♫ I’m In A Different World ♫

Tonight’s song by the Four Tops is a repeat of one I did in January.  I play this again tonight for a friend who, I think, could use a bit of good karma.  Love you, my friend …

I’m in a Different World
Four Tops

In this world of ups and downs my dreams all fall through
Things just don’t work out, no matter what I do
Disappointment haunts me, through each lonely day
The world around I see, in only shades of gray

But when the love light shines upon my face
I’m in a different world
A world I never knew, I’m in a different world
A world so sweet and true, I’m in a different world

I’m no longer just another face in a crowd
Hey, look into my eyes, you’ll see I’m strong and I’m proud
You are all the sweetness of my life, you see
You have brought heaven right here on earth to me
No man of wealth, I know I’ll ever be
But I’ll be satisfied just knowing you love me

On the stage of life I’ve played a loser’s part
It seems like I’ve been down right from the very start
Every time I lift myself up off the ground
Something always happens to bring the curtain down

But when your love light shines upon my face
I’m in a different world
A world so warm and sweet, I’m in a different world
Now that you’ve been loving me, I’m in a different world

Each time you speak my name or put your hand in mine
The empty life I knew, I leave it far behind
‘Cause you gave me the love that I truly felt
Most of all you made me believe in myself
You’re more than a love to me, you’re my way of life
I’ll forever cherish you, more each day and night

Oh,
I’m in a different world

A world that’s warm, a world that’s sweet
A world that’s every bit complete
A world that’s real, you’ve made me see
All the beauty surrounding me
Oh, look what you’ve done for me
Oh, look what you’ve done for me
I’m in a different world, now that you’ve been loving me
I’m in a different world, and that’s where I want to be
I’m in a different world, now that you’ve been loving me…

  1. Oh, bother! I waited and waited in vain for yesterday’s music post. I was all prepared to beat you with my B-witchy broomstick (figuratively, of course) for your choice of the day. Feeling secure in the knowledge that in all likelihood you would be unaware of the significance of the day. By late last night, all hope had vanished. I had by then become concerned that there was some underlying cause for the missing post and almost began chiding myself for almost indulging in my B-witchiness. Almost, because I had facts and trivia galore about the singer that I was all prepared to put forth ad nauseam. Yesterday’s comments would have taken my P for L to new heights, talk about raining on my parade!! I mean, how many people clone their dog? How many people get to come home to James Brolin? The one and only Barbra Streisand’s birthday went by unnoticed for lack of a music post. You are “Guilty” as charged! But, I indeed must pardon your crime as you are supporting a friend in their time of need with today’s song. Good for you Jill, good for you! Thank-you!

    • I might have known I would miss something important! In truth, whenever there is no music post, it is likely because I had no music in my heart. It happens on occasion. I will make it up to Ms. Streisand tomorrow … promise! And thank you for pardoning my grievous oversight! 😉
