Kiss me each morning for a million years.
Hold me each evening at your side.

Then if it don't work out,
Then if it don't work out,
Then you can tell me goodbye.

Sweeten my coffee with a morning kiss.
Soften my dreams with your sighs.
Tell me you'll love me for a million years.
Then if it don't work out,
Then if it don't work out,
Then you can tell me goodbye.

If you must go, oh, no, I won't grieve,
If you wait a lifetime before you leave.

If you must go, mmmmm, I won't tell you no,
Just so that we can say we tried.
Tell me you'll love me for a million years.
Then if it don't work out.
Then if it don't work out.
Then you can tell me goodbye.

Heart "What About Love?" #PopRock #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #StopHiding #ILovU

Introduction:

I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.” 

― Marilyn Monroe


My music selection tonight is an amazing song title "What About Love"(2) and it is sung by the talented American rock group Heart. Their genre is hard rock and pop rock. This song is the second track on their eighth studio album titled Heart release in 1985. The video was uploaded by HEART on YouTube on Apr 1, 2010. 

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"What About Love?"(3)

I've been lonely
I've been waiting for you
I'm pretending and that's all I can do
The love I'm sending
Ain't making it through to your heart
You've been hiding, never letting it show
Always trying to keep it under control
You got it down and you're well
On the way to the top
But there's something that you forgot

What about love
Don't you want someone to care about you
What about love
Don't let it slip away
What about love
I only want to share it with you
You might need it someday

I can't tell you what you're feeling inside
I can't sell you what you don't want to buy
Something's missing and you got to
Look back on your life
You know something here just ain't right

What about love
Don't you want someone to care about you
What about love
Don't let it slip away
What about love
I only want to share it with you
What about love
Don't you want someone to care about you
What about love
Don't let it slip away
What about love
I only want to share it with you

I hope you like this selection and have a blessed evening or morning. Thank you for your continued support. Remember music is a language and these are my thoughts tonight. Don't let love slip away...

Peace and Love always
Diana Mary Sharpton

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"Parallel Line"(3)

You said "I love you" to me
And I don't know what that means
So I froze on my feet
People use it so carelessly
And I couldn't believe
That you would dive in so deep
And you said perfectly
Everything I've been feelin' about you

It's time to break the chains
That held me back from you

So come on and
Take a little bit of my
Heart tonight
No, I literally don't mind
Just please don't misplace it
Take a little bit of my
Heart tonight
No, baby be mine now
Baby be mine now
Maybe it's time we
Put our hearts in a parallel line

Well I was never the type
To put it all on the line
But I've been changing my mind
Since you opened my eyes
It was the way that the light
Picked you out of that night
Then you were right by my side
Put a soul in my body

And now it's time to close the space
Between the two of us

So come on and
Take a little bit of my
Heart tonight
No, I literally don't mind
Just please don't misplace it
Take a little bit of my
Heart tonight
No, baby be mine now
Baby be mine now
Maybe it's time we
Put our hearts in a parallel line

Oh baby it's time
Oh it's time

Take a little bit of my
Heart tonight
No, I literally don't mind
Just please don't misplace it
Take a little bit of my
Heart tonight
No, baby be mine now
Baby be mine now

Take a little bit of my
Heart tonight
No, I literally don't mind
Just please don't misplace it
Take a little bit of my
Heart tonight
No, baby be mine now
Baby be mine now
Maybe it's time we
Put our hearts in a parallel line
Put our hearts in a parallel line
Put our hearts in a parallel line


I hope you like this selection and have a blessed evening or morning. Thank you for your continued support. Remember music is a language and these are my thoughts tonight.

Chris Stapleton “Millionaire” #MusicVideo #BlueEyed #Soul #DianaMarySharpton #URTheLovOfMyLife


Introduction:

“A relationship that is truly genuine does not keep changing its colors. Real gold never rusts. If a relationship is really solid and golden, it will be unbreakable. Not even Time can destroy its shine.” 
― Suzy Kassem,

This song is the 1st track from his  third studio album titled “From A Room: Volume 2 ”. The album release on December 1, 2017 and has debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200.

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"Millionaire" (3)

(originally by Solomon Burke)

They say love is more precious than gold

It can't be bought, and it can't be sold
I've got love enough to spare
That makes me a millionaire

I got a woman with eyes that shine
Down deep as a diamond mine
She's my treasure, so very rare
She's made me a millionaire

When we ride around, ride around this old town
In my beat up car, with the windows down
People look at her, then they look at me
They say that boy, he's sure living in luxury, sweet luxury

Because love is more precious than gold
It can't be bought, no, never could be sold
I've got love, enough to share
That makes me a millionaire

When her kisses fall from everywhere
Like riches on a millionaire
When my pockets are empty and my cupboard is bare
I still feel like a millionaire

Because love is more precious than gold
It can't be bought, no, and it can't be sold
I've got love, enough to spare
That makes me a millionaire

I hope you like this selection as much as I do and have a blessed evening or morning. Thank you for your continued support. Remember music is a language and these are my thoughts tonight.


Peace and Love always
Diana Mary Sharpton
Oh yes Daddy!

Oh yes Daddy! I think your taste is warm like a handle held glass of brandy and smooth like a chilled cup of "le Creme". Damn I want some more.

In the daring night

I see Orion and The Hunters
Standing by the light of the moon

And the heart and the soul
As we look up in awe and wonder at the heavens
Oh and we go with the Lord of the Dance
With the Lord of the Dance, the Lord of the Dance
In the daring night

Shining bright
Oh baby squeeze me don't leave me in the daring night
In the firmament we move, we move and we live
And we have our being
Squeeze me don't leave, leave me in the daring night

In the firmament we move and galactic swirl
And we live and we breathe and have our being
Baby in the daring light
Darling squeeze me squeeze me
Don't ever leave me in the daring night
When all the stars are shining bright
And don't let go, and don't let go
Don't let go don't let go in the daring night
And we move and we move, and we move and we move
Baby don't let go in the daring night

In the daring night when all the stars are
Shining bright
Baby squeeze me don't leave me in the daring night
Capture it all oh with the Lord of the Dance
Oh with the Lord of the Dance in the daring night
With the Lord of the Dance in the daring night
With the lord of the dance and the great Goddess
Of the eternal wisdom
Standing by the light of the moon in the daring night

And the bodies move and we sweat
And have our being
Don't leave me in the daring night

Barry White "I've Got So Much to Give #Lifetime #Love #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #ComeHere

Introduction:


“What makes you so special?
Well, if you've got a spare lifetime I'd like to tell you.” 


― Anthony T. Hincks

My kids have given me notice that they will be moving out in May. I guess this change needs to be embraced for the opportunities it will bring.

I continue to be optimistic even those times I am drowning in pessimism.... Lord help us all. 

This weekend brings on a need for a soothing groove. So the brilliant styling of Barry White is a natural pick. So here we go. The song is titled “I've Got So Much To Give" (2) and this with a glass of red wine, a mood that won't quite fits the bill. 


I've Got So Much to Give is the 4th track on Barry Whites' studio albumn titled I've Got So Much To Give" and release in 1973. I am loving this powerful soulful song.

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"I've Got So Much To Give" (3)

Don't do that
Baby, please don't do that
What are you cryin' for ?
Is it because you're sad, or mad
Or nothing's gonna go wrong ?

Sometimes we feel inside of us that
That everythin' we have is, only here for today
But every now and then two people get lucky
And find that certain thing that makes them wanna
Just keep it, just keep it that way

I don't want you to feel that
That you have to go through
These changes when
Knowin' no way

I know that, our love is different
Our lives will be different
Trust me baby, trust me

Now, that I'm here, no more tears
Come here, come here
And you won't find, things
That broke your heart
And blew your mind
Not here, no, not here

And my, oh, my
Girl, can't you see, can't you see that I
I've got so much to give to you, my dear
It's gonna take a lifetime, it's gonna take years

To you my dear I've got so much to give
It's gonna take my lifetime
It's gonna take years and years
And years and years

And I'll fill you in your hopes and dreams
Believe me, girl, you got everything
Right here, right here
No one could offer you more
Than the love I have for you in store
It's here, oh, oh, yeah

And my, oh, my
Honey, can't you see, can't you see that I
I've got so much to give to you my dear
It's gonna take a lifetime, it's gonna take years

To you my dear I've got so much to give
It's gonna take my lifetime
It's gonna take years and years
And years and years

Believe me, baby
We've found that certain thing
That certain feeling
That lets two people
Express themselves, how they feel
Let your love flow inside of you
Don't be afraid, don't be afraid, baby

I hope you like this selection as much as I do and have a blessed evening or morning. Thank you for your continued support. Remember music is a language and these are my thoughts tonight.

Peace and Love always
Diana Mary Sharpton


Come here my love....

You Turned My Whole World Around by Barry White #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #URMyWorld

Introduction:

I wake in the morning thinking about you, and lay down at night with the same beautiful thought on my mind. You are my world.”

-Unknown

Is love pointless? I don’t know the answer to this question for myself or for anyone. Being in-love is so different from loving someone. You love a person by choice however being “In-Love” is an event that just happens. At least this is my personal perspective and to codify this point of view, I am going to include an article below about the differences between loving someone and being in-love with someone. I still feel this way.. 

So what is my point? Well this evening, I heard a brilliant classic song that brought this emotion back into the front view for me and I wanted to share the song, the words and the emotion I felt when listening to it. The song is titled “You Turned My Whole World Around" by 
Barry White and it is all about being “In-Love”. 

I have listed the lyrics below for your viewing. Then I ask have you ever been “In-Love”? If you have and still are you will understand where I am coming from. I am still very much “In-Love” but then that’s not a choice, is it? 

This song is considered a soul  funk genre and is the 5th track on Barry White self-produced albumn titled "Sings for Someone You Love". The albumn was released in 1977. Enjoy!

You Turned My Whole World Around (3)

You know
Everybody’s talking bout
About how different I am
I guess they can notice
The changes
The way I walk
They way I talk
Believe it or not baby
I can feel it here inside of me
(Singing begins)
You turn my whole world, around
Yes Darling, it’s true love I’ve found
Never, have I ever met a girl like you
So warm, So tender
Completely New
You changed me, Rearranged Me
With new meaning in my life
No more sadness or madness
No more lonely nights
It’s over girl
It’s over my dear
Cause you’re here ooohh, you’re here
You turn my whole world, around
Oooh baby
It’s True Love I have found
You turn my whole world, around
And darling its True Love I’ve found
I’m giving and I’m living
My Life for you
Whenever, Whatever
You want I’ll doooo
Cause I’m crazy, bout you baby
You’ve fulfilled my life
No more sadness or madness
No more lonely nights
It’s over girl
It’s over my dear
Cause you’re here ooohh, oohh, you’re here
You turn my whole world, around
Oooh baby
It’s True Love I’ve found
You turn my whole world, Upside Down
Oooh baby
It’s True Love I’ve found
(Speaking)
All it took. Baby you were all that it took
To take a man from a world that was completely all blue
To turn me around and plant my feet on solid ground
(Singing begins again)
You turn my world around
Oooh baby
It’s True Love I’ve found
You turn my whole world, around
It’s True Love I’ve found
You turn my world around
As the music closes and fades
Well well well well
My my my my
Ooh oooh ohh
My my jmy
You you you
Well well well well
My whole world around

I hope you like this selection as much as I do and have a blessed evening or morning. Thank you for your continued support. Remember music is a language and these are my thoughts tonight.

Peace and Love always
Diana Mary Sharpton

Leo Sayer "When I Need Love" #MusicVideo #INeedU #DianaMarySharpton #Dreams #DancingInTheLivingRoom #Romance

Introduction:

Nothing makes you feel more naked than someone identifying a desire you never knew you possessed.” 

― Jeff Zentner

Needs

I need to act thoughtfully; not react in anger
I need security to lose the devil called fear
I need self-assurance; to build a sturdy platform for which to stand
I need faith to believe in my future which are my dreams
I need patience to know it's coming my way
I need loyalty to strengthen the cords of trust
I need trust to unlock the bolted door to my heart
I need passion to feel brilliantly alive
I need desire to inspire the color in my dreams
I need love from only one man
I need you!

Diana Mary Sharpton © 2018 all rights reserved


It was a very difficult first work week in 2018. I literally came home every evening and melted into bed. I am not complaining. Anytime you are free like I was over the "Winter Break" for days on end to do whatever I wanted to do with my time it is difficult to give this up and go back to work. I'm just saying; I made it and now I have a three-day weekend to recover. 


I am blessed to be alive, to be relatively healthy for my age, to have a job, to have a home, to have people in my life that love me and most of all to have a future full of dreams and desires to start out this fabulous new year 2018. I wish this for all those that are in my life circle and/or cross my path at one time or another. May you have a blessed, safe, and prosperous year.

The music video that I have selected this evening to accompany my poem is titled Leo Sayer - When I Need You"(2) and it was uploaded on YOUTUBE, Feb 28, 2013 by jasmine e. The song is the 4th track on Leo Sayer's 4th album titled "Endless Flight" released in 1976. A singer-songwriter, Leo Sayer's genre is considered Pop rock, soft rock, disco. 

The lyrics have been listed below for your reading pleasure.

"When I Need You"(3)

When I need you
I just close my eyes and I'm with you
And all that I so wanna give you
It's only a heartbeat away

When I need love
I hold out my hands and I touch love
I never knew there was so much love
Keeping me warm night and day
Miles and miles of empty space in between us
The telephone can't take the place of your smile
But you know I won't be travelin' forever
It's cold out, but hold out, and do I like I do

When I need you
I just close my eyes and I'm with you
And all that I so wanna give you, babe
It's only a heartbeat away
It's not easy when the road is your driver
Honey that's a heavy load that we bear
But you know I won't be traveling a lifetime
It's cold out, but hold out, and do like I do

Oh, I need you

[Instrumental Interlude]

When I need love
I hold out my hands and I touch love
I never knew there was so much love
Keeping me warm night and day

When I need you
I just close my eyes
And you're right here by my side
Keeping me warm night and day
I just hold out my hands
I just hold out my hand
And I'm with you darlin'
Yes, I'm with you darlin'
All I wanna give you
It's only a heartbeat away

Oh, I need you darling

Peace and Love Always, Diana

Una nota para mi amor Sugar.... Baila conmigo mi amor hasta mañana a la música que es divertido y lleno de vida.

Playing For Change "Stand By Me" #Love #Friendship #AgeIsOnlyANumber #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction:

“People will oppose your progress. They will remind you of your past failures, belittle you, etc. The only way to stand against such opposition and belittling is to know the reason for your existence.” 

― D.S. Mashego

Happy New Year 2018! Day 1 is hours away and already I have a story. Looks like I have a "Antagonist" in my life. Someone that finds it important to attack me in various ways and to her I say... Merry X'mas and Happy New Year!

The song that I am featuring this evening is titled “Stand by Me(2) and was originally written and produced by the brilliant musician Ben E. King and it is an R&B classic. 

The video being featured on this song was produced by "Playing For Change". It was  published on Nov 6, 2012 and uploading on YouTube by PlayingForChangeVEVO.

It is a brilliant video and I highly recommend it!

"Playing For Change Playing was born in 2002 as a shared vision between co-founders, Mark Johnson, Raan Williams and Whitney Kroenke, to hit the streets of America with a mobile recording studio and cameras in search of inspiration and the heartbeat of the people. Producers Johnson and Enzo Buono traveled around the world to places including New Orleans, Barcelona, South Africa, India, Nepal, the Middle East and Ireland. Using mobile recording equipment, the duo recorded local musicians performing the same song, interpreted in their own style. Among the artists participating or openly involved in the project are Vusi Mahlasela, Louis Mhlanga, Clarence Bekker, David Guido Pietroni, Tal Ben Ari (Tula), Bono, Keb' Mo', David Broza, Manu Chao, Grandpa Elliott, Keith Richards, Toots Hibbert from Toots & the Maytals, Taj Mahal and Stephen Marley. This resulted in the award-winning documentary A Cinematic Discovery of Street Musicians.

In 2005, Mark Johnson was walking in Santa Monica, California, when he heard the voice of Roger Ridley (now deceased) singing "Stand By Me." [1] Roger had so much soul and conviction in his voice, and Mark approached him about performing "Stand By Me" as a Song Around The World. Roger agreed, and when Mark returned with recording equipment and cameras he asked Roger, "With a voice like yours, why are you singing on the streets?" Roger replied, "Man I’m in the Joy business, I come out to be with the people." Ever since that day, the Playing For Change crew has traveled the world recording and filming musicians, creating Songs Around The World, and building a global family." (3)

"Stand By Me" (4)
When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we'll see
No, I won't be afraid
Oh, I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

So darlin', darlin'
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand, stand by me
Stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountain should crumble to the sea
I won't cry, I won't cry
No, I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me

And darlin', darlin'
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now, stand by me
Stand by me

Darlin', darlin'
Stand by me, oh, stand by me
Oh, stand now, stand by me
Stand by me
Whenever you're in trouble, won't you stand by me?
Oh, stand by me
Won't you stand now?
Oh, stand, stand by me

When all of our friends is gone

This video worth watching!
