One of those days

Mostly dark with glimmers of happiness, maybe a little hope on the horizon.  Maybe singing and dancing will help.  I love Steve Winwood.  I used to borrow the Mr. Fantasy album from the public library back in the day.  Over and over and over.  Heh.  Who could keep from falling in love with a small midwestern library like that?!  Arc of a Diver would be one I'd want on a desert island; it speaks to me.  And oh, how I love this song.  Have you ever read the lyrics?

HIGHER LOVE

Think about it, there must be higher love
Down in the heart or hidden in the stars above
Without it, life is a wasted time
Look inside your heart, I'll look inside mine
Things look so bad everywhere
In this whole world, what is fair?
We walk blind and we try to see
Falling behind in what could be

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Where's that higher love I keep thinking of?

Worlds are turning and we're just hanging on
Facing our fear and standing out there alone
A yearning, and it's real to me
There must be someone who's feeling for me
Things look so bad everywhere
In this whole world, what is fair?
We walk blind and we try to see
Falling behind in what could be

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Where's that higher love I keep thinking of?

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Bring be a higher love
I could rise above on a higher love

I will wait for it
I'm not too late for it
Until then, I'll sing my song
To cheer the night along
Bring it... Oh bring it...

I could light the night up with my soul on fire
I could make the sun shine from pure desire
Let me feel that love come over me
Let me feel how strong it could be

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love
Where's that higher love I keep thinking of?

Oh me too, me too! I love Steve and Mr. Fantasy would be on my desert island! Here's to more happiness and less darkness.

I believe!

Lovelovelove that song!
How can it not speak to you?
Hope there's less darkness soon.

best song ever.

I hope everything's okay!

Higher Love has come on a few times since Meli's been born. Georgie loves to sing it to her and dance around.

Can't Find My Way Home will always be special to me.

Hey, what's going on? I love Steve Winwood. This is the song that has popped on the radio at several times in my life when I needed help making a decision or getting through a hard time:

Stand up in a clear blue morning
Until you see what can be
Alone in a cold day dawning
Are you still free
Can you be

When some cold tomorrow finds you
When some sad old dream reminds you
How the endless road unwinds you
While you see a chance take it
Find romance, fake it
Because it's all on you

Don't you know by now
No one gives you anything
Don't you wonder how you keep on moving
One more day
Your way
Ooooooooh, your way

[Instrumental Interlude]

When there's no one left to leave you
Even you don't quite believe you
That's when nothing can deceive you
While you see a chance take it
Find romance, fake it
Because it's all on you

Stand up in a clear blue morning
Until you see
What can be
Alone in a cold day dawning
Are you still free
Can you be

[Instrumental Interlude]

And that old gray wind is blowing
And there's nothing left worth knowing
And it's time you should be going

While you see a chance take it
Find romance
While you see a chance take it
Find romance
While you see a chance take it
Find romance
While you see a chance take it
Find romance
While you see a chance take it
Find romance

Yup, we all wanna know what's goin' on. Steve Winwood, and that particular song, is High School music for me.
