320 plays Till It Happens To You Corinne Bailey Rae Corinne Bailey Rae


I know what I said
Was heat of the moment
But theres a little truth in between the words we’ve spoken
Its a little late now to fix the heart thats broken
Please don’t ask me where I’m going
Cause I don’t know
No I don’t know anymore

It used to feel like heaven
Used to feel like may
I used to hear those violins playing heart strings like a symphony
Now they’ve gone away
Nobody wants to face the truth
But you wont believe what love can do
Till it happens to you
Till it happens to you

If having things turn out the way you want them to is the measure of a successful life, then some would say that I’m a failure. The important thing is not to be bitter over life’s disappointments. Learn to let go of the past. I recognize that everyday won’t be sunny. And when you find yourself lost in the darkness and despair, remember, it’s only in the black of night that you can see the stars. And those stars will lead you back home. So don’t be afraid to make mistakes, to stumble, or to fall, because most of the time, the greatest rewards come from the things that scare you the most. Maybe you’ll get everything you wished for, maybe you’ll get more than you could ever imagine. Who knows where life will take you? The road is long and in the end the journey is the destination.

I think it’s bed time.
I think it should always be bed time.

Never get too attached to anyone unless they also feel the same towards you, because one sided expectations can mentally destroy you.

The Black body, more so of women, have stood on the opposite side of the narrow Eurocentric standards of beauty. Black hairstyles have defiantly rebelled against and even when straightened added creative magic of Blackness and Boldness. 

Black hair, whether relaxed or natural, locked or shaven is beautiful. Black women are beautiful.

Instead of living life with inhibitions and restrictions that don’t make sense to you, do what makes YOU happy despite what people think. Always adhere to your personal values and standards but free yourself from society’s expectations. If it makes you happy and you aren’t hurting anyone, then do it! People will judge you all your life no matter what you do, so why not do things your way?
