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

Day 2 – Love Quotes

So it is day 2 of the Love quotes by Black Artists.  I have picked another song with the same title.  That’s right, The Truth.  This one is by India Arie.  One of my favorites lines….

There ain’t no substitute for the truth
Either it is or it isn’t
‘Cause he is the truth
You see the truth it needs no proof
Either it is or it isn’t
‘Cause he is the truth
And you know the truth by the way it feels

The Truth
I just relate to this because we all know when something isn’t right. When something feels wrong, we always have that gut feeling.

Today I nominate the following 3 bloggers:

A perfectly flawed ruby

SIMPLE DIMPLE

My random musings

I have also copied the lyrics to this song below.

Let me tell you why I love him

Cause he is the truth
Said he is so real
And I love the way that he makes me feel
And if I am a reflection of him
Then I must be fly
Cause his light, it shines so bright
I wouldn’t lie, no

I remember the very first day that I saw him
I found myself immediately intrigued by him
It’s almost like I knew this man from another life
Like back then maybe I was his husband
Maybe he was my wife
And even the things I don’t like about him are fine with me
Cause it’s not hard for me to understand him
Cause he’s so much like me
And it’s truly my pleasure to share his company
And I know it’s God’s gift to breathe the air he breathes

Cause he is the truth
Said he is so real
And I love the way that he makes me feel
And if I am a reflection of him
Then I must be fly
Because his light, it shines so bright
I wouldn’t lie, no

Oh
How can the same man that makes me so mad
(do you know what he did??)
Turn right around and kiss me so soft
(girl, you know what he did?)
If he ever left me I wouldn’t even be sad, no
‘Cause there’s a blessing in every lesson
And I’m glad that I know him at all

Cause he is the truth
Said he is so real
And I love the way that he makes me feel
And if I am a reflection of him
Then I must be fly
Because his light, it shines so bright

I love the way he speaks
I love the way he thinks
I love the way that he treats his mama
I love that gap in between his teeth
Love him in every way that a woman can love a man
From personal
To universal
But most of all it’s unconditional
You know what I’m talking about?

That’s the way I feel
And I always will
There ain’t no substitute for the truth
Either it is or it isn’t
‘Cause he is the truth
You see the truth it needs no proof
Either it is or it isn’t
‘Cause he is the truth
And you know the truth by the way it feels
And if I am a reflection of him
Then I must be fly
Because he is, yes he is (fly, light, bright)
I wonder does he know
