    I've been known to put this song on repeat for the entire day.. Feels good to
    hear.. to see.. to sing.. to say.. to receive.. to imagine.

    Do we really need to do this again? I don't know why you insist on dropping that
    "crazy" line on top of every discussion I start about Lauryn's Art.
    I think it's really disrespectful.. and completely unnecessary.. I would
    really appreciate it if you would delete that from this thread. If you don't
    have anything of substance to say about the Art.. or the performance,
    why say anything at all?

    This thread is about showing the appreciation and respect to black artists
    that they don't get out there in the mainstream white media.. I prefaced
    these threads with the capital ART because I intend to illustrate a way of
    respecting those folks that seek to express and share their own individual
    manifestations of our shared experience as a people. They truly
    deserve our respect and cultural protection because once the Artists are
    gone then there will be no one to bend these words and sounds
    images to speak for us.. or to us. And we'll be left to dig through the
    expressions of other folks in search of our selves.. of our voices.

    And I listen, I don't expect you to a have an Aha! moment because of what
    I'm saying.. I'm just asking for a modicum of respect in the form of standing
    back and listening if you don't have anything constructive/productive/useful
    to contribute..

    Peace.. and keep living Mike.

    "Just Want You Around"

    I just want you around
    I just want you around
    I just want you around
    I just want you around

    Thought that I had lost you
    I can hardly make a sound
    When I thought I couldn't hold you
    Knew the world had let me down
    Should have took the time to tell you
    You keep my feet on the ground
    I hope that you can hear me
    Cause I know its not profound

    I just want you around
    I just need you around
    I just want you around
    I just need you around

    When I thought I was without you
    I got used to being down
    It was my fault I used to doubt you
    But that aint me next time around
    Please believe me when I tell you
    Cause all my words are bound
    This is my cross now let me bare it
    I was lost but now I'm found-found-found

    I just want you around
    I just need you around
    I just want you around
    I just need you around

    Took this love for granted
    Kept my feelings underground
    Should have watered what I planted
    Should have known what I have found
    I'm not used to being lonely
    I don't like the way it sounds
    You're the only one I know-yeah
    Who don't turn my upside-down

    I just want you around
    I just need you around
    I just want you around
    I just need you around
    Yeah I want you around
    I just need you around .......​
