Ladies Love Lyrics: Currently

I am back on my music kick. For a while, music and specifically lyrics were too much for me. There is a saying that when you're happy, you enjoy the music. But, when you're sad, you understand the lyrics.That has been beyond true with me lately. But, I've decided to reclaim music because it's my thing. I can't let a person or a situation take that away from me. So, no more avoiding certain songs or cringing when I hear them. Now, I just enjoy what I enjoy. Here are a few of my current faves. As always, the lyrics are what made me a fan. Get into all of them!

"This is not an excuse
I'm just telling the truth
Baby, I'm so sorry
For hurting you

Oh, I'm ashamed of me (Shame on me)
Wish I never done you wrong (Shame on me)
Every night of us I dream
That I wake up in your arms

I know why you left me
But since you've been gone
My understanding
Has moved and grown
I've come to this conclusion
Over and over again
I don't want an enemy
I just want back my friend."

"Oh, silly me my dear, for thinking that you'd stay
Gave you my heart and then you ran away
Either I'm stupid, I'm foolish, or you're playing me
But it seems we were never really meant to be

So I thought I would try something new
I wanted to find out if I could live happy without you
And it turned out I wasn't living at all
I'd rather never known if you had just played along

I was living the dream believing things that just ain't true
Oh I can't believe I ever believed in you
You had me chasing fool's gold
I was chasing fool's gold."

"Just let it burn
Let it, let it burn
Call me crazy but I think I found the love of my life

Feel it creepin' in your heart
Ooh baby can you feel it tearing you apart?
That's right that's love
When it comes, you never wanna give it up
And baby, I'm caught in the light and I ain't gonna fight it
There's no use in tryin', I'm yours
And I want you to want me the way that I would you and more."

"Head on your chest babe, but your heart is so quietWe use to talk all night long, now we laying in silenceYour arms around me but your soul is somewhere elseGone so long and I know you so wellI know that you are everything that I ever dreamed ofAnd I hoped that love had a happy endingBaby you should be here, right hereBaby you should be here, right hereDon't know where you went but you're lost nowDon't know where you went but you're gone now."
"Last night you didn't call,Had me worried all night longWhy you keep doing me wrong?I don't know, babe!And it hurts so badI'm tired of being sad,This house is not a homeThe love is gone, baby!I just can't see it, I can't see, baby!Staying in this with you, you, you, you!If you love me, set me free!"

"The first time you shot me down I was grazed
Second round was never found, it ricocheted
Nowhere to run, I was stunned in a daze
A victim of a love I can't escape

I remember when you said you loved me
Three little words that burned into my soul
Maybe you didn't mean those things you told me
Maybe you didn't really mean those words at all"

"So you say you wanna get away 
We don't need a plane
We'll be your escape
Take you to a place
Where there is no time, no space
I could be your private island
On a different planet
Anything could happen
Listen to the waves
Let them wash away your pain

I could be your fantasy
I could be your fantasy
Underneath the palm trees
You could leave your worries
Listen to the waves
Sure you wanna get so high?
Breath me in like air tonight."

May I Speak Randomly?!

  • I have fallen more in love with my natural hair. I have perfected my two strand twist out a few weeks ago. I am loving it. Natural hair ftw!!
  • I have been introduced to some really great music in the past few weeks. All of it has been inspiring me. I am thankful for it. 
  • For weeks, I have been having the best sleep ever. And, for me, that's a huge deal because insomnia has been an issue for a while for me. I couldn't be happier about it. Sleep is always a great thing. 
  • I have a bad case of word vomit. It's usually aided by alcohol. Word vomit is the act of saying way too much & usually to the wrong person. I am trying to get over this affliction. Ayudame, por favor. 
  • I've been a bad blogger/writer lately. I think I was taking my talent for granted. I need to do better and I will. I also haven't really read anything in a minute either. It's all bad. I need something new to read desperately. 

  • In honor of sundress season, I have purchased no less than 6 sundresses &/or maxi dresses in the last week. They are basically all I want to exist in this summer. Sundresses & sandals & big hoop earrings. That's it. That's my goal. 
  • I used to be the biggest phone person. Loved to talk on the phone. Now, I hate it. I only want to talk to you if it's deemed necessary. I prefer to text. But, here's the caveat, you have to be able to hold a decent conversation via text. I don't want to do all the asking. Engage me damn it. Not to toot my own horn but I am  highly intelligent, sarcastic, funny as hell and a wordsmith. So, I can literally talk/text with anyone about anything. It's a gift. But, I will bow out if I feel like you can't carry your end. Trust me. I'm so sincere. 
  • Redbox is my new bae. I am actively cheating on Netflix. I have watched no less than 10 movies in the last few weeks. The Wedding Ringer was hilarious. But, I enjoyed all of them.
  • I  am the Queen of deletion. I get rid of things mainly so I won't obsess over them. Which, in theory, is a great thing. Until I need them again. I just deleted about 100 photos off of my Instagram. Just as many from my Tumblr. For reasons. I really have to break myself out of this terrible habit. Because right now I am kicking myself for getting rid of a certain email. I have no way of getting it back. I really have to do better. 
  • I think I have forgotten how to flirt and how to date. It's been so long since I've felt anything other than this overwhelming sadness from my last heartbreak. I'd really love to feel the butterflies again. Would love to feel wanted and needed and desired again. This is the year for me to go get it. I'm trusting the universe to give me what I want. Because I deserve it.
