Baby I Love Your Way

New MM Music Badge

This is a very romantic love ballad that was written and performed by English singer Peter Frampton and it charted #43 in the UK and went to #12 in the US and it also reached number three in Canada. Frampton is telling his girl that he loves everything about her and that he wants to be with her day and night.  Originally, this went nowhere when it was first released as a single in 1975 from his fourth studio album, but before he went on tour and recorded it again on his live album, Frampton Comes Alive, it became a huge hit.

This song ‘Baby, I Love Your Way’ invokes feelings of being with a new girlfriend or possibly a long-term lover and looking deeply into her eyes as sunset is occurring. Shadows are moving, the moon is shining and the singer is telling himself not to hesitate as the is the perfect time to make his move, because he feels that her love won’t wait.  A beautiful sunset invokes all these intense feelings and emotions, and creates an enchanting feeling as they are far away from the city.  It’s still daylight but the sky is filled with color and the clouds appear to be stalking islands in the sun. Magic is in the air, while he is spending these special moment with his lover, and suddenly the day turns completely into night. He decides that he is not going to blow this opportunity to be with her, so he will take his time.  He will do this her way and he will love her way.

Shadows grow so long before my eyes,
And they’re moving across the page
Suddenly the day turns into night,
Far away, from the city

Don’t Hesitate,
‘Cause your love won’t wait
Ooh baby I love your way,
I Wanna tell you I love your way,
I Wanna be with you night and day

Moon appears to shine, and light the sky,
With the help, of some fireflys
I Wonder how they have the power to shine, shine, shine,
I Can see them, under the pine

But Don’t hesitate,
‘cause your love won’t wait
Ooh baby I love your way,
I Wanna tell you I love your way,
I Wanna be with you night and day

Well don’t, don’t hesitate,
‘Cause your love, won’t wait,

I Can see the sunset in your eyes,
Brown and grey, and blue besides
Clouds are stalking islands in the sun,
I wish I could buy one, out of season,

But don’t hesitate,
‘Cause your love won’t wait,
Ooh baby I love your way,
I wanna tell you I love you way,
I Wanna be with you night and day
Ooh baby I love your way

The challenge today is to focus on this song and use it for inspiration in any form of creative expression (including but not limited to short stories, a piece of flash fiction, poems, lyrics, artwork, photography, (etc.) that you can share with the writing community. Alternatively, if you are a musician, and you have played this song solo or in a group, it would be awesome if you could post a video to showcase your own work.  You could write about how you learned to play the chords or how you learned the lyrics.  There is no need to stick with this song, as if you like to write about another Peter Frampton song, where he went solo or when he was in Humble Pie or the Herd or another romantic song about a guy willing to do anything to get a girl, that would work.

The whole point of this MM Music challenge is to get you to think, to trigger something so that you can show how creative you are and everyone is welcome to participate. People often say that true love is worth the wait, but how long should a person have to wait. The waiting part of love is much more difficult than the part where you get to have sex.  If you are lucky enough to be truly loved by someone, that can bring the most beautiful feeling in the world. If you would like to write about how it makes you feel to be in love, then do that.  If you are still single, then write about how long you are willing to wait.  You could also write about some love advice that you want to share with others.

Dylan Hughes has next Friday, September 13 with her First Line Friday and then I will be back on Friday, September 20 with another MM Music Challenge where we will discuss the song ‘Where Do The Children Play’. When you are finished writing your post, create a ping back to this post, but you can also place your link in the comments section below if you desire.  This Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie MM Music challenge has a special feature called Mr. Linky, which will allow you to instantly link your post after you click the Mr. Linky Button, and then follow the directions that are given.

About newepicauthor

My About Me section is meant to provide my readers with an honest picture of myself that gives a little bit of background information on who I am and I will wrap this up with a catchy image. I am a story teller and I like to use my imagination. I am interested in many things, but a few of my favorites are watching the NFL and playing golf. I do not like onions and I always make sure that my food does not contain any. I had two wonderful parents, my dad Herb Adams was a television repairman and my mother Mary Adams was mostly a stay at home mom. They are both deceased now and I miss them. I am a retired Electrical Engineer specialized in control systems. I held many different positions because I worked mostly as a consultant. I did work as a Substitute Teacher, for a while, but the kids were awful. I am happiest when I am writing, as this gives my life has a purpose. Forming a sentence with meaningful words that articulate my inner feelings is an everyday quest for me. Every writer needs to tell their story, and all writers have their own style. All stories starts off with characters, who are able to entertain the reader. Creating realistic lovable characters is the best way to tell a story. If you are able to develop characters that become real to you, then you will know exactly what they will do say and do next and this lets your story progress to the completion. Writing changes everything and having the calling to create something new through the power of words is much more than just making marks on a page. Once written, a book can be used by many people to learn and be entertained. The act of writing can be compared to the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle as it contains an inherent fuzziness, because various people may derive different meanings from reading the same words. You can never know the true nature of written words and the best I can do is hope is that people will understand the meanings that I am trying to convey. There are no clear-cut laws on how to write and it is impossible for me to determine how my readers react to my books.
