I Don’t Want to Bore You With It…

“Oh but I love you, I love you….
I LOOOOVVVEE YOU!” 

So I’ve been posting the love quotes from songs by black artists the last 3 days but I started enjoying it so I thought why not continue a few more days?  Valentines day, which is also my son’s 18th birthday, is only 4 days away. Wait, what? Wow that is coming up fast! 
Well, anyways I wanted to pick some classic artists, so I decided on Stevie. (Wonder, in case you were Wondering and yes, pun intended!)  Oh but how do you pick one of Stevie’s songs?? I mean… you don’t!  He just has so many amazing songs!  Well, I had to remember I was picking a quote from the lyrics, which made it even harder!!   But I really do love this one:

We lay beneath the stars
Under a lovers tree that’s seen through the eyes of my mind
I reach out for the part
Of me that lives in you that only our two hearts can find

I mean I really love the whole song, along with most of Stevie’s music.  When I sing along I feel like you really have to belt it out! Which i usually do… alone… in my car…. as not to scare people.  Lol.  He really is Wonderful, isn’t he? Check out the video by clicking on the link or read the lyrics below.  Or let me know your favorite Stevie song!

Knocks Me Off My Feet

Lyrics
I see us in the park
Strolling the summer days of imaginings in my head
And words from our hearts
Told only to the wind felt even without being said
I don’t want to bore you with my trouble
But there’s somethin ’bout your love
That makes me weak and
Knocks me off my feet
There’s sumptin ’bout your love
That makes me weak and
Knocks me off my feet
Knocks me off my feet

I don’t want to bore you with it
Oh but I love you, I love you, I love you
I don’t want to bore you with it
Oh but I love you, I love you, I love you
More and more
We lay beneath the stars
Under a lovers tree that’s seen through the eyes of my mind
I reach out for the part
Of me that lives in you that only our two hearts can find
But I don’t want to bore you with my trouble
But there’s sumptin ’bout your love
That makes me weak and
Knocks me off my feet
But there’s sumptin ’bout your love
That makes me weak and
Knocks me off my feet

I don’t want to bore you with it
Oh but I love you, I love you, I love you
I don’t want to bore you with it
Oh but I love you, I love you, I love you
I don’t want to bore you with it
Oh but I love you, I love you, I love you
Darling I don’t want to bore you with it
Oh but I love you, I love you, I love you
I don’t’ want to bore you with it
Oh but I love you, I love you, I love you
Darling I don’t want to bore you with it

3 Day quote challenge with a twist!

So I was nominated by Tikeetha for the 3 day quote.  I follow her blog and I really enjoy it, check her out!  She did love quotes and I think I am going to switch it up and incorporate Black History Month and Valentine’s Day for this.  I’m also going to take quotes from song lyrics because, hey, love songs have great quotes too!  So each day I will post a song, highlight the line I love and post the video as well.  They will all be love songs by Black artists for Black History month.  Then I will nominate 3 bloggers each day to do the same.  (Only you can just post quotes, nothing fancy.  Although I think they should either pertain to love for Valentine’s day or they should pertain to Black History Month…but that’s my two cents)

So the first Quote is from one of my favorite Black Male artists, Anthony Hamilton.  If you don’t know him, you should definintly check him out.  I love his voice, his music, and his lyrics.  One of my favorite songs by him is called “The Truth”.   See the video here: 
The Truth
My favorite line from this song is

” Compromise, try and see eye to eye, 

Cause love’s not blind, it knows when you care”

This is so true.  I hope you enjoy this song.  Also, if you are interested you can find the lyrics below.

I nominate the following 3 bloggers for the 3 Day Quote Challenge. All you have to do is post a quote for 3 days and each day you nominate 3 other bloggers to post a quote.

So look for another love song, quote and Black Artist tomorrow.  Oh and check out the lyrics below. 😆

“The Truth”

You must feel safe when you fall in love
Equal in the time you and I share together
Compromise, try and see eye to eye
Cause love’s not blind, it knows when you care
Always kiss your lady, tell her that you love her,
Pray and make a baby, that was made to love
Show her she’s important, bring flowers for her,
And build on the truth (build on the truth)

If you take a little walk with me (walk with me)
Girl I’ll lead you to the truth (girl, I’ll lead you, lead you)
And if you never give up on me (give up on me)
Girl, I’ll share it all with you (Girl, I’ll share it all)
Show directions when I’ve lost my way (lost my way)
I’ll be around to stay (I’ll be around) to show you the truth, truth

If you trust me, I’ll make sure to build you up, through all your dreams
You and I will go together
Forget your past, the love you had that never last
God knew your heart and I was made for you
Girl, I won’t mistreat you, never
Always make love to you
Go to church together, even get baptized too
We can read the bible (read the bible)
Play mom father
This marriage is true (oh)

If you take a little walk with me (walk with me)
Girl I’ll lead you to the truth (girl, I’ll lead you, lead you)
And if you never give up on me (give up on me)
Girl, I’ll share it all with you (Girl, I’ll share it all)
Show directions when I’ve lost my way (lost my way)
I’ll be around to stay (I’ll be around) to show you the truth, truth (x2)
