Hi Everyone,

I recently picked up Richard Marx's latest CD, just released in July 2014.  I listened to his song "Whatever We Started" and I thought of Gideon and Eva.

 

"Whatever We Started"

 

Hang up the phone, I'm alone
I'll unlock the door
Slip in, let all your clothes just fall
off you to the floor
Don't even make a sound or turn your mind around
There is only now.. for me and you

We cant stop whatever we started
Can't resist what's meant to be
Forget whatever we promised
I want you all over me
Let's do it now, don't think
Look in my eyes and don't blink
We can't stop whatever we started

Come over and I'll put my hands where I want to
End of the bed with my scent
still left on you
Baby don't pretend,
Could ever just be friends
After I have been.. inside of you

We cant stop whatever we started
Can't resist what's meant to be
Forget whatever we promised
I want you all over me
Let's do it now and don't think
Look in my eyes and don't blink
We can't stop whatever we started

Hang up the phone
I'm all alone
I'll unlock the door...

We cant stop whatever we started
(HohhhhhOhhhOhhh!)
Can't resist what's meant to be
Forget whatever we promised
(HohhhOhhhhOhhhh!)
I want you all over me
(All over)
Let's do it now and don't think
Look in my eyes and don't blink
(And don't...and don't)
We can't stop whatever we started

(HohhhOhhhOhhhh!)
(HohhhOhhhhOhhh!)


What does everyone think? If anyone gets a chance, take a listen to the song.  :)

Hi Everyone,

In honour of Sylvia's mention of Howie Day's Song "Collide"; here are the lyrics.

 

"Collide"

 

The dawn is breaking
A light shining through
You're barely waking
And I'm tangled up in you
Yeah

But I'm open, you're closed
Where I follow, you'll go
I worry I won't see your face
Light up again

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
[Regular version:] Out of the doubt that fills my mind
[Acoustic version:] Out of the doubt that fills your mind
I somehow find
You and I collide

I'm quiet you know
You make a first impression
Well, I've found I'm scared to know
I'm always on your mind

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the stars refuse to shine
Out of the back you fall in time
I somehow find
You and I collide

Don't stop here
I lost my place
I'm close behind

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills your mind
You finally find
You and I collide

You finally find
You and I collide
You finally find
You and I collide

 Jason Mraz - I Won’t Give Up Lyrics | MetroLyrics

 

When I look into your eyes

It's like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
There's so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you've come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

[CHORUS]

Well, I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up

And when you're needing your space
to do some navigating
I'll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

'Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We've got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it
no! i wont give up

I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use the tools and gifts
We got yeah we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn
We had to learn, how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what i got, and what i'm not
And who i am

[CHORUS]

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up
Still looking up

I won't give up (No I'm not) on us (Giving up)
God knows i'm tough enough (I am tough) (I am loved)
We got a lot (We're alive) to learn (We are loved)
God knows we're worth it (And we're worth it)

[CHORUS]

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm Still looking up

 

 

When you read "At the brightest time in our lives, darkness of his past encroached and threatened everything we'd worked so hard for." and think back on on their past together, this song seems to fit where Eva and Gideon are and are headed.

I love that Jason mraz song Betty:)

These two have been on the radio lately ... I think some of the lyric work for Gideon and Eva :

Rixton

Wait on me, I know how to love you

And I wanna love you some more

Wait on me,

Come a little closer

Wanna be the one to explore

A little trouble never hurt nobody

Oh I wanna feel your body

Wait on me, I know how to love you

And I wanna love you some more

Take it, take it I'll give my heart to you for free girl don't you break it, break it along with every piece of me, yeah

I'll go the distance but not all of the way

Say what you mean to me and mean what you say, yeah

I never wanna be your ex-man I'll never make you feel ignored

You can go and find your next man but I know what you're waiting for

Wait on me, I know how to love you

And I wanna love you some more

Wait on me

Come a little closer

Wanna be the one to explore

A little trouble never hurt nobody

Oh I wanna feel your body

Wait on me, I know how to love you

And I wanna love you some more, some more, some more

Oh, say it, say it I know there's something on your mind girl

And I hate it, hate it when you just act like you're okay

Yeah, I wanna be the one to know what you need

Yeah, I'll listen to your heart I know how it speaks

Yeah, I never wanna be your ex-man I'll never make you feel ignored

You can go and find your next man but I know what you're waiting for

Wait on me, I know how to love you

And I wanna love you some more

Wait on me

Come a little closer

Wanna be the one to explore

A little trouble never hurt nobody

Oh I wanna feel your body

Wait on me, I know how to love you

And I wanna love you some more, some more, some more

I wanna love you some more

Come closer, you know yeah, don't feel like before

I'll give you what you want, so you wanted more

In your head, in your heart like never before

If a good thing is what you're waiting for

Then don't you look no more

And

Nico & Vinz

"In Your Arms"

I feel like Superman

They gonna remember me

I think I know I can

Who says it's hard to reach

Who's gonna stop me on the road to success

I don't know

They tried to break me down

But I'm still on my feet

This city's full of life

So why is it hard to breathe

Oh why did God create this world so unfair

I don't know

Sometimes I feel like I can't run, I can't crawl

And sometimes I feel like I ain't nothing at all

Life is a journey where you stumble and fall

But I'm okay

When I lie down in your arms

Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]

When I lie down in your arms

Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]

When I lie down in your arms

I feel like moving back

Sometimes it's hard to dream

The life I chose is past

It's moving without me

Who doesn't want a machine so they can go back in time

I don't know

My time went by too fast

There's no one left but me

I've got a nine to five

And it gets the best of me

This is the life I'm gonna live to the end

But I'm okay

When I lie down in your arms

Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]

When I lie down in your arms

Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]

When I lie down in your arms

Sometimes I feel like I can't run, I can't crawl

And sometimes I feel like I ain't nothing at all

Life is a journey where you stumble and fall

But I'm okay

When I lie down in your arms

Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]

LIFEHOUSE LYRICS
"Hanging By A Moment"
 
Desperate for changing, starving for truth
I'm closer to where I started, I'm chasing after you
 
I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held on to
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you
 
Forgetting all I'm lacking, completely incomplete
I'll take your invitation, you take all of me now
 
I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held on to
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you
I'm living for the only thing I know
I'm running and not quite sure where to go
And I don't know what I'm diving into
Just hanging by a moment here with you
 
There's nothing else to lose, there's nothing else to find
There's nothing in the world that can change my mind
There is nothing else
There is nothing else
There is nothing else
 
Desperate for changing, starving for truth
I'm closer to where I started, I'm chasing after you
 
I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held on to
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you
I'm living for the only thing I know
I'm running and not quite sure where to go
And I don't know what I'm diving into
Just hanging by a moment here with you
 
Just hanging by a moment
Just hanging by a moment
I'm hanging by a moment
Just hanging by a moment here with you

I know this song is quoted on This Man series, but it always reminds me of Gideon and Eva:

 

Massive Attack - Angel

 

You are my angel

Come from way above
To bring me love

 

Her eyes
She's on the dark side
Neutralize
Every man in sight

 

Love you, love you, love you
Love you, love you, love you
Love you, love you, love you
...

You are my angel
Come from way above

 

Love you, love you, love you
Love you, love you, love you
Love you, love you, love you
...

 

I must be missing something because I don't see how the video and the song connect, but regarding Crossfire series, it could be an allegory of Gideon being chased by his demons till he faces them with the help of the love of his angel.

My granddaughter's new favorite pop song describes Eva (except her mother never told her she not to worry until she hooked Gideon!)  She could change "mama" to "boyfriend" or "husband"

 

All About That Bass

 

Because you know

I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass

Yeah, it's pretty clear, I ain't no size two
But I can shake it, shake it
Like I'm supposed to do
'Cause I got that boom boom that all the boys chase
And all the right junk in all the right places

I see the magazine workin' that Photoshop
We know that s*** ain't real
C'mon now, make it stop
If you got beauty, beauty, just raise 'em up
'Cause every inch of you is perfect
From the bottom to the top

Yeah, my mama she told me don't worry about your size
She says, "Boys like a little more booty to hold at night."
You know I won't be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
So if that's what you're into then go ahead and move along

Because you know I'm
All about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass
Hey!

I'm bringing booty back
Go ahead and tell them skinny that
No, I'm just playing. I know you think you're fat
But I'm here to tell ya
Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top

Yeah my mama she told me don't worry about your size
She says, "Boys like a little more booty to hold at night."
You know I won't be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
So if that's what you're into then go ahead and move along

Because you know I'm
All about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass

Because you know I'm
All about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass

Because you know I'm
All about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass, no treble
I'm all about that bass
'Bout that bass
'Bout that bass, 'bout that bass
Hey, hey, ooh
You know you like this bass

The music presented has been for Eva and Gideon.  I think Cary needs this song for Trey!

"I Have Nothing"


Share my life, take me for what I am
'Cause I'll never change all my colours for you
Take my love, I'll never ask for too much
Just all that you are and everything that you do

I don't really need to look very much further
I don't wanna have to go where you don't follow
I won't hold it back again, this passion inside
Can't run from myself
There's nowhere to hide

Don't make me close one more door
I don't wanna hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don't walk away from me...
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don't have you, you, you, you, you.

You see through right to the heart of me
You break down my walls with the strength of your love
I never knew love like I've known it with you
Will a memory survive, one I can hold on to

I don't really need to look very much further
I don't wanna have to go where you don't follow
I won't hold it back again, this passion inside
I can't run from myself
There's nowhere to hide
Your love I'll remember forever

Don't make me close one more door
I don't wanna hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don't walk away from me...
I have nothing, nothing, nothing...

Don't make me close one more door
I don't wanna hurt anymore
Stay in my arms if you dare
Or must I imagine you there
Don't walk away from me, no.
Don't walk away from me
Don't you dare walk away from me
I have nothing, nothing, nothing
If I don't have you, you,
If I don't have you, oh, ooh, ooh.

Just heard an old Dave Matthews Band song and I thought it was perfect in describing Gideon's feelings for Eva.

Dave Matthews Band- Crush

Crazy how it feels tonight

Crazy how you make it all alright love

You crush me with the things you do

I do for you anything too

Sitting, smoking, feeling high

In this moment it feels so right

Lovely lady

I am at your feet

God I want you so badly

I wonder this

Could tomorrow be

So wondrous as you there sleeping

Let's go drive 'til morning comes

Watch the sunrise

To fill our souls up

Drink some wine 'til we get drunk

It's crazy I'm thinking

Just knowing that the world is round

Here I'm dancing on the ground

Am I right side up or upside down

Is this real or am I dreaming

Lovely lady

Let me drink you please

I won't spill a drop, I promise you

Lying under this spell you cast on me

Each moment

The more I love you

Crush me

Come on

It's crazy I'm thinking

Just knowing that the world is round

Here I'm dancing on the ground

Am I right side up or upside down

Is it real or am I dreaming

Lovely lady I will treat you sweetly

Adore you

I mean

You crush me

It's times like these

When my faith I feel

And I know

How I love you

Come on

Lady

It's crazy I'm thinking

Just as long as you're around

And here I'll be dancing on the ground

Am I right side up or upside down

To each other we'll be facing

By love we'll beat back the pain

We've found

You know

I mean to tell you all the things I've been thinking deep inside

My friend

With each moment the more I love you

Crush me

Come on

Lady

So much you have given love

That I would give you back

Again and again

Meaning I'll hold you

And please

Let me always

Just finished rereading all four books.  At the end of Captivated by You I thought about Bryan Adams song "Everything I Do I Do It For You".  I also have been thinking about John Legend singing "All Of Me" from the balcony of the CrossWinds as the wedding first dance.
