John Mayer Stops The Train :)

No matter how much time goes on, John Mayer’s songs always seem to entrance me, every time. From the classic “Your Body is a Wonderland” to the new Battle Studios album, I can’t help but love it all. And after attending his last concert for the 2010 tour in West Palm Beach, FL, I have a new found appreciation for John Mayer’s music. When you truly enjoy music, you appreciate everything from the melody to the poetic words and literal connotations that connect to your own life. His music holds so much power in such subtle, soft tunes.

That night at his last concert, there was one song in particular that stuck in my mind: “Stop This Train.” He was singing about this fast moving train called life, how fast we say goodbye to youth and approach old age. But more than the truthful words of the song, were his closing words to the audience in West Palm Beach that night. He gave us all the antidote to slowing down life and the fast moving inevitable end.

He said: I’ve figured it out. How to stop this train. And it’s not so difficult at all. It’s pretty simple actually. Just love everyone around you as much as you can, all the time. The ones that love you, love them back. Never stop loving them and telling them that you love them, because without love we just keep moving on this fast moving train and won’t be able to jump off.

Words to live by friends! It’s been my mental philosophy for a while now. although I don’t always act on it. But it happens to all of us, we know what we should do and we don’t do it anyways. We know we should tell the ones that love us day in and day out that we love them, but we get so caught up with life’s messes that we don’t.

So, I’m on my way now to tell my mother, my father, my family, my friends, that I care for them and love them, in hopes to slow down this fast moving train  🙂 Give it a shot, it might surprise you how fulfilled you will feel.

Marley LOVE

Musical session & some wonderful lyrics from Stephen Marley’s “Hey Baby”

“I’ve been gone awhile away from you when I hope you understand
That I got to do what I must do to be a better man
Cause if I was just to act a fool do nothing for myself
Then all my blessings would be cursed my world would be crumbling”

“It’s a joy when I sit down and think cause of the good things that we have
And what we do to make it through when the good turns into bad
Well I hope you find it in your heart and know these words are true
And please don’t fuss because I must go do what I must do”

“A time and space a different place a perfect we might be
I would be the wind that blows you be that widow tree
And I could never bail and thought of you not by my side
So I would be the one to tell you be the cool of night”

“And everyday I pray to Jah that one day you will see
And understand the fact I must fulfill my destiny
I hope you find it in your heart and know these words are true
And please don’t cry you know I must do what I must do”

“Hey baby don’t you worry, even though the road is rocky
I’ll be coming home to you again
And if you thought that I was lost, I have to bury my cross
Now I’m free from all these chains”

Go Out There & Love Someone

Some wonderful lyrics from Dub FX’s “Love Someone”

“It’s possible to love someone, and not treat them in the way that you want, it’s possible to see your eyes be the devil in disguise with another front-end”

“It’s possible to change this world, revolutionize the boys and girls, it’s possible to educate the next generation, ever rule the world someday now”

“The world is not a vicious place, it’s just the way we’ve been raised, discovering time and space, I know we that could make a change, rearrange the way that we appreciate the world today”

“But is it luck that our love is crazy, place the human race to get me wrong, I still think we could change, but this life, the fact that time exists, were here, we don’t come equipped with it all”

“Half the fun is learning, I’m having a ball, the world keeps turning, my road is small but I make a change, I hope you’re feeling the same way, I’ll be sayin’ say what I say”

“In this concrete jungle we live, our survival is love that we give, now my instincts has got in my way, screw what they say, the world is your chance to create”
