Life to Lyrics

I’m not sure about you but ever since I was put onto the “Braxton Family Values” show I was hooked. The sisters are totally hilarious and of course obviously the stand out sister was Tamar. Her and husband Vince Hebert have their own reality show that just wrapped “Tamar & Vince” and man for reality junkies like myself who just ate it up it was fun to watch. Not only for Tamar’s crazy shenanigans but they’re relationship. It totally reminded me of the ups and downs of marriage and was very relatable to my own.

Just celebrating my 7th year of marriage with my own husband I pray we are finally over that “petty” stage you know that stage where you fuss and fight just when you were getting along so well. Sometimes the only thing you have to hang onto is the fact that you know there was a reason for the disagreement yet you have been feuding so long you’re completely exhausted to try and remember it. Or then there are also those fights that are more miscommunication that you both feel so strongly about your points that you don’t want to here the other’s opinion or feelings, but are dead set on getting your point across and obtaining an apology for your spouses “wrongness” or inability to be compassionate so you cling tight to your reservations instead of just conceding and sleeping in the same bed.

To my husband’s compliment I feel more in love and connected to him and our relationship than ever. Those sentiments were definitely earned and thus our genuine friendship. With that being said going back to Tamar, she’s just released a new song that I LOVE and the lyrics totally resonated with me. So I’m sharing…I may post a performance of her singing in my next post as well.

Ciao 😉

“Love And War”

[Verse 1:] Somebody said every day was gon’ be sunny skies, Only Marvin Gaye and lingerie, I guess somebody lied We started discussin’ it to fightin’ then don’t touch me please Then it’s let’s stop the madness just come lay with me And truth be told I’m wavin’ my flag before it goes bad yeah yeah ‘Cause we made it this far on for better or worse I wanna feel it even if it hurts If I gotta cry to get to the other side, let’s go ‘cause we’re gon’ survive oh

[Chorus:] We stay on the front lines Yeah but we’re still here after the bomb drops We go so hard we lose control The fire starts then we explode When the smoke clears we dry our tears Only in love and war

[Verse 2:] Sometimes you’re my general, you quarterback all these plays Sometimes you’re my enemy and I’m throwin’ grenades We’ll just be chillin’ and laughin’, I’m layin’ on your chest Don’t know what happened ‘cause things just went left But here we go back down that road That’s just the way that it goes ‘Cause we made it this far on for better or worse I wanna feel it even if it hurts If I gotta cry to get to the other side, as long as you’re there I’ll survive oh

[Chorus:] We stay on the front lines Yeah but we’re still here after the bomb drops We go so hard we lose control The fire starts then we explode When the smoke clears we dry our tears Only in love and war

[Vamp:] As long as we make up after every fight when it’s over You know I’m comin’ home right there where I belong I’m takin’ off this armor oh-oh-oh-whoa-ooh-oh-oh

And we stay on the front lines Yeah but we’re still here after the bomb drops We go so hard we lose control The fire starts then we explode baby When the smoke clears we dry our tears Only in love and war Only in love and war Only in love and war
