I Follow Rivers To The Sea

Passageways

This song came back into my life the other day at work. I think I literally screamed "Hallelujah! You give me life!" and for the rest of the day I was happy. This song for various reasons.....the lyrics, the voice, the beat, the flow, the shit just came togther perfectly which is why it's called:

"Lykke Li - I Follow Rivers (The Magician Remix) "

The song cranks! The song is hot.

And to top it off, it was complimented by a video that was done with the cinematography, storyline, acting, and clearly direction in just as much magic. I feel a sense of passion and creativity was given to these geniuses.

 

Destined Diva Duet

This is one of the most beautiful duets captured ever. I love a good duet.

Music: Ca me fait de l'effet.

It makes an impression on me. 

Soul Music. The past week's Soul Train Awards hosted by Erykah Badu, honoring BabyFace was an unforgettable show for me. It brought me back to my roots, and gave me a greater understanding of the power and influence that music really brings to various cultures.

Music that has me feeling good in some type of way lately.

Never Let Me Go

 

"Never Let Me Go"

Looking up from underneath
Fractured moonlight on the sea
Reflections still look the same to me
As before I went under

And it's peaceful in the deep
Cathedral where you cannot breathe
No need to pray, no need to speak
Now I am under all

And it's breaking over me
A thousand miles down to the sea bed
Found the place to rest my head
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go

And the arms of the ocean are carrying me
And all this devotion was rushing out of me
And the crashes are heaven for a sinner like me
But the arms of the ocean delivered me

Though the pressure's hard to take
It's the only way I can escape
It seems a heavy choice to make
And now I am under all

And it's breaking over me
A thousand miles down to the sea bed
Found the place to rest my head
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go

And the arms of the ocean are carrying me
And all this devotion was rushing out of me
And the crashes are heaven for a sinner like me
But the arms of the ocean delivered me

And it's over
And I'm going under
But I'm not giving up
I'm just giving in

I'm slipping underneath
So cold and so sweet

And the arms of the ocean so sweet and so cold
And all this devotion I never knew at all
And the crashes are heaven for a sinner released
And the arms of the ocean delivered me
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go
Deliver me
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go
Deliver me
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go
Deliver me
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go
Never let me go

And it's over
(Never let me go, Never let me go)
And I'm going under
(Never let me go, Never let me go)
But I'm not giving up
(Never let me go, Never let me go)
I'm just giving in
(Never let me go, Never let me go)

I'm slipping underneath
(Never let me go, Never let me go)
So cold and so sweet
(Never let me go, Never let me go)

UNBREAKABLE

I hear Michael in her.

"Unbreakable"

Set one
I live through my mistakes
It’s just a part of growing
And never for a single moment
Did I ever go without your love
You made me feel wanted
I wanna tell you how important
You are to me, love

Truth is, truth is that I wouldn’t be here
Without the love I stand on
Anytime I get lost in the world
You’ll always be there
To care and share
In the joy and the pain, oh
Our love won’t change

And what I share with you
Ever sacred, everlasting
The greatest love for me
I love you
And it’s pure
And it will endure
The world can’t break down
The connection
Cause our love is divine
And it’s unbreakable

Faithful love that I will always keep first
My heart will never be hurt
Family that walks through fire for me
So I don’t get burnt
Fans and friends chime in
To a love that’s true blue
I dedicate my love to you

And what I share with you
Ever sacred, everlasting
The greatest love for me
I love you
And it’s pure
And it will endure
The world can’t break down
The connection
Cause our love is devine
And it’s unbreakable
Ever sacred, everlasting
The greatest love for me
I love you
And it’s pure
And it will endure
The world can’t break down
The connection
Cause our love is divine
And it’s unbreakable

Cause our love is defined
And it’s unbreakable
Cause our love is defined
And it’s unbreakable
Cause our love is defined
And it’s unbreakable
Love

(I found a friend)
Hello
(I found a friend)
It’s been a while
(I found a friend)
Lot’s to talk about
(I found a friend)
I’m glad you’re still here
(I dedicate myself to you)
I hope you enjoy

This Album is Fire

 

They say live within the moment
Cause there's nothing else but now
But I'm sleepless and it's over
So somebody show me how

I can get back to a feeling
That existed in the past
Find somebody with some meaning
Try to equal what we had

I wanna go
All the way, all the way
All the way back...
All the way, all the way
All the way

All I really need
Is time travel and you
Don't know what this is
We're travelling through
All the memories
Unravel with you
So all I really need
Is time travel
And you...
And you...

It's the silence that will save us
Now all too much has been said
We no longer know the people
That we cling to on the bed

Is it beyond reparation?
Does this have to be the end?
In an alternate dimension
Maybe we could start again

I wanna go
All the way, all the way
All the way back...
All the way, all the way
All the way

All I really need
Is time travel and you
Don't know what this is
We're travelling through
All the memories
Unravel with you
All I really need
Is time travel
All I really need
Is time travel
All I really need
Is time travel

Monument Movement

ROYKSOPP LYRICS

"Monument"
(with Robyn)

Make a space
For my body.
Dig a hole.
Push the sides apart.
This is what
I'm controlling.
It's a moat
The inside that I carve.

This will be my monument
This will be a beacon when I'm gone
Gone, gone
When I'm gone
Gone, gone
When I'm gone

So that when the moment comes,
I can say I did it all with love
Love, love
All with love
Love, love
All with love

Make a cast
Of my body.
Pull back out,
So that I can see.
Let go of
How you knew me.
Let go of
What I used to be.

I will let this monument
Represent a moment of my life
Life, life
Of my life
Life, life
Of my life

Whatcha gonna do with that heart?

When I lose myself in you
And you offer me some time
When its all been said and done
And you might reconsider it

And things are they don’t regret
Through eyes of precious days
But it’s all forgiven and done

She wanted to make it right
But it’s all been done in grave
And when you’re all forgiven and done
And you ought to make it right

Whatcha gonna do with that heart
Whatcha gonna do with that heart

She's Back!!!! #coversationsInACafe

I wonder if her album is going to be more romantic, nostalgic, political or fresh. I hope it's a mixture of her life's influences personally. She's always approached her work as a journal, which made it souful, honest, and timeless. I've missed her voice and her style greatly.

I'd imagine, her time away has given her the raw means to manifest as an artist, the time to evolve, and grow in peace and solitude. I don't expect a top of the charts Pop Song and quite frankly, I could care less about any of that. I'm more interested in Janet being Janet....I want rhythm, sweetness, fun, sexy, intelligence, substance, spirituality, strength, a doorway to her world and the movement she speaks of. 

Janet has an essence of "je ne sais quoi" about herself, a mystery, truth, and simplicity that makes me feel so connected to her. Michael had the same quality. This will be her first album since Michael's death and her marriage to Wissam Al Mana
