Day 53: Starting Over

I am not much of a J-Lo fan.  I mean, I like her as a judge in American Idol since she does know what she’s talking about (unlike Randy, sometimes) and she seems nice (plus I like some of the things that she wears on the show).  But, I can’t say that I have her whole discography on my collection.  Sure, I have that single of hers (Alive) and I know a couple of her songs but I didn’t think–until I got myself a copy of her latest album, “Love?”–that I would be posting a song sung by the World’s Most Beautiful Woman (a title given to her by People’s magazine).

For today’s song, I chose Starting Over by J-Lo.  Unlike most of the tracks she have on her latest album, this song is a bit mellow and not an bring-your-house-down-partying kind of song.  The lyrics are also catchy (since most of them rhymes, in a good and not annoying kind of way).  I’m not really sure why I like this song, but I just do.  And, sometimes, that is reason enough for me.

I don’t have any fortune-cookie-ish wisdom to share in regards with this song or a Zen-master-like advise that I could give for today, though.  Anyways, below are the lyrics to the song.  Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

he’s alright
he’s all wrong
he’s a player
he’s a dog
he’s my friend
he’s my foe
i just can’t leave him, i can’t go
i got my reasons
i got my pride
i got these kids
we got these ties
had this love
had these dreams
falling apart at the seams

he’s my man when we’re at home
and it can’t hurt if i don’t know
all his secrets all his lies
i just kep pushing-em out my mind
i wish that everybody would stop judging
pointing fingers its cutting
and no better, feeling so bad

i gotta make decisions
i’m strong but who am i kidding, i’ll be okay
but this love is tearing me in half

nobody wants to be the one breaking up
i’m down on my knees and praying for his love
i’m im love
i’m still in love
i just don’t think that it’s enough
i can feel ot getting colder
i’m afraid of starting over

he makes me feel like a child
he males me happy when he smiles
he makes me sad, makes me mad
want to give him all i have
and i have tried to treat him good
show support like i should

did my part, he my heart
and i’ve been faithful from the start

he’s my man when we’re at home
and it can’t hurt if i don’t know
all his secrets all his lies
i just keep pushing-em out my mind
i wish that everybody would stop judging
pointing finger sits cutting
my heart is broken
and no better, feeling so bad

i gotta make decisions
i’m strong but who am i kidding, i’ll be okay
but this love is tearing me in half

nobody wants to be the one breaking up
i’m down on my knees and praying for his love
i’m in love
i’m still in love
i just don’t think that it’s enough
i can feel it getting colder
i’m afraid of starting over

to save this life
we built together
we need another chance
it’s like my whole life
and my existence
he holds in his hands

nobody wants to be the one breaking up
i’m down on my knees and praying for his love
i’m in love
i’m still in love
i just don’t think thats it’s enough
i can feel it getting colder
the time has come for starting over

There is nothing more that I enjoy doing than reading books and writing. I'm kind of a nerd like that, XD. I have been writing for 7 years and am the author of the YA novel "Winged: The Awakening" and "Winged: The Unraveling". Also, a YouTuber dealing with video games and gaming.
