Lyrics

Well, you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill, but you're so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks
Now I'm trying to get back

Before the cool done run out
I'll be giving it my bestest
And nothing's gonna stop me but divine intervention.
I reckon, it's again my turn
To win some or learn some.

But I won't hesitate
No more, no more.
It cannot wait,
I'm yours.

Well, open up your mind and see like me,
Open up your plans and damn you're free.
Look into your heart and you'll find love, love, love, love.
Listen to the music of the moment, people dance and sing, we're just one big family
And it's our God-forsaken right to be loved, loved, loved, loved, loved

So I won't hesitate
No more, no more.
It cannot wait,
I'm sure.
There's no need to complicate.
Our time is short.
This is our fate,
I'm yours.

Do you want to come on, scooch on over closer, dear
And I will whisper in your ear

I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and I laughed.

I guess what I'll be saying is there ain't no better reason
To rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons.
It's what we aim to do.
Our name is our virtue.

But I won't hesitate
No more, no more.
It cannot wait,
I'm yours.

Well, open up your mind and see like me,
Open up your plans and damn you're free.
Look into your heart and you'll find that the sky is yours.
So please don't, please don't, please don't...
There's no need to complicate.
'Cause our time is short.
This oh, this oh, this is our fate.
I'm yours.

Oh, I'm yours
Oh, I'm yours
Oh, oh,
Baby, do you believe, I'm yours?
You best believe, you best believe, I'm yours.

  1. I am old enough to be your grandpa from the look of things but i agree with you it is easy to be psyched about this song.... I just noticed in my 2 tera-bytes of Dls of music that i actually did not have any Jason Mraz and I have been trying to correct that for the last two days looking for this album 'steal things' (dont even get me started on discoverying i didnt have Norah Jones except for about 3 vids) I am old old school and we have this psychological problem that we grew up either giving most of our money to record companies, or being envious of our friends collections.... so shoot me i DL everything that i used to want from the last 100 years (oh lord Billie Holiday i wish i had been my dad's age so i could have dated you)...
    Anyway with Thanksgiving coming up i said "hmm i need a good song so when me and my cousin show up at my sisters we got a good song to play" I began thinking about this song... looked at the chords (it is so easy to play!!! 4 chords and repeat)...
    ..So my whole point is: I thank you for this song, i dont really want the vid, in fact i am not DLing anything here, I am old old school, i want the album!
    But u got good taste kid (so do i)
    if u r in the USA remember to vote for Hillary(Obama trusts her to carry the torch), one thing they really have proven about Trump is that when he accuses someone of something it is because he is trying to protect himself from being found out... He accuses people of doing what he is most guilty of, when he says the election is rigged it means he has rigged it somehow, we need people to vote to beat the Trump rig.

A small, impoverished family invades the lives of members of another well-to-do family, but soon comes to a shocking revelation that puts their own work of deception to shame

Rating: 5/5
Parasite is the first Korean movie to ever win the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. It has also been nominated for an Academy Award, won the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film (2020) and won the SAG Awards for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture (2020).

One of the things I find so great about this movie is the number and sheer quality of plot twists that were part of it. So important were these plot twists, that the director, Bong Joon-Ho, intentionally excluded a great chunk of the filming from the trailer and issued a…

WHY I SPENT THREE MONTHS READING ONE BOOK

When I got this book in February, I had no idea it would take me this long to finish. I hadn’t even heard about the book before, as it was published over 10 years ago, when I would have been to young to appreciate it. However, I was book shopping, and two things attracted me to it. First- that it was written by one of my favourite Nigerian authors, Helon Habila; and secondly, that it won the Caine Prize, which is a pretty big deal if you ask me.

Mamo and LaMamo, twins born in Northern Nigeria are raised mostly by their aunt, and partly by their father. Each followed a very different path from the other, having contrasting personalities. While the one is outspoken and radical, the other is more reserved and intuitive. LaMamo goes off to war; Mamo is held back by sickness. The long separation makes the brothers respect and admire each other’s differences.

Each twin finds himself held down by something that proved not to be what it seemed. LaMamo wants to fight, to be a patriot, yet wha…
