    Hello, I would like to enter the summer lovin lyric contest. My song that inspires me is called I Blame You, by Ledis.here are some the lyrics: "People keep asking me about this glow I seem to have because I'm just not the same. They say I'm walking different talking different look like all of me has changed". My Husband is my best Friend We adare each other. This is our second marriage and I've never been happier! ( WE ARE SO MUCH ALIKE IT'S AMAZING! ) I was perfectly Guided by my personal psychic from Keen her name -Mali 7477.

    This song has inspired me so much that last year when I got married April 17th 2014, me and my Husband dance to the song with both nieces, sisters, brothers, and nephews and children. This was a surprise dance to them. One thing for sure, Everytime we hear the song (when we're out, my Husband, and i just smile and then my Husband smiles back at me and we sway in the car. Or if at a restaurant or out we just smile and we get up and dance we don't care That's what true Love will make you do!

    Love & Kisses,

    hi,the song that inspires me for summer love is "take me with u" by Prince,from the Purple rain soundtrack. the movie came out the summer i was 17,and i was a huge Prince fan already. i had to go see it the day it was released even though my my family and i were on vacation! i just couldn't wait till we got home. anyway,my first love,first time,was that summer also,and he rode a motorcycle,and he was a prince fan too! we made love to the 1999 soundtrack. so, "take me with u" reminds me of my first, he was on his bike,and offered me a ride,thats how we met.

    My song of choice is "summer" by Calvin Harris. It used to hurt me when I heard this song because when this song came out about 2 years ago I was going through a breakup with someone whom I met in the summer. The lyrics ambiguously but very wholeheartedly describes how feelings at the time, and now I just smile about it when I hear this song.

    "When I met you in the summer
    To my heartbeat sound
    We fell in love
    As the leaves turned brown

    And we could be together baby
    As long as skies are blue
    You act so innocent now
    But you lied so soon
    When I met you in the summer"


    It illustrates the beauty and the fun of the "summer fling" --- the feel that feels so real and exciting at the time, but as fall comes around it shows its true colors and fades away.

    Accidentally submitted my previous comment without filling in the name and email..so here it is again.

    My song of choice is "Summer" by Calvin Harris. It used to hurt me to hear the lyrics because the song is just so beautiful but the lyrics speak the truth. At the time (when the song came out) I was going through a break up with someone whom I met in the summer. Everything was "perfect" i thought, until fall came around and the summer "fling" started to die down. As summer faded out, so did the connection and the relationship.


    "When I met you in the summer
    To my heartbeat sound
    We fell in love
    As the leaves turned brown

    And we could be together baby
    As long as skies are blue
    You act so innocent now
    But you lied so soon
    When I met you in the summer"

    The lyrics perfectly illustrates my situation. But also a summer fling in general- that exciting, electrifying feeling you get when you have a fling..but then the realization that it was only going to be another lesson.

    You're touching me with hands of fire
    Just comes naturally
    I'm not easily hot, you just hit the spot
    Nothing to prove, I know you've got a lot

    I see your face and chills run up and down my legs
    I hear your voice, my passion's pumpin' through my veins
    I feel your touch, the heat is driving me insane
    I give in, I think I wanna love you
    And I don't think I'll ever stop
    No, I don't

    In the heat of heat
    The heat is so hot
    My body takes control
    In the heat of heat
    The heat gets so hot
    My passion overloads (My passion overloads)

    Heat of Heat By: Patti Austin

    I met my first true love at the age of sweet 16 & it was in Summer of 1986.This song reminds me so much of him & his kisses left me totally mesmerized!!!! What better way to remember your first love, a summer love than "Heat of Heat" by Ms. Patti Austin

    The song that inspires my "Summer Lovin Days" is a song called H20 by Tink. I choose this song because I met a guy around summertime last year and since I met him we been inseparable. We laugh together, talking about deep things, are both spiritual, get on each other's nerves, have a lot of ups and down. But somehow, we overcome the obstacles that we both endure. In the song Tink says

    "You put the smile in my cheek bones
    You are the one that I need close
    You are my clock in the am
    Summer time is when we lay in
    You're the lace to my shoes
    Cup to my booze
    One that I call late night when I'm loose
    Stars to my sky
    Wheels to my ride
    Reason that I dropped off every other guy
    You're an angel in disguise
    Boy you really make me fly
    Only man that has my eyes
    I just enjoy, your sense of humor
    You're like a tumor
    You're in my head all day"

    This is so true the way I feel about him. He was my summertime love since 2015. He really was an angel in disguise because the time I met him I was going through a difficult time in my life and his spirit & aura brought me back to health.

    The song that inspires me is Open Arms by Journey. My boyfriend sang it to me on our first date in 2005 - and it still makes my heart flutter when I hear it. I even have that song as his ring tone to this day. He still makes my heart flutter although he is afraid of committment.

    My fiancé that passed away use to sing off key and with the words all messed up the song by Bread, Baby I'm-a want you. We were older when we gat together although we had know each other for years. I was 9 years older and had worked right out of high school at a little party store near his family home. He use to come into the store and buy candy, pop etc... I also caught home trying to look at girly magazines!,
    Baby I'm a want you
    Baby I'm a need you
    You're the only one I care enough to hurt about.
    Every time I have a reading I am told he is near me and says he will always love me. A strange coincidence, when he passed and I left his home ( his children serve me eviction papers the day they pulled the plug on him) I had a new telephone service set up in my new place. My new number out of all the numbers it could have been was exactly the same as his and mine was except the last two numbers were switched! Gave me goose bumps. He was saying not to worry he was still around.

    My summer inspired love song is "True Love" by Faith Evans. I chose this song because it expresses the love I share with my Babe, who is my True Love!

    Lyrics


    It's true love, when you say you need me like I need you
    And you can't be without me, like I can't be without you
    It's true love, when we spend time talkin' on the phone
    'Cause when we're not around each other, we don't wanna to be alone

    It's true love, love, love, love
    Don't you know that it's good to be in love, love, love, love
    Just believe me truthfully 'cause
    Love is never ever makin' you cry, before I tell you a lie
    I'll give my life 'cause that's true love

    Song: Graceland
    Singer: Paul Simon (duh!)

    Lyrics:
    The Mississippi Delta was shining
    Like a National guitar
    I am following the river
    Down the highway
    Through the cradle of the civil war

    I'm going to Graceland
    Graceland
    In Memphis Tennessee
    I'm going to Graceland
    Poorboys and Pilgrims with families
    And we are going to Graceland
    My traveling companion is nine years old
    He is the child of my first marriage
    But I've reason to believe
    We both will be received
    In Graceland

    She comes back to tell me she's gone
    As if I didn't know that
    As if I didn't know my own bed
    As if I'd never noticed
    The way she brushed her hair from her forehead
    And she said losing love
    Is like a window in your heart
    Everybody sees you're blown apart
    Everybody sees the wind blow

    I'm going to Graceland
    Memphis Tennessee
    I'm going to Graceland
    Poorboys and Pilgrims with families
    And we are going to Graceland

    And my traveling companions
    Are ghosts and empty sockets
    I'm looking at ghosts and empties
    But I've reason to believe
    We all will be received
    In Graceland

    There is a girl in New York City
    Who calls herself the human trampoline
    And sometimes when I'm falling, flying
    Or tumbling in turmoil I say
    Oh, so this is what she means
    She means we're bouncing into Graceland
    And I see losing love
    Is like a window in your heart
    Everybody sees you're blown apart
    Everybody feels the wind blow

    In Graceland, in Graceland
    I'm going to Graceland
    For reasons I cannot explain
    There's some part of me wants to see
    Graceland
    And I may be obliged to defend
    Every love, every ending
    Or maybe there's no obligations now
    Maybe I've a reason to believe
    We all will be received
    In Graceland


    This song is about losing love, finding love, familiar love, romantic love, faith, and knowing that love is all around...It gives you "reason to believe". Plus, who doesn't like Paul Simon?!

    :D

    I have many but one of my all time favorites is from the movie Grease by Olivia Newton John

    "Summer Nights"

    Summer lovin', had me a blast
    Summer lovin', happened so fast
    Met a girl crazy for me
    Met a boy cute as can be
    Summer days drifting away
    To, uh oh, those summer nights

    Well-a, well-a, well-a, uh!
    Tell me more, tell me more
    Did you get very far?
    Tell me more, tell me more
    Like does he have a car?

    She swam by me, she got a cramp
    He ran by me, got my suit damp
    Saved her life, she nearly drowned
    He showed off splashing around
    Summer sun, something's begun
    But, uh oh, those summer nights

    Well-a, well-a, well-a, uh!
    Tell me more, tell me more
    Was it love at first sight?
    Tell me more, tell me more
    Did she put up a fight?
    Took her bowling in the arcade
    We went strolling; drank lemonade
    We made out under the dock
    We stayed out till ten o'clock
    Summer fling don't mean a thing
    But, uh oh, those summer nights

    Tell me more, tell me more
    But you don't gotta brag
    Tell me more, tell me more
    'Cause he sounds like a drag

    He got friendly holding my hand
    Well, she got friendly down in the sand
    He was sweet, just turned eighteen
    Well, she was good, you know what I mean
    Summer heat, boy and girl meet
    But, uh oh, those summer nights

    Tell me more, tell me more
    How much dough did he spend?
    Tell me more, tell me more
    Could she get me a friend?

    It turned colder; that's where it ends
    So I told her we'd still be friends
    Then we made our true love vow
    Wonder what she's doin' now
    Summer dreams ripped at the seams
    But, oh, those summer nights

    I was born and raised in Boston. As many know, New England is notorious for freezing temps and long, snowy winters. Which, I love. We'd stay in our warm homes for months on end during those winter months. But, when spring came and weather was warmer everyone would venture out. Spring turned to summer and for three solid months it was swimming in above ground pools, family cook outs, and sitting on the corner mailbox with all my friends. But mostly, I hear and see my father as he stood at the bbq grill flipping burgers and swaying to his favorite song. He'd start singing and then grab my mother and slow dance with her on the porch.

    Every time I hear Van Morrison's "Into The Mystic" it's bittersweet. The words:

    We were born before the wind
    Also younger than the sun
    Ere the bonnie boat was won
    As we sailed into the mystic

    Hark, now hear the sailors cry
    Smell the sea and feel the sky
    Let your soul and spirit fly into the mystic

    And when that foghorn blows
    I will be coming home
    And when the foghorn blows
    I want to hear it
    I don't have to fear it
    and I want to rock your gypsy soul
    Just like way back in the days of old
    And magnificently we will flow into the mystic

    I cry and smile at the same time. We had to move to Arizona to be closer to my maternal grandfather after my father passed away. And when this song plays I hear my father's voice. I see the love in his face for my mother. I can smell the beach, taste the breeze and I'm home again, back in Boston, when life was simple, void of cell phones, and xbox. Kids rode their bikes, climbed tree's, and would swing from tire's hanging from a thick rope from a sturdy tree. Those days of simplicity and peace seem gone today. I miss those days, and listening to this song brings it all back, even if it is just a memory.

    Blessings,
    MsLisaM

    In The Summer Time

    In the summertime when the weather is high
    You can stretch right up and touch the sky
    When the weather's fine
    You got women, you got women on your mind
    Have a drink, have a drive
    Go out and see what you can find

    If her daddy's rich, take her out for a meal
    If her daddy's poor, just do what you feel
    Speed along the lane
    Do a turn or return the twenty-five
    When the sun goes down
    You can make it, make it good and really fine

    We're not bad people, we're not dirty, we're not mean
    We love everybody, but we do as we please
    When the weather's fine
    We go fishing or go swimming in the sea
    We're always happy
    Life's for living, yeah, that's our philosophy

    Sing along with us, dee-dee dee-dee dee
    Da doo da-da da, yeah, we're hap-pap-py

    When the winter's here, yeah, it's party time
    Bring your bottle, wear your bright clothes
    'cause it will soon be summertime
    And we'll sing again
    We'll go driving or maybe we'll settle down
    If she's rich, if she's nice
    Bring your friends and we'll all go into town

    In the summertime when the weather is high
    You can stretch right up and touch the sky
    When the weather's fine

    My summer love inspiration song "Make Me Whole" by
    Amel Larrieux. I chose these lyrics because they are my heart's song to the love of my life. Every time I look at him this is how I've felt. Amel was able to put into words what I've been feeling for the last 10 years.

    Darling I want you to listen
    I stayed up all night, so I could get this thing right
    And I don't think there's anything missing
    Cause a person like you, made it easy to do
    I've waited for so long, to sing to you this song

    Cause your eyes are the windows to heaven
    Your smile could heal a million souls
    Your love completes my existence
    You're the other half that makes me whole
    You're the only other half that makes me whole

    I think the angels are your brothers
    They told you about me, said you're just what she needs
    And I find myself thanking your mother
    For giving birth to a saint
    My spirit flies when I say your name
    If there's one thing that's true
    It's that I was born to love you

  • susan gunter said

    My song is To Know You is To Love You. I have loved a man for 3 years who sends signals but doesn't do anything about it and it is killing me inside. Seeing him smile does make my life worth while. I pray sometime he will not be blind any more because as hard as I try I can not let go.

    The song that inspires me for summer is Lonely Old Night by John Cougar-Mellencamp. It reminds me of the evenings when I was in my 20's. I used to sit outside with my then boyfriend, on the back of his truck after our date listening to this song. I remember the excitement I felt sitting next to this guy and listening to one of our favorite songs with the warm summer wind blowing through my hair and rustling the leaves of the nearby field of corn. The sky was clear, the stars were bright and the moon was glowing brightly. This song always reminds me of those carefree summer nights long ago.

    "Its a lonely old night can I put my arms around you. Its a lonely old night, custom made for two lonely lovers like me and you."

    Although this summer love was for a season, this was one of my first loves and the song takes me fondly back when I hear it.

  • Mary Lane said

    You're the Inspiration by Chicago:
    This was one of the first songs that was sung when we first started dating 32 years ago. We have been married for almost 31 years and I still love it when he sings it to me even though he can't sing very well.
    You know our love was meant to be
    The kind of love that lasts forever
    And I want you here with me
    From tonight until the end of time

    You should know,
    Everywhere I go
    Always on my mind,
    In my heart
    In my soul

    Baby

    [Chorus:]
    You're the meaning in my life
    You're the inspiration
    You bring feeling to my life
    You're the inspiration
    Wanna have you near me
    I wanna have you hear me sayin'
    No one needs you more than I need you

    And I know, yes I know that it's plain to see
    We're so in love when we're together
    Now I know that I need you here with me
    From tonight until the end of time

    You should know,
    Everywhere I go
    Always on my mind,
    You're in my heart
    In my soul

    I have chosen the song "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri for the Summer Lovin' Lyrics Contest. This song inspires me on a multitude of levels....I was in a marriage for 26 years, at least 21 of those years were overshadowed with abuse -- both verbal and emotional. As you can imagine, my world became pretty dark, pretty fast.

    A Thousand Years reminds me of my best friend, who helped me through this dark period in my life. If it wasn't for him, I don't think I'd be here to tell my story. He basically told me to "get my head out of my ass", or he would walk away from me -- because he couldn't watch me suffer anymore. Apparently, I didn't pull my head out fast enough, and he left my life for almost 2 1/2 years. Those were the darkest of days for me.....and if it wasn't for my trusted Advisers on Keen, I don't think I would have been able to see the light at the end of this tunnel, or believe that my best friend was ever going to return.

    They assured me he would -- and for the most part, were pretty consistent with all the events that followed. They told me that we had shared many previous lives together and he was always my "protector"....His overwhelming need to protect & care for me has carried over into this lifetime.....despite various obstacles of age, time or distance. I have always known that our Souls have been bonded together -- and just like the song.....I am certain we've loved each other for a thousand years & will for a thousand more. This man saved my life <3

    Lyrics to A Thousand Years:

    Heart beats fast
    Colors and promises
    How to be brave
    How can I love when I'm afraid to fall
    But watching you stand alone
    All of my doubt, suddenly goes away somehow

    One step closer

    I have died everyday, waiting for you
    Darling, don't be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years
    I'll love you for a thousand more

    Time stands still
    Beauty in all she is
    I will be brave
    I will not let anything, take away
    What's standing in front of me
    Every breath, every hour has come to this

    One step closer

    I have died everyday, waiting for you
    Darling, don't be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years
    I'll love you for a thousand more

    And all along I believed, I would find you
    Time has brought your heart to me, I have loved you for a thousand years
    I'll love you for a thousand more

    One step closer
    One step closer

    I have died everyday, waiting for you
    Darling, don't be afraid, I have loved you for a thousand years
    I'll love you for a thousand more

    And all along I believed, I would find you
    Time has brought your heart to me, I have loved you for a thousand years
    I'll love you for a thousand more

    For me, "Never Thought That I Could Love-Dan Hill" and funny thing, I do. My love life was always disappointing. And one day I prayed, God, could you send my real man? Next day, my fb had a message, Hi, my name is Dan. We began chatting. A few days later, I said, God if he is the one, he will say, I am the "real man" for you. And poof, he did! My heart couldn't believe it! That's why this song is now Our song....
    Can I touch you?
    I can't believe that you are real
    How did I ever find you?
    You are the dream that saved my life
    You are the reason I survived
    Baby...

    I never thought that I could love
    Someone as much as I love you
    I know it's crazy but it's true
    I never thought that I could need
    Someone as much as I need you
    I Love You...

    Can I hold you?
    Girl your smile lights up the sky
    You are too beautiful for the human eye
    You are the dream that never dies
    You are the fire that burns inside
    Baby...

    I never thought that I could love
    Someone as much as I love you
    I know it's crazy but it's true
    I never thought that I could need
    Someone as much as I need you
    I Love You...

    You are the sunshine in the sky
    You are the sparkle in my eyes

    I never thought that I could love
    Someone as much as I need you
    I know it's crazy but it's true
    I know it's true
    I never thought that I could need
    Someone as much as I need you
    I LOVE YOU
    Yes, Miracles do happen,

    My summer nights song is"come away with me" by Norah Jones. Last summer I met my sweet prince, although he is younger than I, he is extremely mature. When I listen to this song I always want him and I to go on a romantic adventure, but we never have time. The lyrics of the song goes like this :

    Come away with me in the night
    come away with me
    and I will right you a song

    come away with me on a bus
    were they can't tempt us
    with their lies

    I want to walk with you
    on a cloudy day
    in fields were the yellow grass grows
    knee-high
    so won't you try to come

    come away with and we''ll kiss
    on a mountain top
    come away with me
    and I'll never stop loving you

    I want to wake up with the rain
    falling on a tin-roof
    while I am safe there in your arms
    so all I ask of you
    come away with me in the night
    come away with me

    I really love this song that when I hear it and think of my love, tears of love roll down my face.

    My summer nights song is"come away with me" by Norah Jones. Last summer I met my sweet prince, although he is younger than I, he is extremely mature. When I listen to this song I always want him and I to go on a romantic adventure, but we never have time. The lyrics of the song goes like this :

    Come away with me in the night
    come away with me
    and I will right you a song

    come away with me on a bus
    were they can't tempt us
    with their lies

    I want to walk with you
    on a cloudy day
    in fields were the yellow grass grows
    knee-high
    so won't you try to come

    come away with and we''ll kiss
    on a mountain top
    come away with me
    and I'll never stop loving you

    I want to wake up with the rain
    falling on a tin-roof
    while I am safe there in your arms
    so all I ask of you
    come away with me in the night
    come away with me

    I really love this song that when I hear it and think of my love, tears of love roll down my face.

    "Summer Rain" is the song that reminds me of summer love. It describes being with his loved one and just enjoying her while the rain is flowing. But despite that it's not a distraction because they are it's just them being in the moment and being one. It describes how i feel when im with the man i love. Nothing else matters but us and all i feel is our energy. Perfect love song.





    Summer rain
    Whispers me to sleep
    And wakes me up again
    Sometimes I swear I hear her call my name
    To wash away the pain
    My summer rain
    In the middle of the night when I'm alone
    I feel her kisses on me even when she's gone
    Can't wait 'till she gets home

    I would have to say The Beach Boys song that names all the Carribean Islands. "Kokomo", . I'M from California and my husband and I would cruise the Pacific Coast highway and have bomb fires at night during summer time and play The Beach Boys music. Pretty romantic in my book.

    The song that inspire me is

    How do I,
    Get through one night without you?
    If I had to live without you,
    What kind of life would that be?
    Oh, I...
    I need you in my arms, need you to hold,
    You're my world, my heart, my soul,
    If you ever leave,
    Baby you would take away everything good in my life,
    And tell me now
    How do I live without you?
    I want to know,
    How do I breathe without you?
    If you ever go,
    How do I ever, ever survive?
    How do I, how do I, oh how do I live?
    Without you,
    There'd be no sun in my sky,
    There would be no love in my life,
    There'd be no world left for me.
    And I,
    Baby I don't know what I would do,
    I'd be lost if I lost you,
    If you ever leave,
    Baby you would take away everything real in my life,
    And tell me now,
    How do I live without you?
    I want to know,
    How do I breathe without you?
    If you ever go,
    How do I ever, ever survive?
    How do I, how do I, oh how do I live?
    Please tell me baby,
    How do I go on?
    If you ever leave,
    Baby you would take away everything,
    I need you with me,
    Baby don't you know that you're everything,
    Good in my life?
    And tell me now,
    How do I live without you,
    I want to know,
    How do I breathe without you?
    If you ever go,
    How do I ever, ever survive?
    How do I, how do I, oh how do I live?
    How do I live without you?
    How do I live without you baby?

    Spring love come back to me
    I need you and I want you baby
    Spring love come back to me
    I need you and I want you baby
    I can remember the first time we ever met
    The sun was shining, love was gleaming in the air
    You caught my eye and the next thing that I knew
    I was in love, I was so in love with you


    This song is by Stevie B
    It reminds me of when I met my sons father.
    He passed away a few years ago before my son was born and this song always reminds me of him.

    The song that inspires my summer loving days is "Marzipan" by Zo & Eric Roberson. I have a friend who I love deeply and romanticly. Timming just doesn't seem to be on our side but we know how much we love one another. He has always been in my heart since the day we met over 16 years ago. You know it's true love when neither of us just can't seem to forget each other. No matter how much time passes. The lyrics to "Marzipan" coincides with our feelings about each other. It's very difficult to love someone so deeply and not get to be near them often. We don't know when we will get to have that moment again. Time together is sweet and special just like marzipan, by the way which is a sweet paste with almonds sugar.. Used on cakes.

    Lyrics

    To know you is to need you
    To write you and read you
    To see you is to want you
    To somehow confront you
    But I know the dangers
    of having what my heart beats so much of
    I know the dangers of love

    My sweet marzipan
    You come as fast as you can
    Of love's sweet as candy, why waste it?
    You might not taste it again

    To know you is to fear you
    I've got to be near you
    You shook me, and saved me
    With love that you gave me
    You gave me a reason
    To get up in the morning
    You gave me a reason to smile

    This song has gotten be through my recent heartbreak. I imagine this is how I'm going to feel with my future love
    Truth by Gwen Stefani
    Oh, it's unexplainable and it's so weird
    Whoa, it's so strange, confusing and I'm so scared
    But maybe I deserve this boy after all that I've been through.
    How can all of this be true? Swear
    Thank you for saving me I can't believe it
    Thank you
    So this is what the truth feels like
    This is more of what I had in mind.
    Yeah this is what the truth feels like and I'm feeling it, I'm feeling it

    My most favorite summer love song is 'Twisted' by Stevie Nicks. "You take it to the limit when the winds come up. Crazy men crazy women crying out for love. You'd like to save her, but you just can't give it up... rather be wrapped up in the arms of a storm. And the sun goes down... filling the air with colors..." It was featured in the movie 'Twister' and reminds me of two very different people with one common passion which binds them together. Kinda echoes my life a bit! Much thanks for the opportunity to enter this contest.

    The song that inspires me most about summer love is "Beautiful World" by Kem. This song not only speaks of love in a relationship, it speaks of global love. Everytime I hear it, I think of the special person who actually introduced this song to me. It has a smooth groove and the lyrics are very touching.

    What ever will be,
    It will be
    Won't let the weight of this world
    Bury me
    We all want a place
    In the sun
    Come whatever, what may
    It is done.
    Will you walk out on water
    Will you breathe on heaven's door
    Will you leave a path to follow
    A beautiful world
    .....heeee.....
    A beautiful world
    .....heeee...
    You who who
    Come suffer with me,
    I'm your friend
    There's a river of love
    At your hands
    You who who
    Take your troubles and hurt
    To the sea
    Shine your light on the world
    And be free
    Will you walk out on water
    Will you breathe on heaven's door
    Will you lead a path to follow
    Or will you leave a path to war
    Only faith can ease your burden
    Only love can heal the hurt
    Let your peace fall on the earth
    A beautiful world
    Eehh
    It's a beautiful world
    Get it!
    It's a beautiful world
    Yeah

    "My love...
    There's only you in my life
    The only thing that's bright
    My first love...
    You're every breath that I take
    You're every step I make
    And I, I want to share
    All my love with you
    No one else will do...

    And your eyes...
    They tell me how much you care
    Oh yes,you will always be
    My endless love

    Two hearts, two hearts that beat as one
    Our lives have just begun
    Forever...
    I'll hold you close in my arms
    I can't resist your charms

    And love,
    I'll be a fool for you, I'm sure
    You know I don't mind

    'Cause you,
    You mean the world to me
    I know...I found in you...
    My endless love

    And yes...
    You'll be the only one
    'Cause no one can deny
    This love I have inside
    And I'll give it all to you
    My love, my love, my love...
    My endless love..."

    My favourite love song is 'Endless Love' by Lionel Ritchie and Diana Ross (or Mariah Carey and Luther Vandross).

    This song is meaningful to me because the lyrics conspire pure love accompanied by a melody that enforces a genuine romantic connection to last many lifetimes.

    Set a scene if you may; a sandy white beach with palm trees swaying in the gentle breeze. The warmth of the Summer air falling gently on your skin with the sound of waves quietly breaking on the shoreline. By day, the sun shines brightly in the sky without a cloud to be seen. By night, the sky is lit up with a brilliant blanket of stars and a harvest orange moon. You are with the one person that you are fully committed to, body, mind and soul, and this song is playing in the background...

    SURELY, THIS IS THE ULTIMATE "SPIRIT OF SUMMER LOVE"....

    "She's Always In My Hair" by Prince.

    Lyrics are as follows...

    "Whenever I feel like givin' up
    Whenever my sunshine turns to rain
    Whenever my hopes and dreams
    Are aimed in the wrong direction
    She's always there
    Tellin' me how much she cares
    She's always in my hair

    She's always in my hair
    My hair

    Whenever I feel like not to great at all
    Whenever I'm all alone
    And even if I hit the wrong notes
    She's always in my boat, she's always there
    Tellin' me how much she cares
    She's always in my hair

    She's always in my hair
    My hair

    Maybe I'll marry her (maybe I'll marry her)
    Maybe I won't (maybe I won't)
    Maybe I will not (maybe I will not)
    Lemme tell ya (even if I was a gigolo)
    If I was a gigolo all my life (all my life)
    She'd still be there (she'd still be there)
    Tellin' me just how much she really cares (she cares)"

    I love this song, because this man loves this woman and APPRECIATES her. She's stuck to him and his psyche like glue. (That has not always been the case for me.) She is his sunshine and letting the world know. This should always be the case...in every relationship. It is the epitome of summer romance!

    Magic is the only word I can use to describe what Russ does to me and how I feel about him. With the warmth of the summer wind so to comes the feelings that just won't go away and won't let me forget the way I feel. A few years ago I heard a song by singer Roberta Flack called "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" and its what plays in my mind all the time during the heat of these summer days.

    The first time ever I saw your face
    I thought the sun rose in your eyes
    And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
    To the dark and the endless skies my love
    To the dark and the endless skies

    The first time ever I kissed your mouth
    I felt the earth move in my hand
    Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
    That was there at my command my love
    That was there at my command my love

    And the first time ever I lay with you
    I felt your heart so close to mine
    And I knew our joy would fill the earth
    And last 'till the end of time my love
    And it would last 'till the end of time

    The first time ever I saw your face
    Your face, your face

    It became more meaningful when Russ and I had to overcome a lot of obstacles to even be together. To all the lovers out there I wish you happiness, even if its for a short time because loving and being loved is better than any drug you can take. Nothing compares to it.

    My favorite love song is from Aladdin "A Whole New World". Every time I hear this song it reminds of a summer night back in 2001 when I was on the beach with a guy that I liked. He knew this song was one of my favorite love songs and he played it while we were lying on the beach staring up at the sky. It was a full moon and there were light clouds passing over us. It was such a beautiful summer night. The sky reminded me of the part in the Disney movie of "Aladdin" when the song played when Aladdin and Princess Jasmine were on the carpet ride. It was a night and a sight I will never forget.

    ______________________________________

    "A Whole New World" - Aladdin

    I can show you the world
    Shining, shimmering, splendid
    Tell me, princess, now when did
    You last let your heart decide?

    I can open your eyes
    Take you wonder by wonder
    Over sideways and under
    On a magic carpet ride

    A whole new world
    A new fantastic point of view
    No one to tell us "No"
    Or where to go
    Or say we're only dreaming

    A whole new world
    A dazzling place I never knew
    But now from way up here
    It's crystal clear
    that now I'm in a whole new world with you

    Unbelievable sights
    Indescribable feeling
    Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
    Through an endless diamond sky

    A whole new world
    Don't you dare close your eyes
    A hundred thousand things to see
    Hold your breath—it gets better
    I'm like a shooting star
    I've come so far
    I can't go back to where I used to be

    A whole new world
    With new horizons to pursue
    I'll chase them anywhere
    There's time to spare
    Let me share this whole new world with you

    A whole new world

    (A whole new world)
    A new fantastic point of view
    No one to tell us "No"
    Or where to go
    Or say we're only dreaming

    A whole new world
    Every turn a surprise
    With new horizons to pursue
    Every moment, red letter
    I'll chase them anywhere
    There's time to spare
    I'll chase them anywhere
    There's time to spare
    Let me share this whole new world with you

    A whole new world
    A whole new world
    That's where we'll be
    That's where we'll be
    A thrilling chase
    A wondrous place
    For you and me

    Cherish

    Kool & The Gang


    Let's take a walk together near the ocean shore
    Hand in hand you and I
    Let's cherish every moment we have been given
    The time is passing by

    I often pray before I lay down
    By your side
    If you receive your calling before I awake
    Could I make it through the night

    Cherish the love we have, we should cherish the life we live
    Cherish the love, cherish the life, cherish the love
    Cherish the love we have, for as long as we both shall live
    Cherish the love, cherish the life, cherish the love

    The world is always changing, nothing stays the same
    But love will stand the test of time
    The next life that we live in remains to be seen
    Will you be by my side

    I often pray before I lay down
    By your side
    And if you receive your calling before I awake
    Could I make it through the night

    Cherish the love we have, we should cherish the life we live
    Cherish the love, cherish the life, cherish the love
    Cherish the love we have, for as long as we both shall live
    Cherish the love, cherish the life, cherish the love

    My favorite romantic love song that inspires me is actually an original song by my band, the lyrics I wrote and I feel the song is fitting for summer love. It is called "Escape" by The Band Famous (TBF) and the lyrics:

    "Talk about the weather,
    Or whatever you like.
    But we should get together
    And escape with the knife.
    And escape with the night.
    I wanna take you for a ride.
    I wanna take you for a ride.

    Let's go for a swim.

    Undress my mind
    Caress my thoughts.
    Get inside, show me what it feels like.
    Show me what it feels like.

    Talk about the weather
    Or whatever you like.
    But we should get together
    And escape with the night.
    Let's escape with the night.

    Undress my mind."

    It conveys that spontaneous impulse many young lovers feel to run off together or take a spontaneous trip away somewhere - to do anything with that special someone, the apple of their eye.
    We could be spending time talking about anything, so long as we are together, and so long as you can undress my mind and caress my thoughts, meaning to feel a love that stirs you on an intellectual, spiritual level, and not merely the physical.

    A long and lasting love, not many people find it....my favorite love song needed to learn in the piano I didn't have time yet but I learned La vie en rose and it was good for me I will try learning soon.

  • Santito said

    Time of Your LIfe by Paul Anka....

    Good morning yesterday, you wake up and time has slipped away and suddently it's hard to find the memories you left behind....

    Remember, do you remember the laughter and the tear and the shadow of yester years. The good time ane the sad times.

    The reason I like this song even though I did not appreciate in my early days is because as you see people transitioning, all you have is the precious moments and times spent together.

    My Mom passed away October 2012 and now I am going to Mexico July 4 just to see my aunt that is very ill and making time to go visit her will the memories I carry in my heart before she transitions on.

    Glad I took my Mom places and now I will have those precious memories, plus knowing that she felt safe and the trip was for her to make her happy for all she did for me.

    These memories become unforgettable,recious and priceless!!!

    Thanks,

    The song i choose for my Summer Lovin theme is by the wonderful, talented and soul touching music making Prince! The name of the song is "Call My Name". Lyrics: I just can't stop writing songs about you, i love you so much, i just can't wait to get my arms around you to feel your touch, if i don't see you real soon baby girl i might go insane, i know it's only been 3 hours but i love it when you call my name....this song is so special to me because it reminds me of a special person in my life. This was the song i heard when i first realized i was deeply in love with my first love. It was 9 years ago and i was listening to the radio cleaning my home and this song came on and i stopped what i was doing and listened to the songs because the lyrics to the songs were so catchy to my ears, my heart and my soul. As i was listening to the song i got so very emotional. I cried while listening because the song had spoke to heart. When the song went off i called my boyfriend on his lunch break and told him i had a corny story to tell him lol, i told him don't laugh at me for being overly emotional ( he always used to tease me in the cutest way for being so emotional). So i told him about the lyrics to the song i heard on the radio and how the song was instantly brought him to my mind. I got emotional just teling him about the song. He told me that he loved me and it was ok to be emotional about my love for him. He also told me that he knew exactly the song i was talking about because they had the radio on at work and he'd heard the song and thought of me as well. What a special moment for us at that time. We both were thinking of each other listening to a beautiful love song. At that moment i knew he was the love of my life. That is now our song for one another. I still love him to this very day and he loves me too. We now have two beautiful boys 6yrs and 5 months. Thank you so much for hearing my Summer Lovin Story 😊

  • Bill said

    My song of choice is "ive had the time of my life" by Jennifer Warmes and Bill Medley Dirty dancing soundtrack. Just listen to the chorus and see how much it just grabs you with that melody.. They sang that song with so much passion and feeling that song can reach generations. I dont care how old you are or how young you are that song is just moving. It takes me back to high school when we are so innocent about love and no care in the world.

    Now I've had the time of my life
    No I never felt like this before
    Yes I swear it's the truth
    and I owe it all to you

    'Cause I've had the time of my life
    and I owe it all to you

    I've been waiting for so long
    Now I've finally found someone
    To stand by me

    We saw the writing on the wall
    As we felt this magical fantasy

    Now with passion in our eyes
    There's no way we could disguise it secretly
    So we take each other's hand
    'Cause we seem to understand the urgency

    Just remember
    You're the one thing
    I can't get enough of
    So I'll tell you something

    This could be love because

    I've had the time of my life
    No I never felt this way before
    Yes I swear it's the truth
    and I owe it all to you

    With my body and soul
    I want you more than you'll ever know

    So we'll just let it go
    Don't be

  • Aja said

    The song that inspires me is “Ready for Love” by India Arie. This song rang in my ear louder and louder after my first heartbreak at the peak of summer. I felt my heart shattering and I asked myself why couldn’t I experience love, did I not deserve to be held in love’s arms? I had always looked at love as an emotion and an experience that would “fix” me and complete me. I thought I was ready, I believed I was ready and as the words to this song coursed through my veins, the lyrics “Lately I've been thinking, maybe you're not ready for me Maybe you think I need to learn maturity” stuck to me like glue. In that moment, I had to decide the summer love I needed was to be in love with myself. I needed to love the woman that stared back at me every day in the mirror

    When the time comes and I will meet that special someone and when he asks me have I ever been in love I will tell him, Yes, and her name is Aja, a beautiful, educated woman with a kind heart.

    Lyrics
    I am ready for love
    Why are you hiding from me?
    I'd quickly give my freedom
    To be held in your captivity

    I am ready for love
    All of the joy and the pain
    And all the time that it takes
    Just to stay in your good grace

    Lately I've been thinking, maybe you're not ready for me
    Maybe you think I need to learn maturity
    They say watch what you ask for, 'cause you might receive
    But if you ask me tomorrow, I'll say the same thing

    I am ready for love
    Would you please lend me your ear?
    I promise I won't complain
    I just need you to acknowledge I am here

    If you give me half a chance, I'll prove this to you
    I will be patient, kind, faithful and true
    To a man who loves music, a man who loves art
    Respect's the spirit world and thinks with his heart

    I am ready for love
    If you'll take me in your hands
    I will learn what you teach
    And do the best that I can

    I am ready for love
    Here with a offering of
    My voice, my eyes, my soul, my mind
    Tell me what is enough to prove I am ready for love
    I am ready

    After my advisor pointed me in the right direction for my next love affair, a man I'd known for 20 years but overlooked the entire time, I embarked on the most romantic relationship of my entire life. I never thought that my soulmate would have so much going for him in so many different ways. He's handsome, hard working, talented, tough yet sensitive and the most romantic man I have ever been with. We've been smitten ever since. He tells perfect strangers the story of our love affair and how he finally got the one that got away 20 years later - How he fell in love with me at first sight, literally from across a crowded room. Two weeks later when he ended up at the same venue as me again he had a friend in common of ours introduce us. We became friends but as it turned out we were star crossed and didn't hook up romantically until 20 years later. In the beginning of our courtship he used to set up play lists for our evening skype conversations. This is one of those songs that will always take me back to that time. We've been together 4 years now, thanks to my advisor on keen!

    As long as this world
    Keeps on spinnin' around
    I'll keep hangin' on to this love that I found
    I won't let go, cause I know
    I have something that is true
    And I will never ever quit loving you
    There will be days
    When you get down
    And you've got to find ways to keep your feet on the ground
    Oh but honey, please remember
    Even when I'm feelin' blue
    That I will never ever quit loving you
    And crazy times like these (oh woa woa woa)
    There's nothing like your love to put my soul at ease
    Cause every time you choose to come around
    This whole world seems to slow on down
    You just keep on huggin' and kissin'
    Oh and love me like you do
    And I will never ever quit loving you
    You just keep huggin' and kissin'
    Oh and love me like you do
    And I will never ever quit loving you
    And I will never ever quit loving you
    Never quit loving you
    Never quit loving you
    Never quit loving you

    Jill Barber - Never Quit Loving You Lyrics

  • Irene said

    My love song is from the group Westlife called "Everything little thing you do". This is one of our favorite songs because my husband would do anything to make me happy, be supportive, and be there for me no matter what. He helps me become a better and positive person who is always thankful to have him and other people in my life. He is selfless, cares for people and always treat others with respect. This song reminds me of all the great quality that he has. It is truly little things that make a person like my husband to have such a great soul & heart!

    Here is some of the lyrics:

    Its every little thing you do
    That makes me fall in love with you
    There isn't a way that I can show you
    Ever since I've come to know you
    It's every little thing you say
    That makes me wanna feel this way
    There's not a thing that I can point to
    'Cause it's every little thing you do

    Don't ask why, let's just feel what we feel
    'Cause sometimes
    It's the secret that keeps it alive
    But if you need a reason why
    It's every little thing you do
    That makes me fall in love with you
    There isn't a way that I can show you
    Ever since I've come to know you

    Cruise By Florida Georgia Line

    Baby you a song You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise

    Hey baby

    Yeah, when I first saw that bikini top on her She’s poppin’ right out of the South Georgia water Thought, oh, good lord, she had them long tanned legs Couldn’t help myself so I walked up and said

    Baby you a song You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise Down a back road blowin’ stop signs through the middle Every little farm town with you In this brand new Chevy with a lift kit It’d look a hell lot better with you up in it So baby you a song You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise

    She was sippin’ on southern and singin’ Marshall Tucker We were falling in love in the sweet heart of summer She hopped right up into the cab of my truck and said Fire it up, let’s go get this thing stuck

    Baby you a song You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise Down a back road blowin’ stop signs through the middle Every little farm town with you In this brand new Chevy with a lift kit It’d look a hell lot better with you up in it So baby you a song You make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise.

    This song just makes me smile. Country summer at its best. Kick off your flip flops and put your toes in the wind.

    The Ultimate Sizzling Summer Song is Chris Isaak's Wicked Game....
    As I lay on the long stretch of maui beach, tan, skin mixed with sand, ocean water, and oils from thee purest body oils hawaii has to offer...
    He came to me...young, eyes piercing blue, starring at me twirling the sand thru my fingers, hand propped under my chin..hair all mixed with salt water and sweeping my eyes and face...Andrew offered a plumeria flower for my hair...from that moment on, we were inseparable ...he came to me, as in the song wicked game....we made love in the hot maui sand, which was warm even at night...our bodies intertwined and we felt the energy of the island move thru us as we dug deeper into the sand crashing with waves touching our bodies. The most sensual summer on record. And Chris Isaak's song was playing one night as we drove to the beach to yet another love making session....And Andrew said, "What a wicked game you play, to make me feel this way...No one can save me but you..."
    Here are the lyrics to this most amazingly hot summer song with a video equally as hot...that , was Andrew and Me..

    Wicked Game...Chris Isaak

    The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
    It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
    I'd never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you
    And I'd never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

    No I don't want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
    No I don't want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
    With you
    With you (this girl is only gonna break your heart)

    What a wicked game you played to make me feel this way
    What a wicked thing to do to let me dream of you
    What a wicked thing to say you never felt this way
    What a wicked thing to do to make me dream of you

    And I don't want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
    No I don't want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
    With you

    The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
    It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
    I'd never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
    And I'd never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

    No I don't want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
    No I don't want to fall in love (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
    With you (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
    With you (this girl is only gonna break your heart)

    No I (this girl is only gonna break your heart)
    (This girl is only gonna break your heart)

    Nobody loves no one


    My true story of hot summer nights on maui

  • Karen said

    I sang this song, “You Go to My Head” for the first time at my best friend’s wedding in the summer of 2004. She was married on the beach in Honolulu. There was a gorgeous sunset that evening and the ocean breezes were stirring a bit as the tide began to roll in. It was so beautiful.

    Once the ceremony began, one of the groomsmen Charles, whom I had never met before, began staring at me. Every time I looked over at him, he was staring. Charles was really handsome and I couldn’t help staring back. During the reception, I was asked to sing a romantic song that people could dance to. The bride, Sandra, and I had always loved going to karaoke together so she knew I could sing fairly well. I chose this old standby because I had heard my mother sing this when I was a child and this song seemed to fit that particular moment with all of the champagne flowing. During the song, Charles just stood there and smiled at me. Here are some of the lyrics:

    You go to my head, and you linger like a haunting refrain
    And I find you spinning round in my brain, like the bubbles in a glass of champagne.
    You go to my head, like a sip of sparkling burgundy brew
    And I find the very mention of you
    Like the kicker in a julep or two

    The thrill of the thought that you might give a thought
    To my plea, casts a spell over me
    So, I say to myself get a hold of yourself
    Can't you see that it never can be?

    You go to my head
    With a smile that makes my temperature rise
    Like a summer with a thousand Julys
    You intoxicate my soul with your eyes
    Though I'm certain that this heart of mine
    Hasn't a ghost of a chance with this crazy romance
    You go to my head

    After the song, Charles came over and gave me a kiss on the cheek. We ended up talking all night on that beach. He was the sweetest guy I’d ever met. It was so painful the next day as we each boarded our separate planes to go home. We promised we’d stay in touch, but it wasn’t easy. He was deployed to Afghanistan two weeks later. We wrote, and skyped each other like maniacs for the next year until he finally got furloughed back to the states. When he came home, he asked me to marry him! We had a small but beautiful wedding on the shore of Lake Michigan. My friend, Sandra, attended and during the reception, guess what song she sang?

    I love this song for so many reasons. It takes me back to my childhood when my mother sat at the piano and played and sang the old standards. She had a stroke last fall and will never play the piano again, but when I hear this song I think about how she used to be, so young and vibrant. I’m so thankful for those memories. This song also helps me to relive the headiness of my first meeting with Charles and the excitement that I felt when I knew it was a mutual attraction. It was scary because I didn’t know how things would turn out for sure, but in the end it wasn’t just a “crazy romance” after all. It was the real deal. We’ve been married now for twelve years and he can still make my temperature rise!

    My song would be "Adore" by Prince. To me its one of the greatest love songs ever written. It's speaks to me of the type of love that I've always longed for. Desire and and admiration until the end of time. Below are some of the lyrics.

    Until the end of time
    I'll be there for you
    You own my heart and mind
    I truly adore you
    If God one day struck me blind
    Your beauty I'd still see
    Love is to weak to define
    Just what you mean to me

    My favorite summer love song is "Ring of Fire" written by June Carter Cash and Merle Kilgore. June fell so deeply in love with Johnny, the lyrics of the song speak volumes to that love and passion they shared until their death in 2003 .It reminds of the how I fell for my my fella one beautiful summer afternoon in 2012. I fell so deep, I could feel the fire burn. As a matter of fact, I still feel that burn every time I look in to his eyes. And thanks to the excellent guidance of my Keen advisor. Coach G, that fire burns brighter and hotter every year! We will be like Johnny and June! We will make it last a lifetime!


    Love is a burnin' thing and it makes a fiery ring
    Bound by wild desire, I fell in to a ring of fire

    I fell in to a burnin' ring of fire
    I went down, down, down, and the flams went higher
    And it burns, the ring of fire, the ring of fire

    The taste of love is sweet when hearts like ours meet
    I fell for you like a child
    Oh, but the fire went wild

    I fell in to a burnin' ring of fire
    I went down, down, down, and the flames went higher
    And it burns, the ring of fire, the ring of fire
    And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire, the ring of fire

    My love song I would pick that has tremendous meaning in my life and great summer time vibe due to its reggae like acoustics and even the version covered by 311 and Adele deem the same reggae like beats would have to be LOVE SONG, by THE CURE..

    "Lovesong"

    Whenever I'm alone with you
    You make me feel like I am home again
    Whenever I'm alone with you
    You make me feel like I am whole again

    Whenever I'm alone with you
    You make me feel like I am young again
    Whenever I'm alone with you
    You make me feel like I am fun again

    However far away
    I will always love you
    However long I stay
    I will always love you
    Whatever words I say
    I will always love you
    I will always love you

    Whenever I'm alone with you
    You make me feel like I am free again
    Whenever I'm alone with you
    You make me feel like I am clean again

    However far away
    I will always love you
    However long I stay
    I will always love you
    Whatever words I say
    I will always love you
    I will always love you

    wether you were a summer fling or a lifetime connection this song can go either way to be meaningful in your life. Ironically everytime I hear this song something great happens or its my spirit guides letting me know things are gonna be ok. Its been my magical song for signs in my love life for years now , literally since it was in 50 first dates the movie sound track the version 311 did made me fall in love with this special song all over again : )

    The song I choose for summer lovin' is Justin Timberlake's Mirror. I met my ex 3 years ago in May. He had a past and I chose not to judge. Over the next year and a half we went through a lot. He was my twin flame, what burned me up inside he lit ablaze and what I lit up in him helped paved the way to healing...a reflection of light through the pain. Love is light, light is love. This song was popular on the radio at the time and we'd sing it to each other while driving in the car. Today, I still love him. Here are some of the lyrics.

    "Mirrors"

    Aren't you somethin' to admire?
    'Cause your shine is somethin' like a mirror
    And I can't help but notice
    You reflect in this heart of mine
    If you ever feel alone and
    The glare makes me hard to find
    Just know that I'm always parallel on the other side

    'Cause with your hand in my hand and a pocket full of soul
    I can tell you there's no place we couldn't go
    Just put your hand on the glass
    I'll be tryin' to pull you through
    You just gotta be strong

    'Cause I don't wanna lose you now
    I'm lookin' right at the other half of me
    The vacancy that sat in my heart
    Is a space that now you hold
    Show me how to fight for now
    And I'll tell you, baby, it was easy
    Comin' back here to you once I figured it out
    You were right here all along

    It's like you're my mirror
    My mirror staring back at me
    I couldn't get any bigger
    With anyone else beside of me
    And now it's clear as this promise
    That we're making two reflections into one
    'Cause it's like you're my mirror
    My mirror staring back at me, staring back at me

    Aren't you somethin', an original
    'Cause it doesn't seem merely assembled
    And I can't help but stare, 'cause
    I see truth somewhere in your eyes
    I can't ever change without you
    You reflect me, I love that about you
    And if I could, I would look at us all the time

  • Lori said


    Love walked right in and drove the shadows away
    Love walked right in and brought my sunniest day
    One magic moment and my heart seemed to know that love said hello
    Though not a word was spoken

    One look, and I forgot the gloom of the past
    One look and I had found my future at last
    One look and I had found a world completely new
    When love walked in with you

    One magic moment and my heart seemed to know that love said hello
    Though not a word was spoken

    One look and I had found a world completely new
    When love walked in with you

    This song is very romantic and it can bring you back to a time when you met that special person for the first time.The singer creates this picture for us and everyone who has been in love can relate to it .

    Summer Of '69
    By Bryan Adams

    I got my first real six-string
    Bought it at the five-and-dime
    Played it till my fingers bled
    It was the summer of '69
    Me and some guys from school
    Had a band and we tried real hard
    Jimmy quit and Jody got married
    I should've known we'd never get far
    Oh when I look back now
    That summer seemed to last forever
    And if I had the choice
    Ya I'd always want to be there
    Those were the best days of my life
    Ain't no use in complainin'
    When you got a job to do
    Spent my evening's down at the drive-in
    And that's when I met you
    Standin' on your mama's porch
    You told me that you'd wait forever
    Oh and when you held my hand
    I knew that it was now or never
    Those were the best days of my life
    Back in the summer of '69
    Man we were killin' time
    We were young and restless
    We needed to unwind
    I guess nothin' can last forever, forever, no
    And now the times are changin'
    Look at everything that's come and gone
    Sometimes when I play that old six-string
    I think about ya wonder what went wrong
    Standin' on your mama's porch
    You told me it would last forever
    Oh the way you held my hand
    I knew that it was now or never
    Those were the best days of my life
    Back in the summer of '69


    i like the simplicity of this song -- just a moment in time. romantic love as well as spiritual love being present.....life is precious!

    xoxo, Laura

    thank you shanti66 ext 01728 for always being there for me

    This is a little song/poem my grandmother wrote years ago, probably back in 58, she left me her hand written note just before she passed on, back in the early 80's this has always touched my heart, it speaks for itself, we never loose the ones we love.
    I cannot say and I will not say that she is dead...,she is just away.
    With a cheery smile and a wave of the hand She has wandered into an unknown land
    And left us dreaming how very fair it needs must be since she lingers there.
    And you o you who the wildest yearn for the old time step and the glad return.
    Think of her faring on as dear. In the love of there, as the love of here.
    Think of her still as the same I say, she is not dead,...she is just away.

    My summer love song is "You" by Jesse Powell

    I finally found the words to say, I'm gonna make a change in my life starting here today. I surrender all my love, I never thought I could. I'm giving all my love away and there's only one reason that I would and Baby its youuuuuuuu

    the way you walk, the way you talk, the way you say my name the way you smile, the way you soothe me. I just wanna be yours from this day forward.

    Lets call this day our Anniversary, the day I put my heart in your hands and said its your to keep and from this moment on say that you are mines, and when I am alone with you there is one thing on my mind and baby its you.

    This song is very special to me, because it is when I met the love of my life, when I thought all was lost when I went through my divorce.. This guy came into my life gave me hope and made me feel so special and loved and every time we hear this song it like we fall in love all over again, this song will be our wedding song. Because he did tell me that his heart is in my hands and that he trust me with his life.
