For Always and Forever

You will be my Saturday Love…

“When I look at you
Memories of love
Like no one before
You stay on my mind”

We all have that one person like this.  That one person that maybe you always had a thing for but it never quite worked out.  Maybe the timing was off.  They were single and you were taken, then they were taken and you were single.  Or maybe you did date them, maybe it was a first love, a young love, or just a Saturday love. 
Mine was actually more of a Sunday love.  Ok, it wasn’t really love, but I sure was crushing on him.  We would go to the same spot every Sunday and I knew I would run into him there.  He was a bit older than me and there was just something about him.  Maybe it was the eyes, or the smile, or the way he would rearrange the tables in the middle of the room to create a dance floor for us on a Sunday afternoon.  It could have been the way he made me forget my cares and who was watching and just act a fool in the middle of the bar.  It could have been the silly jokes and faces, the way he made me laugh, and the fun I always had when I was around him. 
I’m not sure how we fell out of touch but then again, we never really had anything more than those Sunday afternoons.  Years later I would run into him and find out the truth.  That I was young and naive and he had a love the whole time.  A love of addiction to drugs and alcohol.  He had turned his life around but I knew he had really never felt for me the way I felt for him.  And maybe I never really felt for him, but more for the idea of him.  The idea of who I thought he was and who I wanted him to be. 
Every now and again I wonder what he’s up to and if he is still around.  I looked him up one day not too long ago to see he is now married.  In my mind though, For always and forever, he will be my Sunday love. 

Alexander O’Neal and Cherrelle knew all about that.  Why, just check out the video here of Saturday Love.  Rather fitting, isn’t it?

(But my real Saturday Love is my girl Chanel.  She is my son’s and She was my roll dawg back when we were younger and would go out.  Had to throw that in)

And as always see the lyrics below.

Going to see you again
See you haven’t changed
It’s good to see you anyway

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday love
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday love

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday love
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday love

When I think about you
My feelings can’t explain
Why after all this time
My heart still feels pain

When I look at you
Memories of love
Like no one before
You’ll stay on my mind

(Special feelings, special time)
Always so special
(I was yours and you were mine)
Made for each other

(All the good I won’t forget)
You will stay on my mind
(Saturday, the day we met)

For always and for ever
You will be my Saturday love

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday love
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday love

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday love
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday love

When I think about you
My feelings can’t explain
Why after all this time
My heart still feels pain

When I look at you
Memories of love
Like no one before
You stay on my mind
(Special feelings, special times)
Feeling so special
(I was yours and you were mine)
Made for each other, girl

(All the good I won’t forget)
Staying on my mind, girl
(Saturday, the day we met)
Girl, you know I can’t leave you behind

There’s never any question
You will be my Saturday love

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday love
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday love

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday love
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday love

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday love
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday love

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday love
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Saturday love

When I look at you
Special feelings, special times
I thought we’d always be together
But sometimes things just
Don’t work out like we planned

Life goes on and people grow
Out of things that fit before
But Saturday remains the same
And I hope it’ll never change

For always and forever
You will be my, you will be my
You will be, be my Saturday love
Let’s sing it together

Never on Sunday, Monday’s too soon
Tuesday and Wednesday just won’t do
Thursday and Friday, we can begin
But our Saturday love will never end, sugar
