Songs for Self(ves) 54

Sweet babes, you are my everything. Your love for me blows my mind. When I was so wrapped up and believing I was worthy of self-hatred and self-loathing, yous all loved me. Learning about you all was what gave me the courage to say no to suicide, and to make a commitment to never contemplate it ever again. Getting to know you all made me love yous all so much. Such a shock to learn of yous love for me. Yous are love.

She is Love

Sung by Parachute

I’ve been beaten down, I’ve been kicked around,
But she takes it all for me.
And I lost my faith, in my darkest days,
But she makes me want to believe.

They call her love, love, love, love, love.
They call her love, love, love, love, love.
She is love, and she is all I need.

She’s all I need.

Well I had my ways, they were all in vain,
But she waited patiently.
It was all the same, all my pride and shame,
And she put me on my feet.

They call her love, love, love, love, love.
They call her love, love, love, love, love.
They call her love, love, love, love, love.
She is love, and she is all I need.

And when that world slows down, dear.
And when those stars burn out, here.
Oh she’ll be here, yes she’ll be here,
They call her love, love, love, love, love.
They call her love, love, love, love, love.
They call her love, love, love, love. love.

She is love, and she is all I need,
She is love, and she is all I need,
She is love, and she is all I need.

At Last

sung by Etta James

At last
My love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a songOh yeah yeah
At last

The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clover
The night I looked at you

I found a dream, that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known

Oh yeah yeah
You smiled, you smiled
Oh and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
for you are mine…

At Last

Dedicated to my pretty, beautiful inner girls. Yous bring so much laughter and joy into my life and make it so much better. I have loved you and you have all changed my life. 🙂

Prettiest Girls

Pharrell Williams

Pretty girl, pretty girl
Oh, no, here comes a pretty girl, pretty girl
Uh, oh, here comes a pretty girl
Hey!

I know what you are thinking
I know what you will say
You made up this whole far fetched thing
About the reasons that I have changed

Well, I’m still the tiger
And the jungle’s still my home
But she blew out my fire
And now my killer instincts are gone
What did you do?

Everything lost its worth to me
Everything in this world
Everything did occur to me that
You are the prettiest girls

My life is so amazing
Let me explain how it got that way
Well, if happiness was standing at your door
I mean tell me what would you say?

But I am no liar
And you rearranged my home
And I wonder how I don’t get tired
Of loving the three of you instead of what I own
All that is gone

Everything lost its worth to me
Everything in this world
Everything did occur to me that
You are the prettiest girls

What are you doing to me?
What’s so drastic all my friends see?
You say, nothing, nothing, nothing
But it’s really something, something, something

You won’t answer me
And all the while
My heart just melts
From your innocent smile

It’s strange
Oh, god, I think I’ve changed

Ooh
There’s one thing that’s sure
Is everyday I love you some more
My hand’s been handcuffed and loved by you
So is there really anything I could do?
When

Everything lost its worth to me
Everything in this world
Everything did occur to me that
You are the prettiest girls

Love Love Love

by Andy Grammer

[Verse 1:]
It’s like
I’ve been feeling like a helium balloon
You know I’m always on the rise
Or is this love, love, love, love, love?
Dead winter but it feels like June
With a smile I can’t hide
Is this love, love, love, love, love?

No defenses I’m too deep for common sense
Well it’s love, love, love, love, love
Oh my I’m so delighted; I don’t try to even fight it
I think you should know that I will never let you go

[Chorus:]
Oh I won’t, I won’t let you go
I won’t let you go
Oh I won’t, I won’t let you go
I won’t let you go
Say I won’t let you go now

[Verse 2:]
I’ve been feeling like you’re swimming through my hair
You know you’re always on my mind
Is this love, love, love, love, love?
Dead broke ‘feelin like a millionaire
With a twinkle in my eye
Is this love, love, love, love, love?

No defenses I’m too deep for common sense
Well it’s love, love, love, love, love
Oh my so delighted; don’t try to even fight it
I think you should know, that I will never let you go

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
I’ve been sleeping on a cloud called number nine
Walking on the air and staring at the sky
I can’t remember ever feeling so alive
It’s like you brought me back to life
Well you turned on all the lights, somehow

It’s Like Ooh-whee
No defenses I’m too deep for common sense
Well it’s love, love, love, love, love

[Chorus x2]

Count on Me

Bruno Mars

[Verse 1:]
Oh uh-huh
If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea
I’ll sail the world to find you
If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can’t see
I’ll be the light to guide youFind out what we’re made of
When we are called to help our friends in need[Chorus:]
You can count on me like 1, 2, 3
I’ll be there
And I know when I need it
I can count on you like 4, 3, 2
You’ll be there
‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah
Ooooooh, oooohhh yeah, yeah

[Verse 2:]
If you’re tossin’ and you’re turnin’
And you just can’t fall asleep

And if you ever forget how much you really mean to me
Every day I will remind you

Oooh
Find out what we’re made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

Rocketeer

Far East Movement featuring Ryan Tedder

Here we go, come with me
There’s a world out there that we should see
Take my hand, close your eyes
With you right here, I’m a rocketeer

Let’s fly (fly,fly,fly,fly)
Up, up here we go, go
Up, up here we go, go
Let’s fly (fly,fly,fly,fly)
Up, up here we go, go
Where we stop nobody knows

[Prohgress:]
Where we go, we don’t need roads
And where we stop nobody knows
To the stars if you really want it
Got a jetpack with your name on it
Above the clouds and the atmosphere
Say the words and we outta here
Hold my hand if you feeling scared
We’re flying up, up outta here

Here we go, come with me
There’s a world out there that we should see
Take my hand, close your eyes
With you right here, I’m a rocketeer

Let’s fly (fly,fly,fly,fly)
Up, up here we go, go
Up, up here we go, go
Let’s fly (fly,fly,fly,fly)
Up, up here we go, go
Where we stop nobody knows

[Kev Nish:]
Baby, we can stay fly like a G6
Shop the streets of Tokyo, get you fly kicks
Girl, your always on my mind
Got my head up in the sky
And I’m never looking down, feeling priceless
Yeah, where we at? only few have known
Were on some next level, super Mario
I hope this works out, cardio
Until then let’s fly
Geronimo

Here we go, come with me
There’s a world out there that we should see
Take me hand, close your eyes
With you right here, I’m a rocketeer
Let’s fly

[J-Splif:]
Yo, now I ain’t ever been to space before
But I ain’t never seen a face like yours
You make me feel like I can touch the planets
You want the moon girl, watch me grab it
See, I ain’t ever seen a star this close
You got me stuck by the way you glow
I’m like oh, oh, oh, oh
I’m like oh, oh, oh, oh

Here we go, come with me
There’s a world out there that we should see
Take my hand, close your eyes
With you right here, I’m a rocketeer

Let’s fly (fly,fly,fly,fly)
Up, up here we go, go
Up, up here we go, go
Let’s fly (fly,fly,fly,fly)
Up, up here we go, go
Where we stop nobody knows

Your Love Keeps Lifting Me (Higher and Higher)

Jackie Wilson

Your love, liftin’ me higher
Than I’ve ever been lifted before
So keep it up, quench my desire
And I’ll be at your side forevermore

You know your love (your love keeps liftin’ me)
Keeps on liftin’ (your love keeps liftin’ me)
Higher (liftin’ me, liftin’ me), higher, and higher (higher)
I said your love (your love keeps liftin’ me)
Keeps on (liftin’ me, liftin’ me)
Liftin’ me (liftin’ me) higher and higher (higher)

Now once I was downhearted
Disappointment was my closest friend
But then you came and he soon departed
And you know he never showed his face again

That’s why your love (your love keeps liftin’ me)
Keeps on liftin’ (your love keeps liftin’ me)
Higher (liftin’ me, liftin’ me), higher, and higher (higher)
I said your love (your love keeps liftin’ me)
Keeps on (liftin’ me, liftin’ me)
Liftin’ me (liftin’ me) higher and higher (higher)
Awww

I’m so glad I finally found you
Yes, that one in a million girls
And I wish my lovin’ arms around ya
Honey, I can stand up and face the world

Let me tell ya your love (your love keeps liftin’ me)
Keeps on liftin’ (your love keeps liftin’ me)
Higher (liftin’ me, liftin’ me), higher, and higher (higher)
I said your love (your love keeps liftin’ me)
Keeps on (liftin’ me, liftin’ me)
Liftin’ me (liftin’ me) higher and higher (higher)
