My Lyfestyle Through Lyrics

Time Can’t Erase a Feeling This Strong


Anyone that knows me, knows that I’m a huge Mariah Carey supporter. A voice like hers comes around once in a blue moon. So “Always Be My Baby” is an oldie but goodie for me. As many times as I’ve listened to it and have sung along whenever it played on the radio, in a store or on my itouch, today it took on a completely different meaning. Today, I was cranking out blog after blog and scheduling them out in advance (by the time you read this, it will have been about a month or two ago since I wrote it), and the person that weighed heavily on my mind was someone I had thought of often for about the past 12 to 13 years. Consciously, I felt I had moved on mentally and emotionally, but if my mind kept revisiting some memorable moments we shared, does that mean subconsciously I hadn’t moved on as I had thought?

As this song plays on repeat for the nth-teenth time in the last 15 minutes, the one lyric that stands out is “time can’t erase a feeling this strong”. How true is that lyric at this very moment. The rest of the lyrics may not be applicable to my emotions regarding said person, or are they? I’m listening and reading along as the song replays one last time. I know that back then I was too young to be in love, but in my adulthood, the lyrics take on a whole new meaning. Maybe not to a tee do the lyrics apply to what I’m feeling, but definitely 80 percent of the lyrics are relatable to feelings I’ve probably suppressed for quite some time. I don’t know. There’s a lot of self-reflection going on with me today. I’ve been working on improving myself in many ways. What I can’t control is who I love and how I love that person. We’ll see. In the words of the great Mimi aka Mariah Carey, “it’s only a matter of time”.

Has love presented itself in your life recently and what steps have you taken to either let that love grow?

Until next post,

Lia

Always Be My Baby as performed by Mariah Carey

Do do doop Do do doop do doop da dum Do do doop dum Do do doop do doop da dum
Do do doop Do do doop do doop da dum Do do doop dum Do do doop do doop da dum

We were as one babe
For a moment in time
And it seemed everlasting
That you would always be mine
Now you wanna be free
So I’ll let you fly
‘Cause I know in my heart babe
Our love will never die

[Chorus:]
You’ll always be a part of me
I’m part of you indefinitely
Boy don’t you know you can’t escape me
Ooh darling ’cause you’ll always be my baby
And we’ll linger on and on
Time can’t erase a feeling this strong
No way you’re never gonna shake me
Ooh darling ’cause you’ll always be my baby

I ain’t gonna cry no
And I won’t beg you to stay
If you’re determined to leave boy
I will not stand in your way
But inevitably
You’ll be back again
‘Cause you know in your heart babe
Our love will never end

[Chorus]

I know that you’ll be back boy
When your days and your nights get a little bit colder
I know that you’ll be right back baby
Oh baby believe me it’s only a matter of time

[Chorus]
