The attention may cease
The likes may die down
The crowd may not exist
Yet I will go on
The time will change
The “ins” will be “outs”
The sound may not be heard
Yet I will go on;
In life there’s a constant
Time and change,
In me there’s a passion
Love and Courage;
No defeat can rid it
No fear can supress it
So as time bring about change
And as “ins” go to “outs”
And shouts fade away
I won’t, IT won’t;
I will forever go on…
I am convinced that I have been given the oppurtunity to create my life, you do know that’s an oppurtunity right?
Hey I know you really don’t care
You see I’m sure there are so many others
SCREAMING what they want out of you,
But listen not that I think I’m different
Not that at all, not that I should get what I desire
Just hoping if I didn’t scream it I just whispered, ”I’m tired”,
Hoping that you will see pass my exterior
See what I’ve been through and how I’m feeling,
You’ll honor my request as I whisper, "Make it easy"
Hoping that as you look in my eyes
You’ll see my strength yet yeild to my weakness
With understanding as I whisper, “I can’t”
I’m not expecting you to care
Not expecting anything out of you at all,
Yet I’ll whisper “Just let me be if only for Today”,
Now tomorrow will be better
Just as sure as it always is, at least I hope so
“But until then ”, I whisper to you
It’s You written and song by me
A meaning you should always remember, no one will love you like you love YOU!
While all along I had been traveling this road looking to create something big!
Well one day I decided to slow things down and step away, because some where along my travel I lost something very important.
I don’t know if it was the decisions I had made, I don’t know if it was the lack of balance in all I set out to do but I felt disconnected from me.
So, I slowed down and began to re-evaluate the steps I took, the path I am on and the reasons of any of this… well I’m still evaluating ha!
But something happen in the midst of all this I heard a voice and it begin to lead me towards the small things I’ve over looked, and the pieces I took for granted because they were so much smaller than what I thought I set out to do.
Just stumble upon this again #smile #encouraging #sincere #tbt … Thanks @srmajette
I loved her vocals they were sexy, soft and profound! She inspired me to embrace my tom boy style back then and she was such a beautiful woman with a beautiful smile!
Some of my favorite songs by her are: One in Million, Back & Forth, 4 Page Letter, Age ain’t Nothing but a Number, I care for you, It’s Whatever, How Could the One I gave my Heart to, Are you that somebody…
The scary attachment that comes with being a well known artist with such a beautiful light that radiates through your music and your being, is that people attach theirselves to it. They almost feel like they know “you" and not you the "artist" but really know "you" because the music is so relatable and beliveable. So when she pass I didn’t want to believe it; unfortunate news and a very sad day.
Listening to the sounds and style of music right now in 2013, speakes volumes about the music she delivered in the 90’s! It’s defintely proof that she was an artist that was ahead of time when it came down to her sound!
A life gone too soon… ~RIP Aaliyah~
