Golden Days by Maurice Gene #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #Friendship #WillAlwaysLovU

Introduction


You never know beforehand what people are capable of, you have to wait, give it time, it's time that rules, time is our gambling partner on the other side of the table and it holds all the cards of the deck in its hand, we have to guess the winning cards of life, our lives.” 

― José Saramago

It's spring break 2019 and I am indulging in some alternative folk music. I met this artist on G+. He was writing everyone in his circle to keep in touch. G+ is being benched by Google in April 2019 as you well know by now. Sad!

The artist is from Catalan, Spain and has a fascinating soulful sound. The tune I selected is titled "Golden Days" which is melancholic, thoughtful and beautifully written.

According to the publication narrative it "is a song about how we lose friends as we get older, and what we can do to avoid losing them completely. Let’s get back a long lost friendship and remember the good old days."

It's one of those pieces of music that will fit into your own personal narrative and journey. No matter what it might be.


The artist is Maurice Gene a talented singer, songwriter and producer. This song is an original published on YouTube on Nov 2017 by Maurice Gene.

A little bit about the artist Maurice Gene from his own website: 

Genre - Alternative Folk
"Maurice Gene is a Catalan composer, singer, songwriter and guitarist. Maurice’s music stands out for the great melodic guitar work and heartfelt vocals behind his songs, giving them a final touch with captivating lyrics and intricate roots arrangements. 

Heavily influenced by the sounds of 1970s (Jackson Browne, Neil Young, Tom Petty, Tim Buckley…) Maurice composes, records, mixes and produces all his material, creating a unique and alternative Indie Folk style. 

After twenty years of focusing on shared projects and collaborations, Maurice decided to start out on his own. In his own personal career, he took inspiration from twenty years of learning, training, experimenting, and collecting musical and social knowledge in order to find the lyrics and sound he wanted.  

Maurice ventures to express his experience on his own musical Odyssey. And with the release of each single, he comes one step closer in his journey to his first LP... coming soon."

Golden Days"(3)

Golden days, 
Golden days came true,
Now past days, 
Past days come true,
Split life in photographs.

Lost ways,
Lost ways we found,
Now odd ways,
Odd ways we're bound,
But I can't turn back the years.

You should take care of them all,
You should call and say hello ... after all,
But I am not the one, who makes things right,
I am the one who wrecks it all,
Our life is so true, our light is so bright,
But we can't have it all.

Old friends, 
Old friends came by,
New friends, 
New friends' come and gone,
Don't you lose them once again.

Too close,
Too close we fly,
Our time,
Our time flies by,
And Any sign's a lie.

Body language paired with spoken words is the complete recipe for a pair who would like to improve their communication. Yes... indeed and very interesting.... smile

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


Thinking about you, that day, when I opened the door... your expression... I love you so dearly...

Peace"(3)

I don’t wanna fight no more
Only wanna get to shore
Baby, don’t slam the door tonight
We ran another off the tracks
That’s time we can’t get back
But, we can save tomorrow if we try

Oh, 'til we make this right
Oh, I won’t say, "Good night."

I just wanna make you laugh
I just wanna see that smile
Babe, we’re only here, oh, for a little while
I just wanna hold you till we fall asleep
I want love, I want us, I want you, I want me, I want peace

Everybody needs a place
Somewhere that’s warm and safe
A shelter from this crazy world we’re in,
But tonight I let the rain inside
And took away your place to hide
I’m sorry that I made you cry again

Oh, we can make this right,
Oh, kiss me good night

I just wanna make you laugh
I just wanna see that smile
Babe, we’re only here, oh, for a little while
I just wanna hold you till we fall asleep
I want love, I want us, I want you, I want me, I want peace

Yeah, I want peace

Oh, we don't have to fight
Oh, just kiss me all night

'Cause I want peace, yeah

I just wanna make you laugh
I just wanna see that smile
Babe, we’re only here, oh, for a little while
I just wanna hold you till we fall asleep
I want love, I want us, I want you, I want me, I want peace

I just wanna make you laugh
I just wanna see that smile
Babe, we’re only here, oh, for a little while
I just wanna hold you till you fall asleep
I want love, I want us, I want you, I want me, I want peace,
I want love, I want us, I want you, I want me, I want peace

Strike a match and set me on fire
Watch it burn and flames getting higher
You light me up, sweet old desire
So won’t you come close to my fire?

You light me up, sweet old desire
So won’t you come close to my fire?

Boy you are my symptom delusion
You’re melting me down, my resolution

John Hiatt - Have a Little Faith in Me #LoveU #lLoveMe #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #StayTheCourse

Introduction

“Dear God," she prayed, "let me be something every minute of every hour of my life. Let me be gay; let me be sad. Let me be cold; let me be warm. Let me be hungry...have too much to eat. Let me be ragged or well dressed. Let me be sincere - be deceitful. Let me be truthful; let me be a liar. Let me be honorable and let me sin. Only let me be something every blessed minute. And when I sleep, let me dream all the time so that not one little piece of living is ever lost.” 

― Betty Smith

Have A Little Faith In Me"(3)

When the road gets dark
And you can no longer see
Just let my love throw a spark
And have a little faith in me

And when the tears you cry
Are all you can believe
Just give these loving arms a try
And have a little faith in me
And

[Chorus:]
Have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me
Have a little faith in me

When your secret heart
Cannot speak so easily
Come here darlin'
From a whisper start
To have a little faith in me

And when your back's against the wall
Just turn around and you will see
I will catch, i will catch your fall baby
Just have a little faith in me

[Chorus]

[Sung Over Fade:]
Well, I've been loving you for such a long time girl
Expecting nothing in return
Just for you to have a little faith in me
You see time, time is our friend
'Cause for us there is no end
And all you gotta do is have a little faith in me
I said I will hold you up, i will hold you up
Your love gives me strength enough
So have a little faith in me

Whiskey Kisses"(3)

Baby I know
There's no love like yours
But Lord knows sometimes I forget
Sure as angels have wings
There are some things
Too good to keep on sharing

So let's dust off the bottle
And pour it on ice
Lock all the doors
And turn down the lights
We can light up some candles
You can put your lips on mine
We can get drunk on some good old
Whiskey kisses tonight

Baby I pray everyday
That your love never runs dry
'Cause the love that you give
Is just like good whiskey
It only gets better with time

So let's dust off the bottle
And pour it on ice
Lock all the doors
And turn down the lights
We can light up some candles
You can put your lips on mine
We can get drunk on some good old
Whiskey kisses tonight

Bring on the hangover
We've been sober too long
Every once in a while
You just need something strong

So let's dust off the bottle
And pour it on ice
Lock all the doors
And turn down the lights
We can light up some candles
You can put your lips on mine
We can get drunk on some good old
Whiskey kisses tonight

"Lucky Man(3)


Here you come again with your sweet sweet smile
Here you come again for a little while
Here you come again with your deep brown eyes
Here you come again and I realize

What a lucky man I must be
What a lucky man to have you here with me
What a lucky man just to see your face
There ain't nothing about you ever out of place

Your mom cried tears of joy when you were born
You were the rose among our thorns
And though I was so far away
I'll make it up to you some day

What a lucky man I must be
What a lucky man to have you here with me
What a lucky man just to see your face
There ain't nothing about you that's ever out of place

Here you come again, each passing day
I watch you grow along the way
I thought that you should have this song
I hope some day you will sing along

What a lucky man I must be
What a lucky man to have you here with me
What a lucky man just to see your face
There ain't nothing about you that's ever out of place

My words, my thoughts, my language...

Peace as always
Diana


I am having some dark days, however my focus is on the path I can barely see... so deeply in love with you my sugar.

"After All Is Said And done" Sung By #Beyonce and #MarcNelson. #MusicVideo #Photography #DianaMarySharpton #NeedU #AllTheTime

"Single Pink Rose in the Sun" Diana MarySharpton Copyright 2019

Introduction:

People who lack the clarity, courage, or determination to follow their own dreams will often find ways to discourage yours. Live your truth and don't EVER stop!” 

― Steve Maraboli

The song being featured this evening is titled "After All Is Said And done"(2). Sung by a brilliant and talented duet, Beyonce and Marc Nelson. This song is the third track in the movie soundtrack titled "The Best Man" which was released in October 1999. 

"After All Is Said And done" is romantic ballad which fits in with my mood this afternoon, January 1, 2019. No reason other than I love their gentle and tender rhyme. Well on second thought, seems to fit with my image of this pink rose.

I hope everyone has a blessed year. 2018 was a difficult one me. I was laid off, went on unemployment; however on the bright side I learned a lot about myself. The main thing is not to have fear, it will all work out.

The video was published by Avieno Williams on March 16, 2012

In the kingdom of glass everything is transparent, and there is no place to hide a dark heart.” 
― Vera Nazarian

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

"After All Is Said And Done(3)


[Beyonce]
Here I am
Looking in the mirror
An open face, the pain erased
Now the sky is clearer
I can see the sun
Now that all is, all is said and done, oh

[Marc]
There you are
Always strong when I need you
You let me give
And now I live, fearless and protected
With the one I will love
After all is, all is said and done

[Beyonce (Marc)]
I once believed that hearts were made to bleed
(Inside I once believed that hearts were made to bleed, oh baby)
But now I'm not afraid to say

[Beyonce & Marc]
I need you, I need you so stay with me

[Beyonce (Marc)]
These precious (precious) hours (yeah)
Greet each dawn in open arms
And dream, into tomorrow

[Beyonce & Marc]
Where there's only love
After all is, all is said and done

[Beyonce (Marc)]
(Yeah baby) Oh baby
(Inside I once believed, that hearts were meant to bleed)

[Beyonce & Marc (Marc)]
(I'll never)
I'll never be afraid to say
I need you, I need you, so here

[Beyonce]
So here we are in the still of this moment
Fear is gone, hope lives on

[Beyonce & Marc (Beyonce)]
We found our happy ending
For there's only love (only love)
And this sweet, sweet love
After all is, all is said and done

[Marc (Beyonce)]
Yeah baby after all is (all is)

[Marc & Beyonce]
All is said and done

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
