Here I am

What a difference a good night sleep makes. Woke up feeling so refreshed and ready to start my day. I was not eager to get out of bed though, so I spent my morning just laying in bed listening to tunes off my computer. Last nights drive was something I really needed to do for myself. I don't get away from my apartment too often other than for work, so spending a little time to feed my own soul was long over due. I have to admit, I love this new James Taylor CD I bought. It had a DVD along with it so I watched that this afternoon. What I love most about this performer is that he is such a humble song writer and performer. Kind of like some other singer I know...hmmm... There was no fancy lights, dancers, or extra stuff that distracts the viewer from the songs. It was just him and his breath taking songs. It goes to show you that simple is often better. It was all about the music. God, now I know I am getting older. When you start liking the same music your parents did, you know times are changing.

But James Taylor wasn't the only CD I bought last night. Leona Lewis is a young upcoming singer who was discovered by Simon Cowel and I was really intrigued. I have often agreed with Mr cowels opinions on the singers of Idol, so I was curious to hear this young lady's music. I am happily to report, she sounds awesome. She kind of reminds me of Mariah Carey, but better. Let us hope over time she doesn't change into the overly sexual artist that flaunts it all.

Anyway, there was one song on her CD that really made me appreciate her a little more. Ever hear a song that made you feel like the message of it came right out of you head? Well, there is one song that really felt like it came from my mind at one point. I have had pretty much the same feelings towards the people I care most about in life. The song is called Here I am, and when I hear it, I think of my friends and how much I always want to be there for each and every one of them. Of course one of my friends stick out the most when I hear it, but I do have an abundant amount of love for all of my friends.

Here I am........Leona Lewis

This is a crazy world
These can be lonely times
It's hard to know who's on your side
Most of the time

Who can you really trust
Who do you really know
Is there anybody out there
Who can make you feel less alone
Some times you just can't make it on your own

If you need a place where you can run
If you need a shoulder to cry on
I'll always be your friend

When you need some shelter from the rain
When you need a healer for your pain
I will be there time and time again
When you need someone to love you
Here I am

If you have broken dreams
Just lay them all on me
I'll be the one who understands
So take my hand

If there is emptiness
You know I'll do my best
To fill you up with all the love
That I can show someone
I promise you you'll never walk alone

Well if you need a place where you can run
If you need a shoulder to cry on
I'll always be your friend

When you need some shelter from the rain
When you need a healer for your pain
I will be there time and time again
When you need someone to love you
Here I am

Everybody needs somebody who
they can pour their heart and soul into

if you need a place where you can run
If you need a shoulder to cry on
I'll always be your friend

When you need some shelter from the rain
When you need a healer for your pain
I will be there time and time again
When you need someone to love you
Here I am, Here I am

I hope you all have a marvelous day and may your week bring you love, faith, and hope....Take care to all. You are Loved!!!!!
