The Melody of Love


Inspiration and a melody...added to love that is in the air...

Can you imagine yourself inspired by your muses and not having time to stop for the rest of the night until you are done? Is anyone coming to the rescue? A melody that we have loved for ages; actually since 1982 came to us at work! From the song "Steppin' out" by legendary Joe Jackson, we started writing with so much fun. We wanted to write a romantic piece through the wee hours of the night. Let's see what we will have accomplished in one hour or less...

The Catchy Melody that Started it All... Just Bear with Us!

Running with desire, moving around, coming about...

assuming and heating up all you can imagine,

let's rock the world upside down..

Come close to me, come see what's inside of me

come and light up my senses

calm down the beat of my heart

exhaust and define what's behind our candlelight...

Encircling our love...
Encircling our love... | Source


Sweetheart, you're mesmerizing me with those attires

come by my side, turn off all the lights

Tonight I feel like is going to be so much fun

Your beloved one in disguise will apply all his might, just wait and see

Wait for your piano man who will play your hidden chords

Stand and get closer to your man

No ex-flame will be out there to cause you harm

Sweet "thang"

Sweet thang...! your desire is what means so much to me

...that obsession I see, too much waiting... get near me

through the next early morning, is where I want to "aim" anyway!

These modern times won't stop me from falling for you once and again my love

It's been so long since we started this ritual and have reached the summit of all

Compassionate, truthful and so much more; come get closer my amour...

Is what God has intended even before the day we were supposed to be born..!


sexy, sexy eyes! You brought so much life

Sweat, tears and eternal smiles, is what love from you all the time

fear is left behind, willing to survive this eclectic loving through the night

come embrace your man, and make him feel desired

stop moaning, your brain might realize we already reached the skies.

Fine, at last we know what's next in this game of love

Great, for a second I thought you wanted to stop it all

Gee! there is not stopping us, because your man is ready for the next one!

my movie star, you did fine tonight

Tomorrow we will revive more than just candle-lights...

Laundry will have to wait, after so much being done

this night was so rewarding..

hey! there comes our wedding song..!

The original version...
The original version... | Source

Cover that rocking body with my warm heart

behind you and embracing thoroughly your psyche and mind

Morning has already come, meaning we lasted

more than the last time....

Please, take your time and feel me again

Love like this is forever, and won't let go...

Promised it to the one above, and to the stars...

It is nice to be inspired, especially during work, which would really be a nice surprise by the lovely melody and the love that is in the air. And to have the "wedding song" too in the air! The addition of the sweet "thang," sounds like you have been to the south. Ha. Congrats to you and your lovely lady. I know you will let us all know of the day when the actual wedding bells shall ring. One can read your excitement that is in you through your words. Very delightful - "The Melody of Love." Videos are great. God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

This isn't fair! You can't write a great poem like this and top it off with highly meaningful (for me) song. I wish at least half the adventure as when that song broke through my car radio. Thank you.

Vocalcoah, your words mean a lot coming from a person who is involved with music and sound. I guess it was in our blood, and we just finally let it out. Much appreciated for your kind laudations.

Always exploring, aww! Thanks for the best wishes. You feel like keeping so much excitement away from the public, but sometimes you just feel like sharing it! Writing is easier this way, and we know it so well!

Your words paint pictures that leave little to the imagination :) "Wait for your piano man who will play your hidden chords"....if that doesn't touch a spot, nothing will! Your humor and passion make a beautiful melody!

Voted up, awesome, and beautiful.

.....well Lord of the Hub that you are ..... I have always loved your music related hub presentations - and this one is no exception.

I am a big Joe Jackson fan myself and I have seen him live in concert.

My personal favorite lp is a true gem called Joe Jackson's Jumping Jive .

And discovering one of your hubs is like taking a journey - and the many journeys I have taken with you are one of the true highlights of my time here at the Hub - so thank you for that , sincerely.
