SLS – My Kinda Music

DO YOUR OWN THING

So when Jim said we could go our own way or do our own thing for today’s Song Lyric Sunday it was always gonna be Taylor Swift from me. I am a Swiftie through and through. But it was so hard to pick one song.

In the end though love won out. You see, 2019 was a big year for Ben and me. We got together late in the summer of 2018, and by fall we were living together. Had we known each other for 20 seconds or 20 years? We split the holidays between both our families and then 2019 we were making our own rules….it was our house. We went through a few ups and downs that first year. I learnt that I could be jealous and suspicious of other women over Ben. I think Ben was pleased to see that I was becoming possessive over him.

Before we got together…Ben had not been involved with anyone for a long time (he had plenty of action in his younger years). He was all work, work, work. I was on a rollercoaster ride led by Simon – my hummingbird (you know the one who liked other flowers as well as me). I am so glad that things worked out so well, and I ended up with Ben.

He is a dazzler. He has a mysterious way. He can take me out or take me home, I’d just like to be able to go wherever he goes. He is mine. (As I am his). He is my lover. Do you have any idea how much I cried when I first heard Tay Tay’s “Lover” back in Summer 2019? It was just the perfect song. I still get teary-eyed thinking of it. The video for this song is awesome, but I love seeing TayTay perform live. Every live performance showcases that she is as talented as she is awesome.

We could leave the Christmas lights up ’til January
This is our place, we make the rules
And there’s a dazzling haze, a mysterious way about you, dear
Have I known you twenty seconds or twenty years?

Can I go where you go?
Can we always be this close forever and ever?
And ah, take me out and take me home
You’re my, my, my, my
Lover

We could let our friends crash in the living room
This is our place, we make the call
And I’m highly suspicious that everyone who sees you wants you
I’ve loved you three summers now, honey, but I want ’em all

Can I go where you go?
Can we always be this close forever and ever?
And ah, take me out and take me home (Forever and ever)
You’re my, my, my, my
Lover

Ladies and gentlemen, will you please stand?
With every guitar string scar on my hand
I take this magnetic force of a man to be my
Lover
My heart’s been borrowed and yours has been blue
All’s well that ends well to end up with you
Swear to be over-dramatic and true to my
Lover

And you’ll save all your dirtiest jokes for me
And at every table, I’ll save you a seat
Lover

Can I go where you go?
Can we always be this close forever and ever?
And ah, take me out and take me home (Forever and ever)
You’re my, my, my, my
Oh, you’re my, my, my, my
Darling, you’re my, my, my, my

I’m happy for you to have that awesome relationship! Ditto on the great guy! Mine found me on a dating ap almost 16 years ago. We got married little over 3 years ago but have been together the whole time. πŸ™‚ It was both our second marriage. No reason to rush it. LOL!

That’s cool Lisa. I kinda like to hear of a dating app success. I have had so many friends who have had nothing but dating app disasters. I’ve been scared of them. Back in the day before I met my love, I have chatted online with guys, but none of them made me feel safe enough to want to meet them. They all seemed kinda weird.

You are correct on your assessment of the kinda weird! I went out with a few but would only meet them at Barnes & Noble or for lunch. Never at night and they weren’t allowed to pick me up. Frank was in Jacksonville, me in Tampa. I took a risk after 3 weeks of phone conversations (3-5 hours a night) and drove to Jacksonville. That was it! Over! We’ve been together ever since. I have a pretty good gut feeling, plus I have a concealed weapons permit. πŸ™‚ I felt safe when I took the chance! Lucky for me it worked out!
