The Eagles produced some of the most memorable hits of my childhood and every time I hit a karaoke bar (hey, if you're a karaoke enthusiast like me, you'll have a local lol) I am sure to hear those songs again. One of my favourite songs is today's blog post track Peaceful easy feeling.
I like the way your sparkling earrings swing
Against your skin, it's so brown
And I wanna sleep with you in the desert tonight
With a billion stars all around
I remember when we would get ready to go out somewhere one evening together and you always complimented on how beautiful I looked or you would ask me to wear something specific that you liked, especially if it was a pair of earrings that you liked to see me wear. Even though we went out together, you would socialise with your friends and I would socialise with mine, but you always made a point of coming to find me to whisper in my ear from time to time how much you loved me, or tell me I was the most beautiful woman in the room or tell me you were the luckiest guy in the room.
And I found out a long time ago
What a woman can do to your soul
Oh, but she can't take you any way
You don't already know how to go
It's my second Valentine's Day without Loma. He was a huge fan of celebrating it, I wasn't much of a fan. I still have the gifts he gave me on our last Valentine's Day together and I think it's because I know how much Valentine's meant to him, that I still keep them.
I get this feeling I may know you as a lover and a friend
But this voice keeps whispering in my other ear
Tells me I may never see you again
Even though I won't see you again here on earth, I know I hear you in the songs that play around me, the songs that I write and the songs that I play for you in mind. The passing of time makes the aching hurt a little less, but the aching remains. I guess it's hard for people to understand how that feels until it happens to them.
And I've got a peaceful easy feeling
And I know you won't let me down
Cause I'm already standing on the ground
I hope that I will always have the memories of you remain burning brightly in my mind's eye, in the chambers of my heart and in the work that I do, that I know you supported and encouraged me to excel in. Loving you has kept my feet planted firmly on the ground. I know what love is because of you, because we gave each other that peaceful easy feeling. . .
Happy Valentine's Day to my lover and friend, Loma xx
