About Me

About This Blog

Songs mean a lot to me. In this Blog I am sharing songs that have specific meaning to me. My tastes are varied but lean particularly to Country.

The lyrics of a song have meaning to the writer. I know a song can be popular for the tune and beat. It is when the words find a connection with the heart and find a common experience in the life of the listener the song becomes a classic.

Here you will learn more about what makes me tick than you probably want to know. I also hope it gives you some pause for reflection too on joys, sorrows, successes and struggles we all face.

I'll give you the song title, album I found it on, and the lyrics. You can decide whether you want to download it from your favorite music site.

We're Here To Love

A few years ago Debbie and I were invited to a gathering where everyone was to bring their favorite album with their favorite song. We were to bring them in a brown sack so that no one knew who brought what song. We spent the evening listening to the songs and trying to guess whose favorite it was.

This one was Debbie's. She and I had just been married a few months but it gave me some insight into her heart.

These are supposed to be songs about me. In a way this one is. Debbie came into my life at a time when I was wondering if I would ever be able to love someone again. She has been a wonderful daughter, mother, wife and "granny". She has lived out this song in how she has cared for her family.

Song: We're Here To Love.
Artist: Ronnie Milsap
Album: Christmas With Ronnie Milsap

We all live on a little ball spinning somewhere in space
A tiny dot in the universe reserved for the human race
And as our planet obeys the laws of gravity, nature and time
We must look to the heart and find our part that we play in the grand design.

We're here to love, oh, we've all got the power, ah, it's our finest hour
Though the stars up in heaven keep shining down
From the ghetto to the Holy land somebody's needing somebody's hand
And it's time that we all understand we're here to love.

Some will lose their soul to the power of gold and all that it may possess
They count their blessings by the things that they own
Never learning that more is less
But from the moment we're born until the fading light
All the seasons that turn in between
It's the love that you give and the hours you give
That's the measure of the life that you lead.

We're here to love, oh, we've all got the power, ah, it's our finest hour
Though the stars up in heaven keep shining down
From the ghetto to the Holy land somebody's needing somebody's hand
And it's time that we all understand we're here to love...
