Just As Long As We're Together

It's really crystal clear that this week coming up is going to be extremely difficult for me to get through on my own. So I am making this thread now, so that there is a SAFE SPACE for me to come to, as I need it and I want it open to any and everyone else that needs it as well.

"Just As Long As We're Together"

You can live your own life and I'll live mine
I will never try to keep you down
And even if I only see you some of the time
I'm just happy when you come around
And even if the sun don't shine

I'm warm enough when
You're in these arms of mine
Just as long as we're together
Every thing's alright, every thing's alright

There is nothing that will overcome the love we share
Nothing that will break us apart
Girl, I gotta always have you in my ear
Gotta always have you in my heart
Oh baby, your place or mine?
I'll get the music, baby, you bring the wine

Just as long as we're together
Oh girl, there's nothing better
Just as long as we're together
Every thing's alright, every thing's alright

Just as long as there is you
I'll be around doing what you what me to
Just as long as there is me
I'll be around to sing that melody, sugar

Just as long as we're together
Oh baby, every thing's alright
Just as long as we're together
Oh girl, every thing's alright
Just as long as we're together
Oh girl, every thing's alright

Don't you know there ain't better oh


HOWEVER...I do KNOW that this is The ORG and the assholes are a plenty! I would honestly love to be on my very best behavior, but please, please, please...do not make the mistake of thinking that I won't be your motherfucking Huckleberry! e5019171.gif

Now as far as the song that inspired this post...I was 9 years old when I first heard it. And real talk...I totally believed Prince, right then and there.

Looking back now, in hindsight, over the 38 years since...this was actually the first song that made me smile and honestly feel good about listening to Prince's music again, since his departure from this realm because I got to see it...play out...in real time.And what it became...good...bad...and otherwise. nod

The Beautiful One mushy I remember thinking when this picture out that I hadn't seen that fire in his eyes for a long time. It was a beautiful sight. sigh

I was 10 yrs old when I saw the Promo 45 in Audrey & Del's Wrecka Stow in Buffalo, NY (My Hometown). Bought it for 50 cents (even though They were "Not For Sale"). And THAT was My introduction to Prince!! I mean, "Soft And Wet" was on the radio. But THIS was the Song that got Me!!

"Ooh Baby, Your place or Mine?/I'll get the Music, Baby. You bring the Wine!!" Straight GAME!!!

cool

I swear for those of us that were just kids way back then, he was like the Pied Piper personified. The moment we heard him, our journey began. And for some of us, even now, it STILL continues. touched

Okay...first...thank you so much for posting this! hug

So of course, I know this is from the "Black Sweat" video but I was sitting here listening to "Sexy Dancer" as I saw it. And the combination was just so delightfully fantastic...I cannot seem to stop laughing! lol

Love that Song! I found it so cool that even early on he was doing the songs with longer jams that actually took you somewhere. This was something that blew my mind! I will say that I did not get the album until maybe 85. (before that I was under the watchful eye of a tattle tail older brother). So I had a few singles as early as 1980...and I had Controversy...until by bro showed it to mom... it was the last song that did me it!

anyway: It is a shame that he did not do it more live. I have one version at the Atl Rick James show.... it is worth checking out/

With Love, Honor & Respect for all of you...no matter how I argue or disagree my heart is full of love for you all...
