“Time Machine” Bring Me To Where I Want To Be, So I Can Be With Thee.

I don’t have many words to say about this song. It’s emotional. Maybe it could use a rewrite, but that is where a good co writer should come in. I mean, you can count on me to chop down a good walking path through the forest so we can get to the other side, but if you want to take the scenic route, then you need to carve out your own path. LOL.
Just sayin’.

“Take Me Home,” I Know You’ve Always Loved Me, I Was Just Stupid.

Have you ever experienced being close friends with someone that wants to be more than a friend, but you just don’t see the potential for something more or you are afraid of ruining the friendship?

Mary J. Blige is the Queen of Hip Hop Soul, Does My Lyric Express That?

One morning I was reading articles about Mary J. Blige’s current divorce dilemma, and I also read articles and watched video interviews about her life and her thoughts and opinions, and then I started listening to her music. I was feeling her pain, but I was also recognizing her strength and talent. How dare any man try to take her for everything that she has. Coming from where she came from and building herself into the “Queen of Hip Hop Soul” has nothing to do with Kendu. So, starting from a poem and then turned into a lyric, this is my gift to Mary J. Blige. Now, if only she knew I existed. LOL!
