"Whats Going On" #TeddySwims #itsthetime #itstheviolence #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #WhereIsMySunrise #INeedU #Try


“lean in to kiss me in all the places where the ache is the most special.” 

― Sanober Khan

The song being featured this evening is titled "What's Going On"(2). One of the more popular Marvin Gaye songs which is sung by a talented artist with brilliant vocals, Teddy Swims.

The video, published on Jun 4, 2020 by Teddy Swims, is a soul genre. I am adding a little verse titled "Tenderness".

I am sure you all are distressed with the world events as of lately. It definitely has effected me. The news media is the very worst of it all, they are trying to develop a narrative to influence political changes they endorse. Supposedly this is the choice of the American voter.

Feeling trapped in a pandemic, in a state, in a country, in a lock-down enduring a violence that I must flee from to keep my sanity. 

This violence started in 2016 with an investigation claiming the current president was associated with the Russians. At the end of the day, it was all a HOAX, as was the impeachment that followed. Then three months of lock down due to a virus that came from China, the economic fall out and now riots. I just want to leave. Listen to some good music watching the sunset in a faraway place... brokenhearted today.

Beautiful rendition of Marvin Gayes' "Whats Going On" sung by Teddy Swims. I highly recommend you take a minute to check it out!.


I missed that song at the doorway of sunrise
So, clouds slowly darken as a day went awry
Was it my turn or did you just forget?
Seems like lately we’ve lost an intricate step

The dance is everything as you well know
Thinking out loud, you, I love; I’ll never let go
All those fluctuations in the “River's” stream
Makes fish crazy enough they want to scream

Hiding from change; not wanting to blink
Be it ridiculous to most; however few might think
Life without a morning song will always be incomplete
Today be it late; yet still in time with tenderness it’s sent

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

"What's Going On(4)

Marvin Gaye

Mother, mother
There's too many of you crying
Brother, brother, brother
There's far too many of you dying
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today, eh eh
Father, father
We don't need to escalate
You see, war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today, oh oh oh
Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
Talk to me, so you can see
Oh, what's going on
What's going on
Yeah, what's going on
Ah, what's going on
In the mean time
Right on, baby
Right on brother
Right on babe
Mother, mother, everybody thinks we're wrong
Oh, but who are they to judge us
Simply 'cause our hair is long
Oh, you know we've got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today
Oh oh oh
Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
C'mon talk to me
So you can see
What's going on
Yeah, what's going on
Tell me what's going on
I'll tell you what's going on, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Right on baby
Right on baby
