One of the Best songs ever...

...which I had to share with you tonight.

"You're the Inspiration" by Chicago

You know our love was meant to be
The kind of love that lasts forever
And I want you here with me
From tonight until the end of time

You should know, everywhere I go
You're always on my mind, in my heart
In my soul, baby

You're the meaning in my life
You're the inspiration
You bring feeling to my life
You're the inspiration
Wanna have you near me
I wanna have you hear me sayin'
No one needs you more than I need you

And I know, yes I know that it's plain to see
We're so in love when we're together
And I know that I need you here with me
From tonight until the end of time

You should know, everywhere I go
Always on my mind, in my heart
In my soul

You're the meaning in my life
You're the inspiration
You bring feeling to my life
You're the inspiration
Wanna have you near me
I wanna have you hear me sayin'
No one needs you more than I need you

During the summer of 1986, I went to see Chicago at Great Woods in Mansfield, MA. What a concert!! I went with some of my friends on staff that year (though I don't remember who went with us, besides possibly David Harrison). I had my driver's license but didn't have a car on campus, so going with a group was the only way to do it. We had lawn seats that night and I remember it was overcast and the grass was damp. I didn't care. Their album "Chicago 17" had just recently been released and they performed all the songs from it and many of their older, classic tunes that night. Their music was all over the radio that year and I remember listening to my cassette tape over and over and over again. I could sing along (however badly) because the lyrics were included.

Ahhh, the memories...

I would love for this song to apply to someone special in my life once more.

"Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but some day soon and for the rest of your (my) life."

(Sorry, had to insert the movie quote in there because it popped into my head as I typed and it seemed to make sense...)
