S2S Song of the Night – “You Know How to Make Me” – In order to Love takes vulnerability.

In order to have REAL you have to be vulnerable.

Vulnerable to Give!
Vulnerable to Receive!

Vulnerable to Lead!
Vulnerable to Receive!

Vulnerable to hurt!
Vulnerable to be hurt!

Vulnerable to teach!
Vulnerable to learn!

Vulnerable to talk!
Vulnerable to listen!

S2S of the Night – The Girl Next Door

When I was in 5th grade, I along with a young girl named Scherezade were the only black students in our 5th grade in Texas. Of course, everyone teased me saying that we were boyfriend and girlfriend. I, of course, wanted nothing to do with her, even though she was cute.

Fast forward, 10 years later when I saw her on a visit back to Texas. What I felt was echoed in the lyrics of this song.

If I would’ve knew the girl next door
Would’ve been you
I would’ve been nice to you
A little more kind to you
I would’ve looked twice at you
If I would’ve knew the girl next door
Would’ve been you
I probably would’ve shared my grub
Depending on how close we was
By now we would be so in love

Do you have a boy or girl that you couldn’t stand that looked absolutely wonderful years later?

S2S Song of Night – Always and Forever (When was Your First Time?)

I remember the first time I heard a love song and thought of a girl. Her name was Sonia Rodriguez and I had to nerve to sing to her at the 3rd grade dance.

I remember mouthing these lyrics and trying to hit the high notes at the end.

Always and forever, each moment with you
Is just like a dream to met that somehow came true
And I know tomorrow will still be the same
‘Cause we’ve got a life of love that won’t ever change and

Everyday, love me your own special way
Melt all my heart away with a smile
Take time to tell me, you really care
And we’ll share tomorrow, together
I’ll always love you forever, forever

Unfortunately, it didn’t work, but It would be the first of many songs that would remind me about LOVE.

When was the first time you heard a song that made to thing about someone special.

S2S Song of the Night – Daughters -John Mayer

My heart is a little heavy this evening. PG is leaving on Thursday to support a friend who lost her niece last week. She was just a senior in high school.

As I think about her and the recent death of Avonte Oquendo, it helps me to realize that the relationship between PG and me, not only extends to the two of us, but to our kids as well. If our relationship isn’t strong, it will affect how we relate with our kids.

Sometimes, divorce is inevitable, but if you have a plan for raising your children, they can thrive. On this night, I will think of the young girl the way John Mayer sings about it in ‘Daughters’

She puts the color inside of my world
But she’s just like a maze
Where all of the walls all continually change
And I’ve done all I can
To stand on her steps with my heart in my hands
Now I’m starting to see
Maybe it’s got nothing to do with me

Fathers, be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers, be good to your daughters too

RIP Syn and Avonte

S2S song of the Night – Hey Laura! Gregory Porter – Missed Opportunities

When it comes to love & relationships, we miss out on so many opportunities and there are 7 reasons why?

1. We get desperate and settle.
2.We go for Mr. Wrong and we let Mr. Right pass us by.
3. We get caught up into the game and not the reality.
4. We want it all too soon.
5. We are afraid. Can this really be true.
6. We expected too much.
7. If only we could change him/her a little to fit what we need.

The type of mistakes may cause you to feel how Gregory Porter feels about Laura. If that is you check out Coach Keith and schedule a chat session.

Hey Laura it’s me sorry but I had to ring your doorbell so late

But there’s something bothering me I really am sorry but it just couldn’t wait
Is there someone else instead of me go ahead and lie to me
And I will believe your not in love with him
And this bloke can see, that the rivers of your love flow up here to me

S2S Song of the Night – Come away with me!

Some time you just have to drop everything and tend to your relationship Norah Jones eloquently states in her video.

And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
While I’m safe there in your arms
So all I ask is for you
To come away with me in the night
Come away with me

S2S Question of the Day – Did you make sure your spouse was bundled up? It’s Cold Outside.

I really can’t stay
But baby it’s cold outside
I’ve got to go ‘way
But baby it’s cold outside
This evening has been
Been hoping that you’d drop in
So very nice
I’ll hold your hands they’re just like ice.

My mother will start to worry
Beautiful what’s your hurry?
And father will be pacing the floor
Listen to the fireplace roar
So really I’d better scurry
Beautiful please don’t hurry
Well maybe just a half a drink more
Put some music on while I pour.

The neighbors might think
But baby it’s bad out there
Say what’s in this drink
No cabs to be had out there
I wish I knew how
Your eyes are like starlight now
To break this spell
I’ll take your hat your hair looks swell.

I oughta say no no no sir
Mind if I move a bit closer?
At least I’m gonna say that I tried
What’s the sense of hurting my pride
I really can’t stay
Oh baby don’t hold out
Ah, but it’s cold outside
Baby it’s cold outside

I simply must go
But baby it’s cold outside
The answer is No
Ooh baby it’s cold outside
The welcome has been
How lucky that you dropped in
So nice and warm
Look out the window at that storm.

My sister will be suspicious
My your lips look delicious
My brother will be there at the door
Waves upon a tropical shore
My maiden aunt’s mind is vicious
Gosh your lips are delicious
Well maybe just a half-a-drink more
Never such a blizzard before.

I’ve got to get home
But baby you’d freeze out there
Say lend me a coat
It’s up to your knees out there
You’ve really been grand
Your eyes are like starlight now
But don’t you see
How can you do this thing to me?

There’s bound to be talk tomorrow
Think of my lifelong sorrow
At least there will be plenty implied
If you caught pneumonia and died
I really can’t stay
Get over that old doubt,
Ah, but it’s cold outside
Baby it’s cold outside
