Reis naar USA – oktober 2012 Dag 4 – Middag – De Waterval

Vanuit JoeBean bel ik J, ze heeft me een aantal keren gemaild over haar plannen voor Rochester en het lijkt me leuk haar te ontmoeten. Ze is lief en lijkt op de een of andere manier erg onzeker. We drinken samen nog een overheerlijke koffie van JoeBean en besluiten dan de bezienswaardigheden van Rochester te […]

I just can’t do it – if I am not in love

JUST CAN’T DO IT (IF I’M NOT IN LOVE)
Written by Melanie Safka

Well I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
And I’m not in love with you

There was this song I used to sing
This kinda was the gist
If you can’t be with the one you love
Love the one you’re with
I’m not into being used
Or making someone a fool
And I’m not in love with you

And I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
And I’m not in love with you

Back in my room I got a vibrator
Gonna turn into a chronic imaginator

But I just can’t do it, uh, uh, uh
I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
And I’m not in love with you

Oh I’m real, real lonely and it’s been so long
But there’s just some things a girl must do alone
Though I’d like to do the things you want to do
I’m not in love with you

And I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
I just can’t do it if I’m not in love
And I’m not in love with you
(See you tomorrow)
I’m not in love
(With my clothes on)
I’m not in love
(Not ‘cause I’m Catholic)
I’m not in love with you

Woodstock Legend Melanie and Performance in the Digital Age

Melanie’s new album is not available right now on iTunes, Pandora, Sirius/XM right now, and I feel lucky to have a copy of the singer-songwriter’s latest work, “Ever Since You Never Heard of Me.” Melanie, who is one of my mother’s favorite singers, has had a limited number of copies produced, and has not sought […]
