My Lyfestyle Through Lyrics
[#ipodonrepeat I Wanna Be Down – @4EverBrandi]
For the nth teenth time my iPod was on shuffle. And for the nth teeth time it was reading my thoughts and playing music related to those thoughts. Brandi’s song I Wanna Be Down came on. Like always, I’ve heard the song millions of times but today it rang true to what I was feeling and thinking.
Being interested in someone and making an honest effort to get to know them isn’t a hard task. Yet, it’s not easy either. It’s like that moment just before you jump in a pool. You stick your toes in to check the temperature first. If it’s warm, you joyfully jump in with no qualms. If its cold, you either cautiously enter the shallow end as to get slowly use to the cold water or dive cannon ball style into the deep end to emerse yourself into the water quickly. Me, I always dive into the deep end quickly because the slow entry into the cold water is too much for me. I’d rather get it over with quickly.
I’m learning, as I get older, that getting to know someone better isn’t all that hard. The hard part is the baggage we carry into the new relationship. I’m being open to listening to what he has to say, yet being guarded with my heart and emotions so as not to get too attached or hurt if a snag is ever to occur in this courting stage (if that’s what this is called *shrugs*).
However, the hardest part of all this “getting to know a person” business is the thousands of miles between us. I’m a visual and physical person and I’m use to physical interaction. So this is truly a test for me. A sucky ass test at that, but a much needed one nonetheless. I don’t know how he’s holding up on his end, but I’m sure he’s going just as bananas as I am because we can’t at least touch each other. In due time I guess. If what we’ve started actually lasts until we see each other in person, and the conversations and physical attraction are as elecrtifying as what we’ve shared thus far, then I’m down for whatever. Life’s too short!
Brandi’s song, in every sense of the song, is what I’m feeling about a special someone. So much so that I learned it on the ukulele this afternoon. We’ll see where things go from here. I don’t know where it’s going but I can only hope the feelings are truly mutual and are actually reciprocated. So far, so good. I can’t complain. 🙂
How do you keep things spicy in a new friendship/relationship? How do you maintain the flame ’til you see each other?
Until next time XoXoX,

I Wanna Be Down as performed by Brandi
I would like to get to know if I could be
The kind of girl you that you could be down for
Cuz when I look at you I feel something tell me
That your the kind of guy that I should make a move on
And if I don’t let you know
Then I won’t be for real
I could be wrong but I feel like something could be going on
The more I see you the more that it becomes so true
There ain’t no other for me it’s only you
I wanna be down
With what you’re going through
I wanna be down
I wanna be down with you
No matter what time of day or night it’s true
I wanna be down
I know anybody’s gonna be lonely
Without the reason they got someone to care for
Maybe all you need’s a shoulder to cry on
If that’s a fact than I’ll be more than you ever could dream of
If all you need is the time that I got plenty of
I’ll dedicate all my love until you call baby
I wanna stay by your side
Be there to call you up
And let you know everything will be all right
