You're my woman
And you're my woman
You bore my child, Lord
You bore my child, Lord
I want to thank you
I want to thank you
And no one else will do
And no one else will do
And no one else will do
Baby, yes you, you are my sunshine
I am your guiding light
To like a ship out in the night
Returning for a light

I love you
I really love you
My heart is for you
My heart is for you
I long to feel you
I long to feel you
And every time I do
And every time I do
And every time I, I do
Baby, it's you, you are my sunshine
I am your guiding light
Just like a ship out in the night
Returning for a light, oh yeah

And it's really real
The way I feel
It's really real
Lord have mercy
Look into my eyes
Look into my eyes
And you realize
And you realize
Is really, really, really real

In Kingston town now
In Kingston town now
Walked up and down now
Looked at the ground now
You went in labor
You went in labor
And all our friends came through
And all our friends came through
And all our friends came through
Baby, it's you, you are my sunshine
I am your guiding light
Just like a ship out in the night
Returning for a light, oo-we

And it's really real
The way I feel
Really real
Look into my eyes
Look into my eyes
And you realize
And you realize
It's really, really, really, really real, oh yeah
And you're my woman
Oh you're my woman
And you're my woman
You're my woman
And you're my woman, oh
Lord have mercy
Sing it to me
And you're my woman
Help me sing this song tonight, yeah
And you're my woman, ah
Lord have mercy
And you're my woman, ah, you're my woman
You're my woman, help me, help me
It's
And it's really, really, really, really, really, really real

    No comments? I frickin LOVE this song!

    My ex-lover "OpaPatty" and I had a baby after spleefin in Kingston Town for (almost) an entire year together. She is something special to me because she bore my child. We named him "The Almighty Mud-Faced AntiChrist". He is a unique son of a bitch.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,
