More Love, More Joy

More Love: Smokey Robinson & the Miracles

I grew up and live in Metro Detroit. The Motor City. Motown. So when I went searching for a new theme for this old blog, Smokey Robinson popped into my head. And he was singing this song. Click for video, read on for powerful lyrics that I feel more now than I did as a tween listening to the Motown sound every day on WCLK.

“Let it be soon/don’t hesitate/Make it now/don’t wait/Open your heart and let my love come in/I want the moment to start when I can fill your heart with/More love and more joy/than age or time could ever destroy/Oh honey, now my love will be so sound/Gonna take about a hundred life time/To live it down, wear it down and tear it down

This is no fiction, this is no act/This is real it’s a fact/I’ll always belong only to you/And each day I’ll be living to/make sure I’m giving you More love and more joy/than age or time could ever destroy/Oh honey, now my love will be so sound/It’ll take a hundred life times/To live it down, wear it down, tear it down

As we grow older/no need to fear/when you need me I’ll be here/I’ll be beside you every step of the way/A heart that’s truthful and keeping it youthful with More love and more joy/than age or time could ever destroy/Oh honey, now my love will be so sound/It’ll take a hundred life times/To live it down, oh wear it down and tear it down…”

Just like Smokey, I wanna give you more love and more joy…you my family, you my friends, you who are reading these words. Whatever I can put out there positive to push back all the negative, that’s what I want to do now.
