    Skin
    Sade
    When I found out this love's undone
    I was like a gun
    Sure as it was over
    Felt like nothing good could come
    Sure as it's gonna play and play
    Like michael back in the day
    I'm gonna peel you away
    Now as I begin
    To wash you off my skin
    I'm gonna peel you away
    Cos you're not right within
    I love you so
    Sometimes love has to let go
    So this time don't think it's a lie
    I say goodbye
    Now as I begin
    To wash you off my skin
    I'm gonna peel you away
    Cos you're not right within
    Now it's time
    To wash you off my skin
    Now as I begin
    It couldn't be right cos you're not right within
    I say goodbye

    A song of sorrow which brings to our minds all that is good, all those things in life that should keep one in life.

    But...

    I keep thinking that if the dearly departed had or felt they could get these things, they would be with us still.

    I like this, the Stones with a guest, and one of my top 10 Stones songs. And BTW, good luck to Sir Mick, he's back after his heart surgery, opened the new tour yesterday at Soldier Field [this video is NOT the new tour]:

    She was so stunningly beautiful that I can't imagine anyone slipping away from her. Than again, none of us are perfect.

    Emmylou made an entire album about her tragedy in losing Gram Parsons. She wrote most of it. Plenty of tears come with this LP, "The Ballad of Sally Rose."

    She's great, but I haven't heard her voice reach for anything beyond relaxed and casual. So can she really sing? Many say yes!

    We all have our limitations. Here a limitation that's unbearable.




    Sade, Sade
    There is a woman in Somalia
    Scraping for pearls on the roadside
    There's a force stronger than nature
    Keeps her will alive
    This is how she's dying
    She's dying to survive
    Don't know what she's made of
    I would like to be that brave
    She cries to the heaven above
    There is a stone in my heart
    She lives a life she didn't choose
    And it hurts like brand-new shoes
    Hurts like brand-new shoes
    There is a woman in Somalia
    The sun gives her no mercy
    The same sky we lay under
    Burns her to the bone
    Long as afternoon shadows
    It's gonna take her to get home
    Each grain carefully wrapped up
    Pearls for her little girl
    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    She cries to the heaven above
    There is a stone in my heart
    She lives in a world she didn't choose
    And it hurts like brand-new shoes
    Hurts like brand-new shoes

    It's one of their best songs, no doubt. Saw a many year old interview with Mick Jagger recently. He was asked "Can you see yourself doing this when you're sixty?"
    "Oh yes!" he answered. I was too young to believe this was possibly true. Wrong again I was!

    I find the "hurts like new shoes" lyric objectionable. If this is how far Sade's imagination can reach the rest of the song isn't worth bothering with. But she does reach with her voice, I stand corrected.

    Correction, the song writers are the guilty parties.

    A woman is being baked alive to feed a starving child by picking up rice that blows from rice trucks a bit at a time all along the dirt road to no where. You and I can have no idea of what she must endure to feed her child. But we mostly know the blisters when we get a nice shiny pair of new shoes.

    If we wear those shoes as we follow behind her bare feet, her impoverished life unfolds before us if we have a conscience those new shoes are really going to hurt our souls.

    For me the lyric speaks to tre difference between her life and ours.and seems perfect to me.

    But my wife objects as well and I left wondering what the hell is wrong with you two!! ":O}

    I didn't know that "pearls" equals "rice." Never have been in Somalia but I assume life there is extremely hard to deal with. But it's a miracle that Patti agrees with me.

    I like this Florence woman. Charlie Watts isn't wearing a suit and tie. What's up with that?
