Teenage Girl Shyt

Ok indulge me today. I love this Bey song, actually I feel this song in my heart. I love the words Des'Ree wrote but I really love the extra Bey added because the capture how I feel. These lines especially, You're my father/you're my soldier/you protect me, boy you save me/you're my best friend/ you're my husband/you are my doctor, counselor,/provider, professor, my everything I don't think I have ever felt that way about a man as much as I do now, which is sad considering I'm divorced. Sometimes I wish I would have understood how serious my decision to get married was when I made it. (AB4AD)

Now being a Bey fan I know this song was for Jay in response to how he openly talked about how he felt like his girl seemed to love her music more than him in a few songs and even some interviews. That's why there is the line I love you more than music. You think I could change that to I love you more than business analysis? I know, too bad I have such an UNGLAMOUROUS career!! I do love him more than writing though, does that count?

Anyway I have included videos and lyrics to both songs to pay homage to the original writer Des'Ree. I know this post is entirely teenage girl shyt!

But yesterday my girl asked me to tell her when I knew I was in love seeing as I fought it tooth and nail. While that story is one a little too personal, for even me, to share with the world [wide web]. These lyrics do definitely capture how I feel. I must admit I struggle with feeling this vulnerable and sappy, but hey it is what it is. Enjoy!! To me just being able to feel this way is enough I don't need anything more.

Des' Ree's original song

Pride can stand a thousand trials,
the strong will never fall
But watching stars without you,
my soul cried.
Heaving heart is full of pain,
oh, oh, the aching.
'Cause I'm kissing you, oh.
I'm kissing you, oh.
Touch me deep, pure and true,
gift to me forever
'Cause I'm kissing you, oh.
I'm kissing you, oh.
Where are you now?
Where are you now?
'Cause I'm kissing you.
I'm kissing you, oh.

Bey's version

I'm so in love
I'm still in love

I've never been in love quite before
until I saw your face
and watching stars without you
my soul cries
my hething heart
is full of pain
when we're apart
the aching

I'm kissing you
I'm kissing you

You're my father
you're my soldier
you protect me, boy you save me
you're my best friend
you're my husband
you are my doctor, counselor,
provider, professor, my everything

And I love you, I love you, I love you, yes I love you
I need you, I need you, I need you, I can't live without you
I trust you, I trust you, with every ounce of me
Just teach me, boy teach me, just take me

When we make love I can feel all your spirits
deep inside of me
Baby you're so pure

I'm Kissing you forever, and ever, and ever
I love Kissing you (kissing you, kissing you)

Boy I love everything about you baby
it's been so many years since we fell in love
we got something special baby
we can cry together
we can grow together
be ourselves together
and I love you more than music
yes I love you more than music

I rather be kissing you, oh
I'm kissing you oh (kissing you, kissing you)

In my soundtrack of my life I think I will have to add this song, it is now and will always beone of my love songs!

Be EZ,

I prefer Des'ree, although Beyonce had done a good job, I think that the song is more suited to Des'ree because she had a richer and deep tone. While Beyonce has a sweeter and lighter tone.

Felicity, Des’Ree’s song is a sadder song to me like the love is gone forever; it was the love song for Romeo and Juliet the movie. Bey’s is more about being away from your love and letting him know you still love him despite that. I definitely identify with Bey’s more but I think the lyrics are killer and unless you were William Haung (sp) you could sing them and they would really mean something. That is what you call powerful song.

Hi sound like a woman in love...I'm happy for you.
I bought Beyonce's Deluxe Edition of "B-day" last year and it was my daughter who hipped me to that song. She also told me that Des're
did it first and that we owned a copy of the original. Bey added some words to her version, (which I actually like better) but it stays in spirit with the original
song. Very pretty song.
