"Rose of Sharon" by Mumford & Sons #NationalGeographic #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #SpeakTheTruth #ILovU

Introduction:



Rose of Sharon by Diana MarySharpton  (c) All Rights Reserved 2018

Don't let the expectations and opinions of other people affect your decisions. It's your life, not theirs. Do what matters most to you; do what makes you feel alive and happy. Don't let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. If you let others tell you who you are, you are living their reality — not yours. There is more to life than pleasing people. There is much more to life than following others' prescribed path. There is so much more to life than what you experience right now. You need to decide who you are for yourself. Become a whole being. Adventure.” 

― Roy T. Bennett

The song being featured this evening is titled "Rose of Sharon"(2). Sung by a brilliant and talented British group, Mumford & Sons. This song is the eighth track in their recently release (i.e. November  16, 2018) fourth albumn titled Delta. The songs introduce elements of electronica, rap and jazz with a tender lyric as with this song. The video is magical and is a collaboration with National Geographic. I recommend a few minutes of your  time to check it out.

"Rose of Sharon" is actually a name used when referring to common flowers like the Hibiscus for one. It does not reference an actual rose. It also has a paradoxical symbolism of purity and passion (i.e. heavenly perfection and earthly passion; virginity and fertility; death and life). The rose is the flower of the goddess Venus but also the blood of Adonis.

The video was published by Mumford & Sons on Dec 3, 2018.

Belief can be manipulated. Only knowledge is dangerous.” ― Frank Herbert 

I have listed the lyrics to the song below for your reading pleasure.

"Rose Of Sharon(3)


Fold your hair behind your ears
Roll your questions across the floor
I know you been here for years
But at least we been here before
My mind finds peace in the shade of your attention
But gets tangled by the night
I didn't know what I was thinking
But I know we'll be alright

And I will surround you
With a love too deep for words
Hold you from the world and its curse
So long as I have breath in my lungs
Long as there's a song to be sung
I will be yours and you will be mine
Ever our lives entwined
My rose of Sharon
My rose of Sharon

Come crashing in like a wildfire, I'm left in awe of you
Every time I close the door, I'm left wanting more of you
I wish I had some grand sense of occasion
But I'll just smile and turn away
I hope you know by now
I don't know another way

When it's said and done
I'm yours forever
Like I said, I'm done
I'm yours forever

I will surround you
With a love too deep for words
Hold you from the world and its curse
So long as I have breath in my lungs
Long as there's a song to be sung
I will be yours and you will be mine
Ever our lives entwined
My rose of Sharon
My rose of Sharon

With a love too deep for words
I'm yours forever
With a love too deep for words
I'm yours forever
With a love too deep for words
I'm yours forever
With a love too deep for words
I'm yours forever

My words, my thoughts, my language...

Peace as always
Diana


Winter is here, all I can think about is this spring. Loving the thought of you, my love... always

Is That Alright? (A Star Is Born) - Lady Gaga #Lookingin2UrEyes #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #LoveOfMyLife

Introduction:

 I know there were no guarantees. No way of knowing what came next for me, or him, or anything. Some things don't last forever, but some things do. Like a great song, or a good book, or a good memory you can take out and unfold in your darkest times, pressing down the corners and peering close, hoping you still see the person you see there . . . That was the thing, you just never knew. Right now, though, I wanted not to think forward or backward, but only to lose myself in the words and images of him. 

― Sarah Dessen

The song being featured this evening is titled "Is That Alright?"(2). Sung by the brilliant and talented Lady Gaga, this song is a piano-driven ballad written by Lady Gaga, Mark Nilan Jr., Nick Monson, Paul "DJWS" Blair, and Aaron Raitierewhich.

"Is that Alright" is the 25th track in the soundtrack albumn from the re-release movie "A Star is Born" released on October 5, 2018


The video was published by Lady Gaga
 on Oct 4, 2018.


I have listed the lyrics to the song below for your reading pleasure.

"Is That Alright?(3)

(from "A Star Is Born" soundtrack)

Life is so simple
A little boy, a little girl
Laughing and loving
Trying to figure out the world
It felt like summer
When I kissed you in the rain
And I know your story
But tell me again

Nothing you said wouldn't interest me
All of your words are like poems to me
I would be honored if you would take me as I am

I want you to look right in my eyes
To tell me you love me, to be by my side
I want you at the end of my life
I wanna see your face, when I fall with grace
At the moment I die
Is that alright?
Is that alright?

I hope you're still with me when I'm not quite myself
And I pray that you'll lift me when you know I need help
It's a warm celebration of all of our years
I dream of our story, of our fairy tale

Family dinners and family trees
Teaching the kids to say thank you and please
Know that if we stay together that things will be right

I want you to look right in my eyes
To tell me you love me, to be by my side
I want you at the end of my life
I wanna see your face, when I fall with grace
At the moment I die
Is that alright?
Is that alright?
Is that alright?

My words, my thoughts, my language...

Peace as always
Diana


As winter approaches, all I can think about is this spring. Loving the thought of you, my love... always

Alessia Cara - Stone #New #follow #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #Stones

Introduction:

“My heart only ever had one thought, one want. One need. Despite all, in spite of all...All my heart has ever wanted is you.”

― Stephanie Laurens

The song I am picking for this evening is titled “Stone(2) by Alessia Cara. The video was uploaded on YOUTUBE on Nov 13, 2015 by  Alessia Cara.

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"Stone" (3)
(feat". Sebastian Kole)

So much on my mind, I think I think too much
Read between these lines, unspoken weight of words
But time comes to rest when you are by my side, it blurs

And I will follow where this takes me
And my tomorrows long to be unknown
When all is shaken, be my safety
In a world uncertain, say you'll be my stone

Change in every wind
The sands of time don't know our name
Oh nothing's sure, but surely as we stand
I promise I will stay the same
And I've never seen forever
But I know we'll remain

And I will follow where this takes me
And my tomorrows long to be unknown
When all is shaken, be my safety
In a world uncertain, say you'll be my stone
(Oooooooh oooh oooh)
Be my stone
In a world uncertain, say you'll be my stone

Oh steady me, be my source of gravity
While my world's unraveling
Say you'll never change, ooooohhhh!!! Oh!

And I will follow where this takes me
And my tomorrows long to be unknown
When all is shaken, be my safety
In a world uncertain, say you'll be my stone
(Oooooooh oooh oooh)
Be my stone
In a world uncertain, say you'll be my stone

I spent my Sunday exploring The Baker Hotel in Mineral Wells, Texas. It was Texas hot and haunting. I am setting up a gallery on my artist website titled "The Baker Hotel" on

Premiere - Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper - "Shallow" #Love #Fear #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #Passion #Chemistry #Ours

Introduction:
 

“All the things that people do in order to show that they don't need anybody... meanwhile, all they really want to do is say, "Please keep me." We all want to be kept. The problem is we are too afraid to let anyone know about it. What are these fragile things in our hearts that have so much fear of being broken?” 

― C. JoyBell C.


The song being featured this evening is titled "Shallow"(2). One of the all time classics sung the brilliantly as a duet by Bradley Cooper and Lady Cooper.

"Shallow" is the first powerful single from the up coming  re-release movie "A Star is Born" on October 5, 2018. I am loving it! Sexy to say the least and the chemistry is rolling off the page...

The video was published by Lady Gaga
 on Sep 27, 2018.

I have listed the lyrics to the song below for your reading pleasure.

"Shallow(3)

(from "A Star Is Born" soundtrack)

[Bradley Cooper:]
Tell me somethin' girl
Are you happy in this modern world?
Or do you need more?
Is there somethin' else you're searchin' for?

I'm falling
In all the good times I find myself longin' for change
And in the bad times I fear myself

[Lady Gaga:]
Tell me something boy
Aren't you tired tryin' to fill that void?
Or do you need more?
Ain't it hard keeping it so hardcore?

I'm falling
In all the good times I find myself longing for change
And in the bad times I fear myself

I'm off the deep end, watch as I dive in
I'll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface, where they can't hurt us
We're far from the shallow now

[Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper:]
In the shallow, shallow
In the shallow, shallow
In the shallow, shallow
We're far from the shallow now

[Lady Gaga:]
Wooaaaah
Woaaaaaaaaaaah

I'm off the deep end, watch as I dive in
I'll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface, where they can't hurt us
We're far from the shallow now

[Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper:]
In the shallow, shallow
In the shallow, shallow
In the shallow, shallow
We're far from the shallow now

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week-end and thank you as always for checking out my posts. I pray you’re having a blessed and safe day or evening regardless of where you might be in this world.

And I will love you even when you may not be all that lovable, for sometimes I'm not very lovable either. You can count on me - always.”

"Love Is Here To Stay(3)


It's very clear
Our love is here to stay
Not for a year, but ever and a day

The radio
And the telephone
And the movies that we know
May just be passing fancies and in time may go

But oh my dear
Our love is here to stay
Together we're going a long long way

In time the Rockies may crumble
Gibraltar may tumble
They're only made of clay
But our love is here to stay

"Peaceful Easy Feeling(3)


I like the way your sparkling earrings lay
Against your skin so brown.
And I wanna sleep with you in the desert tonight
With a billion stars all around.

'Cause I got a peaceful easy feeling.
And I know you won't let me down
'Cause I'm already standing on the ground.

And I found out a long time ago
What a woman can do to your soul.
Oh, but she can't take you anyway,
You don't already know how to go.

And I got a peaceful easy feeling.
And I know you won't let me down
'Cause I'm already standing on the ground.

I get this feeling I may know you
As a lover and a friend.
But this voice keeps whispering in my other ear,
Tells me I may never see you again.

'Cause I get a peaceful easy feeling.
And I know you won't let me down
'Cause I'm already standing
I'm already standing
Yes, I'm already standing on the ground

One of these nights..[etc.]

Iron & Wine - Waves of Galveston #New #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #GrabTheBullbyHisHorns #LivingisToday

Introduction:

“Nothing happens in the "real" world unless it first happens in the images in our heads” 

Gloria Anzaldua


The song being featured this evening is titled "Waves Of Galveston"(2). Sung by an artist totally new to me but definitely got my attention. Iron &Wine, better know as Samuel Ervin Beam, is an amazing up and coming singer/songwriter. For all of those who want to know, he is from Chapin, South Carolina and currently lives in Austin, Texas.

"Waves Of Galveston" has touched my heart. Personally from Texas and intimately aware of the expectations in living here, I can tell you the verse is a story of truths for many people at so many levels. The words were the begining and the melody was the end for me. It's a good song. 

Most of "Iron & Wine's" genre is  Folk, folk rock, and indie folk. The song was written in 2013 from what I can gather; however it has not been added to any of his previous albums or officially released. It is my understanding from a post by "The Label"(4) "Waves Of Galveston" is the 2nd track on an new six song EP collection scheduled to be released on August 31, 2018. I can hardly wait. I know it will be a hit!  

The video was published on August 31, 2018 by SubPop.

You can find more information on this Iron & Wine on the following social media accounts:
Iron and Wine: http://www.ironandwine.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ironandwine Twitter: https://twitter.com/ironandwine Instagram: http://instagram.com/ironandwinetour

I have listed the lyrics to the song below for your reading pleasure.

"Waves Of Galveston(3)


Leave the waves of Galveston but only if you can
Cause you've been hit behind the seawall, gently folded in the sand
Papa left you for Heaven after your Mama lost her song
And though your baby left you for Houston, no one stays there very long

There's a graveyard by the pizza parlor, a gate that only closes
Snowbirds fly away like secrets sn one really wants to know
The climbing moon's always shining on the kind of shells you keep
The broken horse tied to the water tower's running in his sleep

It's too bad that you ain't got a soft place to fall
It's too bad Texas leans to the least of us all
And says, "If you can make the music then you can have the dance
If you can shoot the pistol then you can wear the pants"

So leave the waves of Galveston but only if you can
Cause it's the only place the Lone Star kind have offered you a hand
Your baby left you nothing and a dog was left for dead
You never knew you were a burden til it hit you on the head

It's too bad that you ain't got a soft place to fall
It's too bad Texas leans on the least in us all
And says, "If you can make the music then you can have the dance
If you can shoot the pistol then you can wear the pants"

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week-end and thank you as always for checking out my posts. I pray you’re having a blessed and safe day or evening regardless of where you might be in this world.

My words, my thoughts, my language...

Peace as always
Diana


In love with you all over again, Sugar...
