Want vs. Need

Flying in rare air

Waking up next to my man and wanting to be there

Feels good having a P.H.D in taking care of me

I know that’s a definite certainty

Many nights  I stayed

Only because the bills needed to be paid

Wanting to scream

Lost my self esteem

Lost my  ability to dream

Wasn’t a good fit

Now I am in charge of the throne on which I sit

 Played Bonnie to a Clyde

It’s true I took that ride

Called myself Anna Mae

Cuz I woke up with Ike beating me day after day

Then I found my rare air

I can’t tell you how good it feels living in this air

I went from being Bonnie taking rides with Clyde

To doing it like Michelle and Obama

Now it’s pride I see on the face of my mama

Let me give credit where credit is due

I found a man to love me through

More importantly I found the real me too

Nick did more than that

He showed me how to have my own back

Have to always be able to pick up your own slack

Weakness  allows the hunters to attack

When you see me with Nick 

I know you get sick

Memories floating by real quick

Hurting knowing you had the million dollar pick

All my paper is legit

This is my destiny, I mean it’s kismet

Flying in rare air

My king and an unbeatable pair

Want vs. need

Yes indeed

Motown Magic is better than any Mojo you can conjure up.

Detroit used to be a place where people didn't just work hard,  they dreamed, then they made the impossible happen.  I could tell you a little story about a guy named Berry Gordy, but I don't have all night. Detroit has had some bad press lately. High crime rates, bankruptcy, the auto bailout still it is where I started this journey. I know that for most when they think of Detroit the image they see is this. A city that can't keep it's street lights on, a city struggling on life support, ready to be unhooked and put out of its misery at any moment. This will never be my Detroit. I'm a little bias. I still think the Renaissance Building is one of  the most beautiful buildings ever built. I remember all the circuses my mom took us to in Cobbo Hall or Joe Louis Arena,. The best thing about Christmas was seeing the Nutcracker and then going to Hudson's Magical Wonderland. You can grow up, but a little of your childhood will always be right there under the surface. You can move thousands of  miles away , but  all it takes is one chord from a  song and your right back home again cleaning your room singing in a hairbrush and practicing the new Temptations or Gladys Knight and the Pips moves. You can leave Motown but Motown never leaves you. BTW, I never sang into a hairbrush, but I know peopel who might have.  I know many people think I'm too young to have a Motown soundtrack to my life but I'm not. Motown made music that still tells a story that is timeless today.
