Flower Post 6

Ben Harper and Jack Johnson


.... Kill me not, for I love thee!

Yes, I have been away. 9 whole months, much to the chagrin of my fellow music-propagators, Shar and Kristofer.

Today, I am in a philosophical mood. No, not philosophical but more like, 'contentedly-satisfied-edly-heart-warmingly- toes tinglingly melancholic.' What does it all boil down to?
Warm symphonies and woebegone words.

Hence, today I am introducing a song. Not an artist, a song. A song by two song-writers/singers who are known; who steal hearts; who bridge gaps and yet, together, create magic that isn't known by many.

Presenting Jack Johnson and Ben Harper!

Put the warm-honeyed voice of Johnson and the ever-so-raw crooning of Harper and you have 'gorgeous' in a song -- Please Me Like You Want To. (Click to listen)

A song that flows not only through your heart but through your mind, body, soul... the jazz that people say love is made up of is not only intertwined within this song, it is intertwined between these men. Phenomenal artists in possession of thunderous talent come together to give a voice to all the aching and going-ons in those little, traitorous hearts of ours.

I always believed in the concept of believing in love... till I fell in love. I know I don't have to explain it any further...

... So, as yet another victim of this nearly supernatural emotion, I extend and share this song with you; allow it to vine it's way around your emotions, flow through your veins, wrap itself around your brain... and make your heart smile. =)

Don't do me any favors
matter of fact why don't you
do yourself a few

your presence ain't nobody's blessing
I've got plenty of other things
I could do

oh no, not another excuse
your tired silly games
for me are just no use

and now it's plain for me to see
you're with somebody
that you don't want to be

so won't you
please please me like you want to
not like you have to
or won't you just go on and leave me
leaving me is the least that you could do

you could have spared me
so much misery
and told me you just wanted
a friend

believe me there is a difference
when you mean it
and when you pretend

or was I just your habit
cause I know a habit
is a hard thing to break

but won't you spare me
a little mercy
there's only so much
so much that I can take

so won't you
please please me like you want to
not like you have to
or won't you just go on and leave me
leaving me is the least that you could do

We come to the end of yet another journey - at least that's how every post feels like. =) I hope this song took you to a far away place that probably only you know of. No one's asking questions, no one's asking where. ;)

I haven't said whatever it is I wanted to... But I know you know what I know and that makes me glow. =)

I hope you've loved, are loving and will love!

Peace and much love,

P.S. Future posts of these two phenomenal men! Wait for it. ;)
