SongLyricSunday- Beyoncé- Crazy In Love #music

Today’s theme, “madness” comes from Helen’s blog, This Thing Called Life On Word At a Time.

Have you ever been madly or crazy in love before?

This is the remix to the original, of course. I fell in love with the song over a decade ago when I thought it was “crazy” to go “madly” or crazy in love, but I know better now. Not necessarily crazy though. Ahem.

Though the feeling can really hit you with some…um… I’ll let you fill in the blanks. This version is more seductive and dark. I love the soundtrack more so than the movie. Wasn’t feeling it like that.


[Verse 1]

You got me looking, so crazy, my baby
I’m not myself, lately, I’m foolish, I don’t do this
I’ve been playing myself, baby I don’t care
Baby your love’s got the best of me, your love’s got the best of me
Baby your love’s got the best of me, maybe you’re making a fool of me
You got me sprung, but I don’t care who sees
Cause baby you got me, you got me, oh you got me, you got me…

[Verse 2]
I look and stare so deep in your eyes
I touch on you more and more every time
When you leave I’m begging you not to go
Call your name two or three times in a row
Such a funny thing for me to try to explain
How I’m feeling and my pride is the one to blame, eeh
I still don’t understand
Just how your love can do what no one else can

Got me looking so crazy right now
Your love’s got me looking so crazy right now
Got me looking so crazy right now
Your touch got me looking so crazy right now
(Your love) Got me hoping you’ll save me right now
Your kiss got me hoping you’ll save me right now (your love)
Looking so crazy in love
Got me looking, got me looking so crazy in lo-o-o-ve

Happy Birthday To My Dad! 🎉🎉 R.I.P.

Repost. Happy 54th to my best friend, my biggest cheerleader, my dad!!!

On this day, fifty-three years ago, my dad was born. Even though he’s up in heaven smiling and looking down, memories of him will stay forever in my heart.

If you have lost a love one, this post is for them as well. Love never dies. Even though, this year in November will be fourteen years he has passed, I still get heavy-hearted. He was my best friend and cheerleader, always pushing me to strive.

Happy Birthday Daddy!!! I will always love you! 🎉🎉❤ R.I.P.

Time Isn’t Promise To Us

Hi everyone! I hope you all are doing well and enjoying the holidays.

I apologize for being away from you all. The last few weeks have been…well… I can’t seem to find the exact words to describe how the last two weeks went.

For one, my internet has been down, still is, and I have to buy a new phone since the other one is beyond repair. It’s not easy, you know, to have a lot of work that needs to be done and you don’t have the necessary tools to do the work.

Now, I can get back to those things. Again, I apologize for being away from you all on here and on the other social media sites.

With that being said, three weeks ago, I was told that the woman who helped raised me from an adolescent was in hospice care not too far from me. I had no idea she was sick and didn’t had long to live, and my family told me that at the very last minute.

I haven’t been around my family in years and we don’t keep in touch. Well, thinking I had time on my side, the day I decided to visit her, a few days later, I got the news she had already passed away.

Again, I found out late. No one bothered to call or text me either. My internet was down so it’s not like I could have found out that way. My mom told me who was told by my sister.

I was devastated and cried until I couldn’t anymore. The woman, my cousin, she was an old woman. Died in her early eighties. I haven’t seen her in several years.

I don’t want to take time for granted again. Time isn’t promise to us. I’m glad I said my final goodbyes to her at the funeral home.

Life isn’t to be taken for granted. Love each other always and be there for one another while we’re still alive.

Take care y’all!
