Babyface

There are some things in life that stays for a while.

Inclusive being Babyface songs.

I vividly remember my first Face’s song.

It is Two occasions ( here ) :-

I only think of you on two occasions.

 That is Day and Night.

I will go for broke if I could be with you.

The band’s name is “The Deele”.

In the next album, made under his own name, he made it clear it was not a broke kind of love.

He said he will go to work, return home, and cook dinner.

The song’s name is “Soon as I get home” and a copy is here.

It’s not that you require a lot
Just need some tender love and care
I give good love
I’ll buy your clothes
I’ll cook your dinner too
Soon as I get home from work
I’ll pay your rent
Your faithful lover
And I’ll never lie
For all that it’s worth

A few weeks ago, I came across a short clip ( Link ) featuring him, Tracy, their son, and Neon Deion.

And, that is when it suddenly hit me.

This guy is for real.
It was not just a song.
It is not just a song.
It is a life lived.
A living life.

At the time I first heard, it was an access card to give a voice to the way I was feeling about my teenage love.

When young, while young, one thinks feelings is enough.

So many years later, this man is still here, modeling that it does not need to stay an access card.

It does not have to stay youthful curiosity.

It could be a lived live.

Never forgetting about Fab 5 Freedy; Yo homey, I thought it was just a song.

My very BAD.

Deion Sanders On Rock Bottom

Living

As Deion tells me, he “had what the world calls success.” He was the only athlete who played in both the Super Bowl and the World Series. He had money, fame and women.

And then he found out there was “nothing there.” So he drove his car off the side of a highway, falling 40 feet off a cliff.

But he survived. “I opened my eyes and I was still alive,” he said.

Despite what happened that day, Deion says he kept running — until an “indescribable” moment in his Cincinnati apartment in the late 90s. He tells us about that moment — the one that changed everything — in this week’s episode of “Journeys of Faith.”

This is Deion Sanders’ story. A man who is now walking in his calling of uniting people, helping the disadvantaged and shining a flashlight on the needy. And, as only Primetime can say, he’s “unapologetically gonna go get it.”

 

Rock Bottom

“Rock bottom for me was laying between two and three women at a time, but you get up unsatisfied. Rock bottom for me … yes, I was bleeding.”

“Rock bottom for me was having hundreds of suits and not covering the pain. Rock bottom for me was having hundreds of pairs of shoes but couldn’t take a step in the right direction.”

“Rock bottom for me was having 10 cars and wasn’t going nowhere. Rock bottom for me was having a 14,000-square-foot house but never feeling at home.”

“Laying right beside the person who said they love you, but she didn’t even know you was in pain. That was rock bottom for me.”

 

Better Place

In in a much better place now and is even set to get married to his longtime girlfriend Tracey Edmonds.
