Just venting here. My fiance and I have begun discussing our music choices. I knew something wasn’t right when we were agreeing on each and every detail… and that’s because we didn’t get to the song he’d like to dance to with his mother. It’s ridiculous, in my opinion. Of course I didn’t let him know that, there’s nothing I could/should say or do but in my mind I was like wtf? In the nicest of tones that is…
The name of the song is “Wild Flower” by New Birth. Not my kind of music but its a nice enough song. It’s kinda pretty in fact, but lyrically its so doesn’t fit. Let me give you a few of the lyrics:
She faced the hardest times you can imagine, and many times her eyes fall back the tears. And when her youthful world was about to fall in, each time her slender shoulders. For the weight of all her tears and a sorrow no one hears still rings in midnight silence in her ears
Let her cry for she’s a lady, let her dream for she’s a child, let the rain fall down upon her, she’s a free and gentle flower growing wild.
How depressing is that? Again, I’ll never bring it up, this is just my opinion and I’m venting here. I adore his mother, she has had a rough life but I’m not sure that she really wants to address it in this forum! And for the guests, that might be a whole different kind of tearjerker. Then again, I tend to analyze lyrics more than other people so maybe no one will notice? Lol, ah well, gotta let him have this one.
