Love Is In Da Blog 17 ~ A Love Song from 2019 – “Changed”

Full disclosure – I do not listen to the radio. I get all of my music on iHeartRadio and all my stations are either country or contemporary Christian. I often will not hear a song until it is released onto iHeartRadio even if the song came out in  the previous year. My song today did hit the airwaves in mid 2018 but I just recently heard it. It is Jordan Feliz’s “Changed”.

This song is a constant reminder that through the love and grace of God,the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous and the unending love of Cruz, my family and friends – I am CHANGED and can remain so!!!

For your viewing pleasure a LIVE performance!

LYRICS

Let me tell you, oh my friends
About this joy I’m living in
Let me take the mic, I wanna testify
How I was dead, and then I came to life
No more living in the dark of night, now everything’s all right

I’ve been cha-a-anged
I’ve been saved
Brand new day, I’ve been changed
I’ve been changed
Tell me why would I turn back now
There’s no end to the love I’ve found
Future’s bright, and there ain’t no doubt
I’ve been changed, I’ve been changed

All my heartbreak fades away
Like a book when you turn the page
Let me take the mic, I wanna testify
How I was dead, and then I came to life
No more living in the dark of night, now everything’s all right

Ooh, ooh
I’ve been changed, he-ah

I put my hands in the air ‘cause I know You’re there
(Your love did something magical)
I put my hands in the air ‘cause You heard my prayer
(A transformation radical)
I put my hands in the air ‘cause I know You’re there
(I know it’s supernatural)
I put my hands in the air ‘cause You heard my prayer

Love Is In Da Blog 16 ~ A Love Song from 2009-2018 – “God Gave Me You”

This particular decade was probably the most difficult in our relationship because of my chronic relapses and returns to recovery. When Blake Shelton’s “God Gave Me You” came out in 2010 – I could have never imagined that it would be my anthem to Cruz. I know that because of him I am still here with all my fortitude and determination to work hard on my recovery.  

So for your viewing pleasure – “God Gave Me You” by Blake Shelton!!

Lyrics
I’ve been a walking heartache
I’ve made a mess of me
The person that I’ve been lately
Ain’t who I wanna be
But you stay here right beside me
Watch as the storm goes through
And I need you
‘Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
For when I think I’ve lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you, gave me you
There’s more here than what were seeing
A divine conspiracy
That you, an angel lovely
Could somehow fall for me
You’ll always be love’s great martyr
And I’ll be the flattered fool
And I need you, yeah
God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
For when I think I’ve lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you
On my own I’m only
Half of what I could be
I can’t do without you
We are stitched together
And what love has tethered
I pray we never undo
‘Cause God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
God gave me you for the ups and downs
God gave me you for the days of doubt
And for when I think I’ve lost my way
There are no words here left to say, it’s true
God gave me you, gave me you
He gave me you

Lyrics:

Every time our eyes meet
This feeling inside me
Is almost more than I can take
Baby when you touch me
I can feel how much you love me
And it just blows me away
I’ve never been this close to anyone or anything
I can hear your thoughts
I can see your dreams

I don’t know how you do what you do
I’m so in love with you
It just keeps getting better
I wanna spend the rest of my life
With you by my side
Forever and ever
Every little thing that you do
Baby I’m amazed by you

Lyrics

I’ll be your dream, I’ll be your wish, I’ll be your fantasy.
I’ll be your hope, I’ll be your love, be everything that you need.
I love you more with every breath, truly madly deeply do
I will be strong, I will be faithful ’cause I’m counting on a new beginning.
A reason for living. A deeper meaning.

I want to stand with you on a mountain.
I want to bathe with you in the sea.
I want to lay like this forever.
Until the sky falls down on me

And when the stars are shining brightly in the velvet sky,

I’ll make a wish send it to heaven then make you want to cry
The tears of joy for all the pleasure and the certainty.
That we’re surrounded by the comfort and protection of
The highest power, in lonely hours, the tears devour you

I want to stand with you on a mountain,
I want to bathe with you in the sea.
I want to lay like this forever,
Until the sky falls down on me

Oh can you see it baby?
You don’t have to close your eyes
‘Cause it’s standing right before you.
All that you need will surely come

I’ll be your dream, I’ll be your wish, I’ll be your fantasy.
I’ll be your hope, I’ll be your love, be everything that you need.
I’ll love you more with every breath, truly madly deeply do

I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea.
I want to lay like this forever.
Until the sky falls down on me

I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea.
I want to live like this forever.
Until the sky falls down on me

Lyrics – Culture Club 1984

You don’t have to touch it to know
Love is everywhere you go
You don’t have to touch it to feel
Love is every second we steal 
Love is love is nothing without you
Love is love is everything you do
Open up your eyes
And you will see
Love is love is everything to me 
You don’t have to touch it to be
Wrapped up in emotion like me
Everyone must feel how I do, yeah
Love is just to be close to you 
Love is love is nothing without you
Love is love is everything you do
Open up your eyes
And you will see
Love is love is everything to me 
And you know that love is love
It’s written in black and blue
And everything you say
Must bring her closer, closer to you
Ba-ba (ooh), ba-ba (ooh), ba-ba (ooh) 
You don’t have to touch it to know
Love is everywhere that you go
You don’t have to touch it to feel
Love is every second we steal 
Love is love is nothing without you
Love is love is everything you do
Open up your eyes
And you will see
Love is love is everything to me 
Love is love is nothing without you
Love is love is everything you do
That’s what’s in “My Rattled Cage”, thanks for stopping by!!

Love Is In Da Blog 12 ~ A Love Song from 1969-1978 & Prompt Post for February 13th

 

There are always remakes of songs and movies and most the time the remakes suck. I am aware that Whitney Houston’s version of this song for the soundtrack of The Bodyguard was extremely successful and hit number one again after her death.  For me, in 1974 the ORIGINAL  Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You” has been and will always be my favorite. This song was written by Dolly as tribute to Dolly’s longtime music partner the legendary country music star Porter Wagoner as she was setting out on her solo career.

So, for your viewing pleasure I present:

Dolly Parton with “I Will Always Love You” link to the video.
