A Slow Friday Night Sound - "Arms of a Woman" by Amos Lees #MUSICVIDEO #DianaMarySharpton #SlowDancewU

In the Arms of a Woman (1)

Introduction:

There couldn't be anything more perfect, she thought, than slow dancing, barefoot, on a balcony in New Orleans, while the rain poured down and twilight wrapped around them


― Linda Howard

It’s Friday and my weekend is here, folks!!!  One of my favorite Friday evening activates, after the local High School Football game, is to run a steamy hot bubble bath, fill the room with lit candles, pouring a tall glass wine and put on some music, preferably something I have never heard before with soul, jazz and a little country. I just love taking in a new album or sound for the very first time in this manner. It’s soothing and peaceful. By the way another practice is to take a long drive to nowhere, just me, the music and the road. So where am I going with this and why?

I have been introduced to a NEW artist and his music by another G+ circle friend. Thank you all for your continued inspiration. I am a better person because of all the folks that interact with me daily on my Blog and for hearing this song, in particular!

A little background about the artist, I am featuring. He was born in Philadelphia, PA and his is more of a mixed bag genre which encompasses folk/country, rock and soul. His name is Amos Lee. He just sings to the very essences of my soul, hitting all the gaps and open spaces found within. I am just love’n this music and re-wind, re-wind. Okay, so go ahead pay the $0.99 and download it, I am…LOL!!!! Oh! The song, which was first released in 2005 is titled “Arms of a Woman(2).

I am listing the lyrics for your reading pleasure.

"Arms Of A Woman" (3)
I am at ease in the arms of a woman.
Although now,
most of my days i spend alone.
A thousand miles,
from the place i was born.
But when she wakes me, 
she takes me back home. 

Now, most days,
i spend like a child.
Who's afraid of ghosts in my mind.
I know, there aint nothing out there.
I'm still afraid to turn on the lights.

I am at ease in the arms of a woman.
Although now,
most of my days a i spend alone.
A thousand miles,
the place i was born.
When she wakes me, 
she takes me back home. 

A thousand miles,
the place i was born.
When she wakes me,
she takes me back home. 

I am at ease in the arms of a woman.
Although now,
most of my days i spend alone. 
A thousand miles,
from the place i was born.
When she wakes me,
she takes me..
Ya, when she wakes me,
she takes me back home. 
When she wakes me,

she takes me back home.

I hope you enjoy the song and artist as much as I do and I pray you have a blessed and brilliant weekend as well!!

Peace Diana
I can taste this dance with you, Sugar...
