Jhené Aiko - LOVE #StopAsianHate

This is my new favorite Jhené Aiko song

This quote from Pablo Neruda about death in the Motivation app on my iPhone came up:
“IF NOTHING SAVES US FROM DEATH, AT LEAST LOVE SHOULD SAVE US FROM LIFE."

I posted it on Instagram story, and searched for a song on "love."  This song was the one that popped out to me. 

Chesca wanted to go watch her in concert in July 2020.  She told me in October or November 2019.  I tried to buy tickets online, but they went fast.  Scalpers maybe.  I was so disappointed I couldn't get any for the two of us. Chesca wanted to go, so I badly wanted to take her.

But I don't remember her ever playing this, or hearing it.  Maybe I did.

It just hits me hard right now...



Lyrics

La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love
La-la-la-la-la, love, yeah
Look how the sun is shining
Over everything it seems
Very accepting of me
Even when I don't believe
Love, still got love
You better show me some love
Now we are growing in love, yeah
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love
La-la-la-la-la, love, yeah
Look down standing on my feet
Over hills and valley peaks
Veering right until I meet
Everything I'm meant to be
Love, still got love
You better show me some love
Now we are growing in love (yeah)
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love (love)
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love (ooh)
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love
La-la-la-la-la, love
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love (love)
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love (love)
La-la-la-la-la, love
I feel it deep in my soul
Whenever I'm feeling low
Anytime there is a void
I choose to fill it with joy
Uh huh (uh huh), aww yeah
I love (I love), I care
Alright (alright), that's right
I'm fine
I'm not bossy, I'm the boss
You know I could set it off
But I'd rather use my heart
When I put my faith in God
Nothing bothers me at all
I am more than my emotions
I know I am control when
I am living in the moment
Dedicated and devoted
Praying often, staying open
To more love, love
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love (love)
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love (ooh)
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love (woo)
La-la-la-la-la, love (la-la-la-la-la-la, love)
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love (love)
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love (love)
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love
La-la-la-la-la, love
