Bruce Springsteen - If I Should Fall Behind #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #Tenderness

Introduction


The wait is long, my dream of you does not end.” ― Nuala O'Faolain

A day went by and I turned another year. More than ever now, I wonder about my future, if there is one, where will I be? How will it look when I get there? Will I be happy? Will all my dreams come true? Will there be any time left to enjoy it? It seems like I have been spinning around in circles for the past ten years. Unhappy, lost for the most part. 

Then there is you… Can we go back a couple of steps? You see I have no more time. Can we walk together? Will you finally take a chance and talk to me?

These are the feelings that overcame me when I heard my next video by Bruce Springsteen. It is brilliant! The vibe, words, musical talent everything is right on point. The song titled “If I Should Fall Behind” was written in 1989 by Bruce Springsteen as a love song to his wife. It is a tender song for sure and it makes you want exactly that tenderness, love, companionship and all the above.

The music video was published on YouTube Feb 28, 2014 by BruceSpringsteenVEVO. Bruce Springsteen’s genres are Rock, heartland rock, folk rock, hard rock, and rock & roll. I highly recommend this exquisite music and I have list the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.


If I Should Fall Behind (3)
We said we'd walk together baby come what may
That come the twilight should we lose our way
If as we're walking a hand should slip free
I'll wait for you
And should I fall behind
Wait for me

We swore we'd travel darlin' side by side
We'd help each other stay in stride
But each lover's steps fall so differently
But I'll wait for you
And if I should fall behind
Wait for me

Now everyone dreams of love lasting and true
Oh, but you and I know what this world can do
So let's make our steps clear that the other may see
I'll wait for you
And if I should fall behind
Wait for me

Now there's a beautiful river in the valley ahead
There 'neath the oak's bough soon we will be wed
Should we lose each other in the shadow of the evening trees
I'll wait for you
Should I fall behind
Wait for me

Darlin' I'll wait for you
Should I fall behind
Wait for me

Yeah, I'll wait for you
Should I fall behind
Wait for me

I'll wait for you
Should I fall behind
Wait for me

Thank you for your continued support. I pray you are having a blessed evening or morning and that you enjoyed this selection as much as I did.

Peace and Love Always Diana
You live in my soul darlin’; loneness is only a shadow; where you are my light.

Celine Dion & Josh Groban Live "The Prayer" #MUSICVIDEO #INSPIRATION #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction:

The challenge to shifting perspective can be broken down into two general categories. The first relates to passive ignorance—people are not aware that they even have a perspective and that others might see things differently. The second relates to active indifference or resistance—we don't care that the other side may see things differently; we only want to see things our own way.” ― Donny Ebenstein

I went to a class today title “Discover Your Behavioral Profile” and met myself for the first time. This statement sounds odd coming from a young lady that is over fifty… Ha! Ha! It’s true. It was all about discovering ones four behavioral factors within varying degrees of intensity. It was fascinating and introspective. I had to take an assessment test first and would say they nailed me. If you are interested, the class was sponsored by “The Abeison Group”. Google them.

Anyway, long story short, my natural style (me) and adaptive style (mask) are quite similar and I am going to break it down for you for fun. Please remember that you need to understand the root of a word and its definition to understand where I am coming from.

1. Dominance “D”: (Problem) I am not a task master. I do not need results or fear losing success in some manner. I am an introvert and the words that define me in this category are “Calculating” (i.e. 1. to calculate something like the velocity of light. 2. to determine by reasoning, common sense, or practical experience; estimate; evaluate; gauge. 3. to make suitable or fit for a purpose; adapt) & “Cooperative” (i.e. involving mutual assistance in working toward a common goal. collaborative, collective, combined, common, joint, shared, mutual, united, concerted, coordinated.)

2. Influencing “I”: (People) I have trust issues because I was deeply wounded in childhood so I need reassurance. I need to feel safe with my surroundings and with the people I love or interface with, be it in the work place or in my personal life. It’s simple. Does this sound familiar? Here are the describers. “Reflective”; “Factual”; “Calculating”; Skeptical” & “Logical”. You can google the positive definitions. :)

3. Steadiness “S”: (Pace) Emotion = Nonemotion. I hold everything in until it needs to come out. More than likely it should come out sooner rather than later. I am motivated to be emotionally in control. To be perceived in this manner as well, even though it is not always the underlying truth. My biggest fear is loss. The loss of something I hold dear (i.e. job, loved one, home etc.). Here are the describers. “Consistent”; “Steady”; “Stable” & “Patient”.

I will share a short story with you. When I was in my teens my father became very ill. He was close to death. I walked into the room and he reached out to me with his hand. I can still see that moment in my brain as if it was a minute ago, he wanted my love. In his mind, he was dying.

It is important to understand the relationship he and I had. We were constant companions and great friends ever since I was a little girl. He took me everywhere, horseback riding, trips everywhere. My father call me his “sweetness and light”. I loved that man dearly and still do. He was my rock. Well that day, I panicked. I became so frighten, I utter not a word, quickly turned away, ran out the room and kept running until I was miles away from home. Everyone was shocked. I could not face another loss in my life. It cut deep into my soul. My father however was hurt by my actions. He recovered and later after another crisis I could not face he told me in passing “you are strong person Diana with week emotions” and he was right. The point is that fear is my mortal enemy.


4. Compliance “C”: (Procedure) I need to understand why. I am not only an introvert but also a perfectionist. I need information, data, structure, process, variables, unknowns. This is my paradox. This is my strength. I remove fear by analyzing and solving the problem to protect and keep me safe. It is basic. Here are the describers. “Diplomatic”; “Balanced Judgement”; “Open-Minded”; “Accurate” & “Systematic”.

The whole point is that I have been looking at someone that I dearly care about through my eyes not theirs and this was erroneous. Through fear. To be able to see a person or even understand their behavior from the perspective of who they are, what their needs are, what fears they may have is enlightening and places a whole different dimension into communication, friendship and/or relationships. Think about it. How would you communicate with a person with relatively the same strengths, fears, and weaknesses? Or even someone that is the complete opposite? Bottom line develop the skill in seeing people through their eyes.

Okay, it’s certainly time for some pink champagne and good music. Celine Dion fits in perfectly with her brilliant rendition of “The Prayer” featuring Josh Groban. I highly recommend this exquisite music and I have list the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

“The Prayer"
(3)
Can we touch the soul of heaven
Can we unite a sacred lesson
Every child creates a skylight of beauty
Can you hear cathedrals falling
All the universe is calling
Cry a single cello from your heart?
Since the world has lost her way
Loneliness journey, endlessly
Yet the promised chance remains
Gift of what could be
So let the children remember the sun
Let them dance, let them soar
For their lives have begun
Let the children engender the rain
As the river runs through fields
Forever subsiding their pain
Prayer
Every voice along the shoreline
Standing still within time
Spinnin' unresolved
Walking as each season passes
Through wonderland, through walking glasses
A secret garden shines, beckons you
Gentle flower don't fade away
Sweet innocence still harbors thee
In the faint of golden dreams
Where one love lives eternally
Let the children remember the sun
Let them dance, let them soar
For their lives have begun
Let the children engender the rain
As the river runs through fields
Forever subsiding their pain
Prayer, prayer
Bless the children for they are the light
They are the truth of spirit in flight
Yes, the children engender the rain
As the river runs through life
Healing their pain
If you could trust with your heart one more time
Sweet angel conceived
You have forever and always believed,
Prayer
Prayer, oh, prayer


Thank you for your continued support. I pray you are having a blessed evening or morning and that you enjoyed this selection as much as I did. Remember music is a language and these are my thoughts tonight.

Peace and Love Always Diana
You exist in my soul; NOT solitude but radiance. You are my light, my inspiration, and my safety. I see you and trust this love.

Tommy James and the Shondells - Crimson and Clover #Musicvideo #DianaMarySharpton #Rock&Roll

Introduction:

There are many ways to get to know someone, and my favorite is seeing them naked in Happy Baby pose.

I also feel it is important to have sex soon after meeting someone in order to find out if you have sexual chemistry together. Otherwise, you could wait two to three months after you start dating someone only to discover that your new boyfriend is bad in bed, or even worse, is into anal beads and duct tape.” 
― Chelsea Handler

The song I am featuring this evening is titled "Crimson & Clover"(2). It is the 1st tract in Tommy James and the Shondells' mega hit album released in 1969 titled "Crimson & Clover". The song was released as a single in 1968 and reached it's peak as #8 on the Billboard 200. 

Tommy James and the Shondells is an American rock and roll group from Niles, Michigan, U.S active between 1959 through present. 

Have a great Sunday! It’s cold here in Richardson, Texas and I hope the weather is not so bad where you are.

Always, thank you for the shares and support given. I trust you’re having a wonderful evening or morning and the lyrics are listed below for your reading pleasure.

"Crimson And Clover"(3)
Oh
Now I don't hardly know her
But I think I could love her
Crimson and clover

Ah
I wish she'd come walking over
Now I've been waiting to show her
Crimson and clover
Over and over

Yes (da-da, da-da, da-da)
My my, such a sweet thing (da-da, da-da, da-da)
I want to do everything (da-da, da-da, da-da)
What a beautiful feeling (da-da, da-da, da-da)
Crimson and clover (da-da, da-da, da-da)
Over and over

Crimson and clover, over and over
Crimson and clover, over and over
Crimson and clover, over and over
Crimson and clover, over and over
Crimson and clover, over and over
Crimson and clover, over and over

GQ-I do love you #Reunion #Passion #Musicvideo #DianaMarySharpton

ISTOCK/DEAN MITCHELL

Introduction:

With a chaste heart 
With pure eyes I celebrate your beauty
Holding the leash of blood
So that it might leap out and trace your outline 
Where you lie down in my Ode 
As in a land of forests or in surf
In aromatic loam, or in sea music

Beautiful nude
Equally beautiful your feet
Arched by primeval tap of wind or sound
Your ears, small shells
Of the splendid American sea
Your breasts of level plentitude
Fulfilled by living light
Your flying eyelids of wheat
Revealing or enclosing
The two deep countries of your eyes

The line your shoulders have divided into pale regions
Loses itself and blends into the compact halves of an apple 
Continues separating your beauty down into two columns of
Burnished gold
Fine alabaster
To sink into the two grapes of your feet
Where your twin symmetrical tree burns again and rises
Flowering fire
Open chandelier
A swelling fruit 
Over the pact of sea and earth 

From what materials
Agate?
Quartz?
Wheat?
Did your body come together?
Swelling like baking bread to signal silvered hills 
The cleavage of one petal 
Sweet fruits of a deep velvet 
Until alone remained
Astonished 
The fine and firm feminine form 

It is not only light that falls over the world spreading inside your body
Yet suffocate itself
So much is clarity 
Taking its leave of you
As if you were on fire within 

The moon lives in the lining of your skin.”

― Pablo Neruda

GQ is an old-school R&B, disco band formed in The Bronx, New York. They were active between 1968 through 1999. The song I am going to feature this evening is their mega hit titled "I Love You So"(2) and performed by Billy Stewart

Released as a single in February 1968, it reached #6 on the U.S. R&B chart and #26 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1965. I love this mellow vibe and it's great for a sexy dance... with that special person… Just saying. 

Have a great Saturday! It’s snowing here in Richardson, Texas and I hope the weather is not so bad where you are.

Always, thank you for the shares and support given. I trust you’re having a wonderful evening or morning and the lyrics are listed below for your reading pleasure.

London Grammar - "Rooting For You" #MUSICVIDEO #Premiere #DianaMarySharpton. Love is Timeless.


Grethe Kaspsersen

Introduction

You are beautiful like demolition. Just the thought of you draws my knuckles white. I don’t need a god. I have you and your beautiful mouth, your hands holding onto me, the nails leaving unfelt wounds, your hot breath on my neck. The taste of your saliva. The darkness is ours. The nights belong to us. Everything we do is secret. Nothing we do will ever be understood; we will be feared and kept well away from. It will be the stuff of legend, endless discussion and limitless inspiration for the brave of heart. It’s you and me in this room, on this floor. Beyond life, beyond morality. We are gleaming animals painted in moonlit sweat glow. Our eyes turn to jewels and everything we do is an example of spontaneous perfection. I have been waiting all my life to be with you. My heart slams against my ribs when I think of the slaughtered nights I spent all over the world waiting to feel your touch. The time I annihilated while I waited like a man doing a life sentence. Now you’re here and everything we touch explodes, bursts into bloom or burns to ash. History atomizes and negates itself with our every shared breath. I need you like life needs life. I want you bad like a natural disaster. You are all I see. You are the only one I want to know.” ― Henry Rollins
Love this soulful vibe and video premiere by London Grammar, titled “Rooting for You”. London Grammar is a British trio formed by Hannah Reid, Dan Rothman and Dominic 'Dot' Major back in 2012 "Rooting for You" is their new single released January 1, 2017. It primarily features lead singer Hannah Reid and she is brilliant with a sultry tone and huge vocal range.

The song begins acapella, where Hannah appears to be alone in a darkened room; however, as the music crescendos the lights come on illuminating the remaining members of the band and a symphony orchestra. The conclusion of the video speaks to the song's message. It is a dramatic and powerful piece.

The music video was produced by Sonya Sier and Zoe Wheeler and publish on YouTube Dec 31, 2016 by LondonGrammarVEVO. The groups musical genres are listed as Pop, neo prog trip hop, dream pop, electronica, and indie pop; however, to me this song seems transitional, more of a Blues genre with neo-soul influences. I highly recommend this exquisite music and I have list the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

“Rooting for You" (3)
Let winter break
Let it burn 'til I see you again
I will be here with you
Just like I told you I would
I'd love to always love you
But I'm scared of loneliness
When I'm, when I'm alone with you
[Chorus]
I know it's hard
Only you and I
Is it all for me?
Because I know it's all for you
And I guess, I guess
It is only, you are the only thing I've ever truly known
So, I hesitate, if I can act the same for you
And my darlin', I'll be rooting for you
And my darlin', I'll be rooting for you
[Verse 2]
And where did she go?
Truth left us long ago
And I need her tonight because I'm scared of loneliness with you, baby
And I should let it go
But all that is left is my perspective, broken and so left behind again
[Chorus]
I know it's hard
Only you and I
Is it all for me?
Because I know it's all for you
And I guess, I guess
It is only, you are the only thing I've ever truly known
So, I hesitate, if I can act the same for you
And my darlin', I'll be rooting for you
And my darlin', I'll be rooting for you

Thank you for your continued support. I pray you are having a blessed evening or morning and that you enjoyed this selection as much as I did.

Peace and Love Always Diana
You exist in my soul; NOT as solitude but as radiance.
