Lyrics….

11 Mar

The Alicia Keys album is so friggin’ ridiculous. If you haven’t heard it… you’re missing an incredible artist’s expression. It’s a raw R&B rendition of love, the seasons of life, growing up, finding peace….

You can just feel the passion in Keys voice for what she is singing about. It’s like listening to Janis Joplin perform a Billy Holiday number…. or vice versa. It’s a great piece of art… the entire album from track 1 – the last.

B & I love this song so much! && the more I listen to the lyrics, the more I love it. You really need to listen to the music to get the full effect, but I’m really digging these lyrics.

Alicia Keys – As I Am – “Sure Looks Good To Me”:

Life is cheap, bitter sweet
But it seems good to me

Take my turn, crash and burn
It’s how its supposed to be

So don’t rain on my parade
Life’s too short to waste one day

I’m gonna risk it all the freedom to fall
Yes its sure looks good to me

Time passed by and leaves you behind
Take it naturally

Heaven knows There’s so much more
More than what we see

So don’t rain on my parade

“Sure Looks Good To Me”


Life’s too short to waste one day

I’m gonna risk it all. the freedom to fall
Yes its sure looks good to me

It sure looks good to me

Ooh, ooh, oooo, oohh
Yea, yea, yea

Ooh, ooh, oooo, oohh
Yea, yea, yea

Deep in my mind Im secure with getting by

I wanna see the light before I die or I lie in an empty space

The darkness comes and I’ve been telling my soul
And me and myself we turn around, we’re getting old

But the lightning crashing, foolish emotions
Of the bruises and the beauty of this moment that we’re feeling

And I feel like I’m seeing the world inside of me
But I can tell you that I know, its getting easier to breathe

Is it cold in the morning, endless equation
Of who’ve we become, it’s a complex situation

So live, love, lie give love
Live, love, lie give love
Live, love, lie give love

who are we anyway

So don’t rain on my parade
Life’s to short to waste one day

I’m gonna risk it all the freedom to fall
Yes its sure looks good to me

 It sure looks good to me
(I’m telling you) It sure looks good to me

Yeah It sure looks good to me

Looks good to me, yea, yea, yea
