Love Fest – MMMM

Here we are, the last day of February.  Show of hands on who’s hoping March brings some amazing Spring Weather?  While I love winter and snow, Mother Nature has been stingy in giving us the pretty stuff this year, making the winter months so drab and weary.  I for one am looking forward to Spring bringing new growth and  prettying the place up around here.

Since it’s the final day of February, Monday’s Music Moves Me has been celebrating Love all month – so today is the final hurrah.  Not the final hurrah for love, just this month’s theme.  In case you were wondering.  Since I have an eclectic taste in music, I thought I’d find a few videos for your eclectic enjoyment.

We’ll start off with one of my favorite Country artists, – I love that she has such a unique voice, you always know it’s her when her songs come on the radio.   Enjoy!


I Keep On Loving You Lyrics
Reba

Love takes the patience of Job
That’s what my Mama always said
Faith is the belief in something more than what you know
That’s what the Good Book says
You gotta play the cards you got
Who knows what fate is holding
At times you gotta go without knowing where you’re going

That’s why I keep on lovin’ you
I keep on lovin’ you
Through the baby don’t leave me
And never will again
And I promise to
I keep on lovin’ you

Lord knows we’ve had our share of fights
Our sleepless nights, our ups and downs
We’ve had plenty and then some of baby I’m gone and turnarounds
Sometimes I swear it might be easier to throw in the towel
Someday we’re gonna look back
Say look at us now

That’s why I keep on lovin’ you
I keep on lovin’ you
Through the baby don’t leave me
And never will again
And I promise to
I keep on lovin’ you

Keep on lovin’ you
Through the I take it backs…I didn’t mean it like that
I’d never hurt you…Oh, I keep on lovin’ you

I keep on lovin’ you…I keep on lovin’ you
Through the I take it backs…I didn’t mean it like that
I’d never hurt you…Oh, I keep on lovin’ you
I keep on lovin’ you…I keep on lovin’ you

Next up is a new song from First Love:

First Love Lyrics
Boyz II Men

[verse 1]
the last kiss we shared, tasted like a wine
sweet and bitter like, our memories
and i long for you to, come right back to me
tomorrow the time will be the same as today
nothing goes on in my heart except your memories
where will you be, and who will you think of…!

[chorus]
you were always gonna be my love
and you should know
even if i fall in love with somebody else
I’ll remember to love you taught me how
you were always gonna be the one
and for now, I’ll still be singing this love song
for… somebody like you
my first love…

[verse 2]
time after time, baby i tried to forget our life together
but the memories are so so hard to let go
tomorrow the time will be the same as today
trying to hold back the tears when thinking of you
all i want is to be with you once more…!

[chorus 2]
you will always be inside my heart
and you should know
that i wish that i could ever let you go
i know that i love you [?]
Now and forever see the one
and for now, I’ll still be singing this love song
for… somebody like you
my first love…

[chorus]
you were always gonna be my love
and you should know
even if i fall in love with somebody else
I’ll remember to love you to hell
you were always gonna be the one
I’ll still be singing this love song
for… somebody like you
my first love…

.

has been around forever, and after a long wait, she’s just released a new love song, “Secret Love“:

Secret Love Lyrics
Stevie Nicks

Come on it’s time to go upstairs
But I don’t want to be leaving you here
I can’t go be in that room alone
When I know that you’re down here in tears
I’m not asking “forever” from you
I’m just asking to be held for awhile
In a timeless search for love that might work
Still we’re already paying the price
But you need some rest
My darling, it’s best
But we’ve already passed it, I cried
Ooohee…
Listen to me
My secret love secretly
Died
Come on it’s time to go upstairs
But I don’t want to be leaving you here
I can’t go be in that room alone
When I know that you’re down here in tears
I’m not asking “forever” from you

I’m just asking to be held for awhile
In a timeless search for love that might work
Still we’re already paying the price
But you need some rest
My darling, it’s best
But we’ve already passed it, I cried
Ooohee..
Listen to me
My secret love secretly
Died
Oh, you need some rest
Oh, you need some rest
My darling, it’s best
Ooh…
My secret love secretly
Secretly died
.

And finally, another new one – this one from another of my favorite groups, , “Far Away“:

“Far Away”

This time, This place
Misused, Mistakes
Too long, Too late
Who was I to make you wait
Just one chance
Just one breath
Just in case there’s just one left
‘Cause you know,
you know, you know

[CHORUS]
That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you’ll be with me
and you’ll never go
Stop breathing if
I don’t see you anymore

On my knees, I’ll ask
Last chance for one last dance
‘Cause with you, I’d withstand
All of hell to hold your hand
I’d give it all
I’d give for us
Give anything but I won’t give up
‘Cause you know,
you know, you know

[CHORUS]

So far away
Been far away for far too long
So far away
Been far away for far too long
But you know, you know, you know

I wanted
I wanted you to stay
‘Cause I needed
I need to hear you say
That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I forgive you
For being away for far too long
So keep breathing
‘Cause I’m not leaving you anymore
Believe it
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
‘Cause I’m not leaving you anymore
Believe it
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
Hold on to me and, never let me go

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.

  1. I *adore* Reba. I Keep On Loving You is a great vid because Reba looks gorgeous and there are lots of family/friends in the vid: three of Reba’s grandkids, Reba’s mother-in-law, Reba’s daughter-in-law, Reba’s son’s girlfriend, an actress friend of Reba’s (they met because their sons became friends when she moved to California), and an actor friend of Reba’s (he did Broadway with her and was in the Carnegie Hall concert of SOUTH PACIFIC). I would imagine it was a really fun shoot for her.

    By the way, Reba’s new music video for If I Were a Boy just premiered on Oprah.com:

  3. These are all wonderful Love Songs to wind up our theme. You can’t get much more thank Reba & especially Boys to Men & Stevie Nicks all of these are perfect! Don’t forget to come over & sign our linky! Have a contest going too. Check it out! Hugs Girlfriend thanks for playing, and have a great day!

  4. I listen to Reba too. Her songs are lovely. The wedding on I Keep on Loving You reminds me of myself long ago as a flower girl in an aunt’s wedding who could not keep still 🙂 Enjoyed First Love. BoyzII Men concert here in Bangkok was cancelled 🙁

    “I’m not asking forever from you” gosh, how did that line end up becoming the exact thing going on in my head for someone right now?! Great choices!

  5. OMG! I LOVED Boyz II Men when I was 16. I went to see them live and it was totally insane. It was the first “pop” concert I’d ever been to, so the screaming girls totally took me aback! lol.

  6. Great songs!
    And I’m hoping March brings wonderful weather and better luck! So far, I haven’t been the biggest fan of 2011.

  7. I love Reba. Great music choices. I am hoping that March brings nice warm spring weather too. But it probably won’t happen for a few more weeks up here since it is snowing today. Have a wonderful week!

  8. Wow. This is certainly an eclectic mix of music and I love it all. Great picks, mama!

    You’ll have to come to Florida. It’s spring here already and I’m loving every moment. I love sunny, flip-flop days.

    Thanks for the MM shout out. I appreciate all your support. 🙂

  9. I love the Reba song. She’s always been one of my favorites and you’re right… you can always tell it’s her immediately when you hear her songs.
