers is Katy Perry’s “ET.”  In my opinion its better than the original. I also like their cover of FUN’s “We Are Young”.

The spring was pretty ho hum but ooooh we turned it up in May at Drake’s Club Paradise tour at the Verizon Center. This show had a full cast of all the hot rappers and while we didn’t get there in time to see 2Chainz, we saw performances by Meek Mill, Waka Flocka Flame, J. Cole, and “Mr. Marvin’s Room” himself, Aubrey Graham aka Drake. He did not disappoint. He also brought out these artists during his set to do various collabos such as “Amen”  “Round of Applause” and “No Lie”. I was totally miffed that J. Cole and Drake did NOT perform “In the Morning” together, that made no sense to me. Cole had a pretty high energy set (I was surprised) and he did that song solo. errr. why?  I am not a  Waka fan so while he has party jams they didn’t really translate well live to me. So yea, that was my cue to sit down and rest my feet before the party really got live. All in all people seem to really love or hate Drake and I lean on the love side. He did a great job of making it feel like “a club” and I mean dude has party anthems–how can you NOT party? I danced and totally felt the vibe. great show.

In August I attended the annual Summer Spirit Festival that takes place at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD. I missed this show last year because they cancelled it for some reason so I was excited to go this year. A plus was that it fell on my boo TT’s birthday so this wrapped up her bday festivities. its a outdoor lawn concert in the heart of summer so… it was HOT!! scorching even. And I decided to wear a black tshirt–what was I thinking?? smh. I had fun though. Acts included Eric Roberson (I had seen better sets of his); Estelle– a REALLY good set! and she sounded SUPERB LIVE. I was impressed; Chuck Brown Tribute Band (they were soooo dope! and you know the dc area crowd favorites); Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings — LISTEN. my first time seeing them live and jeez! that Sharon Jones ROCKED. ROCKED I SAY! she was having a full on party on that stage by herself. The Dap Kings provided great musicianship that really epitomized what I love about live music. Common performed also and he was his usual fahn self.

The headliner was no other than my boo thang Erykah Badu. *sigh* she hurt my heart yall. She performed like what 5, 6 songs? changed the melody up on too many of them and just didn’t seem into it. and didn’t even perform her best hits. I went home and immediately played Mama’s Gun to keep her in good standing in my life cuz I wanted to quit her that day. I’ve seen her do much better before so I’ma just let this go…

Labor Day weekend we redeemed ourselves missing 2Chainz at Club Paradise when we caught his show at the 9:30 Club in DC. Now, I admit I was not the biggest Tity Boi fan until he put out “Spend It” and got on a few features this year but hey. This was definitely his year and his show was high energy from beginning to end. It was also my first time in the 9:30 Club. His album hadn’t even been out a solid week I don’t think and he performed ALL THE SONGS, and the crowd knew them all (including me, lol). He definitely turned up and I had a great time. I think this had a lot to do with the timing of me seeing this show. He’s not the kind of artist with timeless music that you’d want to hear live over and over but I enjoyed myself in that moment.

Later in September I visited the Howard Theatre in DC to see Miguel. Howard Theatre was recently renovated and reopened earlier this year I believe, and they  have some great shows!!! If I was rich I’d just post up there daily. I mean, they ALWAYS have someone good coming there, and the prices are pretty reasonable–anywhere from $20-50 bucks. If you are in the area I definitely recommend you peruse their website and attend a show or two, or three. lol. I thought the theater was beautiful and while this show was standing room like many of the others, its visually gorgeous not a hole in the wall.

Now, I can admit that am an official Miguel stan. I wasn’t before this show–ok yes I was. His first album was R&B perfection to me.  I also saw him for the first time during the LASERS show and I knew he could rock. But THIS SHOW??  This show was about a week or so before his sophormore album came out and I am not lying I ran to the stores to buy it after seeing him live. He WOWED ME. I had previously heard most of the tracks due to the preview EPs he put out but yea, hearing them performed live sold it for me. His voice sounds just like the cd’s, his guitarist was dope sauce and just! AMAZING SHOW. lots of fun. Miguel is like a young Prince–he blends genres, he’s kinda androgynous, he’s sexy in a weird way… I dig him. A LOT. I’ve anticipated and enjoyed every single thing he’s put out and I can only hope for more greatness in him.

In October just a couple days after my bday, I met friends at The Birchmere in Alexandria, VA to see the Robert Glasper Experiment. If you haven’t heard their latest album Black Radio please check it out! It was a tad disappointing they didn’t have any special guests to sing their songs (they are a eclectic jazz band that incorporates all genres; Glasper is a pianist) but it was quite an enjoyable show. The music is just so intoxicating. He recently released a Black Radio Remix EP but I haven’t yet checked it out.

In November I got the opportunity to go see MR. STEVIE WONDER at the Norfolk Scope for an Obama campaign rally. Listen. I drove from Maryland that same afternoon and went back the next day, it was that serious to go see that living legend Stevie. We rocked out too! Even though Stevie likes to remix his songs (to my chagrin) changing the lyrics to make them relevant to the situation, I enjoyed myself. and it was free! gotta love free.

3 days later I went with a girlfriend to The Hamilton to see Alice Smith. I wrote a blog about her not a couple years ago wondering where she had been so of COURSE I had to go see her. It was my first time seeing her live and SHE DID NOT DISAPPOINT. That woman can SANG! Now I am not gay but I was so close to the stage and she was so gorgeous and awesome and I’m not lying I kinda fell in love with her there. yea. She said she has a new album coming out in February and I sincerely hope so because I need more of her in my life. After that show I listened to her 2006 debut daily for about a week afterwards. Yes, she did that. I love when an artist moves you like that. She and Miguel are my top shows this year.

So after that great show we immediately found out Emily King was also coming to The Hamilton. What a coinkydink she was also in that same blog post!!! Her 2007 debut East Side Story was one I played TO DEATH. She also put out an EP last year, and a single here and there so I was curious to see her live. She played the guitar along with many of the songs, and it was just a very mellow show. She did a couple covers but mostly performed songs from the Seven EP. Good times! The Hamilton has become my fave venue in the DC area so far and I look forward to more shows in such a visually pleasing, intimate setting.  I also have enjoyed experiencing up and coming artists that open in these smaller venues. I haven’t spent much time discovering new artists but as a soul music lover its good to know so many people are still out here grinding and dedicated to sharing great music with the world!

So that’s my year. as it wraps up, I look forward to ending it in true music lover fashion: on December 31st I will be back at the Fillmore to see THE LEGENDARY ROOTS CREW. I saw them in December last year and they never disappoint so this is the perfect way for me, to end such an awesome year. I now know where all my money has been going. lol. And on shoes, can’t forget the shoes. 🙂

This post was long, but it was overdue! Happy holidays music lovers. Maybe this post will inspire you to check out more live music in your area, discover some new artists, or revisit some old favorites. Here’s to more great times in 2013. Maybe I’ll be inspired to blog about them, or not. But don’t give up on ya girl!!   🙂

Did you attend any awesome concerts this year? discover any new artists? let me know!!

I pick my friends like I pick my fruit…

My Ganny told me that when I was only a youth
I don’t go ’round trying to be what I’m not
I don’t waste my time trying ta get what you got
I work at pleasin’ me cause I can’t please you
and that’s why I do what I do
My soul flies free like a willow tree
doo wee doo wee do wee

“My soul flies free like a willow tree.” hmm. I’m working on that…

I heard this song riding on the train this AM and this particular verse stood out to me. Friends. I think this word is often misused and abused. And I say this as a person that has a lot of friends, and by a lot I mean, I can count them on more than one hand.

I consider a friend someone that I can share my life with–in good and bad times, someone that gives and gets advice, someone that I look up to, someone that inspires and encourages.

I used to think good friends were hard to come by, until I realized I had several. When you are a good person, you attract good people. I don’t talk to them all daily, or see them that often. Some I’ve never even seen in person (yes, I’ve made friends with people online–it took years of personal fellowship though). I didn’t used to think that was possible, but it absolutely is so. When you have something in common with someone and you share parts of your life with them and hold confidences, I consider that friendship. I don’t take any of it lightly. You get what you give.

Even saying that, I pick my friends like I pick my fruit: carefully, cautiously. Thoughtful of what I’m ingesting as nourishment. Ponder on that: thoughtful of what I’m ingesting as nourisment. Do you uplift me? Do I learn from you? Do you feel the same way about me? Some people have maintained friends simply because of time and history. As long as its not toxic, I can live with that, but there must be some new memories, some new lessons to keep the friendship afloat. Other people you outgrow with the seasons and I can live with that as well. No hard feelings, just moving along and moving on.

And if you don’t want to be down with me
You don’t want to pick from my appletree…

I think I’ve done a good job of maintaining my apple tree. At 29 years old, I know its not complete, some will rot and fall off, others will grow; but I’m good with where it is right now!

and just because, another song about friendship that I adore.

I actually blogged about this song in particular and briefly touched on friendship here.

What about you? Do you think you do a good job of maintaining friends? Making new ones? Any favorite song(s) about or that remind you of friendship?

What’s in my Earbuds: New Music

There have been a lot of new releases lately. So many that they all kinda got away from me. I had to make a conscious effort to really listen in order to give some serious feedback. A few peeps have been asking me for reviews of various artists so I figure I could write a comprehensive post of all that I’ve been listening to lately to get a feel for what to check for. Now mind you a few of these have not passed the “whip test” yet so maybe things will change–riding in the car is always necessary for me to get a real feel for the music.

As you all may remember I was pretty disappointed with musical releases in 2009. While Jay Z and Wale grew on, even the Trey Songz is a bit more tolerable (still prefer Anticipation or his older cds) the rest of the big projects from my favorite artists that I anticipated for 2009 were a bust for me. yeah.

first up, my babe Raheem’s The Love & War Masterpeace. He came strong with the Mr. February x March Madness mixtape and it got me exciteable for the new project.  Well. First off let me say all the interludes with Cornel West grated on my nerves! grrr. Too much talking. I love the poetry of Malik Yusef, so that I didn’t mind, but Cornell just got to me after awhile. I was like enough already.

Standout tracks to me are: B.O.B., Microphone, Mr. Right, Fragile, I Don’t Care. and of course I love Bulletproof. I feel the same way about it as I did when Love Behind the Melody first came out: this is NOT as good as the previous release! hmph. But LBTM had lots of secret gems I didn’t really get to feeling initially because I was so caught up in comparisons. I know I shouldn’t do that, but I do feel The Love Experience is a classic. Its really hard to top.

Next is Monica’s Still Standing. I wanted this sooooo bad! I love Mo and since Amerie disappointed me BIG TIME last year, I just felt another jinx in my spirit. Its too good to be true…this CD is gonna suck! I was pleasantly surprised. It really doesn’t suck, and I’m so glad my gut feeling was wrong. “Everything to Me” is my favorite song right now. Really crept up on me, like WOW. I can’t stop singing it and I have not grown tired of it yet, no matter how many times I hear it on the radio. This CD is a lot more solid than The Makings of Me and After the Storm. My favorite is The Boy is Mine, and nostalgia makes it hard for a new CD to ever top an older one for me (see the two next artists for a further examples) but this one is really REALLY good. Standout songs are: One in a Lifetime, Superman, Believing in Me (lawd this song!) and Love all Over Me.

Ms.  Badu, Ms. Badu. You had the internets going NUTS with all that junk in the trunk! so funny just a week ago I was quoting Booty and I even mentioned in my post on theme songs, she wasn’t toting like she is now when she wrote that song…but boy is she now! Anyway, not gonna dwell on her ass–on to the music. I LOVE Baduizm and as I posted last week, Mama’s Gun is my favorite. I also enjoy Live. The memories make it hard for me to love newer music because the old stuff…well there’s a HISTORY. Its like an old lover…they do you SO right, its so familiar. Why get used to someone new when you have the comfort of old? I digress. The music matured with me, so it’ll always be sentimental. Having said that, as Ms. Badu stated on 106 & Park yesterday (yes I watch daily, don’t judge me) where pt. 1 was the more conscious, political side of her brain, pt. 2 is the more romantic, emotional side. I dig that. Standout tracks are: 20 Feet Tall, Out My Mind, Gone Baby, Turn Me Away (Get Munny), Fall in Love (Your Funeral) and my favorite–way before the the video Window Seat.

whew, and lastly, Usher. *sigh* where do I begin? Have I blogged about how much I used to adore him? Well if not its worthy of its own post. His first two cd’s were soundtracks to my teenage love affairs (one with Mr. Raymond himself–in my mind). His first cd, with cuts like “I’ll Make it Right”, “The Many Ways”, “Can U Get With It”, “Think of You” were bangers. This 14 year old, like Monica with a voice waaay too mature for his age with lyrics just as grown.  My Way is my favorite.  Confessions was when he peaked musically, with breakup songs (Throwback being a favorite), sexy songs (Can U Handle It, That’s What It’s Made For),  fun songs (Yeah, Bad Girl–a personal anthem) AND love songs–the true to life relationship album really worked for him…THEN. Raymond vs. Raymond, not so much.

I agree that those that say Usher may just have lost his touch. In my opinion, two artists that have eclipsed him musically–Trey Songz and Ne-Yo. They dropped solo debuts after Confessions and have been on a roll ever since–both are better at doing what they do right now than Usher is! Ne Yo has the sappy romantic songs LOCKED UP as far as mainstream R&B to me, and is vocally as strong. Trey is sanging folks out of their panties (granted most are under 25) about neighbors knowing his name and inventing sex. Even though Ush had me excited on the remix for a minute…its a damn shame when your own music isn’t that good.  Anyway, the standout is There Goes My Baby. I love this song! its exactly how I want him to sound in 2010. Others I like so far are Okay and Mars vs. Venus.  Lil Freak and Daddy’s Home grew on me also. His voice is still amazing and I love it. *sigh* I’ll work on this CD some more, perhaps it will grow on me.

so there it is, what I have been bumpin! what do you think of my standout track choices–agree? disagree? not feeling the albums? loving them? let me know!

What Good Do Your Words Do?

if they can’t understand you?

so I’ve been on a Badu kick lately. it doesn’t take much, she’s one of my favorite artists; her music as diverse as her looks. I would be lying if I said she doesn’t at times confuse me, but she always keeps me watching, waiting, and wanting more–so I suppose she’s doing something right. I’ve seen her live a couple times and that just adds to the experience, IMO.

Mama’s Gun is my favorite album of hers, but of course I love Baduizm. I even dedicated a post to my favorite song on that cd (which was not a single) that truly repesents the complex indecisiveness that means to be a Libra.

another song from MG, is one of my many theme songs, which lyrics I have been known to quote on twitter and facebook often, for the hell of it. I can do that, lol. that song is “Booty.” its just a great song–like your man is all up ON THIS, but I’m not EVEN sweating his cheating trifling ass! girl let him go!

with the leaks of Jump Up in the Air, Window Seat, and now Strawberry Incense…I can say that I am definitely looking forward to her new CD.

here are more songs by her that I absolutely adore (click the links for some treats):

Ye Yo: this song brings me to tears–yall  know I’m in touch with the tear duct ministry,  so this should come to no surprise. I remember when I first got my copy of the Live cd–it came in the mail–of course I was BMG/Columbia House down, and this song stood out to me the most.  “cause sometimes you feel like, you’re by yourself…” as she says that her voice cracks a little and I just FELT every bit of this song. still do. “sometimes, sometimes I get so lonely lonely lonely, I feel all by myself up here…” now being older and have lived a bit longer–I still know how that feels. she sings with so much emotion, and I love a song that gives that.

Otherside of the Game“now me & baby got this situation, see brother got this complex occupation…and I ain’t saying that this life don’t work, but its me & baby that he hurts…”.  I have never seen a drug dealer with the style of Andre 300o but she made it somewhat believable, lol.

Kiss Me on My Neck: THIS SONG! whew lawd…I don’t think I need to say much more…but. I feel the sentiment. Indeed.

Master Teacher: I STAY WOKE! nuff said.

Love of my Life: you know I gotta love the Ode to Hip Hop! this was a cool video too…

Didn’t Cha Know: the cool. I rode out to this in my car today, windows down and just felt serene. this is a chill song, the instrumentation is awesome.

Back in the Day: another cool, very chill song…

Green Eyes: the quintessential ‘im still not over you’ song. “I’m insecure, but I can’t help it. My mind says move on, my heart lags behind…”

Telephone: When her last CD came out, I just loved her voice on this.  Then I read that this song was a tribute to Dilla and that made more sense in regards to the lyrics &  the song more sentimental to me.

Telephone,
Its Ol’ Dirty..
He wants to give you directions home
Said it wont be too long
Said it wont be too long

Telephone…
It’s too early
We want to hear a long song..
Transition with a real slow fade

Just fly away to heaven brother
Make a place for me brother
Fly away to heaven brother
Save a place for me brother
Fly away to heaven brother
Put in a word for me…
Telephone
Oh

Of course there are many more songs I love…but if I listed them all, what would you all share in the comments?!

and lastly not her song, but one I love featuring her, from one of my favorite groups, The Roots.

so tell me, do you dig Badu? what are some of your favorites?

oooh that’s my song!

now that’s usually what I say, aloud or in my mind when I hear “the jam”. The jam is the song that for whatever reason is the one that makes you get up off your butt acting saditty poo and go on to the dance floor and do your thing. its usually the song that makes you do a bit more than the 2 step special, this one makes you really cut a rug, sing at the top of your lungs and some whatever else is your steelo.

but this post isn’t about those songs necessarily. This post is about THEME SONGS. Every woman has a song that is her ANTHEM; now I’m not talking Irreplaceable or Singles Ladies, but I mean an anthem that when you hear it you think its played just.for.you.

This Yo Gotti character got girls thinking they are 5 Star Chicks and, while I think the concept is hood, that’s a good example.  One of my faves used to be “Bad Bitch” by Webbie. #dontjudgeme. I have my hood moments!! lmao


But seriously here is my list, finally. REECIE’S THEME SONGS:

“That girl thinks that she’s so fine
That soon she’ll have my mind
That girl thinks that she’s so smart
That soon she’ll have my heart…

That girl thinks that she’s so bad
She’ll change my tears from joy to sad
She says she keeps the upper hand
‘Cause she can please her man
She doesn’t use her love to make him weak
She uses love to keep him strong
And inside me there’s no room for doubt
That it won’t be too long”-
That Girl, Stevie Wonder. My #1 theme song…

There She Goes– Babyface: could just be the Neptunes beat, but when I heard this song I immediately put it on “the list”

Bad Girl-Usher: those that know me already knew this one. this is also one of my in the club “oooooooh shit!” songs. gotta get up and do my thing. Sing with me: “whatchall know about a, supermodel”

Bossy-Kelis: *hangs head* I know its cliche, but this really was my song!

Being a Girl-Van Hunt: “Every once-in-awhile you meet a chile, that drives you wild, with unmistakable, downtown style…she just can’t help being a girl, she just can’t help-her-self, full of spectacle and charm like nothing else. Being a girl…”

Booty -Erykah Badu: “your booty might be bigga, but I can still pull your nigga but I don’t want him…” this damn song! Badu made this one before she got thick wit it. lol

Queen Bitch-Lil Kim: I told y’all I have my moments. this song was IT in high school. of course I still know all the words.

Flashing Lights-Kanye West: I’m not really sure why, but it is. lol

Sexy Lady-UCB: ok my DMV folks and go go heads know this…“sexy lady, give me your number giirrrrlllll, sexy lady, I wanna rock your world”. ok. you can’t tell me he isn’t singing to me when this comes on. ” damn girl you sexy as you wanna be, that mean walk…”

The One -Cee Lo ft. TI & Jazze Pha: I have blogged about this song a couple times, but its seriously my MF’in jam. like I love this song so much I can’t even explain it.  First time I heard this I was in the club in St, Louis and everyone was putting their “ones” in the air and I was like, well alright! lol. had to come home and download it. I’ll just post my favorite lyrics because they just rock. lol

It’s our privilege, to have had this conversation
It’s our privilege, and to have had this relation
It’s our privilege, I been searching all evening
For somebody who can and finally sent me the one
It’s our privilege, to have made you laugh
It’s our privilege, and to have crossed your path
It’s our privilege, you’re the star yes you are
Can have your autograph cuz you lookin like THE ONE
It’s our privilege, to have seen your face
It’s our privilege, and I bet you taste so good, let’s get one thing understood
I’ll be good yes I would, especially for the one

^^ no, Cee-lo isnt’ fine but he’s singing that part to me. I promise. I imagine it as him singing on behalf of TI though. ;-p

Others mentioned on other blog posts have been Wanna Love you Girl, Prototype, She Got Her Own, Sometimes,  Muah, PYT, Be Happy…I mean, you know a good song when you hear it, right? I don’t really have or need a lot of people gas me up in life–because I gas myself. no harm in that is it? nope. *pats self on the back and keeps dancing*

“she’s the kinda girl you wanna marry, the kinda you  walk the whole earth for, put her on your back and just carry, her attitude is hotter than the earth’s core…”

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Do men have theme songs?! just curious…

Sometimes…

today is October 1st. Libra season is here!  yeah, I know there are September Libras but–since I rep for October I don’t really care about them right now! its officially fall, its gotten cooler–even here, and I’m just ready to embrace the season.

Today’s song is one of my personal theme songs (post coming soon about those!) and to me it just epitomizes the mentality of a Libra. We are known for a few things, mostly seeking balance in our lives (i.e. the scales), and being incredibly indecisive!

Indecisive should be my middle name. I hate having to pick where to eat, what to do, where to go. HATE IT. not because I don’t have ideas or suggestions, but because I have TOO MANY. I can’t ever choose! I always tell others to “just pick something”, but because I’m also picky (terrible combo huh?) I’m usually not satisfied with their choice.

ah, to be me. Yesterday I had some one on one time with Ms. Badu and this song came on. its been one of my favorites since the very first time I heard it–I remember I got the Baduizm CD back in high school and this song, and “No Love” were my immediate favorites. Maybe I was going through something at the time, not sure but I do know I liked these songs more than the main singles. Badu is my girl, DEFINITELY one of my favorite artists out. so here we go…. Sometimes…

Ye yo ye yo ye yo ye yo

Sometimes…
I don’t love you anymore
Sometimes, I’m in love with you
Sometimes, I think that I’m going mad
Sometimes,
I do
well

Meanwhile…
You been runnin’ through my dome
Meanwhile, Won’t leave me alone
Ooh chile…
Why it got to be this way
Ooh chile, gone on!

Can you tell me where, oh where
Oh where, oh where?
WHERE DID THE LOVE GO

Sometimes…
I think that you’re draining me
Sometimes, I want you at home
Sometimes, I feel like forgiving you
Sometimes, I don’t

Meanwhile…
I cannot blame you, my love
Meanwhile, I’m sitting here alone
Ooh chile…
This love affair ain’t what it was
Ohh chile, gone on
Can you tell me where, oh where
Oh where, where?
WHERE DID THE LOVE GO

Ye yo ye yo ye yo ye yo ye yo

very simple song, to the point which is…what is the point? oh in this love thing–and life thing sometimes, we just can’t make up our minds! we just don’t know. I know its part of my nature, but all of you that AREN’T Libras, I know you have been there too!
