When I was little my mom had a turntable and hi-fi system. I would listen to certain albums over and over and over…one of those was a Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway Album. I remember when he killed hismelf. I remember wondering if Roberta’s heart was broken.

“You are my love…you are my heaven. Darling I…I won’t let them take you away.”


This song REALLY touches me deeply…but, these are NOT tears of sadness. Love can be a pretty powerful elixer.

“I love you in a place where there’s no space or time
I love you for in my life you are a friend of mine”


SONG FOR YOU



Artist: Donny Hathaway

I’ve been so many places in my life and time
I’ve sung a lot of songs I’ve made some bad rhyme
I’ve acted out my love in stages
With ten thousand people watching
But we’re alone now and I’m singing this song for you

I know your image of me is what I hope to be
I’ve treated you unkindly but darlin’ can’t you see
There’s no one more important to me
Darlin’ can’t you please see through me
Cause we’re alone now and I’m singing this song for you

You taught me precious secrets of the truth witholding nothing
You came out in front and I was hiding
But now I’m so much better and if my words don’t come together
Listen to the melody cause my love is in there hiding

I love you in a place where there’s no space or time
I love you for in my life you are a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remember when we were together
We were alone and I was singing this song for you

You taught me precious secrets of the truth witholding nothing
You came out in front and I was hiding
But now I’m so much better and if my words don’t come together
Listen to the melody cause my love is in there hiding

I love you in a place where there’s no space or time
I love you for in my life you are a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remember when we were together
We were alone and I was singing this song for you
We were alone and I was singing this song for you

Regarding love and watching it grow….

“The closer i get to you
The more you’ll make me see”


CLOSER I GET TO YOU

Artist: Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack Lyrics

The closer i get to you
The more you’ll make me see
Like giving me all you’ve got
Your love has captured me

Over and over again
I’ll try to tell myself that we
Could never be more than friends
And all the while inside
I knew it was real
The way you make me feel

Lying here next to you
Time just seems to fly
Needing you more and more
Let’s give love a try

Sweeter than sweeter love grows
And heaven’s there for those
Who fool the tricks of time
With the hearts in love you find
True love
In a special way

The closer i get to you
The more you’ll make me see
By giving me all you’ve got
Your love has captured me

Over and over again
I’ll try to tell myself that we
Could never be more than friends
And all the while inside
I knew it was real
The way you make me feel

The closer i get to you
The more you’ll make me see
By giving you all i’ve got
Your love has captured me



Think about it…how many friends do you have that you KNOW will be in your life forever? Always be there for you…never judge you…always love you for who and what you are?


“Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there”


YOU’VE GOT A FRIEND


Artist: Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway

When you’re down and troubled
You need some love and care
And nothing, nothing is going right

Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up
Even your darkess night

You just call
Out my name
And you know where ever I am
I’ll come running
To see you again

Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall
All you got to do is call
And I’ll be there
You got a friend

Aint it good to know
That you got a friend
People can be so cold

To hurt you and dessert you
And take your soul if you let them
Oh, but don’t you let them

You just call out my name
And you know where ever I am
I’ll come running, running, running, running, running
To see you again

Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there
You got a friend
