ROME "I Belong to You" #Passion #IWantU #MUSICVIDEO #DianaMarySharpton

At the Moment (1)

Introduction:

You only need one man to love you. But him to love you free like a wildfire, crazy like the moon, always like tomorrow, sudden like an inhale and overcoming like the tides. Only one man and all of this.” 

― C. JoyBell C.

The artist selected to goes by the stage name Rome. I have not seen or heard much from him since the release of his self-titled album “Rome” in 1997. The genre is an American R&B and the song presented tonight is “I Belong to You(2). The whole album is just hot trust me on that. The video was uploaded to YouTube in 1997 as well.

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

I Belong to You(3)
Everytime I see your face it makes me want to sing
And everytime I think about your love
It drives me crazy (2x)

Say my lady
Tell me what's wrong with your boyfriend
Aaaahhhhh come on
He holds the key to your heart
But he don't love you baby, baby like I do
Only wanna be with you
Girl you are the love of my life babe
And I'd give it to you baby
You belong to me and only me
I belong to you (I belong)
I'd give all my love to you

Chorus:
Everytime I see your face it makes me want to sing
And everytime I think about your love it drives me crazy
(2x)

Say my lady
You are so fine
I wake up in the mornin' to see a smile on your face (baby)
You are the queen of my heart baby
I belong to you and you belong to me (yeah)
Girl you are the love of my life baby
All those cloudy days they fade away when you come my way baby
I belong to you (I belong)
I'd give all my love to you

I belong, I belong, I belong to you baby oooooo

Remember my music, my language and my words.

Love and Peace always ~ Diana

Our passion belongs to one another...

Let's Wrap of this Week-End w/Ambrosia - How Much I Feel #musicvideo #DianaMarySharpton

Ambrosia – How Much I Feel (1)

Introduction:

The timeless in you is aware of life's timelessness. And knows that yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream. 
― Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

I am feeling a bit blue and lonely and need that music pick me up. It’s the end of a lovely three day summer week-end and that of course compounds my sentiments. The band I am going to pick is from the 70’s. Yes, you are going to have stretch and dig deep into that memory card for Ambrosia and the song is titled "How Much I Feel."(1)

How Much I Feel (2)
Ambrosia
I don't know how this whole business started
Of you thinkin' that I have been untrue.
But if you think that we'd be better parted,
It's gonna hurt me, but I'll break away from you.
Well, just give me the sign and I will be gone, yeah.

That's how much I feel, feel for you, baby.
How much I need, well I need your touch.
How much I live, I live for your loving.
That's how much, that's how much,
That's how much, that's how much.

I sleep alone, and late at night I'm dreamin'
Of the togetherness that seems to be leaving me.
I'd give it all and then I'd give some more
If you would only love me like you had before.
Well, take hold of my hand and all will be forgiven, yeah.

That's how much I feel, feel for you, baby.
How much I need, well I need your touch.
How much I live, I live for your loving.
That's how much, that's how much,
That's how much, that's how much.

So you try, try to stay in the middle.
And then you cry, well you cry just a little.
Then you both realize
Just how foolish you've been.
And you try to make amends
But you're better off as friends.
'Cause that's how much, that's how much,
That's how much, that's how much.

How's your life been goin' on?
I've got a wife now. Years we've been goin' strong.
There's just something that I've got to say:
Sometimes when we make love,
I still can see your face.
Ooh, just try to recall
When we were as one, yeah.

That's how much I feel, feel for you, baby.
How much I need, well I need your touch.
How much I live, I live for your loving.
That's how much, that's how much,
That's how much, that's how much.

Grilled T-Bone & Shrimp served alongside Spicy Okra with Crab Meat over Steamed White Ed Sheeran's 'Perfect" #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction:

I focused on him. Everything still seemed blurry, but he was close enough that I could see him. He was completely soaked. His jeans, shoes, jacket, and shirt. He was just as wet as I was. His normally messy blond hair was darker and flat to his head from the weight of the water.
Dark shadows haunted his eyes and his lips were pale from the cold. 
"You jumped in after me," I whispered.
"I'd jump into the pits of hell for you, Rim.” 

― Cambria Hebert


One of my very favorite dishes is spicy okra with crab meat over white rice. This Sunday, the menu is a grilled T-Bone and Shrimp served alongside Spicy Okra with Crab Meat over Steamed White Rice.  You can review my previous posts to see how I grilled the steak and shrimp. The secret is fresh lime juice, Webbers Cajun Seafood spice for the shrimp and Webbers Chicago Style Steak spice for the T-Bone.

My cooking focus for today is the spicy okra with crab meat over steamed white rice.

Spicy Crab and Okra Ingredients:
© copywrite by DMS Photography~all rights reserved (1)
1 lbs. okra
1/2 red onion – chop in thin long slices and then cross cut.
1/4 fresh jalapeno without seeds - minced
1 bunch of cilantro
1 can of Rotel Tomatoes/Cilantro/Lime/Jalapeno
1 clove garlic - minced
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp. chile powder
1 tsp. ground cumin seeds
1 Tbsp. chicken bouillon
1/4 tsp. cayenne
1/2 tsp. salt plus more to taste
1/2 lemon for juice
1/2 to 1 lb. fully cooked crab meat.

Preparation:
Trim off the stem ends from the okra and cut the pods into 1/4- to 1/2-inch slices; place in bowl. Then peel and thinly slice the "red" onion adding to the bowl of okra along with the minced jalapeno. Heat oil in a medium to a large frying pan and sauté all the ingredients in the bowl over a medium high heat. Browning the okra will eliminate the slime factor. After 3-5 minutes add the mince the garlic and set them both aside. A secret is only stir occasionally.

Add chili powder, ground cumin seeds, salt and cayenne, to the okra and cook, stirring occasionally, another 30 seconds. Add the can of tomatoes, lime juice and chicken bouillon and 1 cup of water. Stir combine and cover. Reduce heat to maintain a steady simmer and cook until okra is tender and flavors are blended, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the cooked crab meat at the very end and simmer for an additional 3 minutes.

Serve over steamed white rice.

Just amazing! All mine even the picture....

To accompany this delicious meal I have selected a brilliant artist that can speak to where my heart is right now. That's right Ed Sheeran singing "Perfect"(2).

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure. Enjoy and have a brilliant weekend!

"Perfect"(3)
I found a love for me
Darling, just dive right in and follow my lead
Well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet
Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me
'Cause we were just kids when we fell in love
Not knowing what it was
I will not give you up this time
But darling, just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own
And in your eyes you're holding mine

Baby, I'm dancing in the dark with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath
But you heard it, darling, you look perfect tonight

Well I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know
She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I'll share her home
I found a love, to carry more than just my secrets
To carry love, to carry children of our own
We are still kids, but we're so in love
Fighting against all odds
I know we'll be alright this time
Darling, just hold my hand
Be my girl, I'll be your man
I see my future in your eyes

Baby, I'm dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
When I saw you in that dress, looking so beautiful
I don't deserve this, darling, you look perfect tonight

Baby, I'm dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
I have faith in what I see
Now I know I have met an angel in person
And she looks perfect, I don't deserve this

You look perfect tonight

Love and Peace Always
Diana


Si je pouvais vous dire une chose et c’était ma dernière pensée dans la vie, il serait que je t’aime ma chérie.
