Lyrically- Can I walk with you.

One day, I’ll write about what this song by India Arie means to me but today? I’ll be content with sharing the lyrics.
Can I Walk With You”

I woke up this morning you were the first thing on my mind

I don’t know were it came from all I know is I need you in my life, yeah

You make me feel like I can be a better woman

If you just say you wanna take this friendship to another place

Lyrically- You decorated my life.

So Kenny Rogers is an old friend of mine, his music that is. Today I’m putting up one of his many songs, this one is one of my favourite songs by him and I think it’s so beautiful! 
                        “You Decorated My Life”

All my life was a paper
Once plain, pure and white
Till you moved with your pen
Changing moods now and then
Till the balance was right

Then you added some music
Every note was in place
And anybody could see
All the changes in me
By the look on my face

And you decorated my life
Created a world where dreams are apart
And you decorated my life
By painting your love all over my heart
You decorated my life

Like a rhyme with no reason
And an unfinished song
There was no harmony
Life meant nothing to me
Until you came along

And you brought out the colors
What a gentle surprise
Now I’m able to see
All the things life can be
Shining soft in your eyes

And you decorated my life
Created a world where dreams are apart
And you decorated my life
By painting your love all over my heart
You decorated my life

Love the one you’re with.

I haven’t listened to Luther Vandross this year and the pull to listen to him has been phenomenally strong. This evening, I finally found time to listen to him (I don’t listen to Luther if I have things to do, he deserves total attention), singing along as the music took me on that beautiful ride that only Luther’s music can.love-the-one-youre-with Continue reading →

Modern Hymns- Un Lugar Celestial

It’s hard to believe I didn’t know Jack Velázquez until last week, I’d heard a few of her songs before but it didn’t click until last Monday when I heard her album in the bus I boarded from Ikeja to Costain.

I heard Un lugar celestial and I was enraptured, it is such a beautiful song! Perfection really, from the lyrics to the vocals and the instrumental harmony. God bless Jaci for singing this. 

Before I gush further, here are the lyrics thanks to lyricsmode.com

        Un Lugar celestial

Sometimes I realize, when I gaze in the skies,
This spinning world is not my home.
A place of mystery, a land of destiny
Is where I know one day I’ll go.
I dream of beauty I have never seen.
I know the arms of heaven wait for me
And yet I feel it’s sweetness here and now
In this life on earth I have found.

Un lugar celestial, [a heavenly place]
Just a little bit of heaven sent from up above.
Un lugar celestial, [a heavenly place]
Where the presence of my father holds me in his love.
Un lugar celestial. [a heavenly place]

When all my skies are gray, I simply steal away
Into my secret hiding place.
When hearts are cold as ice, the breath of paradise
Blows warm and gentle on my face.
I know I need my time alone with him,
His healing waters flowing deep within.
Don’t have to wish upon a distant star,
’cause the light of love fills my heart.

Un lugar celestial, [a heavenly place]
Just a little bit of heaven sent from up above.
Un lugar celestial, [a heavenly place]
Where the presence of my father holds me in his love.
Un lugar celestial. [a heavenly place]

Ooo ooo ooo (el cielo me llama) [heaven is calling me]
Ooo ooo ooo (caminando en las nubes) [walking on the clouds]
Ooo ooo ooo (dulce beso de libertad) [sweet kiss of liberty]
Ooo ooo ooo (nubes de gloria) [clouds of glory]
Un lugar celestial. [a heavenly place]
Just a little bit of heaven sent from up above.
Un lugar celestial, [a heavenly place]
Where the presence of my father holds me in his love.
Un lugar celestial, [a heavenly place]
Just a little bit of heaven sent from up above.
Un lugar celestial, [a heavenly place]
Where the presence of my father holds me in his love.
Un lugar celestial. [a heavenly place]
