New Life to “Waterfalls” by TLC

On waking up this morning I did my normal morning routine of waking up hungry and planning my next meal in my head (Egg in a hole, cereal, leftovers…cake) into checking out what’s happening in the world, what I missed from last night, and going over blogs I subscribe to all from the comfort of my bed while mumbling to myself “do I have to adult today…”

Sometimes I find little treasures in all the morning muck like i did this morning. Some people cover songs that hold a special place for me and they just ruin it 🙁  and sometimes they surprise me and are AWESOME! All that to say, I wanted to share with y’all a version of TLC’s “Waterfalls” covered by the coaches from “The Voice” TV show. I have never seen an episode of this show and what i know of it is, it’s a reality TV show similar to “American Idol”? I don’t find much joy in reality TV so there’s that.

Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani: “Waterfalls” – The Voice 2017

Check it out, I think it’s FRIGGIN AWESOME! and it brings back hilarious memories of struggling to learn Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez’ rap (See it below) portion 🙂 in high-school. It’s just too good!

I seen a rainbow yesterday
But too many storms have come and gone
Leavin’ a trace of not one God-given ray
Is it because my life is ten shades of gray
I pray all ten fade away
Seldom praise Him for the sunny days
And like his promise is true
Only my faith can undo
The many chances I blew
To bring my life to anew
Clear blue and unconditional skies
Have dried the tears from my eyes
No more lonely cries
My only bleedin’ hope
Is for the folk who can’t cope
Wit such an endurin’ pain
That it keeps ’em in the pourin’ rain
Who’s to blame
For tootin’ caine in your own vein
What a shame
You shoot and aim for someone else’s brain
You claim the insane
And name this day in time
For fallin prey to crime
I say the system got you victim to your own mind
Dreams are hopeless aspirations
In hopes of comin’ true
Believe in yourself
The rest is up to me and you

I went ahead and attached the whole “Crazy, Sexy, Cool” album by TLC here just because, ENJOY!
